I've been out of the loop lately... I think the last drama I watched was Seigi no Mikata (one of the best, IMHO). What's been good lately?

I'll watch pretty much anything--crime, mystery, comedy, romance, action, etc.--except tragedies. Hate depressing stuff.

On the comedy lever how would you rate this from 1 to 10? I'm into really funny doramas like My boss my hero etc... I dunno... I'd say around a seven or an eight or so. It's better than a lot of stuff out there, but it's not quite at the same level of, say, "Trick"--but then again, what is? Yeah......

So... what's good this season? I've heard decent things about Bloody Monday, so I'm gonna give that a try. Anything else worth looking at? Also, I've been pretty busy this year. The only '08 shows I've seen are the hosptial ones from the summer, Maou, and Yasuko to Kenji. I miss any good stuff since...

...eh.... dunno about it being too formulaic, the setting is a bit too open-ended for that--besides, there's way too much potential ALL OVER the board to limit to a single formula. I'll be sad if it does, but hopefully if it does it'll relegate the formulaic parts to, like, the last seven minutes or...

^--they look really familiar to me, but I can't place 'em.

Just watched the ep1... I had high expectations, but damn, I wasn't expecting it to be ~that~ good. Nothing's that good. (Well, except Trick). Incredible. Absolute best drama of the year.

Zettai Kareshii is very funny (you may know the Manga?) ... But I can't garant for a 100% happy end Osen is very calm but with nice humour and a series that I greatly enjoy! Daisuki!! is one of my favourites! Despite the serious topic it's very light hearted and nice. Besides, hiraoka yuta is reaso...

I've been away for a while... could anyone tell me what the best shows were airing between last winter (jan. 08) and now? (I suppose that means "promising new shows" since we're so early into the summer). I'm mostly into comedy, romance and mystery shows, though I'll take anything that's GOOD so lon...

You see that big green bar at the top of the page? DramaWIki. It's amazingly useful for a wiki.
