1Hana kimi

Funny with a very good cast, it deserves a much better publicity

I love hana kimi! The best Version <3 It really made me cry and laugh. Because hana kimi. Going school is really fun :)))

Funniest drama ever with a perfect cast. Goofiness galore!

2Hana Yori Dango

BEST drama ever! Must see! I absolutely love matsumoto jun! I like kimi wa petto too and gokusen but hanadan is the best! - aibaka

This is the first Asian Drama I ever watched, and I'm sure that has something to do with my vote, but HYD is the best drama I've ever seen and the only one that's ever come remotely close for me is Hana Kimi. Both of these titles are absolutely worth seeing.

The movie was amazing, I never get tired of watching it over and over again though

The best Japanese drama ever!

I watched all episode and re-run many times... That's how much I love this.

41 litre of tears

I'm sure most people agree that this was one of the most touching and heartbreaking dramas they had ever seen.

Good story.. More about life lesson

After the beginning of the drama, I cried with every episode. Very poignant. I have had cancer twice and and fully appreciate this drama personally.

Incredibly heartbreaking drama with fantastic acting, teaches us the importance of life

The acting is amazing for actors so young. While the main female lead didn't amaze me, Yamashita Tomohisa's acting stole many scenes. He had great on-screen chemistry with Horikita Maki. Despite everything, Kamenashi Kazuya was able to make his character likeable. It could have used a bit more character development near the end though, and perhaps have had a bit of a better ending..

6Bloody Monday

I first looked at this drama and was like hmmm looks boring not my type,days later I watched it and no joke it was the best decision of my life -it's well worth your time.
It's full of /plot twists/hot men/action/emotional scenes

7Liar game

I really loved this drama, It's so awesome. It has lots of twists.

The mystery and suspense is really good and keeps you on the edge. Terrific plot

Epic drama. Awesome plot. No episode will make you bored. Chemistry between characters were amaazing. Definitely a must watch drama! :D

The best drama EVER

14Ouran High School Host Club

Funny and love the actors! However, I feel like the adaptation was a little off...I don't know, it just didn't feel like a host club. But nevertheless I still loved it! It's just a thing you can't hate.

Very Funny! Yamamoto. Yusuke is so cute and funny! He's a great actor! !

Very interesting drama, feel good for her acting also a lot things to learn from this drama
