Despite a reputation as a brusque and ill-mannered man, Tottori Kenichi, a.k.a. “Dolittle” is also a brilliant veterinarian with the habit of asserting that “Veterinary practice is a business.” Outwardly, he is quick to excoriate pet owners for their utter lack of understanding and careless treatment of their pets but invariably finds himself rescuing not only the “voiceless animals” whose pain and anguish he deeply understands, but even heals the spiritual afflictions of their owners. The result is a moving drama that brings into bold relief the issues that pet owners and veterinarians face and evoking the sacred importance of life.

I really liked this drama,because of the acting. Shun and Hiroki are a set of awesome actors! I really expected it to be like a Dr. Dolittle where he is litterally talking to the animals, but it wasnt like that at all. This is a really sweet story about a man who really cold on the outside but soft on the inside, how that man really cares for animals but not so much for people. Shun did such a great job!!

This is a rather serious drama, with animal surgery and a lot of animal topics that I didnt even know exsisted. Not much comedy, and a slight ( and I mean slight) bit of unrequited romance/ longing. Some of the major themes were: the little man fighting the big company, taking responsibility for your own life, compassion, and fighting your fears. I didnt like the ending because I wanted some people to get together (but oh well).

This drama was unexpectedly good for several reasons which I myself cannot believe when I have finally finished the series.

Back in 2012 I initially chose this drama due to Inoue Mao just because she's my bias but after watching the first episode, I felt disappointed because I can't seem to appreciate it for what it is-a typical Renzoku drama that depicts human life and the love for animals. I was not able to enjoy the series for two major reasons: It wasn't a Rom- com and I had no Pet , adding to this was the fact that I wasn't really that attached with animals.

Then 2013 came and I happen to be in costudy of a cross breed pit bull/american bull dog. That's when I attempted to watch the drama again and finally changed my opinion about it.

The thing I liked most about this show was the main characters. Oguri Shun as Dr. Totori was kind of awesome. He may have that rotten-eccentric personality, but he is the best vet in the story and on top of that he has so much insight as a person. Inoue Mao's character in here was sort of a dumb novice who was too kind and too emotional. Although her character is like this, I still admired her naivety to people's true intentions and compassion to animals. Then there is Hiroki Narimiya as the charismatic vet who could not perform a surgery even if his life depended on it due to a previous trauma. His character adds color to the two main characters. I thought he was the antagonist in the story but I was wrong. There is a good history between his character and Oguri Shun's.

Music wise it wasn't really that memorable, but it has that slight nostalgia in me whenever I hear the sound track. It sort of reminds me of peaceful moments or happy beginnings.

I may not re-watch this show again but I am definitely recommending it to animal lovers of all sorts.
