I will start by saying I weirdly enjoyed this drama. Maybe the reason is that it's rare to see a J-drama revolve around sex. Also you don't see a lot of kissing in J-dramas and this one has quite a bit of touchy kissy adult content. The cast was beautiful but there could be improvements in the acting particularly Nakamura Rissa. I enjoyed the theme song and I want it on my play list.

Now onto the not so good. The story and character development were the main problems. The lead character Terada-san's indecisiveness got on my nerves. Hongyo-san also annoyed me with his hopelessness and dependency on everyone around him. I said kimochi warui 気持ち悪い several times when he was on screen and especially with his interactions with Terada when they were alone. I was perplexed as to why she would agree to enter into this type of relationship with him given the back story of their relationship in Jr high. You felt used back then so you're going to sign yourself up to be used again now. HUH?! I also thought Hase-san was creepy in his interactions with Terada. His reasons for his proposal are absurd. And Kuritani only wanted Terada around because she cooked and cleaned. There is a thin line between being/feeling needed by others and being used and Terada-san seems like a woman with low self-esteem who trying to find herself by allowing every other character on the show to use her. It's hard to root for her when I want to shake her so badly and yell "WTF are you doing with yourself?!" Though the characters worked out their feelings by the end I don't feel like anything was resolved or improved on. At the end I just asked myself WTF did I just binge? What was the point of this?
