Cast & Credits
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
