Story: If you have read the manga, then you know there are a lot of mismatches from the actual storyline of the manga to the storyline of this drama. Changes were done and I understand they were necessary, after all, it was hard to turn 36 volumes (241 chapters) of manga and not leave anything behind. However, I think they made a good storyline, even if in a different order than the original.
- Overall 8
- Story 7
- Acting/Cast 9
- Music 7
- Rewatch Value 5
Acting/Cast. I mostly loved everyone's acting and the casting choices. I think that Matsumoto Jun was an amazing Domyouji (although no one will ever master that hairstyle as he does) and Inoue was good too. I have only one complaint in this department and that is of the way Yuki and Nishikado are
portrayed. If you read the manga, you can see that Nishikado is always polite and nice to Yuki (despite all the complications between them) and you also see that Yuki isn't the clingy, desesperate girl that you see on the final episodes of this drama. Besides those two characters, I like the acting and the casting choice.
Music: I normally don't pay much attention to the songs, but I noticed that in this particular drama they helped enhance the feelings of each scene.
Rewatch value: I don't like rewatching things unless they are just..... yeah. So I couldn't give it more than a 5, and that's me loving this story very much. I think I will rewatch this if I feel like I'm really missing Tsukushi and Domyouji (but I'll probably read the manga then watch the drama).
Overall: Good adaptation, although they could have not changed the sequence of order of the scenes like they did. I loved it, truth be told, but nothing can beat the manga.
