I love the way this ended! ( I won't give spoilers.) I started watching this one afternoon and found myself going to bed at 7:45 am the next morning having completed it. It is definately a "I'll just watch one more episode" kind of drama. I was unfamiliar with all of the actors, but thery were great. The plot was definately a lot spicier than K-Drama. I would highly recommend this for read more a rainey Saturday or an all night marathon!!

This was cute, refreshing but didn't turn out the way I expected it to. I would have personally liked to have seen a different outcome. It could be quite funny and I liked how the female character evolved even though I would have made different choices. It's good for a quick light watch. Also a good introduction to jdramas.

They are both about women over 30 who fall in love with younger boys. Doubting that the relationship will work they both try to be attracted to men their own age and so they have to face conflicts and confusion. While Sore wa, Totsuzen, Arashi no you ni is very deep and dark, last cinderella is a mirror of this drama with lighter episodes and a bit of comedy.

The plot is not similar at all but both main heroines are so hilarious, how they got embarassed very easily. And the main guy falls for them beacause they are both so funny and light hearted.

    I'm a sucker for anything with Miura Haruma in it. Not only is he handsome, but the boy can act. I held off on watching this for a while because I heard mixed reviews at the timed it aired and most people seemed to dislike the ending. I'm glad I decided to watch it. It was pretty good. I loved the ending and the friendship between the 3 ladies was great. My only complaint was that they should have given Haruma's character more to do/development in the first few eps. All in all, a nice rom com.

    It's obvious Miura Haruma had a huge crush on Shinohara Ryoko or he was starstruck? Who'd blame him, right?

    I wanted it to end both ways.
    Alas, my dreams couldn't be.

    I started watching this drama last summer and the first episode was quite boring so i stopped.A Few days ago i tried to watch it again and i can say it's a preety good drama. You watch and you laugh but also cry a little but nothing is too much(maybe just the fact that the main roles are in their 40 but act like teenagers) I was surprised by heh ending because i wans't expecting that... and yup Miura Haruma made me watch it till the end, he is soooo cute! I saw him in Bloody Monday years ago and he seems younger now! haha. But him (as Hiroto) and Sakura don't really look like a couple... i guess the age gap was too much for me....and she is a beautiful woman but the way they dressed her and her make-up...when they were supposed to make her beautiful they couldn't, it wasn't that jaw-drop appearence...sorry. But it's a good drama give it a try at leat for Miura Haruma

    I tried watching the first episode, but stopped after about 15 minutes. Should I try again?

    I really enjoyed watching this drama. At first I thought that the age gap was going to make things awkward, but fortunately it did not.

    I was surprised by this drama, it started as any other silly comedy with cliche plot but as the storyline goes, the character development gets very good and the situations they go throught seem real to me
