My Drama List (updated: 5/3/13)

This is my Drama List. I'll try and keep this up to date since there's always some new drama I'm watching. For some of these dramas I've done reviews so I link to those reviews so you can see my thoughts. My favorites are denoted with astirixs. The more astrixs the more I loved it. You can always leave a comment with a question about a particular drama or suggestions of a drama I should watch and review.

well, seeing this list I suddenly want to make a list of the dramas I've seen. But i'm not even sure do I remember all of them XD But yeah, I think I'll copy your idea and make alist for myself too ^^

I had to make a list because I was starting to forget what I had seen cause I've watched so much in less than a year.

You didn't like BOSS, Kimi wa Petto and Nodame?/sadface

I'm going with my basic bias and my standard rec here, so I'll have to say Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Long Love Letter...You could also try, Orange Days, Sapuri, and Voice.. I suggest you join asian_doramas, because there are more one single MU links when possible(I hate split downloads), and more choice usually. Faster RAWs and updates too. I fail at explaining plots, so I made up for that with linking you to the download/synopsis.

IWGP is really dark, with lots of violence, language, situation etc, but has a lot of humor despite its themes, and pretty unexpected twists in the plot that are worth the whole drama. The cast is pretty good too, with Nagase, Sato Ryuta, Kubozuka Yosuke (one of my not so subtle bias), chibi Yamapi, Maya Miki husband (lol). I CAN'T POSSIBLY EXPLAIN THIS, SO HAVE A PICSPAM.Every drma by Kudo Kankuro are higly recommended too, especially Tiger and Dragon and KCE.

Long Love Letter. another weeeeeeird drama. A school disappears from Tokio. A WHOLE SCHOOL. And reappears in a deserted and misterious place, with no water no food, and the people that happened to be in school at the time have to survive nd learn to stay united. Amazing cast, great story, ending that I literally love, time travel, psychos and even eco-themes!I STILL CAN'T POSSIBLY EXPLAIN NOE CONVEY HOW AWESOME THIS IS, SO HAVE A PICSPAM.

Orange Days. I put off watching this because I have angst issue, but I was worried for nothing. It's a great coming of age story.

Sapuri. I really liked it, but some found it boring. I think you could try, though I don't know how you feel about Kame. It's about an advertising company and we see it from the newbie perspective. Older\younger clice. It has Eita in suits being awesome as a plus.

Voice. If you don't mind the fact that 5 medical student are going around solving murders, this drama is adorable. Adorable otp5, Eita and Toma cuteness.

You could also try Hataraki Man? I thought that was a nice office/young driven lead drama.

As Koreans, the only one I liked was Dal Ja Spring because it had so many pop culture injokes, but it has some issue, mostly some character are definitely not open minded...Adorable otp and cast though. The summary is not really accurate, as usual

Figures I'd forget something. MEITANETI NO OKITE. It' adorable, basically makes fun of every cliche' of mystery novels. Goofy, childish, self absorbed "amazing" detective Matsuda Shota is backed up by uncooperative, petty Kashii Yuu, the new police officer stereotype (the lady of Yuukan club) and Kimura Yuichi, the good old faithful fail police officer that provides comic relief. The fun thing is that they know they are in a mystery novel, and they're not afraid to openly say so!

What?! I liked those dramas! They just weren't favorites. Though not gonna lie I'd probably rewatch episode of Nodame and BOSS if I need to pass an hour.

Adding all of these to my list of recommended and joining com.

I was just wondering, I liked those a lot and usually people either love or hate,so I was worried XD

Hope you'll find something to you taste to watch :D!
