Gokusen [ごくせん] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) It was pretty exciting to watch at first. But then I realized it got pretty repetitive and it was the same thing episode after episode. She is always helping someone, giving them awe inspiring speeches. Gets kind of old after a while.
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん２] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) Ehhh... same as the first one. not too great after a while.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子] Pretty Good. [Rating: 7/10] I must admit, this is a pretty good series. But it was a little too short... =//
The main girl was very cute. Although I didn't like the main guy until I watched another drama ("Kimi Wa Petto") with him in it. He's pretty cute too.
Overall it was good. But I think the Taiwanese drama series was much better than this.
Kimi wa Petto [きみはペット] Not bad. [Rating: 8/10] This drama... is kind of weird and unrealistic. lol. But it was good nonetheless. Takeshi Goda was very cute in this drama.
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件] FANTASTIC. [Rating: 10/10] This is an extremely good Japanese drama. I must say it is the best drama I have watched so far, even better than the Taiwanese drama "Meteor Garden", in my opinion.
Anyone who says that this drama is disturbing/taboo must be a close-minded Christian conformist. It shouldn't really affect you that much, because after all it is just a story. And it will probably stay that way for a while, because society is afraid of changes. But when you watch drama series like these, you have to approach them with no prejudices and biases. And maybe put yourself in their place and just think about it for a little bit. Most people just look at it and just say "that's just wrong". But they never seek to understand before they judge. Like Michi says in the drama "he just happens to be 17".
Anyways, that was just for the disturb viewers.
This drama really made me cry. Such pure love and no one can understand. It's sad. My favorite and also my most hated scene is the beautiful ending... because there's two broad ways you can interpret the ending..
1.) Hiraku was just dreaming, and Michi never really did wake up.
2.) Hiraku wasn't dreaming, and Michi really DID wake up.
I kind of go towards him dreaming.. and Michi doesn't really wake up.. because of the song... it's so sad...
"You are always gonna be my love
Even if I fall in love with someone else once again
I'll remember to love, you taught me how
You are always gonna be the one
Now it's still a sad love song
Until I'm able to sing a new song
Time stood still, but it's trying to move once more
Full of things I don't want to forget
I'll surely be crying tomorrow at this time
I'll be thinking of you
You will always be inside my heart
There's always a place just for you
I hope that I have a place in your heart, too
Now and forever you are still the one
Now it's still a sad love song
Until I'm able to sing a new song"
It's like Hikaru is singing the song to Michi.. depressing. haha.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース] .. [Rating: 6/10] This was an okay drama. It didn't blow me away. It was just.. okay. =/ hahaha. The ending is AWFUL. It would have been better if they had thought of a better ending.
