Would 'Last Friends' be as great, if the cast was totally different? =/

juri was awesome as ruka! no one could replace her & eita was great as well
ryo was also pretty awesome,
i don't know about michiru&eri though... they were good but maybe others would do it better... or worse....

At first, I was interested in LF because of the casts & Hikki's song which becomes this drama's soundtrack. I thought," Wow this drama has Juri, Masami & Eita in it. It must be great drama." After I watched the 1st episode, I realized that this story is different from the usual J-dramas. I became addicted to it & couldn't wait for Sousuke's next move. Besides, I love Juri's & Ryo's acting in this drama. Even though the story matters, this drama can not be this huge if the casts weren't them.

The story in itself is great, but to catch the attention of the audience they got the perfect cast.
They really did a good job in portraying their characters.
Plus the song that was used in the drama is really nice.
I first saw the opening of this drama then got intrigued because the video is great.
Plus the fact that I've seen all the main characters in other dramas, and I like them.
Ueno Juri did a great job as Ruka, Ryo as well. He made me want to punch him,hahaha! ^_^

I definitely believe we would all be able to enjoy this drama if the cast was completely different. We just got spoiled because the cast is what it is. They did an AMAZING job!

ruka gave it a big punch!!! i think no one can really surpass her.... she's just the perfect fit!!! anyone can replace michiru... and eita too... oops, sorry... i take that back, not eita... he's super adorable... they can take eri and ogurin away but totally not ruka who looks more manly than sousuke... JURI-CHAN TOTALLY NAILED THE PART!!!

i haven't gotten past episode 8 because i cant find the hardsubbed version of 9, 10, and 11.

i think the cast does a really amazing job, especially ruka and sousuke. michiru pisses me off a lot, but thats because of the character and not because of the actress' portrayal. its nice to see people who can actually act in a good show. =)

(i'm slightly biased because i love the nodame cantabile cast.)

Ueno Juri was definitely the main reason I started watching the series. Last Friends definitely showed her versatility as an actress because it was so different from Nodame Cantabile. I think she did a great job. I don't know if the movie would be the same without her.

Yes, i have to say that i was really impressed by Ueno Juri in Nodame and becoz of that drama, she became my fav japanese actress now, but after watching LF where she plays a totally different kind of character and yet still manage to pull it off excellently and convincing, i am now more than impressed lol

And not forgetting the chemistry she has in LF with Eita, it was wonderful. I think it's greater than the one Nodame has with Chiaki Senpai. seriously, i really hope to one day see Eita and Juri acting together again as a real couple, i think it'd be awesome!!!

And so if the casts are different, LF won't be this interesting for me. No one can beat Juri as Ruka and Eita as Takeru.



Totally agree with that.
it did bug me at first as i was so used to their character (being Nodame, Mine and Kiyora) but Last Friends characters grew on me and i like them too!

Trivia: Juri and Eita had acted together before, this Last Friends is probably the third time they act together (correct me if i am wrong)...hopefully more to come and hopefully they pair them up, they look cute together!

i randomly saw this drama from somewhere and was shocked to see juri's really short hair... i didn't recognized her at first and was really curious about this... seeing ryo made me think of 1 liter of tears.. i was blown away by the cast's performance esp. ryo and juri.. i've never hated a character as much as i did with sousuke to the fact that it's been 3 days and he still haunts me.. i don't know if anyone else would have pulled off sousuke and ruka as much as juri and ryo had.. i think it will be a whole lot different if it wasn't them!! i give them 10 hearts~!

To be honest Last Friends really drew me into J Drama's. The moment I saw the cast list [Ryo and Juri inparticular] I was like " I cannot miss out on this show", Hooked to the whole LF thing and J drama thing since.

Though, I did find Masami as a bit to strong for this role. Someone more vulnerable would have suited the role better.

Juri and Ryo are soooo good in this drama. I'm glad they were part of the cast, and Im glad the cast overall was great in the way they made the story come to life with so much 'realism'.

No way! no one can replace Ruka or Sousuke. I really liked Takeru also. Something about his acting is very real. Micheru is a new comer but she was well in the drama. I will admit there were times when i wanted to smack her myself but otherwise her "damsel in distress" role as good.

Ryo and Ruka were the best.
