2nd Hausu [‚Q‚Ž‚„ ƒnƒEƒX]

Another comic turned dorama. Salaryman meets teenage girl. 50% of the show is indeed the protagonists' fantasy. Be prepared for nudity.

Yet another redempt yourself light & slow drama. Little is going on for each episode and ›–ì”ü•ä is sure to learn a lesson about life at the end. The cast is rather weak. The pace is rather slow. The producers want to contrast ›–ì”ü•ä's pessimism with the male lead's optimism. Yet ›–ì”ü•ä can be best described as clueless rather than depressed, which is not so convincing. Incomplete.

A `cursed` man who wants to commit suicide in 11 days befriends a young punk who happens to run a night club. Guess we will see his reasons in upcoming episodes and his new friends will also change his mind along the way. Quite an interesting story. 6-5-4-3. Very SLOW, most likely you will have to watch at 3x speed, the only reason it deserves a 4 is the suspense element in the show, again it is simply too darn slow.

Story has potential in political conflicts, power games etc, yet the show is too darn slow, its like you can condense each episode into 12 minutes and you wont miss a thing. The cast is relatively strong (+1 point) but the only one stand out is the female protagonist. To summarize: Could be interesting, but too SLOW, been going downhill like from ep4.

A bit exagerrated and too hard to beleive at times yet pace is fast enough to keep you entertained. A solid adaptation from the book. The love story is bare indeed but the peformance of the leads as well as the wonderful sidecasts+otoko have made this an entertaining experience. The only complaint is that for the last 2 episodes + SP, too much otoko "cheering" scenes are reused! 8+1

This is a story about a primary school teacher whose class includes a `genius` kid who tends to be curious about everything and thinks outside of the box. It means trouble for the school and parents and those who conform to the system. Parents consider the kid as bad influence to their children who are in the same class, yet the kid is gaining popularity in the class because he is "fun", which cracks me laugh everytime. Given the somewhat unappealing theme, I am surprised that EP1 is pretty funny, hope the story does not go lame later on. Yet the finale really shows the female lead can't act, nevertheless, I give the show a 7.

After 2 to 3 episodes you will probably get tired of the same treatment - the wife get called by her mom-in-law reluctantly going back home to perform some traditional duties for the family, in the process, the husband messes things up and the wife would save the day. This is supposed to be a comedy but I don't find it funny at all. In the end, I wonder if the wife should keep her hubby as her little brother instead.

One case per episode. Each case is solved with the help of the wealthy family of Fukada Kyoko. The script contains obvious loopholes. Dailogue could be long which could induce sleep.

Cast is not particularly great but One of the better dorama this season. A story about the life of a `super` temp worker. Despite her superb abilities in the office she has quite some yet-to-be-revealed baggage from the past which forbids her from trusting others/corporate/enterprise. So far the episodes strike a good balance between office work, comedy, romance, temp worker and her own demon (which is the boring part).

I dont care about whether the show follows closely to the original. But the /character design/ for the team is quite bad, clothes with ugly colors, non-distintive features etc. The /art direction/ and that most of the scenes are film inside *studio*@makes this production look like a Shaw's production in the 70s. The action/fighting is subpar compared to Japan's own power rangers types let alone HK productions. Special effects are also seriously inferior. Character development is so far lacking and there aint much chemistry exists inbetween. The only thing that sticks out is the constant shouting of Goku. The villains are so unconvincingly weak that this looks like a 2nd-rate power ranger. Overall, this feels like a 80s/early 90s production, which doesn't quite cut it.

Like any suspense drama, the long subtitles of explanationatory dailogue would make you sleepy. There are loopholes considering that the police are involved, even the involvement is minimal.

The female lead's brand of laughing and the sudden shift of horror into comedy is the most un4gettable.

A high school girl committed suicide at school. The school would like the incident to be an accident. But the girl's mother, who abandoned her and is a lawyer, and the girl's class teacher believe that the girl's death was a result of bullying in school. Nice pace, nice acting and interesting story so far. Been draggy lately

Yakusha Damashii [–ðŽÒ°]
Rating: 5/10
The story is about the agent/assistant of an old, lonely but famous actor. And from here the story will be quite predictable; fortunately Matsu Takako's performance earn some points. PASS
Yama Onna Kabe Onna [ŽR‚¨‚ñ‚È•Ç‚¨‚ñ‚È]
Rating: 4/10
Supposed to be a comedy but not very funny, plot is quite bare for ep1 and the acting of the both the main characters is quite lackluster as usual. Dropped. Slow and Boring.

GTO. A bit better than Gokusan.
Yaoh [–鉤`YAOH`]
Rating: 6/10
Like other dorama of the same theme, this involves competition within the shop. But things are quite slow especially in the middle of the serie. The only thing stand out is that even in the 'host' business, the writer can come up with a "mission" that is, to make every woman in this world happy. As usual, it gets draggy in the middle and picks up in the last few eps. 5.5-wise.
Yuukan kurabu [—LŠÕ‹äŠy•”]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Production: 8, Acting: 5, Story:1. That pretty much sums it up, the unrealistic storyline kills it. Dropped.
