Beach Boys (Japanese Drama)

This is my favorite Japanese Drama, and also the subject of an earlier post. My biggest complaint about the show was that the only release available had really terrible video quality. I really should have gotten this post together earlier when 7-go started uploading the new bit torrent files in June 2007.

If you've never seen it, it's a buddy comedy about life, growing up, taking responsibility and mostly about being true to yourself. It has a great cast, Sorimachi Takashi, Takenouchi Yutaka, Hirosue Ryoko, Inamori Izumi, Mike Maki, Hara Sachie. It was very popular when it was first broadcast 10 years ago in the summer of 1997. If you can't afford a trip to the ocean this summer then download this, it's almost as good as an ocean sunset on a deserted island or a message in a bottle.

Download the improved medium quality bit torrent files here, the soft subs can be downloaded here. Thanks to 7-go for all his hard work on this much improved video quality release. I'd still really really love to see a high quality video release of this series!

Wow! Thanks man!
But it seems that most of the other episodes are not being seeded. If you could help out with the rest I will gladly seed these eps for a week or so.
Thank You

Hi Mr.Kevin.

I'm from Japan. I like the best "Beach Boys".

best scene is..

Kaito's boss fishing talks about "life" to two "Boys" on the breakwater.

Hi Kid,

My favorite is when the three of them go camping and they realize that they'll need to find their own dreams. That and the hero walking off into the sunset in the end. I just wish that I'd seen the special with English subs.
