Antique [アンティーク〜西洋骨董洋菓子店]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
this drama is a real 180 degree difference from the usual jdramas. this story revolves around 4 men and an unique cake shop, Antique. Although this drama may not be as interesting and captivating as other dramas like nobuta wo produce, it does have a special way of plot development. The show with an air of mystery around practically everything and as the show goes, the mystery just uncovers one by one. Each episode can stand by itself and has its own plus points. Oh well, in all a drama recommended for one who doesn't like cliche stories. And naohito was super charming in this drama =)
Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
still watching since this drama is still airing so i shall give the rating later. However, so far it's the drama i enjoy the most=) The plot is basically about this girl who wants to be an air stewardess although her character clashes with the ideal one of an air stewardess. although the plot is not very unique, this drama is nevertheless pretty interesting and hilarious, well definitely brighten up one's day. Quite captivating also. I think aya acts well in this drama, and ryo is just as shuai as ever of course^^
Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Ganbatte is motivating :) It's a high school drama revolving round 5 girls in a girls' rowing team. Ryou looks very good in here ^^ The plot can get quite dry in the middle but well, it's still watchable!
GTO [麻辣教師]
Rating: 9/10
Ah this one is good. About a high school teacher who has super unique ways of dealing with his students, mostly with problematic backgrounds. It's motivational, and hilarious many a times, and well just simply fantastic. A must watch. The only drawback is the ending isn't done very well. Nevertheless, you won't want to stop halfway, trust me. A good drama to begin your jdrama journey with :) MUST WATCH.
H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Those who love baseball will love this drama since it's about this sport! A high school love story, pretty touching at times. However, i can't stand hiro using haruka as a substitute. it is so evil. bleargh.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
at first i wondered what's the big hoo haa over this drama. so i watched it and WHOA.. it kept me satisfied right till the end. Well done to shun and jun as well as the main actress for the good acting !!
Hana Yori Dango Season 2 [花より男子]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
10/10 for this!! It's really satisfying watching it. I was a little afraid this drama would become draggy and boring but wow was i wrong! The ending is one of the best around, PLS WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T!
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e [花ざかりの君たちへ]
Rating: 7/10
an okay high school drama.. didn't really like shun's acting in here but ikuta toma did his job well :D not a must-watch though.
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Very touching drama. It's called one litre of tears in english, and well i seriously think the tears i shed added up to one litre :'( This is a true story about a girl who suffered from an incurable neurological disease, how the disease changed her life, and how she managed to look on the bright side and cope with the disease. Ryou's in it too ^^
Kindaichi shonen no Jikenbo (2005) [金田一少年の事件簿]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
average mystery drama with some flaws and ridiculous parts. kame boosted my rating up though :)
Kisarazu Cat's Eye [木更津キャッツアイ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
It's the most unique drama i have ever watched.. Though most of the drama made me go "EH!?!" and "OHHH" when they finally do the flashback, i think the concept for this drama is really original and commendable. Good acting by characters too ^^ the only bad thing was the main character totally didn't look like he got cancer -.-
Kurosagi [クロサギ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
good acting by yamapi. Story is basically about kurosagi, a swindler who cheats other swindlers as a form of revenge for his family killed due to swindlers. The plot is hard to comprehend at times though. looking forward to the sequel (if there is one).
Last Friends [ラスト・フレンズ]
dropped this drama halfway since i got bored.
Liar Game [ライアーゲーム]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
WOOTS just finished this a few minutes ago!! It's WOWing. A little like kurosagi in the sense that the players had to go around "lying" and tricking other people. Basically a game with 4 rounds, and different game rules each round where people are supposed to cheat each other.. Though similar to kurosagi, it's much more intellectually satisfying. U have to think together with the plot in order not to get left behind going "huh? i don't get it" Nice ending too! i like it!
Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
an okay drama. Watchable but nothing incredibly interesting or exciting. A story about 4 brothers falling for one girl. Watch only if you have nothing better to do or you just want a dose of young, feminine yamapi ^^
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
A good mix of laughter and tears (both from laughing too much and being touched:'( ) The story centres around how Maki, the to-be head of a gang, is sent back to high school and the way he copes with high-school life, love, friendship and being torn when he has to choose between his high school life and his real life. Definitely a must watch! If there's only one drama you wish to watch for this year (2006), watch MBMH! You won't regret it:)
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
yay. the first drama i gave a 10 to. watching this drama had been so satisfying. It really shows the many challenges in high school life and how 3 friends stuck together and pulled through in the end. Although Shuji and akira's main intention was to "remake" nobuta, I think Shuji, in particular, gained a lot in understanding the true meaning of friendship, and gaining 2 such real friends. I really enjoyed pi's performance in this drama, the story would have been so much more boring without him :) Kame and maki were good too of course. Meaningful plot, great actors, what more could you ask for? School-goers esp, will be able to relate to this drama and i guarantee you will enjoy it.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
simply awesome. very satisfying and it renewed my love for music and piano :D chiaki senpai is too charismatic for words.
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The first jdrama i watched. Was a great impact on me and i cried quite a bit too (maybe it's just me lah). Love story revolving around the ice hockey game. Very touching, and motivational too. Highly recommended to watch.
Proposal Daisakusen [プロポーズ大作戦]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Yamapi's acting definitely improved in this drama :D He's much better with facial emotions now. *thumbs up* however, i gave this drama a 7 because.. i didn't really like the overall message portrayed. I think tada sensei deserves better too :)
Sapuri [サプリ]

well watched the first episode and gave up. not my type of drama and i have no intention of completing it. since i didn't complete it, i won't rate it :)
Stand UP!!
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
the first time i attempted to watch this drama, i gave up at the first episode. the second time i attempted, i gave up after watching half of the second episode. but wow, am i glad that i attempted this drama a third time (this time jumping straight to the fifth episode) this drama's episode 1-4 seriously s*cked big time i would give it a rating of 1/10. however from episode 5 onwards, the drama finally picked up it's plot and got me addicted. I loved the interaction between the characters and was entertained by how loserly funny the 4 guys were. Great acting by pi, shun, nino and hiroki :) And suzuki anne of course! so overall i give it a 7/10. It's a great drama that challenges the meaning of love and sex. Try it! (just skip straight to episode 5 though)
Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
skipped 3 episodes but i can still manage to catch the story. well, lousy plot (as compared to other dramas), everything is so cliche and messy. i didn't like kyoko's character too. so act cute and fake. oh yousuke and rina were not bad though :) better than the lead characters.
