shozen's artiste votes (9)
Abe Hiroshi [阿部寛]
this actor is very diverse yet he is cool no matter what role he plays. you rock dude! btw, i dont know if anyone will agree, but this guy seem like he can play Zenigata from Lupin the 3rd. after seeing him play Ueda Jiro and Mineshima, put em together and thats Zenigata. abe-san saikou!
Ayase Haruka [綾瀬はるか]
great actress, was stunning in sekai no chuushin.
Kuninaka Ryoko [国仲涼子]
i thing she is an adorable actress, you cant help but smile when you see her.
Nakama Yukie [仲間由紀恵]
one of my three most favorite actress ever. she is so cute in every show. no reason why i cant like her. she is just beautiful. too beautiful. nakama yukie san utsukushi sugiruyon!
Nishikido Ryo [錦戸亮]
good actor out of all the johnny's junior guys out there right now.
Shaku Yumiko [釈由美子]
has anyone voted for her yet? she is great. my first favorite idol of all time. i never was fetish of idol until i saw shaku. she is beautiful, and a great action actress. i think she is one of the best idol actress that does action. besides ueto aya.
Tsumabuki Satoshi [妻夫木聡]
great actor! cool guy.
Ueto Aya [上戸彩]
she is huge right now. which is unbelievable. well i can believe it. her smile is just a killer. she has commercials and she has a new single, movie, and an album coming up. she is stunningly beautiful!
Yamada Takayuki [山田孝之]
he is a good actor. seen him grow from churasan to like water boys, and then sekai no chuushin. also is pretty good in H2.

Ace wo Nerae! [エースをねらえ!]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
i read the manga after i saw this show. im surprised they did a special for this too. actually it was good they did. the drama seemed to have jumped to conclusions. its hard to relate the manga to the drama.

This is ok. I wasnt so hooked to it but surprised i watched it all the way through. Must be because i like Nakama Yukie alot.
Friends [フレンズ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
i like how they tied up the boundaries of two cultures, even if they are neighbors. i liked won bin as an actor. and fukada kyoko was pretty good. but always the same character though. but this was good.
Fufudo [夫婦道]

enjoyed it a lot. nakama yukie had a similar character like yamada in trick. also a bit like gto and kinpachi. i laughed a lot.
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
i dont know, but i like the first one a lot better. maybe its too much pattern going on. but its still good. nakama yukie's performance amazes me to how she can act stupid and act elegant depending on her roles. it shows how much versatility she has.

The main actress was cute. I couldnt watch it all the way through, kind of too childish and her character was a little too annoying. Ive seen her do better roles and this definetely wasnt a good one.

i little cheesy seeing kimutaku saying " maybe" all the time. it seemed this show was made just for him. but to a certain extent, a hocky drama dealing with relationships is interesting. and this is a first too.

Currently watching this. Been seeing Yamashita Tomohisas drama consistently, same with Nagasawa Masami. Took me awhile to realize its the second time they worked together. Since Dragonzakura.
Sailor Fuku to Kikanju [セーラー服と機関銃]

Nagasawa Masami was pretty good. I love the ending. How the characters ended up was so 80s. Also was good that the show was short.

Trick [トリック]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)

3 nen B gumi Kinpachi Sensei 6 [3年B組金八先生]
kandou to namida [Rating: 10/10]
this was my first kinpachi show. i watched series 5 after this actually. currently watching series 7. ueto aya was great. i also liked this too since it is shot near my town. kita-senju is like three four stations away from where i live so. after watching this made me visit the dote shot in the show. it is a great place. its just weird going to the actual location of the place. besides that, takeda tetsuya is a great actor. so is ueto aya. kono bakachin ga!
At Home Dad [アットホーム・ダッド]
abe hiroshi ga kaji, hahaha! [Rating: ?/10]
ive seen him in my little chef first. then this. it was a big transition to see him do housechores in is y-shatsu. but it was fun to watch. the music was great. actors and actresses were great. it will be interesting to see this continued actually. it woudlnt be that bad. fayrays music in this was awesome. very touching.
Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]
attack no.1 [Rating: 6/10]
so far its something about sports manga becoming a drama. i guess its hard to translate manga humor and drama into realistic drama. in away not bad. i have seen some of the animation of reruns. which im wondering how close the drama is to the animation. but aya looks good as always, see slimed down alot though. but still hot.
Densha Otoko [電車男]
imaichi [Rating: 6/10]
somewhat cheesy. gotta see the movie and read the novel.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
decent [Rating: 4/10]
abe hiroshi is ok. ending was disappointing.
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]
great show [Rating: ?/10]
big reason i saw this was ueto aya. i liked her character a lot. plus i never knew this was a remake. i liked the soundtrack to it a lot. such a sappy music and show. i nearly cried on this. seriously.
My Little Chef
charming and fun [Rating: ?/10]
i watched this because of abe hiroshi and none other than ueto aya. i liked it. im a sucker for cooking tv dramasa or mangas. plus i liked the whole french restaurant thing as well. it was fun to see aya acting silly and abe hiroshi acting kind of cool for a change. funny cuz im rewatching this right now. just rented it over the summer at tsutaya.
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
good show, kandou shita. [Rating: 10/10]
one of my all time fave now. yet to get on dvd!
Sky High [スカイハイ]
good show [Rating: ?/10]
very interesting. the first season was great. i was hooked. shaku did a great acting playing izuko. i think she is good when it comes to emotionless characters. plus the soundtrack was moving as well.
Skyhigh 2 [スカイハイ2]
season 2 was good too [Rating: ?/10]
again like the first one. similar set up. but pushed the envelope further. it was interesting to see that the movie kind of glues part one and two. this is another one of my favorite shows.
Stand UP!!
so manga [Rating: ?/10]
i just could not stop laughing at the shot. i know its full of these johnny's junior dudes in this show. but there facial expressions and the ridiculous shots were just funny. shaku played a hot sexy teacher too, which was great. ninomiya just cracks me up.
Toubousha [逃亡者]
greatest show ever! [Rating: ?/10]
first of all eguchi yosuke and abe hiroshi rocks. they both had good chemistry. i know its so based on The Fugitive tv series or even the movie. but i liked the whole idea of mixed messages and confusing us with who the killer is. i like the soundtrack most of all. with the whole orchestra thing. its great. i think im gonna get this on dvd actually. plus i just ordered the soundtrack as well.
Trick [トリック]
watching it now [Rating: ?/10]
im still on the pilot but im laughing a lot already. first is abe hiroshi's character. his looks crack me up a lot. he looks so goofy. normally he has this cool look. but in this he looks like a toriyama akira character or something. im looking forward to this show...
