elenniel: Yoko Thinking (hmmm)
Sekai Ichi Muzukashii Koi (up to episode 9): What a waste of the chemistry between Kitamura Kazuki and Koike Eiko. A WASTE. >_< I feel zero investment in the Samejima/Shibayama storyline so all my interest was in the potential of Wada/Muraoki. Looks like they only held on to that idea for 4 episodes in the middle. I doubt they're going to bring it back in episode 10 at all, much less in a satisfactory way. Siiiigh.

99.9% (up to episode 9): Well, it's amusing. Neither thrilling nor disappointing.

Watashi Kekkon Dekinai Janakute, Shinain Desu (watched up to episode 6, but heard about the ending already): Based on what I've heard of the ending, it's superbly irritating. And is an even bigger waste of precious narrative screentime throughout the season - that is, time invested in a backstory that eventually doesn't really pay off.

Juhan Shuttai (up to episode 9): Best drama of the four, and I'm so glad I picked this up! I really like the little insights into the manga publishing process. I also like that the protagonist is the typical genki type without being irritating. Possibly that's because it's not the sort of story where the Amazing Protagonist waltzes into the neighbourhood/office/school/whatever and magically changes everyone around him/her for the better. I dislike that. Rather, it shows how her colleagues interact with her, with maybe only one that is directly influenced by her attitude. Most of them don't change - or aren't even in need of change. The one that you'd think should really change, doesn't. Instead, what you get is an insight into why he became so cold and cranky. She does help the situation with several of the mangaka, but not all of them. I reeeeally appreciate that the series shows the others instead of just her.
