My first instinct towards this was, oh great, a single mother who can't make ends meet because her husband was ran over by a train. She has no family because her father is dead and her mother abandoned her. Boo-hoo, let me guess, next up terminal illness, right? No, just a potentially life threatening one. Japanese dramas use these types of gimmicks the same way Hollywood uses sex and violence. But alas, in the end I was won over by Mitsushima Hikari's acting. Since I first saw her in Ohisama, various other dramas, and most notably in Soredemo Ikite Yuku, I was struck by how amazingly she can portray awkwardness. It's a very strange thing to see an actress typecast in such a unique way, though I imagine it would be more satisfying as an actress than say, being something more typical like "cute", or "funny." I presume the day will come when I will no longer be so easily charmed by something as abstract as awkwardness, but I'm not there yet.

This drama is all sappy scenes. The pears - bit over-the-top, jumping to conclusions, unrealistic. I caught myself daydreaming during some of the long-winded cheezy lines.
Nothing moved me, maybe a couple touching scenes.
I liked the way they shot the verdict. Very nice. The last scene was beautiful. Nozomi's a cutie pie ~bright young lady.

Somber yet charming look at single motherhood in modern Tokyo. If you're looking for a slice-of-life drama that shows a more challenging view of life in Japan, this is a good one. Even if you're not, it's still a good drama.

Outstanding performance by Mitsushima. Rio Suzuki great as little Nozomi. At times pretty intense, but still an excellent drama.
