1. Quite a shallow drama [Rating: 6/10]
The first two episodes of this drama are pretty funny. However, it's all downhill from there. Although the first half to three-quarters of the series is watchable, it never lives up to the first two episodes and turns from a comedy into a shallow drama. The last few episodes revolves around the characters trying to give touching summaries of the others. However, it doesn't work because the characters never really click and don't really share any emotion throughout the story. Even after ten episodes I couldn't remember the names of the characters, as they didn't make me care about them at all. The only one who was pretty good was the character Tomu (Morisaki Win), who also shows off his singing a couple of times. I guess this drama would be enjoyable for fans of Morisaki, especially female fans. I was also disappointed in Tanihara Shosuke's role, which didn't allow him to express any emotion whatsoever.

The gay and lesbian theme throughout the drama was also quite disturbing.

I also found too that the characters changed too easily. Not really satisfying or believable.

2. 7 is probably too much [Rating: 7/10]
Yet another school drama with another wacky twist...character and plot developments are not that great. Probably being a bit generous by giving this a 7/10...

I wasn't impressed after the first episode. It took me over a year to come back to this show. And surprisingly I enjoyed it quite a lot. It contains a lot of common sense lessons about love. Something we should be reminded often, because it's so easy to lose common sense due to heavy emotions.

Contains great advices for teenagers. Something that everyone probably knows already but served with compelling examples why and how it works.

Of course if you were looking for a teary romance, you will be disappointed.

Kyoko Fukada as a teacher who wants to form a social dance club in a girl school. 5 male students enrolled into the school and are paired with 5 female students joined the club. It is nice as those students are all pretty new actor/actresses and seeing how they did, it is pretty promising. Touched some issues on boy-girl relationships which is never taught in school.

SO SO SO FUNNY! I laughed really hard watching this dramas. Oh, such a good series about high school students and their hilarious problems. You should give it a try if you like school comedy dramas. Also, if you're a fan of Fukada, Tanihara, Maeda, Naka, Kato, Nakamura and others.

Creative plotlines like this point to the genius of Japanese scriptwriters. I love the humor of it all. I'm just sorry the romance between the first couple didn't develop. The teacher character was annoying. That actress has been typecast as a dumb blonde.

Could not get into this to save my life. Didn't even make it past episode two. Blerg. Mai-chan is adorable (I can't recall the name of the actress who plays her, but I always like her), but even she isn't enough to make me want to watch more of this.

To me Fukada Kyoko's acting isn't that good. The story could be better without her.... Besides that, the storyline is humorous but kind of messed up with protagonist being a homosexual.

Very sweet drama, definitely hilarious and a lot of fun from beginning to end. The only thing they could have done is taken out all the really lame Disney movie references. x_x

Not spectacular or anything but will hold you over. They tackle many issues with teens but the story could use a touch up and the actors/ actresses could have been better.

A dance club with dance partners in a high school that has just started accepting male students. It has lots of little couples which is cute.

The story is so-so, but this movie has a lot of funny scenes. It's worth to watch if you're looking for comedy series.

Very cute and funny drama. I enjoyed every episode, but I could have done without the annoying Disney references.

Another school drama - bit different than the usual but again, lacks anything really original or captivating.
