gopro's drama votes (2)
Gal Cir [ギャルサ]
At first by the looks of the 1st episode I thought this was going to be a craptasically fiasco like Ganbatte Ikimasshoi, but with each occuring episode it got better and better. It shows how humans arent appreciative of any of the basic neccessaties of life and are likely to ignore all basic principles. That is why I like this show. 8.5 for this show. Whenever the "Cowboy" would speak it would be soooo easy to understand, but when the "Gals" spoke It was a bit more difficult for me.
Kekkon Dekinai Otoko [結婚できない男]
Brilliance at its best.

Abe Hiroshi [阿部寛]
Brilliant actor. Funny and quirky. "YOU!!!"
Matsumoto Jun [松本潤]
One of the better actors Ive seen in any country. Did a total chear switch in Kimi wa Petto to Hana Yori Dango. Guy is talented. One of the best.
Namase Katsuhisa [生瀬勝久]
Would love to have tgus person as a father. Very interesting funny guy. Good actor also.
Yamada Takayuki [山田孝之]
Watched him in H2 and Sekai no Chuushin. Excellent acting period.

Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Rating: 9/10
Pretty good, It is actually a happy story. I didnt feel compassion (suffer with) for the 2 chars. Really good happy story. Reccommend (Early Winter 07)
Bloody Monday [ブラッディ・マンデイ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Not half bad. Reminded me of a non-asian show. Could get a little ridiculous at times but other than that it was enjoyable- Recommend (Watched Mid Fall 09)
Boku dake no Madonna [僕だけのマドンナ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
8.5 drama. pretty good drama except I hate woman like the female lead. always encounter those. irritating. Takizawa was much much better in Taiyou no Kisestu. (Summer 06)
Boku no Aruku Michi [僕の歩く道]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Probably one of the best I have watched. It shows a variety of things in this show. First about the boy trying super hard in school and the mom not caring, getting a promotion in a society, and the main point in the show about a disability. Very Cute, Very innocent show, Very true show. I reccommend this highly. (2007)
Chakushin Ari [着信あり]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
More mystery than anything. I thought this was perty good show amazingly. Ending was a little odd but good in some ways. I would reccommend if the person is a mystery genere person. Good show. (Winter 07)
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Not bad. I thought this was Kimura's most boring role. This show tried to become too Western or American with how Taku would act. Especially the last episode. SKIP 20 MIN! (Watched Mid Fall 09)
Densha Otoko [電車男]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Ok when I saw the 1st episode I stopped watching this show for about 3 months, I kinda hated this show but I gave it another chance and I was glad I did. Very good show. must watch. Im sure that these things do happen quite often. (watch 1st ep Winter 06, then gave another chance Late Spring 06)
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
This show is about a 7.5ishness its better than N's Aoi and Kuitan but this is sorta lame and cheesy though I wish my school could have done this a few years ago (Special Class to get into Todai). Somewhat entertaining, couple chars were irritating. Abe Hiroshi is pretty good actor I wanna see more dramas with him in it. (Fall 06)
Engine [エンジン]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Very good drama until the last few minutes of the show. Because of the ending Im dropping this from a 9.5 to a 9. I HATE endings like those. So irritating. Overall excellent drama, must watch. Actor is excellent. (Late Fall 06)
Gal Cir [ギャルサ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I liked this show. They needed to dance more. Each plot is understandable to a 5 year old but it shows what the human nature is and how we abuse it. Good drama, simple plots. (Fall 06)
Galileo [ガリレオ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Its about an 8 or a little over. The 1st ep is the best outta the 10 and the most interesting also. I love the professors quirks- theyre brilliant. He reminds me of Detective Conan with his awesome one-liner��. ���‚ɂ������낢�@And fromDetective�@Conan- ���񂶂‚͂��‚��ЂƂI�I I recommend this drama�B(Watched Spring 09)
Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
This is probably the worst of all the dramas Ive watched. Very very slow drama, nothing at all happens until the 8th episode. Very girly show. Irritating chars, only Dakko is good(HAWT). I think in Epsisode 2 or 3 the main char acts very good in one of the scenes. I mean it looked like she was gonna explosde. A good thing about this show is that if youre learning Japanese watch this drama w/out subs. Its actually quite easier to understand than other dramas. (Summer 06)
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
8.5ish. Pretty good show, somewhat hesitated to watch this show since its a lame corny plot, but it is worthwhile. people should watch. (Spring 07)
Gonzo - Densetsu no Keiji [ゴンゾウ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
8.5ish- I was not expected the first episode to turn out that way at all. I immediately had to watch the following episode. This drama was filled with watching more than my usual one episode per day. I watched about 2-3 per day. Pretty good show. The perpetrator was quite simple to see. I liked how the story spanned out. Recommend Highly! (Watched Late Fall 09) PS- 50th Drama!! Yay!
H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Very good show, this show has my 2 fav people in it. Yamada Takayuki, and Ishihara Satomi. Satomi's char is somewhat irritating in the beginning but I guess she "matures" later on in the episodes so she gets all good afterall they are in highschool 10th grade. I tend to like these Romace dramas, very enteratining for some reason. (Spring 06)
Hachimitsu to Kuroba [ハチミツとクローバー]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
This is about 6.5ish- I watched this being a fan of the anime and I must say that this is a big letdown. Certain moments were too slow and some were too fast. The addition of Ryoma-Sama was great. I recommend others to watch the anime instead or read the manga. (Watched Spring 08)
Haikei, Chichiue-sama [拝啓、父上様]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Very good drama showing the old and new japan. Also shows how a young man training at a traditional "house" and his various problems that plague him and people. This was one of the only dramas, or movies for that fact that I was so attached to the characters. I postponed watching this for about 5 months due to me being in Korea. (Fin Sun, Apr 20, 2008. Only drama to watch in 8 months)
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Matsumoto Jun is so cool in this drama, watched him in Kimi wa Petto and wow totally opposite chars. Pretty good actor amazingly. Should do more dramas. Anyways its a very good show IMO, quite funny also. (Spring 06)
Hana Yori Dango Season 2 [花より男子]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Typical love triangle. Thought it couldve been better otherwise entertaining nonetheless. (Spring 08)
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
2nd drama that deserved a 10 rating. Great drama with awesome cases. Wish it continued with another series and not a movie but what can one do... Must Watch! (Watched Spring 09)
Houkago [下課後]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
About an 8.5. Very neat show. I like how the Society pictured the Maintenance people, morons. Also the culture change is very nice to pick out. But this comedy and slice of romance in 5 episodes is great. I think the Dramas need only 5 episodes compared to the average of 11. People should watch. Also Ishida Issei is great at the potrayal of a girl, OMG! He acts super good as a fag. Watch this people! (Spring 07)
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the better shows ive watched, but not as good as Sekai no Chuushin de. I didnt cry once during this show. Very sad though. And K is the best male singer ever. (Spring 06)
Iryu [医龍 Team Medical Dragon]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
About 8.75. Much Much better than N's Aoi. Million times better. Much more depth. All these shows have genius' in them. Now all they need is a Yakitate Japan drama. (Winter 06)
Iryu Season 2 [医龍 2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
A little over an 8 but not better than the 1st season due to it being almost the same plot. If youve seen the 1st then watch this. U will like this. Winter 07
Juken no Kamisama [受験の神様]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Watched it becuz of Narumi and I thought I would be able to improve my Japanese listening but I was awfully wrong due to the fact they talk about a lot of school stuff which I dont know the vocabulary. Overall this drama was decent if anything. I hated Narumi's Char- So irritating and the story shouldve developed a little bit earlier- maybe 2-3 eps earlier. (Watched Spring 2008)
Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Very good show. Very touching, though not as touching as Sekai no Chuushin de or 1 liter of, it is still very sad and true. Its called Abstinen ce peoples!! Main actor is excellent, he knows 5 languages!!! Need to watch more shows with him, Japanese or not. (Summer 06)
Kekkon Dekinai Otoko [結婚できない男]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the better dramas. Quite funny, also very sad (pitiful way) at the same time. Good show, must watch. (Late Spring 07)
Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Actually not bad, kinda lame though IMO. Quite entertaining none the less. Lady finds guy, guy becomes pet etc. (Summer 06)
Kisarazu Cat's Eye [木更津キャッツアイ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Alrighty- This drama rides on a lot of japanese culture and whatnot and its hard to understand if you watch it without the group who is subbing this not put any "cultural notes" and ieven if they do its still difficult ot understand why its so important in the show or why its funny. Still found this drama good even though I did somewhat know culture stuff. I recommend this. (Watched Summer 2007)
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Pretty good show, about 8.5ish. Teacher lies to student about her having a disease but in reality he has it. Good Romace show. (Summer 06)
Kuitan [喰いタン]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I love detective shows but this one was kind of lame. Lead char is quite lame the other chars are irritating but you get used to it. SHow is about a detective agency getting a new boss and this boss loves eating, also thats how he solves his crimes. (Summer 06)
Kurosagi [クロサギ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
More on the 7.75 side. For some reason I just find Tackey. I just find this guys acting so mediocre if anything. LLL, Nobuta, Zakura, This show. Really nothing. Anyways, this show is on the weaker side of the dramas Ive watched. Good to watch if you want time to kill you. (Summer 06)
Long Love Letter [ロング・ラブレター〜漂流教室]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
About 8.5. I liked this show kind a lot more than I wouldve thought. A little slow but it picked up for me. I dont think this is for everybody; probably only a few would like it as much as I did. (Fall 06)
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
About a 8.5. Not his best drama. It is a perty good show but now as good as his others. Engine or Pride is his best so far that I have watched. Anyways, this drama was kinda lame but it Im sure it happens all the time. Platonic male-female possible? I dont know, maybe. (Late Fall 06)
Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Well- I saw this one a couple years back and I forgot to add it to my dramas because I was going to to Korea to study =( Its about a solid 8; good food, not too much romance, fine characters- all you want in a drama. Recommend Highly! (07 Summer)
Maou [魔王]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
1st 6 or so episodes were quite fine. The rest were somewhat boring and lame. 10 seconds before the drama finished I was going to give this a 7.5 but after the 10 seconds finished I dropped it to a 7. Horrible Ending. The ending was bad enough but the ending ending just made it even worse. Decent drama with little plot twists. Better to watch Chakushin Ari, Nemureru Mori or Taiyou no Kisetsu. (Watched Fall 09)
Nemureru mori [眠れる森]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the better dramas Ive watched. Really interesting. For some reason I kept getting chicken skin when she would recall her memory, haha. I was right on who the murderer was, but they try to sway your thinking. Good show. Must watch. (Spring 07)
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Pretty OK show IMO also. Show is kind of corny but entertaining. basically "Produce Nobuta", trying to get her to be the most popular in school. (Spring 06)
Ns' Aoi [Ns’ あおい ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Satomi Ishihara=Cutie. Nurse Aoi=Pity. Very predictable show, but entertaining. The "villian" in the show is cool though. (Winter 06)
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Pretty good also, a hockey love drama thingy. very entertaining. I love the female lead char. excellent IMO. (Fall 06)
Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
About 8.5ish. The more I watch dramas the harder it is to compare. Anyways, this drama is on the better side. It shows some aspects of how the Japanese treat Okinawans and also some culture appears. I wonder if any of the actors knew Okinawan; that would be awesome. Narumi is so cute and sophisticated also. Takenouchi is great also. (Summer 07)
Saiyuuki [西遊記 ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
8.5ish. At first when I was watching the 1st episode, I was thinking to myself "This is so crappy, I think Imma stop watching." Then I thought "Wait, I watched Ganbatte Ikimashaoo till the end so may as well watch this." Well, I am glad that I did. Very good show. Person who played Gokuu did a really really good job, also RinRin was good also. Comedy, Action. Must watch! Show gets better and better with each episode! Episode 10(or 9) was hella funny also. (Wintter 06)
Sapuri [サプリ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
About 7.5. OMG Kame Kaz looks so much like a girl I couldnt stand it! I hate his acting in this and in Nobuta. How dare he steal kisses from Misaki!! Misaki looks the best when they make her look distinguished as always. Boring Romance!!! Itoh Misaki!!! Densha Otoko better! (Spring 07)
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Excellent, sad drama. Especially if you feel like crying. Best drama Ive watched period! This show is much better than One Liter of Tears. (Spring 06)
Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
This is about an 8. 1st teen drama that Ive seen and this stuff actually happens regularly. I was dissapointed at the ending, I was expecting everyone to die. The 1st episode gave me the impression that this was going to be another Taiyou no Kisetsu but I was wrong, a little dissapointing but o well. Kubozuka Yusukes char is so me. I love that char. This drama practically relates to me except the ending. Good enough drama to watch. (Fall 06)
Taiyo no Kisetsu [太陽の季節]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
This is actually on the 8.5 side. This show is a so called "Drama". Very twisted plot. I love it! Main Char is the way to go. I wanna be just like him. (Summer 06)
Taiyou no uta [タイヨのうた]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
This is an 8. More romantic than predicted. I thought it would be much more sad, unfortunately they tricked me into watching a lame Romace develop. Not a must watch, but you could be entertained with this. (Spring 07)
Tiger & Dragon [タイガー&ドラゴン]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
One of the better dramas Ive watched, quite funny and I like how they use "rakugo" torwards the ending to tell what happened. Also Itoh Misaki is hot and ultimate in this show. Though I prefer in Densha Otoko. Must watch drama. (Summer 06)
Triangle [トライアングル]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Just rememberd I watched this. Been like 8 months alsmot. Haha. So bad. IIRC it was not bad. So an 8 is suitable. BTW- Ending theme is sick! Listen to it. (Watched Fall 09)
Trick [トリック]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Great Show! Tons of lame jokes and puns. Over the top mysteries, over-acting, dialects= YOU! Watched Fall 09
Trick Season 2 [トリック2]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Once again. Bring back everything except with much more= too much? Great drama. I highly prefer 3 episode to solve one case over one or 2 eps. "Haha. That's exactly what I thought." Watched Fall 09
Trick Season 3 [トリック3]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Last of the Trick series. I gave a 9 BUT I was going to give this around an 8.5ish but I upped it because of the ending. The ending really did it for me. Good Ending to a good series. It shouldn't come back in any form whatsoever. The ending to each case is much deeper than previous seasons. I didn't care for them too much but it makes sense to do in that way. "YOU!!!" Watched Fall 09
