The main point of this show SHOULD be: Umeko is stupid and ditsy, and she struggles in everything that she does. Horikita Maki plays that role very well.

That said, I feel this drama sold itself short. It's much better in the beginning when she is struggling as a good natured and strong willed but mostly incompetent girl trying to become a doctor, rather than actually as a doctor. It really weakens her character. Not that I would think they should leave out the "payoff" of her development, but they should have delayed it. Likewise the hard aspects of establishing her own practice are underdeveloped, and too quickly she is a success. And in general it seems like this show lacks any major plot developments, like they are trying to hurry up and sweep all the important things under the rug so they can quickly get back to their intense focus on the mundane. Though that sounds harsh, in reality, it is part of the charm this show still has. There is a lighthearted and pleasant vibe throughout the entire series that I did love, and that fits very well with the morning drama format.

Extremely enjoyable and fluffy drama, first Asadora that I know of when the heroine has to clean the out house.Maki Chan & cast do a good job , I especially like Takahashi Katsumi (whom I only seem to see in comedic roles ) as the grumpy Kenzo. Pity they didn't do more with Mimura and Tomaka Kurakawa.

Japan's post-war period is one of my favorites so I knew I'd probably like this drama going in. Horikita does a decent job with help from a real good supporting cast.
