I really enjoy this drama. Tho' i wish they would show Chiaki giving her the necklace at the Garden.
I think it would've been anticlimactic, after kissing her in the garden... :)
Well, how about giving her the necklace first, perhaps in a clumsy sort of Chiaki way ... then kiss? 8)

It's been a while since I like a drama so much!!! There's a great cast, classical music, and funny moments.
