Shida Mirai is hilarious. I know it's pretty blunt humor, but that's intentional, and it works for me. Just a fun show. And as ZoddGuts says, I know I should hate Yamada Yuu's character, but I just can't. Her selfishness and luck are real comedy.

I haven't seen the film (I guess I'll have to, now), but I thought Mizusawa Elena was just outstanding as Mika in that initial episode. I'm not sure if it was acting or not, but she conveyed such a vivid sense of the character's youth, uncertainty and emotional fragility. Very, very real, to me.

I can understand how some people might not like this show. But perhaps 8th sin just wanted a different approach to this topic: a less young-seeming heroine, a more "realistic" or harsher plot. That's fine, but it is not a reason to condemn the whole drama, or to condemn Shida Mirai's acting. It is j...

Final episode. Yes, Shida Mirai was miraculous, as was Tanaka Misako as her mother. What others have said about the acting is all true. Satoshi's mother will come around, I think. I hope he inherits her determination. She was shown at the end going door to door selling, and her former employee bowed...

Episode 10 was wonderful! The tears flowing from my eyes tell me so. Yes, my emotions were manipulated. But I'll let them do it again and again if I get these feelings in return. I think one more episode is enough to make a good ending. They won't necessarily have to cram to much into the "last thre...

Yes, Kenta was excellent in ep9. Although all through one scene, I kept saying: get that kid out of the room now! But he was nothing compared to how absolutely amazing the 13-year-old Shida Mirai was. Unbelievable. How does she do it?

Yes, I think Satoshi's mother is okay. Not that I'd want to get anywhere near a person like that, but she has good reasons for what she is doing. Even in ep8, which is another great one. I think both she and the reporter must eventually have the veils fall from their eyes and accept the love between...

What a great show. Shidai Mirai is apparently not even 14 herself yet, and she can act this part so well. Wow. I was wondering if part of the idea of this show is to encourage Japanese to have more babies, which will be necessary if their population is not to shrink quickly over the next few decades...
