Typical "iyashikei" ^__-

Watching this "Pension Metsä", I couldn't help but:

a) compare this with "Pension Koi wa Momoiro", due to the "Pension" in the title, but that's, like, the only thing they share: that one was plainly terrible, while this one is pretty good! ^___-

b) think about Finland ^_^;...Why? Well, not only is "Metsä" a Finnish word (meaning "woods, forest"), but also, this short dorama has the same FL as the movie "Kamome Shokudou" aka "Kamome Diner" (Kobayashi Satomi) and in the cast there's also another actress who was in that movie too (Motai Masako)...oh, and in case you haven't watched that movie, well, it's set and filmed in Helsinki, Finland ^__-

Despite the Finnish reference, this series is as Japanese as they come, being a typical example of the "iyashikei" genre (quoting from Wikipedia: "...a genre specific to Japanese works [...]. It is a sub-genre of slice of life, portraying characters living out peaceful lives in calming environments, and is intended to have a healing effect on the audience...").
If you're in for a soothing, relaxing viewing experience, conveying some simple yet meaningful messages, well, you might like this...I did, and I would've given it a higher grade, hadn't it been for the fact that I found the last two episodes weaker than the rest.
Nice music, particularly the ending credits song.
