Synopsis
A woman goes to a house to meet her boyfriend with whom she had planned to skip the country, along with 50 million yen in cash. When she gets to the house, there is no boyfriend, no money and a trail of blood leading to a closet. Opening the closet causes this nude, blood covered body (Kimura) to come falling out. She gets the guy into a hospital to revive him in hopes he can tell her where the boyfriend and the money went, but the guy from the closet has lost his memory. She then employs him (probably to keep track of him in case he ever recovers his memory) as a courier.

1. Weirdly hooked [Rating: 7/10]
If you love Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi, you'll dig this one (there's Ryo in Takehiro).
A twisted tale and quite weird with dark comedy. I kind of hate the first part of the series because it drags. Also hated the bare breasted women (UGHH, YUK!).

The high rating is for takuya brilliant performance.Portraying totally different characters then smoothly merging it into one. Yukio is virtuous, innocent yet sexy while Takehiro is compulsive, nasty and wickedly mesmerizing. There's a part where takehiro reminds me of the vampire Lestat (int. with the vampire). The scene when he talks to his bestfriend, the light were reflected tru his eyes making it looked haunted like a cat on the verge of attacking. Those eyes...

2. Just.....okay [Rating: 2/10]
The story drags and drags as if never ends. Every episode there is something new coming up, but it usually doesn't help to solve the mystery. Messy plot.

4. Just OK [Rating: 6/10]
Compared to other Takuya's dorama, this was not as good as the rest. But overall it was still OK to watch.

A very good drama. I hope Takuya starrs in this kind of drama once again. I don't really like his recent dramas. I loved the theme song Tokyo Joe, and I loved Takuya's performance. It proved to me that Takuya has a great acting talent. He looked so innocent as Yukio and so evil as Takehiro. Also, Takuya looked very SEXY in this drama. He's still good looking but he was beautiful in 1997.
I'd give this 9 since because the first five episodes were a little bit boring from time to time. As the story gears toward the end, it gets more interesting!
I also really liked Shinohara Ryoko here. So cute!

Takuya Kimura is truly the king of jdorama. He is too sexy and beautiful for words in his role as the man with no past, no memories. Its a joy watching him play a Gucci clad, Cohiba cigar smoking delivery man who rides a bike with an attitude. Love, money and betrayal is the classic theme of suspense and mystery thrillers and add the angle of lost memories and it is the work of a genius. But more than that it is a story of redemption, of new beginnings of the sublime internal struggle between good and evil. Gift is a perfect 10, truly worth watching every second of it.

If there wasn't kimutaku I would have given it a -456847145! So bad dorama!!! But thanks to kimutaku where's a pleasant atmosphere! so kakkoii! Shinohara Ryoko is pitiful in this dorama. And I think it would have been better to make kimutaku remember more things before the last episode which is the most interesting. It would have been interesting to develop the last episode in two or three ones! The song is nice anyway! entertaining ne!
5. Comments by Susie [Rating: 8/10]
Takuya is so kakkoi in this one! I liked that we get to find out little by little the pieces of the same puzzle as he does. It's not as mysterious as Sleeping Forest or Ice World, but it still makes you guess all the way through what you will discover next!
6. Comments by natzumi [Rating: 9/10]
Interesting storyline of a guy with memory loss trying to peice evertying together. I thought the story was appropirate and well written. It's one of the first drama that I've seen and enjoyed tremendously. Takuya steals the snow.
7. Comments by piglet44 [Rating: 5/10]
The only attraction for this drama is that it stars Kimura Takuya. Otherwise, its quite a dark drama on the whole. Good for those who like Cheap Love that kind of drama. This is definitely more interesting than Cheap Love.

Cara Siooot.Dari Intro Sampai Ending....Perfect.Drama ada konsep jenayah sikit-sikit.yang penting aku suka stail Takuya Kimura sbg delivery boy yang degil.Aku amik masa satu hari abiskan drama ni.(MUZIK VALLEY MID VALLEY)
9. Comments by GIGI [Rating: 8/10]
I would have appreciated this better if it was sub-titled. The first dorama that I watched raw! And i found it good. Kimura Takuya was gorgeous in those suits and I shiver whenever he pulls off the hair band..brrrr...
10. Comments by we!Rd^dUcK [Rating: 9/10]
well, i just can say... not feeling wasteless in buying all kimura's dorama cuz he played diff in each of it... n in dis... he really smart with his long hair n his tuxedo... well, dis one is really a great dorama.
11. Comments by Ezalor [Rating: 8/10]
And again, a very special Dorama with a shining Kimura. Topic and chacracters are very unique, there are even flat and deep ones. Cool soundtrack and a laidback feeling, but the end wasn't worked out that good.
12. Comments by moonchyld [Rating: 6/10]
it's ok... not one of takuya's best thou. his performance might have been great, but the story was quite confusing, and the ending wasn't that satisfactory. didn't like his supporting actors/resses as well...
13. Comments by pj0t [Rating: 7/10]
the most important thing: i luv takuya's hair in this drama!!~
secondly: the plot of how yukio remembering about his past was ploted very nicely.
thirdly: takuya did a very great job in this drama.
14. Comments by gaijinmark [Rating: 9/10]
More like 9.5, a very underrated Kimura drama! (If there's such a thing) Excellent script, great cast, so many good supporting actors here can't list them all. Great, great drama, big thumbs up!!
15. Comments by takuya_angel [Rating: 9/10]
So far...i am enjoying this show very much. It have quite an interesting story line and as usual, Takuya's acting is superb and he's sooo kakkoii with his long hair and white suit.

Ah, KimuTaku again! Erm, he looked very young in this drama! Very good-looking! He was quite energetic though as he can run so fast in the drama..:)
