What's so funny about the drama is that Fukada Kyoko's lack of acting made Marie's character funny and somewhat adorable. Marie and Magaki Shugetsu were the two hateful characters in this drama, and the actress who played Shugetsu was so skillful that Shugetsu was pretty annoying through the end. Li...

I also loved this song, so I went on Jazztronik's website.
Looks like Jazztronik is a music composer, and I couldn't figure out
if they've made an album with the singer of the song.
I'd love to get one if they did. Does anybody know anything about it?
I'd appreciate any information.

Haha, I guess I wasn't the only one who thought about Dexter, especially at the
last scene on the first episode. :P
Dexter is my favorite show.

Although Dexter is at a different level, I like Sakai's acting. He's convincing.
Oh, and Kaga Takeshi.

Even though it was sad, I wanted them to stay together no matter what, but I LOVE the realistic ending more. It is just so much more heart breaking but still so positive.

This is comedy, and supposed to be super stupid. From Japanese point of view, every joke is hilarious and the timing of jokes are just perfect. The way they use songs of Southern All Stars on both one and two episodes are so spot on. It's so silly to see how people are trying to analyze acting skill...

What she did was unforgivable, but what ep08 showed was also the reality of Japan, and the society is also partially to be blamed as she said at the scene with Nao.

In episode 8: The scene at 29:10 caught my attention. It showed Hitomi spotting a guy looking like her dead husband coming out from his once-frequented restaurant with another family. For a second, I thought Hitomi was hallucinating, but it seemed that Rena noticed them too. So it brings the questi...

I think she is a bit mental too. How can she did what she did to Reima and treat it like she's done no wrong? Let's just remember the happy times?

As for Nao's foster mother's decision to...(Don't read if you haven't watched ep06) disown Nao, it's understandable. She did to protect her other two daughters.
