I’ve decided to sub the drama series “Nishiogikubo Mitsuboshi Youshudou” which starts next month. I wasn’t planning to pick up any dramas this season initially but this came along… and it sounds like something I will like, a Shinya Shokudo-ish slice of life but with cocktails and canned food instead lol. Based on the manga by Asai Sai, this is Machida Keita’s first drama lead and I realized this will be my 4th 5th dorama tokku project. Looking forward to the rest of the cast and special guests!


The story is set in Nishi-Ogikubo, a small town sandwiched between Kichijoji and Ogikubo. In a corner of Nishi-Ogikubo is a bar called “Mitsuboshi Youshudo”. It is a small bar run by three former classmates: a handsome bartender Amamiya (Machida Keita), a reserved chef Nakauchi (Fujiwara Kisetsu), and the owner Kobayashi (Morisaki Win). The bar has a mysterious charm that attracts people with worries about various things in their lives; they step in unconsciously, attracted by its atmosphere…. Meanwhile, the three men working at the bar also seem to have their own issues…

    1. yeah it does sounds very shinya shokudo ne, but instead of izakaya food, this bar serves cocktails and canned food lol.

  1. Such good news! After seeing the promo info posted by Keita Machida’s on IG, was so hoping it would be translated. Thank you so much, Mich. We all sure do appreciate all that you do for us!!! ❤️️👍

  2. Hi, thanks, it is a great news!
    If you have a chance next term or even after that, please consider subbing “Joshikousei no mudazukai”. Keita Machida plays a teacher brilliantly! Plus the girls are really characters! I repeated cherry magic so many times and this drama, joshikousei… is another one I repeat all the time.

    1. Hello,I respectfully add myself to this request. I was watching it and maybe the person subbing it drop it and we only could see upto episode 4. Joshi Kosei no Mudazukai has a good comedic pace and of course Keita Machida makes it a must. Thank you for picking up his new project.

  3. There is surprisingly little information on MDL for this dorama – they don´t even list one co-star as of yet. But the storyline sounds nice. Thanks Mich.

  4. I’m sooooo glad you chose to pick this up, thank you *O*
    That will be my shiny star, I’ll be watching it with a dear friend and we both cannot wait for it to start. You seriously made it not only my day, but “my day” for the next weeks and months to come… tanoshimi ni <3
    Thank you!!!

  5. Thank you so much for picking this up! been following your subs since Rental nan mo shinai hito and Cherry Maho, excited to see this new drama with Machida Keita 🙂

  6. Machida Keita…mmm… Yaasssssssssss!! I’m excited for this now. I haven’t heard of it, but am now looking so much forward to it. Thanks.. I miss Kurosawa and Adachi very much. I hope Eiji makes a special appearance.. lol
