Aoi Tori [青い鳥] A Must See! [Rating: 10/10] One of the best (if not THE BEST) dorama that i've ever watched. Very strong and convincing performances by the entire acting staff, and although something tragic happens midway through the story (I won't tell) and you're left wondering where does the story goes from there, it really does continues on in interesting and thought provoking way. Big Kudos for this one. If you havent seen Aoi Tori yet, SEE IT! This one shouldn't be missed.
Bus stop [バスストップ] Nice, but predictable. [Rating: 5/10] All of the actors and actresses did a good job, not taking anyting away from their performance skills, but it was too predictable for me, especially at the end, and I can unfortunately see elements from other dramas in this one which is something that I dont like to see in stories. Other than this it is an ok dorama to watch. Quite funny in some areas.
Dollhouse [ドールハウス] It Sucks! [Rating: 1/10] I watched 2 episodes. I want my $2 dollar rental fee back.
Kira kira hikaru [きらきらひかる/法醫物語] Interesting + funny = I loved it! [Rating: 10/10] It's basicly a dorama about 4 women whos job is to become the voice of dead people and tell us how they died. Each episode deals with a different kind of situation for them to solve and they do this in interesting ways. 3 of the women play the role of forensic medical experts and 1 of the women play the role of a police officer. The relatioship between medicine and law is interesting see and learn about from the characters, as is their personal relationship with eachother too. Quite serious and funny at times, and also quite touching. I learned a lot of things about forensic medicine and dead people that I never knew befor that was interesting. Although i'm not crazy about medical type doramas, this one is a good dorama to watch if you haven't watched it befor.
Mouichido kisu [もう一度キス] Are you kidding me!?!? [Rating: 1/10] The GOOD thing about watching this dorama was that I DIDN'T finish watching it. The BAD thing about watching this dorama was that I wished that I could have gone back to the video rental store and got my $4 dollars back.
Sutouka sasou onna [ストーカー・誘う女] Stupid... [Rating: 4/10] I think the writers of this story must have all been drunk when they wrote it. From my understanding, stalkers are supposed to be scary people in society, but, the stalker in this story ( and by the way, the entire story itself) is dreadfully funny. Well...., drunk people (if the writers were really drunk) usually do things that make me laugh if I see them out in public, so, if they can also tell me a story that'll make me laugh, then 2 thumbs up to them. Keep the laughter comming.

Toumei ningen Toumei ningen [Rating: 10/10] Ok, call me shallow, but I really loved this one. My friend thought that I was nuts for liking this dorama, but, who cares what she thinks. Toumei ningen made me laugh.....a lot!! It gets a bit serious towards the end but the laughs are still there throughout the show and I enjoyed it. Besides, who wouldn't want to take time out in their life to become invisible for awhile and do some crazy things (like Fukatsu Eri's character did) if they really could ?
Tsumetai tsuki [冷たい月] Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!! [Rating: 10/10] I don't know how she did it but Nakamori Akina played a character that got on my nerves, got under my skin, made me wanna throw up, and got in my hair in a really bad way as if someone threw a big wad of chewed chewing gum in it. She was sooooooooo evil and I got sooo mad at her that I wanted to jump into the tv and strangle her character. With this in mind, what i'm really trying to say is this; If a person can act soooo well in a story as an evil character and get my emotions to come out of me like this, then that person did an excelent job. I don't know how Akina did it...... but she did! I loved this dorama!
