Hello people! I'm here in order to bring you 10 of the lowest rated Jdramas of 2012, which in some cases can be seen as the 'biggest disappointments' of 2012. Before I start, I only want to say that I was surprised! Some of the dramas I had put in my PTW list are of the lowest rated dramas in Japan, and I am very disappointed that some dramas are known to be terrible before I have even seen it..and then, there are some that I've previously seen that are even included below. So, if there are disappointed people, remember, WE are in the same boat! ;) [Obviously there were some dramas that may not have even reached a 1% rating, these 10 dramas below are dramas that had potential, but couldn't deliver..so to say]
And now, beginning with the LOWEST rated drama, we have:
Houkago wa Mystery Totomo ni (TV Rating: 1.5%)
- Haruna Kawaguchi > Ryo Kirigamine
- Mokomichi Hayami > Hiromi Ishizaki
- Alice Hiroses > Naoko Takabaya
- Noriko Iriyama > Chitose Karasuyama
When I looked at the plot, I was really into seeing this, but I dropped the idea as soon as I saw the votes. Just look at the ratings here on MDL...it's rated a 5.60 I was very surprised that it came out like this, because I really enjoyed the content of the synopsis. I am really sad...
Kazoku Hakkei (TV Ratings: 2.0%)
To be honest, I really haven't heard of this drama. I was really surprised that something like this even existed! Well, of course, I wouldn't know all the dramas that came out in 2012, but this drama seems very interesting--only half of it though. I think that the drama could be better if the main character were a high school student and NOT a housekeeper..but that's just my opinion.
Shiritsu Bakaleya Koko (TV Ratings: 2.8%)
- Shintaro Morimoto > Tatsuya Sakuragi
- Hokuto Matsumura > Tetsuya Asada
- Mina Oba > Atomiya Saya
- Takaki Yuya > Tatsuyami Shohei
This definitely was a surprise to me. I had seen this drama and even though I can't say that this is a master piece, I really liked the drama, and it was quite unexpected that it would have such a low rank. I'm really disappointed.
Taburakashi Daikou Joyuugyou Maki (TV Ratings: 3.3%)
- Mizuki Tanimura > Maki Todo
- Koji Yamamoto > Monzo Mizutori
- Yasunori Danta > Tokitada Matsudaira
- Yuri Shirahane > Mineko Fuji
This is another drama that I haven't heard of. I haven't seen it, but the plot is really attractive, and if I heard of this drama sooner maybe I would have seen it. And one more thing, doesn't this drama almost--sort of--sound like Skip Beat?
Teen Court (TV Ratings: 3.4%)
- Seto Koji > Saburo Takada
- Gouriki Ayame > Nyakouji Misato
- Murakawa Eri > Maho Okazaki
- Mori Ren > Hayato Isogai
I hear a lot about this drama, and I NEVER could have guessed that it would have this kind of rank! It's a total discrimination because I really thought that this would be one of the top dramas of 2012! But I will see this one no matter what. A stupid rank will not stop me from seeing this drama...or will it?
Family Song (TV Rating: 3.9%)
- Odagiri Joe > Masayoshi Hawakawa
- Santamaria Yusuke > Miki Kousuke
- Otsuka Nene > Mizushima Asako
- Kanjiya Shihori > Aota Yuki
I must admit, I hated this drama. It was a total failure and I will not see it ever again even f someone offered to pay me fr it. I don't even want to talk about this :/
Today is the Best Day (TV Ratings: 4.13%)
- Yuka > Takako Yamai
- Okada Yoshinori > Mysterious Man
- Hiraiwa Kami > Kawata Mayumi
- Shiraishi Miho > Maid
Seriously? Who the heck would come up with such an absurd idea? I definitely won't see this drama. I mean, a wedding planner who discovers secrets and plays some sort of detective? Please!
Tightrope Woman (TV Ratings: 5.2%)
- Ikewaki Chizuru > Tokura Yuri
- Takaoka Saki > Tokura Kyoko (step-mother)
- Kyo Nobuo > Furuya Hayato
- Honda Hirotaro > Asahi Takagi
By the plot, I don't think that this drama is something special and my opinion is very strict towards this one. I don't even have words to describe how I don't want to see a drama that relates problems of a rich family.
Omo ni Naitemasu (TV Ratings: 5.3%)
- Nakamaru Yuichi > Akamatsu Keisuke
- Nanao > Izumi Konno
- Adachi Yumi > Aoyama Yukiko
- Ryo Kato > Nobuchika Komomo
Honestly, I liked this drama. I have seen it and my personal opinion is that this one could end up to be one of my favorites. It's sad and at the same time, cheerful. It was really beautiful.
Mousou Sousa~A Stylish Life of Associate Professor Koichi Kuwagatan (TV Ratings: 5.45%)
- Sato Ryuta > Kuwagata Koichi
- Sakuraba Nanami > Shinno Hitomi
- Kurashina Kana > Kimura Toyo
- Taketomi Seika > Hayata Rinka
My opinion is a little...indeterminate, because I didn't see this drama yet and I can't give my opinion about it. I mean, both the title and the plot are LONG! Very long [See for yourself]. So, as my laziness speaks up, I won't say anything. My opinion is that the title and the synopsis and long..that's it :p
Once again, I remind you that if there are some disappointed people out there who are seeing some dramas that they really liked on this list, WE are in the same boat. Ironically, even though I made this list to warn people of some of the lowest rated Jdramas of 2012, I really like some of them myself. Even though I too am imfluenced to drop some of the drama I would like to see from my PTW list, I will tell you one thing:
And if you feel like this list is the total opposite of your opinion, feel free to make your own list of disappointing Jdramas :D
