Very interesting thoughts! I agree, they could have done so much more with her character. I wonder how she is in the book. I'd like to know why she gets along so well with Tokai and why he trusts her.

Neko-chan definitely feels flatter than the others of late... I really want to know more about the history between her and Tokai.

Only two more episodes... and so much more to be revealed.

I'm already hoping for a second season. There's just so much they can still do with the relationships between the different characters. Two episodes seems way too short. I wonder whether there's a way to get my hands on the book (without having to pay extreme amounts of import taxes <.<), though I expect it will be a while before I'm close to being able to read it XD.

I'm interested to see how they wrap things up in the next couple of episodes. There wasn't much of an arc in this drama, and the whole obsession with machines performing surgeries looks to be dwindling. Although 99.9 was the same way and it's one of my favorite dramas of all time and they got a second season! So, we'll see how it goes.

Can't wait until all the mystery revealed, Doctor Saeki and Tokai's father problem in the past. I want a second season too, or an SP!

Has anyone read the book?

I wouldn't mind getting second season or at least a SP. I love Nino's acting here ^_^

I'd like to read the book since there's a 1991 edition, and one that's a little later. Is that when the book takes place? IDK if I can find it in English, though.

There's something I've been wondering about j-dramas... Why does the duration of an episode vary so much. For example, the first two episodes of Black Pean are around 1hr 9min, then ep3-8 are 46min 30sec and then ep9 is suddenly 1hr 4min. I kinda get why ep1 might be longer, but not the other episodes. Why not just air one more episode? Or two.

I'm not complaining, just wondering. 'Cause after watching ep8 I thought that they still had a lot to explain and wrap up and only two episodes left, until I read that the next episode was going to be 20min longer than usual.

The first thing I noticed about the ninth episode was also the extra length, but I can't say I mind longer episodes. I wonder how long the last one will be... and how much of the questions they'll leave open for a SP or a second season.

I don't mind the length, and sometimes I don't even notice it while I'm watching it. I'm eagerly waiting for the subs because they revealed A LOT in this episode and I'm not in the know! I need to know!

I probably notice it because I encode :D A "normal" episode is around 4.7GB whereas for example ep9 is 6.4GB.

Can't wait to watch the latest episode with subs tonight!

This was the first episode I finished without subs first XD. (I tried an earlier one, but didn't get to the end before giving up.) It's enough to get the basics, but the subs definitely cleared up a whole lot.

I hope there's something more to Tokai's dislike of Saeki though. At the moment there isn't a lot of betrayal involved. I suspect that Saeki was the one who left the pean in there and put all the blame on Tokai senior... and I've been thinking that way for several episodes already.

I hope that isn't the case. I mean, as much as I don't really trust Saeki, I hope he isn't that dastardly.

Maybe so... but right now it's as if Tokai is going after his own benefactor without reason.

Also... why would Saeki hide the patient from Tokai if everything was handled the way it should have been? I think the patient knows something he isn't supposed to tell Tokai. Something just feels wrong (or incomplete) about the story they told Miwa.

As much as I love this drama it kinda feels like they spent a lot of time building up things, like what kind of surgeon and person Tokai is, that they are now running out of time because there is only one episode left. The final episode will be longer, but 15 minutes extra isn't really much. We'll see...

If they do it right then the extra 15 minutes might make a difference instead of walk us in circles. So will it be 1 hour and 15 minutes or just the regular 45 minutes with the extra 15? The last episode was a whole hour!

I think it's going to be 1hr 'cause the normal duration is 45min.

Well... The pean was left in there by Saeki, but... this was the first episode I actually rather liked the guy. Chances of a second season seem slim though.

And here I was thinking they created an ending that kinda gives a feeling that there could be season 2 lol

(No double posting btw ;) )
