You would think that I'm exaggerating the scores or just simply click 10 points for everything by coincidence but no!
This is a really great series. It reminds me of Tru Calling but in Japanese style with lots of jokes. We get to know new people and stories in every episodes. The first episode is a bit boring but don't trust it just give a try to the second one! :D I read more promise you won't be disappointed.
Keiko and Shosuke makes a great pairing in this drama who tries to solve cases because of Keiko's visions. They're joking around everytime. I laughed a lot.
This is an awesome series about crimes, investigations flavored with humour.

Skip to the Overview if this is TL;DR.
This drama very much fits the usual standard for Japanese dramas; a series of events, usually with a pattern, and an underlying storyline.
SPECIAL NOTE: I cried in 3 episodes. In a 10 Episode drama. Usually, the only dramas that get me crying are the epic 25 episode long ones- and even then, they have to have POSITIVELY HEART-SHATTERINGLY SAD ENDINGS. Or no tears read more are shed. In this way, this drama is impressive.

Story- It had a very good idea for the story, but I don't know if I agreed with how it was executed. There were definitely some loose ends I would like tied up, and the ending wasn't satisfactory.

Cast- I thoroughly enjoyed the cast, I think they all did very well. :) The lady that plays Momoko is a very good actress; I'm currently watching her in another drama and she plays the polar opposite character of Momoko, to the extent that I can barely believe it's her.

Music- I actually remember a lot of the music from this one, which is a little bit of a surprise (in a good way). It was really quirky and it always fit with the scene. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes tense. The intro song is beautiful as well.

I wouldn't watch this drama again any time soon, although I enjoyed it. It simply isn't a drama made for rewatching is all.

Overall, it's a little bit of a frivolous drama, very funny (I legitimately lol'ed several times) and heart touching. Don't watch it if you're looking for romance, a completely sensical and complete storyline, or a particularly unpredictable or serious drama.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both dramas have the same actress as the main lead. Both main leads are going to know bad events about to happen beforehand and stop/change it. However, there's still difference between the two dramas which attracts you to watch it! Highly recommended! :D

    I realy loved this drama. The only bad thing about it was that it ended too fast. I'd say there should have been at least ~3 more episodes, hehe. ^^
    Even though it was extremely funny I cried in it. What the heck? ;DDD

    Now I know why everybody is complaining about the end...it wasn't bad, just kind of...abrupt! Apart from that, it was a great drama...I would love to see a second season, there's still a lot of things to explain!

    Really easy to watch. Very enjoyable. Keiko Kitagawa is so funny-cute in this, not in her looks, but in her acting. Tanihara's obsession with foreign women is also hilarious. Keiko and Tanihara have great chemistry together in this.
