    It ended. Now, I hate myself for finishing it fast. This kind of drama leaves a lasting impression.

      I downloaded the raw videos via torrent (not sure I can specifically say where on this site?) and got the softsubs from d-addicts.

    OMG "Goggle Fighter," ahahaha... As a Kamen Rider/toku fan, I found eps.09-10 to be extra-enjoyable.

    This show, now that's it's being regularly (and surprisingly quickly!) fansubbed, has quickly become my must-watch-first show every week when new subs come out.

    I'm so, so happy someone decided to sub it; I've been waiting (and hanging onto the 720p raws) since it aired last year in the hopes that someone would give it a go, and I've not been disappointed!

      Well... the show's just as much about the 2 leads navigating the ins & outs of the entertainment industry and learning to work together as it is about the love story, and since it's a J-drama the romance isn't lathered on too thickly (though personally I prefer romance in these carefully measured increments, because imo waiting for it makes the payoff all the greater). But it's been a while since I've seen an (intentional, canonical) drama romance that I've enjoyed as much as I have this so far (ironically K-dramas, which are often *focused* on the romance, lately have left me unmoved by their heavy-handedness, but maybe I have strange tastes).

      What follows is an actual ep.07-08 SPOILER:

    This drama will remain in my WISH list until someone take pity on me and sub it.

    Okay, here's the part of the comment section where I flat-out start whining: WHY ISN'T ANYONE FANSUBBING THIS?!?

    I have no delusions about how much work it takes to fansub something (the answer is A LOT), I'm just quite surprised that a drama starring someone whom I assumed to be such a popular actress (am I wrong?) would be so overlooked. *cries*

    Ahh well, here's hoping that years from now some fan finds this unsubbed gem (? - judging from comments here) and decides to throw us a bone.

    It feels like it's been a while since I've enjoyed a good jdrama so I wasn't expecting anything much from this (partly because Nakama Yukie isn't always the easiest to watch), but I'm so glad I decided to give this a chance! It's very character driven and delves into a range of different human stories that really shape the landscape of the show, rather than seeming like tacked on side stories. Character development is great, and the show has this way of making you root for certain characters to succeed. Watching Sakisaka (Machida) grow as a person and foster his talent as an actor is one of the main things that kept me coming back week after week. The interactions between him and Sawatari (Nakama) are also interesting to watch.

    It's a shame this hasn't been subbed in English yet but if it ever is, or if you can get by watching it raw or with Chinese subs (links to both in previous comments below), I recommend giving it a try~

    The description gives the impression that this is mainly a romance drama, however any romance is largely in the background while the drama focuses more on the characters and their experiences in the entertainment industry. It's an ok enough drama, but the description is somewhat misleading.
