Is anyone watching this? I was a bit slow to this and recently finished episode 5, really loving this little gem. Takenouchi Yutaka is killing it as the cabby, he's just awesome and hilarious. I don't recall Yutaka having such a role before, and I can tell he's enjoying playing this quirky cabby to a hilt. Edawakare engineering various sound effects to produce that time slip sensation for his passengers always cracks me up. I've really liked how the stories played out every episode, and the guest actors are really fun.

I only watched it after finding Takenouchi Yutaka was in it. I hadn't really given it much thought, previously. I am glad that I did end up watching it, though, and am quite disappointed that it is over. The ending was fun.

I started to watch recently because there were a lot of good actors/actresses that I like making appearances and I was also curious about the theme... But I didn't expect to be so good. I am not finished yet but it seems to me that was one of the best dramas in the last season. Very good!

The cooking class is soo funny. I am watching this dorama and I really like it. The different situations and outcomes keep me interested. Also Takenouchi Yutaka was in the first dorama I ever watched and I have been watching his doramas since then so I might be biased...but this dorama got a holla from me :cheers:

Takenouchi Yutaka for me = Natsukashi!!! I first saw him in Long Vacation... he didn't change much. I like this drama but it could've been better. :) Anyway with Yutaka in it, I watched it 'til the end. I luv him in Boss though! :D His Gokon is more important than his work. lol~ Funny!

Wondering the same. Couldn't find it. Were you ever able to find any subs for it?
