It has been one and a half years since Aizawa Kosaku, Shiraishi Megumi, Hiyama Mihoko and Fujikawa Kazuo were assigned to Shoyo University's North Hospital. They have only three months left of their fellowship programme (specialised training programme) to be flight doctors and each of them have come to the crossroads where they have to think of their lives after graduation.

“The existence of doctors confirm that miracles do not exist, yet the doctors themselves always hope for miracles for their patients.”

If you're not familiar in hospital/medical term, Code Blue are used in hospitals to alert the EMS Department and staff to various emergencies. The scene they head towards is always the worst and sometimes can't help but deal with the situations they are in whether it's good or bad. And those read more events will always work together for their own good as a doctor. Now, what does it mean to be a doctor?

This is not a drama with "at the edge on your seat". What I like in this series is the "Character Development" so it's not really about the intense to medical term but rather how those intern struggle to become a certified doctors. Though the season 1 has a cheesy scenes and you might find some problematic character or the actor/actress maybe? LOL. But still, you have to watch it before proceeding to Season 2.

The series may be too slow, Season 2 is way better than Season 1. The characters will slowly change and goes to their background. The story itself doesn't need to narrate each of their past, the "sympathy and compassion" alone towards their patients is what makes and already tell who they really are.

Each episode clearly illustrate the cruelty of medical society, it's sad but that's the reality. There were several heart-rending scenes and the OST is good. Not superb but enough to set the atmosphere.

I remember one thing in this drama that, "Taking a long way is not a bad thing, instead it'll bring out the best thing inside someone."

Hontouni, it's burdened a bit and yet inspiring. Life is mysterious, deeply painful at times, yet always beautiful. We all have memories of loved ones whom we have lost. Being a doctor is not an easy job. When grieving the loss of life of their patients, the intensity of their human emotions is actually a testament to the value of human life. And that will change your life forever. Am I too dramatic, ne? I'm not even a doctor myself. Sumi-masen! XD


Overall, I think the drama wasn’t as engaging as other Jdoramas I’ve seen although I have to applaud the writer somehow for some of the well written dialogues. What I like in Jdoramas is usually they have these almost poetic dialogues and sometimes, they speak in their thoughts. So I gave it 8 + 1 (For Erika Toda) = 9. As you watch this one, you may have to be attentive and careful observation between the characters.. No, you don't need to over-analyze it. XD

I love Hanabi by Mr. Children. Moving and sad.

"What value left is there
in this world I live in?
I start thinking its all meaningless
or maybe I’m just tired?"

"We all have our problems
but we hope for a better tomorrow
I wonder to what extent we can love a world
gripped by fear, thrown into unrest?"


PS.
I've read a small trivia somewhere. The main three character’s names were actually related with colors.

Ai zawa == Blue (calm)
Shirai shi == White (passive)
Hi yama == Red (emotional)

Also, a Japanese saying that Blue means “vein”, White means “gauze”, Red means “artery”. XD

I don't even know where to begin in praising this drama. It is simply spectacular from every angle, a must watch whether you're a fan of medical dramas or not. Each episode is unique in that a valuable message is conveyed and of course there is on going drama throughout. It is a heart warming, tear evoking, beautiful drama with a lovely mix of comedy too. It is mostly serious which is read more usually a given with medical dramas but it is far from boring and always leaves you appreciating all that you have in your own life and wanting to see more of it.

I would have given it a straight 10 in all categories but the instrumental music in season 2 did feel a tad too repetitive so I gave it a 9. Having said that, it was played effectively at the right times to enhance the emotional factor so for that I'd definitely give it a 10, not to mention the theme itself was poigantly beautiful and well composed for the drama.

All in all, a must watch for all drama lovers! ^^
It's definitely one of my faves now n_n.

    Oh and I forgot to add, the ending theme fits perfectly with the whole feel of the drama and all that it represents. The lyrics are truly heartwarming and down to earth. 'Tis well chosen! ^^

    A lot more serious than the first season, a lot more tearjerking scenes but also incredible character development, lovable supporting characters and of course it stayed interesting so I never took a break or thought it dragged.
    I just love this series and am more than disappointed that it's finished.

      People who liked CB recommended JIN to me, but I didn't try it yet. You should start with the first season, though. :D
