|1 Pound no Fukuin [１ポンドの福音]|
Light-hearted fun [Rating: 6/10]
Despite the wacky storyline, I enjoyed this drama. If you're just looking for some light-viewing then I'd recommend this. Kamenashi is real funny, cute and spastic and there's quite a few laughs in there to keep u watching~!
Simply cooking [Rating: 5/10]
I gave it a passing grade, 5, because my like for Jun Matsumoto was enough to drive me to finish the drama. There's no romance so it's mainly abt cooking.. I did like how they added the effect of mini titles to introduce different phases of his character's journey.
|Binbo Danshi [貧乏男子 (ボンビーメン)]|
Over the top.. [Rating: 2/10]
Sadly I'd have to say I watched one episode and stopped. It makes for VERY light viewing and only if one is a big fan of Oguri Shun but otherwise I'd give it a miss =( His character was simply too exaggerated to the point it was ridiculously annoying rather than funny..
|Erai Tokoro ni Totsuide Shimatta! [エラいところに嫁いでしまった!]|
Only if you've got time to kill [Rating: 4/10]
It's not very funny and the storyline is nothing much, but it's just for light viewing.
|Hachimitsu to Kuroba [ハチミツとクローバー]|
Funny & heartwarming [Rating: 8/10]
I actually quite liked this drama. The characters really hit it off for me! I'm a fan of the anime (having watched that first) and I was REALLY pleased with how each actor matched their character perfectly!! A nice watch indeed <3
|Hanazakari no Kimitachi e [花ざかりの君たちへ]|
Loved it!!! [Rating: 10/10]
I'd have to say this will probably be my favourite jdrama of 2007 XD Although its a high school drama and it follows a repetitive structure (the students had some mission almost every episode) the characters were so colourful and endearing that it was really hard not to get drawn into the drama! It's packed with HEAPS of laughs~ The soundtrack is great~ And I was thoroughly pleased with the ending X)
|Hotaru no Hikari [ホタルノヒカリ]|
Cute <3 [Rating: 8/10]
Really cute and funny <3 Ayase Karuka plays the role of a himono onna so well!! And I really liked Fujiki Naohito's acting in this one! I found the relationship between Amemiya and Teshima quite boring but I absolutely LOVED the interaction between Amemiya and Takano (aka Buucho~!)
|Kekkon Dekinai Otoko [結婚できない男]|
Quirky fun fun fun! [Rating: 8/10]
I wouldn't usually pick this drama but I enjoyed it to the end! Don't be turned away by the seemingly slow pace because by the end of the first episode you should be drawn in. Abe Hiroshi did such an excellent job (an actual likable version of House!) I also loved the two female characters Natsumi and Michiru (she's real cute!), not to mention KEN-CHAN<3!!! But then again I'm a dog lover so maybe I'm biased ^^ All in all it's funny and light, with a dash of romance - something I'd watch over again and again!
|Last Christmas [ラストクリスマス]|
One of the better love stories [Rating: 7/10]
It's a cliche story line (with a bit of a twist ^^) but the 2 main leads pulled it off real well. Oda Yuji was really great in his role! Overall it has its funny moments, touching moments, tearjerker moments too- so stay tuned til the ending! I enjoyed seeing it through, especially with the great ost!!
|Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]|
A nice drama [Rating: 6/10]
The drama is not just about food because it looks deeper into the main character and investigates her past and that made for a more interesting storyline. My lesser rating of it was due to the fact that the story got too complicated as too many people got involved in the one situation so that by the very end of the drama the situation wasn't fully solved.. And so the ending wasn't really an ending?! I'm still left guessing which ticket she chose ><.. But I'm also left with a craving for omuraisu <3
|Oh! My Girl!! [オー！マイ・ガール！！]|
Got better but still just 'nice' [Rating: 5/10]
I admired Yoshida Riko's performance and it was good to see Hayami Mokomichi display some diversity (last time I saw him was in Zettai Kareshi so he definitely got to express more with this character!) The storyline does have a rather nice twist which makes it more interesting but don't expect too much, all in all it's just a light filler drama~
|Proposal Daisakusen [プロポーズ大作戦]|
Great show <3 [Rating: 9/10]
I simply love this show~~ Even though it's abit draggy because Kenzo can't confess for the most part of 11 episodes T_T And theres that lamo 'hallelujah' chorus refrain whenever he goes back. It's still a thoroughly enjoyable drama~! I love the mini stories and the characters such as Tsuru are so funny and heartwarming. It's a really nice drama which I'd definitely recommend X) The OST is really awesome too!!
Silly and repetitive [Rating: 2/10]
I was interested bcoz of the actors but each episode follows the same old routine which gets tiring real fast. I just watched so I could finish it.. although it was more a waste of time U_U
Interesting enough [Rating: 7/10]
Kamenashi Kazuya played his role well! He's heaps funny =D And I really enjoyed looking into the advertising world~ The soundtrack also had some really nice songs! The only thing I thought they didnt pull off well was the relationship between him and Itoh Misaki..
|Yama Onna Kabe Onna [山おんな壁おんな]|
Enjoyable! [Rating: 8/10]
I actually didn't mind this drama? Sure it was all about boobs but it was quite funny in parts and Itoh Misaki's acting has indeed become less stiff! I'd recommend it for laughs~ I really liked how they developed the relationship between Aoyagi and Iguchi <3 I also love the ending theme by Exile (the piano version of it was really nice!)
|Yamada Taro Monogatari [山田太郎ものがたり]|
Quite funny [Rating: 7/10]
I liked this drama because I thought Nino did great in his role as a humble older brother (an-chan!) who cared way too much for his family~ I didn't really like Tabe Mikako as the main actress bcoz her acting was too exaggerated (although I did sort of get used to her in the end) also Sugiura falling in love with Yamada was lame and Torri-sensei's 24/7 anxiety attacks got old too soon.. Overall the story wasn't put together brilliantly but there were some pretty funny episodes, such as the maid and supermarket episodes~ I loved Yamada calling "shishou~~!" ^^
|Yuukan kurabu [有閑倶楽部]|
Not too bad [Rating: 5/10]
It wasn't as great as I was told but it got better once u got to know the characters. Yuri really grew on me and I loved Miroku's overly sensitive side and Bido's inability to fight ^^
|Zettai Kareshi [絶対彼氏]|
Got better in the second half! [Rating: 6/10]
I wasn't that interested at first but after the first few episodes Tenjo Night really grew on me (I REEALLY loved Hayami Mokomichi's portrayal of a robot~!!) it was certainly laugh out loud funny in parts but Aibu Saki kinda annoyed me.. maybe it's her acting style but I couldn't take her srsly most of the time (even when it called for it) bcoz she always looked like she was on the verge of laughing?? But fortunately she pulled it together in the last episode.. All in all it was a good watch!
