The storyline revolves around the newly appointed news director of the network's 11 p.m. Straight News program.

1. A More "Real" News Story [Rating: 8/10]
A very serious take a the News room story. Intriguing stories and good cast keep you going and going. I would have scored it higher if not for the somewhat lackluster/predicatable (think Koori no Seikai) kind of ending. This one is definitely worth a watch, however, so you know that News is not all about chasing girls/boys like so many other dramas make it seem like. I recommend it.

2. Not too bad [Rating: 5/10]
This drama is quite serious unlike Female announcer. It also stars Yonekura Ryoko. This drama features some unkowns but their performance is not bad.
