It seems like it did very well based on other ppl's opinions on Jin.


JIN is on mysoju.com and dramacrazy.net

I finally finshed Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu that some holidays in France and Italy interrupted (I should have never come back to my everyday crap, but as no handsome italian decided to kidnap me and install me in a lovely sunny place...here I am). Anyway I think it was alright, great story, but a bit disappointing, I don't know, maybe because of the cast?
I may watch Byakuyakou I haven't watched this genre so far.

Did it get good rating? The best in its season and for the whole year! Season 2's rating is even better too.

Unjustified, IMO.

Nearly finished First Kiss. It's enjoyable but somewhat forgettable. Inoue Mao looked great with in summery outfits and all those hairstyles. She was good, but I had high expectations and thought at times, she was acting for the individual scenes rather for the drama as a whole, so a little disappointed in that regard.

Started Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite. I fell asleep during the first episode and when my brother mentioned that he thought it was boring when he had watched it, the review stuck.

Now I'm finding it hard to get back into. At least it's only six episodes long. And perhaps I'm just being unfair to adopt my brother's opinion before even starting on the second episode.

I'll watch it now.

YATTA! I LUFF Trick!

Okay, so I just finished watching Juunen Saki mo Kimi ni Koishite. I didn't fall asleep, even though it's nearly 2:00am, and I think it's because the drama had some merit. The two main leads had no chemistry, and the plot is ridiculous, so I'm not sure at this moment what the merit is. But it was okay while it lasted. What to move on to next...

Started watching "Nagareboshi". ILm on Episode 3. ItLs quite interesting so far. Okay, Ueto Aja probably wonLt become one of my favourite actresses, but i really like the character that Takenouchi Yukata plays. He is the main (maybe the only) reason why i like this series. LetLs see how this will work out. - All of you have nice weekend. I will be watching my series and the constant rain outside. What a summer !!! Grumble

Started the first two episodes of Love Generation. I know, I'm slow to the party, but I didn't quite like it the first time I tried this drama years back, and watching it again, I understood why I didn't. Am I supposed to get behind Matsu Takako's Riko? Cuz she's pretty damn annoying right now. Boohoo that she got dumped, but given how she turned out so far, it's totally understandable.

The other female lead, Sanae (Teppei's ex), isn't any better, exactly the kind of spineless chick I can't stand.

I couldn't recognise Uchino Masaaki as the elder brother, what a difference the years and lotsa hair (in JIN) made! The music was good though.

Finished these Spring dramas:

Legal High
Enjoyed this one the most. Sakai Masato WAS the show, he was brilliant.

Cleopatra na Onnatachi
One of the ones that was cut short, but I liked this one too. Sato Ryuta, Inamori Izumi and Ayano Go were all very good.

37-sai de Isha ni Natta Boku
Watched this because the subbing was completed. Another medical drama with an idealistic doctor. Mediocre at best.

After I finished Byakuyakou (which was great) I decided to change the style completely and I'm watching Wagaya no Rekishi. One episode seen o far, it was nice. There are only three so i should finish it quickly.

Watched the first two episodes of "Beautiful Rain": http://jdorama.com/drama.1755.htm

From the synopsis, I don't think anything really surprising is going to happen, but it's got Mana Ashida and right now in the J-Ent world, having Mana Ashida in anything is almost like having a license to print money. But once again, she is very good! I'm beginning to think she's a 30 year old actress trapped in the body of an 8 year old girl.

Etsushi Toyokawa plays her father and Miki Nakatani is the girl next door (we should all be so lucky!!) it should be interesting.

Early episodes of most of the new summer dramas are unexpectingly good! Beautiful Rain and Iki mo Dekinai Natsu of course, but also Ghost Mama, GTO, and even Boys on the Run.

I agree with you , I don't like medical dramas with hero doctors , there is nothing like that in the real life ! and I don't like dramas about perverted doctors too

the best medical drama I have ever seen was [ Say hello to black jack ]

[Dr. Koto's Clinic] is second to it , but the lead actor was really annoying , but it is well-written

I liked it a lot as well! I though Taizo Harada and Yoko Maki were great! Applaud

Their treatment of American G.I.s was a little heavy handed. I don't think every American stationed in Okinawa is a rapist or a maniac Jeep driver running over little kids, but aside from that, it was very good.

Currently watching Churasan again with my sister. It's turned into our tradition now to watch it every summer. I think this is our third year doing it. Beaten

At the same time I think I'll start Dare Yori mo Mama wo Aisu. Not for any particular reason except it was next in my binder of dramas. I don't know much about it but seems fun.
