I couldn't find a thread about this drama so I racked up my CR points and decided to start one

This 2004 Jdrama Pride is truely TRUELY under rated and under watched.
Its about Hockey, Love, friendship, strength, and determination.
Alot like the Mighty Ducks buh in Japanese and stretched into 11, 45 minute episodes

It has a very simple story line:
Halu(Kimura Takuya), the main male character is a young, driven ice hockey player; or as they like to call themselves, Ice man. He's a serial player, flitting from girl to girl, treating love like a game. He captains the "blue scorpions" a company owned hockey team, which competes against others of their kind.
After a game, he decides to hit on a girl in the bar, who on initial sighting calls her a "last century lady". After he makes an interesting play for her, she gives him her name, Aki(Takeuchi Yuko) and her mobile number.
So begins a love game, for Aki is bravely waiting for her boyfriend, who hasnt contacted her in over 2 years, to return from overseas and Halu is too much of a player to commit to a relationship.

This drama is centered around Aki and Halu's growing relationship and love for one another, the people surrounding them and the problems that they face.

It's deep and moving, very naturally acted with absolutely no fluffy-ness.
What I love about this drama is that its not an "idol drama" a drama in which the actors are
from bands or models. This is acted by seasoned actors with an excellent screenplay and beautiful camera work. A mature drama, for those who want to take away something from 7-8 hours of watching
The ending is great; no cliff hanger, no dying. The whole story just draws you in and keeps you watching till the end.


Needless to say I loved this drama. Post you opinions ^^

For months I skipped over Pride because I was sure I would hate it because c'mon--- Japanese hockey? Not really what I want to watch. But after seeing Long Vacation, I got really into Kimura and tried it out and now it's my #5 most fav asian drama. It's a really good, nice, well acted drama that you can return to when you need perking up

i'm not sure if the thread itself is talking about pride drama, it must be about kimura takuya.

cheers!
