Synopsis
Aoi Misora is a third-year nurse at a prestigious hospital. After she is involved in trouble at the Emergency Center, she is transferred to a medical ward of an affiliated hospital. Unlike her previous workplace, the medical ward is a crucial place where patients who survived the emergency room must be looked after with extreme care. But it’s also a place for dishonest and unskilled doctors. Moreover, it is also a place for cozy ties between politicians and doctors, where the priority is not patient care but profit.

Still, Aoi puts every effort forward to take care of patients with her heart and soul. The harder she tries, the more she is alienated from the proud doctors. But with the support of another nurse, Kyoko Komine, and also Dr. Takagi, Aoi succeeds in changing the minds of those around her.

1. Surprisingly Good! [Rating: 8/10]
Nurse Aoi follows the same concept as Gokusen and GTO in that it's about a newcomer venturing into a hostile environment, where the newcomer has to face conflicts with his/her colleagues and also with those he/she is in charge of. The difference is that in Nurse Aoi, it's not a teacher, but a nurse.

Satomi-chan is brilliant in this drama, and definitely shows a level of maturity. This girl can definitely act and the drama benefits not only from her skills, but also by the other actors. The casting was very good.

The drama itself gets boring some times, but I still believe it's a good watch. It's not overly dramatic (although perhaps unrealistic at times), and only a scant few episodes are tear-jerkers. It's just a good view of the workplace, and anyone with a job or career will sympathize with the plot and Satomi-chan's character.

The comedic elements are delicious, the dramatic elements are realistic, and the quality of the drama overall is rich. Well done!

2. Nice Change in Pace for Ishihara, & a New Look [Rating: 6/10]
A better step up for Ishihara, I wouldn't say it was a great drama, but it did give me more respect for her. I don't know if I recommend it much, but it is a nice quaint, funny drama. Yanagiba was a good pick as the doctor and Nishimura was an excellent villain, though his hair made me laugh a bit.
This was Koyama's debut as an actor and at first he's acting seemed a little...slurred, but it got better as he got more speaking parts.
All in all I'm not sure if it's the perfect drama, but it's a drama filled with hope..and some tears.

Ns'Aoi is really worth watchin you know! though it might not be as sad as 1 litre of tears, Ns'Aoi has it's own really touching moments. A little ciche, still good
I have to say Ns'Aoi is lack of romance, it was focused on Ishihara Satomi so you'll probably consider the NEWS guy Koyama (Kei?) as a cameo...

If it wasn't for Yanagiba Toshiro, I would not have bothered to finish this show. Satomi Ishihara's chracter was a little to sweet for me to relate to so I could not see how she was a real character in the show. Yanagiba steals the show and I will look forward to seeing more of his work.

Some great moments at the beginning and at the end. The middle will put you to sleep, but once you wake up, this dorama will make you feel like it was worth watching. Yanagiba Toshiro wins a prize for overacting and another prize for good acting when not overacting.

Nurse Aoi is based off a somewhat popular manga in Japan. The main character is Misora Aoi played by Ishihara Satomi. She was most likely casted for this drama after her performance in "H2". In this drama she plays a nurse who just starts her training and work at a local hospital. However, it's a surprise to her to find out what really goes on at work - she has to deal with perverted doctors and patients. However, even through all of those troubles she's able to find the willpower to continue to help and heal those around her, not just the sick.

This drama although touching at some points, was extremely slow and downright boring in a few episodes and scenes. The perverted nature of doctors especially the one who worked right above her was a tad bit annoying to say the least. There were a few notable scenes that are worth seeing, but I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they are die-hard Ishihara Satomi fans.

A good cast with fair acting all around, but a bit episodic and a little too structured for my taste. The main character is your typical hero type whose infectious personality changes the lives of those around her. But in this case, Aoi-chan is too perfect. Her "flaw" or crime is a heroic act that anyone could sympathize with and you don't really get to see her grow, overcome her flaw, or have things revealed about her that drastically changes your initial impression - She's nice, has a great smile, and loves helping people.

Better than average, but nothing ground breaking.

only seen 4eps so far not bad..
thought admittedly the only major reason I wanted to see this drama is because I’m a nursing student and I wanted to get a view ( thought I know dramas aren’t real life) of what nursing is like in Japan. though a professional standpoint that drama wisent exactly realistic and made simple produces even a lower level nurse could do overly dramatic and complicated. ( sorry i notice these things ^^;; ) it still was interesting series with some heard, follows the typical career drama cliche's but, will still quite fun and entertaining to watch

Average dorama about a nurse entering a new hospital after breaking some rules. At first it seems it is going to be more work-focused but soon it focuses on the relationships between nurses, doctors and patients. I didn't like how fast everyone changed their minds, specially sub director at the end; ending was too gaudy so I didn't really liked it. Anyway it was entertaining watching all episodes, and medical cases weren't bad at all (they reminded me to some US and Spanish medical dramas), and production was quite good too. Not a must see but just give it a try.
5. Comments by kumaxell [Rating: 6/10]
In a restaurant scene, Aoi complains to Kitazawa about being suspended. Being extremely agitated, she taps her cup with a celery to make her statements. Kitazawa takes it away from her and munches on it. Aoi, then, picks up a carrot and starts tapping again. Kitazawa takes it from her and adds it to his plate. Left with nothing to tap, she starts munching on the chocolates. The waiter looks at her and says they are whiskey chocolates. Next thing we know, she is on Kitazawa's back.

The first starring role for Satomi Ishihara. Unfortunately it's a rather lackluster dorama with an uncompelling storyline and many plot conventions that have been overused in other doramas. Satomi's performance is adequate but doesn't capture the audience in a rapture. The supporting cast members do little to add to the dramatic tension and a few can be exceedingly annoying. The dorama ultimately falls short because of the screenwriting.
7. Comments by rikastar [Rating: 6/10]
Quite an uneventful dorama. The storyline was quite boring but there were some interesting characters. I loved Yanagiba Toshiro as the slightly perverted but good at heart doctor. They made him look so old here, miles apart from his look in Odoru Daisousasen. The other doctor who is the villian character was good too. The way he talks makes me want to smack him. Ishihara Satomi did ok for her first starring role.
8. Comments by AjiKan [Rating: 9/10]
Drama storyline definitely could've been better. But it still kept me REALLY hooked. I was watching them as they came from Japan, so i had to wait the full week to watch the next episode TT___TT. And Kei, is awesome in here. It was the first time i got to see him in a drama setting ^^v. Ishihara Satomi did a wonderful job as the worrysome nurse. I'd give it a 10 if the storyline was a little better. I recommend!
9. Comments by dekatrain [Rating: 6/10]
Typical average J-dorama...relies on unrealistic plot turns and satomi saying "never give up" over and over...no doubt its cliched in that sense. However, it is touching in some parts and it was good to see some character developments especially eeto sensei and takagi sensei...and satomi is as cute as ever. Not a MUST watch but worth a watch if your looking for some light unexilarating entertainment...
10. Comments by tkarmina28 [Rating: 7/10]
Though Satomi and Keiichiro were there, and there were some pretty emotional parts throughout the drama, the storyline was just boring at the most part and repetitive. It didn't really get too interesting...all they did was save people. Which is always good. But you know.. it kinda is dragging at some point. Though I was amused at Koyama's part the most - the musician/nurse boy.
11. Comments by yourasthma [Rating: 7/10]
i actually enjoyed this series although it was too 'nice and good' to be true. the cast was stronger than the story and the drama lacked the peaks and troughs that usually make a good drama. however, this means that this series is easy to watch. i'd recommend it. also, ishihara satomi revives my hopes for a future in jdorama.

Nice drama about a amazing Nurse. This drama sort of reminded me of that game Trama Center Under the knife for the NDS. In that game there was a incredible doctor that could cure people of these weird diseases. Well besides that, Nurse Aoi was a gifted Nurse and it made me wonder why they didn't just make her a doctor.
13. Comments by shitomaru [Rating: 9/10]
this is one of my fave. satomi-chan played well. i think the director had already made a research before making this drama. the medical terms used were perfect. this film gave me a new perspective on nurse as partner of a doctor. Number uno!!!!!

Satomi-chan is brilliant in this drama! It's a good, refreshing show that shows you the inner workings of a workplace, and explores the kindness of a good heart among larger political evils!

To tell you the truth, if Satomi wasn't in it, I don't think I would like this drama that much. I would still like it, but not to the extent I do when she is in it! It's still a sweet drama.

Maybe I've watched too many Jdoramas with the hospital theme, this one has got no surprises at all. Not as realistic as Kyumei Byoto nor as dramatic as Shiroi Kyoto. A pleasant watch still.
19. Comments by butterLiLy [Rating: 6/10]
Almost every episode have the same 'problem' and tend to get very predictable. Kinda repetitive and got me bored easily. The only reason I follow is because of its medical theme.

Slightly predictable, but a nice twist on the hospital drama with the "hospital from hell" theme. I've never read the manga, but I'll give Satomi 10/10.

[up to ep01] Very interesting first episode. Waiting to see how Aoi overcomes her hardships. Male idol's performance seemed forced(7/10)..

Only seen ep 1 and decided not to continue.
Why? Because I'm a partimer for this drama. (quoted from Koyama's character in the show.)

Satomi Ishihara=Cutie. Nurse Aoi=Pity.
Very predictable show, but entertaining. The "villian" in the show is cool though. (Winter 06)

well so far (ep1) its ok.. imma keep watching to see what happens. not a tear jerker .. nothing "exciting" .. hopefully it picks up.. so far ive watched this and "unfair". Unfair is a better drama.. gives you that "ooooo... i can't wait to watch the next ep" feeling. we'll see how it goes..
