With so much extra time on my hands this year, I got through loads of J-drama! That’s a lie of course, as I marathoned a bunch this month just so this wasn’t barebones. Come read if they were trash or not!
Rinku is a very enthusiastic girl who grew up on a small African island, and while she may be unfamiliar with a lot of things, she really likes H Jungle With t’s 1995 hit single Wow War Tonight.
Mafuyu and three other college students want to be successful manzai comedians, so they go to a high school and… mime a band performance? They spend the rest of the episode thinking it’d be nice to be comedians.
Seven young boys have been brutally murdered, yet the killer is still at large. William Moriarty is on the case, though his idea of justice is a little different from what you might expect from a so-called crime consultant.
On an island in the middle of nowhere, a school has been setup to nurture students who possess incredible ‘talents’. The hope is that they’ll use them to fight the Enemies of Humanity, a rather aptly named group of monsters, but there are concerns that they may have already infiltrated the island.
Glenn and Saphentite, a human and a lamia, are two doctors who treat a variety of different species. Despite their professionalism on the job, this is an anime so things get horny quickly.
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane still like each other, and are still too egotistical and embarrassed in equal measure to go ahead and admit it. Strap yourselves in for another season of misunderstandings, comical situations and failed attempts at getting the other person to admit their feelings.
Tsurugi Hina has just moved to a coastal town with her family, just in time to start high school. She’s looking forward to joining the handicrafts club at her new school, but after a chance encounter with another student, she ends up joining the breakwater club instead.
The evil taints, born from negative emotions towards literature, are threatening to wipe books out by invading their stories. Only real-life famous authors can save them, by delving into the books and ensuring the stories play out the way they are meant to.
With the end of Zi-O and the beginning of Zero-One, the Neo-Heisei era of Kamen Rider is now over. Not only this, but it fits perfectly into the last decade, meaning I have an excuse to take a look back at the last ten years of Kamen Rider, and assign arbitrary awards instead of moaning about how bad they were.
Whether you want tower block murder mysteries, successful scam artists or giant monsters beating the stuffing out of each other, you’re in luck because J-drama has it all. Here’s a look at what I watched this year.

Now attending demon school, Iruma must conceal his true identity as a human, or risk being eaten.
