Antique [アンティーク〜西洋骨董洋菓子店] Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched) Very unique show and not-like what its title suggest, Antique. This is about a boss, shy chef, and an ex-boxer who comes together to try to create a great cake-shop. Delicious-looking cakes!
Big wing [ビッグウイング] Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched) Quite a meaningful show. Depicting how a girl, who just wants to do her part in an airport well, just gets into trouble and all. Would be quite boring to some people.
Dekichatta Kekkon [できちゃった結婚] Rating: 5/10 (Watched) Have no idea why but this is one of my least fave. doramas. Maybe it's the hype about this show that resulted in my disappointment when I watched this show.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！] Rating: 9/10 (Bought & Watched) This drama rocks! It's not overly draggy nor does the lead (Kimura Takuya) preach and all after each episode unlike some dramas I watch. It flows smoothly and you can see the growing up of the young co-pilot (Kimura) and the jobs nature of the other people who are involved. Great stuff!
Heisei meoto jawan ~ dokechi no hanamichi Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Very nice and touching dorama with each episode beginning and ending with how much the family owes money. Cute ways of saving money too! Eventually, the leads begin to analyse their love for each other.
Hero Rating: 9/10 (Watched) A great show with Kimura trying to solve cases (when it wasn't part of his job in the first place) in extraordinary ways. Very worth the time to watch this, it just lacks in the romance department.
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) I adore the show! Partly because the plot was very interesting and also because of the change in character in Sakurabara/Arai Yuichiro when he is working and at home.
Nurseman [ナースマン] Rating: 5/10 (Bought & Watched) Story progressed not what I expected. Kind of regretted buying it because it's pretty boring and gets on my nerves after some time.
Over Time [オーバー・タイム] Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched) One of my favourite drama of all time! Very great plot and acting. Though the two leads did not get together in the end, we can see that loving another does not mean to have him/her. Touching and realistic unlike the other happily-ever-after doramas.
Wedding Planner [ウエディングプランナー] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) I find this a great show with a great song to match! This show is all about marriage and falling in love with the right person.

Big wing [ビッグウイング] not bad a show [Rating: 8/10] the show overall is great... a pity there isn't a more elaboration on kassy's role when he just joined Big Wing, what happened between the two of them, and there isn't much of a funny element in it. But the plot is great, endearing and Yuki has a GREAT smile. Yes, and Kassy has grown up ever since the Naoki role, but isn't he a little too thin? (but still cute)
Dekichatta Kekkon [できちゃった結婚] Disappointment [Rating: 5/10] Have no idea why but this is one of my least fave. doramas. Maybe it's the hype about this show that resulted in my disappointment when I watched this show.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！] Brilliant but... [Rating: 9/10] The plot is very good with no preaching unlike in 'Big Wing' or other dramas and the pace is not slow nor fast. It is like wine which tastes better as it goes. The acting is brilliant! The cast protray their characters out perfectly! Kimura Takuya is brilliant in this drama as a convincing pilot. I'd give it a 10 if not for the fact that I think that they look more like siblings instead of a couple... Gomen...
Hero wow... [Rating: 9/10] i watched it for the plot though i must admit that takuya kimura looks cute... haha! the cast is alright but i'm starting to get sick of the takuya-takako pair-up... (they look great of course)
i love the rest of the cast too. they have a different story which they do not want others to know. and when they shut their doors after some conversation, it's like shutting out the whole world from urself. i love kuryu's office and all the wacky things he buy. and as sarafina has pointed out, kuryu's colleagues are so weird that he is normal. it's an enjoyable show and the romantic element is nicely blended into the entire story without emphasizing too much on it. i realised it's becoming more of the trend of the japanese drama scripts to simply add some romantic element into the main focus of the show nowadays
Itazura na Kiss [イタズラなKiss] entertaining... [Rating: 9/10] it is a great show and kassy is VERY cute! it's funny, and very fairy-tale like. imagine staying in the same house as ur dreamguy! by the way, my friends and i were discussing the mixed feelings naoki had about kotoko by the second episode so i dun find the ending THAT abrupt. true, there's not much development in terms of how naoki changed, the period of naoki studying in the university and kotoko's in the nursing school. pity there isn't a part 2 on their marriage life. anyway, the story in the manga is quite unlike the show but i dun find it a pity!
Mukodono! [ムコ殿/女婿大人] GREAT!!! [Rating: 9/10] I adore the show! Partly because the plot was very interesting and also because of the change in character in Sakurabara/Arai Yuichiro when he is working and at home.
