Well, I didn't have a whole lot of luck with a similar thread for 2013, but let's see if we can get at least a tiny bit of discussion happening this year.

First up in CR's drama offerings for 2014, is Divorce Chaser. I'm going to give it a try. What about you?

And now for Spring GTO Taiwan is starting. I watched the first couple of episodes, and I'm afraid it's even less my thing than Divorce Chaser was.

ETA: Two more for Spring: S.D.B. National Police Agency Special Defense Bureau and Gokuaku Ganbo. Sadly, after watching a couple of episodes of each, I did not enjoy either one much.

But what do you think?

I don't mind watching dramas but I only have an anime membership and this show requires a drama or all access membership.

A little yes, a little no? I guess it depends on what you think is hot. The hottest so far, imo, because I do like her looks, and she's sassy and funny, is the PI Umemoto Kurumi:


Sadly, she's about the only fun thing about the show, and to be honest I'm not sure who this show is supposed to appeal to. Maybe I'm missing something on a cultural level, because it just seems dull and moralistic, without much except superficial variety in the three episodes I've seen so far. So, I'm not sure if there's something it's making fun of, or if it is what it appears to be to me--a divorce-law case-of-the-week procedural, with a basically serious story in which there's no doubt who the bad guy is, topped with a little levity in the form of the main divorce lawyer guy with the goofy looks who's a little flamboyant in his style of acquiring justice and has a baking quirk, his one-note landlord, a wacky waitress, and the aforementioned detective Umemoto Kurumi.

I guess in future episodes we might see some slight variations in the cases taken on, and

(speculation beneath spoiler)


but I'm not going to keep watching long enough to find out, and such a possibility doesn't hold any appeal for me anyway.

I'd love to read some opinions that differ though, so do speak up if you're out there!

Where are all the J-Dramas on Crunchyroll?? Not really interested in the K-Dramas only because i'm trying to learn Japanese! Seems like 90% of the dramas are Korean, what gives???

I was going to suggest using the Genres filter to show just the Japanese titles (many of which are actually movies) but when I tried that almost none of the newer JDrama that I know are available to me were showing up. So much for that idea.

Anyway, I do get the impression it's been harder to get JDrama than KDrama (for everybody--not just CR), but that Crunchyroll is now more actively acquiring rights to JDrama--we've been getting a couple of titles every season both simulpub and catalog additions.

For some discussion on the topic, you might want to look at the last pages of the Do You Like J-Drama thread, starting with this post: /forumtopic-828729/do-you-like-j-drama?pg=24#45310509

Regarding CR's plans,see this article at ANN:

Thanks for the info! :)
Yeah i tried the search with filters but got the same thing, it doesn't seem to be tagged right.
I've been searching out other sources from peoples suggestions on the forum and found some good stuff.

I see we're getting Switch girl both 1 and 2. I personally enjoyed it, I don't know how how others would feel about it. I'll admit it's kinda silly lol
