The story itself is a light-hearted romantic comedy and will revolve around unsuccessful love affairs and the straightforward way Honjou and the other women discuss their feelings. In the Japanese version, Honjou plays the part of a divorced freelance writer named Hanako Takamori. In the first episode, she gets picked up by a guy at a party and they go to a hotel. After taking a shower before her, the guy hands her a S&M kit and tries to persuade her to go to work on him.

1. LUV'D it!!!! [Rating: 10/10]
I loved everything about this show.. the characters, the story, the music... luved it, luved it, luved it. I even bought the soundtrack, which I play it often...it really gets me going. I was surprised to learn that in Japan it was played up to be "sort of Japanese version" of Sex and the City..because it's 120% better than that stupid American show. The stories and characters don't even compare. A must see for the modern gal.

2. Wonderful Underrated Adult Romantic Comedy/Drama [Rating: 10/10]
Terribly UNDERRATED!!! This was a great drama with good acting, great chemistry all around. Great supporting characters. I loved that every episode had a focus on each character's romance and moved those stories along all the way up until the end. Funny, dramatic but not too dramatic, charming, very different from most Jdramas. Think Sex and The City in Tokyo, but better!

3. Very watchable [Rating: 8/10]
I really enjoyed watching this drama after seeing a pair of drawn-out, over-cooked dramas. If you are tired of the "drama" aspect being done over too long of a time, then this drama is the one for you. It's not perfect, but not too over-done in terms of the story.

Great drama! As many have said, it's very much like Sex and the City without the R-rating.

I found it to be a very fun drama that reminded me a little of an up-to-date version of Hitonatsu no Proposal. The characters were likeable (with the exception of Hosho Mai, who I have never liked), but at times, I found the indecisiveness and people not being open with each other really annoying, even though that's how it sometimes is in real life. Highly recommended!

I didn't like this dorama very much. I've never seen SATC at all so I don't know if they are alike or not. Although tis dorama was well produced and acted, I didn't believe in any of the relationships (how they start, how they end). And they kept not showing their true feelings all along, until the very last moment. Average romance dorama that really bored me at the end.

I didnLt think it was like SATC at all. No fashion, no (clearly shown) shagging and no cocktails. Although Love and Fight had a lot of booze too! It did extremly bad at ratings but it was a lot better and funnier than I expected. Portrayed women in a somewhat goofy and realistic way.

Much more than I expected, what a treat this was, so funny, turned a bit serious at the end but in a light hearted way, big thumbs up fo Manami Honjo.
6. Comments by lelokong [Rating: 3/10]
even though everything turn out alright, they dated a bunch of stupid guys, and they dont know why they always fail at relationship.

The cast is interesting and colorful, and yet.....you can see what is coming from a mile away. But it has it's funny parts.

Wonderful! Great acting and a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. It's great comedy without getting redicilous.

It's an average drama, you won't miss out on anything if you don't watch this.

A nice drama. Most people sort of compare this to tv show Sex and the City.
