In terms of hotness she should be way at the top. In terms of her performance, she does hold her own. I think I've watched every drama she was in and wasn't disappointed with any of them.

I can't believe I actually finished this drama. I didn't like how Fujiwara always ended the episodes by slapping somebody and making a terrible speech about how to treat women. Miyasako Hiroyuki however was very funny in this drama.

One of my favorites. It's really a great drama for the family to watch. The lead actor was a little annoying with his stuttering and crying. Nobody cries that much, I understand the nervousness part but the crying is a little too much.

I don't know where they came up with the Meteor Garden as the English translation for the title. I guess it's the Taiwanese that did it. However, JDorama translated it as Boys Over Flowers which made sense in a way but the title was from the popular Japanases proverb which literally meant "dumplings over flowers." It has a deeper meaning to it but Makino and Hanazawa Rui talked about it briefly during their trip in a car towards the end of the series.

Sawajiri Erika could have had a better performance. She was better in Taiyou no uta. It's a good thing she had a great supporting cast. Nishikido Ryou was fantastic and Narumi Riko was adorable. The soundtrack was great too. Konnayuki is one of my favorite drama songs ever.

Akai Ito [赤い糸]
A very moving drama [Rating: 8/10]
I was skeptical about watching this movie at first but I am glad I did because it was great and one of a kind. There wasn't much said in the synopsis part about the drama except that it was about Mei and A-kun dealing with trials they had to face in their life. Well the drama is about destined love. Mei and A-kun were destined to be with each other but there are a series of unfortunate circumstances that prevent them from being together. Whether it be parents who objects to the relationship or rivals, these two had to deal with it all the way to the end. There are a lot of twist and turns throughout the drama but each character introduced did play a significant role in bring the entire plot of the drama together. I just didn't know why everything had to be so tragic before everybody became happy. There are so many characters wanted to kill themselves or turned into drugs after being dealt a bad hand in life/love. As far as the actors themselves, they did an ok job playing each character. Nobody really stood out except for Kimura Ryo who played "Taka". He went from being the comic relief in the beginning, the hated boyfriend in the middle, and then just like that he met a tragic end.
Daisuki!! [だいすき!!]
Truly Heartwarming [Rating: 9/10]
One of the better dramas I've seen recently. It's a story about a mentally disabled woman who fell in love with another mentally disabled man. Due to an unfortunate accident the man dies and leaves her alone and pregnant with only her family and friends to help her. Will she be able to have her baby? Her family, after seeing how bent she was on having a child of her own fianlly agrees and allows her to have her baby. That's just the first episode... Throughout the next episodes we see how she struggles to raise the child while dealing with a lot of issues like finding a job, a day care for her daughter, and meeting her late lover's younger sister while trying to keep child services off her back. Till we reach the last episodes where she encounters the biggest challenge of all. Will she crumble under pressure or will she finally steps out of her comfort zone and learn how to do things for herself? Karina did a very good job portraying the character as did the mom and brother. What really surprized me is the number of beautiful women that was in this drama. There is Kotonechan, Anzai san, Natsume chan, and even Momoka the shopkeepers daughter where the mom works. Karina did win win two best actress awards for her role in this drama.
Hachi-One Diver [ハチワンダイバー]
should I even finish the series...? [Rating: 4/10]
The first few episodes seemed interesting until I got tired of the main characters fake crying and screaming. It seemed like that is all he does in the drama. It's really getting annoying. Naka Riisa the supporting actress is also boring in this drama. She has limited lines even though she plays a dual character. The story is interesting enough even though I don't know much about shogi what keeps me watching is the rest of the supporting cast like the two thugs who gives the drama a little bit of comedy and the old "true sword master" in hiding who obsesses about Riisa's breasts. The rest of the players are ridiculous as well.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Will you read this? [Rating: 9/10]
First I was hesitant to watch this dorama. I thought it was just another high school cutesie drama full of overrated young actors who are only popular because they're cute. Much to my surprise I was wrong. It's one of those I almost had to watch all the way through. I had to work the next day which prevented me from staying up all night to finish the series. There were some really funny parts in the movie and I really like Inoue Mao's expressions...they just sem to come at the right time. One of the reasons I wanted to watch the drama was because Matsushima Nanako is in it and of course she didn't disappoint me. I was also hesitant because the main characters were mostly guys but there were a lot of cute girls in it. This is the first time I saw Inoue Mao and I thought she did an excellent job portraying her character. Everybody seems to think that Matsumuto Jun is so kakkoi but I don't see it. He did a good job though I gotta give him that. That whole F4 thing was kinda ridiculous but thank god the story focuses more on Makino Tsukushi but I wish Matsushima Nanako had more part in it though. The OST was OK but then again I think I've grown over that boy band thing.
Hana Yori Dango 2 [花より男子]
totemo omshirokatta [Rating: 9/10]
The drama picks up from the last episode of season 1. It's actually a 2 hour seaon opener which explains why the first seaon had only nine episodes. It starts with Makino lost and alone in New York being robbed and about to attacked until her hero comes to save her. Could it be Tsukasa or somebody else? Another excellent performance from everybody especially Inoue Mao and Matsu Jun. They got into their characters really well. Of course a few characters and guests were added into the series that made the drama more interesting. I liked Shigeru's character and how she always played an innocent villain all the way up to the end when she finally stabbed Makino in the back by lying to her only to take it back right away and play the heroine. They could have made Umi's character a little more evil but I guess they don't want her to be as annoying as Sakurako's character. I was hoping they would have gotten deeper into Akira's background and maybe developed a sort of Gokusen story out of it. Instead they focused more on Shouichiro's love story. I was hoping they'd lay off Domyouji's violent scenes but I guess family entertainment is quite different in Japanese standards than that of American Standards. Seriously all these headbutting and beating up a group of guys by yourself gets ridiculous and redundant after a while. Because of my limited Japanese skills, I had to watch it in subtitles and was kinda disappointed with the translation sometimes. One of the funniest parts is how Domyouji is always using the wrong words or phrases in Japanese and I know it's suppose to be funny but it's not as funny translated. Overall, I'm sad the series ended I kinda wanted to see more. the ending was the usual fairy tale ending but quite nice. HYD 2 is not a sequel but more of a continuation of the whole story so I suggest you watch it if you liked the first one. It's longer than the first one so you wouldn't be disappointed.
Liar Game [ライアーゲーム]
Keeps You Guessing [Rating: 8/10]
This is one of a kind drama. After watching the first 2 episodes I wondered how else are they going to prolong the story? Somehow they did and made it even more interesting. I understand how they fooled Toda Erika's character the first time and even the second time but the third time? That was kind kinda poorly written. I guess after the third time, it explains how she eventually willingly volunteered to enter the 4th game. Also they could've expanded more on the story behind the game's creator. Matsuda Shota's main purpose in participating in the games is to find oout who is behind all this and finally he meets the guy and then what? Lame... I still enjoyed the drama more because of all the games they played with all the twist and turns.
Long Love Letter [ロング・ラブレター〜漂流教室]
WTF?! [Rating: ?/10]
The title does NOT say anything at all about the drama. In the end they mentioned something about the relevance of a long love letter but that was in the end. I was hesitant to watch the drama but I heard some good reviews so I said why not see for myself. It starts out as a typical romantic story. Boy meets girl in the beginning and by some chance lost contact with each other. So a year later boy becomes teacher and girls works in a flower shop. Boy had some interesting students who had love stories of their own. During winter vacation boy asks some of his students to come to school for remedial class. That day it so happens Girl goes to school to deliver flowers and bumps into boy again. They have a little catching up and ends up in a quarrel about each others personalities until girl walks away only to stop and speaks to boy about that day they met a year ago. Their romantic story is about to start again until a quake happens.... This is when you find out that the whole school disappeared and warps into the future somehow. Interesting story, kinda reminds me of LOST, a TV series in the US. Everybody learns how to fight for survival in this new futuristic world while the love ones they leave behind cope with their loss. I like how the creator of the drama envisions a totally different future not of technological advancement but instead the end of the world because of technology and global wars. The whole story makes you wonder that it is possible that the world can end up that way. The ending was open to interpretation, it wasn't a happy ending nor a sad ending. Throughout the series not everybody survives and some of my favorite characters dies. But does anybody survive at all? Like I said the ending is open to interpretation.
Nemureru mori [眠れる森]
Could be better [Rating: 6/10]
The pace is slow and there's no build up to the climax. I do admit that I couldn't figure out the suspense and just had to take guesses which were right in the end but I was sure it wasn't the obvious. There's a few things didn't like in the drama. 1. Why did a few characters have to die unnecessarily. 2. Why throw in a some characters like Keiichiro's mom that will leave you hanging. 3. What is up with that ending? The two can't end up together so one of them died? How did that person even die? I'm so disappointed at that ending. It's similar to the other Kimutaku drama "The smile has left your eyes". At the least the tragedy in the end was more fitting and justified.
Oh! My Girl!! [オー!マイ・ガール!!]
Family drama? [Rating: 6/10]
Ok I watched this drama mainly because of Yoshida Riko. I first saw her in "Shinigami no Ballad" playing a boy and I thought her acting was interesting and funny. I was really sold that she was a boy in that drama. This drama is about a spoiled child actress(Anne) who was left in the care of an aspiring journalist and novel writer(Kotaro). Kotaro had a falling out with Anne's mother who was his step sister and did not want anything to do with Anne. After the Anne's agent(Mineko) convinces him that he really didn't have a choice in the matter he finally caved in and thus begins the realtionship between the Anne and Kotaro. In the beginning the two didn't get along well. Kotaro's hatred for Anne's mother is somewhat reflected to the way he treats Anne. Anne on the other hand have to reflect on her acting skills to hide her loneliness and sometimes to decieve Kotaro. The two eventually developed a strong bond with each other that will be tested in the end. The drama had some good points and interesting twists. Yoshida Riko certainly didn't disappoint me in this drama while Mokomichi is still Mokomichi. I recommend this drama with those who are fans of the actors.
