smiles [Rating: ?/10]
I am absolutely loving this drama so far. Okay, so I actually started watching it because Nishikido Ryo is in it....but my reasons to continue watching are not only because of him...really! The story is very cute and I can't help but smile while watching it. I was surprised to see Aya as a tough tomboy type of girl striving to become a cabin attendant...but she is super good at it! Very likeable. Will edit and rate when completed.

watched it but... [Rating: 8/10]
never really got into it. The story seemed interesting, but for some reason I didn't really grow to like the characters I guess. I give it an 8 because there were some funny moments that really made me laugh. Bunch of goofy friends in this drama. Goofy friends and awkward moments between couples and ex-es. Haha amusing.

super touching [Rating: 10/10]
This is one of those dramas that I found really inspiring. I cried so much while watching this drama. I really liked how they showed all the kids in the hospital helping and supporting each other all the time. They were so close, like a family. Very touching. All the children, especially Yuka-chan did amazing jobs at portraying their characters.

super funny! [Rating: 10/10]
Wow I had so much fun watching this drama. Originally, I was planning to skip this one, but everyone talked about how good it was...so fortunately, I gave in! It's a cute and funny story. And all the otaku stuff and gosh...just everything about it made me laugh like crazy. The computer chat room scenes were very funny and sweet...except densha annoyed me a bit after a while with all that stuttering and crying. I also liked how I was able to relate to the characters who had online friends because of similar interests and situations. Very fun to watch

so funny [Rating: 8/10]
Okay. i have to admit that when i first saw the cm for this drama i was like "nooo i'm gonna hate it" Actually, it ended up being a pleasant surprise. The story is cute and so are the pets. chobi is adorable. it's sorta strange and the story...well, its unique. But for some reason, I end up finding myself really happy while watching it. Lots of laughing.

fun [Rating: 10/10]
I have a weakness for high school dramas, or , actually, school dramas in general. I think the advice given in this drama is very good and it focuses on friendship and working together. cute drama. liked it very much.

hmm... [Rating: 8/10]
I probably wouldn't have watched this drama if I wasn't a fan of Yamada Takayuki, but it was an exciting drama overall. Some of the scenes were so sad. I loved the ending theme, michishirube by orange range.
|Gokusen 2 [ごくせん２]|
entertaining [Rating: 9/10]
This drama...gosh it was a bit strange at times, but touching. Very touching. It is very entertaining...even though a bit corny at times. I can't really compare it to the first season because I never completed the entire thing, but it seemed very similar. My liking for this drama is probably influenced by my love for Akanishi Jin and Kamenashi Kazuya. I knew that they could sing and dance, but until this drama, I didn't know that they could act. It was cute, funny, and at times, stupid...yet entertaining. Its just fun to watch ^_^
loved it [Rating: 10/10]
I think GTO is a favorite of countless amounts of people. Seriously, it was sooo funny and touching at the same time! I watched it after watching Hotman, also starring Sorimachi, so it was really shocking to see the different characters haha. Unruly class, crazy teacher, lots of life lessons. Makes me wish that my teachers were a bit more like Onizuka-Sensei...He cared for his students so much! And its super cool to see actors when they were young...like Oguri Shun. I've watched this drama several times, and it is still good. Hope you enjoy it like I did.
|H2~Kimi to itahibi [２〜君といた日々]|
interesting even if you aren't a huge sports fan [Rating: 9/10]
I liked this drama a lot. At first, I was quite reluctant to watch it because I don't really like to watch baseball...or any other sports. But I found this drama extremely cute...and I am a huge fan of the artistes who star in it. I had a hard time deciding who I wanted to end up with who as far as the couples go...the love triangles are complicated and seem sort of bittersweet.
|Hana Yori Dango [花より男子]|
Cute! [Rating: 10/10]
I think I've watched this drama 3 times already. Although some of the stuff seems a bit unrealistic in it, it really is an adorable story. Very very cute. I planned to watch it only because Oguri Shun was in it, but then I realized how entertaining it actually was. I cried a little, and laughed a lot. I cannot compare it to meteor garden or the manga because I know nothing about neither of these versions, but I thought it was pretty good. I ended up changing my positions on who should be with who in the drama several times. The ending (for me) was really unpredictable and I was happy with it. Too bad it was so short!
|Haru to Natsu/Haru e Natsu [ハルとナツ]|
8 closer to 9 [Rating: 8/10]
This drama was sad sometimes and touching too
I got all teary-eyed in both the first and last episodes. The only thing I didn't like was that I thought it was a bit slow at times...and I never really had that "oh my gosh i neeeeed to see the next episode" kind of feeling. Maybe it would have been better if it was a bit shorter. But overall, it was a good drama and I learned stuff from it...also helped because Tsubasa was in it hehe. And the little girls were adorable!
|Haruka 17 [はるか 17]|
funny drama [Rating: 8/10]
This drama isn't my favorite or anything, but it IS entertaining. There are a lot of spoofs on other entertainment shows and companies, people, dramas, etc which are fun to look for. I started to get bored of it towards the middle of the series because the episodes seemed to run together, almost as if the same things happened every time. But it has shown me that life for idols isn't as easy as it seems it would be. It has definitely got me thinking, even though it seems like a goofy fun drama.
love triangles... [Rating: 8/10]
are interesting, but I just end up feeling so sorry for the characters. This drama was alright in my opinion. If I were to describe the story in one word, it would be: sad. It was also interesting for me to see how much society has changed. This drama aired when I was 2 years old! So I am watching it 13 years after it aired...thats pretty late haha. But it has a nice winter setting and left me feeling sorta empty and sad. I guess such feelings meant that I felt some kind of connection to the story right?
super touching [Rating: 10/10]
While watching this drama with my mom and brother, we all cried. The story was very good...I definitely felt bad for the family because they go through so much. I also loved the artists in this drama. Nanami-chan was sooo cute! Watching her talk to Enzo...awww don't you just want to hug her? This was one of my first dramas and I enjoyed it lots. And as soon as I think of this drama, the theme song pops into my head. Did I mention that I love that too?
|Ichi Ritoru no Namida [１リットルの涙]|
Prepare tissues [Rating: 10/10]
I think this drama is the saddest thing I have ever watched. I've never cried so much while watching anything. Almost every single episode I found tears dripping from my face. The acting was incredible. Erika did a great job in making the character Aya seem so loveable. The doctor and the family members acting skills were also very convincing. This drama also made me realize what a great actor Nishikido Ryo is as well. I didn't really like him nor hate him before watching 1 liter, but now I'm a big fan of his. The Aya x Haruto scenes were so sweet and adorable...thinking about it makes me smile.
The soundtrack of this drama makes it even more amazing. I loved the insert songs "KonaYuki" and "sangatsu kokonoka." The theme song is also very touching. I've watched it twice already and it was touching even the second time around. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
|Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます]|
Touching [Rating: 10/10]
I honestly hid under my huge blanket as I watched this drama to cover up the fact that I was sobbing while watching. It's a bit confusing at times, but the drama is simple and really touching! It really makes me interested in watching the movie.
|Itoshi Kimie [愛し君へ]|
amazing [Rating: 10/10]
I loved this drama. Although I had a really hard time watching it, I absoluetely loved it. Many of the people close to me (my father and friends) are visually impaired, which made this drama super painful for me to watch at times. I cried so much it. But it was really a beautiful drama. Sometimes a bit slow, but I really enjoyed it. Fujiki Naohito and Miho Kanno are really good actors. And I thought that the ending was just so touching and beautiful. It was also cool how they contrast nagasaki and tokyo. i recommend it.
|Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai Koi ga shitai [恋がしたい恋がしたい]|
cute [Rating: 9/10]
Although I would give this drama a 10, it probably really just deserves a 9 or so...because i am a bit biased...afterall, this was my first drama. Everything about this drama was pretty cute and a bit strange. I thought that all the characters were very interesting and the love triangle (or what ever shape all those relationships made) was confusing yet funny. It was my first and I really don't remember it all that well, but there are some super cute scenes that i probably won't ever forget. hope you enjoy it.
Enjoyable [Rating: 9/10]
This drama isn't one of my favorites or anything, but it was very unique. I got pretty into it while watching, often thinking and wanting to shout at the main character "how can you do that?!?! what about your son and wife?!?!" The ending was good, but a little strange. The scenery was seriously beautiful though. I remember that for some reason, as well as the hat that Atsuro Watabe wore (wow my memory is quite strange isn't it?).
interesting... [Rating: ?/10]
I'm currently watching this drama, and finding it very interesting. I'm really happy to see Maki and Yamapi act together again. The costumes make me laugh and some of the scenes have been close to bringing tears to my eyes. So far, I'm really enjoying it. Still haven't finished it, though, so I will save the rest of the review until later.
|Lunch no Joou [ランチの女王]|
fun [Rating: 9/10]
Although i haven't had the opportunity to complete the entire series, I found the episodes I did get to watch to be extremely enjoyable. At first I found the story a bit strange, but it is very funny. And the food that they eat looks super good, making the drama even more fun to watch. I hope that I get the opportunity to complete this series sometime soon.
|My Boss, My Hero [マイボスマイヒロ]|
Hilarious [Rating: 10/10]
When I first started watching this drama, I thought "this is sooo stupid." But I continued because I like the cast. I'm glad I did. I laughed and was brought to tears towards the end. It's fun.
|Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース]|
Loved it Lots [Rating: 10/10]
When I decided to watch this drama, it was really only because Kamenashi Kazuya and Yamashita Tomohisa were going to be in it. After watching a few episodes, I realized that I liked this drama, not only because of the actors, but because of the actual drama. It wasn't easy for me to predict the outcomes like I had been able to do in other dramas I have seen prior to this one.
I laughed out loud during some episodes, and cried during others. I absolutely loved watching this drama. (I've already watched it 3 times and I still love it). Some episodes seem a little long (the first one was longgg), but I still recommend it.
|Nyokei Kazoku [女系家族]|
eh... [Rating: 6/10]
I just couldn't get into this series. Every episode it just seemed like a whole bunch of drama where everyone is mad and mean to everyone else. In my opinion, the episodes were all very similar and I got bored of it quick...real quick. Sorry, but I just didn't enjoy watching this one.
|Oishii puropozu [おいしいプロポーズ]|
Not a huge fan [Rating: 6/10]
Well, I skipped several episodes of this drama as it aired on television and I didn't feel like I was missing very much. Some parts were corny and made me laugh...but I found it only "okay."
Boring at times [Rating: 7/10]
This drama didn't keep my interest enough for me to give it a higher score. I really like the actors but the story didn't appeal to me too much.
|Sarariman Kintaro 4 (TBS) [サラリーマン金太郎]|
didn't enjoy it [Rating: 6/10]
I rarely dislike dramas...But this one...gosh I don't know. Everything about it was just really...cheezy and stupid. I guess it was sort of entertaining, but I just couldn't get into it. Sorry.
|Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ]|
cried like crazy [Rating: 10/10]
Sekachuu was amazing. I was soo happy when I heard that it was going to air on tv because everyone talked about how good of a drama it was...and they were right. The characters, especially Aki, were just so lovable that you really feel some sort of connection with them and it makes you share their pain more. I liked it much better than the novel and everything about it was just beautiful. All the actors played their roles extremely well in my opinion.
|Shiawase No Shippo|
A bit slow... [Rating: 8/10]
I really thought that this story was going to be interesting...and in some ways it was...but other times, it was just too slow for me. I never really got super involved in the story. I was able to just watch certain episodes and I wouldn't really mind if I missed others.
wow... [Rating: 8/10]
ohmygosh this drama is just...wow. It makes me laugh a lot...the DB4 and everything. I would enjoy it more if it didn't focus so much on ecchi and all that dirty stuff, but its okay...I guess. It's hilarious, and seeing oguri shun act like that is so different than his summer snow performance. sometimes i don't really understand the point of some of the stuff that happens, but overall its an interesting drama.
|Suekko chounan ane san nin [末っ子長男姉三人]|
cute [Rating: 8/10]
Suekko Chounan ane san nin was a cute drama...cute characters, cute story. Some of it was a little cheezy...and most of the people I know who watched this found it too cheezy for their tastes, but I thought it was cute. I smiled a lot.
great [Rating: 10/10]
This is probably one of the best dramas I've seen. I watched it due to all of the great comments I read about it...and it lived up to everything I expected...actually more. It wasn't your typical love story type of sad drama with a typical ending, thus, it was very interesting to watch. If I had a list of memorable drama characters, I think Natsuo would be on it. The actors all portrayed their roles very well...and I found myself crying lots. The only thing I have to critique about this drama is the ending theme. As much as I love the song, sometimes it just didn't match the mood at the end of the episode. But it was still great. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
|Tatta Hitotsu no Koi [たったひとつの恋]|
Really cute [Rating: 10/10]
So, I probably wouldn't have started watching the drama if Kamenashi weren't in it, but I'm glad I stuck to it. It's a pretty love story, even though it doesn't seem very original and I began to love the characters (even though I found Nao extremely annoying at the beginning). And I love the ending theme.
|Tokyo Wankei [東京湾景]|
hontono watashi o mitsukete kuremasuka? [Rating: 9/10]
I probably will never forget that quote from this drama...
It seems like a lot of people didn't like this drama very much. It was actually pretty good in my opinion. First, I really like Nakama Yukie and this was the first time I saw her playing a serious, romantic person type role. (Previously, I watched her as quirky yamada and yankumi XD) Anyway, the story was okay. I got teary eyed in a few of the episodes. Some parts were a bit boring though...sorry. But I liked how they tied in her story with the mothers, and how the couple didn't care about cultural differences that many in Japan were concerned with. Some parts were slow, but overall it wasn't bad.
|Trick 2 [トリック2]|
interesting and funny [Rating: 9/10]
I watched this series of trick AFTER the third one...but anyway. It was pretty entertaining. I don't know how the producers came up with some of the stuff that is in there. I found some parts confusing and scary though (this is really lame...I know...but I had a nightmare about the face taxi from this series). But it was still fun to watch...different than any other drama series I've ever seen.
|Trick 3 [トリック3]|
Funny! [Rating: 9/10]
This drama is just so crazy! When I first started watching it, I knew nothing about the series, and just found myself confused. But then I started getting really into it, laughing at sooo much stuff. Although it was really funny, interesting, and unique, it isn't really my ideal type of drama (thus, the 9). But the puns and crazy characters really make this drama interesting and unique.
sorry... [Rating: 6/10]
I feel bad writing this....but, I really just couldn't get into this drama. Although many of my friends liked this drama and I respect their opinion on it, I just didn't like seeing a guy named Jimmy wearing a costume selling stuff on TV all the time. Some parts were funny, but it just wasn't my type of drama I guess.
|Water Boys 2 [ウォーターボーイズ2]|
super entertaining [Rating: 10/10]
I loved watching this drama. I thought it was a good combination between comedy and drama. Some parts were just so funny...and other times I found myself wanting to cry. This drama turned me into an Ichihara fan...and he and Satomi looked so cute together.
I liked the summer feel to it...and the theme song Niji fits well. Oh and did I mention how cool I thought the choreography was? It was just really fun in my opinion
|Wonderful Life [ワンダフルライフ]|
awwww [Rating: 8/10]
the little kids in this drama were just SOOO adorable! But that aside...I found this drama interesting. Sorimachi is one of my favorite actors and I was happy to watch him play in this...I loved the ending theme song.
