Lady Zhuge's drama votes (1)
Iryu [医龍 Team Medical Dragon]
This drama got me hooked on Japanese series, so how can I not give it my vote?

Lady Zhuge's artiste votes (10)
Dohmoto Tsuyoshi [堂本剛]
Okay, so honestly it wasn't exactly love at first sight for me with Tsuyoshi. I even wondered why he was so popular upon seeing his pics. But I did come to my senses after watching his memorable onscreen performances and hearing him sing. He's no doubt a natural born talent in many respects!
Fujiki Naohito [藤木直人]
I'm pretty sure it's his eyes. They're mesmerizing and I can get lost just staring into their depths...mmm...aHeM. So I digress, but you see what I mean? Naohito is a decent actor as well, as I've seen him pull off a variety of roles and honestly I would give anything he's in a try. Plus he sings well too, writes most of his own songs, is very intelligent, and is an all-around good and personable guy. He sets the bar for all other guys. His wife is so lucky!
Fukuyama Masaharu [福山雅治]
I love his natural acting style, enjoy his songs, and admire his versatility. What a charming man!
Horikita Maki [堀北真希]
Maki is so kawaii! Gotta love her beautiful eyes and dainty features, although she's not particularly photogenic. She's also a good actress who will only get better and better.
Karasawa Toshiaki [唐沢寿明]
He's a very convincing, confident, and passionate actor who really gets into his roles. I also find him quite attractive in a non-conventional way. Plus he has this cute pout like no other, haha.
Odagiri Joe [オダギリジョー]
He's a very versatile and talented actor who's really cool and has this endearing look about him that grows and grows on you.
Sakai Masato [堺雅人]
It's his eyes and overall unassuming, quiet demeanor. He gives off this aura of utter kindness with a tinge of sadness. Did I also mention the fact that he's a diverse actor, talented voice actor, mild-mannered, kind-hearted, well-educated, and possesses a look that kills you softly?
Takenouchi Yutaka [竹野内豊]
Looks and talent. He's never failed to impress me in anything I've seen him in and I don't expect this to change.
Tsukamoto Takashi [塚本高史]
Let's see...he's coolness, hotness, cuteness, and sexiness all rolled into one. Those lips will be the death of me, haha! Takashi is a talented young actor who deserves bigger and better roles!
Yamamoto Koji [山本耕史]
This guy is not typically my type, but he is kakkoii. He looks that way without even having to try AND is a fantastic actor as well. I've seen him in a wide range of roles and he has been effortlessly convincing in all of them. He's just a natural performer.

This is a weird romance drama with some funny and unexpected moments. However, it's too draggy in the middle and would have been better off at 9-10 episodes max. Cute ending and catchy OST, though.
Boku no Imoto [ぼくの妹]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
This drama suffered an identity crisis. It couldn't decide on what it wanted to be and ended up barely mediocre at everything. The brother-sister relationship was not convincing, and the lack of chemistry between Joe and Masami didn't help. The love story between Kuki and Saya made no sense. Not all loose ends were tied up. This was a bad show on the whole and deserved the low viewership ratings it received. The only reason I watched it was for Joe.

This is a pretty interesting mystery/horror drama that I finished in only 2 days. There are many twists and turns as various pieces of the puzzle are revealed, though the story got a bit too ridiculous towards the end in spite of itself. I'm still not sure how I feel about the open ending. I like the techno-style theme song "Heart", by D.D.D.

Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I very willingly ate up this formulaic storyline about a cameraman destined to lose his eyesight in 3 months and the pediatric intern dedicated to being by his side and overcoming realistic obstacles to endure the path of life together. The pacing is on the slow side, but to me it's more like stopping to smell the roses rather than an insidious kind. There are many touching scenes (amplified by the memorable OST), especially between the main characters, their interactions with the kids, and several with Shiki and her father. I also love Shiki's profound narrations throughout the series.
Jikou Keisatsu [時効警察]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
There's one case per episode and each one pretty much follows the same formula; some are better than others. Not for whodunnit fans! It tries to be like Trick with the quirky humor, but is nowhere as endearing. The only character I like in here is Kiriyama (Joe Odagiri). Everyone else is rather annoying. I love Joe, but can't believe there will be a sequel to this crap...and sadly I'll probably eventually end up watching it too since Joe makes so few TV dramas nowadays.

I like the drama's quirkiness and suspense, and it's always interesting to see how evidence is used to nab the culprit in each case. However, I'm disappointed that the identity of the culprit is usually pretty obvious, which diminishes the mystery aspect of the series. In short, focus tends to be on the "how" and "why" and not as much on the "who."

My first complete taiga drama. Loved the comradery and humor in here. I wasn't particularly impressed with Shingo's rather bland and flat portrayal of Kondo Isami, but the rest of the main cast did a great job of bringing the colorful, memorable and unique characters to life. Yamanami's idealism, Hijikata's complexity, Harada's lightheartedness, Nagakura's nobility, Gen-san's kindness, Saito's coolness, Todo's earnestness, Okita's longing...I could go on. One downside was the fighting scenes, which sometimes felt too choreographed and fake.

I saw the ending coming and the "twist" was not really a surprise. Probably shouldn't have read about the drama before I watched it. It kind of reminded me of one of those tragic attempt-at-tear-jerking Korean dramas...not really my thing.

This drama starts off well, but gets too repetitive with a certain love triangle. The highlights for me are Takashi's cameo appearances in each episode as Kume.

I predicted the ending as a sort of cruel joke and was pissed when it turned out I was actually right. Bah! That's why I'm giving it a 7 instead of the 9 I originally intended. I enjoyed this drama until about the last episode or so, especially Domoto Tsuyoshi's portrayal of Natsuo.

The kids are cute, but the "mysteries" are way too predictable. Maybe this is meant for a younger (as in pre-teen) audience, but hopefully the renzoku series will be better.

This is a touching series about 7 friends, their friendship, and the harsh reality of life in general with solid performances by the entire cast. Backed by a great OST and theme songs, it's worth a watch!

The drawing cards for me are Takashi and Maki. Unfortunately, the drama itself is quite disappointing and I've struggled to continue watching.

It's a little confusing at first with the interchanging settings, but the storyline is actually consistently smart and funny. It's not your typical drama, and that's a good thing in this case.

First 2 episodes: 6 / Episodes 3-9: 9 / Final 2 episodes: 7 / Overall average: 8 I wouldn't have watched this series if it weren't for Takashi because pretty much nothing else about it interested me on paper, but I'm glad I did. With his usual ease, Takashi does a convincing job of playing Hanagata-san, who's quite different from his "real life self." Fangirl aside, my favorite performance is Akiyama Ryuji as Momoyama-san. This series is definitely one of the better productions of the Spring 2007 season with its humor and character development. Even Tanaka Koki won me over and I really wasn't expecting that. However, this is still a predictable romantic comedy at the core and it did take me three episodes to warm up to the story.

Started out as mildly entertaining, ended up predictable, lame and so not worth the ride. I'm giving it a very generous 6.

I fell in love with the theme song "Ocean" by B'z before I even watched the drama and the latter certainly doesn't disappoint either. It offers a solid, balanced look at the lives, relationships, and of course trials and tribulations of Japanese coast guards. A wide range of issues are covered and handled realistically for the most part. I contemplated, laughed, and shed a few tears here and there too. A certain death kinda irked me, though. Was it really necessary? Plus there wasn't sufficient follow-up on the culprit(s) IMO, but maybe that's beyond the scope of this series.

This drama starts off with a promising first episode, but then drags on and on with boring exchanges between the two leads. It's a shame really, with such an intriguing premise, but I ended up only watching the first half and then fastforwarded through the rest to see how it would end.

The anime element is pretty unique to this drama, but the actual storyline is predictable and average. Tomoya Nagase and Goto Maki give the best performances. Kato Ai's character is quite annoying.

Very, very interesting storyline and an impressive display of versatility by Ito Hideaki in dual roles. Kashiwabara Shuji is also very convincing as a blind Moichi. The main drawback is repetitive flashback scenes which make the drama unnecessarily draggy at times.
