I thought this would just be a funny story of a nerdy guy trying to win his office crush, but it turned out to be a lot more. For starters, it got really complicated and exciting. It made me watch several episodes back to back. It was really funny, but it wasn't as shallow as I expected it to be. Surprisingly, there was a lot of growth, love, forgiveness, and redemption seen in almost all of the characters. I was really happy with the ending and the character development, and the drama itself was a lot of fun. So if you're in the mood for something funny, and you have the patience to watch a character grow then I would recommend it to you.

i managed to watch Boys on the run til the very end.
Conclusion:
- i still dislike Maruyama. gomen. there are moments when i think wow he's actually kakkoi, but these moments are SO FEW. really.
- i LOVE Saito Takumi. he's HOT, talented, has luscious lips... wow.
- UEDA UEDA UEDA UEDA UEDA MOOOORE. really. i started watching this because of him, and HE GETS LIKE ONLY 4 MINUTES IN EVERY EPISODE. FOOUUR. that's-NOT-ENOUGH. i LOVE him like this badass, rude, i-don't-give-a-rat's ass-about-you character and honestly, his acting is not as bad as i expected.
- aaand another drama, where the main girl wasn't annoying as hell.
I'm not going to watch this drama again, but hmm. it's a good one-time-only drama. makes you laugh (sometimes disgusted...) and if you like Maruyama, you'll have a great time.
