Synopsis
Tokiwa plays a reporter for a major daily newspaper. She's a sharp dresser with a sharp tongue and she commits the ultimate press club transgression. She asks an embarrassing but pertinent question in a Finance Ministry press conference. Back at the home office, she is reminded of the "rules": don't ask or write about anything sensitive, just farm the press releases handed out. Actual reporting, especially investigative reporting, is not part of the game. As punishment for breaking the rules, she is demoted to a post on Yukan Top, her paper's affiliated sex and sleaze tabloid. It is 120 yen and sold only at newsstands. So, her new editor explains, it must come up with headlines juicy and jolting enough to tempt commuters to opt for a Yukan Top rather than a can of coffee on the way home. The top story the day she arrives on the job revolves around whether a certain young starlet's new nude photo collection will or will not feature hair. Tokiwa is decidedly disgusted, but as the day wears on she also realizes one of the strange truths of the local media world. Despite all their sex and sleaze and silly fabrications, the popular press is one of the few places where one just might read about what is really happening and where an industrious reporter can actually track down a story. Tokiwa soon finds she has the freedom to write about an accused murderer who she just may be able to prove innocent.

1. Not so good drama [Rating: 6/10]
I don't like enough the story. Bad fact ablout journalish whom found a news with they're ways really shown in this drama. Many problems that must they threw for make the best news for their paper is what I like. Not easily gived up to find true fact, that is very important. But THE LOVE STORY IS VERY BAD.

3. Fun! [Rating: 8/10]
A good pace, top actors with the emtertaining world of tabloid newspapers for a background makes for a thoroughly enjoyable drama. Tokiwa and Saito deliver as always!

4. Can give it a miss [Rating: 4/10]
All quite famous cast - Tokiwa, Tomosaka and Kashiwabara. But the storyline is a let down. Could have been more interesting if there were more romantic involvement.

The cast as a whole give a good performance of what it is to be on this little newspaper, but there is no real connection between any of the cast

Tokiwa Takako and Tomosaka Rie star in this drama about a tabloid newspaper. Katayama (Tokiwa) makes a faux pas and is degraded to having to work for Yukan Top, a low grade tabloid paper. Katayama realizes though that through this newspaper she can expose the truth and also have the chance to prove a murderer innocent.

Can't really say it sucks... more like indifferent. While watching, I was interested in it and other times, I didn't enjoy watching it at all...

A terrific cast backs up this fast paced entertaining drama. Tokiwa and Saito deliver the goods in their usual professional styles.
