New Japanese Titles Coming to Viki! ヤッター!

Over the past few years, we’ve received an increasing number of requests for J-dramas. So we’re excited to announce that Viki now has many more premium Japanese titles available — with many more coming this month! Our extensive library ranges from classic hits to recently popular shows like “Documentary of AKB 48: Show Must Go On" and "Rinco's Restaurant."

Here are some of the exciting new titles coming to Viki!


The first season of “Mischievous Kiss: Love in TOKYO” is one of the most popular Viki series of all time, and the second season, “Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in TOKYO,” will be available on Viki soon! Yuki Furukawa returns as the brilliant and dashing Naoki and Miki Honoka returns as Kotoko, his new bride, in this exciting new chapter in their lives, starting on November 24! Get caught up with their lives prior to the start of the new season, watch the preview episode that follows Naoki and Kotoko on their honeymoon to Okinawa!

HERO

“HERO” is an upcoming drama starring SMAP’s Takuya Kimura as Kohei Kuryu, a prosecutor in Tokyo. Kohei’s unique methods set him apart from his colleagues in the Josai branch of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office. Catch “HERO” when it begins streaming on November 14!

Doctor-X, Season 2

We watched as the beautiful Dr. Michiko Daimon (played by Ryoko Yonekura) pushed for better medical care for her patients at a university hospital in the first season. Now, one fateful day at race tracks sets the course of events in this next installment of the wildly popular “Doctor-X” franchise.

Space Brothers

Based on the popular manga of the same name, “Space Brothers” follows astronaut Hibito and his older brother, Mutta, as they try to fulfill their childhood dreams to fly into space together. Director Yoshitaka Mori takes the story in a creative new direction in this live-action movie version by focusing on the brothers’ relationship and emotional struggles as they travel near and far for each other.

We’re excited to be working with TOHO, SPO Entertainment, and Fuji TV/FCC, and continuing our relationship with TV Asahi to keep bringing you more amazing Japanese titles!
