DMAT, the acronym for the "Disaster Medical Assistance Team", was first established in 2004. For the past 10 years, the team has been providing on-site emergency assistance at disaster-hit areas. Yakumo Hibiki was an surgeon at the Arisukawa General Hospital's Emergency Unit, but due to a mistake involving his sister Haruko, he has since been transferred to the internal medicine unit. One day, the hospital Director, Dr. Isesaki Katsuichi, requests for Hibiki to move to DMAT. His childhood friend, Nurse Yoshioka Rin, encourages him to take up the role, but upon joining the team, Hibiki finds his new colleagues aloof and a little eccentric. His first assignment is to a pile-up accident in a road tunnel, and he finds himself working against time to provide medical treatment to those who require immediate attention. Edit Translation

So, the story is about a doctor who failed to save her sister immediately and result on making her in vegetative state. From that day onward he's getting scared to examine emergency patients until he's forced to join Dr. DMAT or Disaster Medical Assistance Team. At first he's just becoming a nuisance as he couldn't make any calm decision on spot or being too emotional that could endanger more people in the disastrous area. But he slowly learn by experiences and a lot of scoldings that in accident site he needs to calmly give a priority to lives that will be able to be saved and which lives need to be left.

Why i love this drama? bcuz i think that the lead character is really interesting, being too emotional, coward, and crybaby at first onto a doctor that excels on saving people with a limited equipment and to be able to calmly choose life even his important ones.
there are some ironic situations that will pierce your heart on some eps and make you scream whyyyy?? but that is something that likely happen in real life.

so i would really recommend it if you like life-saving stories or if you like to see how much a character could grow after he encounter many field experiences.

the actings are not mind blowing but not bad either. and i think the music fits the story especially the instrument.

Dr DMAT is a story about a team of medical staff members called the 'Disaster Medical Assistant Team' or DMAT for short.
They, as you can guess by the name, go out to disaster/accident sites and save as many lives as they can. They are always short on supplies and have to improvise a lot in a chaotic and stressful environment.

Quite similar to Code Blue in that sense, comparing to other medical dramas where the setting is mostly at the hospital.

Story:
I really liked the story. The cases are always different and it's realistic in a sense that not all patients survive. Some scenes can be a bit slow but when they arrive at the site you have barely time to blink.

I also like that it's not predictable on what's going to happen. Is the person going to survive?? What choices will the characters make?? You will just have to watch and see.

The thing I would have wanted more of would be more accident per episode, especially at the end. Not that it was boring at the end but they had build it up really well and I would of liked to see a bit more before they went to the last site at the last episode, but other than that, it was great.

Acting/Cast:
The acting is really good and really believable. The cast know exactly what their doing to make their character justice.

Yakumo Hibiki, the main character, has a really smooth character development from being a newbie and only being in the way of DMAT to being the one controlling everything.

Music:
The music is great, even though there isn't one that really stood out, it really helped to enhance the scenes to the max.

Re-watch:
A series will always lose a bit of it's shine after the first watch in my opinion, but since this one is a, that I like to call, one case/episode drama (Which most police/medical dramas are), it has a higher
re-watch value rather than a story that build every episode before coming to the conclusion drama where the magic is in not knowing until the end.

Overall:
It's one of the better Jdramas that I've seen and I could definitely see myself watch this again in the future.
