I want to see this only because there is Fukuda Saki, but the episode rating is extremely low for the first one : 4.1 !

Who cares if its low ratings as long as the story is good. I've been waiting for the subs hopefully it comes out this week.

Yeah, I don#t really give anything on ratings.
It has to be interesting to me not to others^^

well sure rating isn't everything, I don't look at it when I start an old series either..
But to be honest, the 1st eps didn't impress me, I expected more than that, it was just average, maybe with sub it'd be better (?)

Saki-chan is cute in this... and i hope they will provide her with room for character development.
I am looking forward to this, because until now I am not quite sure where the storyline will lead up to and this makes it kind of exciting.^^

Enjoyed the first one. Reminds me of a lighter side of Guren Onna. (Which I wish got subs. :-( )

1st episode was pretty good to me. I like supernatural stories, but I do hope that they do develop the characters a bit more. Hmm, I sometimes compare it with Ame to Yume no Ato Ni though since they are both about seeing ghosts. Though, this is more lighthearted. Will keep following the drama.

Ah...Ame to Yume no Ato Ni. That was the other ghost series... also enjoyable. I like these light hearted ghost ones...not as hard/scary as some ofthe big screen versions. You can watch them and not feel like you need to chase it with a comedy to change the mood back. :)

I'm watching this drama and I think
the Fukuda acts well although
I keep imagining her as the evil girl
in the jdorama LIFE
I still like how shes changed her image
in this drama.
Also the male lead and her have perfect chemistry on
and off se b^^d

Changed her image? I thought she was really cute and nice in Haikei, Chichiue-sama which was the first drama she did in 2007, and the one I watched before Life. I guess I had a harder time seeing her go from the good to evil character, but I really think she is going to be a good actress.

And it looks like ikemen is rendering the second episode, so it should be out soon.

Watched a few of the first episodes. Think I'm a fan :) Don't trust the ratings, it doesn't do it justice

Ah, okay, so it's Nishijima Takahiro in this drama, the same dude in 2Backka's "Namida" PV :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0B8e6p3Vy0! This song used to get stuck in my head! All. The. Time.

I like this drama so far. As of episode 2, it hasn't given away how it will end, so I'll definitely see it to the finish line. Ratings are utterly deceiving sometimes, so you gotta go with your gut when picking dramas to watch!

So far so good. I'll give anything a chance if it has a ghost in it. I think this one is cute.

Someone mentioned Ame to Yume. That's a fantastic drama. I can't see Ghost Friends being on that level. Ame is definitely a show to see.

I like this. They have avoided most of the tiresome cliches for this kind of thing, like taking itself too seriously. Who is the major babe playing Tachibana-sensei?.
