marspeach's drama votes (6)
Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]
Excellent but under-rated show.
Gonzo - Densetsu no Keiji [ゴンゾウ]
Best mystery /cop drama ever. The acting was top-notch, and the story unfolded like a classic mystery novel.
Haken no Hinkaku [ハケンの品格]
This show was so hilarious and addictive. Hooked from the start.
Kekkon Dekinai Otoko [結婚できない男]
Best drama ever! Abe Hiroshi rocks.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Classic show. Hooks you from the start.
Love Shuffle [ラブシャッフル]
Hooks you from the start- recommended to everyone.

Abe Hiroshi [阿部寛]
Sexy voice and fantastic acting in some of my favorite shows.
Eita [瑛太]
Crazy hair and Dumbo ears yet I still find him so attractive. Great varied roles like in Unfair, Loss Time Life, Nodame Cantabile... usually with goofy hairstyles that I only love him more for.
Natsukawa Yui [夏川結衣]
Loved her in Aoi Tori and Kekkon Dekinai Otoko already, but once I saw her in Muri na Renai I had to add her. Amazing actress.
Shinohara Ryoko [篠原涼子]
So talented! All of her roles are so different and she gets so into all of them!!

This was a really good show except for one major flaw- the couple had no chemistry. I couldn't stand Kaoru anymore by the second half either. But I liked all the other characters.

Weird premise- a family/horror drama. It wasn't scary but it was really touching. I cried in nearly every episode. I would almost have given it 10 points but it made me cry too much; it was painful.

Funny stuff and hot guys but not much of a story here and the video/sub quality was horrible
Aoi Tori [青い鳥]

Really nice looking show. At times intense, other times slower. I liked the first half better. The 2nd part was good but slightly forced and it made me uncomfortable.
Arifureta Kiseki [ありふれた奇跡]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Slow-paced but interesting.

I thought the first ep was boring but it definitely improved as it went on. Took a common Jdrama theme (older woman) but really did it well.

Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]

Excellent stuff. Crappy ratings but best show of Winter 08. Dealt with tough topics but also had some lighter moments that made it fun to watch. Last episode was a little bit of a let-down but I'll give it 10 pts.
Asunaro hakusho [あすなろ白書]

Good show! A couple episodes were on the slower/boring side and there were cheesy moments but it had excellent acting and was very nice to watch on the whole.

Two hot guys and a beach... What more could a girl ask for?

Great touching show. Tokiwa Takako was great. Kimutaku was his usual cool character but with a funny hairstyle and sunglasses.
Bengoshi no Kuzu [弁護士のくず]

I didn't expect to like it so much! Really funny and just entertaining to watch. Loved to see such a different role in Toyokawa Etsushi just after watching Aishiteiru to Itte Kure.

Funny but stupid and frustrating to see Oguri Shun's character just keep on giving when he has nothing. Still, it was nice to see him in a different role from his usual silent loner types.
Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon [美少女戦士セーラームーン]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Sailor Moon is one of my weak points. Doesn't follow the manga or anime too much but it's fun if cheesy and kiddy. And has hot guys.
Blackjack ni Yoroshiku [ブラックジャックによろしく]
Bloody Monday [ブラッディ・マンデイ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
It wasn't perfect and yes there were silly/boring/leaps of logic parts but I enjoyed it and found it really suspenseful. Another one where you have to be prepared for anyone to be a traitor. Miura Haruma is still too much of a pretty boy but I found his character's best friend to be really hot for some reason.

Well-done but totally dark and depressing. The kids should have just turned themselves into the police at the beginning and gotten off fine but then there wouldn't have been a story, I guess.

It was cute, I guess, but just way too LOUD! Everybody was yelling or whining all the time. Please, just talk at a normal level! I think they did that to hide the fact that the story was jumping all over the place.

Messed up horror/suspense/mystery show. I hate horror but it sucked me in until the messed up ending.

Churasan 2 [ちゅらさん2]

Not as good as the first series by any means but still enjoyable to get an update on everyone. Eri's hairstyle was not very flattering, however.
Churasan 3 [ちゅらさん3]

Eri got so skinny! She looked more mature but Fumiya still looked the same.
Churasan 4 [ちゅらさん4]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Worst of the Churasan sequels. Really short, yet the second episode seemed to drag on to me. Where was Haruka? They didn't even mention her name! Oh well, I was still happy to see the rest of the gang.
Code Blue: Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei [コード・ブルー]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I thought the first episode was HORRIBLE and way too cheesy but it got better and really enjoyable as it went on. Good performances by most, especially Toda Erika, the nerdy guy, and the flight nurse in addition to the "real adult" actors. Unfortunately, the two seemingly main stars of the show, Yamapi and Gakki, were horrible. Pi was so wooden and boring and Gakki was a crying baby who looked waaay too young for the part, with a horrible hairstyle to boot.
Daisuki!! [だいすき!!]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Inevitably cheesy but overall a very touching show and a different subject from the usual stuff. Karina was great and so believable playing retarded. Cried several times per episode.

Cheesy, heart-warming medical show.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]

It was alright. Abe Hiroshi was awesome as usual but I found all the constant tips about studying, etc. to get kind of boring. It was funny and decent but not my favorite teacher show.

Cute show for kids. Don't expect much. Ito Misaki is still a horrible actress.
Engine [エンジン]

Not bad. I liked the orphanage scenes. Kimutaku's racing was just a side-plot though, and felt out of place.

First Kiss [ファースト・キス]

First time I tried to watch it the main character annoyed me. Tried again and it actually wasn't bad, but not great either. I liked the colors and the bright cinematography and the music.

I watched this because of Nakama Yukie. It was really funny and everything, but Yankumi's emotional speeches at the end of practically every episode that would just resolve everything got pretty tiring after a while.
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Pretty much the same thing as Gokusen 1, except with different students. It wasn't as good as the first one, but I still got a lot of laughs out of both.
Gokusen 3 [ごくせん 3]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
Worst of all the Gokusen series! I shouldn't have watched it! The second season was bad enough but at least it had some hotties. They're all ugly or look 12 years old in this one. The acting is worse too. And the story is obviously the same, lame-o recycled one. Just watch the first season, the only good one.

Funny, touching, good acting. Could get a little bit repetitive but I liked it.
Hana Yori Dango 2 [花より男子]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Still a good show but not quite as good as the first season- WAY MORE REPETITIVE. The formula- Makino and Doumyouji are going to be together. Doumyouji's mom/another girl or guy causes trouble. One of them says they don't want to be together anymore. The other persuades them to get back together. Then repeat from step one. Still, I enjoyed it.
Hanamura Daisuke [花村大介]

If you thought Last Friends was a disappointment, wait until you see this! Talk about over-the-top! The acting wasn't even as good as in that show. The two leads, once again, were the worst. Kitagawa Yuujin was HORRIBLE and Maki was only passable. I only rated it as high as I did because it was so laughably bad.

Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
I wanted to watch a mystery show. I had read some of the manga. Matsujun as Kindaichi solves the mysteries. Erm, nothing too special about it. The sub was also awful, similar to the DO show. I think it was subtitled from a Chinese translation. There were many times when the subs were just not what the characters were saying and it was pretty funny.

Watched it shortly after watching the Kasouken no Onna series. I liked it a little bit better because it felt a little more personal with all the characters. I liked most of the cases better too but the two series are still very similar and I'd recommend both. I especially liked the cop, Tsukiyama.

Really interesting show but it got depressing sometimes with all the deaths and all. My favorite eps were the first one with Eita as the camera man and the one with Tokiwa Takako as the mob lady. I loved her purple kimono. She looked so elegant.

Definitely the best show of winter 2009. Sounds like it will just be a typical romantic comedy but it is so much more than that- wonderful cast of characters, good acting, twists and turns around every corner. Must-see!

Didn't expect much after the first ep but it turned out to be really entertaining. Natsukawa Yui was incredible. Very different from her Kekkon Dekinai Otoko character but the show did have some similarities. Very character driven. Not perfect, but one of my favorite shows.

It was overall a cute romantic comedy. Nothing too special to make it a favorite or anything but I liked it enough. Kubozuka Yosuke was very good-looking all clean-cut in this role. I thought the last few episodes were getting a little bit repetitive with the back and forth between "yes" and "no" indecisiveness.

This was a very sweet, if a tiny bit cheesy drama. A little bit of cheese is good, though, and this one doesn't overdo it, thankfully. I'm a little sick of disabled girl stories but that's not the main point in this one.

I thought it got off to a slow start but after the first few episodes when it started to get into the mystery it got better. Acting was good too, especially from the older actors. The family and character scenes are nice but I really cared about the mystery more.
Seigi no Mikata [正義の味方]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
It was cute and had lots of funny moments but I found it really repetitive and frustrating. Makiko is a bossy beeyotch but somehow hides it from others. Yoko is a pushover and complains but still does everything sister wants. Over. And over. I liked Yoko's little romance with Hongo Kanata but they should have done more with it.

Great first episode but then gradually went downhill. Turned into big-time melodrama and cheesiness. I think everyone who worked at the hospital needed an operation at some point. Most of the acting was good but I wasn't feeling Kanno Miho. I think she was trying a little too hard.

My favorite season, I think! It seemed like they were running out of ideas for mysteries though because some of them were pretty familiar. The last episode was by far the best ever!
