    I think that J-drama's are quite interesting and good. I have never watched one until this past summer. I watch Taiyou No Uta [Song to the Sun] it is so good and addiciting. Also, I watched Be With You J-drama also, very good although so sad =[ I want to try to watch more J-dramas but I don't know any good ones. Please recommend some to me, Thanks!

    Pride would be the #1 J-drama for me soo far. it's a great story line, and the 2 main characters have soo much chemistry. It's is Highly Recommanded for everyone..

    From the top of my head, the one Jdorama that sticks out the most is Love Shuffle. It's funny, witty and suspenseful. And if you don't mind the lack of eye candy, you should check out The Quiz Show.

    For Jdoramas, I usually go for the mystery/psychological genre.

    Have you watched Takuya Kimura's "Mr. Brain" ?

    I've only seen the first two episodes so far and wasn't sure if I should continue. Takuya's character was a bit quirky (which I like) but the plot couldn't hold me in. Maybe I'll go back and check it out again when the subbing is finished for all eps.

    Recently I finished watching Densha Otoko and I love it. I cried. I laughed. It's a very touching drama--though it deviated from the manga just a bit.

    just the opposite of me...i've been really into lakorns these days, and paused my other dramas (korean, japanese and taiwanese especially) ..ok not exactly pause them, but just watch less of them...until......someone from this forum brought to my attention that there is a 'bloody monday 2'
    since miura is in there, i'm definitely gonna watch it. XD

    and yes, planning to watch samurai high school too! lol...

    PS.. the 3 characters from ryusei no kizuna do look like siblings! agree! :p
