Fav of spring 2009:
1) Mr. Brain - kimutaku power
2) Konkatsu - funny n hilarious
3) Atashinchi no Danshi - reverse harem
4) Godhand Teru - live action
5) Boss - time filler

I wasn't too impressed by last season's lineup. The only one that struck gold for me was Mr. Brain, and Konkatsu a little less. The rest meh...

I watched a lot of dramas last season, MR Brain, Konkatsu!, The Quiz Show, Smile, Atashinchi no Danshi, Shiroi Haru and Aishiteru (and perhaps more that I can't remember)

But what I love most is "Aishiteru". Perhaps this is the best drama that I have seen in a while. If you haven' watched it, you should... lol. It brings serious topic about murder case where a little boy killed another boy but the whole story is beyond that topic. Love the child actor here <3

I also finished "Smile", another serious drama. This drama is second place for me in the last season. The casts' acting are absolutely amazing and they brought heavy issues in Japan + took some real cases in Japan to be a part of the storyline. Where else you will get a totally evil Oguri Shun and totally weak character of Matsumoto Jun ^^

Smile and Majo Saiban were my fave dramas last season.
I still need to finish Shiroi Haru.

Instead I was disappointed to the max by MR BRAIN, BOSS, Konkatsu! and The Quiz Show II.

I think Smile and AtaDan were the best. Konkatsu was ma ma. a little bit slow but somehow still sweet. BOSS was also so so, the actors did a good job but the stories were kinda lame. Only enjoyed some Eps. The final was worth sitting through the rest ;)
Was also disappointed by Mr. Brain and the Quiz show.

Happy to see Boku no Imoto Subs released for the first ep. This was my most anticipated drama for the previous season.

They are all subbed. Most popular drama's are subbed during the season, so you can see them a week or two after they air.

Atashinchi no Danshi (Best comedy Drama after a long, long time) and Aishiteru (outstanding Drama about a startling crime and inner conflicts) were clearly the Best. :thumright:

1. Mr. Brain - It's got everything. Crime, suspense, drama, trivia and a whole lot of comedy. The list of guest stars alone is a Who's Who of the jdrama industry.
2. Atashinchi no Danshi - Horikita Maki just thrives really well in a male-dominated ensemble cast. If you're looking for ridiculous fun this is it.

Well now i know who the contestants are i can make a poll to see which one was the best drama of the previous season.
Also i watched 2 eps of mr brain. If this is the best one i'm going to cry.
1. Van halen as op :'( come on
2. That not believable rookie cop, who is there to act afraid and mostly i think look pretty (was he that leader from hanayori dango?)
3. It's like a bad mix of columbo and robo and sexy voice.
4. I will still watch it, to see if it improves and if he ever meets that girl who he met 4 years ago.

edit: so poll is up.

Last season I watched : Mr Brain, Konkatsu, Boss, God hand teru, Shiroi Haru, Aishiteru, Futatsu no spica, Atasinchi no Danshi. Comparing those drama, I think the best drama is Aishiteru. It so awesome, great story and perform from the cast

Hmmn, I love most of all last season dramas:
1. Aishiteru --> because I'm a fan of this kind of drama... LOVE LOVE this!!!! for me, it was a moving drama...
2. BOSS --> very interesting~~~~ Love the cast....
3. Atashinchi no Danshi --> refreshingly fun~~~ light but sweet drama...
Other dramas that I watched were The Quiz Show II, Smile, Mr. Brain, Konkatsu, and just about to watch Shiroi Haru~~~~ The Quiz Show II has interesting story but kind of just ok for me (I watched because Sho LOL), Smile has beautiful message and kind of touching story, but kind of dragging in the middle, Konkatsu was nice but I can't feel Nakai-Ueto Aya chemistry~~~ Mr. Brain was interesting... I love Kimutaku as always, Hiro is nice with goofy role, but the story was just to short, some things wasn't clear up yet...

1. Van Halen? Well I think it's supposed to have a CSI feel. Though I admit they could've chosen a better song.

2. sigh. Do you really watch dramas? No that rookie cop is actually a very experienced actor, Mizushima Hiro, who acted in Mei-chan no Shitsuji and Hana kimi. The leader from Hana Yori Dango is Matsumoto Jun. For me, they look quite different. Also, the leader of Hana Yori Dango has a new drama, it's Smile. And the leader of Hana Yori Dango is Tsukasa Domyouji.
But I think that the rookie cop has a sort of irritating personality (if he doesn't get better that is).

3. I don't understand that but OK. In my opinion, there's a nice balance of things.

4. Good luck with that. It's actually really interesting.

For me, this drama is better than other dramas that I've watched.

MR. BRAIN is much like a spin-off from Galileo. So if detective/mystery genres are not your cup of tea, you could specify before hand to avoid disappointment. :fear:

I skipped parts of it, but Aya and Yumiko looked ridiculously good in Konkatsu.

Best plot and story line goes to Aishiteru.
Prettiest cast goes to Boss.
Greatest cast chemistry goes to Atashinchi no Danshi.
Best acting goes to Shiroi Haru.
Best single-episode performance goes to Mr Brain (epi 5 & 6, aka Nakama Yukie).

Btw, where is Boko no Imouto? I would vote that as "Most touching finale."
Where is Majo Saiban? I would vote that as "Most interesting twist".

I thought Shiroi Haru was the best followed by Mr. Brain.

Boss was definitely my favorite of the summer season. I can't say the best since I only watched that and Atashinchi no Danshi. I am really into the crime stuff so it's reasonable how I saw Boss as the best. I especially love the cast line-up - they were done very well. Everyone was funny in their own way. Well, I thought some of the episodes could have done better but oh well. AnD was too cheesy and Maki's acting was kind of poorly done, I mean no offense to this drama - but it was funny especially Yamamoto and Koji's parts. I wish I could of watched more dramas but I don't have that kind of time to watch so many.

Boss was a good drama. Interesting characters and acting.
Aishiteru too. I enjoyed Boss a bit more, because I felt that sometimes, in Aishiteru, the plot dragged a bit.

Atashinchi no danshi and Mr Brain were ok but not memorable..

The rest.. meh..

wow this is hard...i have to say, the summer season was the BEST drama season in my opinion. So many good dramas...my fav was Shiroi Haru and Smile but Aishiteru, atashinchi no danshi, and MR. BRAIN were also very good. It was a hard choice but i ended up voting for shiroi haru.

Shiroi Haru - Very nice plot, kinda sad but a heart-warming drama
Smile - Another drama with a great story and characters. Also makes u feel sorry for some characters. Very sad
Aishiteru - very realistic and emotional
Atashinchi no Danshi - pretty interesting characters and settings, also quite funny

No one should miss out on these, seriously.
