Five seconds into the first episode and I was "this is my favorite 2017 drama". Not because of the setting, not because of some cute  actor... no, the first line had already hooked me. Never happened to me before. I wish I was more eloquent in English, to describe how much I love this drama. Every second of it.

For people who want eye-candy, there is the Shoujo Prince and two Tokusatsu heroes... but their pretty faces can't beat the talent of the veteran actor Yakusho Koji.  His gentle smile, his determination to achieve his goals, his  tears of frustration, of happiness. President Miyazawa, who loved his little company, his employees... always wearing his blue hanten. This man impressed me so much I was constantly posting about him.

Short version of my review: this drama reminded a lot of the anime "Haikyuu", in spirit.

Real rating: 100/10... thank you to yamazaki-kento dot com for subbing this amazing drama <3

[WARNING: the rating and review I give have the possibility to be subjective due to my preference for the genres, scenes or casts]

I watched this first for Yamaken and Ryoma, but it turns out that they're not the lead actors or the lead plot. Well, they did took the important part, but not the prime important part (what did I blabbered about? XD). Miyazawa Koichi's face is slightly similar to my big boss at the office, I've got shock while watch the first episode (^o^) The pace is a little bit slow and the topic is quite serious, maybe some of you will find it a little bit boring ... well, sometimes me too XD

As for the story, this drama will give you the new perspective of "not give up". In this movie, you will see how the people at Kohazeya and even Mogi to not giving up on their dreams even though they must face a lot of obstacles or a lot of negative behavior from other people (and from the own son). But as Miyazawa said, "The time when you truly lost is when you give up on a fight." and that sentence is right, you'll get a miracle if you don't give up.
