I thought this would just be a funny story of a nerdy guy trying to win his office crush, but it turned out to be a lot more. For starters, it got really complicated and exciting. It made me watch several episodes back to back. It was really funny, but it wasn't as shallow as I expected it to be. Surprisingly, there was a lot of growth, love, forgiveness, and redemption seen read more in almost all of the characters. I was really happy with the ending and the character development, and the drama itself was a lot of fun. So if you're in the mood for something funny, and you have the patience to watch a character grow then I would recommend it to you.

i managed to watch Boys on the run til the very end.
- i still dislike Maruyama. gomen. there are moments when i think wow he's actually kakkoi, but these moments are SO FEW. really.
- i LOVE Saito Takumi. he's HOT, talented, has luscious lips... wow.
- UEDA UEDA UEDA UEDA UEDA MOOOORE. really. i started watching this because of him, and HE GETS LIKE ONLY 4 MINUTES IN EVERY read more EPISODE. FOOUUR. that's-NOT-ENOUGH. i LOVE him like this badass, rude, i-don't-give-a-rat's ass-about-you character and honestly, his acting is not as bad as i expected.
- aaand another drama, where the main girl wasn't annoying as hell.
I'm not going to watch this drama again, but hmm. it's a good one-time-only drama. makes you laugh (sometimes disgusted...) and if you like Maruyama, you'll have a great time.

    Other than the likable female lead, everything else about this was painfully dumb.

    Just one question, how can you be in love with someone but have sex with another? It's called super shallow. People who fall so easily don't deserve another's love. That isn't love to begin with to fall into another's arm and sleep with them when you supposedly love someone, it's absolutely despicable!!!!!!!! :(

    At least he ends up with the proper gal in the end. Once again this movie reminded me as to why I'll never marry again. Awesome ending!!! :)

    This was really complicated, instead of the comedy I expected.

    Btw, I think Taira Airi should also be in Main Role.. I mean come on!

      according to the japanese wikipedia, this is scheduled to end on September 7 It airs every Friday, in the 23:15 time spot, but there were some delays due to the olympics and British Golf Open on July 20. 8 episodes aired so far, the last one on August 31, and it looks like it's the last one this week so it looks like there are a total of 9 episodes.

    Sounds like the main protagonist may be a likeable character. I will wait until it finishes airing but I sure hope the drama will not ridicule the protagonist, I hate that.
