Recommend some dramas that a guy might enjoy.

It's for a first timer so something to start him with.

I'm thinking GTO, Gokusen, and My Boss My Hero.

Stand Up!! lol. It's kind of like a Japanese version of "American Pie," so I bet guys would like that.

A guy friend (who is straight and nerdy) and I watched "Densha Otoko" together, and he thoroughly enjoyed it, so guys (especially the nerdy types) would like that show, as they would [email protected] (which is about otakus, but not as romantic as Densha).

Gokusen and GTO for sure. Teachers who kick butt (and sometimes have ties to the underworld) are always great.

Maybe "Maou" because it has a darker and more action-y premise than most dramas.

"Nodame Cantabile," although based around a certain couple (and technically a romantic comedy), is great for anyone who loves music.

I'm thinking anything funny and revolving around a male character, pretty much, assuming that this is your typical fun-loving guy (nothing too mushy, etc). For example, if he's like a total jock I wouldn't know what to recommend because I don't watch a lot of sports dramas, but if he's, like, gay and/or a total romantic I could recommend like fifty dramas (with lots of cute boys to crush over). (EDIT: That's not me stereotyping, okay? :D) So it depends. Also, if your friend is an anime/manga fan, lots of mangas/animes have been adapted into dramas (and vice versa) so you can start there for ideas.

It depends on the boy really, you can't really assume that just because he's a boy, he'll want to watch action & comedy, for example, one of my best friends loves romance novels (& he's completely straight). So, couldn't they just go to the Reccomended drama thread for suggestions on the genre they enjoy?

Wow, I wasn't expecting to write that much.

Semi-Gods and Demi-Devils 2000

all the girls are extremely pretty in there, even the moms and grandmas...
and it has fighting and brotherly love...
not to mention it has the most beautifully woven plotline ever.


Duke of Mount Deer
every guy who has watched it loved it
of course, some versions are better... but seriously, being the main character is every straight guy's dream (7 wives, each a different personality)

(ignore the random guys that's not Huang XIaoming...they're not part of the drama)

I just recommended some just a few days ago! I showed him "Nobuta wo Produce" and "Zettai Kareshi". Yeah, Zettai Kareshi is kinda a girly drama, but I thought he'd find it funny. But Nobuta wo Produce is a good choice!

depends on the guy really. i started watching dramas with meteor garden a couple of years ago when a friend asked me too...and i was bored so i said sure lol. when recommending (well more like forcing people to watch 'cause often times i get looked at funny when i say i watch asian dramas), i usually say nobuta wo produce and get good feedback. unless you're absolutely sure he'd only enjoy something with some sort of violence in it, give nobuta wo produce a try.

if you're sure he'd want some sort of violence, i'd recommend against gokusen as a first drama. it's just not a good representation of what dramas can offer, at least in my opinion.

edit: yay at the post just above mine :].

Nodame Cantabile - He might enjoy the anime-like approach of this drama
Kekkon Dekinai Otoko - The main character is so weird it's fun to watch, perhaps more so from a male's viewpoint
Bengoshi no Kuzu - About screwed up lawyers ; really funny and irreverent
