- 仲間が主演じゃないんだSo Yukie Nakama isn't the lead
- 仲間ちゃんが主演じゃなくても出るのかよNakama-chan's still participating in this drama even if she isn't the lead?
- 仲間の落ちぶれ方がハンパねーなI can't believe how much Nakama's career has declined
- http://mdpr.jp/photo/images/2013/09/18/0_1109880.jpg仲間が主役にしか見えないｗ吉高はどうみても脇役顔Nakama totally looks like the lead here no matter how you look at it w
Yoshitaka on the other hand only has the face of a second fiddle.
- 吉高はなぜ評価されてるのかがわからん。連ドラの主役って器でもないのに。I really don't get why Yoshitaka is being regarded highly.
She doesn't have what it takes to play the lead in serial dramas.
- 仲間由紀恵が脇ってのがすごいなでも仲間由紀恵って意外と脇役でも軽い感じで出るよなエリートヤンキーとかWow, it's amazing that Yukie Nakama's just playing a supporting role.
But I think she'll still be able to play it lightly, like in Elite Yankee.
- エグザイルの脇とか仲間も仕事選ばなくなってきたなLooks like Nakama has stopped being picky about her projects
- 仲間は脇もやっといたほうが今後のためにも何かと良いけど吉高側はよく受けたな強気というかなんというかNakama doing supporting roles will benefit her career moving forward. But I'm surprised Yoshitaka's side accepted this role.
I'm not sure if she's just brave or what.
- 仲間と並ぶと不細工が際立ってないか？Doesn't she look so much uglier especially when she's beside Nakama?
- 中盤辺りから仲間由紀恵が主役になってるI feel that Yukie Nakama will be taking over the lead midway through.
- 鈴木亮平の変態仮面は本当に素晴らしかったｗまさかの朝ドラ出演おめRyohei Suzuki's Hentai Kamen was really marvelous. w
Congrats on this surprising morning drama role.
- 朝から吉高ヘン声、ベタベタした喋り方、据わった目爽やかな朝が台無しYoshitaka's weird voice, that sticky manner of speaking, her scary eyes right smack in the morning.
That'll just ruin the pleasantness of the morning.
- 黒木華って「純と愛」にも出てたし、映画でも引っ張りだこだし、再来年のAKかBKあたりでヒロインになりそう如何にもNHKが好きそうな雰囲気だしHaru Kuroki was also in Jun to Ai, and is also receiving lots of movie offers. She'll probably even be the heroine in the AK or BK in 2 years' time. She's also got a face that NHK seems to like.
- 能年のフレッシュ感はこれぞ朝ドラと思ったな仲間由紀恵は昔も朝ドラサブキャラじゃなかったっけI thought Nounen's freshness really fit morning dramas.
Wasn't Yukie Nakama a sub character in some morning drama a long time ago?
- 吉高好きな方だったけどガリレオでウザすぎてもう無理だわI used to like Yoshitaka, but she was so annoying in Galileo, I can't stand her anymore.
- 老人は吉高由里子の演技見てて苦痛だろうなThe heads of the elderly will probably ache from watching Yoshitaka's acting
- 朝ドラって基本主演はオーディションって聞いたけどもうこれって有名無実化してる？I heard that the lead of morning dramas needed to pass an audition first, or isn't that the case?
- 仲間はオワコンでＣＭオファーも激減だって『恋愛ニート～忘れた恋のはじめ方』（TBS系）初回のみ二桁で二話以降最終回まで一桁↓映画『劇場版テンペスト3D』公開初週でさえトップ10にも入らず3億円以下の興収↓『ゴーストママ捜査線〜僕とママの不思議な100日』（日テレ）『サキ』（フジＴＶ） どっちも平均一桁の大爆死↓最新作のＮＨＫ「島の先生」も平均６．１％Yukie Nakama's on the decline, and her CM offers have also been reduced.
Renai Neet (TBS) 1st episode got 2-digit ratings, while everything else until the finale got single digits.
Movie Tempest 3D didn't even make it to the top 10 during the 1st week and only earned below \300 million.
Ghost Mama Sousasen (NTV)
Saki (Fuji TV) -- Both averaged single digit ratings.
Latest drama on NHK Shima no sensei average 6.1%.
- ガリレオをトレンディードラマにした吉高か期待できないなYoshitaka who turned Galileo into a trendy drama?
Then I can't expect anything good out of this.
- 仲間由紀恵さすがに老けてきたなYukie Nakama's really aged
- 仲間由紀恵(33)Yukie Nakama (33)
- 次の朝ドラ始まってどれだけあまちゃんが早く過去の流行になっていくかに今は興味あるI'm interested in seeing until when Amachan will still be considered a fad, especially when the next morning drama starts.
- もっとフレッシュな若い子とかもう無理なわけ？So can't they use fresher, younger girls?
- 仲間の脇はいいよ変にキャラ立ててない美人で古風な女もはまるし仲間見るために見てもいいNakama's fine as a sub-character.
She'll just be a beauty without a forced character, and she'll also look good as an old-fashioned woman.
I'll probably watch this just to see Nakama.
- 鈴木亮平ってイケメンなの？Is Ryohei Suzuki an ikemen?
- 能年や橋本愛に比べると新鮮さが足りないわなThis lacks freshness when you compare it with Nounen and Ai Hashimoto...
- 窪田きゅんが出るんだ清盛の時に好きになったから嬉しいSo Kubota-kyun's in it too.
I liked him in Kiyomori so I'm happy.
- 朝ドラは基本的に無名女優路線で行けよ知名度が高い役者を使ってもハズレ作は結構あるぞMorning dramas should continue using the relatively unknown actresses.
There are quite a lot of misses even if they used popular ones.
- めごっちが叩かれて同じくらいブスな吉高が叩かれない理由がわからんI don't get why Megocchi is being bashed, while Yoshitaka who's as ugly as her isn't
- 吉高って蛇とピアスだったか、あの頃から大根で今も同じだな役者としてどういう立ち位置なんだろうか、華もないし事務所が強いんだろうなとしか思えないYoshitaka's always been a ham actress, even when she was in Hebi to Piasu, and that hasn't changed.
I wonder what her status is as an actress, she doesn't even have that aura of glamour.
All I can think of is how powerful her agency is.
- 冒険はしないって感じで名前のある人で手堅く固めた感じだなぁ朝ドラヒロインはやっぱりオーディションで選んでほしいIt feels like they're not venturing too much, and they're going for the solid route by casting popular actors.
I still want morning drama heroines to be selected through auditions.
- 圧倒的に仲間の方がオーラあるなNakama has the overwhelming aura here.
