I was wondering If you knew about any Japanese Dramas that are english subbed. I found at this one site that Buzzer Beater starring Yamapi has english subs-heres the site: http://keiko.upwind.org/miscellaneous/shopping/2009%20-%20Buzzer%20Beat/

Do you know of any other ones or was this a one time deal??

I'd heard someone mentioning this as well. Unfortunately, none of the trustworthy retailers (CDJapan, YesAsia) list Buzzer Beat as having English subs, so it's hard to tell if FujiTV just decided to add them in at the very last minute or what. I recently contacted FujiTV about something else and was informed that none of their other recent releases included official English subs, but again, it's really had to tell if that's the case when even the box that supposedly did have official subs doesn't list them on any of the retailers.

I'll try and contact them again and see if they can shed any more light on the issue.
