Instead of making a personal thread, or asking in the favorites thread (which looks like it wasn't working out so well for recommendation requests) ask for Asian Drama recommendations here.

Some simple guidelines to follow:

Posts should be only about:
1. asking for a recommendation from fellow members
2. recommending Drama to a particular member who had requested earlier.

Be specific and clear:

Requesters:
1. Do include some information about what type of show you prefer to watch--J-Drama, K-Drama for starters, but also type of content--action, romance, intrigue, comedy?
2. If you aren't sure what you want to watch, but hope for recommendations that are similar to certain other shows you have watched, include a short list of those shows in your post.

Replies:
1. Quote part of the requester's post, so they'll get a notification, and so that it's clear which request you are replying to.
2. List a few titles which match the request, and if they are especially suited to a particular part of the request, specify that. Don't just info dump all of your favorites; be selective. (We've kept the favorites thread for that!)

Thanks for directing me here, lorreen!

Okay, everyone, I need some JDrama similar to Switch Girl!!
I finished watching Switch Girl!! 2 a couple months ago and have been looking for something similar ever since. KDrama are fine too, but I prefer JDrama. For those of you who haven't watched Switch Girl!!, it's a high school comedy.

Edit: Currently watching Mei-chan no Shitsuji, which I'm starting to really like.
Apparently, I prefer drama that are based on manga, so maybe that will help.

I've never watched an Asian drama before so I thought asking here would be a good place to start. I'd like to watch something that's either a comedy or a romance, preferably a JDrama but I'm not too picky about that.
Thanks!

I would recommend Hana Yori Dango. It has 2 seasons and a movie. It has romance and also a bit of comedy.
Highly recommend.

I highly recommend you watch Hana Kimi (Japanese) It is a good mixture of comedy and romance
You might also want to try Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and Hana Yori Dango.

I've never seen J-drama before but I'd like to start watching. As far as what I like... Hmm... Well I love anime. I watch all kinds of stuff.

This is my profile on myanimelist. You can see the anime's I've seen and rated.
In short, I tend to be a sucker for romance, but not some silly melodrama. I also love action. Some of my favorite anime's are things like Steins;Gate, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Psycho-Pass, K-On, Chuunibyou, Say, "I love you", and my all time favorite: Clannad.
I tend to enjoy sad things too. So maybe a romance tragedy/drama. If it's an action show I like there to be a small romance on the side, like in Fate/Stay Night or, most recently, Kyoukai no Kanata. I also love shows that can blend comedy and romance drama together really well like Clannad and the currently airing Golden Time (creators of Toradora).

The OP said to be specific about what you're looking for, hopefully that will help.

Edit: Also, if at all possible, I'd like for them to be available here on Crunchyroll.

Can someone recommend a JDrama that's a comedy?

So far I've watched, and liked the following;
- Switch Girl 1 & 2
- Yamada and the 7 Witches

After watching several anime to live-action adaptations, I fell in love with the genre. I tend to fall for dramas with funny, awkward scenes, as well as goofy leads, (male or female .. it's usually not both). I guess I'm really looking for really over the top series, b/c the amount of ridiculousness that goes within them are amusing.
For people looking for comedy, I'd recommend the ones i've seen b/c they're pretty humorous.

I thought I wasn't going to like Random Hero, because it was so cheesy. But it's got your goofy lead, and awkwardness, and after just a couple of episodes I discovered it was quite a lot of fun.
