Seija no koushin [聖者の行進]
Superlative acting by the lead actor in accurately portraying a mentally challenged youth.
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
Storyline; At least you knew from the first five minutes that you were going be really really sad! And then they did such a good job that you really were really really sad despite the warning. Good acting and neat to see Nakadai Tatsuya as something other than a psychotic killer [Sword of Doom] !!!!

101 Kaime no Puropozu [101回目のプロポーズ]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
So So. I found the story was OK although it could have been better. Its weird but I was probably unable to enjoy this series because the lead actress was so thin she looked anorexic. It was painful to look at her & I couldn't shake the desire to jump into the TV set to tell her to eat smething. If you have a relative or loved one suffering from an eating disorder avoid this series.

Personally I can't understand the low ratings. I liked the story and watched the entire series in one sitting. Its definitely in my top 10 (for now). I found the development of Ai chan from a bitter and quite pathetic girl into someone who could learn to love quite touching.

Densha Otoko [電車男]

Synopsis made this sound really good but it turned out to be somewhat of a disappointment. Maybe I was expecting too much? Still, it was worth watching. Personally I thought it tended to drag in the middle.

Fugoh Keiji 2 [富豪刑事2]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
From Malaysia. This was marginal, predictable, and somewhat boring. The heroine is suppossed to be a spoiled and somewhat ditzy rich girl who nonetheless has enough brains to solve the various crimes she has been assigned to?? I thought at 1st it would work solely because of the heronie's knowledge of things only a rich person would have known but only the 1st episode used that as a theme. Don't know how this lasted for two seasons!

This is the one that got me hooked. Saw parts of it on TV and bought the DVD for this and part 2 at the same time (thank god) 60+ J-dramas later and I'm still watching and still hooked. Not many have been better than this one in my opinion.

Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
I've watched close to 70 J-dramas thus far & this is only the 3rd one that I have ranked at 10. (sekai no chushin no ai o sukeba & Seija no Koshin are the other 2) Sekai was an exceptional story & a great piece of entertainment. Seija was a great story that made you aware that we are all human and should be allowed to lead a life of dignity & mutual respect. One liter reminds us to treasure life and family.
