For most of the time I was watching this I felt that it was a very average, generic love story. While that shouldn't normally be considered a compliment, romance dramas seem to be somewhat MIA nowadays, and so that was enough to keep me watching.
The biggest complaint I thought I had with it was the JASDF setting, which as they make sure to point out isn't a real military, and furthermore this centers around some sort of publicity department of it. Surely nothing interesting could happen, or so I thought. I had noticed, in the first episode, that they had pointed out it was the year 2011, and for a moment I thought it very strange. Why set something just a few years back? It's so close to "now" that there should be no reason not to just have it be "now". It seemed slightly strange, and I had some sort of spidey senses tingling, but they didn't particularly make a big deal out of it, and I soon forgot this fact. And so it went nearly the entire series, average but enjoyable, until the very end of the second to last episode. There was a succesion of daily life type scenes, with a very cheerfull mood, but they kept showing the date... And then they started showing the time... And then, "ohh I get it now!" It gave me goosebumps. It put the whole series in a new perspective, and set up the last episode to be truly special and great.
And so it was a very average romance drama with a well above average ending. And considering that I feel the ending is usually the place where most dramas mess it all up, it ends up being overall really good.

Where to start. This drama is about the JASDF and Kyohei Shibata has all the military bearing of a used car salesman. Go Ayano's character "Sorai" is so emotionally unstable there is no way this guy would ever get in fighter jets, it's highly unlikely he would even pass basic officer candidate training. Didn't recognize Miki Mizuno until episode two and all I can say is, "What the hell happened? She used to be good!" Yui Arigaki's character is a hard nosed tv reporter that cries over a plate of spaghetti. I can't remember the last drama I saw that stretched credulity to the point where it was laugh out loud bad like this one.

Lovely series. Started this without great expectations and was most positively surprised. This drama features nice angles on both workplace and love and has great characters and actors all along! I really liked the main couple, but all the JASDF members were amazing and the TV station people felt like interesting characters as well. The balance between the "issue of the week" and the overall plot felt right and the whole story seemed anchored in real life. Characters and problems felt more real and mature than in most dramas but still delivered an overall optimistic image of life.

I thought this was a very sweet, fun drama. All the characters were loveable and it was easy to connect to them. The acting was good, the casting was good and it was a cute story. I really loved Sorai and Inapyon. <3

Didn't find enough chemistry between the two main characters to make the love story realistic and was not vested in the story.
