A group of university students who belong to the same tennis club, Shino Yuta, Sakurada Miki, Sasaki Rinka, Takano Natsu, Fueki Mana, Tachibana Satsuki and Sakurada Wataru, go on a graduation trip to a cottage in the mountains in winter. Although the seven members seem to be good friends, each of them actually has secrets which they cannot tell anyone about; hidden feelings of love and jealousy. Yuta, the cool and brilliant president of the club, is attracted to the sociable and trusting Miki, and intends to tell her about his feelings on this trip, but things do not work out the way he wants. Miki is dating Yuta’s good friend, the free-spirited Natsu and is so into him that she is blind to her surroundings. The seven friends have conflicting positions and when love starts to go down the tubes, a murder occurs like a bolt from the blue. Amid the fear and doubt, hidden emotions begin to come into the open through exchanges which probe each other’s intentions.
Cast & Credits
Well, the first episode was good so i gave it a "go" I got hooked so I stayed watching. At first, I only watched this for Renn (Since I got a massive crush on him after re-watching switch girl but this really isn't important so scratch this part of my review lol) I was actually rooting for him even though he seemed like the bad guy of the story. BUT HELL I WAS WRONG. I got really mad at him lol That means the acting was SUPERB! The progress of the story was great. It kept revealing stuff that made me want to watch more. The characters was awesome. Their acting was perf. Anyways I wasn't really satisfied with the ending but I guess that's part of the drama. Thumbs up
It was a bit cliche in terms of plot at the start but not in an unenjoyable way. The cast is very very good and the music is by far the best thing about the drama. The tension and the ambiguity of the character motivations and such was really well executed in the first few episodes. The tension around the creepy murderer in the forest and all the friend drama going on built me up for a good story that never happened!
The drama in and of itself was executed very well, but was quickly forgotten in the next episode or simply swept aside to make room for some new and more ridiculous plot point. There was a lot of building up ideas and motivations for them to simply become irrelevant or easily dismissed. While the acting was great, it was very hard to connect with the characters and their personalities, because they weren't very well developed and weren't allowed to be shown enough before stuff started going down. That made it very hard for me personally to feel connected to anyone properly and made a lot of the story and their troubles feel flat and overdramatic.
By far the worst part about this drama is the ending. It gets completely ridiculous in the last 2 episodes and a lot of the bigger things that have been teased and built up from the start begin to fall flat. The climax of the drama wasn't something I predicted, but the reasoning behind it felt silly and forced, just to use a plot twist for the sake of it. The way all the characters act in the last episode as well is completely ridiculous to me, because I have a very hard time believing that anyone could act like that.
The good points about this drama are definitely the music and the acting. The cast is very good and despite the way the plot falls to pieces, they hold up very well and all deliver very good and emotional performances. The music is by far the best part, in my opinion, however. It's a brilliant score that holds the tension and adds to the feel of the drama. It's all very well preformed and really enjoyable to listen to. The way the drama is shot it also very good and the use of shadows and different camera angles made it nice to watch, even if I felt the plot was terrible at best.
It was enjoyable in it's own small ways, but I would suggest passing on Lost Days unless you're a really hardcore fan of one of the actors involved. You won't be disappointed by their performance but I think the flakey plot and melodrama is poorly executed and isn't very enjoyable to watch. I would suggest giving the soundtrack, or at the very least the opening, a listen however because it is truly stellar.
