1. Interesting + funny = I loved it! [Rating: 10/10]
It's basicly a dorama about 4 women whos job is to become the voice of dead people and tell us how they died. Each episode deals with a different kind of situation for them to solve and they do this in interesting ways. 3 of the women play the role of forensic medical experts and 1 of the women play the role of a police officer. The relatioship between medicine and law is interesting see and learn about from the characters, as is their personal relationship with eachother too. Quite serious and funny at times, and also quite touching. I learned a lot of things about forensic medicine and dead people that I never knew befor that was interesting. Although i'm not crazy about medical type doramas, this one is a good dorama to watch if you haven't watched it befor.

2. One of the best of the year [Rating: 9/10]
Whereas the title character is too sweet, Kyoka certainly steals the show. It gives a more realistic view into unnatural causes of death. Certainly more realistic than Kori no Sekai, I'd say.

Watched it shortly after watching the Kasouken no Onna series. I liked it a little bit better because it felt a little more personal with all the characters. I liked most of the cases better too but the two series are still very similar and I'd recommend both. I especially liked the cop, Tsukiyama.

The first Jdorama I ever watched, waaay back on the International Channel. Good mix of characters, although the main one could be annoying at times. The cynical female cop was my favorite. An English-subbed version has been found again!

The cases are straight forward but the concepts are interesting. However, the decision to create stereotypical characters makes Kira Kira Hikaru all too predictable and disappointing as much as I like Eri Fukatsu and Yasuko Matsuyuki.

Given the cast, pretty disappointing. The only thing that kept me watching was to see how the subplot between Suzuki and Shinohara played out, and you could see that the first ten minutes of episode 9.
