|Dekichatta Kekkon [できちゃった結婚]|
Worth Watching [Rating: 7/10]
Dekichatta Kekkon was funny and worth watching. The scene when Takenouchi supposedly proposed to Hirosue was hillarious.
|Hatachi no kekkon [２０歳の結婚]|
Quite Enjoyable [Rating: 8/10]
Okay, I admit it. I enjoyed Hatachi no Kekkon primarily because I like watching Yuka. The story line was good - lighthearted and comical. I recommend this dorama.
|Long vacation [ロングバケーション]|
Don't miss it [Rating: 10/10]
If you're going to watch just one J Drama, you gotta watch Long Vacation. This has to be one of the best dramas ever produced. Fabulous story line and the characters were greatly portrayed by an all star cast. I especially enjoyed Inamori's character. She was hilarious. Trust me, go rent this one!!
|Love and peace [ラブアンドピース]|
Worth watching [Rating: 8/10]
Show was quite funny. Story line was almost manga like. Catchy theme song by Tokio which of course Matsuoka is a drummer for.
|Love complex [ラブコンプレックス]|
Strangest thing I've ever seen [Rating: 5/10]
What drug was the writer on when the story was written? Whoa, this was one weird drama. It was like One Flew over a Cuckoo's Nest except the characters were wearing designer's clothing and not straight jackets.
|Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]|
Gotta Watch [Rating: 9/10]
This is #2 on my all time list behing LV. Every episode was fast moving and entertaining. My favorite scene was the morning after Kimura and Matsu did the - you know what - and Matsu's character Riko started writing on Kimura's character Teppei's refrigerator and started writing "Teppei su---" and Teppei thought Riko was writing "Teppei suki" only to find that she wrote "Teppei sukebe." I couldn't stop laughing. Great theme song too.
|Mama chari deka (keiji) [ママチャリ刑事！]|
Barrell of laughs [Rating: 9/10]
This has to be one of the funniest doramas I have seen. My stomach still hurts from all the laughing. If you like to laugh, go watch Mama chari deka.
|Mukashi no otoko [昔の男]|
Not highly recommended [Rating: 4/10]
If you like love triangles and enjoyed Kinyoubi no Koibito, you may like Mukashi no Otoko. I didn't. I did like the part when Arashi and Akari broke up (one of many times) and symbolized their split by deleting each other's names from the cell phones. Very 21st Century.
Pretty Good [Rating: 8/10]
This is probably a sequel to Oyajii, which also starred Tamura Masakazu and Hirosue Ryoko. Otousan was less light-hearted but was equally entertaining. How can you not like a drama with Iijima Naoko, Nakatani Miki, Hirosue Ryoko and Fukada Kyoko. I highly recommend this one.
|Perfect love [パーフェクトラブ！]|
Definitely Worth Watching [Rating: 8/10]
This was a fun dorama. Fukuyama and Kimura made a nice pair. Hatano Hiroko did a nice job in this. She's cute. She comes out in a few dramas with Kimura Yoshino. Yusuke Santamaria always makes me laugh. Maybe it's his silly name? Kinpachi Sensei's Takeda Testuya did a good job as Fukuyama's father. Takeda always has a Kyushu-ben doesn't he? Good theme song by Glay and the Matsumoto Eiko version of Fukuyama's song Squall was pretty nice. I think I like Matsumoto's version than Fukuyama's original.
|Rennai Kekkon no Hosoku [恋愛結婚の法則]|
Very funny [Rating: 8/10]
This is a really good comedy. I always liked Kyon Kyon but Yanagiba was hillarious. He normally plays a cold heartless character like in Bus Stop and Ashita ga aru. But in this, he played a goofy country bumpkin out to win Kyon Kyon's heart. Go watch this, it's worth it.
