A heartwarming realistic story that will definitely touch your hearts. It's about the story of a preschool teacher with his preschool students. The twist is the main character or the teacher is a male unlike the usual stereotype female preschool teachers who handle the students. If you love watching dramas with a children's theme then you will love this drama. It will touch your heart per episode which is all about the interactions between teachers and their students. There would be emotional moments but it just fits the drama as a whole. I also like that it's light and enjoyable to watch because there is a comedic element. I could definitely re-watch this drama and I also love the music but of course because of Arashi.

This show is a comedic, heartwarming look into both the reality of male pre-school and kindergarten teachers and the hearts of children. I generally find that if you really enjoy children, chances are you will enjoy this show, which, in many ways, has the heart of a child encased in a more grown up world, just like the main character is a man with a child's heart in a man's body.

Because of the comedic aspect to the show and its use of young children, the show has some quirky acting that reads a bit like a manga at points. The music in most of those scenes also reinforces the physical comedy which is often being used. Some viewers who are more appreciative of very subtle acting used more in dramatic works may be turned off by the way that this is done in this show. I found that the acting was tailored in such a way that seemed to be most apt for the spirit of the show, but I am also not someone who studies actors intensely. Similarly, there are times that the script seems to be somewhat cheesy, but again, it fits well into the spirit of the show.

I would definitely recommend this show to others. I thought it was delightful. It has some wonderful bit parts, a bunch of adorable children, and it deals with issues which a lot of families will actually face alongside raising young children. I give it a pretty solid nine out of ten.

Seriously... right in the feels, Sakurai Sho-kun!!

Do not watch without tissues. This has to be one of his greatest performances, that I've seen anyway. And the cameos from the other Arashi members are hysterically well done! The children play out their roles well and it really has the feel of a working daycare. Definite must watch!!

Yoiko no mikata nos cuenta la historia de la llegada de un maestro de preescolar/asistente educativo masculino (interpretado por Sakurai Sho) a la guardería Himawari por pocos meses,(cosa que, es muy rara de ver, ya que este tipo de empleos es dominado por las mujeres).

La historia me encantó, pocas o casi nunca tenemos la oportunidad de ver una historia de este tipo de contenido, además de darle el toque masculino en este entorno es muy atractivo e intrigante de ver, y por lo mismo, Taiyo tiene dificultades desde el primer día que es aceptado como profesor tanto como con el resto de sus compañeras, niños y madres de los mismos y a veces sí me molestaba que fueran tan malos con Taiyo, porque pese a ser nuevo, no tenían que menospreciarlo y demás pésimos tratos que le daban, aunque afortunadamente tarde o temprano y con mucho esfuerzo las cosas se ponían de su lado hasta llegar al punto de ser respetado.

De las actuaciones, quiero enfatizar las actuaciones de los niños, que seguramente fue muy difícil haber trabajado con ellos pero transmitieron muy bien el sentimiento que les tocaba en cada escena y bueno, a un niño no puedes exigirle mucho en cuanto a ello, pero considero que fue adecuado.

Yoiko no mikata me gustó mucho, creo que Taiyo sensei es un personaje muy noble que siempre fue muy adecuado para el puesto que desempeñaba y siempre dispuesto ayudar a todos a su alrededor que hasta que terminé el drama me hizo extrañarlo, ya que pocas veces encuentras pocos personajes con tan buena energía y con un corazón muy puro. Es un drama cortito y seguramente disfrutarás de ver (ó terminas adorando u odiando a los niños hahaha), además de que por ahí hay un par de cameos de Arashi que te hacen sonreír si eres fan del grupo :)
