1. Top drama it ain't [Rating: 6/10]
Yada Akiko brings her usual sweetness and signature hair style and lip gloss to form a perfect pair with Amami Yuki's tough reporter persona. But this winning duo is plagued by an over-excited crew, low-grade humor and shallow stories. 3 cheers for Amami plus 3 cheers for Yada make it a 6.

Amami Yuki always comes with a powerful presence on screen, and her knack for being a natural comedienne can be seen in this drama. Also, her irresistible charming personality is clearly registered on screen. The only 2 words to best describe her... "Simply AMAZING!"

Top Caster had a great but underutilised cast, and a script that seemed to lose focus along the way as it tried to balance news scoops with the relationship between newscaster Tsubaki and her assistant Nozomi. Yuki Amami and Shosuke Tanihara made a lovely pairing. They're so coolly business-like and professional towards everyone but when they're together they almost always end up losing their senses and bickering in a childish manner.

Sept 2006: Amami Yuki delivered a great performance as usual, as well as the chemistry between the cast, however, this drama can be very predictable at times, and unrealistic. The jokes sometimes were so lame and unnecessary. It's just another 'Bijo ka Yajuu' rip-off, with 'better' romance plot in it. Quite entertaining though, if you wanna watch some light comedy.

So far its pretty good. It feels a bit like Hero to me because each ep is another story just like how in Hero each ep has a different case invovled. Saddened to see that Akiko's role isn't as a big as I thought it would be and some of the other actors in here are just playing minor roles too. I think an 8 is as much as I'll give this one.

ahh, the stories inside weren't engaging enough. i only watched for amami yuki and yada akiko. tanihara shosuke was a nice surprise tho'. i thought he looked really dashing inside and his character's relationship with amami yuki's is the only reason why i watched till the very end.

Hilarious and funny! I like the drama's plot,showing the relationship between Amami Yuki dan Yada Akiko. Even though I quite disappointed with Yada Akiko's character. I think she deserves to have more attention and roles in the drama. Nonetheless,this drama is good!

mitai...with amami yuki, tamahi hiroshi, and tanihara shosuke, i like those three...uwaahhh...but there's no sub for this...i hope this get to be subbed...but i think it's because of the jargons...why are there jargons...

Thought it was going to be a serious story, but it turned out to be pretty light-hearted. The weekly stories are pretty entertaining. Amami Yuki is great in a comedic role as she was in a serious one like Maya sensei.

I had big expectations for this drama, and unfortunately, they aren't being fulfilled...but Amami Yuki is as entertaining as ever. I think the script and some casting should have been readjusted, however.

Watching... Not particularily fond of news casting dramas, but I love the cast so I just had to take a look at it... and it's not bad at all~ Hopefully it'll get better and not worse~

This drama was really good, a few of the episodes brought tears to my eyes. Some of the characters were kinda annoying, but I really liked the character played by Tanihara Shosuke.

Every now and then we got a show that's about news reporting/investigating. This one is not particularly different from the others. Average.
13. Comments by xxhiroxx [Rating: 8/10]
An interesting drama with a mix of news reporting and investigations, though falls short of expectation under comparison with Bijo ka Yajuu.

Amami Yuuki as a top caster. It was interesting, some of her quotes just hit me. Great drama by Amami once again!

Highest rating drama of the season?!
It was okay. As the story progresses, it gets better and better. Love it!

Would rate it higher if not for the crappy subs that went with it, will rank higher if I see a better version.
18. Comments by Smiley_18 [Rating: 6/10]
These kind of plot has been covered in older series, such as Beauty or Beast. Nothing special about this one.

I've always liked akiko yaida's acting. She has not failed me this time either. Nice dorama!

Don't bother wasting your time on this. Watch "News no Onna" instead.
