I couldn't get past the first episode. It's painful to watch how hard this drama tries to be "different". It lacks the subtlety and heart that Trick possesses that reels people in and makes the franchise a hit. Everybody is comparing this to Trick, so I thought I would too. Although, it's an unworthy comparison.

Rating: 7/10 (Watched)
It was a good, not great drama. I agree with the user that said the drama lost focus. The writer wrote such meaningful dialogue, but failed to make the characters live by what they preach. It was a little discouraging and hypocritical to see the characters return to their old behavioral patterns time and time again. I think this would have been a slightly better drama if the writer had focused more character development and depth, (Why don't these characters have any friends!?) less on the love triangles. The plot and the characters ran around for far too many episodes for me to score this any higher than a 7.

M no Higeki [Mの悲劇]

Ridiculous from the get-go. It was fun to watch for a little while, but eventually the cracks in the script became more glaring. Dropped it in the middle of episode 3. Bad script, bad acting, OTT cartoonish characters. If you're looking for a serious mystery, this isn't the drama to go with (my mistake).

Suna No Utsuwa [砂の器]

12 minutes into episode 3 and I have decided to call it quits. The storyline execution is too draggy and mind numbing for my liking. I really don't have a desire to wait around multiple episodes to see when and if the pacing does pick up. It's not a terrible drama, it's just not captivating enough.

Tentai Kanzoku [天体観測]

Dropped it at the end of episode 5. I really really wanted to like this drama, but I couldn't. This drama is too cheesy and it portrays friendship in an unrealistic manner. Sometimes support from friends isn't enough to solve your problems. The fact that these characters were so easily uplifted and driven to turn over a new leaf by such simple means is very unrealistic. Human beings are not that simple minded, I hate that they're portrayed in such a way in this drama. I can understand why this drama performed badly in the ratings- the characters have no complexity or depth. It's clear the writer was rather young when he or she wrote this. That's the only thing that could explain the idealistic mindset of these characters. Real 25 year olds aren't this naive.

spazzy06's drama reviews (5)
Deep Love ~ Ayu No Monogatari [アユの物語]
It could have been better [Rating: 6/10]
Eh...it was a "decent" tribute to the manga. I don't believe the screenwriter captured the full essence of Deep Love (unapologetic and hopelessness) but I have to give them credit for nailing the characters down. They were perfect IMO and because of that I can overlook the screenwriter's attempt at trying to make this a dark comedy. (when it clearly isn't) If you're serious about watching this drama, I'd strongly suggest reading the manga Deep Love: Ayu No Monogatari beforehand.
Guilty Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna [ギルティ 悪魔と契約した女]
The screenwriter is no Shakespeare [Rating: 3/10]
Poor character development, poor romance development. Overall, Guilty is a poor drama. I couldn't take anything in this drama seriously, especially that joke of an ending. What a useless drama. I learned nothing from it and apparently neither did the characters.
Itoshi Kimie [愛し君へ]
Nothing special [Rating: 5/10]
Ugh. After hearing all the rave reviews, I was expecting a masterpiece. I guess my expectations were too high? I found Itoshi Kimie to be completely underwhelming. We've seen these characters before. We've seen this romantic set-up before. What annoyed me the most, overall, is that we have seen these plot points before. Rather than being touched by the inspiring dialogue, I found myself rolling my eyes at the unoriginality. Every aspect of this drama felt very contrived and forced. It was hard for me to make any emotional connection with these characters because they never felt like real human beings. It felt like they were just going through the motions, wherever the screenwriter would take them. As another poster said, you could have replaced his disease with any other life threatening one and you would have gotten the same result. And thatfsc.disappointing.
Ningen no Shoumei [人間の証明]
Call me overly sensitive, BUT... [Rating: ?/10]
This drama is too racist and too stereotypical for my liking. I just finished episode 2 and I don't think I can watch anymore. I find the writing too offensive and over the top.
Sunao ni Narenakute [素直になれなくて]
Biggest 'WTF?' of 2010 so far [Rating: 3/10]
I didn't expect such sloppy work from Kitagawa Eriko. It felt like I was watching Last Friends, the awkward version. The characters were given dirty little secrets just for the sake of having dirty little secrets. There were too many subplots thrown in that left me saying "What was the point of that?"
