After seeing how excited everyone was for this adaptation I hopped on the bandwagon and started watching as well. I wasn't disappointed per say, but this wasn't the best feature either.

Based off the manga of the same name, I can't honestly judge how accurate of an adaptation this was. Overall, the story was completely and utterly rushed during the second half. Originally slated to be a ten to eleven episode drama, read more unfortunately got cut into 9 episodes resulting in pretty mixed feeling for most. While all the ends are tied up and most everyone gets a happy ending; as a viewer you won't be satisfied in the slightest since everything is so quickly thrown together. The pacing of the first episodes was pleasent and enjoyable, but around episode 7 you can see the marked change in pace.

Overall, the acting was really well done. No one is over the top dramatic, but you'll still get your juicer moments you crave. For Yamamura Ryuta (Nanaryu)'s first role, he's surpirsingly charming and well rounded. He's a bit of a rock; he doesn't get too emotional, but the rather smooth delivery and consistancy for this drama is key. Nishiuchi Mariya (Asuka) is pleasent and not overwelming, dispite who her character is set up and devotion to her beliefs is very convincing. The side characters, from friends to family to implied romantic partners are all belivable and likeable as a whole. There's no real 'villian' character, much to my surprise but the plot still plays out well. All the characters are fairly well developed, aside from their rushed ending. I'm curious to see where Shono Hayama (Kanade), and Kishii Yukino (Momoko) end up in their next roles.

Nishiuchi Mariya lends her voice for the ending theme, and it suits the series well. The music is nothing special, but happily lends itself where it needs to be. My rewatches are always low so no worries.

Overall, this story had the potential to be a really good adaptation. What killed the series was having the content cut from 10/11 episodes down to 9. Not a favorite series of mine, but one I didn't mind passing the time with.

This drama because it had so much potential! The first few episodes were excellent, but rushed writing really brought the quality down near the end. It still gets an overall 8 from me for it’s strong start that gave me all sorts of cute butterfly feelings, but it just couldn’t maintain that initial wow factor.

The beginning of this drama was absolutely adorable! It was refreshing to see two adults be, well, read more adults about their relationship and the romantic chemistry between the leads was electric. But the plot really started struggling once it began focusing too much on the male lead’s perceived struggles rather than Asuka’s storyline. Despite his good looks and soft-spoken charm, he became such a noble idiot that I actually switched loyalties to the second lead, something I rarely do. It’s pretty clear that cutting the length of this drama had a negative impact on the script writing and subsequent character development.

Nishiuchi Mariya really carried this drama and I loved her portrayal of Asuka. First-time actor Yamamura Ryuta impressed me a lot too and I hope he continues acting. The supporting cast didn’t have much to work with when their characters got quickly pushed into random plots near the end but they also performed very well. There was so much potential!

Conclusion: It was a good drama that needed more time to develop its plot and characters. Not a must-watch but if you like cute and realistic relationships check it out!

    Started out great but kinda went downhill. Nice music. Ryuta-san acts well for his first role.

    This a lighthearted drama, the main couple is very cute and have good chemistry, is not the best romance drama out there but is pretty entertaining. I was thinking not to watch it because it has so many negative comments here, but I'm glad I decided to watch it. So give it a chance!

    I love this drama. The relationships were so realistic and the main couple was so refreshing. It's been awhile since I smiled and teared up over a romantic getsuku drama.

    It's a bit like in life. First they all try to get their way and interfere, then when the damage is done they start to realize what mess they made out of other people's lifes, they come crawling to apologise. (=_=) They're really there, those people who don't think even a single step ahead due to their selfish desires. This drama is overfloing with such people. If it had a second season the whole extent of the damage done would unfold until nothing is left. In worst case not even the good memories.

    Just finished due to LONG subbing periods for Jdrama. This could have been 7 eps if he would have just awakened earlier. 2eps were solely him brooding miserably over his own stupidity. Liked the female development which was FAR more and 2ps sooner than him. Not a bad watch, just stretched too long for a fast eps9.

    I thought this drama started out very promising. However, by the time I reached E5, I started getting frustrated with it. The noble idiocy towards the end drove me crazy.

    I'm still glad I watched it though. I never followed flumpool so was completely new to Yamamura Ryuta. I was surprised to find this was his first acting role. He was quite good. Very natural. I look forward to seeing more of him.
