Watashi wo Hanasanaide is about a bunch of kids who are brainwashed into being organ donors. Each episode is bookended by scenes involving Ayase Haruka and Mizukawa Asami who have grown up to be carers and donors.

This must be the first Kora Kengo dorama where is not playing a serial killer but there's still plenty of episodes left to fix that.
Yu from Love Exposure is in it as the rich kid who becomes Arimura Kasumi's colleague. He is the character I care the least about and I kept expecting him to start taking upskirt pictures.

The story moves at a brisk pace and there is a kind of energy to it that makes it easy to watch.

WTF is Oguri Shun doing the Nobunaga Concerto movie and Ouroboros instead of the sequel Border?
WTF is Densha in so many shows. Is he becoming the new Kita Yoshio?
WTF does Risk no Kamisama have nothing to do with risk assessment/prevention?
WTF can't jdoramas do action scenes properly without insulting intelligence. I'm looking at you Siren/Angel Heart/Ouroboros.
WTF did anyone think that Death Note needed remaking?
WTF do season 3 of Doctors just to rehash the same thing?
WTF hasn't anyone uploaded Panic In?
The one show I want to watch in Shingari but the lack of Japanese subs makes its very difficult to follow all the bloody business terms.
BEST DORAMA SPECIAL
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
KURASHINA KANA - TENSHI NO KNIFE
Honourable mention to Kikuchi Rinko and Kaho in Yume o Ataeru.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
KOBAYASHI KAORU - GODAN
Shout out to Takito Kenichi for Zainin no Uso, the first time I've never seen him overact.
AIBU SAKI - GARASU NO ASHI
I normally don't think of Aibu Saki as a good actress (though I really like her in Angel Heart) but this was the role of her career and she absolutely owned the character.
Honourable mentions to Kimura Tae for Boku no Tsuma to Kekkon shite kudasai and Suzuki Kyoka for Dakara Koya.
FURUTA ARATA- YAMI NO BANSOSHA
Yami no Bansosha wouldn't have been as fun without him.
Honourable mention to Ito Hideaki for Zainin no Uso.
BEST JDORAMAS OF 2015
OKASHI NO IE
KAGERI YUKU NATSU
TENSHI NO KNIFE
ZAININ NO USO
YAMI NO BANSOSHA
GARASU NO ASHI
2015 was truly the year of WOWOW shows and they have shown that tightly scripted 5-6 episode doramas are better unless the material actually requires 10 episodes. WOWOW has truly stepped up their game and they are so much better than everyone else. If only Japanese subs for their shows were available.
