I've been watching anime for about 15 years now and I enjoy many many different genres such as action, romance, thrillers, sports, etc. I recently got into dramas about a year or so ago.

Dorama = Term for Japanese TV show?

What I'm wondering is if there are action based dramas or if there's another name for what exactly I'm looking for. I want some asian tv shows that DON'T involve romance. Romance is nice and all but there has to be something else out there besides love stories. I like romance but it usually involves me screaming at the TV "KISS HER FOOL! HURRY UP". I can see myself getting along with sports/action shows a lot easier

Any suggestions? Whether the show is on Crunchy Roll or not doesn't matter to me. So far "Kurosagi" has been the closest thing to what I'm looking for.

Most closest to 'Kurosagi' that I seem would be

'Mr.Brain' is great show, it's crime solver and good humor. It's similar to American TV series 'the Mentalist'.

This show's my favourite. It's comedy/Asian version of 'the X-Files'. Title: 'Trick'. There're 3 seasons, 2 specials and 3 movies.

'Keibuho Yabe Kenzo' is spin-off of 'Trick', you will like this if you like 'Trick' that is.
