So I see how some of you guys are comparing Maou with the Korean version. That's fine...but one thing that I want to point out is to please DON'T assume Maou is going to follow the same ending as the Korean version!!! Sheesh people...those of you who already saw the Korean version know that Maou follows a completely different pace and format than Mawang, so it's possible the ending might be different. Sorry, I just needed to get that out (waits for hate mail)...


it's true it might end differently, I haven't seen the Devil at all, so I don't know what it's like in comparison (I would assume its different, since korean and japanese dramas differ in many ways).

*no hate mail sent* :DD

but hopefully I haven't heard what happened in The Devil... cause I don't want the ending of Maou to be spoiled ^_^

well ep 9 airs in Japan on Friday ;D. But depending on what her life is like (yes we do have other things going on beside CR haha) hopefully she'll have it up as quick as she has been!
Wonderful job IceFight~


Haha yeah as much as I'd love to ask TBS for it, I have to wait for it to air.
It should hopefully be fine tho, I have nothing due (except for English work, but my English marks are always bad no matter how much effort I put in so I can just rush it xD) but I'll probably have to work on my Art out of school. I'll probably do it tonight. xD
See this week I found that the earlier I did it, the more time I had, so I'm gonna try to have it up on Wednesday's or Tuesday's. xD

*This is not hate mail* xD
I haven't seen Mawang, I spoilt the ending for myself because I knew that I'd get upset if I saw a thoughtless comment without spoilers saying the ending (which I have seen about 5 in the past few days)
I just don't see how they could end it any differently... I can't think of any alternate endings and while it probably has a different format and pace, it probably still has the same characters, ideas and storyline in general. I'm sure there's been remakes that have been slow-paced and the other has been fast-paced. xD

Well, I personally haven't seen Mawang, but I did hear about some differences when compared to the Korean version:

1) The reporter in Mawang doesn't die
2) The relationship between Naruse and the viewers in Mawang is more distant, while we learn everything about Ohno's Naruse in the beginning

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Japanese directors have never really followed the original works, especially Japanese doramas that do not follow the original manga, like Hana Kimi and Yamada Taro Monogatari. Or, it could be just my wishful thinking wanting a different ending

Yeah, perhaps. I'm hoping Maou *doesn't* follow the same ending.

Die naoto die...!!! wahaha...just kidding.. *shakes in fear of Naoto fans shooting me in the head*... I don't want ryo to die obviously..As far as I can tell, Jdramas don't really follow the story lines of the manga or original shows they were based from, as doesuhancho said...look at Hana Yori Dango..They did a lot of editing to fit in all that stuff...Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part that I don't want Ryo to die... I can't think of an alternative ending though...I can't picture Ryo going to jail or Naoto being the one to put Ryo behind bars...Maybe Shiori's gonna die...haha...Impossible right?=) Gaaaah..!!! I can't wait for ep9!!! But I don't want Maou to end either...

I really wanna know what Naoto's gonna do now. Can he prove that Naruse is Amano Makoto or rather Manaka Tomoo? (that was his name,right? ^^") Okay, Shiori knows,too. But Naruse is a genius and it's gonna be tough to convict him...

i just thought...maybe... maybe ... the naruse shower scenes are somehow connected to the theme "truth in the rain"?!?!?! ehh? or .... maybe not... hahaha....

anyways, yeah, this is one of the series which i don't want to end yet.... after watching this, i watch arashi shows just to remind me that riida is only playing a naruse character...haha, he was so convincing...

and also toma, hehe, i always remind myself that naoto and nakatsu is played by the same actor... 'coz, i can't see the similarities...hahaha...

hm that's an interesting thought... *thinks* yeah might be something about it because i always wondered what the shower scenes were about... they just don't seem to fit the drama's theme, ne ? xD"
like toma said: it's not an ero-drama ^^"
btw: I dreamed ep.9 was on crunchyroll a day after it aired in japan. i was very happy xD" nya~ off topic

just finished watching ep8! wow! i must say that it is really getting more exciting..can't wait for the next episode..
but it really kinda makes you feel that the series is about to end. i'm just wondering.. if nino will still appear in any of the next episodes? i've just been thinking lately if he has an important/bigger role in the drama than what we have seen in the first episode
