Since we've been talking a lot around these parts about Nodame Cantabile lately, I thought it was only fitting to address the live action version of the show on this week's Dramataku. If you've seen the anime or read the exce...
Did you find that last week's Dramataku selection was too silly for your tastes? Fear not, this week we're back with something that's lighter on the romance and heavy on the cream sauce. I know what you're thinking: is that s...
