29-sai no Kurisumasu [29歳のクリスマス] My first Tomoko's dramas. She's so funny and I love her since this one. The drama is cute, plus it's about Christmas with Mariah Carey's perfect theme song "All I want for Christmas is You".
Hitotsu yane no shita 1 [ひとつ屋根の下 1] I was going to put both of the series in here, but I don't want to waste my only 9 dramas :). This is a great family dramas, I think all people should watch this dramas. The tragic accident, the happy moment, everything that a normal family would experience. Can't miss this!
Kimi ga oshietekureta koto [君が教えてくれたこと] Disable people are as important as normal human being. They have their own specialty that normal people need to acknowledge with time, so this drama is very good in the sense that, no matter how disable a certain person is, respect is still needed and if you listen to the person carefully, you'll understand them eventually.
Koi wo nan nen sundemasu ka? Another family story but for older generation. Great morale comes out from this drama. True love is always important, no matter how old you are, it can still happen.
Koori no sekai [冰の世界] The casts are amazing and the plot makes it even higher standard. I think this is the best recent dramas that I watched. I feel old dramas are the best, but this is one of the three newer dramas that I listed in here. Such a mystery, yet it almost unsolvable unless you keep remembering all the scenes and why it happened that way. Very captivating.
Kou kou kyoushi [高校教師] This is one of the sickest dramas out there for normal people, as everyone said it brought up the controversial issue in Japan. However, this drama plot is so great that you always curious of what is happening next and you're so glued to the dramas until the end. From my point of view, the story may be crazy, but the characters were so perfect that it flows so nicely.
Long vacation [ロングバケーション] Actually I didn't like this one when I first watched it. I always wondered why ppl liked this story so much, until I watched again for the second time. I think it taught people a lesson on how to love someone and how certain people hurts another person's feeling even when they didn't realize that they did it. I love Kimura Takuya's last piano performance, it was terrific.
Oshin [おしん] Nothing compared to this one and only morning dramas ever aired. It dubbed in so many languages and nobody could even remember. My country, Indonesia, is one of them. The dramas took away people's attention as they had breakfast or as they prepared to go to work in the morning. The emotional and moral value of this story is so huge that it became, I think, the first Japanese drama that captured the attention of ppl in my country.
Saikou no kataomoi [最高の片想い] Gotta love Motoki Masahiro and Eri Fukatsu in here. They are such a cute couple. One-sided love that ended so perfect, I love good ending story and I hate that girl who always messed up people's life, I forgot her name, but she played those kind of roles most of the time, both in Tokyo Love Story and here.

Adachi Yumi [安達祐実] She's a cute artist, a great acting in Ienakiko and always look for her dramas, though I like her performance in Garasu no Kamen 1, but it's still far from what I was expecting as I like the comic.
Fukada Kyoko [深田恭子] I think she can't act great, but I like her as she's not thin like the rest of the Japanese artists. She's chubby and yet she's famous, so I like her.
Kanno Miho [菅野美穂] I actually didn't like her much, especially her looks in Koi ga Shitai 3x, I thought she's ugly. However, after watching Kimi no tega Sasayate Iru where she played the mute girl, boy, I am impressed. She's actually pretty and act so well, I mean impressive. I have to respect her.
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉] A great actor, definitely none out there like him. He could play an innocent guy to a very dark role that he played in "Million stars ...". I think he is one of the great actors who didn't use his look, but pretty much of his acting and most of his dramas are praised.
Matsushima Nanako [松嶋菜々子] While Kimura is a great actor, she's a great actress and none out there like her. She could play a dark role to a very funny ones, like in Yamato. Plus, she's so TALL and pretty, so it's a great combination.
Takizawa Hideaki [滝沢秀明] This one is a good comparison with Kyoko, though I don't like them put together like in SOS. He's a cute guy who grew up getting bigger and bigger. His looks is definitely what makes him a star, then he sings, man, he is a complete man :).
Yamaguchi Tomoko [山口智子] As for this one, I think she's one of the actresses who doesn't age out so well, I mean her looks are always so good to see and young. I like her acting too.
Asunaro hakusho [あすなろ白書] Great Plot [Rating: 9/10] What an Ordinary Life! This drama is very good in captivating the audience for each episode and I love this drama, but Kake is so not appreciated Narumi's feelings, hat that part! But overall, totally worth watching drama!!!
Futari [二人] GREAT STORYLINE [Rating: 9/10] Eventhough it's in Chinese subtitle, I understand the whole story. It was suukooi... Mika is so weak that Chizuko has to help her as a ghost. It was so sad that Mika always got bullied by the sen pai, but overall, a worth watch drama, definitely.
Ienaki ko 1 [家なき子] Ienakiko ! [Rating: 8/10] This is a very good plot, but the settings for a 10years old, I think it's too far, but the story is very sad and demanding you to watch the continuance, so it's worth watching when you really just want to watch something sad. I don't recommend this when you are down and blue. Makes you feel worse
Kamisama mou sukoshi dake [神様、もう少しだけ] Definitely 2 Thumbs UP [Rating: 10/10] Gotta watch this, very dramatic, nice plot of story, always keep you intact with TVs and never want to stop. Touching ending, highly recommended for those who loves DRAMA, Romance and high school crush.
Pure [ビュア] Simply Innocent [Rating: 8/10] Great Choice for Wakui Emi to star in this dorama, her face is so innocence and you can see throughout the whole drama. The storyline is good and makes you understand how people with lower IQ should be treated. Gotta watch and see how Wakui Emi really looked that innocent.
Saikou no kataomoi [最高の片想い] Great storyline [Rating: 10/10] Good performance and Eri Fukatsu is so Kawaii in this dorama. Gotta watch this, too bad not so many people know this drama, it's really good...
