Cast & Credits
The story is phenomenal. I highly recommend it for anyone that is a fan of Japanese author Murakami, in particular his work "Wind Up Bird Chronicle". I feel that the tone of the series is not really fully appreciated until about the second or third episode. I found my self in tears about four times through out the series, primarily when the young high schooler, Niko would do a small monologue. Similar to the "snap shot" transitions and child narrations of Suicide Circle(Suicide Club), Niko give an untainted and far from cynical view of the fast past loveless world around her.
The acting in this series is top notch. Some characters who are only present for an episode perform at their highest to make a lasting impression on the viewer, and thus building another layer to the story and making the final episode more fulfilling, and heart breaking.
The music honestly didn't play to much in this series. It didn't need to.
Overall an amazing series that is a real anthropological view of Japanese culture and society from a first hand viewer. Definitely re-watchable, and definitely one hell of series.
The best thing about this drama is the cast. The two main leads are hilarious. The supporting cast is also great, including the guests. The story is not that great since it differs from episode to episode, so your mileage may vary.
Overall, I would check this out of you are a fan of either the main leads. Otherwise, as much as I love this drama, you might not like it due to it's quirkiness, and pacing issues down in the later episodes.
