I discovered Japanese dramas quite by accident. I was searching for manga scanlations when I came across a video of a “live action” adaptation of a manga. Curiosity piqued, I watched it. It was cheesy and corny and ridiculous – and I loved it.
I like vampires, so I thought, “Wonder if there are any more Japanese TV shows with vampires?” Voila!

…..and many more.
I’m sad. I can’t find another Jdrama that interests me. Think I’ll give Kdramas a try….
And that pretty much sums it up. Once in a while I’ll come across an older Jdrama or even a movie that I missed.
I also keep a look out for new Jdramas or movies with my favorites or with a story that interests me.
And so another Asian drama addict was born.
