Everyone dream of success in life but it is not easy to find lifetime achievers in the real world we are living in. This would be one of the reasons why people love dramatic success story overcoming failures and setbacks, even though it is commonly happening in TV dramas.

The story revolves around the lives of four young adults who grew up together.

In a blend of personal choices and circumstances beyond their control, each individual embarks on different paths that reflect the chaotic nature of the time as well as their true character. As their paths collide, love, friendship, loyalty, vengeance, moral conscience, and ideology become driving forces to irrevocably change the course of their lives.

Miki finds out her mother has cancer. The doctor gives her the advice to not tell her mother, or other family members about it.
Makes you wonder if you really would want to know how long you had left to live if you were seriously ill. Would it really make you feel any better?
I look forward to working on this drama. Kobayashi Ayako and Izumi Pinko is in it. I’m not so familiar with the rest of the cast. It seems to have an interesting plot, and it has the same narrator, screenwriter, and music composer as Oshin.

The books follow Harry Hole, a police struggling with alcoholism and his own demons, who works for Crime Squad, later on with the National Criminal Investigation Service (Kripos).
Right now I’m reading Phantom, I don’t think this book is so good.
I like the following the most. The Bat, The Redbreast (Harry calls Ellen), The Snowman, it reminded me a little of Kuchisake Onna.
I have also read The Headhunters and The Son by Jo Nesbø. The Headhunters have been made into a movie, and a movie based on The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender is being worked on.
Overall I think Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole series is okay, but he isn’t my favorite crime author. Read it if you got time.

I’m taking a temporary break from subbing to do some editing of the Jdrama Fansub Maps, sorting dramas by date first aired, and adding the function to sort dramas by; date, network, or title. While I’m at it I’m also sorting subtitles by status; complete, in progress, announced.
There are several subtitles either in closed communities, or subtitles in none-English languages where I can’t check if a drama has been completed. I’d like to encourage those who knows to update the status on FansubWiki.
