I gave this a 9 because the story and the characters are very close to my heart.

This is the love story of a virgin book editor Tsukishiro who has never been in love. She is assigned to an author (Kagaya) who can't write love stories. How they fall for each other and how they handle the situation is portrayed in this drama. Tsukishiro's colleague Mochizuki has a secret crush on Tsukishiro but have never had the courage to profess his love. He sees Kagaya as his potential competetor. Mochizuki is your sweet gentle second lead who takes care of the girl when she needs someone the most. Here the main lead Kagaya isn't that much of a jerk he seems to be, so you kind of ship Tsukishiro with both of them. My inclinination was more towards the main lead, but I do not mind if Tsukishiro ends up with Mochizuki either. Characters like Nanase isn't fully developed in the drama and I wish Nanase had more screen time.

This is one of the few dramas which I wish had more episodes than just 8 . I have neither watched the anime nor read the manga(I am planning to read the manga today.). So I cannot compare how true the live action is to the manga.

I liked the subtle way the love story developed in this drama. I need more of Tsukishiro and Kagaya. Completed all 8 episodes in just one go. That's not enough for me, going to read the manga and watch the anime now. That's what this drama does to you. It leaves you wanting for more.

Give this a try, it is a short sweet love story. There's definitely scope for a season 2.

This review may contain spoilers
Starting is good .The lead actress is struggling to achieve a place in their life and she got a chance to prove herself that she can do what for she was working since a long time .In this way entry of hero in her life who was shown as womanizer ,generally somebody hate to meet such man but she had shown no reaction and fall for him ,he changed for her but again avoid her in return told to her that he was not mr. Right of her life . Still she followed him ,pursued him though many time he disrespect her ..
He had a past because of that he can't love someone so he decided to live a life or pretend to live a life as people thought about him .. actually his character shown as a spoil one . At one scene he accepted her and something happened he went back to lady and said to her that she knew him better than anyone else so actually what he wants from his life god knows and at last he send a apology letter to her and after reading she ran to meet him and drama was over ..The ending was incomplete . Totally boring one not liked it.
