Mitsuhiko Amano is a 46-year-old salaryman who has just been laid off by his company. On top of that, his wife has told him that she wants a divorce and that their daughter is going with her because she just can't stand even to look at her father. His life in crumbles, and he visits a soapland... but before being able to actually do anything there, he slips, seriously hits his head and loses consciousness. As he opens up his eyes again, he recognizes his high-school classroom, a professor, and his classmates (among them, his future wife, Sachiko). At first, he thinks that it's his life flashing before his eyes just before death, but then he realizes that he's actually back in 1986, in his 16-year-old body! Does this mean he'll have another chance? What will he do now? Will he muster up the courage to talk to Satsuki (the classroom's beauty he used to have a secret crush on) this time? Will he change his life? ~~ Adapted from the manga “High Posi” by Takashi Kira. Edit Translation

While the theme is cliche, High Position has a calm vibe with straightforward plot. Nothing extraordinary with a bit slow overall pacing, but just right for midnight drama slot in my opinion. All characters are also likeable and without knowing you will get hooked with its simple story-line.

The comedy however was light and not enough to make you ROFL, but the situations presented will make you smile throughout the series. I found the last 4 episodes were the most engaging and I liked at how it was wrapped in final episode.

High Position also has lots of 80's reference, from fashion, pop-culture, technology and lifestyle. Therefore someone who have lived during this time may find it kind of nostalgic too.

Hidden gem! ^____^

Maybe it's because I'm 46 and single myself (although, in my case, not because I got divorced, LOL). And maybe it's because of the uncanny resemblance between the ML's high-school crush and my high-school crush of 30 years ago (ok, "mine" was blonde, blue-eyed and freckled, but everything else - body figure, shape of the face, cheeckbones, ears, nose, profile, hairstyle, hands, character etc. - was strikingly similar). And maybe (and more seriously) it's because, let's be honest - who wouldn't want to have a second chance at youth with the consciousness and experience of an adult (only the consciousness, therefore minus the beer-belly and the receding hairline, LOL)?
Whatever the reason, I was hooked right away and this dorama left a huge impression on me (I'm not ashamed to admit that by the end my eyes were wet!).
A simple yet not shallow premise, nicely developed throughout the series and masterfully wrapped up in the last episodes. At times I laughed, and at times I was moved. Huge congrats to the author(s)!
The cast (although, I'll shamefully admit, mostly unknown to me) did a great job too (with only one notable exception, that is the 16 y.o. version of the ML's wife - I found that idol-turned-actress waaaaaay below par, sorry - one more example of the nefarious influence of the idol-system on acting quality...but that's another story).
The music was also a very nice element, needless to say, and so were the 80's references!
All in all, a perfect 10 as far as I'm concerned! Hidden gem! ^___-
