My End of the Year Japanese Drama Picks for 2015 (Part Une)

My Top 10 Japanese Drama Picks for 2015

My Top 10 Japanese Drama Picks for 2015

Unlike the 18 Korean dramas that I watch (plus 12 web dramas), the total Japanese dramas that I completed this year was 37! 37! More and more dramas are being made available from sites like Viki and DramaFever than ever before.
