What is a Fanlisting?
A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join.
Basically, it is a listing of fans that like a certain subject. In this case, the subject is Japanese Dramas.

What are Japanese Dramas? Japanese Doramas?
Japanese dramas are broadcast in three-month long seasons, with new dramas airing each season. The majority of dramas are aired weekdays in the evenings around 9:00pm, 10:00pm, or even 11:00pm. Dramas shown in the morning or afternoon are generally broadcast on a daily basis, and episodes of the same drama can be aired every day for several months. The evening dramas, however, air weekly, and are usually 9 to 12 episodes long, though sometimes there will be an epilogue special made after the final episode if the drama has been a huge success.

Japanese television seasons are: Winter (January - March), Spring (April - June), Summer (July - September), and Autumn or Fall (October - December).

One characteristic of Japanese drama that differentiates it from others is that each episode is usually shot only a few (23) weeks before it is actually aired. Many fans have been able to visit their idols' shooting scenes at the same time the show goes on air.

Why I love J-doramas?
I started to watch Japanese dramas around 2005. The very first Japanese drama I watched was Stand Up! starring Ninomiya Kazunari, Yamashita Tomohisa, Narimiya Hiroki, Oguri Shun, and Suzuki Anne. I remember the very first reason why I watched it, for Yamashita Tomohisa. After the series, I wanted to find more of YamaPi's dramas. I started to love other actors like Matsumoto Jun, Matsuda Shota, Oguri Shun, Ikuta Toma, Koike Teppei, and many many more. Needless to say, I became addicted to watching Japanese dramas. It was not just for the idols that starred in the drama, but for the storyline, humor, and so on.
