watched a while back
really enjoyed it
the drama that started my major crush on hongo kanata
and i like the guy who played the oldest brother
and the main girl was good too
however the person who played her boss
i see her in like roles being so poise
seeing her playing like a kinda funny role was awkward

Definitely agree. Hongo Kanata and Kaname Jun are definitely pluses, but SAKAI MASATO (!!!) is a terrific actor, and of course, he's wonderful in this drama. This was really funny too, with a simple but enjoyable plot. On top of that, the opening song "Baby Don't Cry" by Namie Amuro is so freaking addictive. I've never really been a fan of Namie Amuro (not really into her style but her voice is amazing), but I couldn't stop listening to this song!

It's definitely a drama you can enjoy at a leisurely pace

I really liked this drama It's not one that I would watch over and over-- though I do like to watch the first episode a lot, haha-- but I really enjoyed watching it. The reason I wouldn't watch it again, though, is because I didn't really like the ending. I thought that
but... still good. The characters were all quirky and loveable and the dialogue never really dragged.
