Fantastic acting, production value, cinematography, sound track. It was pretty much a movie production stretched into drama. Ayano Go is amazing here as the 'monster' created from dead people, where a scientist had altered some genetic material and revived. He learns about what it means to live, be a human, and human emotions like love, fear, displacement, friendship. Less sci-fi and more fantasy, and slower paced than it could be, still, its read more beautiful tone throughout is worth watching every minute. Finely calibrated performances from Ayano and Nikkaido, at a level you don't normally see in TV dramas. Take out the annoying side characters and you have a perfect drama.

A modern classic!
"Frankenstein no Koi" has an interesting story with a better narrative, I liked it, the cinematography was beautiful giving an old and modern touch, the soft soundtrack that moved the cast in a very good performance. Perhaps what he sinned in the drama was the very basic story, although he did like it, it is not a fun novel worthy of Korean dramas, it is behaved within the average read more and Japanese standards, yet highly enjoyable!

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Non-human beings learn what it means to be human and how they became "monsters". Franken no Koi has romance. Yokai Ningen Bem doesn't have any romance, and instead focuses on the relationships between family and friends.

Similar feeling. Supernatural. Human beings living together with "monsters" (people call them "monsters" because of their difference, non-humanity, no social skills, supernatural abilities). Drama, friendship and romance a bit.

    I'm posting this comment on July 23rd, 2017. I'll be back in 2 years and this drama will still not be subtitled in English yet.

      LMAO!! I know what you mean. The one doing subs for this (mottofreaky on twitter. People we're unfortunately stealing her subs *cough dramacool*) but it's actually being subbed by someone on wordpress: mydearkdramas.wordpress.com. They have up to episode 9, and will finish subbing episode 10. The twitter user dropped it because she didn't like it anymore, but there one person subbing!! It's right on their home page. I'm waiting till it's fully subbed/uploaded to binge watch. Should be done soon!

    I love the cast and I’ve tried really hard to enjoy this but I'm afraid the mushroom part is too ridiculous :(

    I'm still at the 4th episode of the drama and while I mainly picked this drama for its stellar casts e.g. Ayano Gou, Nikaido Fumi, and Yagira Yuya.. the drama has what it takes to deliver / convey messages to the viewer on what is it like to be a human or what does it take to be one and so on.. and so far almost every episode moved me. I'd say Ayano Gou's acting is the highlight too. His crying scenes are always my favorite. I'd recommend this but please don't give up on the first two episodes as it may come out slow. :)

    Just watched the first episode, a nice mix of cute moments, sad bits and funny bits, also bath scene. Definitely looking forward to more. I only wish it was centered around mushrooms less, i have this weird irational fear of fungus growing on my skin, and this drama just awakens that fear completely. Highly recommend from the first ep, if you dont have a weird mushroom phobia like me though. I'm not saying its great, but it has potential!

      One day, just one day, you'll die and fungi will take over your body. On the plus side, thank you for your comment, I will watch this.

    Dropped! The old sounding 1980s erie music they played ruined the moment every time. Ayano Go acting wasn't bad, but I found the main girl character horrible. And the special effects was so... I'll just say I had myself a good laugh and cringe. X(

      It's still airing right now and only two episodes are subtitled for now. The person who started subbing this drama said they were busy with school until mid-June!

      Even now there are 3 eps with English subs. There are raw vids and subs not connected to vids up to 8 that I can find, so if you can be bothered thats another way to watch. But yeah, seems like few people have picked up this J Drama, Many thanks to those who have <3
