To be honest, I only started watching this because of Yamada Ryosuke. I really liked him from Hidarime Tantei eye,so i was looking forward to this drama ever since it was it was announced to be released. It has plenty of fight scenes, and the use of graphics and its quality was very impressive.Acting and Cast was good, specially the main characters; they were great. I loved the twisted and strange love read more between the mother and son. and for all those Yamada fans, it got great footage of bishounen Yamada :D

A downside of the drama is that it is fairly predictable. The previews pretty much told the story of the next episode. The drama stretches the realism, a LOT. For me , this drama is not the type that I will re watch.

So, if you are looking for something funny with action and a bishounen guy, I would really recommend this. but be warned, it is very unrealistic.

To be honest... this was the most surreal, bizarre, interesting, hilarious, scary, nerve-wracking, heart wrenching, heart breaking drama that I have watched this month! And that's saying a lot! The casting was amazing; everyone's personal skill, unique personalities and characteristics came out perfectly and they all balanced and acted off of each other very well! The story, plot line, surprise moments, twists and turns, and especially the entire script was amazing! I read more never once guessed the unexpected ending, and there were a few moments where I hated/disliked a couple of the characters, but throughout each episode that definitely goes away. There were parts in a few episodes where I had to pause and rewind just to re-watch a certain moment because I couldn't stop laughing! Nakajima Yuto was completely unrecognizable in this drama; I don't know if it was the glasses, the hair, or the way he portrayed his character (aka Kobayashi Kouji) but it was superbly done! Also, this is definitely one of Yamada Ryosuke's best shows; he shows the full extent of his skill, I believe at least. This is one of the oddest shows I've watched, but I wasn't bored and never once wanted to stop in the middle of the series. I'm so glad I finished this show! It will definitely be a re-watch in the future! I seriously suggest that a lot more people watch this show!

One is a daughter's love for her father and the other is a son's love for his mother. Both are family comedies. Both are really good.

    You can see that Yamada is serious in his craft. Apparently, his role is more mature than his kaa-chan

    So funny. Every episode has a message, a new friend, and hence and new animal. I started this drama on a whim, but fell in love with it instantly. Love Yama, Taipi, and Yuto here!

    I think Yama-chan, Taipi and Yuto fit really well with their characters (Yama-chan?s sweetness, Taipi?s toughness and Yuto?s cowardliness, lol)

    Just finished watching the first three episodes and I gotta say, it's really funny and I'm really curious about how it'll turn out! Even though there are some lame moments, there are others that are just so funny and interesting that I gotta keep watching ^o^ I think it's worth watching :)
