Takei Emi [武井咲] Really stood out in Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta and from there has slowly been choosing different roles to act in. She is one of the best young actresses I've seen in the Japanese industry.
Kaseifu no Mita [家政婦のミタ] Rating: 9/10 (Watched) The growth of each character is one of the strongest points of this drama. The main issue seems to take a secondary role in comparison to the problems going on at the moment. This drama is made unlike any I've ever seen before. You really make a connection with the family.
Nagareboshi [流れ星] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Ueto Aya's coming out role to me. I've seen her in mediocre roles and just when I thought she was going to be in that zone forever, Nagareboshi came along and showed a different side. The plot is okay, but I liked the acting mainly.
Nodame Cantabile [のだめ カンタビ−レ] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Wish I could give this more of a 8.5/10. This j-drama is one of the funniest shows I've seen. The music is very nice to hear. The romance is very cute
