Horikita Maki [堀北真希] First noticed her brilliant acting but as I watched more of her dramas I started to feel like she is mostly playing the same or similar characters. Would love to see her diversify herself.
Dr Koto - Shinryoujo 2006 [Dr.コトー診療所2006] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) good as second season but too weak for a stand alone series.
I also didnt like the fact that It did not have the feel good feeling of the first season
Hikari to Tomo ni [光とともに] Rating: 4/10 (Watched) basically a feel good dorama about autism. Follows the structure of school doramas but having a side character highlighted and then forgotten couple of episodes later doesnt work as well here.
On a side note I noticed an ongoing unintentional positive discrimination here which is not so good if you think about it.
Ryokiteki na Kanojo [猟奇的な彼女] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) If this was a stand alone drama instead of a remake of my sassy girl I would have loved it. It was pretty good on its own. But sadly as a remake I was constantly reminded of the original and this was nowhere near as impressive or charismatic as the movie.
