Crunchyroll partners with FUJI TV to stream 21 dramas


Some of them are required viewing

Remember when Crunchyroll used to show Japanese drama? I kid, but let's be honest, it's been pretty slim pickings on the drama front as so much time and effort was instead poured into acquiring anime simulcasts. However, this is about to change at least a little, as Crunchyroll have announced a new partnership with FUJI TV to bring 21 Japanese dramas to the streaming service. These titles are:

  • Gokuaku Ganbo
  • IRYU Team Medical Dragon S1-4
  • Galileo
  • Bookshop Biblia's Case Files
  • High School Entrance Exam
  • A Taste of Honey
  • Desperate Motherhood
  • The 101st Proposal
  • Always the Two of Us
  • Liar Game 1&2
  • Hard to Say I Love You
  • Switch Girl 1&2
  • Future Diary
  • Last Cinderella
  • Great Teacher Onizuka Taiwan
  • Great Teacher Onizuka 2013

So how about that? It's great to see some familiar names crop up, such as Future Diary (Mirai Nikki) and Great Teacher Onizuka, but personally I'm very happy to see Liar Game on the list. I may not have seen that many Japanese dramas, but I can wholeheartedly recommend the Liar Game series. Be sure to give it a look when the shows go live. 

For those of you that are more familiar with these shows, what do you recommend? I'm currently working through Densha Otoko and need something new to pick up!
