    Story: The storyline was ok. I mean it was kind of typical Japanese romantic manga/anime plot. I will say this is the 1st Japanese drama I have watched from beginning to end. It had me glued plus the episodes are about 45 minutes long, so they were a little shorter than typical Korean drama episodes. There is a huge age gap between the main couple and the ending while I liked it, it seemed like a bit of a stretch. I just find Japanese dramas to be too over the top like they are trying to be animes, and it doesn't work.

    Cast: Good, I thought they all did a decent job.

    Music: It's ok. I was hummming it. So it was catchy.

    Rewatch: Yeah, I

    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 a rainey Saturday or an all night marathon!!

    I really loved this drama, including the ending, but the last two episodes were kind of slow.
  • oj1992 Feb 7, 2014
    I totally agree. It indeed has the Sex in the City aura.

    I loved this drama! I watched it all in one sitting! I teared up, laughed, my heart broke and I whaaaaaaat-ed a lot in this drama. This is my most favorite drama and beats the K-dramas that I've been watching lately.

    I haven't had a lot of luck with J-dramas. Usually I find them too over-the-top and somewhat unappealing but this one has changed my outlook. I LOVE IT. Even though I don't particularly like his character, Miura Haruma is just too adorable and provides such excellent eye candy. I like how everyone here is close to their character's age and pulls it off well.
    This drama is just what I needed after too many attempts with some other Asian dramas. Romance, comedy, all around cuteness, 11 episodes! It has those laugh-out-loud moments and can we remark on how casual they are on the touchier (literally) subjects like sex? It's really a refreshing drama for someone like me who was stuck in a k-drama lip touch slump for a long while. I'm at episode 9 but so far, I definitely recommend!

    i love Miura Haruma so badly, but here i did want for her to be with other guy at the end...i think they had more chemistry and i loved their bickering relationship and that how they understood each other...and she was more comfortable with him as well

    I loved this drama! was different than I expected but it was so sweet <3 I really enoyed it (and woah, I liked Haruma Miura before, but after this one I think I like him even more now haha)

    Did you ever watch Candy,Candy?Where you as flabbergasted and dissappointed about the ending between Terry and Candy, as I was? Well, that's a bit about how I felt about the ending for this drama.
    I liked it well enough. I just don't think I agree with the ending. I would give it a 7.5/10

    another fairy tale story for oba-chan (a horny guy 15 years younger) in real life for a guy a milf or cugar "in french" that's a one hit night and flee, if this is the best of 2013, it's a crappy year for dramas

    the kiss in the back of his sister, I will rape the director for doing this scene and for the sake to not redoing it again, those characters being ruined, from complexes to psycho ones
    sometimes the length of the series destroy every elements in it

    I didn't think she had chemistry with Hiroto. I love both male actors though!
