1 Pound no Fukuin [１ポンドの福音] I like it so far. I won't be surprised if other KATTUN members have cameos as Kamenashi's opponents. I hope they make a live action Hajime no Ippo now
Gokusen 2 [ごくせん２] Well, the fact that she had to keep her yakuza identity a secret until the end of the first season is what made the series really enjoyable and at the edge of your seat. I don't get why her yakuza status is still a big deal.
Seija no koushin [聖者の行進] i just did some research and learned that this was based on a true story that happened in 1996 or 1997. it's known as the mito incident. it's really shocking that what happened in this drama actually happened in real life

Ichihara Hayato [市原隼人] They should make a live action version to my favorite manga, Hajime no Ippo. He would soooooo make a good Ippo
Sakai Noriko [酒井法子] I loved her performances of the Video Girl Ai soundtrack. And she looked so pretty in those interviews of the anime all those years ago.
Shinohara Ryoko [篠原涼子] i can't believe she's the same shinohara ryoko that sang the japanese theme to the street fighter ii anime, itoshisa to setsunasa to kokoro tsuyosa to
Yoshizawa Hisashi [吉沢悠] Even though he was in his mid 20s in Ace wo Nerae, I was convined he was still a teen in that role. But Filipino singer/actor Joseph Bitangol looks a lot like him.

Algernon ni Hanataba o [アルジャーノンに花束を] Rating: 9/10 (Watched) I've seen most of the series but not all of it. It was one of my favorite novels I read in high school and this drama is faithful to the original novel in it's own right. I loved how Yusuke Santa Maria conveyed Haru as being funny, heart warming, and emotional. My only problem was the teaching crying every episode.
Algernon ni Hanataba o [アルジャーノンに花束を] FLowers for Algernon [Rating: 9/10] I read the novel back in high school and loved it. I saw most of the series when I went to Japan (saw up to 6 I believe) but still loved it. I loved Santa Maria's portrayal as Haru and did a good job. I just didn't like how the teacher cried every episode.
