Katase Nana [片瀬那奈] Isn't it obvious, Nana Katase is the best and my favorite J-idol!!!!
She is multi-talented, her music, modeling, and acting, i love it all, and she is beautiful!
I first discovered her in Pretty Girls. I look forward to seeing her other j-dramas.
Kimura Yoshino [木村佳乃] I haven't seen much of this actress, but only recently noticed her in Yako no Kaidan. A very talented and gorgeous woman. I think she did a great job in acting in that drama and has starred in many other films and dramas in her career.
Ueto Aya [上戸彩] She was awesome in Azumi!!
Aya is so so cute, that smile of hers is something special.
Yonekura Ryoko [米倉涼子] according to bmwracer, Ryoko is beautiful, i fully agree. Saw her in Seikei Bijin, she is fantastic!!

2nd Hausu [２ｎｄ ハウス] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) for what is is about and worth, this one is hilarious, despite only being sub'd in english only for the first ep, and the rest raw(w/out subs). Very hard to watch and understand without the rest being sub'd, but i could understand some of the actions and there were a lot of hentai/echii type stuff going on as this is all about that. So funny, and Sayaka Isoyama makes her debut as an actress, otherwise known as a gravure idol, she is very cute, sexy.
tons of laughs, but not as much as Densha Otoko.
Ace wo Nerae! [エースをねらえ!] (Watched) i watched a few eps of it. I like it. Still waiting for the other episodes to become available and subtitled in english.
Boku dake no Madonna [僕だけのマドンナ] (Watched) i just started this series, and since it is only subbed in english for the first three ep's, i probably won't finish it until it is done subbing.
Densha Otoko [電車男] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) This one was so hilarious, super funny. Great comedy/drama series. Misaki Itou was beautiful, so was Miho Shirashi and Eriko Satou. The main character otaku, that guy was so funny.
Dragon Zakura [ドラゴン桜] (Watched) I finished up to episode 5, hardsubbed. Still waiting for the rest to be subbed off d-addicts.
so far, i really enjoy this series, Abe and Hasekyo were fantastic. And Manami Nagasawa is so cute.
Egao no Hosoku [笑顔の法則] (Watched) same as Boku dake no Madonna, only subbed for the first few ep's, just started on this one.
Friends [フレンズ] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Short series that i saw when it came out, i would like to see it again, i don't have it. Kyoko-chan is cute as ever, and one of the few dramas that is in both japanese and korean as it takes place in both cities.
Gachi Baka ! [ガチバカ !] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) My thoughts on this one were, another school j-drama. The acting by Tomoka Kurokawa was great, and she played a good part in it. The other girl Ai Takabe also did a good acting job, as well as a few other students and the lead male, Takahashi Katsunori. An ok j-drama. The ending was not as predictable as i thought, but could tie in to a sequel, but might not be as good as this one if they do a sequel.
Ganbatte Ikimasshoi [がんばっていきまっしょい] Rating: 7/10 (Watched) I finished this one finally. I liked it. The main character, anne suzuki, she did a fine job acting, and the girls rowing team showed perserverance and determination, set by their team captain.
Gokusen [ごくせん] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) great series, Yukie Nakama plays the lead character and this series grew on me, and i liked it more, and i really enjoyed the characters and theme song, it gives you that feel good feeling.
Good Luck !! [グッドラック！！] Rating: 9/10 a lot of good acting, some Rina action, and just a good drama overall. I enjoyed it.
GTO [麻辣教師] Rating: 10/10 What can i say?! The Best. Everything about it, i enjoyed. really makes me want to teach and be a source of inspiration for others.
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子] Rating: 9/10 (Watched) Great drama, about a girl and four guys in HS. Based off a manga, that i have not read but only heard about. I like this one, it had good music and the acting of Mao Inoue and Jun Matsumoto were excellent.
Hikon Kazoku [非婚家族] Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched) saw this one, Ryoko plays a serious role, the acting is good, the storyline is complexed, and sad. Nice drama.
Hotman [ホットマン] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) slow drama. Good acting. The guy from GTO is the lead in this one too. Akiko was hot. Yui was cute. The storyline was ok, i felt this drama moved way to slow. I thought the character that was created for Manami Konishi could have been better, but i felt she acted very good. At times, i felt uninterested in the drama, although there were some dramatic moments. I finished it out and overall i thought it was ok.
Ichi Ritoru no Namida [１リットルの涙] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) I was taken away emotionally by this sad story, and true story. Erika Sawajiri played the lead role very very well, and i enjoyed this sad drama from beginning to end. The music was good as well.
Ima Ai ni Yukimasu [いま会いにゆきます] (Watched) This series, i am currently watching. Only subbed in eng. up to ep6, still waiting for the rest to finish subbing. Slow but simple and nice drama.
Jukunen Rikon [熟年離婚] Rating: 5/10 only watched part of a few ep's, and not subb'd so hard to understand. Serious drama, slow moving, about family and divorce. Nana Katase is in it, that is why i became interested in it, honestly.
Kou Kou Kyoushi 2003 [高校教師 2003] Rating: 6/10 (Watched) kind of dark and depressing, the acting wasn't bad, and the parallel story line was interesting. Overall it was ok, and enough to keep my entertained the entire series, but not great.
Nobuta wo Produce [野ブタ。をプロデュース] Rating: 9/10 (Watched) I very fun and interesting HS drama, and it kept me entertained from the start. The drama shows the relationships of three friends in High School.
Pretty Girls [プリティガール] Rating: 8/10 (Bought & Watched) I've seen this one twice, it was funny, had simple and meaningful themes. I enjoyed watching this one. I discovered Nana Katase in this drama.
Remote [リモート] Rating: 7/10 (Bought & Watched) Kyoko is in it, isn't that enough!, only chinese subtitles since it is vcd i got from a chinese store, clueless with majority of the drama.
Seikei Bijin [整形美人。] Rating: 10/10 (Bought & Watched) i love the intro, Ryoko is hot. I like the drama and it has english subtitles!!!
Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu [世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ] Rating: 10/10 (Watched) This was one of those dramas that really hits you, and I was really emotionally moved by this one. The acting was superb by both main characters and although the story was very deep and extremely sad, I thought it was very good.
Slow Dance [スローダンス] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) A nice romance drama of 4 single people, that eventually form 2 couples. A slow romance drama, but a fun and great entertaining series between the characters and their professions/lives in Japan.
Tokyo Friends [東京フレンズ] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Ai Otsuka, Mao Kobayashi, Rio Matsumoto, a story of friendship and life in Tokyo, i enjoyed this one, and the music that Ai sings, is very good. Only 5 episodes long, but still a good series.
