Realistic. Very moving to watch Yui Natsukawa act as a single mother suddenly slapped with news that she was suffering from first stage breast cancer and her struggle to conquer her fears, hold down her job, raise her son single-handedly and carry on with life. Nice theme song - Kimi ga Iru!

Fukuyama Masaharu was the draw. Matsushima Nanako was kinda bland, playing a rather unchallenging role as the aloof ex. The overall story was fine but their relationship dragged out slowly by bits till the very end to a rather ambiguous closure. I was waiting for sparks to ignite...alas...

Goro's so wooden it's hard to understand why he deserves the affection of three women who deserve so much better. It's hard to really care for the characters, even Tomoko Murakami who turned in a credible performance, after awhile.

Formulaic but entertaining. Good chemistry between the Oshio & Sorimachi, plot wasn't too original though, renegade vs stickler for rules has been rehashed in many forms and played to death. Thought Odoru was much better in the league of police dramas.

I like Ryoko Shinohara but Hanayome was a shallow, exaggerated and overly long affair. The letdown is the script and silly characters like Azuchi Kaori.

Iryu [医龍 Team Medical Dragon]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Absolutely riveting. Unrealism aside, Iryu probably ranks as one of the best dramas of 2006. The episodes are well-paced and scripted, and the drama benefits from an ensemble of interesting characters that are well fleshed out by the cast. Special mention for Natsuki Mari as Dr Kitou the astute, cunning, yet charming head of emergency.
Itazura na Kiss [イタズラなKiss]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Itazura started off interesting, picked up pace but got whiny, annoying and ludicrous towards the end. It was hard to buy Kassy's character's sudden morph from cool, aloof Irie who seems to hold Kotoko in contempt and disgust to an enlightened one who finally realises his true feelings for her. Kassy is the reason to trudge through this though.

Abe Hiroshi's in his element as a fastidious, obnoxious, middle-age man who is lonely but too proud to admit it. Each episode is hilarious. Natsukawa Yui also delivers a lovely performance as his unsuspecting love interest. Great supporting cast!

Fluffy sweet romance.
Kemonomichi [けものみち]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Dark and depressing, watching the characters in Kemonomichi is like seeing them get helplessly sucked into a vortex of greed and despair for which there's no return. Manipulation and treachery are the order of the day. Almost every character has an ulterior motive , is cold and ruthless, yet their vulnerability and yearning is what makes Kemonomichi a cut above the rest.

The cases are straight forward but the concepts are interesting. However, the decision to create stereotypical characters makes Kira Kira Hikaru all too predictable and disappointing as much as I like Eri Fukatsu and Yasuko Matsuyuki.

Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Highly entertaining and funny. Strong cast and script though the last ep kinda lagged. Possibly my favourite drama of Spring 2005. Tsuyoshi Kusanagi has always been stereotyped as the eternal optimist cum do-gooder and done that role to death, but Suzuki Shimao suits him just fine (besides his role in Team).
Koi no Chikara [恋ノチカラ]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Brilliant. Koi no Chikara is one of the best romance dramas. I love Eri Fukatsu!!! Ditzy, funny, dreamy. She and Tsutsumi Shinichi make this drama worth watching many times over. The cast and storyline make Koi endearing and addictive. Can't help feeling that the actors had a fantastic time on the set as the drama has an infectious mood. And a lovely, upbeat soundtrack too. Better than Itsumo Futari De (also by the same scriptwriter).

Love Story
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Wonderfully funny and touching love story although the romantic entanglements almost seemed to at times to get out of hand. Etsushi Toyokawa played the dour, difficult Nagase terrifically. Miho Nakayama's role wasn't that endearing but it still made an engrossing watch. Also loved the OST especially Haruka.

I liked the premise and thought it started off well but thought the ending was a little of a letdown. Chemistry between the leads seemed lacking too though that's probably because they had few scenes together and they were playing cautious characters. A charmingly sweet story though.

My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]
Ningen no Shoumei [人間の証明]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Ningen no Shoumei struck me as more a study of humanity than a detective series. It is interesting yet not absorbing probably because one doesn't really care for the characters. The drama starts of in a meandering, unfocused manner that requires much determination to watch to try to link seemingly unconnected people and incidents together. Midway through, it became obvious who the murderer is and the only reason I stuck through it was to find out how they'd nail the person. I thought too much was attributed to coincidence and fate, and having a Japanese portray a black person bothered me.

Oishii puropozu [おいしいプロポーズ]
Rating: 4/10 (Watched)
It's hard to stomach this drama which could have had so much more promise had it casted better leads (though the script left much to be desired too). Hasegawa Kyoko delivers a bland and uninspiring performance as a small Italian restaurant chef. Haven't we seen all those expressions before in previous roles? At least we were saved the pouts then. Koide Keisuke feels like her younger brother and there are no sparks between them and the ensuing romance is kinda unfathomable and anything but hot and riveting. Nishimura Masahiko has seen better days. This was just a waste of his acting talent.

Saigo no Bengoshi isn't a particularly refreshing legal drama but Abe Hiroshi's portrayal of the scruffy, acerbic, tenacious and perceptive public defence attorney, Udo, somehow makes the show a delight to watch even though most of the cases are simple and one knows early on, where the drama will lead to.

Horrible. Noriko Fujiwara is pouty and ditzy, which gets annoying when is becomes apparent that the plot will get nowhere when both leads go into self denial for at least half the show. Urgh... couldn't help but wish I could yell "get on with it". Could have cut the number of eps by half.

Top Caster [トップキャスタ]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Top Caster had a great but underutilised cast, and a script that seemed to lose focus along the way as it tried to balance news scoops with the relationship between newscaster Tsubaki and her assistant Nozomi. Yuki Amami and Shosuke Tanihara made a lovely pairing. They're so coolly business-like and professional towards everyone but when they're together they almost always end up losing their senses and bickering in a childish manner.
