1. Eraidesune! [Rating: 7/10]
A pretty touching drama. It inspires one to fulfill the good ambition(s) you have in life no matter what obstacles you may encounter.

Joshinana has those attributes, with a mixture of highly emotional stage directions (especially the protogonist) and a bit of comedy as well. However, for those drama purists, it doesn't involve any romantic relationships though. But otherwise, Joshiana maintains its dramatic compositions.

Like everyone has said, it's worth watching Joshiana. Not only it implies people to reach their dreams, it also shows that sometimes your enemy could also be your friend. ^_^

The story line for this drama is overall touching and soothing. I like the characters as they all starred well and brought forth the attitudes of the respective characters successfully.
I would say that it is a drama not to be miss due to its meaningful themes revealed to the audience, showing the parallel between success and determination.

3. Amazing! [Rating: 9/10]
I watched this drama several times because of Mizuno and Hideaki. I think their love story is beautiful. I hoped they stayed closer, though.I cried a lot with every episode and the lessons they teach about newsreporting. I like this drama a lot!

4. lighter fare but still enjoyable [Rating: 8/10]
I am more of a fan of MIKI MIZUNO. The drama tries to touch on some of the problems women have working in the news environment. I had just finished SHIROI KAGE which is pretty serious so I enjoyed this being not so serious.

It's funny and very touching drama. It shows behind the scenes of the emotions of japanese reporters and the presentations of current affairs. Here's a drama for people who's looking for something different to watch.

Not a bad show. Rie Tomosaka's best is still the 16 year old bride. Miki Mizuno's character is a bit too much! For News Room story, Channel 2 is better.
