|Ace wo Nerae! [エースをねらえ!]||Ai no Uta [あいのうた]|
stuck in the middle.
I think rating my dramas is overrated *hah! how ironic!*
i love this drama. i think it's really funny. especially Samu and Sumire. lol. suzuki anne is so cute and young here. kawaii! so as nino!
|Ame to Yume no atoni [雨と夢の後に]||Anego [アネゴ]|
i finished this even without subtitles. i loved ryoko's character and how she portrayed it. i's so natural. and jin... well, jin's just an eye candy. what can i say. i need to see more of him so i can appreciate him more.
|Asunaro hakusho [あすなろ白書]|
This is by far the best drama I've seen *as of 02/15/06* except the first 2 episodes and the last episode were a bit too slow for me *considering i like slow dramas* but from ep 3 to 10, it's like non-stop climax of beautiful and fucked up of all fucked up storylines. i can't even describe what to feel in this drama. it's a twisted and intertwined connection of friends that totally fucked each other up. it's so painfully beautiful. such an amazing drama. all of the actors were amazing. i actually wanted this to end at around ep 7 or 8 just to have that feel like, damn! this is hella fucked up! definitely a must-see!
|Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]||Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]|
Ueto aya's character is just so funny here. Ryo's character is the same as always. The sappy guy who's so serious, barely smiles. Not a bad series to see when just lounging during the weekend.
|Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]||Bijo ka Yajuu [美女か野獣]||Blackjack ni Yoroshiku [ブラックジャックによろしく]|
|Boku dake no Madonna [僕だけのマドンナ]|
very, very entertaining. and takki's sexy ass is also good in portraying his character. it's so him. kyoko's character is somewhat eh, but she played it well. other characters like mr. writer, mute guy, bar lady and chief security's pretty good. i didn't like takki's emo girlfriend. overall, pretty laid back drama to watch.
|Bokura no yuuki ~miman toushi~ [ぼくらの勇氣 ~未滿都市~]|
if you love arashi and kinki kids, you'll love this. matusumoto is sooo cute i just wanna pinch his cheeks. this is definitely a must-see! the plot/story is very good. well directed/produced. it talks about friendship, family, and the crazy government. it has a very good ending considering it has a scifi feel to it. very easy to understand not like long love letter. hahaha. hosho mai is a tough lil bitch but also it's pretty sad cuz she has to... yeah. screw you dad! you weak ass muthasucka. anywho... i'm gonna go watch it again since i haven't seen it forever.
it wasn't one of the best plots but it was a good acting both delivered by takayuki and haruka. it's very dark and twisted. i admit i skipped some. it was a little slow for me.
|Cheap Love [チープラブ]||Densha Otoko [電車男]|
I like this dorama. It's definitely a feel-good movie. It's really, really funny and I'd recommend it to any net surfers and otakus. wahaha. Although, I don't find it realistic. ok, maybe it is but I don't know anyone with this experience.
|Double score [ダブル スコア]||Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]|
it wasn't that bad. it's in the GTO, gokusen genre. failure students and all that stuff. bad boy teacher. watch if you're a big news or wat groupie.
my first takuya drama. it was interesting. if it wasn't for koyuki and the lil kids, i probably turned it off. but i didn't. i'm still debating if i should dl another takuya drama. i'd definitely put this in the low-rated dramas.
|Fire Boys [ファイアーボーイズ 〜め組の大吾〜]||First Love||Food fight [フードファイト]|
|Friends [フレンズ]||G@me||Gachi Baka ! [ガチバカ !]|
i just saw this and i forgot it already. lol. i guess it didn't really leave an impression. it falls into the gokusen, dragon zakura genre.
|Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい]|
i love this drama. i saw it after the mago-mago boat race of arashi so i felt really touched because of what arashi had to go through. i loved all 5 girls' performance/acting. and just wanna say something random... ryo is a shortie ^___^
This is the first Jun dorama I've seen. I love his character here. This is when I fell in love with him and Arashi. The story might not relate to me but the casts are just kawaii. I feel for Yankumi here, trying to deal with teenagers and their raging hormones. Wahaha. Nevertheless, I found it cute and fun to watch.
|Gokusen 2 [ごくせん２]|
I saw Gokusen 2 before Gokusen so I actually enjoyed this drama. Although, I might find it dull after watching Gokusen since it's almost the same with just minor changes. I'm rating it as if Gokusen 1 never existed. I think the casts were also funny and the storyline was ok.
|Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル]||Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！]||GTO [麻辣教師]|
i have to watch this again because as much as i enjoyed it, i had to wait a month and a half, nearly forgetting the first 10 episodes, for the last 2 episodes. the only thing stuck with me was the song. lalalalala...lalalalala... Poison! lol
|H2~Kimi to itahibi [２〜君といた日々]|
this drama was good. it made me a yamada fan. nice plot. it was something different. something original (considering it's the first baseball drama i've seen). watch it if you haven't.
|Haikei, Chichiue-sama [拝啓、父上様]|
|Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]|
Honestly, I think this is better than MG because of the actors, the setting and the overall storyline. Sure it was short, but it beats a 20 something chaptered drama. Matsujun is a great actor.

|Home & Away [ホーム＆アウェイ]||Hoshi no kinka 1 [星の金貨]||Hoshi no kinka 2 / Zoku hoshi no kinka [續。星の金貨]|
|Hotaru no haka [蛍の墓]|
this is not bad if you compare it to the anime. i saw the anime early last year and i cried non-stop. i was so crushed. this one was somewhat different because nanako's character had more airtime. i sympathize with her character more than in the anime. she was cruel there!
|Hotman [ホットマン]||Hotman 2 [ホットマン2]|
|Ichi Ritoru no Namida [１リットルの涙]|
i saw this after a busy day *innertubing and bungee jumping* at whistler, canada. lol. i don't think i remember much of the story because of the extreme adventure that i did. i thought i would really shed a liter of tears here but it didn't even come close to a milliliter. but then again, not a lot of dramas make me cry.
|Ikebukuro West Gate Park [池袋ウエストゲートパーク]|
very sad ending bec yamapi died but i loved this series also. definitely a must see for you nagase fans and non-groupies bec nagase always gives his 100% in all his dramas. it's a mixed of comedy, detective/thriller, drama.
|Itsumo futari de [いつもふたりで]|
this is the last drama i finished as of 01/25/06, 6 p.m. pacific time. ep 6 and 9 were corrupted so i had to push myself to finish it. i was really pissed off! but i loved it! i felt so moved by mizuho's persistence. i thought she had the talent and i nearly cried when yamazaki voiced his 2 cents. on the other hand, i don't think i can love my best bud.
|Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ]|
i dunno if it's fukada kyoko or is it the plot but this dark love story was a so so. definitely a big plot bec of the whole HIV disease thing but i don't think kyoko was the right girl. or you can look at it as the wrong series for her. i don't know. go watch it and see it for youself.
|Kimi ga oshietekureta koto [君が教えてくれたこと]||Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット]|
This is the second Jun dorama I've seen. I love it. I've seen it three times and I can't get tired watching it. The way Jun delivered here is just so natural. I didn't find it cheesy despite him being a pet. A lot of people might assume and say, oh that's stupid, how can you make a human your pet? And goes on to think of it as a stupid dorama. But I actually enjoyed this. Jun is just amazing and kawaii!
|Kindaichi Shonen no Jikembo 3 [金田一少年の事件簿 3]|
all i can say is, butterfly manor. lol. that house is domyouji's house in hana yori dango. it was creepy seeing that sister laying down with leaves/butterflies on her and her red outfit.
|Kindaichi shonen no Jikenbo (2005) [金田一少年の事件簿]|
this is a so so for me. i'd put it in the low-rated list.
|Kisarazu Cat's Eye [木更津キャッツアイ]|
loved this drama! the energy of the boys here were just amazing. it's so natural. i loved it when they play the characters so well and they bring them to life that you end up thinking they're that way. loved it. a must see!
|Koi Seyo Otome [恋セヨ乙女]||Koibumi [恋文~私たちが愛した男]||Koishite Shinitai [恋して死にたい]|
this drama was a bit sad (like wth? sad). i mean, i liked the acting and everything but the storyline somewhat disappointed me. the whole i'll cheer you on forever started to annoy me. plus, it's not a comedy drama. it's pure romance but you see this girl going gaga over some boxer. i mean it's ok, but really, their "relationship" wasn't part of the storyline. i'll put this in my so so list (in the middle).
|Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]|
this drama is different and i loved it. i cried a whole lot. lol. the plot pulled everything and the great acting of naohito. aya's character was also amazing but i thought anybody can just do it. go watch it now!
|Kougen e Irasshai [高原へいらっしゃい！]||Kurisumasu Nante Dai Kirai|
the story was different. yamapi's character versus him was eh. at times he's natural but sometimes, the character was just too mature for him. i liked him acting his age and i feel his character was around 25ish y.o. oh well, i bet news groupies were drooling.
|Kyousoukyoku [協奏曲]||Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji 2 [救命病棟２４時 ２]|
|Last Christmas [ラストクリスマス]||Long Love Letter [ロング・ラブレター〜漂流教室]|
very different and somewhat weird like at the end wtf? what happened? it's not like miman city. hahaha. a mixture of romance and sci fi except it's not really sci fi but somewhat because of the whole earthquake thing and the hotel, putting that can opener there. wtf? but yosuke's hot so fuck the story. hahaha. watch it if you like yosuke!
|Love complex [ラブコンプレックス]|
|Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]||Love Revolution [ラブレボリューション]||Love Story|
|Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]||Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]|
i'll definitely fall in love with a guy 10 years younger than me if it was tackey. i think this is the turning point of his acting career. this is when he "matured". although i still think he's an eye candy just like the rest of the je boys.
|Manatsu no Merry Christmas [真夏のメリークリスマス]|
|Mariya||Mayonaka no Ame [真夜中の雨]||Meguri ai [めぐり逢い]|
|Minamikun no koibito [南くんの恋人]||Moto Kare [元カレ]||Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人]|
this drama is totally funny!!! tomoya is just so adorable here. he's just the perfect kakkoi, easy-going husband. so professional outside yet such a kid behind closed doors. makes me wanna find someone like his character so i'll have my childhood right in front of me.
|My Little Chef||Narita Rikon [成田離婚]||Nemureru mori [眠れる森]|
|Netsuretsu Teki Chuuka Hanten [熱烈的中華飯店]||News no onna [ニュースの女]||Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]|
the storyline is good but weird at times *like those spirits O_o wtf?* i had to drop it and watch the rest after the drama was over so i forgot some weird parts.
|Odoru Daisousasen [踊る大捜査線]||Omiai kekkon [お見合い結婚]||Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]|
one of the best dramas i've seen. tsumabuki is such a good actor just from the skills he portrayed since many of the scenes were hand/eye/body signs.
very funny. almost like oyaji but not quite. strict dad, rebel kids. very well done also. actors portrayed characters well. also a tearjerker.
|Pretty Girls [プリティガール]||Pride [プライド]|
|rinbukyoku [輪舞曲]||Ring: Saishusho [リング 最終章]||Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]|
loved it! it wrenched my heart how ruri's mom can do that. i love that island. reminds me of my hometown Aurora in PI.
|Sapuri [サプリ]||Sarariman Kintaro 1 (TBS) [サラリーマン金太郎]||Sarariman Kintaro 2 (TBS) [サラリーマン金太郎2]|
|Sarariman Kintaro 3 (TBS) [サラリーマン金太郎]||Sarariman Kintaro 4 (TBS) [サラリーマン金太郎]||Satorare [サトラレ]|
i loved loved loved this drama. it's by far the most sci fi movie i've ever seen that almost convinced me it was real. i loved it!
|Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]||Shimokita Sundays [下北サンデーズ]|
i thought i wrote something here already. oh well. i liked this drama a lot. hosho mai was a little witch. it's one big flower power up in this office. def a chick flick. very funny.
|Shomuni 2 [ショムニ 2]||Shomuni Final [ショムニ ファイナル/庶務二課]|
|Slow Dance [スローダンス]|
although a lot of people found this slow, it wasn't for me. i actually liked it. but 3 years is a long time to wait just to get dumped. sad. lol
|Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [空から降る一億の星]|
wow! i loved the storyline on this. the beginning of the last episode was pretty shocking. and the ending, wow, i loved the ending. what a way to end a good series. beautiful! this is the kind of ending i want. not someone going and the other staying. that's all kdrama. but this is wow! hmmm.. i also love that saying, ignorance is bliss. definitely in my top list.
This is the first Nino dorama I've seen. I must say, he is one helluva good actor. I think he made a big impact on the story. The storyline is funny and the casts are kawaii. I was left wanting a part 2.
|Star no Koi [スタアの恋]|
02/01/06. fujiwara's mouth bugged me the first couple episodes but i got over it. i'm thinking she probably just got her teeth straightened. anywho... the drama itself, wow... honestly, i cried. but i laughed a lot too. i'd recommend it. definitely! the subs were just ehhh... but overall, thumbs up!
|Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]|
This drama although I didn't shed any tear here, is one of my highly recommended dramas. It's a definite if you're into mind-fucking ones cuz this will get you twisted, but not too dark. It still held its romance feel. Yosuke is becoming one of my favorite actors.
|Suekko chounan ane san nin [末っ子長男姉三人]||Summer snow|
This dorama is amazing. The casts were also amazing. It is one of my favorites. I didn't expect the twist at the end that left me with a clogged chest. This dorama got me laughing althrough the whole episode and that's why I like it a lot.
|Taiho shichauzo [逮捕しちゃうぞ]|
|Taiyo no Kisetsu [太陽の季節]|
i would put this in my top rated list. i have a lot to say. like... run tackey, run! hahaha! i swear, i always see him running in every damn drama i watch. shugo... wow! has it been that long since i've seen br2? can't even remember where i saw the guy. i had to check his profile here. going on to the most important aspect of this whole rating thing... the storyline.
this drama is really dark and mind-twisting. i loved it!!! it was a bit sad at the end but i wanted tackey to die instead of the girl just to make the story more fucked up! one more thing that i liked about this was how easy for me to guess that the house helper liked the mom. one thing that i have to pound these actors for. the kissing scenes. come on tackey! kiss like there's no tomorrow! i wanna see kisses not smacks!

honestly, i love all nino dramas. this guy can act. but i often wonder what if he's given the role of a happy guy. would he be able to pull it off. this guy belongs to the darkside. terao is a very, very good actor. but he only has 4 dramas so i wonder if he's new.
