Honorable mention...
Nodame Cantabile

Also, I feel like Hanazakari no Kimitachi e is probably going to have the number 2 slot when it finishes. I am highly enjoying it.

For now, it's:

1) Hana Kimi (I know it's not done yet, but it's hilarious! love it! I can safely say it's my favorite)
2) 1 Litre of Tears (so touching. I cried so much through out)
3) Nobuta Wo Produce (Akira Shock! :wub: )

I wish I could put Kurosagi, Hana Yori Dango, and Anego, but those would be my top three.

Woot! Here's mine:
1) Nodame Cantabile - It's just so cute. I love how they mix anime/manga animations into the drama.
2) Hana Yori Dango (2005) - I don't know, I was really, really torn between the two seasons [am anticipating on the third]. They're both really good in their own separate ways but then I decided to choose the one with a more original story plot. The second one takes a lot of the same type of scenes from the first season and some of the later episodes replays the same scene situations as the previous episodes of Season 2 so...yups.
3) My Boss, My Hero - This is pretty cute. I love how it's so original but not in at the same time. A stupid yakuza kid trying to become the boss makes for a great comedy.

My forever No.1 Jdrama: TOKYO LOVE STORY. Yes, it's a classic, but the best definitely! It's just truly, and simply amazing.

No.2 would be Kimi ga Oshietekureta Koto or Things You Taught Me / From the Heart... Maybe not many of you have heard of it, but it's a really good drama.

And No.3, I think I have more than 1 candidate here :mrgreen: Gokusen, HanaKimi, Nobuta wo Produce & Proposal Daisakusen

1. Nodame Cantabile - hands down. I've watched a lot of jdramas, but i rarely rewatch. so when I say i've watched this drama 5 times end on end is saying a LOT. ^^b

(im not sure if SPs can be counted, but)
2. kanojo to tadashii asobikata - AMAZING STORY. beautiful in its simplicity. you dont have to cry rivers to admit its good. ^^b or maybe that's just me

3. papa to musume no nanokakan

1. Hana Yori Dango - The plot was there, the acting was there, the chemistry was there, what else do you need?

2. Dragon Zakura - I think this was one of my favorite school dramas. Hehe. And I think I actually learned something. It helped me study a bit.

3. Stand Up!! - It's Japanese Pie! With Nino, Shun, Yamapi, and Hiroki in it!

Haven't seen 1 litre of tears yet but how can Nobuta wo Produce be so high? That's the absolute worst serie (japanese, american, english, swedish whatsover) I've ever seen.

Yeah I know but the story seemed like a typical american high school movie and the acting was the worst thing I've EVER seen.

Plus that the maincharacter was a metrosexual brat who couldn't act or get me intrested in the storyline at all.

Everyone stands for their point of view, you shouldn't ask such stupid question..

Plus nobody cares about your 'worst' drama, since this is the "BEST Dramas" Topic.

Well, I understand how you feel about Nobuta. It took me awhile to get into the story. I watched it cuz I was curious about why people were crazy about Yamapi. First episode was weird...I watched and stopped it 2-3 times before I just decided to skim through the first few episodes. It actually got a bit interesting I suppose. I learned some Japanese slang and what Japanese high school found hip. I wouldn't call it worst drama, but it wasn't so great. I liked the friendship part the most I guess, but no new insight.

I never understood the yamapi craze and I guess I never will because I refuse to watch another Yamapi drama after many different recommendations all of which I was not impressed after watching.
