#WeLoveDrama's Next Streaming Series

We've streamed a lot of dramas in the past year and change, and now that we've accomplished the goal of exposing more people to the entertaining mess that is Keizoku 2: SPEC, we're giving you the option of choosing the next show from the following:

Ikebukuro West Gate Park - Based on a manga, a young man in an area known for gangs runs around helping people, often against his will.  I haven't finished this show but I've always heard good things.  Older show.
Relevant stars to your interests: A young YamaPi, Watanabe Ken, that Japanese guy from every American movie that involves a Japanese guy, Kubozuka Yusuke from GTO (Kikuchi) and Battle Royale.

Last Friends - A young woman in an abusive relationship moves in with her best friend from middle school that she hasn't seen since and three complete strangers.  The red string of fate ties them together or something.  High points: Dat theme song.  Low points: Your emotions in tangles.  Relevant stars to your interests: Ueno Juri from Nodame Cantabile.

Saru Lock - Based on a manga, a perverted locksmith, his perverted best friend, and the other best friend that probably isn't a perverted somehow get themselves involved in dangerous cases revolving around lockpicking.  High points: Pretty funny show.  Low points: Movie stayed unsubbed for years.  Relevant Stars to your interests: Ichihara Hayato from ROOKIES (Aniya), Ashina Sei from Stand Up!! (tall bully of the four girls) and Bloody Monday (Minami).

Team Batista No Eiko (The Glory of Team Batista) - The death of three patients in a row during a surgery following 27 straight successes is being investigated as a potential medical mistake by a doctor in over his head.  Before he completely blows it, a badass Ministry of Health official shows up to take over the investgation.  High point: You will say what the fuck a lot.  Low points: You will say what the fuck a lot.  Also Densha Otoko dude grates on me.  Relevant stars to your interests: Shaku Yumiko from Stand Up!! (Sexy English Teacher), Shirota Yuu from ROOKIES and Keizoku 2: SPEC (crazy stalker not boyfriend) and Ito Atsushi from Densha Otoko.

Unfair - A take no prisoners, I make no mistakes kind of cop, she has created many grudges against herself over her career.  In this show, those grudges come back in full force along with a serial killer.  Also the lead is apparently a nudist of some sort.  High points:  Pretty good cast with lots of familiar faces, mystery is also pretty good.  Low points: The translation is pretty confusing and head-scratching.  High point or low point: It uses Destiny's Child "Survivor" as an insert song that makes NO SENSE.  Relevant Stars to your interests: None that we've seen in previous streams.

Almost all of these shows are in youtube in full strangely enough.  The poll will run until the final week of streaming the SPEC movies/specials.
