1. Adult romance [Rating: 9/10]
Within romantic doramas, this one falls in the category of the more serious and realistic types. The setup is a bit gloomy, Ueto Aya trying to commit suicide, but the development of the story makes sense, goes at the right pace, and touches many other societal topics that help make the story all the more interesting. The pace is not too quick, but that's how things are in real life.

Takenouchi Yutaka and Ueto Aya are perfect in their role, the supporting cast is very good and brings the comedic relief to the story.
If you are looking for a more interesting romantic story, this one will keep you watching till the end.

2. Not That Great [Rating: 6/10]
At 1st when i was watching this drama i was enticed by the summary and the comment of the viewers, however the love story turned out to be long, slow, and short. The main couple well in fact there is only a couple in this drama, can get and be together and shown intimacy only on the last scene of the last episode. Not really into this drama but quite enjoying the story though.

3. Not my taste [Rating: 4/10]
I am not a fan of the leading actress but I wanted to watch it anyhow. It was too draggy and after a few episodes I realized that this was not my taste.

By the end of the first episode it is entirely obvious where this is headed, and while watching, I would occasionally stop and think about how many episodes I had already seen with still no significant development of the relationship between the two characters. Surprisingly though, I wasn't very bothered by it. It's a very deliberately paced drama, and both the leads have a similar nonchalant attitude, it's almost under-acted, with the two leads standing around looking cool and worried all the time. It's a style that could be aggravating to some, but I found it to have an intriguing quality to it. The antics of Ueto's psychopathic brother were over the top, they were integral to the plot, but I wish it could have been written to be a bit more believable. With that this may have been a masterpiece for me because I actually prefer more slow paced dramas, but even still I quite enjoyed it.
2. Comments by SayaOtonashi [Rating: 6/10]
Even though Ueto Aya acting was great as always, I did not like this dorama. It developed so slowly it bored me most of the time. Inagaki Goro's character was awful and everybody was lying all the time and deciding things selfishly. Isn't it easier being honest and just tell the truth? I felt almost all the things the characters decided to do were just the opposite to what I would have done. Maybe I miss something because I'm not Japanese and then I'm not able to grasp some inner culture details that may make this dorama a wonderful one. Anyway, and despite everything, SPOILER ahead:

The last minutes of the last episode have the most beautiful hugh and kiss I've ever seen in any dorama. But the previous 15 minutes were just agonic, they kept running up and down all the time, and I was like: "Just use your damn phone!". Definitely not on my "must watch" list.

This drama had many intense and cliffhanging moments that makes you want to watch more. The use of jellyfishes was creative and tied in pretty well from beginning to end. Aya Ueto played a very interesting character which held a lot of emotions, but all characters ultimately made a lasting impression. A very sad, but heartwarming and touching story.
5. Comments by Sun_Shang_Xiang [Rating: 10/10]
I didn't count myself as a big fan of either Takenouchi Yutaka or Aya Ueto until watching this drama but they really pushed themselves on this one.Inagaki Goro also did well on this one, everytime I saw him a felt my blood pressure rise. Excellent work !

Ueto Aya's coming out role to me. I've seen her in mediocre roles and just when I thought she was going to be in that zone forever, Nagareboshi came along and showed a different side. The plot is okay, but I liked the acting mainly.
7. Comments by loveaomori [Rating: 9/10]
I've never been a fan of Ueto Aya but with this dorama i'm reconciliated with her. She became very pretty and not only cute girl with short hair. Nice dorama, you'll get curious about how it will end.
8. Comments by xerith [Rating: 9/10]
Nice acting all round. Not too heavy... felt that it was just about right (although I did tend to want to kick Aya's brother's character at times...). Nice song as well by Kobukuro.
9. Comments by DoramaQ [Rating: 10/10]
Originally wanted to watch this because Takenouchi's the lead, but loved how the story developed. I couldn't wait to see what Goro's character would do next: he was SO convincing!

This drama...! I love it, it's sooo emotional and atmospheric and has a nice story, a nice pace, a nice cast. It's overall great! But the best part really is the atmosphere...!

Ueto Aya is almost the same age as me and maybe that is why I enjoy her acting change because I also change and I enjoy seeing playing more series characters.

Surprised that I enjoyed this drama, as i'm not a big Uteo Ayae Fan. Still this was a good romantic series!

I won't attempt to watch it again. Too draggy and the lead actress I think is not interesting at all.
