    I watched 1 ep of Iru Onna, looks good but it's like doctor X for flats imo. still gonna watch since everybody seem to like it. I reallt liked ON Ijou Hanzai Sousakan Toudo Inako. It was special and interesting.v It could have been a 10/10 if just 1 or 2 eps would have been a bit stronger but definitely thought about Haru for best actress

    I really love her drama and movies. Ever since Buzzer Beat in 2009 and Paradise Kiss in 2011, inspired me to watch her shows. Keiko Kitawaga!!! And i wish that Tomohisa Yamashita got it too!!

    Ie Uru Onna was very good. The characters were very well thought out and the storyline was good. Soshite I just completed and was not very impressed. Im looking forward to more of these lists because MDL has a rudimentary statistic system built in and it is hit and miss when looking for good dramas. I really pick them up by word of mouth.

    I haven't watch Ie Uru Onna yet but I'm glad that my favorite Japanese actress Keito Kitagawa won the best leading actress prize. I'll definitively watch it!

    ON was FANTASTIC! I'm glad it made the list! Still have to watch Toto Nee Chan as subbing is slow. Soshite wasn't a strong drama to me so I'm kind of surprised at that pick! SOOOOO glad to see Shihei (Death Cash) on the list! What a FANTASTIC drama!!!! WOW! I've seen all but 2 of the dramas!!

    These results puzzle me a bit. I watched Soshite, Dare mo inakunatta and I thought that neither the drama itself nor Fujiwara in that drama were particularly good so I wonder how they ended up on all of the lists O.o

    I will have to add another Asadora to my list as Toto Neechan sounds really good. And Utada's song is truly beautiful too.
