By chance I realised I had downloaded Orange Days (J-TV Sub) awhile ago onto my USB drive and not got around to watching it.
For those who don't know Orange Days is almost legendary in terms of popularity and features a awesome collection of hot young talent!
"Kai Yuuki (Satoshi Tsumabuki) is in his senior year at university studying social welfare psychology. At present, he is in the middle of job-hunting season. He is finding it difficult with no job offers so far.
One day, he meets a girl who is playing violin in the campus. She is Sae Hagio (Kou Shibasaki). In marked contrast to her beautiful tone and attractive looks, her personality is somewhat impertinent. And to top it off, she communicates through very vulgar sign language.
Four years ago, she lost the most important thing for a violinist - her hearing. As a result Sae closed off her inner self from the outside world.
Kai finds himself on a date with Sae, in place of his best friend. Unexpectedly, he comes into contact with Sae's private side.
Love, job-hunting, friendship... Setting a campus in spring as a dorama's backdrop, it's the start of a glittering youth drama."

So allot of big promising talent there and bags of quality acting awaits.
Only shame is that the subs fly past so you and end up hitting pause and rewinding because you blinked and missing part of what was said, that and the translation to the opening 2-3 minutes is a bit confusing.
