I was pretty skeptical when I first looked into it, but I was glad that I didn't turn away. If you're looking for a drama with a good plot, characters and acting.. you've found it.

You think you know where the story is going, but then they throw a few "huh!?" moments at you. It keeps you on your seat, eagerly waiting to find out what happens next.

It's a very dramatic read more yet touching story and something I would recommend to those who enjoy a good plot filled with the twists and turns we all know and love from dramas.

(Though a warning to those with triggers, as there are some light ones)

This drama is so under-rated, it's not even funny. I LOVE this drama! The actors do a fantastic job! Everything just feels so real. The romance is bitter-sweet and filled with innocence (hence the title.) I loved the song by Hikaru Utada "Eternally". It goes well with the drama. I also love the fact that the main girl is Christain. Not many Japanese are Christain, so it's nice to see it in read more dramas. This drama will make you cry, smile, laugh, and sad all at the same time. It is so simple yet so sweet. The two must overcome serious obsticles to be with each other, so much so that it would tear anyone apart. When this was airing, I would rewatch episodes while I waited for the next one to come out. The only thing I really didn't like was the end. I thought it was a bit off, but that's just me. I was still satisfied with it though. I would recommend this drama to anyone. Watch this!

    Had it not been for the most despicable and trash and obsessive triangles in this drama, it would have been a strong and solid 9. No integrity or morals whatsoever to add such trash as these most selfish triangles. NONE!

      If love is involved in or with the selflessness and sacrificing, there's never, nor should there be, nor should there be a limit put on it, to say there's a limit to it is just selfish thinking. To truly love means to unconditionally sacrifice, and with no expectations of anything back in return. So I most strongly beg to differ with you say it's only good to a limit, such wrong thinking. :)))

    This was gut-wrenching. I originally watched it for Hiroki but I didn't mind that he was a secondary character! I cried and was angry and was finally happy!! I enjoyed it!

    I tried to keep on watching it, but it started to get too stupid. I don't get why everyone was so obsessed with Junya. Horikita and the guy who played Junya acted poorly. Well, I can't say much because I only watched until episode 7.

    I think I had my hopes too high after reading so many positive reviews... As for me it was below average, the only thing that pushed me to complete this drama was this whole 'secret past' thingy.
    I used to like Horikita Maki's acting but in my opinion in this drama it was horrible. I think I won't watch anything starring her in a long long time now.
