1. Heartwarming & Comical Family Dorama [Rating: 6/10]
Okay, first, I'd gotta admit that I am no sucker for family-related dramas. The only reason why I watched this VCD was because I read from other reviews that the dorama is a comedy. Now, I AM A sucker for comedies (^^;), so I decided to go ahead and watch this dorama.

Oyaji is a story about the Kanzaki family (of five). Headed by "super-naggy" dad (Tamura Masakazu) who nags and lectures like a machine gun, the Kanzaki family also consists of eldest daughter (Mizuno Miki), second daughter (Hirosue Ryoko), youngest son (Okada Junichi) and a very sweet and docile mum (Kuroki Hitomi) who helps to keep the Kanzaki family sane. Typical of any other family dramas, everyone in the Kanzaki family will face a personal conflict which they have to resolve with initial objections from their stubborn dad.

Tamura Masakaz did quite well as a stern, no-nonsense dad who can, sometimes (and unfortunately), does nonsensical things. ^^; While we may sometimes get annoyed at the way he treat his kids or say mean things to them despite his true concern for them, it still bring tears to our eyes when he shows his concern through actions secretly (or bring laughters when he DID showed his concern openly and ended up ruining things -_-0) But I think the dorama was successful in a sense that the whole plot and casts were very down-to-earth. :)

Granted, there are tear-jerkers moments, but the dorama is also funny at times and you can't help laughing at their general silliness at times. The dorama also subtly talks about moral issues and certain situations are quite thought-provoking. My only gripe is that the story started off rather slow and some parts of the drama can get a little slow too. But I guess most dramas are like that so ... ^^ Also, the ending was kind of nice, but I think it was a tad too abrupt and predictable.

Lastly, as a personal (bias) opinion, what I wanted to say is, maybe I don't know who Oikawa Mitsuhiro was before this dorama, but I'm glad I did watch this drama because he was also one of the eye candy in the drama (IMO, IMO!!!). I think he did very well too and it kind of touched me at the end of his story. I guess it takes lots of courage to be able to do what he did, but then again, like I said, you can almost learn many things from the various characters in the drama; courage is one of them. :)

So, if you have the time, take the time to watch this drama with an open mind. While some of the situations can be predictable, it's also what make the drama heartwarming and so close to home. Who knows, you might learn something from the drama too. ^^

2. O Oyaji! [Rating: 9/10]
Ifve always been completely indifferent to family dramas. I almost always enjoy them, but never get excited or overly anxious to watch one. They are always justc there. After having finished Oyaji, however, I need to admit that I absolutely adore family dramas. I adore them because theyfre corny, because theyfre heartwarming, and because everyone who has ever lived in a family can relate to them.

Oyaji is a great drama about a stubborn father who does little more than lecture his family and the family members of others, who keeps a firm hand and tends to overly control those living beneath his roof. He is set in his ways and yells at anyone who will disagree with him. Tamura Masakazu plays the role perfectly. This is my first experience with him and I cannot imagine him in any other role. He was really fun to hate and although I failed to sympathize with him even at the end of the show, Ifm convinced that was his intention. Complimenting him beautifully was Kuroki Hitomi. There is little I can say that will communicate just how much of a fan Ifve become of hers. She plays the perfect housewife in every respect, and because shefs so sweet and kind you tend to hate anyone who hurts her in this drama. Hirosue Ryoko did a fab job as always, but her character was perhaps my least favourite. Okada Junichi and Ishida Yuriko provide the perfect balance (Ishida is such a diverse actress!). The breakout star (in MY frame of reference) was definitely Mizuno Miki. Why havenft I seen any of her dramas before? Not only could I relate to her as the eldest daughter of a strict family, but she ends up following the path I wish for myself.

I recommend this drama to anyone who enjoys a good family drama that is both heartwarming and real.

3. Spectacular performances featuring one of the best [Rating: 10/10]
If you are familiar and likes Fox's series drama, Party of 5, then you will no doubt like, Oyajii. While similar to a Japanese drama ver. of Party of 5, Oyajii maintains it's original concepts and perspectives.

Meet the Kanzaki family, 5 people who seems to be perfect individuals living ordinary lives. But as living in ordinary lives, comes of course the tough ordeals with it.

Each member of the Kanzaki family has his/her own problematic issues that deals with character conflicts; mostly in their inner circle as a family. Oyajii isn't all about dramaticness, it involves a great deal of humor in it as well. There would be times where you're looking for a roll of tissue because you're crying for a very sad scenario, but there are times where you will laugh too.

All in all, Oyajii is a family drama that deals with real family issues in real-life. It also implies ethical proportions that can be learned. This drama is so great that I can possibly even give it a higher score than 10 I tell ya! ^_^'

4. Great from Tamura and...Okada... [Rating: 9/10]
honest speaking, i like this drama more than i expected.

i actually watch this becuz im a fan of V6 and yes, Okada is in! my sister even called the tv station in our country when the showing time suddenly changed, and on the 'supposed date' we turned on our tv and saw nothing of this drama.

I love tamura alot!!! i think he look great even in his 60s. i was shocked because i thought he is definitely younger. i gave 9 becuz i dun like ryoko hirosue's character and the way she acted in this drama. i juz feel that anyone can easily act that role, but she do have that 'arrogant face' when trying to argue with her family members.

Great drama that makes me wake up earlier on Sunday juz to watch!!!

5. Heartwarming, Funny and Original Family Drama [Rating: 9/10]
This was a very good family drama with interesting twists. Each family member goes through their own problems, often keeping their problems to themselves. This is a drama that shows the strength of a family, how you can love and support family members even though you don't agree with their decisions. Tameru Masakazu steals the show with his acting, he's great as the meddling, overbearing and loud Dad. He's a nightmare, but it's only because he loves his kids so much. Also, Okada Junichi and Ryoko Hirosue are very good as well. There's some serious moments, but these are contrasted nicely with a healthy helping of comedy. Very entertaining and as such highly recommended.

An excellent all-round dorama. The top-notch cast succeeded in bringing this dorama to life by portraying these endearing characters to the audience. The chemistry between the cast was instrumental to the success of this dorama and the humorous plotlines definitely made the whole series very enjoyable. Despite the all-too-regular types of problems this family had to face (ie. pregnancies, school problems, marriage etc.) the script really made the situations unique and memorable experiences. Excellent OST and theme song for this seris as well!

Tamura Masakazu playing a role that only he can play ... actually, i could see Takeda Tetsuya playing this role too, but Tamura was classic in this one. as said in earlier reviews, it's a real family involving real-life situations. thoroughly enjoyable.
another great drama with an appropriate theme song. as you watch this series, you see each child try to move on his/her own way by moving out of the house ... ergo, sayonara, daisuki na hito (talking about the father).
i could watch this one over and over again. it's that good people.

the above synopsis is for otousan, a similar show featuring same guy who plays the dad but everyone else is different. Oh, hirosue ryoko is in both too but play diff characters. Her character here is vastly superior to her boring character in otousan. this show is about the stubborn dad, his wife, and 3 kids (2 daughters, 1 son).

This is very heartwarming family drama featuring a great cast and good stories for each character. Everyone was terrific in their roles and play off each other wonderfully. Don't miss this!

9. A really good family drama! [Rating: 8/10]
The Kanzaki family is an interesting lot but the Father played by Tamura Masakazu steals the entire show despite the 2 lovely daughters, son, and his wife (Mizuno Miki, Hirosue Ryoko, Okada Junichi, and Kuroki Hitomi). They face ordinary problems in an extraordinary manner.

Touching at times, funny at other times it is a nice blend of emotions that it creates and instills in the viewers at least for me.

It can be a little dull in a few parts and looses direction at time but well worth your time.

One of the best jdoramas I have watched. Great acting all around especially the father character. The father is different from your typical jdrama otousans because he is more flawed and an asshole. The plot is nothing special but it is the well rounded characters that truly make this a very good drama. Highly recommended

currently, i have yet to watch the finale, but i'll write my review first. best ensemble cast, everyone is perfect for this show; from the strict cranky dad to the brown face girl. miki mizuno was brilliant and i have watched her scene where she reveals her secret to her family so many times. ryoko hirosue was annoying at first but i cant see anyone else playing this role. lighthearted with original and non-slapstick humour, but also with real dramatic moments. i just hope the finale doesn't disappoint.

update: finale was a bit too sentimental and neat, but overall the show was great. the finale brought the rating from 10 to 9...
2. Comments by rikastar [Rating: 9/10]
A wonderful family comedy slash drama, a really good combination because it makes you laugh and feel touched at the same time. The cast is also great and do a great job - the dad who talks and nags too much but is actually really soft-hearted, the wonderful mum who is really too beautiful and caring to be true but I'm glad they showed that no one is perfect in her storyline, the quiet but strong older daughter, the outgoing and wilful younger daughter, and the directionless and kind young son. Underneath their problems and fights, I see that it is a family that really cares for one another.
3. Comments by supermidget [Rating: 8/10]
[On DVD] Good funny drama/comedy about a family that is being terrorised by the "stubborn dad" ("Oyaji"). The Oyaji cares very much for his family and has many (traditional) ideals. Too bad for him his 2 doughters and son have all kinds of problems that don't fit his ideology at all. A pattern seems to be children leaving the house because of their dad, then dad won't admit he misses them but still allows them back in the house. I still have to see the last few episodes, I'm really looking forward to how the finaly issues are being solved :-) Please give this drama a look

Perhaps the funniest Jdorama my wife and I have watched! Tamura Masakazu is one of our favorite actors and his portrayal of a cantankerous yet overly caring father (in a somewhat odd manner) makes this one most enjoyable to watch. Ryoko Hirosue also did a fabulous job as the rebellious daughter and has also become a household favorite with us. Miki Mizuno and Hitomi Kuroki also turn in stellar performances and we've gone out of our way to watch as many doramas as possible with these four characters. Bottom line: this one is our personal favorite!
5. Comments by Shindou [Rating: 9/10]
A first-class dorama! Kuroki Hitomi, Tamura Masakazu, Hirosue Ryoko, Okada Junichi, Mizuno Miki and Ishida Yuriko made up a very effective cast with great chemistry together. The plot flowed along with a good amount of humour and character development. There were definitely some surprises along the way and I very much enjoyed ryoko's performance in this series. She was vibrant and somewhat boisterous - very different from her subdued and quiet character in Summer Snow.

I have watched this sooo many times! It is hilarious! The father is played by the perfect guy for the part. You really feel like this bunch is a family because they all interacted so well. And at first, I thought his wife was his daughter she looked so young O_O;;! Anyway, I like how the story of love isn't forced out on all the characters. It's a drama that relies more on developing the characters than developing love situations.
7. Comments by EstherM [Rating: 8/10]
Man that family was a real pain! The mother is a pushover, so is the oldest daughter, the two younger kids are spoiled and the dad, oh my god, the dad is a major hypocrite. The grand bit is though that all what shouldnLt happen to a perfect Japanese family happens, morale has to be thrown out of the window at the end of each episode. Good stuff, great actors!!!
8. Comments by xploring [Rating: ?/10]
I like the story with Sayuri and Tadashi, the middle few episodes were absorbing/engaging than I expected, and Hirosue Ryoko was great as the cheerful, rebellious middle daughter. I thought Mizuno Miki could have made a lot more of her role. She seemed much the same as in Beautiful Life and Koi ga shitai x3. But overall, in hindsight, it wasn't that great.

Good family drama.. Tamura Makazaru was great as the very stubborn dad who never admits when he's made a mistake... But deep inside, he really cares about his kids and would go to great lengths to protect them... Can't believe how many times the kids tried to leave home when they have an argument with their father... but always end up coming back..haha..

a great great family dorama, better than otousan and mukodono (in the ranking of family doramas). Acting is just nice and with only a few caracters you won't get bored. I don't give it a ten because it's a very good dorama but quite easily forgetable anyway.

Another family drama. I love Ryoko Hirouse playin' the "bad kid" in the family. Nice change of pace for her showing her dramatic range.

Who wouldn't love this series? Its a nice lighthearted story about the depths of family and relationships. Plus it has almost all my favorite actors in it-Mizuno, Masakazu, and Hirosue. I love Masakazu and his little attitude, he's so funny. Ryoko is such a cutie and also Okada XD
