Jdorama rambles...

I've been looking for a jdorama to pick up ever since I graduated because all I've been watching is Team Medical Dragon 3 (I'm a TMD fan!!) and Honey and Clover (the things I watch for Osamu Mukai...). So far, I'm down to two different titles, both with vaguely interesting premises and well-known actors and actresses.

Zenkai Girl

Synopsis: Devoted to becoming an international lawyer, Ayukawa Wakaba is full of ambition. Her hard work pays off when she lands a job at an international law firm, but to her disappointment, the first prestigious assignment that is given to her is to babysit the boss' 5 year old daughter, Hinata. Wakaba loathes kids and nursing, but unwillingly takes on the job as she is fixated on wealth and success. One day when she goes to a preschool to pick up Hinata, she meets a man named Yamada Sota. Sota is a man without higher education, wealth, or a future goal, someone that Wakaba absolutely cannot stand, the complete opposite of her ideals. Once again, contrary to her will, she ends up looking after Hinata and a few other kids along with Sota. Despite being exhausted from all the first-time experiences in child care, Wakaba begins to realize what is truly important to her. A heart-warming comedy about work, relationships and love. -- Fuji TV (Dramawiki)

Nishikido Ryo! Though I don't know if I've gotten over him playing a psycho in Last Friends. Still love Yamapi better!

Ouran High School Host Club

Synopsis: The story revolves around a high school girl named Fujioka Haruhi (Kawaguchi) at the prestigious Ouran Academy, who stumbles upon a group of male students who have formed their own club as hosts. Accidentally breaking an antique vase, Haruhi ends up owing the club a vast amount of money, and she ends up posing as a host in order to repay her debt. (Dramawiki)

I did eye this earlier after they started casting (or miscasting rather). Ratings looks terrible so I might not be checking it out though the anime and manga were absolutely delightful. :)

P.S. So many dramas and so little time. TWdrama Drunken to Love You seems awesome too and I have yet to finish Hotaru no Hikari 2. Though I'm still embracing my inner himono-onna! =D
