Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Last Christmas [ラストクリスマス]
As mentioned before great chemistry between the leads. Uplifting and great for the holidays. Keep watching this in re-runs and haven't put it down long enough to watch other dramas.
Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]
Summer snow
Tiger & Dragon [タイガー&ドラゴン]
Very original, well done piece of comedy. Abe Sadoyo rules.

Abe Sadao [阿部サダヲ]
Great actor, all around funny and made IWGP, Kisarazu Cat's Eye, and Tiger & Dragon memorable. Hoping to see more of him.
Dohmoto Tsuyoshi [堂本剛]
Like dramas staring him and Ryoko although kinda of get the feeling that Hirosue isn't so comfortable with him.
Namase Katsuhisa [生瀬勝久]
He's the one and only one that made Gokusen that much better than GTO.
Oda Yuji [織田裕二]
Loved Last Christmas staring Oda Yuji & Yada Akiko. I like to see them act in more romance dramas together.
Tanaka Koutaro [田中幸太朗]
He stood out most for me in Sekai no Chuushin. Great at playing the "voice of reason" to Yamada Takayuki. I like Tanaka Koutaro & Yamada Takayuki & Ayase Haruka combo.
Tokiwa Takako [常盤貴子]
Loved her in Beautiful Life. The little details that she puts in her role makes her shine like when she paws shuji pocket for his apartment key.
Yada Akiko [矢田亜希子]
Like to see her & Oda Yuji acting together. Of all the dramas I have seen so far their chemistry is far the best IMHO.

One of the earlier ones I watched. Thought it was funny and got me hook on jdorama. But after seeing more and more dorama this one just no longer impress me.

Too much homage/rip-offs of Disney's Cool Runnings down to the song "I can see clearly now".

Watched it because saw some great acting from Tanaka Koutaro and I like the Tanaka Koutaro & Yamada Takayuki combo.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 1/10 (Watched)
Overrated and poison to humanity. Way way overrated, the mother of all cliches. Rich kid bullies the poor kid in the beginning and fell in love with his/her target by the end. Took place in high school to boot. Wonder if the director had to pay a royalty fee to the manga artist in order to license the Hana Yori Dango title? If he did, then it's kind of stupid to pay for licensing a cliche storyline. Now about the show, lame jokes abound remember Heminyah... Lousy acting. I'm lost for words seeing Oguri Shun sitting cross-legged like a girl while batting his eyes and grating oranges. We all know why the show's popular, it's because fangirls/boys like how pretty Oguri Shun & Matsumoto Jun are. Have those two locked in a room bouncing a ball up and down for 9-10 episodes and there still be tons of fangirls swooning over the show. Anyhow the sad part in all of this is we are sending the message to the producers that they don't have to write interesting, original stories. Instead just pick some lame cliche storyline and cast some pretty boys/girls and voila you got a "masterpiece". What a slap in the face it must be to other hardworking & talented actors/actresses who may not be young & pretty to see such a lame show as Hana Yori Dango getting all the attention. Might as well get plastic surgery to look younger & more beautiful because it seems that's what the audience really wants. Why bother working hard anymore. Alright enough of my Hana Yori Dango hating but just got to get this off of my chest

Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Had low expectations of the show at first because I never heard of Oda Yuji & Yada Akiko and they weren't exactly young and beautiful. But their chemistry/acting won me over in the end. Glad to know there are still shows out there that you can walk in with a frown and walk out with a smile.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Rating: 6/10
Scene of Yamaguchi Tomoko wanting Kimura Takuya to read/not read/read/not read her fiance's letter looked too forced and that kinda killed it for me. Watch a few more episodes and didn't find it interesting enough to continue.
Moto Kare [元カレ]

Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Better than expected. Kinda artsy in execution and put a nice twist on the bully/make over theme.

Currently to Eps. 6. Didn't think I will like it since the casts are largely composed of the elderly and but boy was I wrong. Original storyline, very touching.

Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Didn't want to watch it. Has mixed feelings as whether to continue or not after 1st few minutes. Heard the voice-over narration "That's why I never forget", the chiquita song playing and saw the lone strawberry in the hallway basking in the sunlight. Knew I had to continue...

Tiger & Dragon [タイガー&ドラゴン]
Rating: 10/10
Gangster, mafia, yakuza aren't my thing so for me to give this yakuza/rakugo drama a 10 after watching 6 episodes should tell you how much I adore this jem. And even if the rest of the episodes happened to suck... doesn't matter, it still deservers a 10. Great original masterpiece as expected from the same screenwriter as Kisarazu Cats Eye. Kudos to Abe Sadoyo. Glad to know that the director recognizes his talents as he stared in IGWP, Kisarazu Cats Eye & Tiger & Dragon.
