While working in the leisurely atmosphere at a food company's factory, Futaro is asked to return to their corporate headquarters by his good friend. Unfortunately, he finds himself assistant to Izumi, a highly demanding expert on Italian food culture. Futaro gets off to a rocky start with his new female boss, and always seems to be saying or doing the wrong thing. He also doesn't seem to be particularly suited to his new position on the Italian Restaurant Project, considering he doesn't even like tomatoes! But Futaro may still have a few tricks left up his sleeve that he can use to win over Izumi and find success in his new job.

1. Definitely a fav of mine! [Rating: 8/10]
Nanisama! is another one of those very enjoyable dramas that builds up a great balance between its main plotline and the various side stories. The script was pretty well written and a strong cast led to some great moments (and surprising ones too). Overall, I'd definitely recommend this drama for its simple and light-hearted tone.

2. One of my favorite doramas ever [Rating: 9/10]
When I started watching Nanisama! I had EXTREMELY low expectations. There are so many cliches in most Japanese office-romance doramas that I figured Nanisama would be no different. Some of those cliches do exist, but the writers and actors present those conventions in a completely original and often hilarious way.

Probably 7.5 for me. Light-hearted, enjoyable time-filler. I like the first half of this series quite a lot, particularly the connections between the characters. The second half, felt a bit strung out, and the work aspect wasn't done very well. I didn't find the character of Futaro (played by Kishitani Goro) particularly likeable, but I like Akira (Watabe Atsuro). Matsuyuki Yasuko as the career woman/single mother was very good I thought, and I also like Takeuchi Yuko and Uchiyama Rina in their small roles. This is quite an enjoyable series overall.

Another strong jdorama of the same calibre as News no Onna. Good pacing and a great all-round cast make watching this a truly enjoyable experience! I must say though, this drama is pretty packed with stars (almost as many as Lunch Queen!), not that I mind :)

Didn't expect much of this drama before watching it, but it turned out to be quite good. Especially the first half was really funny & the cast was surprisingly strong. It's a good drama.

A very funny office comedy. I didn't care too much for the female lead (she grated on me after awhile) but the rest of the cast was fantastic. Well-written, kept me hooked the entire time.

A very well made drama. I'm surprised more people haven't watched it. It has good pacing, and the actors did a great job. I give it a 9/10. The actor who played Morricone is so cute ^^

The first few episodes are hilariously funny. It becomes quite predictable towards the end. But overall it's pretty good.

Not much of a strong love story, but it had a lot of funny, unforgettable moments. Kishitani Goro was good in this one.

Funny. It's different from my usual choice of drama, but that's alright. This drama is really pretty good.

Simple, light-hearted drama. Takes awhile to get into it (have to watch beyond 1st episode.)

A funny and charming little romantic comedy. I love Ryosuke's thick neck. "Arigatou."

Jan 2005: Just an average drama, but fun to watch, with a really nice cast.

One of those series where the tough girl falls for the bullied guy. Very nice story, and Matsuyuki Yasuko is really really pretty in this series. ^_^
2. Gao
A drama about Futaro and Izumi, who at first don't like each other but fall in love.
