You can just check my profile for my opinion of any dramas I've seen. If it isn't there then I haven't seen it. By an amazing coincidence, the less I like a drama, the greater the sarcasm. Bleah

I recommend "Iryu" - the story and plot are totally different, but the main actor thought in the same unique way (http://jdorama.com/drama.1011.htm) -- This drama came with 3 seasons.

Another recommendation might be "Priceless" (http://jdorama.com/drama.1772.htm) (the main actor is the same with Mr. Brain), this drama designed to be marinated with human feelings Mr Green
Watchout!! don't get irritated by this rofl Naughty

I just finished watching "Kekkon Dekinai Otoko" and I absolutely loved it. In fact I'm rewatching again tonight. The acting, dry humor, banter and general story were all top notch. I actually saw a bit of myself in Kuwano. Abe Hiroshi was fantastic in this role. I wish there was a second season. I'm going to go out and buy " Still Walking" simply beacuse Hiroshi Abe and Yui Natsukawa are both in it. My question is, are there any similar J Dramas out there like "Kekkon Dekinai Otoko" ? I just recently got into J Dramas because a friend recomended "Rich Man, Poor Woman". I loved that, but not as much as I did "Kekkon Dekinai Otaoko". Any recommendations that you guys can give would be great. Fingers crossed

We have a "Kekkon Dekinai" thread here: http://www.jdorama.com/viewpost.898387.htm#898387

I dunno if they discuss any similar dramas, but "Still Walking" is not anything at all like "Kekkon Dekinai". It's pretty slow paced and has to do with a family dealing with the death of a son (Abe's brother) and Yui plays Abe's new wife with a son from a previous marriage. It's her first time meeting her in-laws. It's an excellent film, just not on the same lines as "Kekkon Dekinai".

If you're looking for another hilarious drama that Abe is in, check out "Dekichatta Kekkon": http://www.jdorama.com/drama.567.htm.

None of the rest of the cast of "Kekkon Dekinai" is in it, but most that have seen it really liked it.

Moteki was pretty good!
On the relationship/love side I can think of Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi and Love Shuffle and since Nagase appeared in some dramas scripted by Kudo Kankuro you could check out Ryusei no Kizuna, Manhattan Love Story and Kisarazu Cat's Eye.

Heyho! Dancing
Once again I have an urge to watch something. Haven't been watching anything since 2010 and I was wondering if there's any new must-see dramas!
I absolutely loved Unfair so something similar would be awesome, though I love to watch anything from romance to horror, so anything will do! Naughty

^ If you haven't seen anything since 2010, then from 2011 watch

'Soredemo Ikite Yuku': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1646.htm
(pretty intense, but if after watching this you're not a fan of Hikari Mitsushima, check your vital signs.)

and

'Kaseifu no Mita': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1678.htm

(that one might take some getting used to, Nanako is pretty strange but once you find out why she's the way she is it starts to make sense. Also, the father character is a real pain in the neck.)

From 2012:

'Strawberry Night': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1706.htm
(but try and watch the special first)

and

'Osozaki no Himawari': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1773.htm

If you're looking for something light, try 'Marumo no Okite': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1629.htm

2 kids and a talking dog. Really!

or

'Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi: http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1716.htm

'Keizoku 2' is a sequel, the original was 'Keizoku':http://www.jdorama.com/drama.185.htm
Although the first one was in 1991 with a completely different cast.

'Liar Game' - 'Liar Game 2': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1457.htm

'Ouiz Show' - 'Quiz Show 2': http://www.jdorama.com/drama.1409.htm

If you liked 'Jikou Keisatsu' you might want to try 'Atami no Sousakan': http://jdorama.com/drama_1538.htm

Similar in feel and a lot of the same cast, but it's even weirder. Crazy
