Take this drama lighter than Air

Its a adorable mini- drama. I ship Yukimaru and Yamane hard! Their personality match each other even though Yamane would say otherwise. This drama have some informative aspect in contrast to other Japanese dramas. It give a glimpse of what the inside of a real Japanese news room looks like. In this drama, I believe the actors and actresses captured how Japanese news are broadcast.
The character develop of some of the actors and actresses are smooth even with only 5 episodes. It's a nice drama to watch when I want avoid being emotionally pulled.

A Hidden Gem!

This was such a gem of a find! I don't understand why this was limited to only 5 episodes, unless there's a 2nd season? You could tell that the story was becoming cohesive by episode 4, and once you got midway to episode 5, you knew what was gonnna happen to our female lead. The truth about the farmer was actually surprising and refreshing! I loved the ending. It felt like an end to a season (rather than the end of the show).

This was a light comedy and had an anime-flair to it. If you rely on subtitles (like me), then the arrows and labels on people/things may become overwhelming on screen. **If you're not used to watching anime, you might be bothered with the bits of added narration and arrows to explain a scene.** It didn't bother me too much.

I definitely do NOT recommend this show to someone who is NEW to J-Dramas or to someone who is not an anime geek. Why? Because the style of humor is expressed using the same exaggerated motions and expressions in anime/manga. It's meant to be ridiculous, but may come off as being ridiculous. You know? ;) ;p

Also, it's obviously low-budget. I actually stopped watching a few minutes into episode 1 because of that; plus it seemed too informational and became almost like an educational program. But when I watched the preview shown on Netflix, I laughed out loud, so I went back to the episode looking forward to the scene from the preview. Next thing I knew, I was counting how many episodes I had left and got sad when I entered episode 5. :(

I just couldn't believe I had only one episode left and it was only 5 episodes that made up the show. :(

Considering that it's only 5 episodes with a 45 minute episode length, I would re-watch this show with a friend.

It seemed like the entire cast had fun energy and chemistry with each other! This was such a funny show. It's so quirky and silly. The actress cast for the lead was a great choice. I have no idea who she is. I think she carried a good balance playing an airhead without becoming irritating.

Fingers crossed for season 2!!

P.S.
Music Rating: there is no music in this series.
