Ao no jidai [青の時代] Wow.I was impressed by Tsuyoshi's acting...or rather..everyone's...I like this drama alot..Guess I don't see much of such dramas now..but it makes me feel alot for the characters in it..and I like both songs from the drama...'Ao no jidai' and Porushka Pore'...
Koishite Shinitai [恋して死にたい] I am voting for it...because it's the first that I was very CRAZY about...though not now...I guess it'll still be one of my favourite....I like Tsuyoshi's performance and Miura Tohko's character..
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人] A great drama.....I thought the idea of Sakuraba Yuuichiro was refereshing....one drama that can make me laugh and cry so much....I lika the actors' performances here.Nagase.Aiba.Takuchi.Shinohara...the whole family...
It's really brillant...
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース] Shuji to Akira wa Futari de hitotsudatta!
though very different from the novel, this adaptation touched me with its portrayal of human nature and true friendship! great performance from the JE idols and Horikita Maki as well!!
Dohmoto Koichi [堂本光一] I like his role in 'Tenshi ga kieta machi'..maybe not everyone like that dorama...but I do like it alot...I'm also impressed with Ningen Shikkaku...though not the best,he could act like that at such a young age..I thought Ryuka was a difficult role..
Dohmoto Tsuyoshi [堂本剛] My favourite actor!!!! Initially liked him in'to Heart~koishite shinitai'..however, I prefer 'Ao no Jidai' now..He's brilliant as Kindaichi Hajime as well. I think he is able to play both comical and serious roles well, he can make me laugh or cry to tears..from Kindaichi to more mature roles such as in'Summer Snow' and 'Motokare' , we can see how he has grown..and to mention that I like ( love) his voice (^_^)!!
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉] He's has got that charm...I like him especially in 'Hero'..a very versatile and convincing actor..brings that X-factor to his dramas..
Kubozuka Yosuke [窪塚洋介] I initially did not really like him..But after watching his performance in'S.O.S' and the movie 'GO'...I have nothing to say...
Nagase Tomoya [長瀬智也] Ahhh!!!! I like Sakuraba Yuuichiro!!! Think he is really versatile..compare 'Ring' to 'Handoku' and to 'mukodono'...He is convincing..and his performance is very entertaining...
Nakama Yukie [仲間由紀恵] Initially noticed her in small roles...I started to like her in 'Kimi to ita mirai no tame ni' ..but now she's very popular with main roles in dramas such as 'trick' and 'gokusen'...(^_^)
Tomosaka Rie [ともさかりえ] I like her alot as Miyuki..think she has a lot of chemistry with Domoto Tsuyoshi as the 'first generation Kindaichi and Miyuki'...after watching her later dramas..I think she's a good actress...especially when she could take up main roles when she was only so young..hope to see more of her new dramas.....and I like her songs too!
Uchida Yuki [内田有紀] With just one role in 'tenshi ga kieta machi'...she becomes one of my favourite actresses...and after that i watched her other dramas...she has stopped acting now..is it so? (-_-)
Ao no jidai [青の時代] ao no jidai~hikari wo mirareru*Spoiler* [Rating: 9/10] The two songs of this dorama are...beautiful, dicpicts the emotions, the strong feelings as messages so when...esp. 'Porushka Pore' .everytime i hear it..it reminds of how Ryu was not accepted. Okina's character Akane is at least a female role who fights for herself and Ryu, not the usual damsel in distress..admirable when she tries to protect Ryuwhat the drama seems to be tragic, touched with a sorrowful and gloomy tone..yet has a beautiful,positive ending. I love the characters and how they have deveoloped and changed in the end....Friendship, love , tragedy, trust, mistrust? hatred?and HOPE... this drama sets me to think. Of course, am I getting to long winded. I love this dorama. Tsuyoshi actually convincingly as Ryu, Megumi, ( in a role that i feel is very different from he rest), as Akane is one of the female characters that I admire. There is something abt her.Ryoko as her sister is GREAT, her internal conflicts, desperations to get away from her past..she brings out the unexpected of the dorama..having said to much, Ryu's friends are Great too..true friends we can see from here, One last word : Awesome!!
Hero Best!!!!!! [Rating: 10/10] I really Takuya Kimura with Matsu Takako.This drama is just....so .WONDERFUL.!The content is meaningful and interesting...well...the ending was sort of funny...I like the theme song!!
Kimi to ita mirai no tame ni ~ airu bi bakku [?N???] Confusing.. but interesting [Rating: 7/10] I admitted after skipping a few episodes..I was confused but after watching the whole drama..I quite like it.The story is definately unique and arouses interest...the actors acted well too..The theme song suits too..
Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo 1 [金田一少年の事件簿 1] Kindaichi Hajime [Rating: 8/10] The plot.. the murderer always murder for revenge or usually? Tsuyoshi and Rie acted well for Hajime and Miyuki.A funny couple.But the story is usuall intersting and the scene have been done well.I enjoyed watching it!
Koishite Shinitai [恋して死にたい] tokieda yuji miura tohko [Rating: 10/10] Being a Tsuyoshi Domoto and Fukada Kyoko fan, this drama's a big treat for me!!Luv it very much.Wish they can act again together !!!
Ningen shikkaku [人間・失格] *depressed [Rating: 7/10] very very dark..i have to skip certain parts, can't bear to watch them...tsuyoshi and koichi were brilliant..so were the rest of the cast... well...tsuyoshi acted well as oba makoto..and Ryuka's character was more challenging and difficult in my point of view...everytime i think of makoto I'll feel depressed..(0_0)..some how..i'd think that is a makoto out there..weird..haiz..
Tenshi ga kieta machi [天使が消えた街] Sad....but a touching story [Rating: 7/10] The story seemed to be weird at first However, it is quite a good story, especially the part between the brothers but I still hope the ending would be better. I think that the actors ( koichi domoto, uchida yuki...) acted well in this dorama. No spoilers here but I to say that I felt very sad after the last scene of the last episode, if only that could be changed..
