Shiro has died temporarily but is told by a mysterious person called "Guardian" that he can do a "homestay" i.e. his soul to reside in another dead person's body so as to find the reason for the latter's death. However, Shiro has to do this within 100 days or else his true form will be exposed and he will die for real. As such, Shiro enters the body of another dead high school student Kobayashi Makoto and tries to investigate his death with Makoto's childhood friend Fujieda Akira and his senior Takasaka Mitsuki who Makoto was in love with.

Put things in to perspective, and pretty good, but not very entertaining and hard to rate.

I am confused, very confused... not so much about the movie itself, it is pretty straight forward though it does have some interesting twists and turns pretty good cinematography for a J movie, it is not too hard to follow the story-line. So why am i confused? Well I just do not know how I feel about the message in this movie, and about how they portray this issue. Part of me thinks that it has a really interesting take on this that we rarely see. It is not like they over simplify the issue in hand or something like that, I find myself liking and disliking it at once... and wanting them to dig deeper yet make it simpler at the same time. Yes I am contradicting myself here (that is my point).

What I do like is the people here, the side stories and the side characters seem to have made for a better story than the main one. The characters are relatable, not detestable, most are actually pretty sweet. Some may need a lesson or to in communication but the story would be pretty dull if everybody was perfect.

The entertainment value is not very high, but there are some scenes that may blow your mind and the quality to the production and story are high. And it does help put things in to perspective... In a lot of more or less subtle ways...

Honestly I could have rated this anything between a 6 and a 10 depending on what I focus on and the mood I am in.

It's Depends on your perspective on how you relate to it

I love that this drama will help you think right off the bat because of it's straightforward approach, but i think that the pacing is too fast at first. Like being interviewed immediately by an unknown person or entity.(but i guess it's necessary for a plot)
Most of the scene is from thai movie with the same title name but they change the characters and the sequence of scenes. Shiro is so jolly and completely different from Makoto which is perfect and nicely as expected from Nagao kento 1st movie debut as lead.
Lastly i hope that this drama will not encourage viewers to view life after watching this drama negatively. It's just that Makoto is just to overwhelmed by too much expectations or trials.
i hope that they learn that this is continuous daily fight until we end our longterm Homestay in a normal way of treating it.
