Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
my first kimura drama and i was stunned by the quality of acting.
Engine [エンジン]
Simply love it! A refreshing change in characters Takuya Kimura played. It moved me when I watched it raw and moved me more watching with subs.
Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル]
Hilarious! And so romantic!!
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
This dorama gave me a deeper insight on the life of airline crew. It did not hurt that the opening scene was a shot of Takuya's body. :-)
Hero
A cooky kind of role for Takuya. The ensemble acting is good and so funny! :-)
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
My all time favorite!
Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]
They made a simple story about a salaryman and office lady so interesting! Of course, Takuya is as ever gorgeous in this. I cannot forget the hair cutting scene of Rikko and Teppei. :-)
Pride [プライド]
It's up there on my list with Long Vacation. One that you will finish in one sitting. This despite the fact that I have not seen an actual hockey game and I come from a tropical country. The view of hockey and the love story between the characters of Kimura and Takeuchi makes a great mix.
Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [空から降る一億の星]
One of the best roles that Takuya Kimura played. Edgy, exciting and sexy.

Inagaki Goro [稲垣吾郎]
farnee!!! :-D
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉]
Multi-Talented
Sakaguchi Kenji [坂口憲二]
First saw him in Pride and am now watching him in Itsumo Futaride. Shows great promise and is good-looking but not in such a pretty way so he has the potential to be in more diverse roles.

GIGI's dramas (130)
Aishiteiru to Ittekure [愛していると言ってくれ]
Anego [アネゴ]
(Watched)
I thought Jin is who I like in Kat-Tun and this dorama confirms it. He's cute! I love the unspoken words between them. I just wished the special was given more romantic treatment.
Antique [アンティーク〜西洋骨董洋菓子店]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Funny character sketches. Reminds me of the ensemble acting of Hero. Naohito Fujiki caught my eye! The story between him and Koyuki here is funny and sweet. Too bad there was no permanent love interest for Tackey.
Around 40 [アラウンド40]
(Watched)
Hohum!! If not for Fujiki-san..
Asuka e, Soshite Mada Minu Ko e [飛鳥へ、そしてまだ見ぬ子へ]
(Watched)
Goro did a decent job here.
Asunaro hakusho [あすなろ白書]
(Watched)
Fallen in love with Toride-kun myself. Loved the sensitive way Kimura played this character.
Bara no nai Hanaya [薔薇のない花屋]

Loving it so far! Shingo is absolutely gorgeous as Hanaya-san. And I love its powerful, beautiful, goosebumpy rose garden scene.
Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I just discovered japanese doramas recently and this was the first i've seen. Great acting from Takuya. If my hairdresser is as oozing with appeal as he is I would be visiting the salon everyday. :-)
Big wing [ビッグウイング]
(Watched)
Gave me a glimpse of everyday life in a huge airport. Kassy is cute amidst all that women. :-)
Bijo ka Yajuu [美女か野獣]
(Watched)
I totally forgot to add this in my watch list!! I liked it. Reminded me of Hero. My introduction to Fukuyama Masaharu. Another gorgeous guy!
Boku dake no Madonna [僕だけのマドンナ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I just fell in love with Kyon! Tackey's face is so beautiful in this drama. It deserved the close ups that the director made. Hasegawa Kyoko and him are just two beautiful people that has great chemistry. :-D
Boku ga boku de aru tame ni [僕が僕であるために]
(Watched)
Takuya played an asshole of a boyfriend here. Since he made me fume, I guess he played the part really well. Great to see the group acting together.
Brand [ブランド]
(Watched)
Thought it would be boring but I was glued until the end.
Brother Beat [ブラザー☆ビート]
(Watched)
I finally watched it after hibernating in my watch bin for so long. And I enjoyed it. I've only seen a bit of Mocomichi in Gokusen and Tetsuji Tamayama in Bara no Nai Hanaya (I hated him there) so it was a welcome relief that they are likeable and handsome characters here. Despite the fighting, the family conveyed love for each other. Made me miss my brothers and sisters...
Busu no Hitomi Koishiteru [ブスの瞳恋してる]
(Bought & Watched)
I thought I will not like it but I did. Goro was cute here but I wish he was more passionate in his romantic scenes. And I did notice Shige..hehe..
Buzzer Beat ~ Gakeppuchi no Hero [ブザー・ビート]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Yamapi has grown up in this drama. Absolutely gorgeous! And the kissing scenes! My hope is back in j-dramas. =)
CHANGE
Rating: 10/10 (Bought)
Another great work from Takuya.
Chuushingura 1/47 [忠臣蔵 1/47]

Still in the watch list.
Dekichatta Kekkon [できちゃった結婚]
(Watched)
such a simple issue of career and family but it still made me cry in the end. it doesn't hurt that yutaka is gorgeous...:-)
Densetsu no kyoshi [伝説の教師]
(Watched)
Nakai was gorgeous here in them suits! It was funny at the beginning for me but became trite towards episode 8. And only became interesting again at the last episode especially with that cameo of Kimura Takuya as the new assistant teacher. Kakkoii!
Densha Otoko [電車男]

In the watch bin.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
(Watched)
I myself got scared about the exams...Todai is that harrowing?? I just wished the romance between Yosuke and Boo has flourished amidst the different results that the experience gave them.
Engine [エンジン]
(Watched)
I love anything that has Takuya Kimura in it! Period. But objectively, this is a drama that tried to veer away from a romantic relationship. Cried buckets in many episodes. More family dramas with a dash of romance for Takuya onegai shimasu!
Fighting Girl [ファイティングガール]
(Watched)
Sakaguchi Kenji was gorgeous here. Did not like Kyoko blonde...
Food fight [フードファイト]
(Watched)
Something that I did not have the stomach to finish..
Friends [フレンズ]
(Watched)
I liked the inter-racial romance angle. First time in the many doramas I've seen. Since it was such a short story though, I was wishing that Won Bin and Kyoko would act more passionate towards each other. Appreciated Won Bin though as he is hot in here! :-)
Furuhata Ninzaburo 2 [古畑任三郎 2]
(Watched)
First time that Kimura-kun was a villain but I like! Also love the Furuhata vs. SMAP special.
Furuhata Ninzaburo 3 [古畑任三郎 3]
(Watched)
Seemed interesting. Wish I could understand everything. But Takuya as a villain is a welcome change. :-)
G@me
(Watched)
My very first japanese movie!
Gal Cir [ギャルサ]

In my watch list.
Galileo [ガリレオ]
Gift [ギフト]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I would have appreciated this better if it was sub-titled. The first dorama that I watched raw! And i found it good. Kimura Takuya was gorgeous in those suits and I shiver whenever he pulls off the hair band..brrrr...
Gokusen [ごくせん]
(Watched)
One of the best I've seen. Funny! I like this even better than GTO. And of course it helped that Matsumoto Jun and Oguri Shun are there to add to the cute factor. :-)
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
(Watched)
A good sequel. Finally I got a closer look at Kame and Jin. And the supporting characters are as always extremely funny.
Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル]
(Watched)
I love this romantic comedy! The banters were crisp, original and realistic. And the actors seem to know how to bowl! Takeshi is soo gorgeous and funny. First time I've seen a funny Kuroki Hitomi and I like!
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Really good visual! The father-son relationship was portrayed poignantly but the love story was a little lame and under developed. Again, Takuya makes eating a banana so sexy! :-)
Good news [グッドニュース]
(Watched)
Though it hoped to convey hope, the dorama left me depressed after all the misfortunes. My very first Nakai-kun dorama and his acting is quite good but could be better. I also noticed that he's not a bad looking guy after all. :-)
GTO [麻辣教師]

my very first sorimachi! funny though i really do not care for too much manga-like acting (overacting sometimes).
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
(Watched)
Liked the japanese version since I saw the Chinese version first. Different treatment but still awesome characterization.
Hana Yori Dango 2 [花より男子]
(Watched)
Good! Oguri Shun played the sexiest Rui.
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e [花ざかりの君たちへ]
(Watched)
Definitely my favorite for this season. Ikuta Toma stole the show! And I find Shun gorgeous as usual but a bit old for the role. His maturity shows in his face. Nonetheless, his chemistry with Horikita Maki is good.
Handoku [ハンドク]
(Watched)
Not the best of Nagase...it was quite a challenge to watch it from start to end...The only redeeming factor for me is Nino of Arashi. :-)
Hatachi no kekkon [20歳の結婚]
(Watched)
I am enjoying it though yes my ears sometimes couldn't stand the high pitch of the women in this drama. And OSHIO, hurry up and make another drama okay? Enough bumming around! :)
Hero
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I had a lot of laughs in this one. Again because of the lame development of the love story, the supporting characters stole the show. It also gave me a view of Japan's legal system. Takuya played the quirky character so cutely. Love the camera work on his face. :-)
Hito ni Yasashiku [人にやさしく / 3ピース]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Little boy Akira made me cry buckets! Never expected to like this series. Shingo sometimes overacts but his scenes with the boy always tugs at my heart.
Homework [ホームワーク]

Somewhere in my drama bin.
Hoshi no kinka 1 [星の金貨]
(Watched)
One of those doramas that I can't decide if I love or just like. And the most melodramatic as well. What's unbelievable is how the writers and director was able to squeeze all those twists in a short series.
Hoshi no kinka 2 / Zoku hoshi no kinka [續。星の金貨]

In my watch list.
Hotaru no Hikari [ホタルノヒカリ]
(Watched)
Loved it! The only dorama that I had goosebumps without any single kissing scene from the leads. Fujiki-san despite his age is as hot as ever. :-D
Hotman [ホットマン]
(Watched)
A tearjerker! Reminded me of the buckets I cried for Be Nice To People. This time it was Nanami-chan who pulled my heartstrings.
Hyakunen no monogatari [百年の物語]
(Watched)
Thought me a lot of Japanese history.
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
(Watched)
It should be Ichi Bucketo no Namida. It's definitely a bucket of tears. But that did not stop me from staring with a drooling open mouth at NAOHITO and that sexy goatee. :-D
Ikebukuro West Gate Park [池袋ウエストゲートパーク]

In my watch bin.
Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]
Itazura na Kiss [イタズラなKiss]
(Watched)
I saw the Taiwanese version first but it did not stop me from enjoying the original. Kassy was sooo good as Irie-kun! The lead girl was very irritating! Hahaha!
Itoshi Kimie [愛し君へ]
(Watched)
I have seen many dramas and Shiki's otosan here to me was the best otosan character so far. The drama is a tearjerker but the overall message is hope.
Itsumo futari de [いつもふたりで]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Cute story but Matsu and Kenji does not have that much screen chemistry though I'm not saying that Kenji is not gorgeous here. It dragged a bit in the middle.
Jinsei wa joujoda [人生は上々だ]
(Watched)
Finally finished it. I actually love the first part better. Dark comedy and not too complicated. I love the doctor Takuya though. Yum! :-D
Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ]
(Watched)
Loved it! Romantic though tragic. And Takeshi Kaneshiro is hoooottttt!!!
Karei naru Ichizoku [華麗なる一族]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
One of the best if not the best work of Kimura Takuya in a dorama. You can see all the emotions of his character through his eyes. It's a drama that you would love to recommend to other people but would not want to watch again for the tragedy that you will surely still remember. Kimura Takuya wa subarashii desu.
Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット]
(Watched)
Love this drama to bits! Out of this world plot but made to look very plausible in real life. I'm such a Koyuki fan! And Matsumoto Jun is darn cute as Momo.
Kisarazu Cat's Eye [木更津キャッツアイ]
(Watched)
Silly at the beginning but its becoming interesting...
Koishite Shinitai [恋して死にたい]
(Watched)
Dohmoto Tsuyoshi was cute here..Kept me interested when I thought I wouldn't be. I love the theme song "Life".
Konya wa eigyouchu [今夜は営業中]

I loooovvveeee it! Fly me to the moon..Kimura singing in English always makes me swoon.:-)
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
A reverse of Majo no Jouken plus a terminal illness. Nao looked hot in here! Its my first drama of him as the lead role. The ending has put me off and could not decide if I like the drama as a whole.
Kurisumasu Nante Dai Kirai
(Watched)
Too short to show off Akanishi Jin's acting talent. But I love Jin's devoted character.
Kurosagi [クロサギ]
(Watched)
Finally finished this. 10 episodes of gorgeous looking Yamapi. I was hoping a better treatment of his character's relationship with Horikita Maki.
Kyousoukyoku [協奏曲]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
This was obviously an early work of Takuya. I could not decide if his character is really lame to begin with or the portrayal lacked depth. The story was good but the ending is soooo flat.
Laundry
(Watched)
Not sure if I liked it..
Long Love Letter [ロング・ラブレター〜漂流教室]

Started watching this drama but futuristic plots really does not interest me...gomenasai..
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I love this series! The love between the two main characters just crept up on them. Their antics made me laugh and sigh. Very romantic! No love words were exchanged but the ending is something I will never forget! Though skinny, Takuya's face is so gorgeous! :-)
Love and Eros [ラブとエロス]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I am in the middle of this but I am already adding it! I love the drama so far. And Nagase? Nagase, Nagase was soooo hot in this drama. One the dramas on my MUST list.
Love complex [ラブコンプレックス]

Just in my collection collecting dust. I should watch it soon.
Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of my favorites of all Takuya dramas. Although the story line is simple, the story-telling was done well. Gave me a glimpse of a life in Tokyo during that time (must still be today). Takuya gave that salaryman character a bigger dimension. Not to mention the fact that he was a gorgeous salaryman. :-)
Love Revolution [ラブレボリューション]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I finally watched it and loved it!!! Naohito was as usual gorgeous but the drama itself is so ordinary in its plot but so real that you can relate. And it is so unpretentious! I love the kisses, kissing and kissu shite parts.
Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
(Watched)
Finally watching it! And damn after making me laugh it's now making me cry.
M no Higeki [Mの悲劇]
(Bought)
In my watch list.
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The overall gloss of the series is surreal even the ending. First Hideaki series I've seen. The characterization of Michi and Hikaru were consistent throughout the series.
Manatsu no Merry Christmas [真夏のメリークリスマス]
(Watched)
I wanted to drag the lead actress to a salon! Hahaha!
Meguri ai [めぐり逢い]
(Watched)
I like the drama but the ending was so lame despite the loooonnng refrain. Naturally Masha is cute and obviously taller than everyone in the cast. :-)
Messengers [メッセンジャー]

In the watch list.
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Love the family interaction. Sometimes Nagase Tomoya overacts which makes me irritated. Cried buckets in the comeback concert scene. Discovered too that Tomoya is cute!
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
(Watched)
Very funny! It wasn't interesting to me at the beginning but when Maki started going to school, I was already dying of laughter from his antics. Nagase Tomoya looked really good in this dorama. I wish he makes something that is more passionate, edgy and serious...
Nanisama! [なにさまっ!]

On my watch list.
Nemureru mori [眠れる森]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Tragic but gripping. Takuya was creepy here. The story captivated me with its many twists and turns. There was a good parallelism with the love story between Takuya, Keito and Yuri AND Kokobu, Kiichiro and Minami. I just felt that there was no need for that kind of ending.
News no onna [ニュースの女]
(Watched)
I liked the subtle transformation of the relationships here. And young Tackey showed a lot of promise. :-)
Nisennen no koi [二千年の恋]
(Bought & Watched)
Tragic but beautiful. :( It's up there in the hard to watch a second time drama like One Million Stars of Kimura.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
(Watched)
Yamapi was absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly good! :-D He overshadows Kame with his screen presence.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
(Watched)
I finally watched and surprisingly enjoyed it. I went beyond the anime acting and saw the beautiful story. I was also surprised that Tamaki can be a romantic lead. =)
Oda Nobunaga [織田信長]
(Watched)
First time to see Takuya in a Taiga drama. Love his portrayal of a down to earth but cunning and sensitive Oda. :-)
Omiai kekkon [お見合い結婚]

On the watch list
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
(Watched)
I'm still glowing in romantic haze. This is cho romantic. Been a while since I did a marathon and this one deserved the sleepless night I had. Despite the height of Satoshi Tsumabuki he looked larger than life here. And that Narimiya Hiroki looked cho yummy! :-D
Otouto
(Watched)
An early Takuya drama. Hated the step mom here! :-)
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Entertaining, interesting, good ensemble acting. Kimura is still king.
Proposal Daisakusen [プロポーズ大作戦]
(Watched)
It did catch my attention...I have never seen a role of Pi that I hated except for this. The guy was a wuss and a wimp. But absolutely gorgeous!!!
Remote [リモート]
Saiyuuki [西遊記 ]
(Bought)
Sitting on my shelf. Not really into costume/period movies.
Sapuri [サプリ]
(Watched)
It was interesting but there were a few shades of stuff taken from past dramas like Long Vacation and Anego. I still managed to finish it and enjoy the drama.
Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai [佐々木夫妻の仁義なき戦い]
Satorare [サトラレ]
(Watched)
I finally watched this! I never thought it would be funny and heartwarming. First time to see Joe Odagiri in action. Too bad no kissing scene for him. LOL. =)
Sensei shiranaino? [先生知らないの?]

Got only as far as episode 1.
Shinsengumi [新撰組]

In the watch list.
Shiroi kage [白い影]
(Watched)
One of Nakai Masahiro's best. It's the first time I saw him kiss in a drama. He should do it more often. :-D
Shota no sushi [将太の寿司]

Have not seen it but in my collection.
Shukumei [宿命]
(Watched)
The storytelling was good! And it grips you not especially when you were looking at two of the most beautiful faces in Japan.
Slow Dance [スローダンス]
(Watched)
Loved it! Satoshi always looks larger than his actual height in his dramas. And Naohito is ever so gorgeous. Unpretentious in the way story was told.
Sono toki haatowa nusumareta [その時,ハ-トは盜まれた]
(Bought)
In the watch list.
Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [空から降る一億の星]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Another tragic but gripping drama. Instead of being scared of Takuya's character I felt curious and mystified. There was a lot of good acting here though I felt that the cop character was overacting in some scenes. Of course who would not notice a more buff and sexy Takuya looking lethally gorgeous in tanks and cowboy boots! :-)
Sore wa, Totsuzen, Arashi no you ni... [それは、突然、嵐のように…]
(Watched)
Done. I was always at the edge of my seat waiting if Kozue will really runa way with Takuma. Reasonable ending.
Stand UP!!
(Watched)
Actually still watching. The first episode does not seem promising except for eye candy faces of Oguri Shun, Hiroki Narimiya and Yamapi.
Star no Koi [スタアの恋]
(Watched)
The first drama of Kusanagi Tsuyoshi that I finished and actually liked.
Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Sweet drama. Tackey looks cute here. The Abba soundtrack adds to my appreciation.
Suekko chounan ane san nin [末っ子長男姉三人]
(Watched)
My first Okada Junichi dorama! And I loved it. It was so darn funny. The sisters and the mother were casted very well. Koyuki is a chameleon. She is so cool here looking sporty and tomboyish. And I appreciated the looks of Junichi. Their chemistry onscreen is good. AND MOST OF ALL the cast did not overact to the point of cheesiness. Thank God! :-)
Summer snow
(Watched)
Good but a bit overrated. First time I've seen Dohmoto Tsuyoshi act. He has good comedic timing.
Suna No Utsuwa [砂の器]
(Bought)
In the watch list.
Taiyo no Kisetsu [太陽の季節]
(Watched)
A role that is very challenging for Tackey. Tatsuya is manipulative, weak and envious but he is very sexy and seductive. There were some draggy parts but I managed to stick until the end.
Taiyou no uta [タイヨのうた]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I was enjoying that it was not a push-over kind of tear-jerker. Did not realize that she's the same girl in One Liter of Tears. Oh well, I would love to see her in a comedy/love story plot for a change. And Yamada though cute as a button is someone I would love to see in a not so brooding role. Ooh and that producer guy is definitely gorgeous! :-)
Tatta Hitotsu no Koi [たったひとつの恋]
(Watched)
Nice love story. Although Kame is not the most beautiful guy in my eyes, I like the projects that he gets.
Tentai Kanzoku [天体観測]

Next in my watch list!
Tiger & Dragon [タイガー&ドラゴン]

On the watch list
Umizaru [海猿]
(Bought & Watched)
The movie was good. I discovered Hideaki Ito!
Wakamono no subete [若者のすべて]
(Watched)
Kimura was awesome in this dorama! First time I saw him as well nothing and yet you can feel his need to survive the cruelties of this world. I watched this raw and yet I understood what the drama wanted to say. A better vehicle for him at that time than Asunaro..
Water Boys [ウォーターボーイズ]
(Watched)
Funny! And the synchro choreography was really cool!
Yamato Nadeshiko [やまとなでしこ【大和撫子】]
(Watched)
Finally saw it after being just in my queu for so long. Surprisingly funny with a good supporting cast. I love the friends of Osuke here. Took me a while to get used to Tsutsumi-san doing a romantic comedy after my image of him as Captain Koda. :-)
Yan Papa [やんパパ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
After Mokudono I got curious about Nagase Tomoya. He is gorgeous in this series. Many touching moments but too bad his character did not have a lovelife by the time the series ended.
Yomigaeru kinro [蘇る金狼]
(Bought)
In the watch list.
Yoomigaeri [黄泉がえり]
(Bought)
In the watch list forever.
Yoshitsune [義経]
(Bought)
Same as Saiyuuki :-D
Yuuki [ユウキ]
(Watched)
hmmmm.....
Zettai Kareshi [絶対彼氏]
(Watched)
I enjoyed this drama! Did not expect that I would be touched by the bizarre love triangle. Mizushima Hiro has a distractingly pretty face but he acts well.
