1. Pretty Good! [Rating: 8/10]
Not exactly the best dorama in the world but great nontheless. I believe this is the first dorama Tomosaka Rie has been where she is the main character. It also stars a then unknown Fukada Kyoko. This dorama is not for the romantics but if you like action and stories about the power of friendship, this is for you. But for you sentimetal people, the story gets to crying stage at the end of the series. Plus the dialogue and situations that the five girls get into is funny at times. Plus, it's interesting to see exactly how the girls get their missions done. Another bonus, I think, is that the ending is not fairy tale like as other doramas. It has action, sad moments, and funny moments. It's a well rounded drama with something for everyone.

2. I like ^_~ [Rating: 9/10]
I liked it. Honto DAISUKI na. It was pretty good. I liked the plot and twist and turns the characters had to go through with. The ending was so good. I cried when i saw it. It shows true friends ship and the ups and downs you have to go through the tirals of it. No matter what true friends will stick together. This was basically the meaning to me the dorama showed. My fav characters has to be Tomoe's. hyper and childish. but hey i am still a child ^_~. THe action is pretty good and I like how the girls acted out their characters in sincere ways. Plus their were pretty cute guys in it. One final saying on this. GIRLS KICK BUTT! ^_~ Ja ne!

Wow, there was pretty much total incompetence at all levels in the production of this. Maybe the stupid, annoying direction/cinematography was used in hopes no one would notice the writing was so horrible. The "plot" is disjointed, inconsistent and really makes no sense. The script has absolutely no respect for any of the characters, they're just stick figures to be moved around and spew idiotic dialogue. I guess the actors are to be forgiven for their performances. It's hard to imagine anyone able to make the words in the script believable.

4. Slick, thrilling, and dumb [Rating: 3/10]
FIVE is kind of like Subekan Deka in concept, but without the humor. This sliick drama is jammed with energy, and even has a few twists; the girls look great - especially sultry Saraina Suzuki. The fights and stunts are arresting, though the story doesn't make much sense. Tomoe Shinohara, as usual, is annoying. Despite sections with nice energy, annoying plot holes gradually expand like Swiss cheese - and then the drama becomes too much of a downer for my tastes. FIVE has a lot of potential, but squanders much of it along the way.

Pretty good mindless spy drama, featuring five escaped female prisoners now doing secretive spy stuff for a Private Investigator/Bounty Hunter. The Bounty Hunter is the boss, and he sends the otherwise innocent looking girls out to do his dirty work. This took Food Fight's time slot on my local station and I don't like it as much, but it's certainly watchable. "Five" doesn't seem to be a very popular show, but I thought it was pretty fun.

While the story tends to get slightly repetitive and inconsitent in some parts (even if they try to say otherwise), the good cast of Shinohara Tomoe, Suzuki Sarina, Tomosaka Rie, Endo Kumiko and Chinen Rina kept it slightly interesting to watch. The charaxcters didn't have much dept or anything, nor was it awesome acting, but it was 'interesting'. Worth the watch if you have time on your hands.

Worst drama ever. The drama has been shot to look cool I guess, but it just doesn't work. Every shot last about 2 seconds and the camera is always shaking. Enough to make you sick. :bleh: Note to producer: Don't hire a cameraman with parkinson that drinks 20 coffees a day or a drunk one. You can also learn how to use a steady cam. :vomit:

It seems interesting at first, but thanks to Kayo being so annoying, I ended up being annoyed with the whole series. I just don't get their missions as well and also the end part...

I like the James Bond / Mission Impossible / La Femme Nikita themes they incorporated in this drama. Story was a little too complex for me to understand.
