This drama is pretty straight forward, there aren't any twists and turns so if you're hoping for anything along those lines, you won't find them. However, considering it is a drama based on the rescue services, it provides some insight into just how demanding and life threatening their job is and above all just how precious their own lives as well as the victims' lives are not only for their own sakes but for their families and loved ones.

The lead character definitely has immense determination and will power, something that becomes evident immediately in the first episode. To me, it is something to be admired and I found it rather inspiring.

As the episodes progress you're able to see just how much they all grow, bond and leads to several tears along the way. I couldn't help but shed some tears, some parts really were heart touching and heartbreaking plus the music was perfect. The acting may not have been top notch all the time, but it was pretty darn good nonetheless. Overall, if you enjoy watching fast paced action dramas, you should give this one at least a try.

Oh and beware of shouting! There is a hell of a lot of it in every SINGLE episode! xD

Is this a type of drama that is will not be attractive to most people? Yes. Is it about a romance? No. Is there angst moments between a male and female? No. What this drama is about is that it focuses on the sacrifices that a group of rescue workers in Yokohama Japan are willing to do to save others. You will laugh, cry (okay, a lot of crying) but most of all you will come away with a lot of respect for the men and women in this field who are willing to do ANYTHING to save every last soul in a disaster! Well made drama!!
