Extremely solid story. Beautiful script, great acting & very unusual score. This felt completely different from the usual JDramas I've seen before. Completely underrated if you ask me! Seriously; I hadn't seen something this good in a long time!

The only reason it doesn't get a higher rating is I feel the ending is a bit too abrupt as it literally just ends which sort of threw me off. But if you can look past that it really is worth watching.

In comparison it's Korean equivalent does not match up at all! If you were to pick one I'd say start with this version first.

The story was great, it involves high school, bullying and a lot of ass-kicking BUT I felt that the acting from the main character (Kamishiro Yu) could be much better sometime I could feel like he was really acting and made it hard for me to get into the drama...
A big downside was the length sadly it only has 13 episodes of 30 minutes each and because of that the ending seemed a little rushed.
