Cast & Credits
I learned a lot about college life and train culture in Japan. Maybe all the train talk and timetable reciting will be a turn off to some, but it's there. Also, the settings in the drama were really fabulous.
There was good character developments and plot. The arc between Koki and Chiaki was believable and fun. The side characters, Hanagata and Momoyama experience a lot of character growth which is always essential to a good drama, and it is done so, in a realistic manner.
Even though there is a decent amount of romance mixed in, the drama focuses on friendship. It shows the give and the take, and the support. It was really heartwarming.
This drama will slowly win you over. The ending was a bit predictable, but the journey to the last episode (as a viewer) was quite enjoyable.
