Shiroi Kyoto [白い巨塔]
outstanding plot with excellent performance by the actors/actresses. but i sure hope the medical sector is not as horrible & corrupted as depicted in the drama.

Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
A pretty straightforward drama with no surprises or twists. But what I like about this drama is the realistic plot it has. It feels like an life-story that would happen to anyone around yourself. Didn't quite felt the struggle the female protagonist had & too much was focused on the treatment etc. It needs to have a little more dramatical elements.

Ai no Uta [あいのうた]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Thought that this drama is kinda under-rated. The story plot's not too bad...except for the unattractive male lead, so to say. Quite a heart-warming family-themed drama. Sadly, they really picked the wrong male lead. He looks too old to be a father of 3 young kids & for Miho to fall for him. Nonetheless, this drama is enjoyable.
Aikurushii [あいくるしい]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
I've always enjoyed family-based Jdoramas. The Japanese producers are really good at winning tears from the audience. The values potrayed in the drama are simple yet meaningful. Excellent performances by the young actors & actresses. They really touched me. And Uta-chan is so cute!!!!!! I would want a daughter like her...hahaha! A nice & heart-warming drama. Highly-recommended!
Anego [アネゴ]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
What happens when you are over 30 years old & unmarried? Moreover, not attached & stucked in a working world of the men. This drama truly reflects the status of women in the society of Japan. A woman's happiness is to quit her job, get married & stay at home for good. Anego - Japanese for big sister. That's what 32 year old Naoko-san is known as among her peers. She's like a big sister to all in the company, providing her fellow colleagues a shoulder to cry on & a person to pour your woes to. So who does she turn to when she has troubles? Another excellent performance by Shinohara Ryoko. She brought out the exasperation of a 32-year-old single woman seeing her fellow comrades get married after one another. Dislike the plot where they made Ryoko fall in love with a junior colleague who's 11 years younger than her. Too over done. Like the idea of having Naoko-san "talking" to the audience at the start of each episode. Especially like the scene where all the female workers sent Naoko-san off on her last day of work. Girl power rules!

Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
This is the 2nd sport Jdorama I've watched & I must say it's better than Ace wo Nerae. Because of the same actresses in both shows, (Ueto Aya & Sakai Ayana) I couldn't stop comparing the 2 dramas & the plot. Thank godness there weren't too much similarities except for the usual fight-on-even-though-you-are-going-through-hell-in-the-training spirit that's hovering around all characters. But of course, there're bound to be cliches in such dramas & no matter what, you know for sure the team's gonna win & everything will go alright. No surprises so to say.

Matsushima Nanako is so charming in the show! I admit. I have a thing for career woman. A very nicely done twist in the relationship between the 2 leads. No matter how strong a woman is, she still needs a lover....

A rather cute drama with a very interesting plot. Somewhat like a fairy tale! Too good to be true. Thumbs-up for the excellent performance by Itoh Atsushi as Densha. He is so nerdy but cute at the same time. Got kinda irritated at the overly long scenes where the BBS participants chat & give their support & encouragement for Densha. Prefer watching Densha & Hermes-san together. Nonetheless, this is a refreshing drama that stands out.

Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
I thought it was one of those typical school-themed dramas again, but I was wrong! This drama's not about rebellious students (although somewhere near), but on a lawyer's attempt to bring 6 students from one of Japan's lousiest high school to Japan's top university - Todai. The drama went into details about Todai's entry requirements, exam tactics etc. Ahhh! It makes me wanna go back to school all over again!
Egao no Hosoku [笑顔の法則]

Goldfish - that's what Takeuchi Yuko is referred to by Abe Hiroshi in the show but I don't see the resemblance anywhere near. A very up-lifting drama. Yuko's never-say-die spirit is very encouraging for all.
Engine [エンジン]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
"Jiro! Jiro!", that's how the kids call out to Takuya in the show. Extremely love the role Takuya plays. You can sense the seriousness in him, though he appears nonchalant. He has got his gentle side, although he looks tough all the time. From hating kids to giving up his lifetime dream & career for them in the end, this drama is no anywhere near the tough boy racing show that of Initial D. It is instead, heart-warming - like a cup of hot chocolate taken on a balmy rainy evening.

Japanese dramas like to feature certain occupations i realised. From schools to hospitals to pilots to this, firemen. Anyway, it's always nice to learn about some on-the-job details. Rather nice drama with a couple of touching scenes. Especially like the episode where an old man sets his house on fire on purpose just to see Mahiru (starred by Uchiyama Rina). That was the most touching episode ever!

kinda boring at lst with very predictable plot. but the last episode was excellent! it won my tears a couple of times. My fave scene was where Tamura Masakazu & Kuroki Hitomi were preparing for divorce & also how they met a year later. What Tamura Masakazu said to Kuroki Hitomi melted my heart "There's something you can't do. That is to die before I do. I won't forgive you if you do so" Awwww....

Wasn't too keen to watch this initially, thought it was just some other typical sports-themed youth drama. But when I started on it, I got hooked! It featured some kawaii female & male leads & like all sports-themed dramas, it taught the spirit of endurance, patience & never-say-die attitude towards challenges in life, though cliche. Till now, i still can't forget "catch row! catch row! catch row!" =P
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
After hearing much about this drama, I finally watched it. Sadly, it did not live up to my expectations. While certain scenes of the drama are funny, it's lame most of the time. This drama lacks originality and I seriously think school life themed dramas are over-done & too cliche. So much that it loses surprises. However, credit goes to Nakama Yukie for taking on such a nerdy yet cute role.

H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Very, very, very similar to an anime I once watched, Touch. But apparently, it's not based on that anime but another. Anyhow, a typical teenage drama with the expected love triangle story & what to do with life after graduation & all that. But it's nice seeing the baseball matches & all. It made me understand the sport alittle more.

Having watch the anime version of HYD, I would say it's a zillion times better than the drama. After watching the drama, I still do not understand what's the big hoo-ha about. Prolly just the starring of handsome boys. A typical, really too typical teenybopper idol drama. No surprises at all & the drama's too short & ended rather abruptly. Nice guest appearance by Nanako though.

Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
This drama marks the 100th Jdoramas I've watched. A drama I've been anticipating & it did not disappoint me. Very thought-provoking & tear-jerking. There was not a single episode that I did not shed a tear. Like the little snippets of quotes from the real Aya & photos of her showed how strong she was struggling to live on despite her illness. This drama also has a superb theme song which is very aptly named - Only Human. We are all only human & precisely because we are human, we live strong & on. Ichi Ritoru no Namida....I think I did shed that much of tears.
Ichiban Taisetsu na Hito wa Dare Desu ka? [一番大切な人は誰ですか?]
Rating: 4/10 (Bought & Watched)
I bought this drama with regrets, and watched it dreadfully. This drama totally lacks focus. Half-way through you'll wonder what is the storyline trying to prove? A divorced couple rekindle their love? A teenage daughter hates her father but loves him at the same time? Or that benevolence from the new wife saves the day? A family drama turned bad. Very bad.
Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Prefer the drama version over the movie. It had more time for story development & emotion flow. Performance by male lead needs to be improved though. He looks constipated when trying to show the melancholy side of him. Nonetheless, this drama is truly touching & watching it again (despite knowing the storyline from the movie) still brings the same emotional stir in me....

A very tear-jerking & thought provoking drama. It left me thinking alot about life. What if I were to lose my eye-sight in 3 months? Will I be strong to live on? Will I be so selfless to bear all the pain alone? What if my loved ones were to lose their eye-sight? Will I be magnanimous enough to give them all I have? The final scene when Shunsuke finally loses his sight is beautiful....no words said, no regrets felt. Just unlimited amount of love that asks for no return. Such sweet sorrow....
Jikou Keisatsu [時効警察]

This drama is surprisingly good & meaningful. A silly plot it may seem, but it has got lotsa underlying messages. About life, relationships & love. It tapped on the relationship between friends, family, colleagues & lovers. Especially like the last few scenes of the last episode. It's so goddamn touching! Love does not fade over time. It grows as you misses someone.
Kao [顔]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Another breathe-taking crime thriller. I've always like Japanese crime thrillers & suspense dramas. They never fail to hook me. Same goes for Kao. Like the exploration of different cases in each episode it makes the whole drama easier to digest & anyone can just pick up the plot even if he/she watches it half-way through. Especially like it when Shishima tells Mizuho not to snatch his words before he can start saying them. And Mizuho will always reply "Ok!" with an earnest look on her face.

This drama started off really slow & boring. You'll need alot of patience to watch through all the episodes. It made taking over companies, becoming the CEO & starting a new company from scratch seem like child's play. And as usual, the bad always turn good & the good, turn angels. Thank god the story plot took a better turn at the end.
Koi no Jikan [恋いの時間]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
It's all about love. That's what Koi no Jikan is about. Love in the adult world, love in the forbidden way, love in the family, love in its unexpected way. One may find this drama slow-paced, but the simple storyline with rich elements is what attracted me to the drama. Like the relationship between the 2 sisters, the jealousy they have for each other, the squabbles and the strong kinship. It's all so realistic!

You might hurt someone without even knowing it & in turn this will change your life...

The drama talks about humanity & the complicated relationship between people. How your past will haunt you & how you free yourself from within yourself. Takenouchi Yutaka's English is surprisingly good!

Maybe I've watched too many Jdoramas with the hospital theme, this one has got no surprises at all. Not as realistic as Kyumei Byoto nor as dramatic as Shiroi Kyoto. A pleasant watch still.
Nyokei Kazoku [女系家族]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
This drama took my breathe away. Though many may think the whole drama's just dwelling upon one theme - the will left behind by the late father, I think it brought out all that bitterness, selfishness & evil that live in everyone. Like Yonekura Ryoko's strong character in the show. She really shone. Money is not the root of all evil, human beings are.

Interesting relationship between Kimura Takuya and Takeuchi Yuko. Although it's expected that they'll end up together for sure. Love the way Kimura says "Maybe?" Drop-dead gorgeous! I love the theme song too!

Rikon Bengoshi 2 [離婚弁護士II〜ハンサム ウーマン〜]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
I was so wrong to think Rikon Bengoshi II is one of those heavy-themed & slow-paced drama. It's entirely the opposite! This drama is so funny! Unexpectedly funny. Especially love the gangster restaurant owner. Takako sensei herself is a funny character too. Her cold & strong exterior vs her funny antics at certain scenes. I love her to bits!
Rookie!

Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Simple story about a small & simple-minded island & its people, yet full of complicated struggles in life. Never knew such problems exist in a wealthy country like Japan (well, maybe it's fictional to a certain extent). A nice look into island life & not forgetting the beautiful sea & back to basics lifestyle.

simply too touching & beautiful. liked the way the drama flashes to & fro to the past & present. not to mention the gallons of tears i shed....
Shiawase ni Naritai [幸せになりたい]
Rating: 5/10 (Bought & Watched)
A rather bland drama with no surprises. A typical act-cute role by Fukada Kyoko, not much of acting skills performed by her. A nice look into Japan's TV production system, and how as usual, woman over the age of 30, unmarried, suffers as they become chess of male bosses who're obviously more useless. Unless you're a Fudaka Kyoko fan, this drama can be missed.
Shiroi Kyoto [白い巨塔]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
outstanding plot with excellent performance by the actors/actresses. but i sure hope the medical sector is not as horrible & corrupted as depicted in the drama.
Shomuni [ショムニ]

The drama fully depicts the sorrow of working in a big organisation. Very witty storyline.

Slow Dance [スローダンス]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
OMG! I simply love this drama! Another than drooling over dear Satoshi, I like this drama for its simple yet rich plot. It brought out the complications of love between a man & a woman & the subtle relationships between the characters in the drama. Taking things slowly will somehow let you see the beauty you've once missed & a second look at things which you once thought were right. Its OST is not to be missed as well.

Toubousha [逃亡者]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Japanese thriller/suspense dramas never fail to surprise me. Yet another crime thriller that left me sitting on the edge of the seat. My only disappointment was the complicated ending. Somehow, it's not convincing enough. The twists & surprises in the plot were very, very, very well done.
Umizaru [海猿]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
I was still contemplating if I should watch this drama. Since I watched the movie already, I thought it would be a rather similar plot. When I finally finished the series, I'm glad I didn't miss this good drama. It brought out the strong bonding between the umizarus, their struggles with family life & their spouse. The sacrifices they make, and the earning of understanding from the people around them. I was quite put off by the not-here-not-there relationship Daisuke & Kanna had though. And this drama has got hell alot of butt scenes. Hahahaha!
Unfair [アンフェア]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
This drama I've been waiting for lives up to my expectations! In fact, it went beyond! Excellent plot with a totally unexpected ending. Superb acting by Shinohara Ryoko. Japan crime thrillers never ever fail me! This is a must-watch. Thumbs-up! <3

Yume de Aimashou [夢で逢いましょう]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
This drama's story plot only deserves 5 points. A very typical story about a stubborn dad who refuses to let his daughter get married until he thinks it's the right time for her to do so. Especially like the way Nagatsuka Kyozo (Akiko's dad) shouts at his subordinates. He's fierce in a cute manner. Not much of a performance by Oshio Manabu. Akiko & Oshio don't behave like a couple who're about to get married. I think Akiko's love for her father is stronger than that of to Oshio's. Since the plot only got 5 points, the remaining 5 points that gave this drama full marks is of course, kawaii Akiko-chan! She looks extremely cute in her nurse uniform. This drama's highly recommended for Akiko fans!

Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
this drama stands out... [Rating: 9/10]
Very creative story setting that looks into the life of pilots, stewards & technicans. altho the 2 leads (Kimura Takuya & Shibasaki Kou) aren't quite compaitable, the chemistry between them is unique. of coz not forgetting ageless gorgeous kuroki hitomi. a nice peek into the life in the air....
