Hana Kimi (J-version) is the best (supprisingly that you don't have that in your list). I watched both Hana Yori Dango already. I got Gokushen 1 +2 , but the fighting is so fake and boring that I haven't seriously watch one episode sstraight. I was looking for 2 old J-drama show (probably about 8~10 years ago) , if you guys can help me with the title, I would greatly appreciate! One was about a young girl around 16 years old, hired (?) to become a fake bride (in my country, it was translated into something like "16-year-old bride"), another one is about a pretty much odd, carefree girl that's trying to reaach her love interest in a company (her name is something Marilyn, due to her father's liking of Marilyn Monroe).

The only ones that I could finish were Densha Otoko and Gokusen (1). 1L of Tears just got way too sad after ep 6. Another one not on your list was Kiken na Aneki, just because I'm a fan of Itou Misaki and thinking of going to med school.

Personally, I prefer the Korean stuff. Full House, Autumn Tale, and My Sassy Girl (movie) just blew me away.

I think this would fit better in the "General Chat" board...since dramas don't really have anything to do with anime.

Actually some of the dramas feautured are Live Actions ( Manga Adaptations) like GTO Gokusen Denhsa Otoko Hana Kimi Nodame Cantabile etc

I used the term Dramas as whole to include LiveActions/ Manhwa Adaptations ( Goong Full House ) and your usual J/K/C Soaps

Out of all the Asian dramas available, I only watch Japanese series, since I prefer to spend my time with something that will further my education.

Two of my favorites:

Densha Otoko was hilarious and touching, and deserves at least a try from any one with our subculture interests. It's gotten a tremendous amount of love from "normal folks", too, and perhaps for that reason it should be viewed as socially important--a lovingly distorted "looking glass" for society and the otaku within. The obligatory "crying scenes" in every episode get very old, but that aside it's very good.

Yama Onna, Kabe Onna should be tried by any one who liked the female lead in Densha Otoko and wants to see her in a role that requires more range should absolutely see her here. I find it hard to recommend to many people, because of western "touchy issues" making it hard to bring up a show where the title and superficial theme reference the disparity of breast size between the two female leads, but it's actually very tasteful and not at all sleazy. Not only does it provide the rarity of a genuinely strong lead female character that is neither a Yamato Nadeshiko nor lacking genuine feminine identity, but it's consistently funny and sweet. Interestingly--at least for any one with experience in theater--is that it's frequently blocked like a stage production despite being a multi-camera recording, which I find very interesting to watch.

Nice! I agree, Itou Misaki's role was terribly plain in Densha Otoko. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the info. Densha Otoko was my first foray into J-Drama, and while it got pretty overly melodramatic at times, I have to say it was quite an enjoyable show. I've been dying to try other shows but didn't know where to start, so this seems like a good place to start.

The only other J-Drama I've seen so far was the live action version of Boku Wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru. While the premise was very good, I thought the pacing was too slow for me to really recommend it.

IMO......GREAT. I think the TV series to be much, much better than the movie though: better acting, better actors. The main character is so easy to love and I think he relates to a lot of people out there who are connected one way or another to the 'otaku' lifestyle, be it extreme or just a mild interest. Another plus is that it is rumored to be based on a true story, thus giving hope to a lot of people! I highly recommend you try it.

My favorite K drama of all time.
The Immortal Lee Soon-Shin (The greatest admiral ever, yes I even say better then Nelson. Yi Soon Shin was once defeated 300 Japanese ships with only 13ships.)
Huh Jun
Yes, they are both historical drama, and only drama that I watch is historical one, never really liked other dramas.
Though I am recently watching this new drama called New Heart , it's really good and I haven't enjoyed drama in years.

Densha Otoko is a must see for any true blue anime fan . its takes into the world of anime the darker side . It pretty much tells you in detail about the life of an anime fan . The silver lining is a beautiful love story when an ordinary or below ordinary guy falls for a princess and eventually gets her : )

Trust me after watching Densha you will never use the term 'otaku' to describe yourself as an anime fan
