Attention Please [アテンションン プリース]
The pace was good. The plot's funny and interesting. The acting by the casts was superb. All and all a drama that I enjoyed alot.
Hotaru no Hikari [ホタルノヒカリ]
I love how Ayase Haruka says Buchoooooooooo and HUH? HUH?! HUH!! Simply a nice romantic comedy. Predictable plots but who cares! I just love how Ahomiya and Buchoooooooo interacts.
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Great acting by Sawajiri Erika~ The most tear jerking drama ever.
LIFE [ライフ]
Watch this drama again recently and realised that I still love it.
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Funny drama. Laughed so hard at each episodes.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]
Funny and meaningful drama on friendships. A must-watch! Fav Quote: What you believe may not be the truth but it becomes the truth because you believe it.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
One of the drama I enjoyed the most! I laughed so hard at every episodes.

Abe Hiroshi [阿部寛]
You know it is a good drama when you see him as a lead.
Aragaki Yui [新垣結衣]
The lovable Gakky! Everyone loves her! So do I.
Ayase Haruka [綾瀬はるか]
Ahomiya left a deep impression..... Kawaii!
Kitano Kii [北乃きい]
Caught my attention in LIFE. Watch Taiyou to Umi no Kyoushitsu to see how she fare. Not bad I'd say. Hope to see more of her acting in the future.
Konishi Manami [小西真奈美]
Been keeping track of her since Dive Deep 2001. She is so sweet looking. Looking forward to seeing more of her.
Nagase Tomoya [長瀬智也]
He's such a good actor. Comical, cool, serious etc. He can really act well. I personally prefer his comical roles as his exaggerated expression really makes me laugh.
Yoshitaka Yuriko [吉高由里子]
Surprising performance in both Ashita no Kita Yoshio and Taiyou to Umi no Kyoushitsu. Her voice and acting in both drama have a certain "laziness" style which is pretty unique.

I love this drama. One of the early drama I bought. Tsuyoshi interactions with the animal is nice and touching.
Ashita no Kita Yoshio [あしたの、喜多善男]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Under-rated drama. The plot alone is pretty unique and interesting. Many avoided it as it deals with a man with suicidal thoughts but as you watch each episode which represent a day in the man's life, you will start to appreciate how the plot intervene and really brings out many emotions.

Superb. brilliant acting by the casts. Not really an Ueto Aya Fan but I must say she did really well. Not to be missed!
Bara no nai Hanaya [薔薇のない花屋]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Superb drama. Takeuchi Yuko did really well in this one and Shingo is pretty good too. Yagi Yuki is soooo kawaii. A touching drama with many tear-jerking moments. Definately a must-watch.
Big wing [ビッグウイング]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
Hmmm an ok drama i suppose. About Uchida Yuki as an air stewardess. Typical plot, typical acting i suppose.
Celeb to Binbo Taro [セレブと貧乏太郎]

Romantic comedy. Kinda unrealistic but watchable.
Code Blue: Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei [コード・ブルー]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Densha Otoko [電車男]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Not a bad drama. Got both funny and touching moments. The pace is kinda slow for a Japanese drama but it is still good. Shiraishi Miho did a good job. I liked her acting especially when she is angry...
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Nice drama! Abe Hiroshi looks really cool! Basically a school drama about A lawyer who intend to help out a school by producing 5 candidates for Tokyo University. I really like how they apply cool teaching/learning methods which really does work. Anyway there's some great acting by the casts as well. You can't go wrong with Yamapi, Gakky, Nagasawa Masami and of coz, Abe Hiroshi. I personally like Saeko in this drama. She's so cute with her pissed face and her voice is..... haha.
Fighting Girl [ファイティングガール]
Rating: 3/10 (Bought & Watched)
Okie.. pretty bad. Fukada Kyoko's acting in it is not really nice. She seems kinda plump in it too. One of the earlier drama i watched.
Fukaku Mogure [深く潜れ〜八犬伝2001]
Rating: 1/10 (Bought & Watched)
Probably the worst Jdorama I've ever watched. It was Konishi Manami debut (is it?) and it is how I got to know this great actress. Other than that this drama is really confusing.
Gakko ja Oshierarenai! [学校じゃ教えられない!]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Kyoko Fukada as a teacher who wants to form a social dance club in a girl school. 5 male students enrolled into the school and are paired with 5 female students joined the club. It is nice as those students are all pretty new actor/actresses and seeing how they did, it is pretty promising. Touched some issues on boy-girl relationships which is never taught in school.
Gal Cir [ギャルサ]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
Sad to say, this drama have so many good casts but the plot of this drama failed miserably. It's supposed to be a comedy but I dun see myself laughing. I gave it a 4 just for the casts.
Galileo [ガリレオ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Interesting when started out but the interest fade off as you watch. It is a pretty typical school drama where the Nakama Yukie act as a teacher whose grandpa is the leader of a secret society.
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん2]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Same as Gokusen. Pretty average once you pass the initial interesting stage.
Haken no Hinkaku [ハケンの品格]

A pretty good drama imo. Super Ryoko can do so many things in it, unbelievable. I like her acting alot. She fits into the role perfectly!

Nagese Tomoya as a new doctor in a private hospital. A nice comedy with some touching scenes. Uchiyama Rina is in it too! Overall quite average.

hmmmm. Rate it with 5 because I expect more from the casts. I mean Takuya Kimura and Takako Matsu. They can produce much more!
Hito ni Yasashiku [人にやさしく / 3ピース]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
This is one of the drama that left a lasting memory. A story about 3 guys who one day adopted a child. The chemistry between them is good. It reflects on friendships and kinships. Manami Konishi is in it as well! And Hoshino Mari :D
Hoshi no kinka 1 [星の金貨]
Rating: 6/10 (Watched)
One of the earliest Jdrama I watched. Maybe at that time I am too young to comprehend this drama. Bascially about Noriko Sakai as Aya, a deaf and mute girl. Pretty touching plot but once you've seen other touching drama, you'll feel that it's pretty average.
Hoshi no kinka 2 / Zoku hoshi no kinka [續。星の金貨]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
Well, watched it after Hoshi no Kinka 1. What can I say? It sort of stray off and become worse. Now they even made Aya blind... sigh... Well not as good as the first I suppose.

I actually missed this Jdorama. Watched it recently and I love it! Ahomiya Gambatte!
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [1リットルの涙]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Probably one of the best Jdorama I've watched. It left such a lasting impact on me that every now and then, scenes from this drama still comes to my mind. Sawajiri Erika's acting in this drama was top notch! There's nothing to complain about it. The rest of the casts were pretty amazing too. I watched it 3 times in total and I still feel sad everytime I watch.
Ienaki ko 1 [家なき子]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
One of the earlier Jdorama I've watched. I feel that it isn't really that nice but continue to watch it due to Adachi Yumi. One of my earliest idol. Maybe it is because I was too young to comprehend this drama at that time.
Ienaki ko 2 [家なき子 2]
Rating: 5/10 (Watched)
Basically same as the first series. However, I got to know of another pretty nice actress from this series. She is Nakayama Emiri who acted as Chiho in this series. Oh well, it is a pretty average drama I suppose.

Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ]

The first Jdorama that I feel really touched after watching. Probably one of Fukada Kyoko's best act. It is touching especially towards the end as Kyoko was dying.

Started off a little shaky. Middle plot was good. End plot took a slight dip. Overall not a bad drama but the 3 hrs (Well, 2hrs + without the CM) finale was.. how would I put it, unsatisfactory.

A surprisingly nice dark drama adapted from manga. The casts did really well and IMO this is the best summer 07 drama.
LIMIT [リミット]
Rating: 8/10
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
Well, it was a pretty popular drama back then and so I watched it. To me however, I feel it is pretty average. A school teacher in love with her student regardless of the objections from the society. Supposed to be touching but too bad I can't feel much for them.
Mei-chan no Shitsuji [メイちゃんの執事]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Pretty casts. Simple comical plot with not much twist but overall a watchable drama.
Mop Girl [モップガール]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Not too bad. Kitagawa Keiko can do better as the lead. Tanihara Shosuke is pretty good. I laugh more from him than Kitagawa. Asami Reina as Hina is good too. Everything else seems so-so. At least I don't have to struggle to finish watching this drama unlike many others.
My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
This drama really made me laugh. A nice comedy about a gangster whom was force to enter college. Nagasa Tomoya expressions is really hilarious and Yui Aragaki is simply kawaii.

Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]

A very nice drama. It teaches a lot on friendships. I liked the acting by Yamapi and Pori-chan in this drama. They reflect the characters really well.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
This is a really really realllllly nice drama. I watched it over and over and can still laugh at it. Ueno Juri really acted well as Nodame. Her silly actions and comical acts are all done well. And I've sorta grown to Stresemann accent in the series. The introductions of classical music is another nice point of this drama. It got me pretty interested in classical music.

Hoshino Mari. Well that's all I can say about this series. She's pretty good in it and convincing as a deaf/mute girl. However the plot of this series is pretty much predictable and gets boring in the middle of the drama. However towards the last episode it picked up again.
Shiroi Haru [白い春]

Would be a perfect 10 if the ending wasn't a little let down. Watch out for Abe Hiroshi's superb acting in this drama.

Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
Actually I did not find this drama touching. When I watched it years back, I feel that the chemistry between Tsuyoshi and Ryoko is lacking. The ending may be a big twist but it feels so sudden. Abrupt is a better word i suppose. It feels like the scriptwriter got bored and wanted to end it fast.
Taiyo to Umi no Kyoshitsu [太陽と海の教室]

I actually find this the best drama of this season.
Taiyou no uta [タイヨのうた]
Rating: 6/10 (Bought & Watched)
As much as I like Sawajiri Erika, I feel that she can do better in Taiyou no Uta. The plot of this series is once again about a girl with a terminal disease and Erika is once again, in a role that is bound to die in the end. The chemistry better her and Kouji (Yamada Takayuki) is somewhat lacking. Maybe it is because I expected alot more from them.

Such a sweet drama. Aibu Saki did well as Riiko althought many felt that she over-acted. Hayami Mokomichi did really well! The pace of the drama is pretty good too althought somewhere along ep08-10 seems kinda draggy. Overall a romantic-comedy worth watching.

Fukaku Mogure [深く潜れ〜八犬伝2001]
Will not watch it if not for Manami Konishi [Rating: 2/10]
It has a terrible plot. You will feel so giddy when watching it. Back in 2001 when I first bought and watch it, it was because I like Ami Suzuki and wanted to see how she fair in this drama. However this drama brought Manami Konishi to my world. She's such a sweety. I manage to finish watching it thanks to her. I find that the soundtrack PUZZLE by the irony of fate was nice too.
