Started watching after I od'ed on DTR. X on Crunchy_till they wanted $$$ thanks to Damaholics I'm hooked again. An interesting series focused on the divide of the capitalistic & good ole boy HC systems in Japan (and anywhere else)vs a community (town doctor)HC. The actors are good, each episode focuses on a specific patient issue (very realistic issues (diabetes, cancer, abuse, mental issues etc.)accompanied with a swirling heavy backstory of lustful admin & his sirene complicit in taking down his nemesis town DTR & taking over the community clinic home of a naive yet caring nurse. Not real complicated stories, yet the layering of rural community HC, Japanese culture and non-traditional Dtr methods make this an interesting series. Would I re-watch? possibly a couple episodes - If you liked Dtr X - JDrama; give this a try, you will be entertained and YET saddened that HC systems globally are merely corporations focused on bottomline & not appropriate care of society.
