Okay, just finished it. It was the best J-drama I've seen in a while. I usually get annoyed with the wholesome too good to be true types, but I found Eiji wonderful. Probably because I loved the relationship between Eiji and Shizuka. I was wondering about the hood, too. And who the kid was at the en...

The funny thing about Kimura with me is that sometimes he looks drop dead gorgeous and other times not so much. I actually found him more physically attractive in his younger, long-hair days more than lately. In his latest drama Karei Naru... I didn't find him as physically attractive, but his actin...

I agree exactly with jholic. From my own feelings, and from what I gather from reading the anxious messages from other people, the episodes from the new shows are eagerly awaited and jumped on when they first come out, so seeders are prevalent. If the series is older and all the episodes are availab...

(ex. drama, love, comedy, fighting, relationships, family, law, hospital and so on) Drama, mystery, comedy. Pretty open as long as it sounds interesting. 3. Beside jdrama, which ...

If you like Hana Kimi then I recommend Ouran High School Host Club. Funny shoujo. The anime follows it well,but I still prefer the manga.

The funniest j-drama I've seen has to be Trick . Nakama Yukie and Abe Hiroshi played so well off eachother. The more outrageous the situations and overboard the performances, the more I laughed.

I was just talking about this subject with another fan. It seems, especially with K-dramas, as the series goes on, the flashback scenes (interspersed with deep meaningful looks off into nowhere) get longer and longer as all these series progress. They could probably cut at least 2 episodes off the l...

Okay, after watching ALOT more j-dramas my list has definitely changed.
My new top 3 are:

1 - nodame cantabile
2- byakuyakou
3 - trick 1

The only series of the first three I ended up wanting to go back to was Trick, so it made the top 3 again.
Just so many to pick from.

Okay I agree. Director Baik from Delightful Girl is pretty bad.
However, I am now watching Green Rose and I have to say Shin Hyun-Tae takes the prize as the most evil character in all the series I have seen so far.

Evil!!!!!
