^Mother sounds quite good. I'll have to check it out.
I'm watching Shinzanmono. I like it so far, but it does have the potential to be very formulaic (i.e., rule out one suspect per episode). I always love watching Abe Hiroshi's facial expressions, though. I also plan to watch Sunao ni Narenakute and Rinjo 2 from this season.
Having recently finished Keitai Deka Zenigata Mai, I'm now watching Rai. The murder mysteries are light with very cheesy humor, but for some reason I enjoy them. The short length of each episode doesn't hurt either.
