Hayami Mokomichi [速水もこみち] weird, I kind of didn't notice him at all in Gokusen 2, though his tallness... but then I saw him in Densha.... it was like, wow... he's really gorgeous @[email protected]
Kamenashi Kazuya [亀梨和也] He's a skilled actor, singer and dancer, not to mention he's goodlooking. My favourite artiste right now =)
Matsumoto Jun [松本潤] I first saw him in Gokusen, after that I watch the other dramas such as Kimi wa Petto, Kindaichi 3 and Hana Yori Dango. I was so surprised when I knew he was going to be in that drama, and the lead role too.... He is really good in HYD, best role so far =)
Tanabe Seiichi [田辺誠一] First time I saw him .... I don't even remember, but I thought then, ugh... he's so ugly. =/ I don't know if I think he's so particular skilled actor, but I like the roles he does, especially in Garasu no Kamen. Pretty Girl was also okay. I didn't like him in Kimi wa Petto, maybe because he was too "perfect" there, and then I like the character of Matsumoto Jun better... Anyway, I bought Tanabe's "Life is journey", haven't watched it yet.
Yamashita Tomohisa [山下智久] Haven't seen many dramas with YamaPi, but he was very funny and sympathetic in Nobuta wo Produce. He seems to be a nice, wellmannered and skilled guy, and he's one of those guys that actually writes diary.... =)
jica's dramas (21)
Anego [アネゴ] Rating: 7/10 Actually, I haven't watch all the episodes yet, because I only have subs to the 6th ep. It's a nice story, sometimes I get annoyed with the main female, why is she so mean to Jin (don't remember his name in this drama). And I think it's unrealistic that they would be together in the end, cause their lifestyle and thinkings are way to far from each other... think that has to do with the age gap....
Densha Otoko [電車男] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) This drama was really funny, since I'm a computer nerd myself I enjoyed to watch it. But I don't like neither the main female or male lead, so this isn't going to be any favourite.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) It was entertaining, but from a teacher's point of view, I don't know if I liked it that much... they just studied to get into Todai, fast knowledge don't stay long (especially the English studies was a bit so-so....) Anyway, I liked Yamapi, my second drama with him, he was totally different from Akira in Nobuta. He was so cool here, me like me like ^^
Garasu no kamen Special Ending Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched) Hm... I didn't like the fiancée thing, that she stabbed him with the knife... but it was sweet when they finally confess to each other.
Gokusen [ごくせん] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) I like the storyline and the characters better in Gokusen 1, Jun's so cool in here.... though sometimes there's so exaggerating with those fights and things, really, can things be solved by violence? If the teacher didn't know how to fight, then there'd be no help for them... poor guys. =/ But sure, Gokusen will make you cry, sometimes it's really touching.
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん２] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) I liked this one basely because of Kame. It was the first time I watch a drama with him in, but I actually liked him right away.... so kakkoi. Much the same as the first one, though I think that Odagiri and Sawada were very alike, almost like Odagiri's character was another Shin, not interested in girls (maybe only in Yankumi), cool, smart... and the story about Odagiri's father... wasn't that Shin's story in the manga??? Anyway, if it weren't because of Kame I don't think I'd give this one this high ratings at all....
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) I couldn't help comparing this with MG, and though I really liked MG when I saw it, now I can just say that the new HYD with Jun is waaaaay better. I didn't like Jerry Yan portraiying Tsukasa, you'll just think he's a baka, but Jun's making him much more alive and sympathetic =) A must see!
Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット] Rating: 4/10 (Watched) Nah... that storyline... yikes... but I liked Jun's acting, so different from Gokusen. It's okay with stories that is about older women and younger men, but a pet...? Annoying. Tanabe was cute though very annoying in this drama.
Kindaichi Shonen no Jikembo 3 [金田一少年の事件簿 3] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) I think Jun is too cool and too handsome to be Kindaichi... and I didn't liked the cases that much. But it was enjoyable. Anne Suzuki was good as Miyuki. Maybe I look forward to it too much so I was kind of disappointed. But I think you should see it.
Kindaichi shonen no Jikenbo (2005) [金田一少年の事件簿] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) Though I think Kame also is too handsome to be Kindaichi, but I really like his Kindaichi... so funny and adorable. I have watched it over and over again.... A different Kindaichi from the manga. =) The girl playing Miyuki was cute too, did a good job I think. Though the case wasn't that impressive....
Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo 1 [金田一少年の事件簿 1] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) Sooooo good. No handsome Kindaichi, but he's good (don't remember his name). I liked the cases, cause they made you scared and you get this dark feeling... A must see! The best Kindaichi drama of them all.
This one I really have high expectations for. Interesting plot. The coolest of Yamapi I've seen so far (he really looks very kakkoii, I like his dark hair and serious look), and I think the chemistry between him and Maki is good here (there wasn't any between them in Nobuta). Can't wait to see the whole drama ^^
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) I first thought it was a light hearted teenage school drama, but it's much more than so. It's not any manga-storyline, I think they deal with deeper things, about life, friendship, how to be a good person etc.... Of course I started watch it because of Kame (and Kame's one reason that makes this drama so good), but now I have come to like the other characters too... The first episodes don't make you hooked, but it's getting better and better (and darker and darker though....) Hope it will have a good ending. O-o
Edit: No need to fear, I just loved the ending. It was soooooooo good, a little bit sad but absolutely great. =)
Pretty Girls [プリティガール] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) I was so hooked... till the ending kill it all. How could Tanabe be with the other girl???? Didn't make any sense, and the chemistry between them... NOWAY!! Just skip the final ep and you'll have a good drama =)
Pride [プライド] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) I haven't watched the whole drama yet. So far so good. Don't really like the main female. She's okay, but I can't say why she's so popular...
Sore wa, Totsuzen, Arashi no you ni... [それは、突然、嵐のように…] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) I watched it because of Yamapi, didn't really like the drama, don't like how the female lead treated the young boy. Anyway, for me, this wasn't so much of a love story, because he seemed to be such a boy, more like mother and son relationship.
With love Rating: 9/10 (Watched) This one was good. My first Jdrama, I saw it with Cantonese dubbs... but then I rewatched it in Japanese with Eng subs, must say it was much better... Sweet story. I like internet stories and mailings.... kind of naive but romantic. Though the end was a bit.... dorky, when then quoted the whole mail-thing to each other... couldn't they have said anything more relevant to the present...? Anyway, watch it. =)
