A car accident killed a couple and caused their six children to become orphans. At that time, the eldest child, Tatsuya, was only 18 and had to attend a marathon training. Being unconfident of taking good care of his siblings, he separately relocated them to their relatives and adopters. However, after several years, Tatsuya gives up his atheletic career and decides to fetch back his brothers and sisters to live together. To his disappointment, everyone sees him as selfish and refuses to recognise him.

1. NIve family drama [Rating: 7/10]
Even though it is quite old, it's still good to watch if you like warm family dramas. Plot contains lots of elements of accepting and also inter family fighting. People with kyoudai will understand big part of this drama automatically.

In the end it will also surprise you a bit with its dramatic events, but still one can watch this without too much of a pain. I didn't like the main character Tatsuya, but otherwise acting was ok. Themes were also ok and the accepting of people as they are really hit into me. I found a few tears on my cheeks in the end, but this is by no means any tear festival.

Nice and warm family drama, nice to watch but not anything too amazing. 7/10.

2. Hitotsu Yane no Shita 1 -> What a Nice Story!! [Rating: 10/10]
This is one of my fave dorama ever, i like all the characters in the Kashiragi family coz each could represent most of people in the real world. The supporting characters made an important roles too. The interaction between characters just so naturally happened that made people really into this dorama. It showed not only the love between man and woman, but also the love as family and as friend.

3. One of the best dramas I've ever seen. [Rating: 10/10]
The title says it all. I was hoping they wouldn't make the "kyoudai" interactions and relationship seem very fake and cliched and they didn't. Very heartwarming and tear jerking. You'll laugh sometimes too. Every sibling performed great and would watch it multiple times. P.S. I think #2 is just as good. You root for Koyuki to be with Tatsuya (Anichan). Don't rent it, just go buy it.

In this inspiring tale of familial bond, Super Brother manages to reunite five siblings as diverse as society itself. The story moves at a good pace and stays on the light side with some very funny moments. Add a nice music score and a great cast, you've got something that will charm you to the bones.

This drama is one of the best I've seen. Everyone in it was excellent from beginning to end. Well worth the sequel too (as many drama sequels are not in my opinion)

The strength of under one roof perhaps mainly falls under the hands of its actor, and the script. It tells about a brother who wants
to live with his siblings after their parents died. The prob is, all of em are seperated to be taken care by someone, and one of em is adopted.I thought i was gonna see a happy ending for this family but the troubles
come tragically(the youngest is disabled, one got involved with gangsterism,one was raped) sheesh.. if i were the head of the family, i wd stumble but he(Eguchi Yousuke) keeps goin through. A good story to watch!
2. Comments by DragonSpirit164 [Rating: 9/10]
Now I see why this is acclaimed to be the granddaddy of all family dramas. A highly enjoyable show with many good storylines. Eguchi Yosuke plays the highly emotional big brother well, one moment he's laughing hysterically and the next he's crying his eyes out.. I loved the scene where he strangles the lady thinking that she kidnapped his younger brother...hilarity. This show has provided the inspiration for newer ones such as Hotman. Great acting by the cast, intriguing storyline. Highly recommended!!~

Another drama to weep buckets on. The difference from Heaven's Coins is this drama emphasizes on family's value. Eguchi is perfect as Tatsuya, always the big brother who takes care of everything when he's actually as confused as everyone. It's overall a heart-warming drama and not to forget that the two series got the highest rating among all 90s drama. Great cast and good performances. That why this series became a classic. An interesting story line based on family bond between brothers and sisters.

Well this is a must see dorama, it`s not exactly the best acted dorama but is one of the most popular doramas of all time in Japan as eguchi yosuke and fukuyama masaharu is brilliant and cool. and the best thing about this dorama is the innocent performance provided by Sakai Noriko who acts as Koyuki. She is amazingly cute. This is a hommely family dorama of 6 brothers and sisters who go through daily struggle to strengthen their family bonds. Really funny and really sad in moments!

This wuz also one of the boring dramaz on my list! It's realli laggy and dun realli have a plot at all! I know this story wuz all about a family and troubls they've go through . . . but if there wuzn't a second one to back it up, u'll think the ending sux and probably the drama dat u've wasted u're money on! If I were u, I wouldn't waste my time watchign this is just go to the second one! If u watch it, u'll eventually catch on . . . hope my opions helped!?

wow ~~ this show was shown on tv when i was very young ... i think when i was 9 or 10 yrs old ('96 or '97) ... haha ~~ i don't really remember the scenes now ... but i do remember the characters ... liked the big brother the most ... the way he nags and cares a lot for his siblings ~~ i remembered i've cried before for this drama ~~ it'll be weird if u're a jdorama fan , and u've not watched this show b4 .... kekez ..
7. Comments by EstherM [Rating: 7/10]
Story-wise this is an absolute 9 or 10. What a wonderful family drama about 6 siblings living together! Now why a 7, you wonder? It's Eguchi Yosuke's character. He unfortunately portrays the kind of man I hate most in real life: a childish crybaby, who thinks he's a real man, while being agressive and a tad too stupid. Zero respect from me even though he did good and meant good.
8. Comments by Akakage [Rating: 8/10]
Touching. What a great cast! Yosuke Eguchi, Fukuyama Masaharu and Noriko Sakai had delievered a superb performance. However I gave most of the credit to Yosuke..he is so great as the big Aniki in the family and raising his brother and sister all by himself. A very good drama with a great family value
9. Comments by pumpkin puff [Rating: 10/10]
How could you not want to watch this drama? The love between the brothers and sister is so touching, not to mention the plot is so unpredictable. The light humor from Tatsuya's foolish lectures is so entertaining. ANNDD... Sakai Noriko and Fukuyama Masaharu are in this series!
10. Comments by Wisteria [Rating: 7/10]
A good, solid storyline and great acting, you can empathise with the characters through their highs and lows. Eguchi Yosuke (Kashiwagi Tatsuya) is really good as the older brother who is trying to make the whole family situation work - and he does have his work cut out for him.
11. Comments by ume [Rating: 8/10]
Great family drama. Teaches us the kind of support we should always offer each other. Very nice and warming. And love Noriko Sakai, she is gorgeous. Also Fukuyama is quite cute in his younger days...though I am very against the oldest brother. But anyways, GREAT PLOT.
12. Comments by groink [Rating: 10/10]
This series is among my all-time favorites. It is a very warm, and inspirational series. All the characters are very good people. And, when bad things go wrong for each of them, you really feel for them. Sakai Noriko really made her mark in jdoramas with this series.
13. Comments by outlaws0025 [Rating: 8/10]
Very nice dorama. All in all it was a great story and great acting... although I think the fighting scenes between the brothers were a bit too much some times. Also, sometimes they made a pretty big scene out of very small problems.
Still very nice dorama, tho.
14. Comments by fahsum [Rating: 10/10]
My all-time fave jdorama! It was the first jdorama I watched! A very good family drama, although the ending seemed abrupt and incomplete. If you watch this, you gotta watch the sequel which totally finishes off the ending of this series.

After the parents of these 6 kids died in an accident, they were split off into differnt foster care homes. The eldest decideds to reunite then and thus begins the story of the relationship and the bonds between the family memebers.

I last watched this dorama like 6 years ago, everything is so feint to me, but I definately enjoyed it then. The first family style dorama I ever watched and as you can browse around this site, many follow suit.

this drama is definitely a top 5 material.. the characters and the story are done well. There are laughing scenes, sad scenes, relaxing ones.. it just makes it into a complete well-done drama.

I have watched the drama once, went on the read the book, and watch it again twice after that. Cries everytime when I watch this, even when reading the book. One of the best script written.

I watched it thousand times, cry for Koyuki, laugh for Kazuya, like Anchan (Tatsuya) and love Shini-chan (Masaya, Fukuyama Mashaharu).. think it was my first love :p

Ironic. Time and again, it's the Elder Brother who have the potential to tear the family apart. His communication skill is horrible. To keep it short, Engine fared better.
22. Comments by Lantizh [Rating: 8/10]
It's a good drama. Funny at times and tear-jearking too. Was a bit disappointed with the ending though. I just now found out there's a part 2 so I'll be looking for it.

Definitely one of the best I've seen so far.. It's a very sweet story about family - I love the whole with Tatsuya-Koyuki-Masaya!! I love Fukuyama-sama!! He rocks!!
