Fukuyama Masaharu [福山雅治]
Started to like him since Under One Roof. Not just a talented singer, but great actor with good acting skills. He has quite a number of big hit dramas.
Matsushima Nanako [松嶋菜々子]
Has a wide range of acting skills, plus a pretty face and the height that most women wanted.....
Nagasawa Masami [長沢まさみ]
One of the best actress of the new generation that we should pay attention to.
Oguri Shun [小栗旬]
GIVE HIM MAJOR ROLES~!!!!! Would like to see him be the lead actor.
Sakai Noriko [酒井法子]
Started to like her since Under one roof. Superb performance in Heaven Coins. Still looks kawaii and lovely after giving birth to a child.
Shibasaki Kou [柴咲コウ]
She can be a naive teenager in renai hensachi and turn into cool-looking mechanic in GL. A rising star both in drama and music industry.
Shinohara Ryoko [篠原涼子]
Great acting in mukodono series. Like her in "cool" characters . Currently she is one of the top actress in Japan =)

14 sai no Haha [14歳の母]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Dec 2006: I thought it was gonna be the best of this year when I watched the first episode. However it's hard to please the audience since this drama was focus on the controversial topic, difficult to write a suitable solution. For me I liked it alot, there were some annoying parts as well, one will be Satoshi's acting, his expression is soo wooden-ish!! Luckily it became better towards the end. Another is the tabloid thing, it was pointless and exaggerated. Great acting by Shida Mirai, she's only 13!!! And the parents as well. Lastly, SUPERB theme song by Mr. Children~!!! The opening just fits the song perfectly.

Jan 2006: This drama has an interesting start,, however it gets boring towards half way and i'm begin to fed up with one episode one lesson thing, wondering when it will end =/........Thumbs up for both Miho Kanno and Wakui Emi though for delivering a great performance, it made the drama much more watchable.......
Aikurushii [あいくるしい]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
July 2005: Too many characters in this drama, too many 'deep' meaning dialogues, although the scriptwriter is the well known Shinji Nojima, just dun hav the urge to watch the next episode. The children are cute and talented, but what a waste cus the adult cast were great too, some parts were touching, and boring at the same time....
Anego [アネゴ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
July 2005: Shinohara Ryoko san has done it again, she won best actress again woohoo~ There r times when Naoko made bad mistakes, however she will still remain as our Anego, the storyline maybe not that surprising, but still a fun drama about women in their 30s.
Antique [アンティーク〜西洋骨董洋菓子店]
(Watched)
Cakes, cakes, cakes....plus 4 good-looking guy and a beautiful girl, who will not watch it? Cake lovers must watch, a good collection for Mr. Children fans too, the drama included tons of their songs, cos they are the one who were doing the background song. They present the whole story in an interesting way.
Around 40 [アラウンド40]

July 2008: Living green and psychology are two of my favourite topics, plus I can relate well with the story, happiness is not defined by others, but you are the one who decides your future. I really enjoyed this heart warming drama.
Ashita ga arusa [明日があるさ]

Feb 2004: Very motivating drama. Don't give up easily when facing obstacles. A great drama about salaryman, but not my cup of tea.
At Home Dad [アットホーム・ダッド]

April 2007: I enjoyed watching this drama with my mom. It showed us the difficulties of being at stay at home dad/mom in various prespectives. Some of the episodes were really touching, taught us the importance of a family. Learned some tips on dealing the houseworks as well.

July 2007: I really liked the cast, the veteran ones and Karina~ Plus it's a food drama. However sometimes you just feel like slapping Jun's character. The values behind this drama are something we should learn though, take your job seriously, no matter how ridiculous it can be.

Dec 2003: Predictable...but worthwatching. The two leads did a great job, nanako won the best actress and best outfit for this drama. She deserves it. It will be great if more romance between masha and nanako.
Boku no Aruku Michi [僕の歩く道]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Dec 2006: This drama reminds me of Hikaru no Tomo ni starring Shinohara Ryoko. It's another drama about an autistic child. Kinda like Forest Gump as well. It can be quite slow at times, Teru kept on repeating the same action, same dialogues each episodes, if you think it's annoying then this is not for you. It's fun to see him progress each episode, wonder when he's gonna screw up again, and of course his fate with Miyako chan. Karina is HOT in this drama, they really know how to find a suitable female lead to balance up the dullness haha. I enjoyed watching it, a sweet, heartwarming drama that will put a smile on you towards the end.
Boku no Mahou Tsukai [僕の魔法使い]

Nov 2003: The STUPIEST jdrama i've ever seen, but very hilarious, if u tired of sad/ serious dramas, try this. I like it very much. The facial expression of hideaki ito was funny.

Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
July 2008: This is the first Jdrama with political theme I've watched. Being a Japanese language student, my vocabulary has increased, thanks to all these political jargon. Plot wise, I love the chemistry between Kimura and Fukatsu Eri, though I wish that such thing will happen in our political arena (which is kinda impossible), this drama taught me to be more aware of the world of politics and to treat everyone equally, like what Keita does. I was totally blown off by the speech in the last episode, Kimura has done it again!!

Sept 2005: Unique storyline, really showed the life of otaku's and internet-goers. Kinda relate to me. They really put alot of hardwork in this show, u can see how many figure, models, posters they used, try to made us otakus crazy xxD. Story maybe abit silly at times, but its really fun to see those net frens tryin to help Yamada and stuff. And Jinkama-san rocks~~~ The show become much more funnier because of her and she won best supporting actress for this drama hoho~~

Dec 2003: Beautiful drama with great scenery, quite simple drama, about a doctor in a small island which located far away from the main island. Shibasaki kou did a great job as a nurse, and hidetaka won best actor for this. Don't watch it if you love romance story.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Sept 2005: Im goin to hv my final yr exam while watching this drama, thats why this drama grabbed my attention. This show is completely different from those other typical school dramas, the teacher dont have to solve gang fights, drugs, problem students etc etc (only plays a samll part), his only main goal is to send his students to Todai. This show really inspired me to study harder for my exam....well......
Engine [エンジン]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
August 2005: This drama started out quite promising, but in the halfway the show is getting less and less interesting. I think they shouldnt focus on one child, one episode concept, plus the number of children is too many, it kinda get tired to watch the expression EVERY one of them in some of the scenes . Overall, its good however i am slightly dissapointed....so little racing.....

Mac 2005: Another family drama, but involved between the parents. At first u will feel sry to Kana, and the story grows, other characters develop too, they started to be more caring and more understanding. Still, i dun really find that this drama is interesting, maybe i watched too many similar type dramas.......

April 2005: Hmm....theres no sypnosis about this story, is mainly about a guy who has a theft record, deal with his family, his 'another' family, his lover, and the society. Not a new nor an interesting plot, well watch it if u like the cast.

Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Mac 2004: I bought it bcos of the positive reviews, but i kinda dissapointed. This drama is more like those teen drams, with good looking cast and entertaining plot. I don't think nakama yukie fits the role that well, cos she's more girly type, she had to act in some fighting scenes, which is quite fake and speaks in rude language, rather annoying. BUT, this show is funny and heart-warming, with lotz of cute guys, esp shin. Nakama yukie is soo kirei in kimono ( not yankumi ) hehe. Watch it if u're fan of Johnny's boys.

Great selection of actors since this was a manga based drama. Entertaining but i don't think this would happen in my school. I think this is the most sucessful drama of all time since everyone round the world get hooked by it.

Haken no Hinkaku [ハケンの品格]

April 2007: One of my fave this season so far. Shinohara Ryoko can pull of almost any role, can't get enough of her. The relationship between Haruko and the rest are interesting. At first all of them hated/ annoyed by her but in the end, they managed to 'see through' her in their own way. It's kinda unrealistic though, how can she managed to get so many certificates?? That's just crazy O.o
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2005: The actors might be diff from manga, but they managed to deliver it with great acting skills, esp Inoue Mao, she shown us why she is the best version of tsukushi. Her performance was superb, even outshine the charming F4. A well done romance comedy, i cant stop laughing hysterically throughout the whole show. (And Nanako's appearance is a plus =D)
Hana Yori Dango 2 [花より男子]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
April 2007: This sequel has way too many flashbacks, it's draggy and not funny anymore.... Seems like the producers running out of ideas to make the relationship between Tsukushi and Domyouji more tragic, it gets boring fast, whats the point of having Toda Eriko in the end anyway? Even though she's nice to look at lol. Luckily the hotness of Rui and Hikki's Flavour of Life made it watchable. Oh and Nanako =D

Hotaru no haka [蛍の墓]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2005: This drama tells us about the hardships people faced during WW2, how selfish and inconsiderate people can be to survive, and told us not to repeat the same thing again. Nanako delivered a great performance as the 'evil' aunt, and the actors who played the bro and sis did a good job too.

Dec 2003: Heartwarming drama. I like the song by Yellow Generation. Yada akiko looks lovely, so does nana-chan. But i think the story isn't that complete, thats why we have hotman 2....=P
Hotman 2 [ホットマン2]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Jan 2005: Its started out very good, even better than hotman 1, with 2 cute little girls, nanami and ichigo, but the ending really sucked, that's why towards the end the rating getting worse and worse, less than 10%.......i fast forwarded the last 3 episodes -_-"" Lack of originality and the storyline seems abit plain, new cast such as Ichigo and Ayame sensei did a great job to save the show. Dunno why everytime Enzo mad his voice will become very weird....feels very fake.

Their school uniform, fashion trend....hmm....started to write nonsense, well this show is more than ten yrs ago, but really worth watching, about a rich girl accidently switch her body with a problem student.

Sept 2005: This is one of those 'weird' school drama about the teacher playing 'villian', with 12 year old kids as victims. Episode 10 is the most touching episode, too bad the ending isnt that great compare wih it. Amami Yuki played the evil teacher brilliantly, so do those child actors.

August 2005: I've always liked medical dramas. This is another classic for medical dramas, the cast bring out a great performance, the plot included different aspect of each medical students will face during the period of one year.

May 2007: One of the best drama this year. Kimura managed to 'hide' his trademark looks in this, he proved that he can play just about any roles. The storyline is so engaging and I ended up watching few episodes at once, couldn't bear all the suspense. I feel like crying every time Desperado plays T.T The ending caught me.

Nov 2006: One of the best drama this year. Love the interections between Kuwano and Hayasaka sensei~ Their facial expression are priceless. Thanks to the great scripts, with lots of funny one-liner in metaphoric way. I like the subtleness of this drama, the face-twitching, the dogdeball catchball phrase (classic), and the dog is soo cute xD Kudos to the cast for delivering such a great performance. Pay attention to the details when you watch this, the japanese really put alot of effort in the setting and the props. There's never a dull moment.

June 2006: Weird yet good performance by Yamapi, plot can be quite ridiculous at times, cos you'll know what's the ending of each episode. A nice drama to spend your free time, might learn a few tricks and tips as well, just that i don't think some of it will work in real life, since it's based on manga. And Maki chan is lovely as usual, really liked the cast.

Karasawa Miho's Way of love just can't get away my head, love it!! Will watch it again cos i almost forget the whole story.
Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
August 2006: Give this 8 mostly because of the cast, who can resist a drama feat. so many hotties and a bijin lead??? And it's about food somemore?! Storywise a bit simple, kinda dragged in some parts, but then the actors managed to pull it off with convincing performance. Wish that my country got a restaurant like this.....
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Oct 2003: The story mainly focus on 2 of them. More like bro & sis. Dunno why the producer put them together. But seeing both of them definately worth it. Nanako were so gorgeous as sensei! Humour almost zero.
Messengers [メッセンジャー]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2003: Ijima naoko definately is the queen of comedy!! Very hilarious. The ending music video was quite special, watch it if you want to see those actors singing. Fun to watch.
Miseinen [未成年]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Nov 2004: The rating shld be 5, another 3 is because of my dear ayumi~ v(^^)V Abit dark drama.....but the OST very nice, the carpenters, classic~! If u wanna see naked butt of the male lead, do watch it.....and beware, got naked scenes.....(~.~)
Mother and Lover [マザー&ラヴァー]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
May 2005: This is another drama shinohara ryoko won for best supporting actress, no doubt she a great actress. An average drama, mostly about the relationship between the mom, son and his girlfriend. And the last episode very heart warming~ (although abit long, one and a half hour =/ )
Moto Kare [元カレ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Jan 2004: I think that tsuyoshi looks the best in this drama.....typical love triangle story, but realistic. I get to know how japanese department store looks like.....elevator girl....well, my country doesn't have this kind of job.....
Mukodono 2003 [ムコ殿2003]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Sept 2003: Great drama. You will see something that part 1 don't have.Ryoko shinohara's character amazed me. DA preetiest female doctor i've ever seen, well in drama....... I think that part 2 is more hillarious and surprising than part 1. I give 9 cos the plot isn't that great....
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
The plot is better in part 1. More funny scenes in part 2. I like both cos both have shinohara ryoko......ha ha! Am i going to beat by yuko fans?

Another romantic comedy drama.
News no onna [ニュースの女]

...all i can remember is norika tried to "steal" honami's position, first takki's show. The female lead did a great job.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2005: For me, this isnt the typical high school drama, at first it seems like it, but as the story progresses, it gets darker and unpredictable, im not fangirl of the 2 leads, yet this drama manage to hold my interest. I really liked that they emphasize alot on their friendship, not just pure romance, teaches us to apprciate our friends more, and in your heart, u will always know who are your best friends. Plus this drama is hilarious.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Jan 2007: This is one of the few dramas that made me cracked up like hell almost every episode. The most hilarious jdrama I've seen this year. Gotta love classical music after watching it, thumbs up for the actors for putting alot of effort to make the instrument playing scenes looked as real as possible. Nodame and Chiaki were such a CUTE couple =D Love the cast, Stressmann's weird accent rocks lol. The ending scene was touching, typical but fits perfectly to end this drama.

Ooku Dai-ishou [大奧第一章]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Jan 2005: This is actually the first japanese historical drama i've ever watched, this drama is fast paced, with intersting storyline, well how the girls fight for their status in Ooku, btw, hoshino mari is getting prettier, no more chubby face =D.
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
July 2004: I like the concept of this drama, is a love story, but the show isnt just focus on the two main lead, there's other subplot too that made this drama much more worth watching. Brilliant cast plus a great theme song by Mr. Children, thumbs up~
Otousan [おとうさん]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2003: Great cast, great acting but weak script...the beginning was quite boring, and is getting better the rest, the leads acted very well, it could have been better..
Otouto [弟]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
2005: this drama is about the life of the famous Ishihara brothers, one is the former Tokyo mayor, another is the well know actor. Well i dunno much about them, i only know that the elder brother is a racist =/ But political aside, this is a very detailed biography, written by the elder bro to pay tribute to his lil bro, a legend in japanese entertainment industry. (Sorry if i made any historical mistake =x ) Watched it bcos of the actors heehee.
Over Time [オーバー・タイム]

Saw it on tv many yrs ago....can't remember it that much, the relationships involved was made just like Long Vacation....but the ending was surprising. I really love the theme song by the brilliant green.
Oyaji~ [オヤジぃ]

Nov 2003: Great cast. The black girl made the show more interesting. Gives me the spirit to find my own path. If hitomi were my mom, i don't need to do those household chores anymore......:)
Perfect love [パーフェクトラブ!]

I really like this show!! Starring two of my fave..masha and yoshino. Very heart warming comedy...
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
May 2004: For me, this drama is just an average drama....maybe im not a big kimura's fan. The plot is too good to be true, and not many ice hockey scenes though, more like typical romance drama. I was hoping this will be an interesting show but somehow im not eager to watch the next disc when i finished one.......hmm, why....
Proposal Daisakusen [プロポーズ大作戦]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
July 2007: The first episode almost turned me off with lame catchphrase and pathetic main character. Luckily it gets better slowly and reminds me of my school days, telling us not to waste our precious school life at the same time. Then it dragged again, finally ended with a not-so-satisfying ending.
Psycho Doctor [サイコドクター]
(Watched)
Jus because of shibasaki kou, i've watched only the first episode, about kou as a patient who has acrophobia. A bit serious drama.....
Renai Hensachi [恋愛偏差値]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Feb 2004: Superb performance by miki san and okajun in the first story!! Not to mention shinohara ryoko, takako tokiwa, shibasaki kou......i really enjoyed every love story in this drama mainly bcos it was short. Some of the dramas withsimilar theme turned out draggy and boring. The theme song by misia really fits the mood of the drama.
Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
July 2005: This drama had a great start, but up till the end, the plot became less and less interesting, maybe bcos almost all of the villagers side story have been told =/ Nevertheless, its a feel good drama, with great scenery and teaches us to appreciate the nature.
Ruten no Ouhi - Saigo no Koutei [流転の王妃・最後の皇弟]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Mac 2004: This is a historical drama....with great cast. A must watch for everyone cus normally u wont see japanese actors speak chinese and practice traditional chinese customs. As a chinese myself, i really touched by this drama, well acted by the actors, touching plots, im impressed. Learned some history too....
Sailor Fuku to Kikanju [セーラー服と機関銃]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Dec 2006: I like Masami's character is this drama, with squeeky high pitched tone xD But the whole yakuza theme turns me off. The plot is cheesy and predictable, and the ending sucked. Luckily it's only 7 episodes, but then the show could have ended in 2-3 episodes actually, since it's a remake of the movie version.
Saiyuuki [西遊記 ]
Seito Shokun! [生徒諸君!]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Dec 2007: At first glance this drama seems like a typical, cheesy teacher saves the day drama. As it progresses, I was touched how Kitashiro sensei encourages her students, her never give up attitude, it is really motivating, once we truly understand the meaning behind. Ignore cliche, unrealistic parts, so-so background music (not YUI's) and Seito Shokun! makes one of the better high school drama around.
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Nov 2004: [ Quote: I cant even save the person i like the most, yr 1987] The whole drama makes me wanna cry all the time, the scenery, story and not forget the OST, make sure u look at the translation of the lyrics while watching this....so depressing....A truly touching love story, and a very nice ending too~
Shin Hoshi no kinka [新・星の金貨]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Jan 2004: I found that some of the storyline very familiar....two guys like the same girl, then another girl( basically a bit evil ) likes one of the guy, on the other hand, another guy ( innocent type )tried to save the evil girl cos he likes her....and so the story goes on...everyone hurts and hurting each other, finally.....u gotta watch it yourself.
Shiroi Kyoto [白い巨塔]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
May 2004: A drama with a superb cast, interesting plot about the political scenes in medical professions. A bit boring and draggy at times, but this drama bring out the truth about doctors and give us another prespective to think about this job. A very realistic drama, not suitable for everyone though. Thumbs up for both lead actors!! Well acted.

Shota no sushi [将太の寿司]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2003: All about sushi. You will learn a lot bout sushi. Just sushi. Started willing to try those raw sushi...everyone look so young in this drama. The thing i don't like is the sound effect, and the theme song. You have to work hard if you want to sucess.
Slow Dance [スローダンス]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Sept 2005: I have high anticipations on this drama, this turns out to be the biggest dissapointment among summer dramas. It starts out very slow, most of the time just plain talking about hopes, views etc etc.....maybe bcos i didnt appreciate the script, i almost fell asleep. This explains the drastic drop of ratings. Great cast, nice theme song, story wise could be better. My friend likes it very much thou, guess im not that into romantic dramas.

Stand UP!!
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Feb 2004: I think most of the ppl will watch it bcos of those cute boys. Well, i don't like the plot that much....all they can think about were just sex??? Nothing else to do meh? Maybe i'm a bit conservative....very entertaining though, another high school drama, made me want to have bf....*sobz*
Suekko chounan ane san nin [末っ子長男姉三人]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Feb 2004: A very sweet and cute drama. Fukatsu eri and okajun made a cute couple. the three sister were "horrible" but they still live "peacefully" in the same roof. Not to mention the mother, abit oversensitive and a die hard fan of a male singer. The husband song really funny.

Jan 2004: I've read the novel...and heard a lot about the story from spoilers...so the ending didn't surprise me. A very touching drama though.
Suna No Utsuwa [砂の器]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
July 2004: The plot is very interesting but i think it was too gloomy for me. Btw, the theme song by DCT really suits the drama and not forget the song nakai played, shukume.....i started to get sick of it in the end cus they played the song way too many times......but really nice arrangement and great tune thou. This is a great suspension drama, and great performance by the actors in the drama.
Taika no Kaishin [大化の改新]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Mac 2005: This is a story happened during early times in jpn, when japanese still looked like barbarians =x jk. So, imagine urself wats their costume during tht period. Well historical drama always abit serious, this too, but the story getting better towards the end. And is my pleasure to see kimura yoshino again, always. ^^
Taiyou no uta [タイヨのうた]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Sept 2006:I love dramas with music as main theme. This drama started out pretty good, acting was good, since the 2 leads were well known with their acting ability, even though this is just some 'teenage love story'. However, the ending was too.....rushed. It just ended at a weird time, should have cut off all the boring parts and made a better, complete ending. Nice soundtrack and theme song, just don't compare with the movie version, with different characters and settings.
Tatta Hitotsu no Koi [たったひとつの恋]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Jan 2007: Jdrama like this became boring once you watched enough amount love stories, even if it's written by Kitagawa Eriko (Long Vacation, Beautiful Life). However, some of the dialogues were quite meaningful, and I like the switching part of the characters from youngster to adult. The smoking scenes of the 3 main actors were irritating =x
Tenchijin [天地人]

(Bought)
Tentai Kanzoku [天体観測]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Jan 2005: I really liked the cast, but the story line is abit weak. Bump of Chicken definately made the story much more interesting to watch, nice background music compiled from their songs, they rawks~
Teppan Shoujo Akane [鉄板少女アカネ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Dec 2006: This is another manga based drama with cheesy dialogues and formulaic storyline each week. The food part was alright, maybe because I'm not really a fan of tepanyaki. Theme song was quite nice, and the existence of Maki chan made it tolerable to watch, her acting still abit stiff though. I fast forwarded here and there in order to finish it.
Tokyo Friends [東京フレンズ]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Oct 2005: This is Otsuka Ai's first drama, and she did pretty good. Its a drama about friendship, love, dream of a bunch of people in their 20s. Kinda refreshing for me bcos its the first time i watch drama with the theme music, you get to see alot of singing by Otsuka Ai of course. Recommend to all Ai-chan's Fans~

Top Caster [トップキャスタ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Sept 2006: Amami Yuki delivered a great performance as usual, as well as the chemistry between the cast, however, this drama can be very predictable at times, and unrealistic. The jokes sometimes were so lame and unnecessary. It's just another 'Bijo ka Yajuu' rip-off, with 'better' romance plot in it. Quite entertaining though, if you wanna watch some light comedy.
Toshiie to Matsu [利家とまつ]

Toubousha [逃亡者]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Oct 2004: This drama remines me alot of suna no ustuwa, in a different way, full with suspense, mystery, and there's almost a twist in every episode, u will never know whos the real killer is until the end. One thing, mizuki mizuno suddnely become soooo thin until i couldnt recognize her the first time i saw her is this drama, i like her chubby look more......looks more healthy. You will not dissapointed by the performances of the cast.

Unfair [アンフェア]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
April 2006: One of the best drama of this season. Shinohara Ryoko managed to display great acting and awesome range of skills despite her character, Yukihira being compared with her previous role, anego. And again she won the best actress =D The ending really caught me.

Watashitachi no kyokasho [わたしたちの教科書]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
July 2007: Someone recommended this drama to me, and I'm glad that I picked this up. Something different from all those school based drama, and of course darker, heavier. Kanno Miho's acting is superb! The ending was abit unexpected, and I thought it should be more shocking. Expected too much =x
Water Boys [ウォーターボーイズ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Dec 2003: Typical high school drama, i'm started to miss my school-life....quite slow sometimes, cos shindo kept facing the same problem, after he managed to solve it, another comes. Great theme song by masha plus the opening and closing part was nice too.
Water Boys 2 [ウォーターボーイズ2]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Nov 2004: The overall plot is better than the first serie, but the last episode didnt impress me as much as the first series, maybe the choice of the songs.....a really good effort trying to do 5 storey tower, thumbs up for the actors who really put hardwork on this scene. As always, masha's theme song made the whole drama much more worth watching~ i never skip the ending.....XD

Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Mac 2004: This drama really touched me, esp the last part of the drama. And the theme song is really nice, much more realistic compare with other similar theme drama. Too bad shinohara ryoko was just a beautiful vase in the drama........
Yome wa mitsuboshi [嫁はミツボシ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Jan 2004: This is a typical family drama. I think this show will turn out badly w/o kimura yoshino ^^)v I was very mad when i watch the 1st epi...everyone treats yoshino as if she is the maid....as the story progresses, ppl started to change....overall, i think this is just an average drama, yoshino definately saves the show.

June 2005: Theres not much interesting plot occur in the story, mainly about the daily lives of the daugther and her dad....boring. Dun waste your time to watch it unless u are a die hard fan of Yada Akiko. I fast-forwaded the show in order to finish it.
Yume no California [夢のカリフォルニア]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Dec 2003: The three leads did it very well. I love the concept of this drama, but sometimes turned out quite boring and serious. Taught me a lot, about living in this world, is there anything good will happen? Friends do play an important role in teenagers life, they are one of the keys of happiness, wish i had the same relationship in the story too. Very meaningful drama.
Yuuki [ユウキ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
2007: This drama taught us not to give up on persuing your own dreams. Must at least try once. Love the friendship between the characters, even they don't see each other often, but they do care each other. Very inspiring.
