Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi [‹ó‚©‚ç~‚éˆê‰­‚̐¯]
this is a wonderful drama. Kimura is so good at playing the bad guy. I wish he would do more dramas like this! A great cast with great scripts!
Star no Koi [ƒXƒ^ƒA‚Ì—ö]
the most wonderful drama ever!
Summer snow
This is the greatest drama I've ever seen. The first nine parts will make you laugh, the last two will make you cry! An all time classic!

Abe Hiroshi [ˆ¢•”Š°]
Dohmoto Koichi [“°–{Œõˆê]
one of the most underrated actors out there. He is so good that he makes what he does look natural.
Dohmoto Tsuyoshi [“°–{„]
An extremly good actor who is 'real' in all of his roles. One of my very favorites!
Katori Shingo [ŽæTŒá]
A really good actor. Gives his all everytime he takes on a new project!
Kimura Takuya [–Ø‘º‘ñÆ]
Kimura's acting talent really shines in his non-romantic roles. I just love Million Stars and Sleeping Forest. He is so good at playing characters that aren't all good. Also, he is great on SMAPXSMAP. His sketches and his cooking are always wonderful!
Kusanagi Tsuyoshi [‘úg„]
A highly underated actor. one of the best around!
Matsuoka Masahiro [¼‰ª¹G]
Great actor who can do both funny and dramatic.

Kimura's good acting does not save this klunker. If he was the lead, perhaps, but because he's very low in the cast, a lot of bad acting from the rest of the cast and draging script shows. It would have gotten a 0 except for Kimura's acting.

This series is based on the same source as the series the Tribe, except this one is better. the adults dying, and the children left alone to take care of themselves.

Psycho Doctor [ƒTƒCƒRƒhƒNƒ^[]
Psychometrer eiji 1
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
Lets see. What does this drama have? Teenager named Eiji who has extra powers. He is a touch telepath. Most of the time he is dragged kicking and screaming to help out the police. He doesn't always like to use his powers. Because he thinks it's better not to know. But his flashes, are the thing that usually solves the case. Tanabe plays a man who used to be a friend of Eiji's police contact, but who is really criminally insane. Inahara plays Eiji's not too bright sidekick. kohara also plays the more 'geeky' sidekick. Both are good in the roles, but while Kohara is really the age of his charactor. Mahahiro and Inahara where three years older then the character they played. They are also much taller then Kohara. This in turn makes Kohara look much younger then them. That is the only drawback to this wonderful series. If you like X-files, you're going to love this series!
Psychometrer eiji 2
Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
To say this is a good drama is an understatement. This takes place two years later. Eiji is much more in control of his powers. His two friends have also matured, one becoming a gang leader, turning the gang into a Guardian Angels type street patrol. I only wish that they had made more of this great program. It really needs another season.

Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched)
I love this show! The principal's daughter was so very funny. She was in love with Kusanagi's charactor. She always came up with something new and unexpected in her quest to get her 'dream teacher'. There was also another charactor who showed up in each episode each time with a new job! I also liked the episodes, the one with all the female students in love with the teacher is a classic. Another one with a grandfather who used to be Dracula in movies was one of my favorites! Need I say anything about Kusanagi? He was really good in this! The teacher acted as if he really cared for his students. Yes, he was stubborn, but that made him a better teacher!

I believe this is the best ever Drama Kimura has ever done. Instead of a good guy role he usually plays, this role is more dark. He plays a killer who seduces woman into killing for him. That is until he meets the woman of his dreams, whose scar on her arm fits his scar like a puzzle piece. Then he falls in love and tries to change. Unfortantly the woman's secret leads down the path of unhappyness. If you have to watch one drama, watch this one!

Groundbreaking [Rating: 10/10]
A classic, groundbreaking drama. I highly recomend it for its sensitivity in dealing with Homosexuality. Kokubun Taichi and Yamaguchi were great in this. Also, look for Sakamoto Masayuki who played a very intresting role. If you can find it, watch it. It's great.
Houkago [‰º‰ÛŒã]
Funny, well acted drama [Rating: 10/10]
Oh boy, a freaky Friday type story. That is what I thought when I heard of this. But then I got the set. It is about Azusa a gifted, popular girl in the highest class at school. Then there is Kouhei, who is in the lowest class. He smokes, skips school ect. The series is very funny, I loved the way Arisa acted when her character realized she was in a girls body. Kouhei (the boy in a girls body) went very quickly to the underware drawer. Azusa (the girl in a boys body) caught him, and hit the roof! I felt sorry for Azusa when her parents had her thrown in jail, because they didn't know who she really was! Also, it was very very funny when Azusa had to go to the rest room, and Kouhei had to drag her in there. Because Azusa being the good girl she was didn't want to touch 'that'. The two become friends because no one else believes their story. Azusa, being Azusa keeps studying even when she is in Kouhei's body, which makes her first be accused of cheating on a big test. Since there is no way the 'backwards' Kouhei could ever get such a good grade. But a teacher believes in Kouhei, so she is back in the advanced class. The only thing unbelieveable is that no one ever guesses that the two switched bodies. Kouhei's family did think there was something wrong, but they soon think it's because he's in love. Azusa's parents begin to wonder why their daughter is becoming rebellious, but they never notice anything else different. Then slowly Kouhei and Azusa become more then just friends. Kouhei changes from being around Azusa, yes he is still a bit of a punk, but he stops smoking, and begins to think of others. There is also a couple of very odd love triangles in this program, but that makes it even more fun to watch. Arisa is wonderful as a boy inside of a girl. Her comic talents really shined in this story. The way she acted made me really respect her acting. Issei should have won an award for this program. he was very, very convincing as the girl inside of a boy. I was very impressed by his acting. If you have a chance to watch this drama, do! It's short, but it's great. Just wish there had been a sequel!

Good kids show [Rating: 9/10]
This is a good saturday morning type show. It's made for preteens, but I found I enjoyed it. It's like a strange combination of the 20's Our Gang series and X-files. My preteen son adores this show. So I've seen it about three time in the past two months. There are two seasons in this show. The first is when the 'gang'' is in the final year of elementary school. Tsubasa plays a geek, even down to the glasses. Tackey of course is the main character with the intresting family and grandfather the world travel. He gave Tackey's character a computer program to help them solve cases, then promptly 'vanished." They also have a friend called Takashi, and the token girl is called Erika, and she has a little brother called Shoon. This first season had sixteen episodes. The second season is when the 'gang' is in the first year of Junior high. Shoon isn't in this one as much, as he still is going to another school. They are joined in their case hunting by tom boy Akira. Tsubasa's character, called Kenta isn't as geeky in this series, passing his character change as his getting contacts. The second season had fourteen episodes and a special. I really enjoyed this series. It's worth hunting down. The second season has a bigger budget with better sfx, but it's really best to see both seasons. The title I was given for this show was the Kaiki club. Tackey and Tsubasa are both very good in this. It's quite intresting to see a show were Tsubasa is smaller then Tackey. Highly recomended show.
Sono toki haatowa nusumareta [‚»‚ÌŽž,ƒn-ƒg‚ÍŸX‚܂ꂽ]
typical teen drama [Rating: 8/10]
This drama is for the teen set. It breeches a subject not usually covered. It's a love triangle between two girls and a guy. The subject of bisexuality is treated with sensitivity. The main character can't make up her mind about anything. She was a typical teen in her first big crush. The big plus is seeing an early Kimura. He's the high school star basketball player. He's also in an all male drama troup. They were going to preform Sleeping beauty. Watch for the scene where he gets into a fist fight during a dress rehearsal. He's dressed as the queen, and he fights with Sleeping beauty. All, in all I do recomend this drama, though it isn't for the most mature of audiences.
Star no Koi [ƒXƒ^ƒA‚Ì—ö]
The best ever dorama [Rating: 10/10]
This is my all time favorite Drama. I have watched it three times, and it's made me happy each time. Tsuyoshi Kusanagi is really great in this dorama. I really liked his charactor and the unusual people he worked with. His preformance is 'straight on." Also, like the way that when the story got sad, the billboard with the star had a wallscrawl that said "agony" on it. Which mirrored what the male charactor was going through. The Dorama plays like an Rock Hudson/Doris Day romantic comedy. It even has that 'type' of incidental music. It even has a happy ending! A bonus to this is the guest in the last episode, Shingo Katori. He plays a reporter in the future who is going to write a book over the star's story. This Dorama has it all. My highest recomendations!
Yomigaeru kinro [‘h‚é‹à˜T]
A underrated series! Lots of action! [Rating: 10/10]
This series is like a Beat Takashi/John Woo movie. No romance, but heavy on the plot. I havenft seen a Dorama from Japan use so many guns. Seems like everyone in the series has at least four. Katori Shingo gives an excellent performance in this. Showing his true colors as an actor. He plays two entirely different roles, both with total conviction. The geek is a gadget whiz who comes up with wonderful devices, seemingly shrinking several inches to become the geek. The eherof on the other hand slowly looses those he cares for, both by betrayal and death. He begins a slow spiral into insanity. His revenge isnft simply going after the men who killed his brother; he plots the entire downfall of their corporation. Even though the ending is a bit bleak, itfs foreshadowed in the series. There was room for a sequel, and itfs too bad there wasnft one. I hope that someday, someone will reuse Katori Shingo as an action star.
