    a sensitive examination of issues that you rarely see in j dramas, along with pretty solid writing and great performances by an excellent cast.
    I don't think that this drama succeeded at everything it tried to do: there were one or two topics that I thought could have been better (e.g. the subplot involvign the two fathers). But overall it was great: a sensitive examination of issues that you rarely see in j dramas, along with pretty solid writing and great performances by an excellent cast. (And, I should hasten to add, it's not all ...

    A Very Touching Drama
    I really enjoyed this show. It's not the typical drama, and while it can be a bit slow and doesn't have a lot of action, the characters draw you into their lives. This slice of life drama explores the messy side of real life: relationship, cultural, and societal issues, and depression.

    One of the best dramas from japan I've seen.
    I loved this show. Good acting, Good camera work. Great story. Not a lot of action but still each episode would grab my full attention and not let it go. If you like a true to life crazy offbeat and just like real life where nothing is perfect story this is for you.

    Great Story!!!!!!!!!
    I am not a fan of dramas by any stretch of the imagination but, this show surprised me. This story was a heartwarming slice of life of modern day Japan. It touches on many issues; cultural, societal, emotional ect. that are relevant to Japan today.Having spent a considerable amount of time in Japan I have witnessed and experienced some of these issues first hand which for me made the story that ...

    Beautiful story with a lot of emotion...
    The first episode was kinda slow starting but the episodes to follow picked up.

    This is a great story of friendship, family and personal drama and hardship. It's very heavy on dark emotions but there are light and comedic moments to help balance everything out and make you forget about the darkness.

    Please don't mistake my previous statement as this being a depressing story because it's ...

    Hit home for me!! <3 <3
    A heart wrenching story with a happy ending. It's not your traditional love story and that's what sets it aside from your typical dramas. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed, but that does not reflect the quality of everything prior. I would totally watch a sequel if one ever did became available. All in all it's definitely a must watch!

    Personally, it's too slow
    CONS:
    I've seen many dramas, but this one was quite slow. The story pacing felt like it was dragging itself to the finish line, content was interesting however got bland quick. The characters felt 'human' and believable, but the conversations and dialogue didn't flow and is a little confusing. It's a screenplay and felt like that most of the time. What bothered me was she was scared to love ...

    uhh.. is this considered a show
    the ending and beginning is great but the progression of this show is too slow and not to mention both of those dimwits you see on that bench are the most indecisive people you ever see in a drama.. the summary of this show.. a dysfunctional couple involving two depressed 30 years old that couldn't make up theyre mind if they wanted to decide to get married off the notion that they're lonely and ...
