Top 85 J-Dramas Of All Time: #21-30 — 8 Comments

  1. I just started watching Jin yesterday. Finished season 1 and half of season 2. Great show.
    Also a HUGE fan of Tiger and Dragon.
    I really enjoy this Japanese Drama Guide series. Keep it up!

    • I’ve found that DVDs are the most difficult to buy online, because a lot are actually bootleg. I once purchased Dragon Zakura on DVD and realized that it was obviously bootleg, because it look like it had been recorded from when it aired on TV. I would rather watch something online then support bootleggers.

      One website where you can watch for free that is legal is, though they don’t have much of a drama selection. is expensive, but it’s legal. Also, DVDs in Japan are actually more expensive than ours are in America, which is a reason why they are so expensive to import (fact from my husband). Most Japanese rent DVDs rather than buy. Netflix has a good collection of movies and anime (though, I haven’t seen any dramas), so you may want to look into that.

  2. Years AND years later

    I don’t know if the author is still listening but

    Just came across this excellent list yesterday while searching for “older series”, it’s a great resource. Of the series I know on here there is a real hint of quality so I commend the list to other stumbler upons. Also there are many that I don’t know of to explore, bliss. Thank you so much.

    The only quibble I’d have is the lack of the addition of Japanese titles as an “AKA blah blah” entry. (a) there is the occasional title error eg Thomas Edison’s Mother is really known as Edison’s Mother (AKA Edison no Haha), this makes finding extra detail difficult, (b) there are many where a search under the Japanese title opens new information.

    NOTE those who use No Script – hit temporarily disable setting otherwise you will receive “Comment is a spam” error.
