69 sixty nine
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Nice... although its easily forgettable. Sixty Nine is those kind of movies to watch when u got nothing else to do and you're in the mood to watch a silly movie that just makes u laugh! The casting did a pretty good job (couldnt stop laughing just watching most of the characters). Really funny one... highly recommended for anyone who's looking for same laughs.
Ace wo Nerae! [エースをねらえ!]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
OMG! This dorama is really boring... Altough i LOVE tennis... and even play it... This dorama couldn't make me feel a lil' bit excited. The characters are annoying!!! The casting really sux (speacially BECKY, even her appearences on TV makes me feel sick!!!) Damn... sry Ueto Aya... but this one was bounded to fail!!! The r just a couple of thins that r good 'bou this dorama... Ueto Aya and her song...!!
Ai no Uta [あいのうた]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Its somewhat strange.... it doenst feel like a japanese dorama. The plot is very good and original... the "flashbacks" r really sad.... altough i didnt like this dorama thaaaaat much i must say that this one is a good one, specially if one is tired of those "regular" doramas..... Wich is not my case.! Its really worth watching. It shows that japanese doramas r not limited by those "comedy and tragedy" stories....
Akihabara@DEEP [アキハバラ@DEEP]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
It is kind of an IWGP meets Densha Otoko.... For those who liked Densha, Akihabara@DEEP is waaaaay better than that! Altough i must say that some actors really sux... specially Kosaka Yuko... i mean... shes beatiful and can put some really amazing fighting scenes... but her acting skills r far from being the best.... And those "u must watch the DVD" parts r really annoying! I mean... c'mon.. how desperate one can be to sell those DVDs... Nways.. its a good dorama afterall... really worth a try... An Akihabara's version of IWGP... really funny!
Ando Natsu [あんどーなつ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
An-Donuts!!!! A nice dorama... made me laugh and cry at many parts of the show. The casting is OK... the characters are really adorable. The main thing this dorama lacks (and the main reason i didnt rate this dorama a 10) is the fact that Ando Natsu doesnt really have a main plot. I mean.. OK... An-Donuts wanna be a top chef and all that stuff but at most of episodes it's all about sub-plots and the main character helping other ppl. Nways... a good dorama afterall.
Anna-san no Omame [アンナさんのおまめ]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
OMFG.... Becky's character is the most annoying character EVER! I mean. Gotta give some credits to the dorama for that. The other actors did a good/funny job as well (didnt know a thing bout Sanzu Sayuri.... well... shes pretty cute. hope to see more of her in the future); Well... bout the dorama itself.... having a annoying char as the protagonist is pretty unique but it didnt work out for me. The dorama is really "noisy" and there are waaaay to many exaggerating scenes (sometimes the doramas seems more like an anime than a dorama) and i dislike it. But in the end i guess i laugh pretty hard from time to time while watching this dorama... if one is looking for same laughs i recommend this one... otherwise stay away from this!
Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I would give this dorama a 9.99999... rating. Ashita no, Kita Yoshio is really a nice dorama. Dont know y so many ppl tough it was a slow paced dorama... (and i dont know y so many ppl thinks that slow paced=bad dorama... i mean.. there r plenty of good slow paced doramas, haikei chichiue~sama for example) Nways... i really like the casting for this dorama (Yoshitaka Yuriko and Matsuda Ryuhei r both really good actors... hope to see more from them in the future...) The plot is amazing... really caught my attention.... The only reason i didnt gave this show a 10 is the LAST episode. The ending REALLY sux! I felt that the dorama was kind of incompleted. But the dorama is really good! Konihata~san (again) do a superb job (well... after appearing in so many movies and TV doramas its only natural that he's THAT good) OMG!! The negative thing acting was amazing!!!!
At Home Dad [アットホーム・ダッド]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Overall a "OK" dorama.... but imo the "main" plot is quite boring.. "At Home Dad" just show the every day life of a father doing the house errands.... Because of that many episodes doesnt have any relation with each other whatsoever..... Maybe they could have worked a lil bit more on the plot. As for the casting.... NaH... Abe Hiroshi is quite annoying as a father. I mean.... not that Abe~san is a bad actor... but hes just not fit for this character. Nways.... there r many better "family doramas" than "At Home Dad" (beinh HOTMAN the number 1!!!!)
Atashinchi no Danshi [アタシんちの男子]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
A good dorama (a little silly most of the times... but still a good dorama). The chars r pretty funny and the plot is ok (a lil over the bar tough). I must say that i didnt like the last few episodes.. most because all that treasure hunter thing that imo was plain stupidity. For those who like to watch those silly comedy doramas this one is a must see (although its far from being the best one). One last note... although the main idea of this show is kind of creative most of the scenes in this dorama r extremely cliche.... Well iIMO Atashinchi no Danshi is worth watching.
Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
The girls are a little old... and the ending really sucks (it woulb be nice if the made another season for this DORAMA)... Altough i dindt expect much from this one... It really suprised me... ITS quite enjoyable.... Altough its faaaaaar from beign the best... u could say its OK... (i tough this dorama would be something like Ace wo Nerae!.... in other words... HORRIBLE!)
Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Well... firstly i didnt think i was goin' to enjoy "another" flight company dorama (I hated "Good Luck!!!") But this one is really good! Nice characters... the plot is also superb...!! Well.. but something is missing in it... i dunno what.... Nways... afterall i found "Attention Please" a nice dorama... Its worth a try!
Bambino! [バンビーノ!]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Bambino! is really cool in the beginning but gets really bad at the last episodes.... almost painful to watch! The casting is OK... some actors plays better than the others... But the 2 actors that really caught my attention were Matsujun and Ryuta Sato... They were outstanding is this dorama... BtW.. im not sure... but isnt Ikeuchi Hiroyuki in the episode 7???? OMG... i was shocked... hes soooo different!!! But hes still an amazing actor!!!! Nways... i will give this dorama a 6 out of 10... Afterall i really enjoyed those first episodes.... (oh.. i forgot to mention... this dorama has one of the most predictable endings ever!!!)
Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]

There r better doramas.... It is just OK imo....
Bloody Monday [ブラッディ・マンデイ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
honestly i wasnt expect much from this dorama... (dont really like those terrorist+lethal virus stuff and watching Yasha in the past really made me think that japanese just cant make it work it out). Well... guess i was wrong! I still dont like those terrorist and chemical weapon stuff... but the dorama was quite enjoyable. The plot is superb.. i couldn't stop watching (well.. tha last episode was a lil bit boring comparing to the other ones). The casting is so-so.. some really good actors here but some r horrible (specially most of the terrorist group). The theme song is pretty nice but i dont think it fits the dorama very well... And lastly... The falcon CG scenes r way to lame. Still... a good dorama... if u r into those "prevent terrorists attack" stuff u will probably like it.. even i who dont like those kind of stuff kind enjoyed the dorama while it.
Brother Beat [ブラザー☆ビート]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Really nice dorama.... Honestly i wasnt expecting much from Brother Beat... but as the episodes goes on u really start to support the three brother and their mother.... HOTMAN still is IMO the best "family" dorama... But Brother Beat gets real close to it... And the history is really creative... Most doramas focus on the father... and brother beat is really different in that aspect... Something more or less like Summer Snow... The casting is also superb... I really felt in love with the characters of this dorama... The music is OK... Brother Beat is a really well made dorama... I recommend it!!!
Buzzer Beat ~ Gakeppuchi no Hero [ブザー・ビート]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Take Kimutaku's "Pride" but with a worst casting... a much worst plot... and change hockey to basketball and u pretty much got what to expect from Buzzer Beat. Even the match's scenes from Pride is waaaaay better than from this dorama. Afterall Buzzer Beat is not a bad dorama... but its easily forgettable. Highly overrated!
Byakuyakou [白夜行]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
What a depressing yet enjoyable dorama... Since i read the first reviews on this site.. i was expecting something similar to Sekai no chuushin... but OMFG!! Did those guys even watched both doramas... apart from the casting they have nothing in common!!!! BtW... i never tough that Atsuro Watabe was such a splendid actor!!! (From the silly brother in Beautiful Life to this Evil character in Byakuyakou...!!! He's amazing!!!) Well... i dont enjoy depressing doramas that much... (thats y i gave it only a 8 out of 10...) but i must say that this one is really good!!! For those who like this kind of dorama... i really recommend it!!! =^^=
Cat Street [キャットストリート]
Rating: 2/10 (Watched)
What an annoying dorama... such a good story, nice casting, beautifuls songs and it all goes down cuz the way they decided to put all that in the dorama. It's the most slow paced dorama ever (and its only six episodes)! The same flashback goes on and on... Damn... was it really necessary. Maybe they could put something else in it... dunno... maybe some everyday life of the friend (or something like that... so they could change the friendiship betwen the guys in the school more realistic). I got to know that this story is based on a manga.. well im not really into anime/manga stuff... but i guess i would be probably be right when saying that the manga version is way better than this (so... try that).
Chakushin Ari [着信あり]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Well... The BGM is creepy!!! (and also some parts of the dorama...) Butthey could have used some better special effects!!! (C'mon.. the dorama is pretty new!!!) Nway.. IMO the dorama is good... but the ending really sux...
Code Blue 2 [コード・ブルー 2]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Much better than the first one! Is this new season the main chars. interact betwen them. The did some char. development as well... and the episodes plot r more interesting. Still.. not the best medical dorama.... but at least its better than epic fail that the first season was.
Code Blue: Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei [コード・ブルー]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
Boring.. Had to push myself to watch all the episodes.... Code Blue has some good actors in it (but the dont interact at all). The plot.. well... what plot? Doctors taking care of patients and thats pretty much of it... NaH... imo even Kira Kira was WAAAAAAY better than this one. I mean.. even the main characters doesnt have a background. My suggestion? Go watch something else....
Dandori [ダンドリ]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
I didnt like the main story.. most of the time i was more interested in the side-stories.. The casting... damn.. it sucks!! Really.... in this dorama the only actor that i would give Thumbs up would be Masaki (who was really funny in this dorama) and Keiko Toda (damn!! I miss the Shomuni!!!!!! Shes so talentous!!!) The girls.... well... imo they r not even THAT cute.. i mean... if u r looking for a dorama with cute girls just go watch Gyarusa... And if u r looking for a good "sport"'s related dorama... go watch H2, Waterboys or even Attack No.1... Dandori is just BAD!!!!
Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu [誰よりもままを愛す]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Nice family dorama... nothing memorable tough. The casting is quite good (Sadayo Abe once again did a marvelous job playing a gay character) The plot is just what u expect from a family dorama.... a hardship appears the family struggle and then become happy and united once again. So if u dont really like family dorama this one probably wont do any good for you. The ending was ok... they could've come with something better i think (specially the neighbour sub plot...). Nways... still a good dorama.
Densha Otoko [電車男]
Rating: 1/10 (Watched)
One of the worst doramas i ever watched!!!!! If not the worst... The whole dorama is just a waste of time..... Maybe if u like anime and stuff u may like this dorama... otherwise.... its just terrible!!!! Stupid plot... Strange (and not really funny) characters... Overall its just a big waste of time. But again, maybe those who r into that anime and otaku stuff (and them only) will like this dorama.... If u r not one of them u will probably hate this thing as much as i did.... They could've done a short dorama with this (those thing with less than 10 minutes lenght)... its simple... Otaku (geek) meet girt in the train, Otaku post in the forum.. Otaku cry..... Otaku gets a present for her... Otaku post in the forum.. otaku cry.... Otaku call her.. otaku post in the forum... Otaku cry... and this goes on until the last episode (when he finally kiss her!!!) Damn... u must be an Otaku to like something like that!
Dr. Koto Shinryojo [Dr.コトー診療所]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
What an amazing dorama.... Really... first of all i hate medical shows.... doesnt matter if its like those sitcoms like E.R., Scrubs, House. Those "reality" shows 'bout plastic surgery... Nways I REALLY HATE MEDICAL SHOWS!!! But Dr Koto - Shinryousho is wonderful... Its so touching!!! Heart warming!!! The plot and the casting r perfect... BtW.. i've seen that some ppl didnt like the main char. IMO he was the best... the writter really come with something different when they created the Koto's Char.... Nways... from making someone who trully hates medical shows to love a medical dorama.... Dr Koto has to get a perfect score.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
It starst really slow... (it takes 2 episodes for one to understand how this dorama is going to be...) and by the end it gets really boring.. (they really show the students taking the exams...) But the plot is very original... i must say that it has nothing to do with Gokusen or GTO except the fact it's also 'bout high school life... Well... imo its a good dorama... I really like the ending... Very different... i mean... i dont know y all high-school life doramas have to end just like Gokusen and GTO!!!
Fire Boys [ファイアーボーイズ 〜め組の大吾〜]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Nice dorama... Fun to watch, pretty good plot and an amazing cast. One annoying point on Fire Boys is the attempt to make a love triange... it didnt worked out neither added nthing to the show. Manami char could be easily removed from the dorama (maybe it would even improve the quality of the show...). Endind is predictable but still fun! Worth a try....
First Kiss [ファースト・キス]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
Damn... First Kiss is all about cliches!!!! The whole dorama is full of them.... Its the most predictable dorama i've ever watched!!! I mean, one can predict the whole dorama just by watching the first episode... Well... at least for me it was really boring. The casting is good... really good... But the rest is just boring!! Maybe its worth watching if one have watched many doramas... otherwise stay away from this one... =^^=
Fugoh Keiji [富豪刑事]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
The first dorama staring Fukakyon i've watched.... and its pretty dull. I knew that Fukakyon's char was rich... but i tough that they would use that fact for comedy relief purposes only..... Damn... all the cases were solved by the char spending tons of money. Fugoh Keiji ignores characters development (so dont expect anything from it on that aspect) and all char r pretty cliche (the only one i tough was enjoyable was the grandpa). The ending is horrible!!! Fugoh Keiji is just so-so....
Futatsu no Spica [ふたつのスピカ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
it's so-so... But much better from most of NHK doramas tough. As expected from a NHK dorama (well... not the Taigas ones) they dont work much on the character development due the short amount of episodes... for the same reasons (NHK again.. not talking bout the Taiga ones) the casting isnt something memorable (but on this one they put quite a nice show). Really enjoyed the ending (when the main char surpass all her friends) i tough they did a nice job on that... (altough, in the ending.. they could spare me from that horrible speech). Nways... i had always tough that all NHK doramas were crap... an Futatsu no Spica made me realize its not. (Still.. most of them are!)
Gachi Baka ! [ガチバカ !]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Overall its not a BAD dorama... tough its far from beign a good one... there r good aspects in Gachibaka! But most of times it fails to entertainm the viewer. =^^= For those who liked Gokusen, GTO.. Gachibaka its just the same... no innovations whatsoever. But the main plot and casting were better in Gokusen&GTO... so even if u LOVED those 2... u still have high chances of disliking Gachibaka! BtW.. the ending is worst than GTO's.... I really hated the ending... its just... Stupid...
Gal Cir [ギャルサ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
What a lovely dorama! And wat else can we ask??? Beautiful actress such as Yaguchi Mari (former Morning Musume member), Toda Erika (main role... u~huuu!!!!), Aragaki Yui (in a much cooler role than the one she did in Dragonzakura), Suzuki Emi..... And not to mention that this one have one of the most funny casting ever!!! Namase Katsuhisa (the legendary head-teacher from Gokusen), Furuta Shinta (any relation with Furuta Arata???), Sato Ryuta (IMO he's the japanese version for Jin Carrey.. LoL). And Fujiki Naohito plays his role really WELL!! The foreign accent he does is marvelous!!! He's really funny in this dorama... Gyarusa is really silly... no doubts 'bout that... But its the funniest dorama i've ever watched!!! I gave a 9 out of 10 only because of that UNREALISTIC part in the ending... But i must say i quite enjoyed the ending of this dorama... Really worh a try if u r looking for some laughs....
Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
OMG... I hope that rowing isnt as boring as this dorama... In the last episodes i was really bored! (skipping some scenes... playing Solitarie while watching it.... and so on) And all those "ya... ya.. ya..." really got on my nerves!!! I dont know wich region of Japan ppl speaks like that... but i hope that i will never end up there... ("GanbatteYA..") I dont quite understand how so many ppl enjoyd this dorama... Nishikido and Taguchi's chars were so alike.. i mean... they could use one "cheerfull" char.. i know its kind of "cliche" but at leat it would make "Ganbatte Ikimasshoi" more of a watchable dorama... The girls were ok... no bad acting... but the again nothing special neither.... But the worst point of this dorama is the plot... or the lack of a plot... Go watch Waterboys... its much better than this one!!!
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
PERFECT!! So damm Funny!!! Just love it..... Nakama Yukie's char is so adorable... nice acting from the cast. Couldnt find any reasons for someone not to like it (well... at least if u r not one of those GTO fanactics that r really annoying). Nice ending (altough it was pretty predictable). Really worth it!
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Just like the first one.. with different students.... For those who liked the first one.... this one is good enough (well... i must say that imo the first one is waaaaay better than Gokusen 2) Dunno y but while i was watching i couldn't help thinking that the first one had a better cast... better stories.... If one miss Gokusen and Yankumi one will problably fell happy while watching Gokusen 2... still... one will problably miss the other actors.... (specially Itoh and Nakazawa...)
Gokusen 3 [ごくせん 3]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Well... lets pretend that i didnt watch Gokusen 1&2, if i do so i probably would found that Gokusen 3 is a nice dorama... (maybe not as good as "Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru"). I also would (at least) say that the casting was OK (mostly because of Nakama....) But that is just not the case... cause i did watch Gokusen 1&2... and with that in mind i must say.... Gokusen 3 its just like them with a worst casting.... I would say this one is somewhat just as good as gokusen 2... a good way to remember the first one.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
The wors Kimutaku's dorama i've watched so far (altough i gotta say that ive never been much of Kimutaku's fan). Its just like the others kimutaku's doramas (Long Vacation... Love Generation... Pride...) a cheap romance history with one twist in the plot by each episode. And all those "i wanna be a pilot" is really annoying...
GTO [麻辣教師]
Rating: 6/10
Not a bad dorama (considering that GTO is kind of old) but far from being the best school dorama ever. The casting is so-so... altough i really like most of Sorimachi's works GTO definitely is not one of his bests. Lots of not known actors in this one that made their careers after this show... so i give GTO some credits for that. The theme song is the worst music ever. There r many better school doramas to watch.... but GTO is worth a try.
H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I wasnt expecting much from this dorama... i mean... i dont like baseball... and i tough it would be really strange to have the actor from Sekai Chuusin playing a sport Dorama... But in the end;... i really enjoyed this one... is not the best... but its really good... if i think about sports dorama... this one is the best ive seen...
Hachimitsu to Kuroba [ハチミツとクローバー]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
11 episodes... 1 love triangle and 1 love square... and the ending doesnt fell like an END at all. That's all i can say 'bout honey and clover! So far Honey and Clover gotta be one of the most boring doramas i've ever seen... And wtf was that ending? Gotta be THE WORST ending ever... This dorama would be much better if they showed only Ikuta's character journey (the reason i rate this dorama a 3...) NaH... im not really into all those love triangle stuff... and this dorama is soooo slow paced that i dont recommend it at all....
Haikei, Chichiue-sama [拝啓、父上様]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Haikei, Chichiue-sama is a good dorama... But probably most young ppl wont like it.... since they r used to those fast passed stories.. wich Haikei is not!!! This dorama has a beatiful story... And it gets even better after some episodes.... The casting is also superb!!! U could even forget that Haikei is just a dorama... and start believing that those ppl really exists in the real world! And thats because all the actors play their roles with amazing acting skills.!!! Haikei is really an awesome dorama... And its good 2 watch those kind of slow progress story's dorama once in a while... Thumbs up!!!
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Hilarious!!! But sometimes it gets really predictable.... IMO Meteo Garden is much better than this... 'bout the casting.. i think it was just OK... the main actors r really good while the supporting roles r really questionable.... (some actors doesnt fit their chars. at least imo) Its a good dorama but it not one of the best...
Hana Yori Dango 2 [花より男子]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Pretty good (just like the first season...) I didn't like the last episode tough.... That "thing" that happen with Tsukasa over the 2 last episodes was really unecessary (at least imo...) it didn add nthing to the plot... and it was kind of silly and unrealistic....!!! Well... in the end... Hana Yori Dango is a quite enjoyable dorama.. If u like the first season u ought to watch this one (altough the first one was better than this one)!!!
Hanayome to Papa [花嫁とパパ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
What a lovely dorama... Hanayome to Papa is really GOOD!!! The casting is superb... I love all the actor... but one of them really caught my attention... Wakui Emi.... OMG shes a excelent actress!!! Tokito Saburo is really good in this doramas as well... 'bout the couple... well... they were OK... I mean.. They put a good show but it was nothing thaaaat special! Most young actors could play their chars. Btw.. imo Satomi~chan and Junno doesnt have a good chemistry betwen them...... Nways... this dorama is really good... and some parts r really funny!!! I really enjoyed Hanayome....
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e [花ざかりの君たちへ]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Good actors.. good soundtrack... nice scenarios... but a lame plot. Eventough it has its original concepts the plot is pretty obvious... they could have pulled something much better from that idea... Anways... its enjoable but (easily) forgettable.... But i gotta admitt that some parts of this show r really funny. Hana Kimi is worth watching if u r looking for some cheap laughs and nothing much deep.

Himitsu no Hanazono [ヒミツの花園]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
I didnt know what to expect from this dorama... didnt know what Himitsu no Hanazono was about... the plot... the genre... And i gotta say that when i started watching it i was expecting a major crap. Well... its not... it's plain.. a simple yet fun plot and made me laugh at some parts. The casting (as the whole dorama) is OK... Even the twists in the plot r really simple (one of them almost too predictable) but in the end Himitsu no Hanazono is a pretty nice dorama to watch (just dont expect much from it).
Hotaru no Hikari [ホタルノヒカリ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Hummm.. an OK dorama imo! Dunno y i didnt like that much.... guess those humor/romance doesnt work with me.... But thats just me... well.... but i've gotta say... At least Hotaru no Hikari is funnier (and better) than that creepy Densha Otoko... one last note> IMO Fuijiki Naohito doesnt quite fit those "serious" characters;;;;
hoteriaa [ホテリアー]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
First of all... Do they really had to show Yon~sama so many times?? I know he got famous in Japan after Winter Sonata... but C'mon... there's a limit of how many times u can show the EXACTLY same scene in one dorama.... Nways... Hotelier (Hoteriaa) is an OK dorama... one of those that u can easily forget after watching it.... Eventough the casting is good... it fails on adding something spetacular to the dorama.... And that LOVE-"PENTAGON" is relly annoying... it almost made the dorama look like a Mexican soap opera...
Hotman [ホットマン]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
One of the best doramas ive watched.... The most heartwarming dorama ever... Yamauchi Nana plays her char. in an adorable way... u just can help falling in love with her.... BtW... The casting is superb! It seems like every actor really fits perfectly their respective chars. Im not much of a fan of these "family's doramas"... but this one really touched my heart... Thumbs up!!!!
Hotman 2 [ホットマン2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
As most of ppl who have watched HOTMAN2 i was like "WtF?" when i first saw Shima... Actually i wouldn't mind if they had only changed the actress (Altough imo Konishi Manami is much better of an actress than Itoh Misaki) however they completely changed Shima's character as well... Ryonosuke, Haiji and Hinata have the same personality they had on the first show... But Shima is less shy... less caring... Well.. i didnt like that at all... Afterall i must say that i liked the first one better... But i gotta say that i think that HOTMAN2 is funnier than the previous one. HOTMAN2 is a good dorama... but the "original" one is waaaay better than this!!!

Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Very good dorama indeed.. but i must agree that u should watch this first, then watch the movie.... The dorama gives more details but if u watch the movie first probably u will find that the dorama is not that good.... BtW... i never tought that Narimiya would do such a marvelous job playing a "father"... but he DID!!! Thumbs up!!!!
Iryu [医龍 Team Medical Dragon]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
The best medical dorama i've ever watched.. in fact its the best medical series that i've ever watched! I can say that because im really not a big fan of all those medical stuff... still Iryu really shocked me... it's that good! The casting is superb... Flawless... The plot (something that most medical show lack of) is reaaaallllyyy nice. i couldnt stop watching the dorama. I still dont give a damn about all those medical stuff.... but Iryu really is one of the best doramas i've watched..
Iryu 2 [医龍 2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Its still good.... but far from being as good as the first one. The new characters r not interesting as the original team. This time the plot in not that amazing (at least not if compared with the plot from the first one). Even the doctor recruitment is better in the first one. Nevertheless its still good (dont get me wrong) it just doesnt stand on the same leve as the original series but i still recommend this... its really worth it!
Kaidan Hyaku Shosetsu [怪談百物語]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
One probably wont be scared while watching Kaidan Hyaku Shosetsu... But it has some pretty good sad stories and others that r really heartwarming.... I really enjoyed the last story (the one 'bout the "yuki no hana") and the ending was really nice... BtW.. for those who r watching only the episode 'cause of Kobozuka... imo the "werewolf" story was the worst one... IMO the best story definetly is "Ubasuteyama"... Its really sad!!!
Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット]
Rating: 2/10 (Watched)
A nice casting... but the plot is a little bit boring (more like stupid imo).... C'mon... a human pet?!?! WtF? i know some doramas (like this one) dont intend to be realistic but thats just plain stupid! i gave a 2 out of 10 only cause of the casting (but i must say that both lead actors didnt have any chemisty at all). The ending is the best part IMO (since i wouldnt be watching any more of this crap)...
Kirakira Kenshui [きらきら研修医]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Dont know y so many ppl hated this dorama... I mean... i laughed a lot while wactching it.. (specially when the instructor were played by Papaya~san and Namase Katsuhisa...) The actors were really funny... even Went Eiji from WaT surprised me and did a good job (his expressions were hilarious!!!) Altough i must say that Koike Teppei is waaaay better of an actor than him... Konishi plays her character really well... (finally!! Shes the main actress of some dorama... just for that i give this dorama one more point...) Well... i really enjoyed this dorama... I mean.. its easly forgetable... but yet enjoyable!
Kisarazu Cat's Eye [木更津キャッツアイ]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Really funny... but the plot is somewhat confusing. Didnt like the chars development through the story... i dont know... this type of comedy is different from anything ive seen so far... not saying that its bad... its just new. Higly recommended if u r looking for something different to watch....
Koizora [恋空]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
So~so.. the main problem for me was the fact that the plot was full of cliches. The casting was OK not bad actors (and its always good to see new faces) but the actors weren't thaaat good (the boy is kind of ugly... and the girl is not that cute). the music is the only thing i really enjoyed in this dorama. NaH... maybe those romatic/drama thing is not working anymore on me... or maybe they could try something a lil different next time. Not a bad dorama tough just nothing memorable.
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
This dorama really sucks... but its not one of the worst i've seen. All those messed up characters is just disturbing (i was disgusted by all of them... including Aya's character which is most "normal" of them). The so called "twisted plot" is pretty annoying as well... altough the few last episodes were quite nice to watch. I dunno.. maybe its just me but i didnt quite like all the "evil aura" this dorama gives. i mean... a lil bit less of Machiavelli would be really appreciated in this dorama...
Kurosagi [クロサギ]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
From the beginning i tough "kurosagi" would be a good dorama to watch... but after some time u just get sick of it... The end is kind of silly too... It could have been much better.... Thumbs up for Yamapi and Horikita Maki...
Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji 4 [救命病棟24時 4]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
Honestly... i dont like medical doramas (something like ER)... and when i do most of the times the medical dorama in questions is as much unrealistic as possible (take Iryu for example.. or even KiraKira). The background of Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji season 4 is based on real facts on japanese medicine (or at least i think it is).... so yeah.. i didnt like it. But lets be fair... thats just my taste for doramas talking... maybe if u r looking for something with a lot of medical stuff this dorama is excelent (not sure... i know nothing bout medicine). So it's 3 out 10 for this dorama, but maybe its worth a try if u like medical shows.
Last Friends [ラスト・フレンズ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The dorama is marvelous.... but the ending is a big let-down! The actors puts a really good Job (Ueno Juri really deserved all the awards she got by her work in Last Friends). The plot is quite good (dealing with so many issues at the same time...) But they throw all that away in the last 2 episodes. Last Friends could be one of the finest doramas ever but its almost look like the writters got lazy in the ending. Its so weak... some side-storylines doesnt quite get a ending.... Some r not even developed (Nishihara Aki character for example). Nways... i really recommend this dorama, but dont expect a good ending... the ending just dont stand on the same level as the dorama.
Liar Game [ライアーゲーム]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Not a good dorama... and it gets really boring after a while... Even Kurosagi (wich i didnt like) was somewhat better than this one.. Toda Erika did a good job playing her char. but the rest of the casting didnt help her... Matsuda Shota is really annoying (i mean.... he did a good job in HYDs... but i guess he didnt quite fit his char in Liar Game...) Liar Game is a poor dorama... the casting is bad... The only i thing i REALLY enjoyed was the OST.!!!
LIAR GAME 2 [ライアーゲーム 2]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Honestly unlikely most ppl who watched liar game im dont really care 'bout the puzzles/games at all (i mean... they r fun to watch but this show put the character in such an irrealistic environment that in the end i'm really interested in the plot). With that being said i must say that this one is a 'lil better than the previous season. Nao~chan (Toda Erika) finally got to do something apart from being a cry-baby who believes in everything. They did a better job with the "main opponent" this time as well... at least now the viewer got the chance to understand the opponet a lil better. And i kind like the ending of this season... where the main char naiveness finally changed something. Altough for some reason i still dont like this show's concept at all i can say that at least they improved something... now i will wait for the movie hoping that they made it even better.
LIFE [ライフ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Overall a nice dorama. A lil bit disturbing tough.... i mean 11 episodes 'bout bullying is kind of annoying! Good casting (it's always nice to watch some dorama wich have some actors who didnt play any major roles in the past... It would be bad if all doramas ended up with JE's boys, Erikas - Sawajiri~Tohda, Aragaki Yui, etc... etc...) AMAZING theme song by Nakashima! A GooD plot... but maybe they could have done a movie instead of a dorama.... Nways... its a good dorama.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
One of the Best Kimura Takuya's work... (the best one would be PRIDE... IMO) Altough i dont enjoy ROMANCE doramas that much... this one is really worth!!! =^^=
Loss:Time:Life [ロス:タイム:ライフ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Quite nice... some episodes r really good and others r just so-so. Each episode has an amazing cast. At first i tough that all that "lost time" and the judges concept were kind of weird. but in the end having all that "soccer's style" really made this dorama something different. If u r looking for something different Loss : Time : Life is highly recommended.
Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]
Rating: 2/10 (Watched)
Its just like Pride, Good Luck!!, Beautiful Life... but IMO Pride and Beautiful Life r much better... Didnt like the ENKA song... and the plot is really simple... To make things worst... some actors doesnt fit their chars. very well... Uchino Masaaki is really annoying playing the older brother...!!! Love Generation isnt bad.... its just too simple imo...
Love Shuffle [ラブシャッフル]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Almost perfect... honestly i was not in the mood for "romantic" genre when i first started watching Love Shuffle. But the show is really enjoyable! the casting is amazing and all the characters r really interesting (and Love Shuffle really did a great job buildin' up the characters as the show goes on). The plot is really well done.. i loved the fact that there were so many funny scenes in this show (The Pandas jokes always succeeded in making me laugh). The ending is amazing! Although one love couple is pretty obvious since the beginning i was surprised by the other ones. Well... i dont give this a 10 just because some scenes were a lil boring (just a few)... if i could i would give it a 9.9 iut of 10
Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Really good actors... Even the support roles r perfect.... The plot was well made... But the ending could be a little better... If not by that i would have a 10 for Lunch no Joou
Majisuka Gakuen [マジスカ学園]
Rating: 1/10 (Watched)
One gotta love the AKB's girls to bear this dorama. The plot is something like Crows ZERO (and believe when i say that the fighting scenes in this one is EVEN worst than C.Z.). The girl's acting skills made me believe that maybe i'm a excellent actor.... *sarcasm*. Even the songs doesn't make sense whatsoever! Honestly... if one isn's MAD about AKB (WOOOOOTA!!!) i cant point out any other good reason for watching this.... One of the worst doramas EVER!!!!!!
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Overrated!!! I mean... Majo no Jouken is a good dorama... but i have watched much better ones... The casting is good... the main plot is OK... but it feels like something is missing....... Well... imo the dorama is just OK.....
Maou [魔王]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Well... Maou is amazing!!! OMG... Ohno is quite a good actor... he did one of the best acting i've seen from an Arashi member (well... Nino still my fav. one...) Didnt imagine that he could do the role of the "bad guy" so perfectly.... and yet he proved me wrong (i mean.. c'mon.. his face makes him the Arashi's nice guy). nways... bout the dorama... AMAZING CAST!!! SUPERB PLOT!!! Everything goes right in this dorama.... If i have to point out a negative point in this dorama that would be the last 5 seconds.... i mean.... Do the dorama REALLY need something THAT cliche? (thnx God it doesnt affect the story.... Let's hope they dont have a sequel... lolz..)
Medaka [めだか]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
It somehow follows GTO/Gachibaka/Gokusen/Taiyou to umi/and other school doramas in the storyline; but it adds something new by putting older students in the class. And also the class doesnt have a gruge against teachers/adults neither the students were all violent kids (that was a relief... i was kind of tired of all those school doramas following that concept). Personally... i love school doramas (they r my fav.) but i was getting really tired of them cuz they all looked the same.. Just with a slight difference Medaka really stands out... Really worth watching (btw.. if u dont like school doramas... dont even bother with this one.. afterall in the end it still follow the same concept of all those school doramas).
Mei-chan no Shitsuji [メイちゃんの執事]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
Boring and stupid. Although i found the first episode quite nice... the following episodes were a big letdown! didn't quite like the casting as well..... Most of the character were kind of WTF and the plot is just horrible (And the sheeps were soooo annoying showing up randomly). But i gotta say that i laugh pretty hard in some scenes (although just a few) so i give some points for that. BtW.. whats the point of having three dorms. and all that "stella" thing if the dorama dont use them at all....... good to watch if u r having some sleep disorder issues tough.
Mukodono 2003 [ムコ殿2003]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I didnt watch the first Mukodono so i cant really compare them.... but i found Mukodono 2003 pretty enjoyable. Its very original (mixing real TV show and stars with the dorama...) i mean.. its nice to see Kago and Tsuji.... i was shocked when the get's guy (i think its dandy or sumthing like that) appears.... Altough they didnt really play any importance roles in the plot... they appearence really adds something to the dorama.... Nways imo Mukodono is not memorable... not that heartwarming... but its pretty enjoyable to watch.
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Finally watched the first one... Well.. the story is better than the second one... but the characters were better in the second one. All the rest is pretty like the same.... Nagase's char helping each family member withe their problems and showing them the importance of family. They could probably work more on the eldest brother..... his part on the story was to plain and dull.... Nways... its worth watching....
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Really Funny! And nice acting by all the JE members... Nagase, Tegoshi and specially Koki. (i never imagined him playing those kind of "stupid" char.). Good plot, this series is one of the best comedians doramas i've seen so far. Honestly it does look a lil' american"ish" like that Adam Sandler movie (wich the name completely slliped ou of my mind) but i dun see why it should be a problem... Higly recommended if u r looking for some laughs!
My Girl [マイガール]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Well.. i do like Aiba~kun but i gotta say that his acting skills r worst than a monkey he should stick with variety shows (imo hes the best arashi member in that) and leave the doramas/movies to other arashi members... nino for example (Damn.. he even went to hollywood! The best actor from Johnny hands down!) The dorama is really heartwarming... and has a nice storyline.. the characters r nice but Aiba just ruins this show! The rest of the casting is amazing... the lil gil is adorable (the best child actress i've seen since Nana~chan). The ending is exactly the same as Yanpapa... really simple (they could have come up with something better). If not for Aiba and his mediocre acting skills i would have rated this dorama a 7 or even 8.
My Little Chef
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Yada Akiko did a wonderful job in this dorama.. on the other hand... the Dorama appears (at least imo) that it doesnt have a main plot whatsoever... Nways.. some of the stories r good... others not that much... well.. wat im trying to say is My Litte Chef is not the best dorama... (it faaar from beign that) its just OK!!!
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
A excelent dorama... I really liked to watch Okada Yoshinori as a teacher... (damm... he's soooo funny!!!) And the trio (kuzuya, yamapi and Horikita) has an increditable chemistry in this dorama... they work really well together.... Very original... the plot is marvelous.... and the ending is also unexpectable...... Really nice...!!!
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Overall a good dorama.... Splendid casting... a nice plot and scenes that made me laugh my head out!!! But yes.. i must agree with those who say that Nodame Cantabile is a lil bit overrated.. I mean... its a good dorama (at least imo) but there r many other better than this. IMO the major problem in Nodame is the ridiculous number of characters in the story (and its not like they appear just one episode and disappear.. they continue appearing on the dorama as the show goes on...) I found a lil hard to pay attention for the main couple, the two teachers, the maestro, the S-oke's members, the R-S member's, Chiakis's ex-girlfriend, the school director, Nodame's friends, the gay violinist, Mine's father, the reporter and his assistent... Damn... do they really need that many characters???
Oh! My Girl!! [オー!マイ・ガール!!]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Not a bad dorama.... but there r tons of family doramas better than 'Oh! My Girl!!', but i gotta say that Moco and Rika really did a great job in their roles i could really feel a good chemistry between them on the other hand Rosa char didnt add much to the show. The show gows smoothly from the beginning to the end (with only a small twist in the plot). Nevertheles the story is very predictable (even the ending). Its worth watching just dont expect something memorable......
Oishii Gohan [おいしいごはん]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Amazing family dorama! One of the best i've ever watched... its fun and very enjoyable. Just one lil' advice: if u r one of those who likes those kind of "teen" doramas with Matsujin, Yamapi, Aragaki and Toda u probably wont like this. "Oishii Gohan" is one of those doramas that r suitable to watch with your family.... young brother/sister.... A family dorama (and its been ages since i watched one dorama like this). And the soundtrack is so nostalgic (im not that old... but i remember my parents listen to those songs). Damn... i coundnt help but sing together Misora Hibari - Kawa no nagare no Youni! And the theme song of this dorama is pretty good as well (Color - Aoi tori). the casting is amazing... the plot is pretty good (dont expect a lot of twists, suspense... since its not really this dorama's intentions) Nways.... Amazing dorama... highly recommended.
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
OMG!! Orange Days has the best scene of "love declaration" EVERRRR!!! And the second best as well!!! Damn... ORANGE DAYS is soooo heartwarming!! And it show how good is to have friends! The casting is marvelous.... Narimiya.. Shirashi Miho... the singer Shibasaki Kou... and of course.. Tsumabuki Satoshi! IMO Tsumabuki is one of the most talentous actors in Japan! And he did a marvelous job in Orange Days...!!! Orange Days is my fav. dorama so far...!!!
Orthros no Inu [オルトロスの犬]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Nice dorama! altough not that original... The creators of Orthros no Inu started from a cliche (opposing powers stuff) and from that they did a pretty good job on the plot. Good twists... a good ending (imo).. very enjoyable character develpment. The casting is ok... its nothing memorable but its not bad as well... There r some scenes that makes no sense at all... like one guy goin' to a ER room.. touchs the patient and no one sees that... That could be better made... but in the end Orthros no Inu is a quite nice dorama....
Oyaji~ [オヤジぃ]

Papa to Musume no Nanokakan [パパとムスメの7日間]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Really funny... With a wonderful casting.... The show has some minors problems that annoyed me a lot... but in the end i loved this dorama.. So far one of the best that ive watched on 2007.... (loosing to Proposal Daisakusen) Aragaki Yui's acting skills really surprised me... Altough Hiroshi~san really steals the show!!! He's an amazing actor... I really like to see more of his works. (looking for them right now... WOWWWW... he plays Oda Nobunaga!!! =^^=) A really good dorama.... I wouldn't had complained if they made it a little longer... really worth a try....
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The best "Takuya's Dorama" i've watched so far... Apart from the fact that i dont enjoy hockey that much, Pride is a nice dorama... good actors... nice plot... The only thing i really hated in this dorama was that "Ice Godess" thing... i mean.. c'mon!! WtF was that??? And if u think really well it has nothing to do with the dorama.... if they have that taken out... no one would miss it. And imo the dorama would be better!!!
Proposal Daisakusen [プロポーズ大作戦]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Almost perfect... Proposal starts really good, and then each episodes seems to get a little better thant the previous one.... But in the end it gets worst! Speaking of ending.. Proposal Daisakusen has one of the most predictable endings ever.. (at least imo) i could almost say everything that would happen in the end.. But overall its an excellent dorama.. The casting is superb, The songs are awesome (Ashita Haeru Kana by: Kuwata Keisuke is wonderful!) In the end this dorama is really heartwarming... and some scenes r really funny!!! If only the end of this dorama was a little bit better i would give a 10 out of 10...
Puzzle [パズル]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
So-So... I would have given a higher rating if Puzzle wasnt a complete worst version of Trick. Some of the episodes are plain stupid (e.g.: the last one) and even the better ones dont get even close to be as good as the stories from Trick. Since its one plot per episode... things goes really fast.. and sometimes it makes the episodes unbearable to watch (bodies beeing discovered almost at the same time.. lack of time to explain the reasons behind the crimes most of the times its all about revenge, wich makes the plots really predictable). Nah... if u r looking for some mistery doramas go watch the Trick series... if u've already watched.... well.. dont expect to much of puzzle (its not worth it).
Regatta [レガッタ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
The first episode is really boring... Then the show starts to get a lil bit interesting and the last few episodes u get the feeling that whoever did "Regatta" could use one more episode. Not the endind is confusing or anything like that but it feels like they had to make the last few episodes shorter (they dont even show the most important race of this dorama.... only the results). And those "special effects" (also in the last few episodes) were really unnecessary (not to mention lame). And thats a shame... the plot of Regatta is quite enjoyable... the casting is ok (nothing memorable but they put quite a nice acting)... even the OST is good but the last episodes (and the first one) just ruin this show.
RESCUE ~ Tokubetsukodo Kyujotai [特別高度救助隊]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Pretty good dorama (much better than the hyper-overrated "Code Blue. In "Rescue" the characters interact with each other. LoL). IMO "Rescue" is much more of a tribute to the firemans than "Code Blue" was to the paramedics. Nways.... The casting is not the best one i've ever seen... I really dont like Nakamaru Yuichi (i dont like KAT-TUN, didnt like him in Sushi Oji or in Yukan Club) imo hes just annoying. The rest of the casting is pretty decent. The plot is pretty much what u can expect from these kind of doramas: Each one or two episodes shows a different situation. "RESCUE" is a good dorama but far from being something memorable.
ROOKIES [ルーキーズ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
My comment... hummm... go watch wonderful life instead of this one. Rookies has no main plot whatsoever.... Its just about deliquents aiming for Koshien. I only gave a 5 out of 10 for this dorama because of the baseball scenes. I mean... i gotta say that they r much better than wonderful life or H2... but still... they could work a lil more on the plot....
Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Really heart warming...!!! Good actors... beatiful locations... (makes u wish that u could live somewhere like that island... well.. at least i did...). Nice characters.... and a great character development was done in Ruri no Shima. Truly this show is almost perfect... almost! The ending is kind of crap if compared to the quality of this show. U got that feeling that the dorama is yet to be finished (and the SP doesnt help at all). Well... but if they messed up with the ending.. they got it right at the last scene... really beatiful! (and i was waiting for the main char use that word!)
Ryusei no Kizuna [流星の絆]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Quite a nice dorama... Intriguing and at the same time funny (a different concept that i've never seen in any other dorama) but they kind of lost it in the last episodes. Btw... the ending is a big letdown... The reason for the murders is just ridiculous. The casting is pretty nice (not the best though) honestly i dindt expect the chemistry that Ninno, Nishikido and Toda showed. Overall its an excellent dorama the only reason i didnt rate it a 9 or even a 10 is the last few episodes they totally lost it in those episodes.
Sailor Fuku to Kikanju [セーラー服と機関銃]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I kind like this dorama... Altough i tough it was a comedy (judging from what i've seen on the first episode) i was really shocked to find out that it was a tragedy... And thats something unusual... Nagasawa Masami's character would fit a comedy dorama better. Nothing agaisnt Nagasawa~chan... but they could give her a character that would actually fit the plot. The rest of the casting is ok... nothing spetacular nor bad. Well... i liked the plot... very original!! The only huge problem is the one mention before... tha main char. doesnt fit the story... But overall its a nice dorama...
Samurai High School [サムライ・ハイスクール]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Samurai High School starts with a very interesting stories and shows some good characters (altough most of the times they r so exaggerated). But in the last few episodes the show just starts to go downhill. In the last three episodes for example i was struggling to watch... the plot didnt make sense whatsoever. It could been such a marvelous dorama but unfortunately the ending was idiotic. i dont really recommend this one (but the firsr episodes r worth watching).
Saru Lock [猿ロック]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Saru Lock really is a stupid dorama.... yet it is very funny!!! Quite a nice comedy dorama. The casting is pretty good the actors really add something to the comedy, the plot is simple and plain but it works fine (i really dont expect a amazing plot from comedy genre). On the other hand all those sex related stuff during all the show gets really annoying sometimes... And the ending for this dorama probably would get the award of worst ending ever! It doesnt feel like an end at all. i mean... i watched 6,5 hours of Saru trying to get laid and talking 'bout his missing dad and in the end........... nothing (i was really disappointed). Nways... worth for some hours of laughing.
Seigi no Mikata [正義の味方]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Silly story... But extremely funny! Couldn't stop laughing from the very first episode until the last one! If u r looking for a serious plot... a lot of twists in the story, and stuff like that well my suggestion is: stay away from Seigi no Mikata.. other than that i highly recommend it! BtW... im one of those Yamada Yu's haters.. and still couldnt help fallin' in love with this dorama. Shida~chan is such an amazing young talent... hope to see more of her in the future (but not in stupid doramas like Tantei Gakuen Q). Anyway... i loved this dorama... its so stupid that one cant help but laughing all the way to the end.
Seito Shokun! [生徒諸君!]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Finally.. a school/teacher dorama where the teacher doesnt come from a gang or yakuza. the concept of this dorama is somewhat very similar to GTO... something happened in the past and students from a certain class lost their trust on teacher... than comes a new teacher and lil by lil she starts to gain their trust back....(altough i gotta say this... Seito Shokun is did a much better job than GTO...) I guess the casting is ok... nothing extraordinary bout it... Some good and well-known actors... as well as some new talents (and some new actors who probably should stop acting...) Nways... "Seito Shokun" is a great dorama... not the best school dorama out there but still worth a try...
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
SAD!!! But the idea of Sekai no chuushin is not really original... i mean.... i kind of tired of those (a girl n a boy falls in love with each other.... most of the times the GIRL has a disease... and both of them fight in order to have a happy life) Each dorama changes a lil bit the plot... but in the end they r all just the same.... Nways... if i dindt watched other doramas before.... maybe i would have enjoyed Sekai better... ITS a EXCELENT DORAMA... Worth a 9 out of 10....
Sh15uya [シブヤフィフティーン]
Rating: 2/10 (Watched)
Horrible!!! If u r one of those otakus who likes Metal Heroes, Tokusatsu and stuff like that u still got a lil' chance that u will eventually like "Sh15uya" (LITTLE chance).. otherwise its just terrible! Basically they tried to do a Japanese version of Matrix and it didnt work out well (Btw.. i dont like Matrix but this one is way worst than it). The plot sucks.... The battles (?!?) r annoying... and OMFG the special effects, no comments about that... see for yourself. The PEACE guy is really annoying with all those random talking ("In the fall Meow Meow" Wtf thats supposed to mean??). The only positive comment i can say bout sh15ya is the casting... i kind of like Aragaki and im a big fan of Saya Yuki (BtW... y shes not in the Jdorama database?!?! She did Dandori and Ganbatte Ikimashoi as well as some other doramas!!!) Nways.... "sh15ya" is horrible! Nothing more than that....
Shibatora [シバトラ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
The best 2008's dorama i've watched... I mean, i was pretty disappointed after watching Rookies, Gokusen 3 and specially Code Blue. Shibatora is the best 08 dorama i've watched. Even better than Maou..... Nice actors.... a superb plot.... good funny scenes... and when u finish watching one episode it makes u want to watch the following one ASAP. Really good dorama..... thumb up. BtW... it has one of the BEST show's opening EVER!!! And the ELT song is pretty nice as well.... OVERALL an excelent dorama... Thumbs up!!!
Shika Otoko Aoniyoshi [鹿男あをによし]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Finally... a dorama that take place in a historical city and not in Tokyo (or any other big city)-some island in Okinawa-sone city in Hokkaido-or some small city that doesnt even have an JR. And they choose Nara! Damn.. for that i already give this dorama 3 points! As for the story.. its quite silly. Something you could expect in a children's movie (not a bad thing though... some children's movie r pretty nice) But Shikaotoko didnt work out for me... The only thing that made me want to watch the whole dorama was to know who was the "nezumi"s and the "kitsune"s messengers.... (well... at least something made me want to watch this... i couldnt say the same for a lot of doramas). The casting did a pretty good job (specially the Shika!) Nways.. overall its not a horrible dorama... just dont expect something memorable... watch it like u would watch a kid's movie!
Shiroi Haru [白い春]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
One of the best (if not the best) family dorama i've watched so far. The plot is original and brilliant! It goes beyond all that "work hard to be a better father for your family" when they put 2 fathers on this show (one by blood and the other who raised the kid) both always wanting the best for the kid... what makes the viewer understanding both point of views (in the end i was cheering fpr both of the fathers). Amazing character development (one of the best i've seen) SUPERB casting (Hiroshi Abe and Kenichi Endo have such a chemistry betwen them... its amazing!). Shiroi Haru so far is the best 2009's dorama i've seen! Highly recommended!
Shokojo Seira [小公女セイラ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Im not really into those fairy tale stuff. But this one is pretty enjoyable... despite the cast (wich imo is far from beign good) the over the edge characters and the plain and simple story i was having a good time while watching Shokojo Seira. Well.. maybe the bullying portraited in this dorama was a lil' over the board but in the end its a nice dorama. Nothing really memorable but quite enjoyable.
Shomuni [ショムニ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
One of a kind.... damn.. its hilarious!!! Esumi Makiko really caught my attention.. Shes a good actress.!!! And all the other actors have done a excelent job as well..... If u r looking for something different... i recommend this one... =^^=
Shomuni 2 [ショムニ 2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Better than the first one.. at least imo... The last episode is marvelous... Altought most of the times i dont like sequels as i liked the first one(e.g.: Gokusen 2... Trick 1&2.. and probably Hana Yori Dango 2) I really enjoyed Shomuni 2 better than the first...
Shomuni Final [ショムニ ファイナル/庶務二課]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
IMO Shomuni 2 was the best one... Shomuni Final starts really well. But the last episodes really sucks (speacially the LAST ONE) Well... but its still a good dorama to watch... really enjoyable!
Stand UP!!
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Nino, YamaP, Oguri Shun and Narimiya are in it... and that's just about all the reasons one can have to watch it... Stand UP!! is kind of the japanese version of American Pie... and its even less funny (the dorama is kind of annoying) the plot is reaaaaally bad... but the casting (the support roles included) are nice... Stand UP!! is one of those doramas that are good to watch when one doesnt have anythink else to do (and one is not in the mood to think a lot...) Plain Plot... nothing thaaat original... good casting.. that sums up my impressions on this dorama...
Star no Koi [スタアの恋]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I was expecting a major rubbish here.... much for my surprise Star no Koi is amazing!!! Reaaaally funny... u ought to feel sorry for Tsuyopon character. Very original many comedy/romance nowadays doramas could learn a thing or another in this one! Good casting (the very first tsuyopon'd dorama i've watched and found him a good actor) Higly recommended.

Really good... but i didnt like the theme song... specially at the final episode...
Sushi Oji! [スシ王子!]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Quite a nice dorama.... "Sushi Oji" use the same idea of "KiraKira Kenshui" one main character going under the guidance of many instructors. But unlikely KiraKira, Sushi Oji dont waste time over trivial things (e.g.: support character's history... On KiraKira there's even one whole episode just for one of the instructors..) Well... afterall Sushi Oji is 3 episodes shorter than KiraKira. Nways... the casting is pretty lame and the 2 JE's guys dont add much for this dorama. while i was watching the dorama i keep asking myself y would they cast "famous" actors as support roles... i mean... they totally steals my attencion from the main actor (for petes mama's sake... its been ages since Koichi~kun last appeared on a dorama... If it was not for the KinKi Kids i probably wouldnt even remember him). Nways... except for the casting... Sushi Oji is a quite nice dorama imo....
Taiho shichauzo [逮捕しちゃうぞ]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
I didnt like this dorama very much.... Its... hummmm... strange!! The fighting scenes r 2 horrible... some actors r terrible!! On the other hand Taihou shichauzo is really original...!! And i must say that i laughed really hard at some parts...!!! I guess u can say that this one is OK....
Taiyo to Umi no Kyoshitsu [太陽と海の教室]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Quite a good show.... and OMG!! They did what i never expected to watch in a school dorama.. that was pretty nice! The casting was so-so... (im not a big fan of Oda Yuji) but 2 actors really steals the show... Gaku~kun and Yoshitaka Yuriko. Hope to see Yoshitaka in a main role in the future (since its almost impossible for Gaku...) The plot is the same as another school doramas (teacher help students stuff) and it was pretty interesting. I would say that Taiyo to Umi has nothing to do with Gokusen or GTO... more like the total opposite of Dragon Zakura..... Nways.. a good dorama.. thumbs up!
Taiyou no uta [タイヨのうた]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Good Dorama... The casting is ok! Altough i LOVE Sawajiri Erika, Yamada Taiyuki is far away from beign one of my fav. actors... And i must say that i liked the movie better... IMO even the song from the movie ("Good Bye Days" by Yui) is better than the songs from the dorama... Overall i really enjoyed the dorama.. I found it really heartwarming! In the end i liked it more than i tough that i would....
Tantei Gakuen Q [探偵学園Q]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
So-So... although some episodes were really nice (with a superb plot and stuff) some was just rubbish. The same thing goes for the casting some young actors r really good but some sux bad. Speaking of wich i dunno 'bout the manga or the anime but watching a dorama with some brats looking for serial murders and doing all those detective stuff is really annoying. "Tantei Gakuen Q" is those doramas that r good if u dont have anything better to do (or watch...)
Teppan Shoujo Akane [鉄板少女アカネ]
Rating: 3/10 (Watched)
Horrible.... This dorama starts bad and gets worst as the series goes by. If one is looking for some dorama similar to the concept of Teppan Shoujo Akane (but much better than this one) just go watch Sushi Oji... its waaaaaay better than this one.... Teppan Shoujo has one of the worst plot ever... wrong choices on casting (i love Maki~chan... but in this one she's just bleh!) even the ending is just plain simple.... didnt found any good reason for someone to watch this.
Tiger & Dragon [タイガー&ドラゴン]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
At the beginning i wasnt expecting much from this dorama... But i really changed my opnion after wathing the first episode...!! And it gets better and better!!! Tiger & Dragon remenbers me of Kisarazu cat's Eye... not only because of the casting (Okada Junichi, Tsukamoto Takashi and Abe Sayado...) but also because the way the episodes are developed... Nways... i really recommend this one for ppl who r looking for something differente... I had a good time while watching this one!!! Thumbs Up!!!
Tokyo Friends [東京フレンズ]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
The japanese (almost) version of "Sex in the City".... Well, at least i think that american show looks like something like Tokyo friends (since i never watched Sex in the city). Yeah... and i didnt like this very much neither. the songs are quite nice to hear... the casting did a pretty fair job... bot the story is boring as hell! And more than 1h for each episode.. damn.. i had to watch each episode like it were 2 episodes (30min each). And all that "man always cheat".. "but i love my boyfriend".. "Girl.. im here to help ya!" just got on my nerves!!! Well.. i do love Otsuka Ai... But Tokyo Friends just didnt work out for me....
Triangle [トライアングル]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
The begining of this dorama is so slow-paced.... not to mention that the story gets really confusing at this time (so many characters appearing at the same time and at the same time a lack of character development). Then the show gets a lil bit more interesting... u start to wonder who's the culprit and stuff like that (i could even say that the lack of chemistry betwen the characters didnt really bothered me.. but at least the lead roles could have some. I mean.... Goda starts to trust Sachi afterall) and then we have a good twist in the plot with a non expected murder but at this point the identity of the culprit get predictable (and u start to wonder the reason why he did that). And finally comes the end... and i KNOW that a lot of japanese doramas gives a crap reason for the crime but TRIANGLE gets the award of Crapiest reason ever!!!! Not to mention that one can easily predict whos the murder 1 or 2 episodes before the final one and c'mon.. if u r gonna give THAT crap reason... u could at least made it a litlle less predictable! If u r looking for a good mistery/police dorama go watch something else... i reaaaaaly dont recommend this one.
Trick [トリック]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Its strange.... but good at the same time... If u r tired of watching all these romance doramas and comedies... this one should do great!!!! It remenber me of Scooby Doo... LoL...
Trick 2 [トリック2]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
The first pne was much better... altough i liked some stories from this one (the last one and the taxi one...)
Trick 3 [トリック3]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The ending is the BEST!!! The stories are a little weak in this one... Specially the one where the old folks never dies... (the explanation for the trick is the worst from all series...) i still believe that Trick 1 was the best of all....
Tsubasa No Oreta Tenshitachi 1 [翼の折れた天使たち]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I liked the Aya and Ueno's ones.... The one starring Horikita Maki is ok... and i hated the Yu's one.... (as for my rate... i would give an 8/10 for the first and the last ones... 7 for the second and 3 for the third.. divided by 4... Seven out of ten). As for the dorama... the casting is pretty good (even the support actors r r amazing actors), the stories r pretty well made (except by the third one). Honestly i dont like those kind of shows (short stories... lack of character development) but this one is really good... worth watching!!!!
Ushi ni Negai wo: Love & Farm [牛に願いを - Love & Farm]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
A good casting... a beatiful scenario (i loved the fact that now i can say that at least one dorama that i've watched dont take place in a big/medium size city*Osaka, Tokyo, Shizuoka....* or in some island in Okinawa) Honestly "Ushi ni Negai wo" is quite funny. And the plot is not thaaaat bad (altough a little "cliche") The major problem is the uncontable things that goes by without a explanation! SPECIALY the fact that one student keep appearing and dissapearing in a randomly way!!! And.. OMFG.. that love-square is REALLY annoying! Eventough i kind liked this dorama... i cant give anything better than a 5 out of 10...
Uta no Onii-san [歌のおにいさん]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
This dorama is.... hummm.. intriguing! A very different concept from every other dorama I've ever watched. At first i tough i wouldnt like this dorama at all.. i was just downloading cuz my gf is a big Leader's fan (i still prefer nino!). And much for my surprise "Uta no Onii~san" was a great dorama. The first and the second episode were a little off compare to the rest of the show.... but as the show goes on it starts to get better and better! The ending is kind of BLE! they could have manage something better... still... this dorama is pretty good one. Worth a try if u r really looking for something different (Ohno really puts up a good show.... almost as good as nino! LOLz!) And the episode where Sakurai Sho shows up is just hilarious!
Voice [ヴォイス]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
A nice dorama... Doesnt have much of a "Rewatchable" factor.. but still is a pretty good one! amazing casting (LOVED Eita's character and all those "Doshite?") Each episode stands on its own... the stories r pretty nice (made me cry a few times)... Well.. if the american CSI would be more like this dorama i would probably like the show better! Dont expect to see murders cases or sumthing like that... this show is just plain beautiful.
Wakaba no koro [若葉のころ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The firs dorama ive watched.... Altough i dont remenber it really well.. (i was 11 years old back then..... btw... now im 22) i remember that it was pretty good!!!! I really liked this dorama... i wish i could watch it again.... its worth a try!!
Water Boys [ウォーターボーイズ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Great Dorama... Really funny (i couldnt stop laughing from the beginning to the end of this dorama!!!!) Awasome casting...!!! An original plot... Honestly one of the best doramas ive ever watched!!!! Definetly a MUST-SEE!!! If i could i would give a 11 out of 10.... Seriously... ITs REALLY FUNNY!!! Funnier than Gokusen, Kisarazu, Tiger & Dragon, Densha Otoko, or n other dorama ive watched!!!!
Water Boys 2 [ウォーターボーイズ2]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
But for the ending... this dorama would get a 10/10 score..!! In many ways its much better than the first water boys... The plot... the casting... the music (hmmm... the music?!? NVM... The first one had better bgms...) But the ending is REALLY disappointing... well.. at least imo...!! But overall its an excelent dorama!!!
Wonderful Life [ワンダフルライフ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Overall a nice dorama.... A nice (altough simple) story... Good actors (not talking 'bout the kids... OMG.. the "main-kid" actor made me want to puke!!!! Almost all the serie he just put the same "cant fell nothing" face!!! This dorama main problem (IMO) its the fact that.. damn... its so slow!!! U could skip some episodes and u wouldnt be missing a thing... (Damn... that "hit the ball" episode is sooooo boring..!!!)
Yamada Taro Monogatari [山田太郎ものがたり]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
First things first i didnt read the manga.... so i cant make any comparison (in fact.. i never read mangas... they give me headache) Nways... its a lovely dorama... Nino and Sho r great actors, specially nino... but i must agree with those who say that he didnt fit Tarou's character really well.... But still he's a good actor and beside that problem he managed to play his char really well.... The relationship betwen those 3 main characters kind of remind me of Wakaba mo Koro (thnx GOD they didnt use a love-triangle situation!!!) But if theres sumthing 'bout this dorama that really should be praised... that imo would be the last episode!!! Damn... Yamada Taro Monogatari has one of the best endings i've ever seen!!! Really touching!!!!
Yan Papa [やんパパ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Its beautiful!!! Its really touching! The IWGP's couple is r perfect in this dorama... (altough the dont play a couple...) Also Goto Maki plays her char. really well.... Very good Dorama...
Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru [ヤンキー母校に帰る]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Its good... imo even better than Gokusen, Dragonzakura, Gachibaka! or GTO.... Much more original.. and the plot is really good. And for once someone didnt try that "New-teacher-worst-class" explanation... When the new teacher always end up in the class that school doesn't want... But the ending ruins all the dorama!!! It could've been much better!! (Well.. i didnt watch the SP...) but i felt like i was missing one last episode.... Nways... afterall i really enjoyed Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru..!!
Yasha [夜叉]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Better than i expected (yeah... i wasnt expecting much on this one...) Nways.. its waaaay to predictable... And it could be like 2 episodes shorter (maaaaany scenes r tottaly unnecessary...) "bout the casting... the only actor ive see in another doramas before was Abe Hiroshi and hes amazing (no matter what role hes playing) and Kashiwabara Shuji (from Ace wo Nerae). Both of them r good in this dorama... but Ito Hideaki steals the spotlight!! He has some amazing acting skills.... *thumbs up for him* Well... maybe if i liked a lil bit more those suspense dorama i would have enjoyed it a lil more...!!! But imo Yasha is just OK....
Yasuko to Kenji [ヤスコとケンジ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the funniest doramas i've seen. Absolutely hilarious!!! Even the CMs in the end of the episodes were extremily funny (cuz of that AD..... damn... that guy was funny!). An amazing cast that really puts a good show on your TV. The plot is somewhat plain but since its a comedy dorama it doesn't really bothered me at all. Damn.... i really recommend Yasuko to Kenji... i laughed non stop with this one. Didnt like the ending tough.... not that its bad... but its just do not keep up with the rest of the dorama....
Yuukan kurabu [有閑倶楽部]
Rating: 1/10 (Watched)
horrible!! REALLY horrible! No main plot whatsoever... (even those "one-episode-one-story" have episodes with more connection betwen them) Good points??? Well... if you like JE you will probably like this dorama... not only they got Jin and Junno (from KAT-TUN) and Yoko (from Kanjani8) as the main characters... they also got that little boy from Hey!Say!Jump and Koyama (from NEWS)... Nways... thats the only reason that i could found to watch this dorama. Hummm... maybe the first episode was ok (i felt that this one was goin' to be an ok dorama.... as soon as i watched the following episode i realised that i was sooooo wrong!). Not worth watching....
