2. As a fan of Miki, I'd really like to know about that vision of Miki teaching a class that Jin saw in the ending of Season 1. Was that another AU, NOT the world where Miki was Jin's girlfriend NOR it was the world where Miki's surname is Tachibana? In the last episode of Season 2, Miki Tachibana ...

Regarding Kaneda: I think in the scene where he was eating by himself, just confirms what Kuwano realized... that Kaneda was similar to Kuwano in some ways... single, looking for something, but valuing his own time and space at the same time. And whats wrong with a guy eating by himself anyways??

The teacher is played by Kashii Yu, who was born in 1987... so she's only 19 years old? That makes her about as old as students...

I feel that Long Vacation is going to end up as one of the "classics" of Japanese dramas.

It is not the first drama I watched, but it is one of my favorites. A fine example of the "Golden Era" of Japanese dramas. Another one that falls into that same category is "Virgin Road."
