I watched the first episode of this drama but I'm unsure if I should continue. I guess the constant self-pitying of the main character kind of threw me off. Does the story get more interesting later on? I didn't like the first ep as much, but ep 2-ep4 were the best for me. Ep 5 was really good, exc...

Soredemo Ikite Yuku is sooo underrated by it's rating! Wish it can be like Mother in 2010, taken the season by storm, whilst it was never expected to do so. Both dramas have the same writer and solid performance. Maybe even better because SIY tells the story by its body language too. I actually agr...

About Hiroki I didn't think he was serious about killing Fumiya *though IF they meet, there's no telling what a victim's brother might do* but at least, at that moment, I was thoroughly convinced - through the casual tone of Hiroki - that he was just trying to stir things up so that Futaba's dad com...

I love Eita and Mitsushima Hikari's acting too. :-) I've been well too familiar with Eita's works, but he always amazes me in a subtle way. Hikari's acting is also very expressive, yet she doesn't overact at all, though her character is full of tragedies. The one thing I absolutely love about the dr...

Wow was Tiger & Dragon really underrated? I only found out about it through Unubore Deka so I wouldn't know if it was popular during the time it came out in 2005. The rating wasn't exceptionally high, and I only found out about it because I was looking through the list of drama that won the Televis...

My list of 5 underrated dramas (among international communities, mostly, because I wouldn't know how popular they were at the time of airing in Japan :lol ) 1. Ai kurushii - it's not an excellent drama per se, but at least it's a watchable family drama that has some touching moments. I put it as #1 ...

That's awesome :wub: I can't wait for ep 8 either :cry:

I like how nothing has changed (in that her acting hasn't improved in just one episode), but rating is something critics can use so that they have something to write about. Oh well, everyone's got to make a living, right? :roll

Haha I also was very upset at the article above, considering how they're not judging her acting as a 10 year old character, they just want her to behave like the typical princess at that time. I understand no matter how "lively" a girl might be, she had to obey certain rules during that period, but ...

@toranosuke: It depends on how you see it. For me, it's hard to imagine how a young actress (anywhere from 7-15 years old) can portray Gou, an extraordinary girl, for one episode, let alone 10 eps. You just have to keep in mind the character's real age as you watch and forget the fact that Juri is, ...

Before watching this, I heard various opinions regarding Aya's acting, but she totally convinced me ...

Depends on what you call "popularity". Is it winning Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix? Is it getting high TV rating? Depending on your definition of "popularity", the answer will change. For me, TV rating is reliable, more so than online polls and Nikkan Sports, where you can get many fangirls to vote...

Actresses - Ueno Juri: the only actress/actor that has convinced me in every single role she's played in. She almost never repeats herself, and even when her role is boring or the plot is weak (like a certain drama that's playing right now, ahem) it's still interesting to see how she manages to shi...

I would probably say Innocent Love is the worst in terms of quality that I've seen (but again, I haven't seen that many, around 20, mostly newer ones (from 2004 onwards). I managed to finish it though, and didn't necessarily dislike it, I just thought it was bad :unsure: . In terms of acting, defini...

@Trygelan: for the serious one, I recommend Byakuyakou . Though not the first one on my favorite list (it's the third one :mrgreen: ), in my opinion it was the most beautifully and skillfully done jdrama I've ever seen. If you like the casting from Byakuyakou, then you should watch Sekai no chuushin...

I don't see how you can top this drama in this genre. In comparison I would only give One Million Stars a 7 I've heard varying opinions on this. Some say 1 Million Stars Falling is a classic, a must-see (though I realize people tend to claim something is "classic" just because it's good - not neces...
