Japanese Drama Review – You’re My Pet (きみはペット) – Tramps Like Us

Do you like Japanese dramas? I love watching Japanese dramas. Sometimes I spend all day on watching to finish all episodes. Episodes of dramas used to be up to 15 or 16 but nowadays most of dramas are concluded with 8 or 9 episodes. It has become much shorter with various reasons. Perhaps TV productions have low budgets to make dramas and people does not spend their times on watching TV like they used to because there are other ways of entertainments are become available for enjoyment now. I hardly watch TV, to be honest.

Many Japanese dramas and movies are based on manga stories.  Manga stories are in a broad range of genres, comics, action, detective, romance, adventure, fantasy and business etc、you name it!!! And many manga are read by people of all ages in Japan. So when manga stories are used for making dramas or films, people are looking forward to watch them.


Manga stories are typically printed in black and white.

Today’s Japanese drama is also based on a mange story. “Tramps Like Us” Tramps Like Us is a Japanese manga series which were written by Yoyoi Ogawa.

You are my pet

I watched a 2003 live-action drama but I prefer this remake 2017 live-action drama. The story is much interesting compared to a 2003 live-action drama. One of the reason is that perhaps the writer had completed the series by the time the remake 2017 was made.

All episodes are available to watch on YouTube with English subtitle. So if you are a Japanese manga fun and drama fun why don’t you check it out. Learning Japanese from something you love is the best way to do! This drama for that purpose is recommendable.
