I enjoy watching political dramas (e.g. West Wing) and this one is no different. Change dorama is still on-going (third episode as of press time) and it has already exceeded my expectations. I saw how Japanese conduct their campaign (they use a van and travel around the city and candidates wear a sash bearing their name for example) and I expect to learn more about Japanese politics and the workings of their Diet (Parliament) in future episodes.
The Japanese are good in developing cliff hangers toward the end of an episode – that’s why I prefer to watch finished series than on-going ones. Episode two of Change left me and my father hanging – there’s episode three in Veoh but it has no subs yet. Hahaha…I think one of the subbers has an exam so the release of the third episode might be delayed – no problems though. Thanks to the fan subbers I get to see excellent series such as this.
Excellent series...watch the final episode as the actor does a twenty minute uncut speech! Compelling towards the end...
