ScrappedShinigami's drama votes (8)
Bloody Monday [ブラッディ・マンデイ]
Had to vote for it now I have finished watching it, it is just such an amazing show. The suspense and twists are just so addictive and it has such an interesting storyline. I thought it was all well acted and all of the characters were well developed. Haruma acted Fujimaru very well, better than I expected he was the perfect choice for the role and his little sister was adorable. My favourite character was Kirishima Goro on charge of the running of 'Third I' his character went through a roller coaster of emotions and Yoshizawa Hisashi played him so well, he was the character I favoured the most out of the show, but the rest of the cast aren't to be overlooked. Kano I took a liking too after the 2nd ep even though he has a rough personality, deep down he's a nice guy. I really liked Minami too and she's so pretty! Well done to all the bad guys too, J and Maya were particularly annoying, but that's perfect for a bad guy and K just took the cake, but I really didn't like the character of K if I am being honest :P Anyway a truly amazing drama! Hopefully there will be a special or something. I shall probably watch this again soon and have already recommended it to most of my friends =D
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
One of my favourites! And my first KimuTaku show. My favourite aspect of the show was the relationship between Shinkai (KimuTaku) and his "Sempai" (the antagonist) Kouda (Tsutsumi) and how it developed throughout. It had the most perfect ending! EVERYTHING was tied up! Oh and it really made me wanna be a Pilot XD
Karei naru Ichizoku [華麗なる一族]
One of the most powerful and memorable dramas I have ever seen! A FANTASTIC cast. An extremely clever story and a very unexpected twist at the end. It may have made me cry a lot, which usually loses points in my voting system, but this drama left such an impression on me, I had to vote for it!
Liar Game [ライアーゲーム]
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Had to go up there because it's one of the funniest shows I ever saw! Putting Nagase in the role of Maki was an awarding winning choice. His acting and facial expressions are priceless. It had me laughing until my sides split!!!
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Romance, Comedy & Classical Music... what more could you ask for? This is an amazing show! (My favourite -in fact.) Ueno and Tamaki had amazing chemistry, it was really well acted and the show had a great ending considering the manga is not yet done <3
Remote [リモート]
The Quiz Show 2 [ザ・クイズショウ 2]
Had to chose this as one of my faves after watching it. Such a fantastic idea for the show and the casting was perfect. I just really wanna buy the boxset now ^^ The acting was good and the main 2 characters improved dramatically through out the show. The emotions shown between Kamiyama and Honma at the end were just amazing. The supporting cast are not to be overlooked either the characters such as Saejima and Reina, all the staff, even the guests added perfectly to the show ^^

ScrappedShinigami's artiste votes (10)
Fujiki Naohito [藤木直人]
First came to my attention in 1 Litre of Tears, I just loved his character, I have watched many dramas/ movies with him in since and he never fails to make me swoon :P plus I like his portrayls of his characters =D
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉]
Before wathching Good Luck, I'd heard of him but not seen him in anything. He totally won me over with his performance, he's a very likable and charismatic actor. His best performance so far for me was in Karei-Naru Ichizoku, he proved what a fantastic actor he is in that show!
Maya Miki [真矢ミキ]
I've seen her in quite a few things now and she's very adaptable I have seen her play the stern and strict Mikami in Attention Please, the crazy Kawamura in Himotsu no Hanazono, the kind but workaholic Mom in the Quiz Show 2 and many more, everytime she has managed to pull off complicated roles well, she's good to watch ^^
Sakurai Sho [櫻井翔]
He's actually very good, I've not taken much notice of him before (prolly because of the hype) but his performance in The Quiz Show 2 really caught me. He portrayed some fantastic emotions in that show, he really played the part amazingly well!!! I had seen him and noted his performance in Yamada Taro before but his performance in the quiz show 2 was just outstanding! So now I will watch stuff because he's in it ^^
Takenaka Naoto [竹中直人]
He always stands out in the dramas he plays in, he is such a good actor and very funny I just had to give him a vote. Some of my faves of his roles that I have seen are as Streseman in Nodame and Jane in Good Luck. Superb performances all around ^^
Tamaki Hiroshi [玉木宏]
A Gorgeous actor and very talented! It was his role in Nodame Cantabile that made me notice him. I'd seen him in other shows before but his talent truly shined in this one. A fantastic actor with a lot of charm! I see many roles for him in the future.
Tsutsumi Shinichi [堤真一]
I still can't believe that it's the same actor who played in Good Luck as Lunch no Joou. He has unbelievable acting talent! It was his coolness and ease in the role of Kouda in Good Luck (After watching Lunch no Joou) that made me really appreciate him. Even though he was the antagonist I could completely understand his character.
Ueno Juri [上野樹里]
There aren't many female actresses that I truly appreciate. But Ueno is a rare gem in acting talent. She's a likable actress and can pull off both funny and angst. I was first introduced to her in Nodame Cantabile, which she was fantastic in! But since have seen her in other things such as Engine where she proved to me that she isn't a one trick pony!
Ueto Aya [上戸彩]
It's her hyperactiveness and enthusiasm in her roles that made me like her. She may not be as great at pulling off the heartless killer look (Azumi) thanks to her sweetness, but she has the ability to make you cry and laugh in her many roles. Yoko in Attention Please was the PERFECT part for her!!!
Yoshizawa Hisashi [吉沢悠]
Absolutely LOVED his role in Bloody Monday so I had to vote for him really, he did such a fantastic job and portrayed such a difficult character. I started off thinking he was just another side character, then I got annoyed with him after one scene early on in the series, but after when he was alone and showed what he was really feeling I began to warm to him. His character Kirishima was so likable and real so he has to be on my top just for that :) He was also VERY amusing in Yamada Taro as a completely different character :) rabu

(Watched)
Even though it has one of my favourite actors, I don't feel really as if I have the drive to watch anymore. The investigations are a bit boring and the focus seems to be primarily on the youngest sister when the show is supposed to be about all the sisters...
Ame to Yume no atoni [雨と夢の後に]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
A fantastic show and a real emotional rollercoaster. Sawamura Ikki is a really fantasitc and charasmatic actor, I really felt for hsi character he made me laugh and cry, he was really fantastic in his role. All the supporting cast did a fantastic job too, there wasn't a character that I did not like or that I thought didn't do a good job. Like when I watched 1 Litre of Tears I knew the end was inevitable, which made it all the more heart renching. Anyway a really fantastic show definitely underrated and definitely deserves a watch <3
Atashinchi no Danshi [アタシんちの男子]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Very light, very fun, lovable characters! All the Okura family were unique in their own little way and they were all so likable. I enjoyed the ending, it was a little open but it implied how things would end and how things would continue so I was happy ^_^ it would be really cool if they made some kinda special in future =D but either way I am happy. Sho x Chisato <3 so cute.
Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
I enjoyed this dorama a lot more than I expected. I'd put off buying it for the longest time because I thought, I couldn't really enjoy a sports drama but as soon as I put it on I was hooked. It was a really great series, I really enjoyed Aya's character and how she developed. There was one twist near the end I didn't see coming and it really quite upset me. It'san emotional series it made me happy, angry and it made me really cry all at the same time. Definitely worth a watch in my opinion ^_^
Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Absolutely LOVED this drama!!! I am sooo glad that I listened to all the good reviews people had given this. I must admit before I watched this I was put off because Ryo was the main guy in it O.O but now alas I am fickle... and have become a bit of a Ryo fan! I really liked his character in this and his character's Chemistry with Aya. (Who was fantastic in this drama) she really made it for me cute (I'm jealous ^__^) and hillarious! FANTASTIC drama! I'd recommend it to everyone!!!
Bijo ka Yajuu [美女か野獣]
Rating: 5/10 (Bought)
I've only watched the first episode so far. It seems like an okay series but it's missing that spark that usually gets me to finish a show in one go. Maybe I'll go back to it at some stage, but I have more exciting doramas to watch right now O_O
Bloody Monday [ブラッディ・マンデイ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend it to anyone. The cast were perfect the storyline was engaging and suspenseful, there were twists around every corner and all questions were tied up nicely and answered by the finale. It's a roller coaster of emotions but it is such a wonderful drama. Hats off to all the cast. My favourite character was Kirishima Goro played by Yoshizawa Hasashi he was so likable to me and he and the rest of the cast kept me thoroughly enthralled =D
Bloody Monday 2 [ブラッディ・マンデイ-シーズン2-]
Brother Beat [ブラザー☆ビート]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
I really had no idea what to expect with this drama. When I started watching the first episode I immediately liked Tetsuji's character and when we were introduced to his first love interest I thought oh no I don't like her. But thankfully by the end of the episode it turned out that the love interest was someone else and that was Ryoko's character who was absolutely adorable. (I really liked her) This is a really sweet series it has some amazingly cute romantic scenes that made me happy. It's mainly a family drama, about how this family turned out without a father. All the characters went through great character development through the whole series. I think what made Tetsuji my favourite character was his character change, he was so work focused to begin with, but by the end he seemed to have realised that there were more important things. (It also helped that he was pretty ^_^) Overall a really good series! I'm glad I saw it through to the end

A really great show, I thorougly enjoyed it, makes it all the more sweeter to know that it was based on a true story *sways* kya how cute! Anyway the characters were enjoyable, I loved Hayami Mokomichi as the protective brother, I keep inadvertantly finding dramas with him in, maybe fate is trying to tell me something! Anyway I loved the soundtrack I must find it now, sounded very 80's <3 A really heart warming story and it wasn't painful at all, definitely worth a watch very very funny and very sweet ^_^
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
This show suprisedme. I had put off watching it for so long, but finally caved because YamaPi is in it, so I gave it a chance and I found myself REALLY enjoying it! I thought it would be another GTO but it wasn't it was different and interesting. I loved all the characters and their growth and I liked how the ending wasn't predictable right until the last second I did not know what was going to happen, but I was happy with what did very happy. I loved the relationship between Pi's character and his childhood friend that was VERY sweet. Anyway a very enjoyable show I'll probably sit though it again some time soon <3
Engine [エンジン]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Once again KimuTaku picked a winner! This was fun, sweet, sad, it had action, drama, romance. It was a wonderful idea and it was great to see how Kimu's character Jiroh changed after his time at the children's home and how his character changed the children and other adults there. It was unusual and interesting to see Kimu play a character that was constantly being looked down on by others and yet never gave up! Gambatte Jiroh-nii-san XD

It's not the best dorama I have ever seen but it certainly is fun (in my opinion) Fujiki Naohito makes this series for me he is so very funny and lovable and I love the random English he comes out with (which is suprisingly good) I especially love the way he says 'what?' <3
Garasu no kamen 1 [ガラスの仮面]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I thought it was a pretty interesting idea for a showw, I love shows based off animes. And I felt the actors did a good job on this one. Even though it's pretty old now it's still good. I really wanna see the 2nd series now ^-^
Garasu no kamen 2 [ガラスの仮面 2]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
It's a very good series even though it's old, there are a few characters in this series that are absolutely annoying and deserve a big slap! Was absolutely gutted about the end of ep 9 tho :(... just can't get a break ʁ Apart from that though, all pretty good ^^

Watched this after watching HYD because MatsuJun had pulled me in ^_^ I really loved this show, after reading about it I wasn't overly fussed, but once I started watching it I just couldn't stop. It's a real feel good show!

Rating: 5/10 (Bought & Watched)
This had big boots to fill after the first one left such an impression. I did really enjoy this show but I really felt MatsuJun not being there, I missed his character and so couldn't enjoy it as much as the first. (It was still as funny as the first and whoo It has Jin and Kame ^_^)
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Definitely one of my favourite dramas now. I never expected it to be so good, I've always skipped over it in the past. But I caught a random clip on YouTube, when I was searching for something totally different. I became intrigued and so brought it and man am I so glad I did. It kept me occupied for hours once I put it on, I had to sit through it all, I got up many hours later with a stiff back! I loved the relationships three in particular, obviously the main romance between Shinkai and Ogawa, that was very sweet and not too heavy. I loved the relatiobship between Kouda and Togashi and last but by no means least I really really liked the relationship between Kouda and Shinkai. Kouda may seem to hate Shinkai the most to start with but as the show progresses it's obvious that Kouda sees in Shinkai who he used to be and wants to guide him to bring out the potential he know he has. Overall the show was exciting, romantic and a lot of un. All the actors played their part well, the acting convinced me (but then I am no great critique). Only one character annoyed me and that was Rina's character... she was ok by the end though. Definitely worth a watch, definitely one of my favourites!!! <3
GTO [麻辣教師]
Rating: 7/10
A really good JDorama! I watched this because it's so hyped up and whenever you get a new School Teacher drama it is ALWAYS compared to this. I must say I thought it was really fantastic. He made me laugh so much the class made me really angry at times and where I felt I could never forgive Miyabi... of course when she turned herself around I forgave her right away... I'm so fickle ha ha. Onizuka and Fuyutsuki made a really cute couple, I think it's really sweet that they're married in real life. Anyway definitely worth a watch in my opinion!!!

HYD was my first Jdorama I was so excited to watch it and it never let me down. It's a fantastic show. Domyouji (MatsuJun) really grew on me as a character, I started off not particularly liking him but by the end I absolutely loved him ^_^ I got this because I was always intrigued by the anime but never got around to buying it! I got this instead, thus starting my Jdorama obsession.

Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
Not as good as the first but still worth a watch and I still enjoyed it very much. It was nice to see how everyone had moved on and developed since the first show and the ending was really sweet and well desrved... especially after the last couple of painful episodes. MatsuJun made me laugh so much in places his character can be agressive and arguementitive one moment and hyperactive and childish the next. Anyway good show, fantastic ending! <3
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e [花ざかりの君たちへ]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Ok so there were some things I really loved about this dorama and there were other things that I wasn't so keen on. I was happy with the overall arc of the story though I feel that due to it's tendency to veer off from the original story, it wasn't as smooth as it could have been. Maki and Shun were really cute together as Sano and Ashiya but their chemistry had nothing on that of the characters in the manga. In fact I think that the chemistry seemed stronger between Nakatsu and Ashiya. Saying that I was still happy with how it ended so I'm not going to complain ^___^

Another KimuTaku great. No wonder it pulled in such high ratings!!! It's funny and serious, it's spirited and has a bit of romance. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought, I was put off initially about people going on about the open ending, but it was not half as bad as I'd thought, I have seen endings a LOT more open. Anyway look forards to the new movie in September ^_^ Favourite episode... 9 ^_^
Himitsu no Hanazono [ヒミツの花園]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
I'm giving it an 8 because it was a really good dorama that I really enoyed. The characters were well acted and developed well through the show. I absolutely loved Yamamoto Yusuke's character he was too adorable for words Bless him and his unrequited love he deserved a hug (and I am more than happy to supply XD). I think suprisingly out of the four brothers my favourite was the youngest Hinata. I liked how he grew. When he first met Kayo he wasn't the nicest to her and was very anti-social but by the end she was the one he ran to when he was upset, it was sweet. Oh and I loved Kayo x Wataru... the whole Kayo x Wataru/ Satoshi thing was enjoyable to watch. Wataru's character was somewhat sweet... but by golly he could be harsh when he wanted! Overall a great series! If I can buy it in the future I will! Well worth my money.

This was a really really good drama. Good as it was I don't think I could put myself through it again, it is so very sad. But to all people who haven't watched it before, you should see it at least once. It's a really touching drama, really sweet and extremely emotional! This was the first dorama I have seen Eriki Sawajiri act in and she really played the role fantastically! Ryo was Kakkoii!!! And I really loved Fujiki Naohito's character he was fantastic and sweet and caring and I want one ^__^ Overall a great series! If you watch it make sure you have a couple of toilet rolls at the ready!
Jigoku Shoujo [地獄少女]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
It wasn't really fantastic but there were certain aspects of the show that I did really enjoy. The music for one I thought was superb, very creepy it gave me goosebumps but it was good XD. The actors were all fun to watch, there wasn't a very strong storyline but what storyline there was I did enjoy. The only thing that was slightly off about the show was repetitiveness once you'd seen the first episode you knew how all the others were going to pan out. All the same it didn't stop me enjoying it. Pretty good show just not fantastic! <3
Karei naru Ichizoku [華麗なる一族]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
An absolutely fantastic drama! This is definitely one of the most underrated dramas out there, I think because of it's setting and dark storyline. It's one of the most powerful dramas that I have ever seen. The acting was all top notch. (Another star performance from KimuTaku) I found the whole Father-Son-Grandfather story fascinating, I was expecting what happened in episode 8 from the very start but the twist at the very end (in regards to this triangle) was VERY unexpected and extremely upsetting. It may not have made me cry all the way through like 1 Litre of Tears, but the last episode of this show made me cry harder than any other show I have ever seen. It won't be everyone's cup of tea (Definitely NOT a fangirl drama) but I really enjoyed it!!! (It's up there with the best in my opinion)

Grrrrr I can't watch the last ep but the rest of the series was pretty fun, I love the characters and the cases are always exciting as they start off seeming supernatural. I enjoyed it but the only thing I dislike about these kind of dramas is that they don't have strong on going storylines. It's good if you wanna watch a detective show with a different investigaton every ep. I however like there to be an on going theme. Good fun though ^^

Loved this! This was the third MatsuJun drama I watched (when I was going through his drama list and watching almost everything with him in ha ha) It was great to see him playing such a completely different character to his character in say HYD or Gokusen. He really pulled it off he was fantastic as Momo, he made a great dog! XD Cute drama! I like!!! <3

I really enjoyed this drama. I was going through a dry patch with Jdoramas, I were watching a lot of shows that I didn't particularly enjoy, but then this show came along and I really really liked it. Toko is adorable, I love her determined attitude, she does some cringe worthy things to get her guy but HEY they seem to work on Yuji you gotta hand it to the girl XD. This is the first Tsuyoshi drama I have seen and wow... he's really very good ^_^ I'm more of a Koichi fan personally but Tsuyoshi really won me over in this show, I'm glad I gave it a shot! Yosh!

I've only watched the first 3 episodes so far so I can't rate it properly yet. It seems like a decent enough series it's been pretty interesting so far. Not a series I'm going to go off and rave about, but something nice and easy to sit back and watch. I love that he never stops eating XD classic!

I really liked this drama, some of the characters got infuriating in places and Nao's gullibility was a bit annoying at times, but that was part of her character and if she had changed then there wouldn't be any point to the story so I managed to bite my tongue :P It has a really nice message to it and surprised me with a pretty positive ending, well bar the random last 30 secs, which... yeah. Anyway really enjoyed the series it was very good and well acted to I think ^^

Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
It was a sweet drama and good for a first time watch (though I don't see a great deal of replay value). All the actors did a great job, I warmed to all their personalities, even the bad ones. Loved Pi for his part he was just adorable as the youngest of the siblings, loved his personality. The drama definitely wasn't lacking in comedy, it really had me screaming several times. Overall not a bad drama, the ending was left a little too untied for my liking, after everything that had happened I thought I'd come out with a more definite finish.

Really good show, pretty short and left with a few ends untied so I assume they will do a sequel or special or something. I did enjoy the ending though it was funny, love Tsukumo's laugh XD There were a LOT of big names playing the cameo roles I think Gackt and Nakama Yukie had the most impressive parts. It was a fun series and it seemed a little different from Kimu's normal roles, he was quite quirky in it I liked it :)

Wah I really enjoyed this drama it was light-hearted and sweet. Nagase was fantastic as Yu-Chan it always made me laugh a little in shock that he could go from being the cool, hunky Sakuraba Yuchiro to the geeky, uber cute, track suit wearing Yu-chan. He was funny and adorable. This is the first drama I have seen Yuko Takeuchi in and she was absolutely adorable. It's hard not to love her. All the supporting cast were fantastic too by the end of the show I really liked and felt for all of the characters. It was interesting to see how people changed as Yuchiro touched their lives. Anyway it's a must watch, it's not too deep and not too angsty (the angst is upped in the last couple of eps but it's nothing really major). Just nice light-hearted family fun! ^_^

I absolutely LOVED this show, all of it! Some people did not like the ending, but I did! Nagase was absolutely hillarious!!! And he was also cute, cool and hard as nails all at the same time! There was not one character that I did not like in this drama. A lot of people did not like Sakurakouji but I thought he was sweet and unselfish and I just wanna give him a hug. Nagase's relationship with Hikari was adorable! I LOVED his stutter... and the lumber jack! ... Bless him XD I definitely recommend this dorama to anyone who likes light-hearted, fun, comedies. I really really enjoyed it, after having such high hopes for this series I am so glad that I was not left disappointed, not even for a second.

I don't know I can't really score it any lower if I'm being fair because I have only watched 2 and a half episodes, but I really can't be bothered to watch anymore. I fell asleep in the first episode... I guess it's just not my cup of tea, it has potential but the whole feel of the drama didn't do anything for me. Maybe I could have enjoyed it further on but I am really not motivated to try...

If I had realised how much I was gonna enjoy this dorama I would have put it in my DVD player the second I got it. In fact I had this several days before I actually put it on and once I started watching it I was hooked! I'm so glad I brought this on a whim, it is extremely funny and I just LOVE how the relationship develops between Nodame and Chiaki. It's really heart warming. There were moments that really made me 'squee' Anyway a darned good show very funny and cute and Tamaki is so handsome <3 ^__^

I really enjoyed this drama. Like NC I got it on a whim and like NC it really suprised my, I very much enjoyed it. It was for most part a fantastic show, it was great to see Keisuke Koide in something without the afro XD (haven't seen him in anything apart from NC) I couldn't believe it was the same person his character was completely different, I guess it proves he's a good actor. It was my second Kyoko Hasegawa drama, she impressed me in this too. It was a very, VERY cute love story. The end seemed a little rushed? Open and in general I didn't like it! Well ... that's my opinion. The rest of the show had a nice pace, the onlything that stops me giving it a higher mark is I'd like to see an SP or something, just to make me completely satisfied, tie things up! Anyway a great show! Glad I watched it <3

A really sweet and touching drama. Well developed characters and it didn't bother me at all that the female lead did not speak. Loved Shohei and Akane they were very cute And a really nice ending <3

Another fantastic KimuTaku drama! I never gave this a chance in the past, but after watching Good Luck recently I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt... and I am so glad that I did! It's a really fantastic drama. Well acted all around and the chemistry between Aki and Halu is top notch! It's hard to believe it's not real <3 Great show, great ending, lots of fun, definitely worth a watch!

I'd mark it as 1 but I haven't seen the whole thing so I feel I shouldn't... I had to turn this off the acting was terrible and it just really didn't interest me!

A really sweet dorama. To be honest I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did... maybe that's why I did enjoy it. When I start watching a show with high expectations I generally come out disappointed. All the characters were likable suprisingly a female character in this show was my favourite *shock horror* and not only a female but the other woman (kind of) I really liked Chiko I thought she was adorable. I was happy to see Matsuda Shota in another dorama, I looked forwards to seeing him in other stuff after HanaDan and here I found my chance (though a complete suprise when he walked into the show... but a nice suprise XD) Aibu Saki was likable I really liked her character as did I like Hayami he did a great job as the lead (their characters were sweet together) A really good show! ^_^

Wah! This has fast become one of my favourite Jdoramas. Koichi is FANTASTIC in it! I'm so glad I finally got to see him in a drama he is such a Prince! (He was great as steely cool Himuro) Kyoko was adorable in her role as Kurumi I find it hard not to like her. I LOVED the chemistry between Himuro and Kurumi, that's what really made the drama for me ^_^

Watched episode 1... really didn't like it, it's supposed to be an investigation drama the investigation lasted all of 2 minutes and the rest of the time I had to put up with pretty bad acting when they were trying to convey scenes from shounen-ai manga, I told the storyline to my friend and he laughed, when I told them the reason they lived in a huge mansion he laughed more... not intending to watch anymore ><

I've watched most of this show and there are times when I just can't turn it off and times when I just can't be bothered. The main characters are all really fantastic in their roles! What really made me get this was that Odagiri Jo was in it, I love him and he did a fantastic job as Saito!!! Saito was my favourite character (not that I'm biased) I really liked Shingo as Isami I really felt for him and Koji made a fantastic Hijikata!

I thought it was a really good dorama, it surprised me actually, I wasn't expecting to enjoy it quite as much as I did. The characters were all likable and well fleshed out and it was a very touching drama. Didn't see how it was going to end until about 10 minutes into the last episode when something clicked ha ha.

It's a cute enough dorama but I have not yet found the motivation to finish it. I here a lot of people raving about it, so maybe I should force myself to finish it to see what all the fuss is about.

I haven't watched much of it yet, just the first 3 eps, but it seems fun enough. Horita Maki is really adorable in it, this is the first time I've seen her in this type of role, usually she plays the more quieter characters, but in this show she is quite lively and adorable. I am quite intrigued to see how this pans out.
The Quiz Show [ザ・クイズショウ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
First of all... year of showing was 2008 ^^ Ok so een though the story was very similar to the 2nd it also had its differences, this one for a start is much darker. The acting was pretty well done very intense last couple of episodes. The only one down side for me and I've mentioned it a few times, is the length of the eps, they are just over 20 minutes, it means you have to continue over 2 eps or things aren't looked into as deep as I would have wished. The 2nd series stuck to the standard 45 minute eps so things were a bit more meaty and there were more characters to flesh out rather than just the main 2. Overall a good series and definitely worth a watch ^^ kudos to Yamanobe and Tazaki, very well done =D

Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Yes! Only ended up watching this cos I was bored searching streaming sites and saw a poster for this, it looked interesting so I caught the first ep. And my gosh it's good ^^ wow I really loved it, the whole idea of a game show where you get the prize if you confess, very nice ^^ I thought Sho as Kamiyama was brilliant I just loved his character so much and it was like he was playing 2 different characters on and off stage. Yu did a great job of making me hate him for the majority of the show :P but I'll forgive him. The supporting cast were great too and it was good to see the leads from the original with a nice lil cameo ^^ Would definitely recommend this one =D

Really good show, very emotional made me cry pretty much every episode because it's dealing with death, it was a very powerful show and I felt it was also really well acted. Episode 8 was the most emotional for me as it made me cry for the guy who tried to save the boy but the parents didn't wanna know, it also made me cry in relief for Endo Yuya's character I was so scared for him! And he played the part so well. Kaji and Aki were really sweet together, would love to see an SP or something where she returns from her month in America so they could tie things up :P Anyway, yeah really good show, I enjoyed it a lot, just my eyes are a tad sore now ^^;

Can't really give it a proper score as I've only seen the first couple of eps and the end ^^;;; the show annoyed me a bit though, most of the characters seemed pretty shallow and I wasn't driven to wanna watch anymore.
Yamada Taro Monogatari [山田太郎ものがたり]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Just finished this, it was a fun drama wasn't taxing on the Brain the storyline was simple but sweet. I'm not a fan of Nino at all but his character was sweet and likable. I absolutely LOVED the relationship between Torri and Ehara I could be biased because Ehara was played by Yoshizawa Hisashi but they were just so funny and so cute at the same time ^0^ It's not exciting enough to give it a higher mark but it's sweet and entertaining in my opinion =D

Yoshitsune [義経]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
I still haven't managed to finish this I'm about 5/6 episodes shy of watching the whole thing. It is a good historical series but by golly it made me cry so many times! Takki did great job as Yoshitsune he really brought the character to life. I really felt I could understand what he was feeling and most of the time it made me want to cry ^_^ wah! Great Show! But a one time watch I don't think I could put myself through it again... saying that it is pretty long ^^;
