The first time I picked it up, I couldn't get through the first episode. For Takki fans, it would be a good sort of 'pick up' to the drama... but for me, that's where it lost points. I thought there would have been more comedic in the beginning if they used Shiina Kippei (Tachibana) as their 'pick up'. But once I got through the first episode, it was just like a simple joy ride! Amazing drama & another one I'd definitely recommend. Nao's character (Ono) is actually very different from the manga/anime, but you'll grow to just want to pinch his cheeks. XDD;; The drama on the whole runs parallel to the manga/anime; it's different, but it picks up ideas here and there. And Hiroshi did a great job with Kage. ;) WATCH IT.

I really liked this one; this drama is really easy to digest and ones that won't fail you if you desperately need something to watch and pass time. The style of this drama is very much like Good Luck!! but on a very different focus... either way, give it a try. :)
Bijo ka Yajuu [美女か野獣]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Despite the average rating I gave it, I actually really liked this one. The plot is very episodic, but I tend to give in to dramas like that. Masha and Nanako pulled a very nice performance together. They could have pumped more into the romance portion, but I'm not complaining. I enjoyed the atmosphere that the drama gave off, and I totally recommend it! ;)

Gave up.

I don't recommend it if: 1) you're a fan of the manga, or/and 2) don't exactly care about Kame or Jin, or/and 3) watched the first Gokusen drama.

Guilty Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna [ギルティ 悪魔と契約した女]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
This drama is outright amazing. It's one of the best ones I've seen since... last year. I like the mix between the romance and the crime/mystery. The romance wasn't too overpowering and acted as a nice support to the whole story. The only thing I wasn't too happy about was the ending. It was a bit too mediocre, and I felt there were better ways of putting it to an end. Overall, it was good. A+ cast with Tamaki & Kanno and the story was not great, but enjoyable.
Hachimitsu to Kuroba [ハチミツとクローバー]

DROPPED. If you're going to watch this, I suggest watching the anime. Trust me and just save yourself the "OMFG, THIS IS HORRIBLE. WHAT A WASTE OF MY TIME [insert curses here]". And I do actually think Aoi Yuu (movie version) is more suitable as Hagu, even though she doesn't quite hit the spot 100%.

Another new drama that I didn't regret at all picking up in 2007. I wasn't really interested in the casts, but a friend of mine insisted that it's a must-watch and shoved it in my face. It's very motivating and I ended up really liking all the characters.

Hero
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I get absolutely, crazy bias when I start recommending HERO as a must-watch for others. Not only is Kimura/Matsu my absolute favourite pairing, but this is also my very first (technically, anyway) Kimura jdrama. So if anyone happens to be reading this and trying to figure out whether or not to watch HERO... here it is. :P I loved it, as if you haven't figured it out already. I wouldn't say this was Kimura's best, but it's somewhere up there. Other than Kimura himself, I think the other cast members did a lot of justice to this drama. If they weren't there, HERO wouldn't exist as a comedy and it would be... pretty dull. Because I mean, the romance between Kimura/Matsu are super minimal (not to say there wasn't any tension between them) and the crime cases aren't exactly a wow factor. But somehow it worked for me, and do give this a try :)

Watched it during my MJ fandom days, and I thought it was pretty godly. But other than the idea itself, there's really nothing too special about this romance drama. It's really cute and I thought Koyuki & MJ did well, but the ending bugged me a lot. They just rushed to get all the possible pairings together... the end. And that's that. :/

This drama is amazingly done. Not so much near the end where it seemed like they're pulling things out of thin air, but the plot is amazing! Good performances from both Matsushima & Takenouchi... and despite what it seems, I have to say this is probably Matsushima's best role yet. Highly recommended.

If I made a list and ranked all the Kimura Takuya dramas I've watched in my life, this would probably end one being at the bottom somewhere. Casts are amazing (beyond that, even), but the story does not live up to modern standards. If you plan to watch it and want to enjoy it, let's just say... don't expect much. :)
Kyumei byoto 24 ji [救命病棟24時]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the best medical dramas, if not the best, I've seen so far. Even though I don't know how the ER really works, I can sense that it's very realistic in a way that the doctors and nurses aren't bombarded with work 24/7. I also enjoyed Shindo (Eguchi Yosuke)'s little side story; a romantic side of him, which was nice. :) I liked the casts a lot too; out of all three series, I think Shindo interaction with this group is most enjoyable.

Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
It's very hard to accept this sequel since they don't spare anyone but Sakurai (Sudo Risa) from the 1st series. But I grew to like it in the end. The format of this so-called sequel is similar the 1st series, but the content is very different and if you give it a chance up to the very end, I'm sure you'll grow to like it too. This group is not as likable as the group from the 1st series for me, but this group has a more dramatic effect to the drama. And as a group, you can sense teamwork. Give it a chance!

Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I was really surprised to see that they've chosen a more solid focus on this part of the trilogy. Again, they spare no one but Kojima (Matsushima Nanako) from the last 2 dramas, but as a veteran from the 1st of the trilogy, I was really looking forward to see Kojima and Shindo team up again. What I really like about this trilogy is that you don't necessarily need to watch the previous parts to understand what's going on in the drama. And I also really liked how they decided to make a segment/side story for Kojima and her romantic side (like Shindo's side story in the 1st drama). I didn't expect that. ;D But! The one thing that bugged me about this drama was the lack of focus on this group of doctors & nurses. I think the producers were trying to drift away from their original format, and simply focused too much time on the earthquake. Nonetheless, still very touching and dramatic in its own way (even if it's different from its counterparts). :D And lastly, I really think they could of done more with the ending... though not complaining now since there's a 4th season added!!

You just don't get the same feeling when you watch it 10 years later, I guess. :/ I remember when I was a child watching it, I really liked it, but rewatching it didn't quite give me the same feeling. I guess it's because the drama lived well in its own period and your expectations of a good drama change over time. Nonetheless, this drama deserves this rating. It'll remain a romance classic, not to mention a memory of our Golden Combi - Kimura Takuya & Matsu Takako.
Love Revolution [ラブレボリューション]

Probably one of my favourite josei romance stories. Unfortunately though, the story tried too hard to complicate itself in the end and that's where it lost points for me. This drama starts off great, and you probably won't have an issue falling in love with the couple... I just wish the 2nd half of the drama had been different. :(

I know the title sounds lame, and I didn't quite give it a very good rating... but out of all the dramas I've watched so far in my life, this one is nowhere near the worst I've seen. Shinohara & Sakaguchi actually makes an interesting pairing if you gave them a chance. She's cute, and he's hot. What can I say? :P If you need something that's sort of funny and heartwarming, I do recommend this one.

I picked up this one because I wanted to see the Tsuyoshi-Ryoko pair again... but I really didn't like the erupt ending, and that's where it lost points. Besides, I think this is 'just another romance drama'... so if you're not a huge fan of the cast, it would be rather difficult to get through.

DROPPED. I started this drama when I was a teen, thinking I would get a good laugh out of this. I anticipated the stupidity. But ultimately, I gave up. I don't know what the exact motivation is for people who actually finished it, but for me.. as much as I liked the cast, I just couldn't understand the point of this drama. Though I think it would be a good one if you plan to just stare at [insert name here] the whole time... Actually, just looking around now, I'm highly convinced that all the "good" comments and high ratings around me here are given by those who are loyal fans of one of the guys (maybe more). If you're going for plot, I wouldn't step here. This one was just a HUGE miss for me. HOWEVER. I did like the movie version of this. It was a lot shorter anyway, so it was more bearable. Take a look at that instead if you find yourself liking the cast but can't stand episodes of BS.

[SPOILER ALERT..?] The best jdrama I've watched in awhile (though I haven't been watching anything lately..)! I'm impressed with how this turned out. Especially because I would only be lured into this for the casts, but the scripting and plot turned out really nicely too! Before I got to the end, I thought they were just going to randomly pinpoint the criminal out of the blue like they mostly do with badly scripted mysteries, and I'm glad this one didn't turn out that way. There's also a lot of little interesting morals & inserts. Highly, highly recommend! Watch right up until the end! And if you liked Triangle, I also recommend Koori no Sekai & A Million Stars Fall from the Sky. :)

Major jokes, this drama! Loved it a lot!! The chemistry between Nakama Yukie and Abe Hiroshi really brought out the drama; I mean, that's probably the only reason I watched the whole Trick series.

Anyhow, it's still one of my favourite comedies & drama. :)

Not only that, but I've became a big shipper of Aibu Saki & Nagase Tomoya. :P It's quite enjoyable, but rather bittersweet. It's hard to hate this drama.

DROPPED. Probably not the best excuse out there, but Tabe Mikako really annoyed the hell out of me.

Personally, I really liked it in the end. I have to admit the beginning was really slow and boring. Everything was just beyond fake to the point where it kind of got annoying. And things like this drama I'd usually cast aside and label it horrible. But trust me, it picks up after. It's nothing like I've seen before... like Nanako's character, for example. She is one of the fakest & shallowest character you'll probably ever meet... those that you call bitches. This drama might seem a little exaggerated, but it's a good wake up call to unrealistic girls who are still out there. I ended up liking Nanako's character, despite her personality... it's a pretty dimensional character, though you'll probably never believe someone like that is out there. And the other casts itself were A++. Anyway, it's definitely not the best thing I've ever watched, but it's not a waste of your time either. :)

Not exactly sure what to say about this one... But I guess I should start off by saying that this drama is very friendship & slice-of-life oriented. I don't regret watching it, but let's just say I probably wouldn't have picked it up if I wasn't familiar with the casts.
