O.o [Rating: 9/10]
Pretty enjoyable drama. Very nice leads and great acting. Especially from the Densha Otoko himself. Itoh Misaki does what she does best which is stay there and look beautiful. It's a normal love story but with a 21th century twist.

THAT DAMN TRUMPET PLAYER. [Rating: 7/10]
I think Abe Hiroshi is one of the best JDrama actors out there so it always pleases me to see him in something. This is a slightly inspirational tale if a bit weighed down by some of the students. Particularly that annoying trumpet player. He brings down everything he's in.

Gokusen is amusing for about the first 4 episodes then you start to realize that wow all the episodes are the same!!!

KimuTaku as a pilot? Boy, what a pitch! It's not particularly bad nor particularly good. It just is.

Pretty entertaining drama. Nothing special. Some cute leads and some nice wishy washy feelings scenes. + baseball.

Hugely overrated drama but still enjoyable mostly for its likable leads.

This is definitely one of my fave doramas because it does not feel like any dorama I've ever seen. It does not feature any stilted romantic leads, terminally ill lovers nor any other cliche bullshit. It's just great characters and great acting and a fantastic directing style that fits the story oh so perfectly.

Hmmm. I got a strange feminist feeling from this drama. Maybe it was just me. Anyway, nice leads, lots of humor and some saccharine romance. What's not to like?

Another overrated JE dorama. I don't have much against Yamapi or Kame or Jun or Nino or whoever. I wish all the best for them but srsly I wish other actors even got a fucking chance. This one was okay. Not as good as NwP but still likable if a bit shallow and overwrought.

Overly-cheesy but likable tale of a woman who is terminally ill BUT CAN BE SAVED???
Hilarious use of Wham! songs.

ridiculously dumb and shallow. Horrible acting as well.

FOOOOOOOOOOOD [Rating: 8/10]
This dorama made me hungry. But it's actually quite good. It conveys a family as they are. Flawed yet loving. Good stuff.

One of most hilarious dorama I've seen. Definitely a classic.

I don't enjoy doramas for their cute leads and whatnot like I see a lot of people do. This drama was pretty entertaining if not particulary stimulating in any sense.

classical music [Rating: 8/10]
A nice pleasing drama. It's got very likable characters and a nice environment to set a dorama story in. Plus great music. Oh and Eita!

At first I was worried that it was going to be some dumb dorama about a girl with a disability but it was so much more. It captures how it feels to be a particular age and be in love. It's just fantastic and highly recommended.
summer snow? [Rating: 8/10]
Enjoyable drama that tackled a couple of weighty issues. The ending made me cringe though.
