I'll start first (and yes I intend to do another post right after the top post to keep the 1st post clean. don't flame me for not editing my post :)

It's so much fun to watch Matsuda Shota play as both Shirota and as Sabashima. :D
I think when Matsuda acted as Shirota, he didnt play him as such a mundane and nerdy guy Takahashi (the actor who plays the yakuza role) made him out to be. but maybe it's just b/c i'm such a Matsuda Shota fangirl who think whatever role he plays looks interesting. :P

So while they probably wont switch bodies until near the end of the series, I'd totally have no problem if things go unexpected and they switch bodies midway into the series. :D :D

Matsuda Shota's Shirota is really cute esp in specs.

but let's not turn this thread into just a spazz place for fangirls (that is me), I'll post a simple question

What's stopping Sabashima to tell his wife about body-swapping? Why is he not telling her?

I just started 3 episodes today. It was surprisingly funny and entertaining. 3 eps and this drama becomes my 3rd rank for this summer season with Soredemo and IS taking 1st and 2nd respectively. Oh, I have to mention that I find it rather boring before the swapping taking place. After that it was a smooth ride.

Japanese drama have many production that using languages other than Japanese. I think this is a first to Spanish, rite? that guy accent at the beginning is quite funny.

After seeing ep 5 I have to rank it as my second favorite series at the moment. First being Soredemo and third being Gou. It's amazing how much fun this series exhumes :D The whole body swap thingy has been done so many times, but it still works if done right! I loved Ayumi in ep. 5. Glad she got a chance to shine :-) I never really liked Matsuda, but have to revise my opinion completely.
It was great to see him try to emulate Shirota's manners in ep 5, but gradually returning to the Sabashima ways

Love this series to bits! xD Shota is really awesome. I wonder if the kids will recognize Sabashima in his own body in the end, though I secretly hope they won't return to normal lol

She did not play in any drama yet (her japanese wiki listed 2 comercial, Don Quixote ep7 and Ouran Host club ep7)

One of the better dramas this season. Nice twist on the switching bodies story, and well written and acted. Flows well for a silly, non-realistic drama, and storylines work well each eps. Catchy sort of watch.

I think it was quite a good drama, propably the best of this season...though this doesn't mean much because this season was rather weak.
The biggest letdown is, that there wasn't more of a "main" arc. Still, it was quite funny, but the ending seems to rushed to mee. The change back in each others person was so squeezed in...10 minutes more epilogue would've been nice. Ah, and the change of the other two guys at the end was hilarious. :)
Over all, I think it earned a 6,5/10.

i loved this series! i wasn't expecting much from this cliche genre but it was pretty funny hahaa. matsuda's a good actor as always! i liked the good msg it conveyed and the humor, but sometimes i thought the situations were a bit too idealized. i mean it's not easy for bad parents to change their ways... but i guess this gives us hope that all parents will want to take good care of their kids after realizing their wrong ways!
