Summer snow

Ueto Aya [上戸彩]
A very beautiful and up and coming star in Japan. She's already established her name and is gaining popularity rapidly. She can sing, she can act, she can simply do it all. My favorite J-idol!! :D

Akimahende! [あきまへんで!]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Not exactly your Oyaji typical family drama but very good nonetheless. It had so many comedic moments throughout the show consistently. A very happy drama to watch and it was a lot better than I expected.
Antique [アンティーク〜西洋骨董洋菓子店]
Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched)
The food looked great! Can't say the same about the story though :(
Beautiful life [ビューティフルライフ]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Simply one of the best dramas out there! So happy yet so sad at the same time. I was glued to my seat during this drama. Amazing performances by Tokiwa Takako and Kimura Takuya
Bijo ka Yajuu [美女か野獣]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Very nice drama. Nanako simply looked great and the music was very nice too! I got kind of bored during some parts but overall, not bad.
Bus stop [バスストップ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
I want to give your life a ride! What a great drama that features Naoko Iijima at her best and a lovely supporting cast. This is one of those love stories that happens on TV :P Fun to watch!
Dekichatta Kekkon [できちゃった結婚]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Hmm now where do I start? Well great comedy and storyline. A very touching drama but comedic at the same time. Not only was Ryoko and Yutaka great but so was the supporting cast! A must watch! Oh and the music in this kicks ass!
Densha Otoko [電車男]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
A true underdog story! This drama was so funny and exciting the whole way. I was on the edge of my seat screaming along with the other characters of the show. Itoh Misaki was simply ravishing and Itoh Atsushi was down right hilarious! Best drama of the year!
Food fight [フードファイト]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
FOOD!!! Food dramas are great! Unfortunately most food dramas don't have a very great plot and this one didn't either. It was entertaining but a bit predictable.
Fuufu [夫婦。]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
A nice little story about married couples and relationships. Although it features 2 ravishing beauties in Kuroki Hitomi and Kato Ai, the story lacks punch and doesn't deliver as a top drama. Aesthetically it's awesome, but plot-wise, it could use a little more.
Gokusen [ごくせん]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
So funny the whole way! Nakama Yukie fits the role of the gokusen perfectly! Quite a popular drama from its anime roots. It's definately one that jdrama fans and otakus should watch together.
Golden Bowl [ゴールデンボウル]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
"Yes!" says Hitomi Kuroki and yes this drama is a good one. The music and dry humor is weird at times but the story is exciting and left me wanting more from the relationship of the 2 main characters. Kuroki is as charming as ever in this one and Kaneshiro Takeshi plays a great lead. A nice little underrated drama that you all should watch, especially those who enjoy bowling.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック!!]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
An excellent drama about pilots! Very interesting and exciting all throughout. Shibasaki Kou was very cute and lively! She's the best behind Aya-chan :P A great supporting cast to go with Kou and Kimutaku as well. I think I want to be a pilot now! Good Luck!
GTO [麻辣教師]
Rating: 10/10
What can I say about this? It seriously is THAT good! To summarize it briefly, Sorimachi at his best! Very inspirational, funny, and entertaining!
H2~Kimi to itahibi [2〜君といた日々]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Originally based off the manga, H2 delivers in excitment, humor, and love story. Yamada Takayuki plays a great lead and who could resist falling in love with Ishihara Satomi? Tanaka Koutaro and Ichikawa Yui play a good supporting pair as well. Go H2!
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
It's about time the Japanese made a live action drama of this beautiful story! Inoue Mao plays the role of Tsukushi Makino perfectly and her cuteness is beyond words. The weak part of this drama is that it's only 9 episodes and I was sad to see the drama change some things from the original manga. Nonetheless, a must see!
Handoku [ハンドク]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
Subtle humor but a very weird show overall. If it wasn't for Rina's beauty, this show would totally be a waste to watch.
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
A great drama about law. Matsu Takako and Takuya Kimura work great together but not nearly as good as their performances in Love Generation. However, with a strong supporting cast this show is pretty good.
Hoshi no kinka 1 [星の金貨]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Started off a bit slow but really picked up quickly. Sakai Noriko, Osawa Takao, and Takenouchi Yutaka all delivered stellar performances. The supporting cast was great the whole way as well. It's no wonder why this drama received ratings into the 30% viewership. Definately a classic for the ages!
Hoshi no kinka Season 2 / Zoku hoshi no kinka [續。星の金貨]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
They should have stopped at the first! The 2nd just complicated things even more. It's not that the actors/actress performed bad, the story just sucked. Not worth your time here...
Hotman [ホットマン]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Amazing all the way through! Yet another hit by Sorimachi! For family dramas, this could possibly rival Oyaji! Akiko-chan looked great too ;)
Hotman Season 2 [ホットマン2]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Combining the same heart warming story of the first season, Hotman 2 is a great series and another must watch! The story seems to lack a little here and there but Sorimachi again delivers his best.
Itsumo futari de [いつもふたりで]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Maybe a modern day rendition of Long Vacation but believe me, this drama is totally unique. Matsu Takako was great as always and Sakaguchi Kenji performed well as the lead actor. Hasegawa Kyoko adds a very pretty face to this drama, while Eita and Hirayama Aya are just way too funny! Great drama here!
Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai [恋がしたい恋がしたい]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Miho Kano was cute but the show was a bit pointless. Not very convincing or entertaining. Descent at best...
Koishite Shinitai [恋して死にたい]
Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
A little more hyped than anything. Maybe Dhomoto tsuyoshi's weakest performance and Kyoko was anything but convincing. The plot was ok, saved by reiko azechi though.
Koori no sekai [冰の世界]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
My eyes were glued to the screen the whole time. What an amazing show. I haven't seen a mystery this exciting! Nanako really showed her serioues side this time. Must watch!
Kou kou kyoushi [高校教師]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
The original Kou Kou Kyoushi is a legend in itself. The themes they touch on are a bit disturbing but true in everyday life. Sakurai Sachiko performs amazingly as the student and Sanada Hiroyuki fits his role well too. A must watch people!
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
An enchanting story right from the start that will get you hooked. Fujuki Naohito and the beautiful Aya Ueto make a great pair in this drama. Backed up with a strong supporting cast, this is a definate must watch! 10 all the way!
Last Christmas [ラストクリスマス]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
One of the most beautiful dramas I have ever seen in my life. The music and theme goes so well together. Oda Yuji is at the top of his game as always and Yada Akiko brings a break out performance in this one. No, this isn't just another corny Christmas drama, it's the real deal. Can be watched and enjoyed anytime ;)
Long vacation [ロングバケーション]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
All dramas should start and end here. Purely the best drama out there of all time! An all star cast with an all star plot. Everything was so perfect! If you plan to watch only 1 drama in your life, then watch this one!
Love generation [ラブジェネレーション]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
An emotional rollercoaster the whole way. Matsu Takako and Kimutaku were great! Very beautiful and absolutely worth watching!
Majo no jouken [魔女の条件]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Very addicting storyline and a beautiful plot. There were many strong messages in this show, which was anchored by the strong vocals of Utada Hikaru. A classic!
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Goto Maki is too quite in her first drama and the series itself lacks an overall plot. They do have nice and touching subplots but that's pretty much it. Pretty girls but not enough...
Meguri ai [めぐり逢い]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The pairing of Fukuyama Masaharu and Tokiwa Takako was great but the writers should have stopped at ep 6. The story goes in circles and it's a roller coaster of a ride. Sometimes toooo unbelievable. Very sappy.
Moto Kare [元カレ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
The long awaited Moto Kare is now here! As from the title, you can guess what happens. Hirosue Ryoko is a bit bitchy in the beginning but you learn to love her. Uchiyama Rina is the little angel but you start to hate her later. This series plays on your emotions and is worth watching.
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Best drama I have seen in ages! Nagasa Tomoya is so funny in this and don't forget about his co-star, the very underrated Takeuchi Yuko. They both made a great 1-2 punch in this very touching drama and the plot was very sincere too. Also kudos to the rest of the all star cast. My new number 1 drama! :D
My Little Chef
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Talk about good food and a sweet story line! My Little Chef is an excellent drama for both food lovers and drama lovers alike. Akiko was very cute as was my Aya-chan!
Otousan [おとうさん]
Rating: 9/10 (Watched)
Ah the classic dad tamaru Masakazu. I liked him better in Oyaji but with 4 beautiful ladies, how can anyone not like this drama!?!? A strong plot and good acting, maybe too many stars and not enough screen time though.
Oyaji~ [オヤジぃ]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
The best family drama IMO! An all star cast for an all star family. Ok that was cliche but the whole drama was amazing. A very great message on morality and the theme of family was knit into every episode. Must watch!
Pride [プライド]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Having seen so many Kimutaku dramas, this one is certainly similar to his other ones. He's as arrogant as always but what I liked about this drama was Takeuchi Yuko and also the music! It's really a great drama and worth watching!
Seikei Bijin [整形美人。]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Started off a bit slow but finished very strongly! Contains very strong messages in this drama mixed in with some good comedy. Ryoko really put this drama on her back and carried it through. Great performance by her and Konishi Manami is one messed up girl in this one :P
Strawberry on the shortcake [ストロベリー・オンザ・ショートケーキ]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
Really weird. Again it was saved by Rina. Not a strong plot but it'll keep you entertained.
Summer snow
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Ryoko and Dohmoto were great together! An unbelievable drama the whole way! I would watch this over and over again and still love it!
Tokyo Wankei [東京湾景]
Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched)
Started off so nicely but then turned sour. Nakama Yukie gives a great performance nonetheless and it's nice to see her show off her serious side. The music was very beautiful and I still say this one is worth watching! ;)
Trick [トリック]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
Very entertaining and interesting drama. It's really suspenseful with great music! Abe Hiroshi as always brings a lot of laugh and life to this drama and Nakama Yukie is WAY TOO CUTE!!!
Trick Season 2 [トリック2]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
If you liked Trick 1, then you will love Trick 2! Basically it has everything Trick 1 has but more intricate and deeper storylines, better animations, and the same good ole comedy. Nakama Yukie and Abe Hiroshi's performances are both top notch as usual. A great sequel! "Come Over, Spiritual Phenomena!"
Trick Season 3 [トリック3]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
In the 3rd installment of this legendary series, Nakama Yukie and Abe Hiroshi are nothing short of stellar. The same comedic humor and thrilling mysteries were present as ever in this series. In my opinion, this is the best of the 3! "Why don't you do your best?"
Utsukushii hito [美しい人]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
A very interesting and exciting drama the whole way. Tokiwa Takako was ravishingly beautiful in this drama and Tamura Masakazu played a good male lead. Osawa Takao really adopted his villain role well. One of the better dramas of our time. Go and watch!
Virgin Road [バージンロード]
Rating: 10/10 (Watched)
Amazing the whole way! It was an emotional roller coaster til the end! Sorimachi was good but Wakui Emi was the glue to this show. Her performance was beyond breath taking. Truly one of the best actress in this day in age.
Wedding Planner [ウエディングプランナー]
Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched)
What a beautiful drama! It was full of very touching stories that nearly made me cry. The music went very well with it and I liked how this drama didn't just focus on Iijima Naoko and Yusuke Santamaria, but actually used a VERY strong supporting cast. One of the more underrated dramas out there so go watch!
Yamato Nadeshiko [やまとなでしこ【大和撫子】]
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
A brilliant plot and a great cast led by Matsushima Nanako. This drama was so funny and serious at important times. Definately one for the ages. Yada Akiko played a good supporting act and as boring as Tsutsumi Shinichi is, he was pretty descent in this one.
