Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
One of the 1st jdrama that I got a chance to see..and has remained with me as a fond bitter-sweet memory...Tokiwa Takako has proved to me that she's one of Japan's most capable actress....Unforgettable and Great!!!!!!!!!
Churasan [ちゅらさん]
Great series with a great story line and cast!! One of the first series I happened to see..made me love Okinawa and its culture!!!!!!!Got emotionally involved with Eri's situation and could'nt wait for the next episode.......Really appreciated the "younger" Kano Miho and Konishi Minami......even enjoyed crybaby Yamada......and Obaa was really loveable......
Engine [エンジン]
I really like this series because of the great cast...especially the children!!! The relationship beween Kimura and the children was really tender and made this series enjoyable....a mixture of sadness and happiness brought this series home for me!
Jyoou no Kyoushitsu [女王の教室]
A great cast of future stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
This is a classic in Japanese Tv...even though it is now almost ten years since it came out !!!My over all favorite..Yamaguchi Tomoko cannot be surpassed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Medaka [めだか]
Mimura has the most outstanding smile!!Her face justs lights up and makes my heart melt!!!
Ruri no shima [瑠璃の島]
Another great cast!!!!Okinowa...my favorite place in Japan...Love the music and dancing.
Suna No Utsuwa [砂の器]
This drama could very well be my no.1 Japanese show...Spell-bounding!!!!!Sensational camera work to magnificant music!!!!No words can describe how awesome this drama was!!!!
Tokyo Wankei [東京湾景]
Need I say more ...Nakama Yukie!!!!!

oldasianguy's artiste votes (9)
Aoi Yu [蒼井優]
She basically does the majority of her acting in the movies...but she was in Dr Kato 2006(TV) and was adoreable...Good acting and an ability to be in many movies makes her an interesting person...Very attractive actress...seems like ages since she was in Hana & Alice... She has this mixture of maturity & innocence.....
Ayase Haruka [綾瀬はるか]
In my opinion the most attractive actress in Japan...Originally there was a mystic about her...until she displayed her down to earth side of her in "Hotaru no Hikari".....A wonderful sexy actress..with the cutest eyes.!!!
Mimura [ミムラ]
That smile!!
Miyazaki Aoi [宮?あおい]
So great in all her movies....sensational in TV's Atsu Hime....Took me a while to appreciate her acting skills but the more I see of her work the more I'm in awe of her....!!!!
Nagasawa Masami [長沢まさみ]
She turned me on in the special "Butterfly in the Ganges"......Lots of people hate on her...but I don't see it...I think her acting is great.....
Nakama Yukie [仲間由紀恵]
Probably Japan's most versatile actress...very comical...and talented First saw her in the movie "Love & Pop" when she was in her teens.. and has developed into a very popular star.. pretty eyes!!!
Takeuchi Yuko [竹内結子]
Wonderful!!!! Most refreshing..girl next door type of personality!! Has great camera charisma......For some reason I trust her..and would want her by my side...
Tokiwa Takako [常盤貴子]
She's very talented...and in her career is the one actress who has a variety of different difficult roles...probably shows much more emotion then the average Japanese actress.
Yamaguchi Tomoko [山口智子]
All time favorite...She got me appreciating JDrama when I saw her in "Long Vacation"....amazing job of acting....too bad she wasn't in more dramas!!!!

14 sai no Haha [14歳の母]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
gotto like this drama ...Shida Mirai and Tanaka Misako gave award type performance as daughter and mother...The only downer was the actor who played the father..Namase Kaisuhisa...whose previous acting roles were comical...the trick series/gokusan series ...it was hard to take him seriously....
3 nen B gumi Kinpachi Sensei 6 [3年B組金八先生]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I have read where people have laughed at these Kinpachi series and called them cheesy....But I disagee....I'm giving this particular drama a 10 because of the emotional high I got from this show...Great cast...beautiful music...sensational story line...etc...Totally the best.....
3 nen B gumi Kinpachi Sensei 7 [3年B組金八先生]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
April 2008...I finally watched my 1st Kinpachi Sensei drama and I was completely fooled...I've always shied away from these series because I had always thought that they would be wishy washy and not be really realistic...I was so wrong!!!....This series brought me on a emotional high and a sense of fullfillment in terms of entertainment.......Through all the sadness and joy was the meaning of life...... The cast was spectacular...even the Kinpachi Sensei charaacter...who knows it all had human weakness aand therefore likeable...I gave this series a big 10!!!!!!
Ace wo Nerae! [エースをねらえ!]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Ueto Aya is one of the cuteist faces in the Japanese entertainment industry...& I love her...but a tennis player she is not.....so this show loses some creditablity because of that...plus the coach was really somewhat of a psycho head case.....!
Ai no Uta [あいのうた]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
This show is pretty predictable and there weren't really any surprises at all ....I thought the Kanno Miho was charming..etc...but plot was pretty stagnant....ending was kind of sucky...but I guess in the Japanese culture there is this thing of older men fantasizing afer younger women....
Aishiteiru to Ittekure [愛していると言ってくれ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Tokiwa Takako is on my list of favorite Japanese actress..in this drama she portrayed a girl maturing into a woman...She's protrays a young girl falling in love with a man and we see her developement into a woman....some of her actions were so childlike..and therefore very charming...
Aishiteru ~ Kaiyo [アイシテル ~ 海容]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Stunning.....Best drama of year!!!!...
Akai Ito [赤い糸]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Nice drama.....Touched many social issues but did not delve deep enough....I liked the theme of the show...symbolized with a red thread.......however the show ends with the couple only in their mid teens....they have many more years to live yet.....
Akihabara@DEEP [アキハバラ@DEEP]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Wow! Great show.....Really funny wirh interesting cast...I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this show..since this was geared for the younger generation....Highly recommend!!!

Anna-san no Omame [アンナさんのおまめ]

All I can say is Becky! Becky! Becky!!! She is so interesting as a actress....but this drama was really bad!!!!Plot tended to repeat it self with each episode......I don't recommend......

Good Show!!! Had a nice atmosphere about it...Great acting ...Great camera work!!!!
Around 40 [アラウンド40]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
OK....average drama with nothing out the ordinary..Good cast...but pretty predictable.....
Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
OK show starring Kohinata Fumiyo who is a character actor and is not usually the lead actor....a bit slow and draggy at times but not bad.....another character actor Namase Katsuhisa also in this series......
Asunaro hakusho [あすなろ白書]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
One of Kimura Takuya's earlier films...and it shows him being his true self..a kind of nerdy guy...it's only later on that he developes the 'cool' facade...but this wasn't a bad drama..a little above average..
At Home Dad [アットホーム・ダッド]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Loved this show...thought the casting was great...plot was great!! gave it a 10....
Attack No.1 [アタック No.1]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Like Ace Wo Nerae, there is the issue of creditablity...Aya's cute and all but she is not a volleyball player....at 162 cm it must be difficult to spike that ball....
Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Again Ueto Aya is one of the cute ones in the Japanese entertainment field...but unfortunely the drama was just average.. Being a JIdol, she does attract a lot of fans though....Pretty boy Nishikido Ryo was rather robotic as usual...Boo
Bara no nai Hanaya [薔薇のない花屋]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Thought that this could of been a great romantic drama but misses the mark... good cast...especially the little girl..mask and all.....but the show was kind of draggy at times...... The most annoying and weirdest feature of this show was Matsuda Shota's hair....what was the point....???
Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought)
I ranked this show no. 2 after "Long Vacation"....Ending of course was sad...but at least they had their time together...Highly recommend this romantic show for tender sensetive souls.....

Boku dake no Madonna [僕だけのマドンナ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I'm not a big fan of Hasegawa Kyoko, but I have to admit that she was Hot in this series!..She brought something extra to the screen and made this a very enjoyable show..!!!
Boku no Aruku Michi [僕の歩く道]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Smap member Kusanagi Tsuyoshi does a sensitive job portraying the mentally disabled young man...it's a off-beat role and needed someone whose not a pretty boy to pull it off...Kusanagi does!!! He and the show are winners!!!!!

CHANGE
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I gave this drama a 9....the last episode and ending was a let-down......Kimura was great but that TV speech he gave in the last episode was pretty lame....even though it was in a way amazing that he did it in one take.....
Churasan [ちゅらさん]

Great show!!!!!!!!!!!!I really enjoyed the original 156 episodes and these additional episodes continues the enjoyment......
Churasan 3 [ちゅらさん3]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I love the Churasan Series....even though this is just 5 episodes ..The two musical scores in the 3rd episode was the most awesome thing I've ever heard ...It reached my heart and soul....plan to watch the original 156 episodes of the 1st series....later...
Churasan 4 [ちゅらさん4]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
"Let's meet again" were Eri's last words in this series....I hope thats true because I really appreciate these Churasan series...Eri and her family & friends are so addictive that I look forward to another series!
Daisuki!! [だいすき!!]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Rated this series a 10 because of the performance of Karina...in other words Karina disappeared and I was only aware of Yuzu on the screen.....I hope she wins "Best actress award" somewhere ......Interesting not too important fact .....Yuzu worked in a bakery, In KinPachi Sensei 7 Yayoi (who was mentally disabled) worked in a bakery, and in Algernon ni Hanataba there was a bakery where a group of mentally diabled worked..........hmmmm
Dandori [ダンドリ]

Yamaguichi Tomoko's earlier film before Long Vacation....She's one of my favorites...Does a great job in this drama...unfortunately her surpporting cast are not that loveable..but dispite that she still does an outstanding job.....

Dr. Koto Shinryojo [Dr.コトー診療所]

Great Show!!!! Really sensitive show depicting the plight of a young gentle docter assigned to a clinic on a remote island......The cast headed by Yoshioka Hidetaka as the young dr were great....I highly recommend this drama!!!!
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]

Abe Hiroshi holds this drama together...better than average show because of him...He seems to always have his tongue in his cheek...
Dream Again [ドリーム☆アゲイン]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
An excellent series....Baseball story which wasn't really about baseball..but about a baseball player who has to die in order for him to grow as a human being...a drama about doing the right thing, gambatte, dreams, etc...........excellent cast and music....
Egao no Hosoku [笑顔の法則]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Takguchi Yuko and Abe Hiroshi are two pretty big stars in Japan but they don't have enough material to make this show a success...it's a nice show but nothing to get excited about...average boring show...
Engine [エンジン]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
If you like children..you will like this drama...The kids were all loveable and they all did a good job acting...Show was more than about racing but more about the relationship between the main charcters...And the cast had some big names!!!!Check it out!!!Highly recommended!!!!
Enka no Joou [演歌の女王 (えんか の じょおう)]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Goods cast..Amami Yuke, Fukuda Mayuko, Narumi Riko..but because the directing and storyline was just so-so....this show was average....

Disappointed in this show....With Nakama Yukie in the lead, I thought that it would be a great show...but nothing spectacular...
First Kiss [ファースト・キス]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
A little bad..Not great!...Thought the only highlight of this series was the music of Oda Kazumasa...and the cuteness of Mao....Not much going on after that....The ratings in Japan were pretty bad...and I can see why! Not great were the brother, the two roommates and the photographer boss...they should of concentrated more on the relationship between Mio and the young docter and developed more of a romantic love story between those two....the brother angle was way over blown and didn't work... Also if the brother was to be a member of the cast, they should of kept him overweight in his adult life..It's too bad because Mao needed a better story line for her to succeed..
Friends [フレンズ]

Series was kind of draggy for me....even with the addition of "guest stars" in each episode the show lacked sparkle .....
Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい]

This was a fun show until the last episode...Show of what effort can do.......The show kind of faded in the last episode....
Garasu no kamen 1 [ガラスの仮面]

Great show...really engrossing!!!!
Garasu no kamen 2 [ガラスの仮面 2]

Weird off-beat show....really different and enjoyable!!!
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Nakama Yukie is the best....Really funny as the teacher for the class of misfits....She does such a good job in comical roles...thought that some of the misfits did a good job of acting..especially the overweigh student....but again some of the pretty boys were robotic in their performance...
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Like the 1st Gokusen, Nakama Yukie is the star of this drama..and does a great job acting in this comedy....However, I could'nt give this series a 10 because I felt that some of the acting of the supporting cast was pretty robotic....Otherwise, this was a pretty fun series....
Gokusen 3 [ごくせん 3]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
I really enjoyed this 3rd Gokusen because of 'yankumi'.....true the plot is the same as in Gokusen 1 & 2 but Nakama Yukie is so cool and enjoyable as the Yakuza teacher that I laughed all the way throughout the drama.....Really silly and impossible ...but I was tickled all the way....a five feet tall female teacher taking on all the neighborhood bullies and wiping them up....can't happen ..but it does in this drama.......
Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Never thought that I would see bowling on a Japanese series...It's actually a good show...Kaneshiro T who is half Japanese/Chinese does a great job...and looks like he can bowl...
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Didn't get into this series....maybe I didn't believe that the actors actually fitted their roles....Kimura didn't feel like a pilot...nor did Kou feel like a mechanic.....
GTO [麻辣教師]

It wasn't that bad!...I've read good and bad reviews of this drama...not my favorite...but not that bad!!!!
H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Good story involving baseball...Ishihara Satomi is cute and funny in this show....Cry baby Yamada didn"t cry in this show ...so that helped...Good Show!!!!
Hachimitsu to Kuroba [ハチミツとクローバー]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
Watched this series up to episode 3 and couldn't watch anymore.....Ikuta Toma and Narimaya Hiroki were slightly annoying....Narumi Riko is in my opinion a fine actress but in this drama, she looks way too young for the part...I would say that the movie version with Aoi Yu was much more enjoyable and sucessful.......but this dorama was draggy and nothing was new....
Haikei, Chichiue-sama [拝啓、父上様]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Nice, pleasant little drama....A story of a young man struggling to be a chef...his every day tribulations and how he tries to do his best..in a way it's every man's story...Ninomiya Kazunari plays the role of the young man and Kuroki Meisa plays the role of the girl he meets and likes...Every season the Japanese TV entertainment comes out with at least one show which is a "winner".. this drama is the winner for this season!!!!!

I have to admit that I only watched about 3 episodes of this series before I deleted the show from my hard drive...worst...
Hanayome to Papa [花嫁とパパ]
Rating: 4/10
I was surprised that I deleted this series after a few episode..but I guess`other then the cuteness of Ishihara Satomi, there's not much going for this show...annoying surporting cast...especially the males....
Haru to Natsu/Haru e Natsu [ハルとナツ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Good show...good cast...interesting historical information concerning plight of a segment of some Japanese families in Brazil...Only issue I have with this series is that throughtout the show Haru is much taller then Natsu....until they meet in Japan later in life as elderly women...suddenly Natsu is much taller then Haru...I know it's a minor issue..but it does take away from the show...
Haruka 17 [はるか 17]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
I thought that this show would be better..it had all the ingredients to be a hit...underdog plain girl struggles to be a top star,etc....but maybe it didn't develope because the girl really wasn't that ugly to begin with...it didn't convince anyone......

This drama was watched ..June 2008...11 years after it was released.....I gave it an 10+ because I really enjoyed this comedy...It was wild...silly ..and satisfying...really funny and a fun drama to watch...I wanted more....The entertainment of the 90's was the best.....It was also fun to get a glimpse of some of the actors and actresses in their early years.....so refreshing......
Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]

Actually this series was OK...considering that after watching the first two episodes I thought that Dr Noguchi was portrayed as a cartoon character...the music was too loud ...everyone seemed to be too smug...everyone seemed to be in love with their smock..walking in the darken corridors in the triangular formation...BUT then I actually got into the show after...and enjoyed it....a little.........

OK...this series should be saved for those rainy days when you don't have anything else to watch... Yukie Nakama is great and her banter with Pinko was entertaining....but the story line was quite lame and the plot was pretty predictable....bringing in the Korean guy was interesting......

There are shows where the leading role is highly miscasted...This is true of this show as Yamashita Tomohisa and Horikita Maki are both miscasted...maybe because they are too young or they lack the talent to play roles other then high school students....???? another worst!!!!

My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
I have mixed feelings concerning this show..On one hand I do like the acting of Nagase Tomoya...and the discovery of a new actress Kashii Yu is a pleasant surprise....however the overall plot, the over acting..the "He looks too old" issue just made this passable...
My Girl [マイガール]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)

Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Abe.Yada and Aya were all great...but it was hard to give this show about cooking a 10....
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
If you are into pretty boys and girls who are Idols, you will like this show......I thought that the acting and the plot were just average.... except for Horikita Maki..who did an interesting job as the outcast....
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Rating: 5/10
I surprised myself and couldn't finish this drama...I like Ueno Juri and have watched her movies and tv dramas in the past...but this series had too many annoying supporting cast members for me to enjoy and continue watching....I guess to me the acting was way over the top and was way too silly.....

Ooku Dai-ishou [大奧第一章]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Of all the Ooku shows, I liked this one the best...Matsushita Yuki"s performance had me in awe...as she fought her way to be the top- nanny....such loyality....

Otousan [おとうさん]

This should of been a fun show but Tamura Masakazu was a just a bit too annoying to enjoy the whole series...It must be quite difficult to have a arrogant father like him......
Over Time [オーバー・タイム]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Really enjoyed this series until the last episode....lousy way to end the show.....
Oyaji~ [オヤジぃ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
This series is similar to the show "Otousan" which also starred Tamura Masakazu....in both shows I found him annoying...The supporting cast was great...but because he was so arrogant I could'nt fully enjoy show....
Pretty Girls [プリティガール]

Pride [プライド]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
You think with both Takeuchi Yuko and Kimura Takuya in this drama that this show would garner a 10...but I gave this show a 8 ....I don't know why??????... maybe it's because I can't see Japanese playing hockey.....anyway I felt there was something...?

Ryokiteki na Kanojo [猟奇的な彼女]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
I watched the original Korean version and unfortunately this Japanese version does not compare.....Kusanagi Tsuyoshi is usually a fine actor but in this dorama he's pretty lame...and Tanihara Shosuke is just totally annoying....but I did appreciate Tanaka Rena's acting.......

Shiawase ni Naritai [幸せになりたい]
Rating: 9/10
I have to admit that I'm a Kyoko Fukada fan, so this series was easy for me to watch and enjoy...So she's somewhat of an airhead, she's easy on the eyes and fun to watch on the screen...Her acting wasn't that bad dispite a weak plot to begin with....
Shika Otoko Aoniyoshi [鹿男あをによし]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Very interesting show......the plot was different.....and the cast was excellent.....! Three things come to mind... 1. The deer was annoying 2. Ogawa sensei still reminded me of a deer even after he got his face back 3. Ayase Haruka has the cutest eyes.......

Teppan Shoujo Akane [鉄板少女アカネ]

Tokkyu Tanaka 3 Go [特急田中3号]

Tokyo Wankei [東京湾景]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
I'm a big fan of Nakama Yukie...Usually she stars in comedies...so to see her in a dramatic role was a treat...Even though the plot to this drama was somewhat corny ...the issue of the Koreans in Japan is an important issue....which aired in this series...the music was also awesome.....
Tomorrow
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Gave this drama an 8 because of the good cast....but there were one too many operations to really have any great magical moments in this show.......

Watashitachi no kyokasho [わたしたちの教科書]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Good Drama!!! Addresses issue of bullying in Japan's schools. Last year there were a series of suicides connected with bullying among students in Japan and this is in response to that current issue. In 2006 there were 608 suicides of Japanese under the age of 20...71 of those were known to be connected with bullying...they think that this number is low.... Kanno Miho does a good job as a lawyer who tries to discloses that there is "bullying" at her daughter's mid-school...This drama plus the drama LIFE will probably represent the type of future dramas addressing the issue of bullying unlike some high school dramas of the past which depicts the bullies as heroes....
Wonderful Life [ワンダフルライフ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Predictable show...but was OK!!...Bad News Jaguars win championship game...can't lose with that situation...Good feeling type of show.. The only complaint I have about show is that at the championship game they must of only had 100 people in the stands....
Yakusha Damashii [役者魂]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Matsu Tatako was the only positive thing of this drama....The story line was boring ...so the show tended to drag on for a while... some of the cast became annoying...the sha cho, the accountant, the old sensei......Also the background music became really annoying...
Yamada Taro Monogatari [山田太郎ものがたり]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
OK drama...there were some "cute" scenes....The cast was generally ok and entertaining...but there were a few who were annoying..particularly the 'dead beat' father...who not only was useless but generally is the weirdest looking actor I have ever seen...fangs and all......The plot got weak and scattered at the end..and unsatisfying......
