101 Kaime no Puropozu [101回目のプロポーズ]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
One of the classics. Kinda slow but builds towards the all-too predictable ending.

What starts as quite the cute drama has an opposite dark side and subplot.

Rom-com with moments, just left with a feeling that something was lacking.

Just could not get into it. Not sure if it was the format (seemed like 5 minutes of intro theme song and 10 minutes of story) or if they just looked like my relatives ...

Bara no nai Hanaya [薔薇のない花屋]

Katori Shingo in a role that is differs from his usual ... and wow ... Takeuchi Yuko's hair looks great! A "7" otherwise.
Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Too be honest ... I thought this was a little over-rated. Tokiwa Takako and Kimura Takuya ... big names and big ratings.

Cute, sad and inspirational at the same time.
Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou [ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖]

Story connection to actual books was novel (excuse the pun). Characters and story seemed really shallow.
Binbo Danshi [貧乏男子 (ボンビーメン)]

Bloody Monday 2 [ブラッディ・マンデイ-シーズン2-]
Rating: 5/10 (Bought & Watched)
Didn't get into it at all ... was just hoping to finish this. Not anywhere near as good as the first one. Over the top melo-drama

BOSS

Interesting cast. Witty in part. Something left missing though.
BOSS 2
Rating: 7/10 (Bought)
Not as good as the first one ... not as snappy or thought out.

Code Blue 2 [コード・ブルー 2]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
There are elements of the story that are better than the first Code Blue, like the character building but the story line seems to be much weaker.
Code Blue: Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei [コード・ブルー]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Thought it would be the usual 'story' based drama (as opposed to 'character') with oddly (young) actors. But ... was surprised how entertaining. A little on the sad side but nevertheless entertaining.

Boredom x 2, bad story x 2, bad script x 2.
Dr. Irabu Ichiro [Dr.伊良部一郎]

Gyne ~ Sanfujinka no Onna Tachi [ギネ ~ 産婦人科の女たち]

Starts off pretty slow. Was just ok. Would've gave 6.5 if possible. Shudaika by "Lecca" is interesting ... japanese reggae

A story surrounding the concept of a 'family registry' but really about family and sense of belonging. Again, the touch of darkness is just right.
Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]

Imouto yo [妹よ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Probably one of the better dramas of the generation portraying hope and love.
Innocent Love [イノセント・ラヴ]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Very slow story line to develop. Kinda 'old school style' drama that takes a while, but ends well. Not sure if it was romance or suspense. Eerie tones but overall well done.
Itazura na Kiss ~ Love in Tokyo [イタズラなKiss ~ Love in TOKYO]

Kaeru no Oujo-sama [カエルの王女さま]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Musical numbers were novel but not original. Interesting in watching actresses sing karaoke ... Feels like they were sometimes forced into the story. As for the story ... must admit there were a lot of touching moments. Very entertaining if you don't take it seriously.

Kurokochi [クロコーチ]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Wow. Originally saw the cast and had low expectations but they more than held their own. Police drama, with main plot of corruption and the question of, "Who is good and who is evil?" Tomoya Naruse is quite good in this, almost unrecognizable.

Laughs, laughs and more laughs. Serious tone near the end. Better than the first one.
LIAR GAME 2 [ライアーゲーム 2]

Not anywhere near as interesting as the first one. Story and situations seem forced.
LIFE [ライフ]

Was skeptical at first, but this is a really good serious drama. Dark but really good. Looks at the issue of bullying from so many different points of view ... students, teachers and parents.

Ryokiteki na Kanojo [猟奇的な彼女]
