Gokusen [ごくせん]
This is definitely one of my favorite dramas ever! It's so cute and very heartwarming. This is where my love for Jun Matsumoto got cemented. He was awesome as Sawada.
GTO [麻辣教師]
This is the best drama I've ever seen!! It's so good and so funny. I love it! I love it! Sorimachi Takashi is brilliant in this show. Outstanding performance. Onizuka's the best teacher. I wish he was mine. :)
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
I like it a lot better than the anime. There are so many good looking guys on this show. This cemented my love for MatsuJun and Oguri Shun. They are such awesome actors. Definitely up there on my top favorite dramas list.
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
This is one of the most beautiful, touching dramas I have ever seen. It's an incredible story of overcoming tragedy and finding the will to live on. It's really amazing. It's so heartwrenching and incredible. Should be on everyone's must see list.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Absolutely fabulous! This drama's one of the best ones I have seen. Kimutaku is shining in this. The chemistry between Sena and Minami is great. All the actors were superb and the story is really catchy. Really enjoyed watching this.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
One of the funniest dramas I've ever seen. Literally. I loved every minute of it. Especially the orchestra performances. I definitely recommend this drama to anyone. :D
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
This drama is so incredible. The acting is phenomenal. Everyone did a wonderful job. The chemistry between Kai and Sae is great. There are so many depths and layers to each of them. It almosts seems as if they are real life couple. Truly amazing and touching drama.
Pride [プライド]
One of the best dramas I've seen so far. Kimutaku is absolutely brilliant. He gives his character such intensity and emotion. Aki and Halu have great chemistry together. And the story is awesome. Definitely recommend this to anyone, even if they don't watch hockey.

One of the best dramas I've ever seen, and is definitely near the top of my favorites list. It's touching and so heartbreaking. I was crying my eyes out and used up all of my tissue.

Fujiki Naohito [藤木直人]
If you look up the definition of "gorgeous," his picture would be there. He's absolutely handsome. Also an incredible actor. In every role he makes you love him. Wow, I'm in awe.
Inoue Mao [井上真央]
This girl is really great. Looking forward to more of her dramas.
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉]
What is there to say about Kimutaku?? There's no doubt about it, he's the best!! He's gorgeous, can sing, and is a marvelous actor. Unbeatable combination. He's so good!! It's like everything he touches turns to gold. It's really amazing. If you do not vote for this man, you are either braindead or don't have good taste in actors. I'll watch any drama that has him in it.
Koyuki [小雪]
I absolutely loved her in Kimi Wa Petto and the Last Samurai. I love her in Engine, especially. She's so lovely and such a good actress. Can't get enough of her.
Matsushima Nanako [松嶋菜々子]
She's one of the most beautiful and talented actresses I've ever watched. Absolutely love her. She's awesome. And she's married to one of the most gorgeous actors ever. Lucky lucky.
Shibasaki Kou [柴咲コウ]
She's so beautiful and has such a lovely singing voice. First saw her in Good Luck, and thought she did a pretty good job. Definitely won me over when I saw Orange Days. Wow, props to her on that challenging role. She totally nailed it!
Sorimachi Takashi [反町隆史]
I absolutely LOVE him! He's one of the best actors I've eve seen. He's so incredible in GTO. And he's married to one of the most beautiful actresses ever! Ahhh!
Tamaki Hiroshi [玉木宏]
He stole my heart in Nodame Cantabile. Possibly one of the best looking Japanese actors out there. He does have that uncanny resemblance to Gackt, though.

This has got to be one of the best dramas I've ever seen, and is definitely one of my favorites, ever! Yankumi is so awesome and looks exactly like the anime that it's a little bit scary. This is where I definitely cemented my love for Jun Matsumoto and Shun Oguri. Omgosh, were they great or what?

I absolutely fell in love with Jun Matsumoto while watching this. He is so awesome as Doumyouji. And Tsukushi is so adorable. There are so many beautiful people on this show, it's crazy!!

A really touching, also at the same time, really sad and depressing drama. The story is good, and the overall theme is versatile. But homegirl, Fukada Kyoko, needs some serious acting lessons. She needs to show more emotion and not use the same tone all the time. But I LOVE Kaneshiro Takeshi. He's so great, and so gorgeous.

It's such a sad story, but it's so beautiful. I can't tell you how many times I've cried during this series, especially during the last two episodes. I mean, you know that she's going to die but it's so heartbreaking to watch. Yamada Takayuki was incredible in this drama. He's such an incredible actor. Ayase Haruka was great in this, too. Props to them both

Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
This drama was really weird. And at the end, very disturbing. Definitely a lot darker than a lot of the other Kimutaku dramas, but I really think he was good in this drama. He definitely showed another side to his acting that is more intense and is capable of being the bad guy. The story really kind of irked me, especially with the revelation towards the end. Not for everyone.

This was the most cheesy thing I've ever seen. Maybe beyond anything I've ever seen. But it was really funny and really cute. Nino, Yamap, and Shun-kun are so adorable.

I really didn't like the overall story to this drama. It was just too weird and unrealistic for me. The acting was not so great either, especially with Yui. Even though I love Tackey, I really dont' recommend this drama.

Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Even though this drama is a lot darker than all the other ones I've seen, it's still really good. I like the story overall and some of the actors performances were really great. I just think Tackey should have showed more emotion on the last episode. He seemed not into his character at the time. And if Eiko had lived, I would have given this a full score but no, she had to die. Really depressing.

Fun Drama with Gorgeous Actors [Rating: 10/10]
This was my first drama that I've watched so it holds a special place in my heart. When I saw the first episode, I thought "You gotta be kidding me." After watching the 2nd and 3rd episodes, I warmed up to it and fell in love with the story. It's so fun and so heartwarming at the same time. It is a little cheesy but so cute!! MatsuJun is awesome. I totally fell in love with him in this drama. He's so good and so adorable, it's awesome. I love the way he portrays Doumyouji so that he actually has a quirky personality. Yes, so many beautiful people in this drama. Especially the F4.

Truly Amazing. One of the best dramas I have seen [Rating: 10/10]
There's really nothing to say except wow. This story is truly inspiring and beautiful. I have never felt this touched before when watching a drama. Aya-san's story is truly breathtaking. She had so much courage in the face of her disease. Props to all the actors and actresses in this series. Everyone became the characters and gave excellent performances. This should be on everyone's MUST SEE list.
Nemureru mori [眠れる森]
Dark, Intense Drama that Leaves You Anticipating f [Rating: 8/10]
I really like this drama. Normally, I would prefer to watch happy, funny shows but this one really grabbed me attention. It's different, that's for sure, and very suspenseful. I really loved the story to it and the plot in general. The end of every episode leaves you wanting more, and you don't want to stop watching. At first, Kimura Takuya seemed kind of stalker creepy but I warmed up to him as I continued to watch the show. All the actors did a really good job in this show. It was very convincing and all of them delivered great performances. I wasn't expecting that ending. It totally shocked and surprised me. I was literally speechless for a long time. And the fact that Minako and Naoki's relationship turned out to be different than a romantic one surprised me also. For a little while, that was also weird/nasty because of how their relationship was before she found out.
Orange Days [オレンジデイズ]
Great drama. Really touching and inspiring... [Rating: 10/10]
Absolutely amazing drama. A very touching and inspiring story about such a diverse group of friends. I love the chemistry between Kai and Sae. On their own they are really complicated people, but they do complete each other. It makes you want to believe in true love and the courage to move forward in times of hopelessness. Shibasaki Kou is so wonderful in this drama. She had me believing there for a second that she was actually deaf. Her performance in this show is brilliant.
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
beautiful drama with wonderful performances [Rating: 10/10]
Before watching the drama, I saw the movie a couple of weeks ago. I really liked the movie and was curious to see how the drama would compare. This drama is one of the best I have seen. It's so touching and so very heartbreaking. Yamada Takayuki and Ayase Haruka both deliver brilliant performances. They not only portrayed the characters wonderfully, but became them. You can feel whatever they are feeling when you watch them perform. This drama shows how now matter how painful situations become, you just have to keep on going and living life. Definitely have a box of tissues with you when you watch this drama. I love it!!
Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [空から降る一億の星]
Different, Intresting, but Flippin' Weird at the S [Rating: 8/10]
Overall, I like this drama because it's a lot different and more intense than the other Kimura Takuya dramas I have previously seen. It's very suspenseful and leaves you wanting more at the end of each episode. What made this drama watchable was not necessarily the plot, but the characters themselves. They are all very complex, quirky, and different in their own ways. Especially Shibasaki Kou and Kimura Takuya's characters. They are both very dark yet can retain that childlikeness to them. What really get me weirded out with this drama was the last couple of episodes, especially ending. A part of me knew it was coming but the whole idea of it kinda creeped me out. A lot. The ending was really sad and depressing, but I think that's the only way you can end this type of drama. I think Kimura Takuya did a really good job in this drama. This shows that he can also play the evil/bad guy, not just the hero/good protagonist all the time. His character was really despicable in this drama but at the same time, he's so damn charming so you cannot help but end up liking him.

Very touching... [Rating: 10/10]
I really enjoyed this drama. It's so touching and heartwarming. I liked watching the relationships between the characters, and the dynamics between them. Very nice story about having the will to live on. The ending totally devastated me though. I was totally reeling from it. Definitely a tear jerker.
