FUJI TV makes some good dramas in my opinion. Ive only just finished watching "ENGINE" again, a drama starring Kimutaku and Koyuki. It was shown on TV from March 2005, but unfortunately due to the hours I worked, I couldnt see all the episodes, so it was nice to watch it again and fully understand what was going on.
I think JDrama gives a good explanation:
"Jiro Kanzaki is an F3000 test driver blessed with acute sensitivity and breathtaking driving techniques. He's a daredevil who feels no fear driving at speeds that even top racers dare not attempt. But unexpected trouble forces this world-famous racer to leave his team and return to Japan for the first time in years. Until he finds a new job as a racer, Jiro decides to stay with his parents. What awaits Jiro there is his hardheaded father, his nagging sister, the 12 children of the foster home his father runs, a snobbish male nurse, and a stubborn female nurse who likes to daydream about her life. Jiro's return home brings a breath of fresh air that influences the people around him. However, he is still unaware that he too will eventually be influenced to change the way he thinks and lives."
As he tries to save what he has come to believe in, and his life is turned upside down, he uses the only thing he can - racing. But, with his own future in racing on the line and everyone's hopes on him, can he pull through?
Its a funny yet sad drama with a tad of romance thrown in.
I loved it ^^
