PostPosted: Sat Dec 23, 2006 3:14 am    Post subject: [Survey] Your Best J-dramas: Ranked! (Update #17)   Post Rating: 0 Reply with quote

(* Need to change your ranking? Then check out the "Master List" on Page 26)

The purpose of this survey is:
#1. to attempt to quantify this forum's favorite jdramas.
#2. to recommend jdramas to you.
If you're new to jdrama, why not try one of the popular ones at the top that you can discuss with anybody? If you've seen all the popular ones, why not try one near the bottom that someone out there thought was equally awesome? Or something random in the middle? In any case, hope you find this list useful. :)

Joining the survey is easy!
1. Choose your Best 3 Japanese drama series EVER and rank them here as #1, #2 and #3.
2. Your #1 drama = 3 points, #2 = 2 points, and #3 = 1 point. Anything else you post will get zero, so try to keep it at three. Incomplete lists will not be scored.
3. I'll try to tally up the points every few weeks and update the list.

Restrictions:
* No Specials or Movies, please. Just drama series.
* Please only list dramas you have finished watching.
* Please rank dramas with more than one season separately. Thanks!

Guess I'll get the ball rolling with mine: #1. Joou no Kyoushitsu, #2. TRICK Season 1, #3. Odoru Daisousasen

Best jdramas ever (according to d-addicts forum) (updated till Cerviel (pg. 29))
* New entries in bold
* Point gainers since last update in italics. In ( brackets ) is their previous rank from the last update.
* Click on a title for more info (courtesy of the Drama Wiki)

*I don't mean to offend anyone, but like any surveys, dont you think that people will be prone to list dramas that they've watched most recently?

I don't think new doramas suck..... nodame is great, even though not that much of it's been subbed yet, it's one of the funniest doramas i've seen so far. And hana kimi looks pretty good so far too. Tatta hitosu no koi was good too. As for myself, i started to watch doramas befiore i knew of the existence of Johnny's...which certainly is crazy. Anyway, my top 3 are -

1) Strawberry on the shorcake
2) Nobuta Wo Produce
3) Ikebukuro west gate park

1. Long Vacation
2. Densha otoko
3. Lunch no joou

The problem with this survey for me is that there are still so many dramas I have yet to see, old and new.

The Hana Kimi airing now, which makes it the only version out, isn't a J-drama though. If it's considered a J-drama, that'd make Mars, Devil Beside You, and Meteor Garden J-dramas too. Let's consider Hana Kimi a T-drama. Smile

1. GTO
2. My Little Chef
3. Attack No. 1

And hana kimi looks pretty good so far too.

The Hana Kimi airing now, which makes it the only version out, isn't a J-drama though. If it's considered a J-drama, that'd make Mars, Devil Beside You, and Meteor Garden J-dramas too. Let's consider Hana Kimi a T-drama. Smile


Ah, i know, but since they said it's just new doramas in general that arn't as good (not specifying whether it's j, t, or k...) then hana kimi counts too. Big Smile

The requirement being Japanese dramas didn't have to be mentioned. You know you're posting in the "JDrama Discussions" forum, right? We didn't make separate Japanese/Korean/Chinese forums just for the hell of it; there's some logic to the separation of the three.

1. Tiger and Dragon (the writing is just brilliant!)
2. Love Generation
3. Hero

For #3, it's a toss up between a number of KimuTaku dramas, but Hero is probably one of the funnier ones.

New doramas suck... I think most people here only got into dorama recently (following Johnny's!!! Crazy )


I dont think new shows "suck", they ARE better. try get a copy of say Orange days, then get a copy of Hana Yori Dango. now compare them. hana yori dango is just made better. Not grainy and outta focus tv rips. I love wide screen stuff, i love high def stuff, i need my eye candy, I want my bling bling!!
Sure sure, orange days (im using this show for example) is one of the greatest show made but it just looked "aged".

so, when I pick my fav, i weigh how it looks, how its filmed, hows the story etc. so, if a show had great story (summer snow, long vacation, beautiful life) but just looked yuk, i cant rank it as my favorite of all time.

oo, and i have no clue who "johnny" is.

I was thinking the same thing...

howzitboy... How can the video quality be more important than the drama itself? Personally I'll watch anything (VHS-rip etc) if it's a good drama... Smile

My list:

1. Beautiful Life
2. Long Vacation
3. Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake

1. Tiger & Dragon (really life-altering, a different genre altogether!)
2. Shomuni (powerful under-rated women who cannot be messed with)
3. Hotman (adaptated from the manga filled with emotional family drama)

There are others as well like Hero (Takuya Kimura really shines here) and Dragon Zakura (Abe Hiroshi is da man!), Gokusen (so-so, but I prefer the manga any day) and Nobuta Wo Produce (funny as hell) and My Boss, My Hero (love this only because of Nagase Tomoya, see no. 1 pick), and of course, GTO (a true classic!).

But those top three are what really captures me the most.

I just finished another update and most of the stuff in the Top 10 are old. Heck, Long Vacation is from 1996! But yeah, every survey has flaws, the biggest one here is that few have seen all the dramas on the list. If they had, maybe Maho no Jouken would rank higher? ;)

Hm, Orange Days didn't look much different from HanaDan or any recent drama. I think most dramas filmed after Japan went widescreen in the early 2000s look about the same. Then again, if you're comparing fansubs, *I think* Orange Days was ripped from a DVD, and HanaDan was ripped from HDTV so that might explain it.

Still, check out Odoru Daisousasen . . it's 1997 but surprisingly looks better than a lot of the recent dramas I've seen. I don't think it's the encoding . . my guess is that after Japan went widescreen, it cost more to film a series so they just cut back a bit on the film. ;)

So I disagree, but eh, everyone's view of what's good is different so it's cool.

I feel the same way. I even watch crappy dramas all the way to the end juuuuust in case.

Just a few weeks ago, by request, I burned a copy of Ohsama no Resutoran for my old Japanese lit professor. The new DVD rips were just getting posted then so I told her that if she didn't mind waiting, I would have a better quality version. When explaining how "bad" the quality of the version I already had was, I told her it would be the same as watching a tape. This got her all excited since part of the reason she wanted to see the show again was nostalgia. The "aged" look of the show would only enhance this. I wound up watching the show over again and was glad I did. I realized that I'd just be wasting my effort and bandwidth by downloading the DVD rip.

What was really strange was that I followed it up with Double Kitchen and another drama that was a VHS rip before moving to Kekkon Dekinai Otoko. For the first few episodes, the show felt a little...I don't know... sterile. It's like it was missing a certain warmth that came with the old grainy and worn video so it took me a bit to readjust.

I get the same feeling with music. For weeks I would hear a particular Chinese pop song played on the radio or on the loudspeakers in various stores/restaurants. Once I figured out who it was and bought the CD or downloaded the song, it wasn't the same as hearing it in radio-quality. The moral of the story? Avoid public places! Eh? What I say?!

But we digress. What a nifty thread. So glad GTO is getting pretty good results.

still don't see how the video quality plays into the decision because that's a result of the source... if you mean cinematography, then that's an entirely different thing... ^_^;

ushiushi: thanks for putting this together. it's going to be a lot of work Fear, but i think the results will be helpful to new people since the Reccommendations thread has grown so much. Smile

you're right that all surveys have some bias, and this one will probably have a slant towards series from more recent years because they're easier to get, there are more of them, and because ppl usually form some sort of affinity to the first drama they see (and since there are relatively few "old-timers" here, this would naturally mean more recent shows). but as long as a new person's experience with a drama is a good one, i like to believe that they'll watch more... and with more experience, will come the ability and desire to discern and seek out the truly unique dramas, no matter the age.
is that too much to hope for? Laugh

anyhow, i can't vote on this just because i have way too many to narrow it down to just 3... for different genres, no problem, but overall? yikes... Fear

yeah i totally forgot that aspect. availability. most of the older series are impossible to get. and Japan dont come out with any dvd boxed sets with english subs like the Korean shows. i think the oldest show ive seen is probably 1996? cant find anything older raw and for a show to be subbed is non exsistant.

so, yeah most people willl only vote for newer shows cuz thats all u can get.

my friend was making copies of some really old shows for a Japanese woman he knows, but the quality is soooo bad they are nearly unwatchable.

and kewl GTO is making a run for top spot. awesome show along with long vacation.

I don't care if they look aged... SARS Orange Days was a really good rip, bootleg HK VHS looks aged Laugh You guys are too spoiled by HDTV rip Roll Eyes

I have seen HYD, and it was horrible. Most dorama based on manga are horrible IMO (Although Nodame feels like watching anime with all the special effects, so I'm enjoying it a lot) We must have REALLY different tastes...

I'm not saying ALL the new ones suck, there are still good doramas, but way fewer, and even then, it can't be compared with the older ones, especially with story and script IMO.
