Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ] I totally love this show, but sad to say, i always haf to pluck up lotsa courage to re-watch again, cos itz simply too heart-wrenching, and u would really be pissed at kyoko and shuji for not cherishing the time they had half way thru the show...but nonetheless, itz a great show!!!:P
Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！] once again, kimura lived up to his drama king title...at first while i was watching, i thought it was just a common light hearted drama waiting for kimura to add spark to it, but it was until episode 8 onwards taht u c the real story, re-watch it again, and u can see the whole picture even clearer, itz really a very very interesting and a must see drama. AWESOME
Hero sum ppl might not like this drama due to itz lack of romance story, ending sloppy and etc, but for once, im happy to see kimura takuya finally not in a totally romance story, it feels great to see a change in the character he acts, every episode is carefully planned, cases solved intelligently, and how this 'country pumpkin' show everybody thru his ability dat he is not juz a 'country pumpkin' he is a great and righteous prosecuter....this once again brought out kimura takuya's versatility in acting, of course not forgetting the other casts, whu's acting skills are superb as well...:P
Long vacation [ロングバケーション] this is another brilliant classic by brilliant cast, namely, kimura takuya and yamaguchi tomoko. what can i say, honestly, at first i couldn't understand why everybody loves this drama and call it a classic, but as i repeatedly watch it and understand it, and wif kimura and yamaguchi's fine and expert acting skills, i began to see why, a brilliant classis that cannot b missed.
Pride [プライド] trust me, this is a fabulous show, it hasn't even finished screening, and u c quite a number of votes already, precisely bcoz itz good. but sum ppl out there dun like it bcoz they think halu(kimura), is too cold and not the kimura they like to c, but isn;t it more special this way? dosent it shows once again, kimura's wonderful acting?also, the other casts are still rather young and new, but together, they created a wonderful chemistry. this is a MUST WATCH!
Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [空から降る一億の星] people might think that this drama is dark and etc, dat. i totally agree, but we cant deny it has an excellent plot,and the actors esp. kimura takuya and fukatsu eri, not forgetting sanma san, their acting is superb and they totally brought out the characters well..the ending, to me is very unexpected...when i just started watching, i think ryo is a disgusting creep, but it was until the end...u slowly see the real him, the him dat he had hid in himself for soso long....this show is a wonderful one, once again, proving kimura takuya's versatility in acting:P
Umizaru [海猿] a great movie, starring ito hideaki. bringing out every ounce of his charisma, not forgetting the touching and inspiring storyline which is reaches out to everybody. a very strong storyline with a strong cast that made is a movie not to b missed. team spirit, friendship, love, support, sacrifice. UMIZARU

Ito Hideaki [伊藤英明] great actor with great charisma. looks to have a great future!!rock ON!!
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉] who else? this guy is simply great, wonderful and amazing, the records esp. drama ratings he had broken, his looks, his character and everything, is every a girl can ever want in a guy...his acting, singing, dancing and everything else makes him the special and only KIMURA TAKUYA
Sakaguchi Kenji [坂口憲二] a great actor which had seen to improve overtime which is a very great accomplishment. great body builf with pleasant looks. rock ON!
Joshiana [女子アナ] good! [Rating: 8/10] i thought this drama is really good. it is very entertaining, though i personally feel there isn't a very solid storyline, but it just keeps you watching, great job by the leads!
Pride [プライド] 10 [Rating: 10/10] what can i say, look at how fast it climbed up the chart of jdorama.com's top 50 drama chart. it is a 2004 drama, yet, within a year it is already in the 10th place, i guess this sorts of tell you how good this drama is.
great job done by the cast. love the chemistry between the cast. everybody just fits in their role so perfectly bringing out this wonderful story that really deserves a 10 =))
Shiroi Kyoto [白い巨塔] well... [Rating: 5/10] i personally thought this drama, well, nice to watch, nice to catch, but not exactly, a very interesting drama...itz is similar to those lots of episodes drama...u know, u wanna follow but i dunno how exactly, but i actually find this series kind of boring...isn't the first part just all about how zaizen getting to b the prof...and it is really kind of draggy...the voting. second part just about the law suit in general isn;t it...i dunno, maybe b4 watching, everybody had been commenting how it is better than pride and that how high its ratings are...so i admit that i expect alot from this show...and i end up quite disappointed i guess...
