Toda Naho mysteriously disappears after her wedding. In the search for her...the four wives, their husbands and the detective are all guilty of (false) assumptions, deceitfulness, gossip and we learn that many of them had crossed paths with one of the other in the past.
Every character is despicable. Worthless husbands, gossiping wives. That's what you get every episode. Seen one, you've seen em all & with each episode it gets worse. This drama plays so hard for laughs it's lame. The writings weak. Maybe they just made it up as they were shooting. Momoi Kaori's character is trash. Constant playin/scratchin her hair is disgusting. 8th episode. The four share a teary moment. You gotta see the breakdown! Bust out the awards! Final episode's a joke just like this drama.
If you want a real drama, check out Four Lies.

A woman disappears and four friends from her past try to find her. The first 2 episodes or so are slow, a bit of patience is required. It should not be remembered as a mystery drama (the mystery is just decent) but as a portrait of female friendship. It depicts well all kind of dilemmas (mostly Japanese) women are bound to encounter in their lives with men. In that perspective itfs a much better drama than Around 40. I had a great time watching the girls maturing and taking responsibility and giving their mediocre men well-deserved kicks.

A character based mystery show with an excellent cast and writing. Everybody has some to hide, and it's the revelations of these secrets which drives the plot, but at no time does it feel forced. It's been described as a Japanese Desperate Housewives, but it's a completely different sort of show, and much much better. The ending was a little anticlimactic, but satisfying.

to be expected. leak a bit at a time so as to keep the whole drama running but after awhile, you wish they would just get to the plot and be done with the endless chatting of the women. i gave this drama a 6 for that. then i actually watched the drama to the end. it turned out to be a soul searching experience for the women.

Has a Desperate Housewives kind of feel to this drama, but I find this a lot better. The interactions between Momoi Kaori (Shindou) and Kohinata Fumiyo are my favorites parts in this show as well as the "Bara Hime no Mori" scenes. Overall, this is a good mystery drama with a lot of female power.

I thought it got off to a slow start but after the first few episodes when it started to get into the mystery it got better. Acting was good too, especially from the older actors. The family and character scenes are nice but I really cared about the mystery more.

The ending totally blew! The newlywed couple at the heart of the mystery aspect of the show were so annoying and rather despicable people. I could have cared less if they ended up dead.

Quite enjoyable but marred by holes in the plot line and irrational actions. The ladies performed well but I actually was more impressed by Sawamura Ikki and Kohinata Fumiyo.

An entertaining mystery drama. It was interesting to see how four strangers came together and got along because of one person they bearly know.

Liked this a lot. Good cast, especially Momoi Kaori. (Any 50-something woman that wears a "Ramones" t-shirt you gotta like, ne?)

The ending left me wanting more. The mystery throughout the series was good but too end it like that dropped the rating.
