Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]
Bara no nai Hanaya [薔薇のない花屋]
Boku to Kanojo to Kanojo no Ikiru Michi [僕と彼女と彼女の生きる道]
Another must see that stars Kusanagi Tsuyoshi (the other is Boku no Ikiru Michi) ..wonderful story about family/choices/work...really makes you think about what is really important in one's life.

Very funny and entertaining!
Freeter, Ie o Kau. [フリーター、家を買う。]

Karamazov no Kyodai [カラマーゾフの兄弟]
Legal High [リーガル・ハイ]
Funny and entertaining!
Nagareboshi [流れ星]
Ningen no Shoumei [人間の証明]
Top notch, great drama...the story has a lot of heart..not your typical police-detective story investigating a murder crime. Great story line. Story takes place in Odaiba area in Tokyo and in Mississipi in the US...I was taken back by how good Takenouchi's english is... although, I didn't really care for him before, now I am a fan. Cried at the end.
OL Zenidou [OL銭道]
FUN, FUN, FUN! A great comedy about saving money...the character, Kikugawa Rei plays shows that saving money is the coolest thing and also gets the guy, too. I've actually followed her tips, and learned to save too. Never knew saving money could be so cool until I watched this... a great, original comedy...highly recommend!!!!!!
Soredemo, Ikite Yuku [それでも、生きてゆく]
Suna No Utsuwa [砂の器]

Ayase Haruka [綾瀬はるか]
Very pretty AND an excellent actress!
Eguchi Yosuke [江口洋介]
I've been watching Eguchi Yosuke (he is the same age as I am) since Tokyo Love Story, to tell you the truth, I never would have thought when I was watching TLS how awesome an actor he would become. Watched him grow in his roles, he is a great actor, and everything he has been in since never disappoints. Love him!
Eita [瑛太]
Eita may be young but such a versatile actor! I have watched everything he is in, does not disappoint.
Ichihara Hayato [市原隼人]
AMAZING in Karamazov no Kyoudai! Looking forward to seeing him in more dramas...
Kagawa Teruyuki [香川照之]

‘Karamazov no Kyodai’ is a psychological suspense drama based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s last novel ‘The Brothers Karamazov’set in present-day Japan. The story is set in political chaos and a disparate society, similar to Dostoyevsky’s original. Deep, moving and suspenseful. All the brothers here are perfectly cast, excellent acting.

99-nen no Ai ~Japanese Americans~ [99年の愛~JAPANESE AMERICANS~]
I am a Japanese who grew up in America in the time [Rating: 3/10]
I am Japanese American, and I can't believe how UNREALISTIC this show was. How come the Japanese Americans in this movie is soo fluent in Japanese? Ok, I tried to think that maybe they lived in a Japanese community, but I still think unlikely. During the times w/o internet Japanese in the US really did not have much to watch on tv, etc. OK, I do speak fluent Japanese, but that is because I learned it on my own and went to Japan at 18, studied and lived there a few years. and since then I have watched Japanese tv, by subscribing to Japanese Tv. Now thanks to the internet I can keep it up by watching shows online, thank goodness!

Kanojotachi no kekkon
It's about women in "marriage fever" who break it! [Rating: 8/10]
Yup, the title says it's about the ladies' marriages, so we start out seeing the main characters as desperate women who wanna marry no matter what cuz their biological clock is ticking..but this changes along the way...This was the typical view in the US and Japan in the 90sI wish I saw this before I got married to my first husband, it would have saved a lot of pain! Just kidding.
Koi wa Tatakai [恋は戦い!]
LUV'D it!!!! [Rating: 10/10]
I loved everything about this show.. the characters, the story, the music... luved it, luved it, luved it. I even bought the soundtrack, which I play it often...it really gets me going. I was surprised to learn that in Japan it was played up to be "sort of Japanese version" of Sex and the City..because it's 120% better than that stupid American show. The stories and characters don't even compare. A must see for the modern gal.
