Synopsis
The drama is set at the beautiful Shimanto River in the Kochi prefecture and revolves around a group of seven men and women and the unfolding of their lives.

Joutarou is a typical example of the so-called elost generationf in Japan. The term elost generationf refers to people who face a scarcity of employment right after graduating from school and therefore are left without any real perspective. He was lucky to find a regular employment, but it didnft last long and he was laid off due to downsizing. Around the same time he was also dumped by his girlfriend. Fed up with his life, he somehow ends up in a erevitalization groupf of the Shimanto River area in Kochi.

In my opinion this is one of those dramas that it made by the characters. I really enjoyed all the characters (and the actors portraying them). They were all really loveable and fairly realistic. Admittedly some of the drama in this drama was waaaaaaay blow out of proportions, but the characters make up for it. I'd really like to see more of Kiritani Kenta after this. He did a wonderful job as Junichi. And as usual, Ikuta Toma was wonderful. I think he must be one of the best actors out of Johnny's Entertainment.

Also, Jotaro's house in Shimanto looks amazing and I wish I lived there. ;____; And the scenery in this drama was amazing. <3

Noble attempt to realistically portray the struggles of small town twenty and thirty-somethings limited by old-fashioned conventions or their own inabilities to move forward. A good, albeit slow quality watch. Mind you, this is a typical drama where all characters take the morally "good/noble" decisions in the end, which in real life they would not, hence rendering it unrealistic.

Okay, so this is a rural Japanese version of "Friends". Still, the acting is pretty good and the location (Shimanto) is beautiful. Oh, and good luck trying to get the theme song out of your head anytime soon! (That's a good thing.)

It's not a bad drama. It's just that it's weak, and forgettable. I can't remember anything that happened in any of the episodes. That's what I mean.

Slow developing drama ... strictly based on character development and interaction, as there is not much in the environment. Cute but a tad predictable.

nice drama to watch. I love the romance and day to day story. Ikuta Toma and Yoko really are good for their characters. Love the songs, too

Maybe an 8 is too high. But I really liked it and it was nice seeing real actors instead of some fanboy/fangirl fluff.

Nice drama about a problem facing many small towns in Japan. Worth watching!
