What made me decide to watch this is its title itself and when I saw that it's a light drama then I decided to watch it. I can't stand too serious heavy dramas especially long ones since it will make me feel bored. After watching this drama, I can really say that it's totally worth it! It's an entertaining drama with a lesson. It teaches you about the 'priceless' things in life but at the same time it's not too preachy to the point that it's irritating and that's what I love about this drama. It touches hearts but at the same time entertaining enough for you to stay and finish it.Of course, Kimura Takuya's acting here is superb and I do love Karina here as well. The rest of the actors did great even the villains. The story and character development is just fine for me and I will definitely watch this drama again whether alone or with groups of people. A realistic drama that's worth your time!:)

This dramas message really is PRICELESS. I enjoyed every hour of it. Though the story isn't that original - underdog story of a man who finds joy in the priceless items of this world, like friendship, loyalty or a rent for 500 yen - it's perfect in it's execution and pace. It give's you a warm and cuddly feeling every episode because it's strongest point is the light hearted relationship between the characters. And there is one theme I really love - different people that form a family by going through hardship and adventures. I remembered how awesome japanese are at forming friendship bonds and this drama does it in a really cute way. A MUST for every Kimura Takuya fan who loves chemistry (I do).

Story 9/10 - Because I think it's not a new story and I still did not see the ending I give it a 9. But certainly it is easy to watch for a full hour, well paced and with an awesome message behind it. The japanese like their stable jobs and a little while back it was normal that a company would employ people for their lifetime. But since recessions struck this country hard "restructuring" became a synonym for angst. Kimura playing a homeless guy with a bright personality might give people hope to not give up completely after falling into poverty (people over there tend to do stuff like suicide). It's a story that gives hope through trust and friendship - still an all-time favorite. Throughout the series there is always the same question coming up - do we value what we have? Didn't money, greed and comfort zones destroy our joy in the simple and priceless things of life? You can checkout yourself - how much are you able to handle? When do you surrender to selfishness?

Acting 10/10 - well what should I say? It's Kimutaku. That guy is a natural at comedy. The rest of the cast is just as awesome with Karina (Nikaido) and Nikai Kiichi (Moai) or Fujiki Naohito (president of miracle electronics). Can't find any miscast - all are really great at what they are doing.

Music 9/10 - Who doesn't like the rolling stones? Come on^^ I jumped through my room when that came in the ending. again. and again. Well the rest is not that special (sounds like a pirate movie) but totally solid stuff.

I would watch it again. Really. And Overall - 9/10 - really a great drama.
