Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ] Although some parts were quite draggy, but the story was overall touching and sad. Truly unforgettable and amazing. Tokiwa was extremely kawaii and Takuya was basically his normal self. Recommended.
Friends [フレンズ] I hate Won Bin! He was trying hard to be charming and all, but there's just something about him that makes me almost puke everytime he's on screen. Kyoko on the other hand, shines throughout the entire show.
GTO [麻辣教師] Armm... what can I say? I loved this drama, but Sorimachi kinda spoilt it really. Even Nanako wasn't really good in this. But the story itself was truly good, and I started reading the comic after watching the show.
Long Love Letter [ロング・ラブレター〜漂流教室] This drama is kakkoiii!!! I never thought that Yosuke could be this handsome!!! Bought this because of Tokiwa, didn't expect it to be this good, and I even discovered the cutie Yosuke!!! Tokiwa was, as always, beautiful and good. For those who hasn't watched this, go and get your ass over this drama!!!
Long vacation [ロングバケーション] My all-time favourite. The reason I was sooo crazy over Takuya on the first place. Matsu wasn't exactly great in this one. But the pairing of Yutaka and Matsu was worth a watch.
Ninomiya Kazunari [二宮和也] When I first saw Arashi, I thought they were just some lame pretty boy wanted to become SMAP. But Nino changed it all. He is rather short, and I doubt he'll ever grow, but he's got this X-factor about him that makes me drooool... his hairstyle changes every week and he plays guitar. Dances well and acting is really good.
Takenouchi Yutaka [竹野内豊] First saw him in beachboys and have been hooked ever since. He looks a little bit like Ivan Sergei IMO. Tall and good looking.
Tokiwa Takako [常盤貴子] I think her undeniable talent and popularity says it all. Her performance is always spectacular, esp. in Midday Moon. Shines brightly in Moonlight Express, and even Andy Lau said once that if he was younger, he would have proposed Tokiwa. Nice!

Aishiteiru to Ittekure [愛していると言ってくれ] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) Tokiwa in her early days...cute and naive... spectacular performance by the actors, particularly Toyoetsu. Sadly, it didn't have a good plot to match...
Beach boys [ビーチボーイズ] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) Watched this for my uber-cute Yutaka. Didn't really like Ryoko and Izumi Inamori though. Story is quite boring with some memorable moments
Big wing [ビッグウイング] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Somehow I didn't hate Uchida Yuki in this one. Kassy is not as cute as when he was in Love Letter, but the story was fairly interesting
Boku ga boku de aru tame ni [僕が僕であるために] Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) Farrrnyyy... hahaha... Shingo was sooo cute!!! Basically everybody was acting as themselves and Takuya was, of course, CHO KAKKOII!!!
Cheap Love [チープラブ] Rating: 3/10 (Watched) Maybe this is a bit biased, as I don't really like Sorimachi..., but the story was boring and I fell asllep quite a number of times... missed a lot of parts but then again, who'd give a damn, rite??
First Love Rating: 5/10 (Watched) Watabe reminded me of Kyoko's onitja in BL... this guy can act, surely, too bad he doesn't have the look. Fukada was cute.
Food fight [フードファイト] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Personally I think Kusanagi looked like a horse in this. Wonder how he stayed so skinny after eating all those food
Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) Story was ok..., actors were fine... nothing spectacular, unless if you count staring at Takeshi is fun, that is.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！] Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched) I didn't really like Takuya's image in this one... He just didn't have the X-factor anymore (becoz of his hair, maybe?) Luckily he changed his hairstyle for the MIJ concert. Short hair (or rather short NORMAL hair) is just not for him... thinks me...
GTO [麻辣教師] Rating: 10/10 Hilarious...! it would have been MUCH better if they cast other actor to play Onitzuka. Nanako was ok, but she was rather matured-looking for the childish and sweet Fuyutzuki-sensei.
Hero Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) Seemed quite boring at first, but later the drama developed to a funny and somewhat ridiculous plot. Matsu was really cute in this one. Recommended.
Iguana no musume [イグアナの娘] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) I discovered Okada Yoshinori because of this drama... The story was nice, but Iguana?? WTF??!?
Itazura na Kiss [イタズラなKiss] Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) I remembered being REALLY CRAZY over Kassy for quite a long time when I first watch this show. I even thought he resembled Masanobu Ando from some angles. Used to think that the main actress was cute, but after THOUSAND times of re-watching, she really was quite annoying. But still, this is highly recommended
Jinsei wa joujoda [人生は上々だ] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) Takuya was hontonii kakkoiii!!! But really, Hama-san was the main 'attraction' in this drama. BTW, they both have a GREAT chemistry!
Kabachitare! [カバチタレ！] Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched) I bought this for Takako, wasn't dissapointed but I expected something better than this. But of course, just seeing Takako is worth everything.... ^_^
Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ] Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched) The story appeared to be draggy and somewhat lame... probably because I watched BL before this and found it to be much more touching and sweet, but Fukada and Kaneshiro...yummy!
Kindaichi shonen no jikenbo 1 [金田一少年の事件簿 1] Rating: 3/10 (Watched) I know a lot of people liked this show, but it just didn't make sense to me that Tsuyoshi is even 'big' in Japan. Kinki Kids is even worse. No offence but I didn't really like this show.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション] Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) The best show I've ever watched so far. Everything was perfect - the actors, the plot, the song! Takuya was sugoi you'd just melt whenever he's on screen! Ok, a little carried away there. This show is nice. Buy it.
Love letter Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched) Kassy san was great. The ending was deep and touching... A bit confusing at times, but overall this show deserves a big thumbs-up!
Mahiru no tsuki [真晝の月] Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) Tokiwa Takako at her best! I cried whenever she cried, she was just great! This drama really showed the reasons of her being the Queen of J-drama for a loong time once. She's truly the best Jdorama actress.
Meguri ai [めぐり逢い] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) After a great first episode, everything just went down. I mean, DOWN. Just think about it, Masha and Tokiwa? Great pairing but in a drama like this??! What a dissapointment
