GTO [麻辣教師] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) I didn't liked this drama that much. I found Sorimachi Takashi 's acting kind of irritating. Because of that weird smile of his al the time. This drama can never compare to the anime which displays a totally different and richer character for Onizuka Eikichi then displayed in this drama. I remember laughing my ass off watching the anime, hoping to keep laughing with GTO in this tv adoptation, i really got dissapointed. I prefer the Gokusen drama above the GTO drama, with all the respect to the very good Gokusen drama, shouldn't make any sense at all.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) This was the first jdorama i've ever seen, which enabled me to watch many more. I have to say this is one of my favorite drama's. The acting is superb, especially: Yamashita Tomohisa and Horikita Maki. The friendship of the three main characters is real and pure, not based on things that really don't matter. Their acting made it look and feel real. The ending was really sad, because I wanted them to stay together. This is a must watch, if you can still identify with high school students, or want to go back to those younger years ;)
Sailor Fuku to Kikanju [セーラー服と機関銃] Rating: 9/10 (Watched) I don't understand the low ratings this series is getting reading the comments from this site. I thought it was a really great series. Perhaps it's because i haven't seen the original movie. Watching this series was the first time i got in thouch with this story. Although i agree Nagasawa Masami being a bit of a cry baby in the series. But the acting was great, not forgetting the amazingly emotional background music, which altogether almost got a tear out of me (which doesn't happen very often) after each episode. Because of the good acting, as a watcher, you can identify with the characters, and wish them happiness. Each life that's lost from the small yakuza group is a sad experience. Eventhough i wished the members a better faith, their death is in fact the strength of this tv-series. I recommend this tv-series to anyone who likes dramas filled with strong emotions en outstanding acting.

H2~Kimi to itahibi [２〜君といた日々] Baseball is great? [Rating: 9/10] This drama is great. Even if you don't like baseball, it's still amazing. The acting was done very well, although I didn't like Satomi's acting that much. She was better in waterboys. Eventhough this drama and its soundtrack is amazing, i feel some relationship development is missing. But it's still great.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子] Among the very best jdorama's [Rating: 10/10] Im glad i didn't watch the anime, because this drama is amazing. The acting is something i can't describe in words, the music is fantastic, and the story is refreshing. When i started watching this drama i felt like kicking Doumyouji's ass, but he completely turned that feeling around, which makes me admire Jun's acting. And who wouldn't fall in love with Tsukushi, especially when she hit Doumyouji.... hard ;)
If you haven't seen this drama, watch it now!!! You will love it :D
Tiger & Dragon [タイガー＆ドラゴン] Genius [Rating: 10/10] This drama is absolutely brilliant. It's absolutely one of my altime favorites. The script is innovative, the comedy hillarious and the acting is superb. Nagase Tomoya plays the yakuza character as a natural. This series showed me an unfamiliar side to japanese culture and a great form of entertainment. After watching this show you'll speak the following words for several weeks: DON DON DON!!!,... Tiga Tiga Gilletiga... Tiga Anduu Duragon!!! And you'll be licking your lips in exaggerated manner somehow XD
