Tsutsumi Madoka is a university student who rarely expresses his feelings, nor is he likely to act on a whim. One night, he encounters an old man and a pink rabbit physically struggling. The pink rabbit seems surprised to find that Madoka can see him. He then introduces himself as Nabeshima, the Angel of Death and the ghost of an old man who died yesterday. Madoka has clearly seen things he wasn’t meant to! He decides to join Nabeshima, his colleague Yuzuko and senior Sachi Aguma to learn how to allow the spirits of dead people to possess his body in order to resolve their regrets, allowing them to be at peace. ~~ Adapted from the manga series "Omukae Desu" (お迎えデス。) by Meka Tanaka (田中メカ).

Ghosts and Bunnies!

This show is hilarious, thrilling, suspenseful, deep, genuine, and very unique. I do not understand how this series has only 9 episodes!

The cast was perfectly in sync with each other; comedic delivery and response(s) were on point, the romance levels were just right to fit within supernatural, suspense, mystery, thrilling, action, and comedy genres (and I'm sure a few more I'm not thinking of), the personalities of the actors themselves really came through in the characters they played which made the characters seem like real people!

I have to say, this show was very well made too. I seriously wish this show had a second season or even 12 episodes. The ending seemed to be lacking in a few areas and I was left with the "I want to see more; I want to know more about these people" type of feeling. This show is not one to be missed out on though! I definitely recommend this series!

I was pleasantly surprised by this drama. I started watching because it did sound interesting, about two people that can see ghosts helping shinigami with fulfilling the recently deceased's final wishes. I didn't have high hopes, though. The few supernatural J dramas I have seen have been underwhelming so you could say that I went in with this one with low expectations.

I wasn't impressed with the first couple of episodes, honestly. However, I could feel something was there. Though it seemed episodic, like most J dramas, there was always a continuous, underlying plot that was always there. The more it built, the better the drama became, until epsisode 8 which was wonderful! I was a little disappointed with the final episode and how things ended, which is why I docked .5 from my score, otherwise, it would have ended up being an 8.5.

The acting didn't wow me at first. This is the first drama I have seen with Fukushi Sota and at first I thought he was stiff and awkward. That impression totally changed as I continued to watch. What I had at first assumed was an awkward and stiff actor is actually the character of Madoka. In fact, I am pretty certain that the character has Asperger's Syndrome, for everything about his character traits points to it. It is never said in the drama, but as a parent of a child with Asperger's, I could recognize it. Even if the character isn't initially supposed to be that way, Fukushi does an absolute brilliant job in portraying him that way. I am being very serious here in my praise of him. I was deeply impressed.

I was impressed with all the actors except Tsuchiya Tao. I thought she acted like a cookie cutter type. I have seen dozens of J actresses that talk, walk, laugh and over act in the exact same fashion. She did not bring anything original to the drama acting wise though I didn't particularly dislike her character or anything like that. The character herself was ok, though I just could never see any romantic chemistry between her and Madoka at all. I could see they were friends and co workers, but I just never felt any real romance between them.

I recommend this to anyone looking for a cute and fun J drama to watch. It's also a drama that I could maybe see myself rewatching at some point, which is rare for me. (^_^)
