I would give this an 8, which for me means, I liked it a lot, but I'm giving it an extra point because it has masterpiece qualities to it. It's such a unique drama. It's short, slow paced, and it doesn't focus on a direct story line, but it has such a powerful way of invoking the feels through it's atmosphere, music, dialogue and characters. This drama just had a unique way of coming out of the screen and working on the inside of me. There were several moments where I felt touched and moved, but what was interesting was that it was not in a way you would expect. It was different in a good way. It was even sad, but in a good way. I also really loved the movie quality film production, and the acting was very good.

STORY:
It didn't need grand settings, situations, or even words just to get the drama's messages across the viewers. It was simple yet touching. The major points and plot twists in the story were executed with the right timing. Maybe, I was just a little confused (and curious at the same time) during the first few episodes since it didn't directly present a concrete story line right at the beginning.

CAST/ACTING:
The cast was superb. And no, I am not exaggerating about it. Their acting made me really feel that this kind of story does really happen and that how they acted is the way people react to this kind of situation. Also, let me just say, "oh, Odagiri Joe."

MUSIC:
All I can say is that the first few lines of the ending song gets through and pierces my heart. Bow.

OVERALL:
I was entertained by the story (I laughed and cried a lot) and at the same time I was reminded of a lot of good things about life and growing up (or old). I will certainly watch it again. :)
