There wasn't a single character in this drama that was one-dimensional, each and every character you were introduced had a unique aspect to them. It's rare to find dramas in which characters have strong individualism and consistency with their traits and personality. The writers gave a nice flow to the plot.

You could understand Koichi's frustrations and struggles as he tries to live up to his dream of becoming an equal with "geniuses" like Akari and Eren.

Honestly though I love it when there is an atypical female lead. It's what keeps me watching dramas. But sadly they are rare to find among typical "damsels in distress". But Eren was charismatic, talented, and strong. It's become so mainstream for the female lead to rely on the male lead, that actually seeing an independent character like Eren was a decent surprise. Ikeda Elaiza is now definitely gonna be an actress I am following.

The music and cinematography are not able to be explained and comprehended with words, you have to go see it for yourself. The music was what kept me watching till the very last second, it adds an atmosphere to every scene and character. Like just go watch the damn drama and you'll know what I mean.

I don't know what I am gonna watch now after this drama. It's another drama withdrawal time after Todome no Kiss.

Overall, this is an okay drama targeting younger audience with up-to-date production style featuring pretty faces as the main casts ... The story has essence in it as it is based on a real-life art directer written web manga, but somehow the script plus execution of the drama was not enough to make me feel inspired... It's closed but not there yet!!

Firstly, the good things:
1. Nice production style plus pretty faces
2. Quite well in explaining how a creative department in advertisement company is operated, as well as the people around it
3. Tried to showcase different views in carrier's goal as well as different characters of people when doing work and the stories behinds it...somehow this part remind me a bit of Juuhan Shuttai
4. I love the OP and ED songs

However, the bad things are:
1. BAD ARTWORK, BAD ARTWORK, BAD ARTWORK!!! Despite the drama is about ART, the featured artworks are mostly mediocre....this is one major drawback of this drama and it keeps bothering me to be honest...LoL
2. Acting-wise, the actors have less screen time in doing their arts. Those from the school days are not clearly shown. The recent days projects are barely shown on how they actually doing it... We never even have chance to see Eren do a decent painting....and the way she hold brushes unconvincing as hell...
3. Not only we don't see Eren do decent painting, we don't even see any masterpieces that make her deserved to be called genius...LoL
4. During the first encounter of Koichi and Eren, Koichi inspired by Eren's "graffiti" and called her genius....where did he get that from?? The art featured in the drama was not even closed to graffiti let alone genius...Yes I've seen the one used in manga, which is million times better
5. The ending has potential to come strong, but it was a meh...
