I've recently been getting back into Jdramas, what are some good ones from recent years? I want adult dramas, no teens, high school, children, etc. Also, no depressing ones about illness or dark/horror dramas. Female centered would be great. This is part of what I loved about Doctor X, yet it seems to be rare in Asian dramas sadly.

Offbeat/quirky: Suteki na Sen Taxi, Quartet, Mahoro Ekimae Bangaichi, Fuben na Benriya

Rom-com: Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi

Food: Tenno no Ryoriban, Shinya Shokudo series

Fantasy: Seirei no Moribito

Cats: Neko Zamurai

There have been quite a few excellent crime procedurals such as Cold Case, BORDER and Kageri Yuku Natsu, but they are all pretty dark.

I gave Quartet a try and am loving it. It's everything I missed about Jdramas.

So great to see Matsu Takako again! Long Vacation, Love Generation, Itsumo Futari De... all absolute classics.

So glad you're enjoying Quartet! Matsu Takako was excellent there.
