Toko (Fukatsu Eri), decides after she turns 30 that she is all but ready to give up on any future career hopes or romance, so she turns to the bottle for comfort. She knows that this isn't the best thing, but can't find the strength right now to do anything except choose the easy way to do things. This causes her to start getting down on herself. Luckily though, she doesn't give read moreup hope completely, and tries to take things as they come. Which proves to help to some degree.

Suddenly one day, a guy by the name of Kotaro (Tsutsumi Shinichi) comes along. Like Toko, Kotaro hasn't had much luck at work either. Even so, this is still the same guy that Toko liked when she was younger. Naturally, Toko is thrilled to see Kotaro after such a long time, but eventually finds out that he is about as insensitive as you can get, and is self-centered to boot. This really gets to Toko. What's worse is that Toko ends up starting a small company with him, even though she had to leave her position at a large company because of trouble they were involved in together. -- Fuji TV

There aren't many dramas that I stay up watching. You get drawn into this young group who courageously leave their comfortable jobs to start an advertising agency. The four are individually talented, and have great chemistry together. You feel their joy, laughter, creative dreams, disappointments, love, and sadness as the venture along. The journey centers around lowly Toko (Fukatsu), the office manager. And you quickly come to realize she is the true read more spirit of the group. The underlying romance builds slowly until you have to know the resolution. Will the firm succeed? Will they stay together? The acting, music, and story line are all superb. Sometimes the older dramas are the best.

    This is a great story and very delicate and romantic. I liked the way they managed to represent a very believable and interesting story in the workplace and at the same time wave inside it a very suffered love story. The main actor, Tsutsumi Shinichi is fantastic and I would like to see him in more dramas. The OST goes really well with this story too and I liked it very much.

      He's one of the most genuine actors out there and is probably more of a stage than tv actor. good for him. Good luck is where I really love him- that role was great for him. No one plays captain koda like he does, capturing his troubled self.

      well maybe he is more of a stage actor. he hasn;t played in any dramas since what 2009? I think it;s harder for older actors nowadays, becaise of the obsession with tyecandy. It;s such a shame, though, he is a genuine actor. I really liked Koi no Chikara, it;s a quirky story about realising yourself in work, realising your talent, and about finding that compatible love. It was a very sweet, simple story, though felt strained at time. I don;t think he's very cofmrotable with doing confessions, and the role in Good luck felt more comfprtable for him, but still I really liked this.
