Yama-chan In My Eyes

Filed under: Yamada Ryosuke — amaiyume @ 3:03 am

Now I don’t know how many of you have watched Hidarime Tantei SP but since I am dependent on subtitles, it took me a little longer than most. But I did watch it and…wow is all I can say.

Now I’m going to admit my love for Yamada had waned over the period of my fandom. I don’t know…usually I don’t think much of “overexposure” but I’m thinking that’s what happened. I mean, it wasn’t a matter of Yamada always being in front of Hey! Say! JUMP that bothered me…it was the NYC boys that pushed it over the edge. And maybe I wouldn’t have taken it so personally if I didn’t love B.I. Shadow so much…I don’t know. Whatever the reason, he slipped on my list of favorites. But after watching Hidarime Tantei, he’s back up there!!

He did an absolutely FANTASTIC job of acting! I don’t wanna spoil things for those of you who haven’t seen it but there is this absolutely heartbreaking scene near the end that made me cry. You can say what you want about Yamada but you have to admit that the boy has got some serious acting chops. He also looked fantastic, as expected. I’m very much excited to watch the new series once I can get some subtitles.

So yes, Yama-chan has rose in my eyes in my list of Hey! Say! JUMP. Speaking of which, I think I’ll post a list of where everyone is at on my current spectrum so you all can see how I’m feeling about the guys!! So did anyone else watch this SP and love it as much as I did???



  1. A LITTLE longer? Try months later. ;D That’s very late, dear.
    But at least you watched it!

    I guess Johnny gives Yama-chan so much attention because he deserves it. You have to admit, it’s not his fault at all. He doesn’t knock over the other boys to be in front, he’s just…in front. Which is wrong. But still.

    He’s a fantastic actor, but I think the plot was a bit…common. I could honestly predict some of the major parts, which I hate. I love being surprised (Think Liar Games. If you haven’t watched it, you MUST!) with these types of dramas, and I just wasn’t.
    I almost cried too, but it was only because of his awesome acting skills. xD Oh, I must re-watch it!

    • hahaha you’re right XD
      I’m always so slow on dramas but I’m so thankful to those who provide subs ^^

      Yep yep, I have to agree with you.
      He just has this kind of charisma that makes him the perfect front boy. He still should give the others a little more but I can’t deny that Yamada has the star power that makes him so fantastic 🙂

      really? Maybe I’m just slow because I didn’t see anything coming!!
      Like when Yamada caught the hand motion that his brother gave on the bridge…that was such a big flag and I didn’t see it! I mean I saw him do it but didn’t recognize it XD

      BTW, I thought the “daijoubu” stuff at the beginning was absolutely adorable. That alone almost made me cry XD

  2. hahaha i watch the special too. can only say it was awesome. i have to far watched the drama series up till episode 2 and i can only say that it gets even more interesting. i love watching yamada act and he is really good at it.

    as for always being in the front of the group i think height is also a factor as it would be weird if you place 2 shortest member at the side or behind as you would not be able to see them. the fact that he is the best dancer among them helps too ^_^ (my POV really)

    • yess! I’m anticipating it a lot and I know I won’t be let down 🙂

      yeah, you make a good point. He’s a great dancer and he deserves to be recognized for it. As for height…I can see what you mean…I see it more as a short height going more with a cuteness that Johnny can sell XD

  3. I watched HTE when it first came out without the subs and watched it again when subs came out and really I just like seeing him get punched. He’s most attractive to me when he’s in pain maybe XD

    Also I like his nurse lady friend. She’s hilarious.

    • hahhaa I remember you saying that him getting punched so much was really amusing XD

      And I thought so too!!
      She always made me laugh when she knew she wasn’t supposed to touch something hahaha

  4. I watched the special, but I have to say…The series is by far better so far. I think you’ll enjoy it.
