1. W-O-W [Rating: 10/10]
woooooow....I've always loved Tackey acting...and this drama did not disappoint. It was awesome!!! saw the whole thing in one night. Could not stop watching it. Episode after episode had some sort of cliff hanger that just kept you glued to the screen. Very sad story to have happen to ones mother. Cruel and unfair. Nao taking charge of the situation and his father letting him pursue the lawsuit completely was just so great for his character. It was something he had to do and it made me feel like i was in his place seeking justice for his mother. I'm sure his mother would have been proud. This drama was so hard for me to find. Glad I was able to watch it. Youll miss out if you don't watch this drama. :)

2. Maybe not for romance fans or very young audience? [Rating: 10/10]
Great drama, touching & makes you reflect (just like what most jdrama are capable of doing to its audience). I cried even from episode one! Touches on family love, BGR love, justice & social pressure. It makes you question if sometimes it's worth it afterall to know the truth, especially if it's at high cost (maybe the really young audience may not understand its underlying values so they find it boring..?) The plot may not be extraordinary but the emphasis on the values in this drama is deep and emotional. I'm sure Takizawa's fans would have watched his great performance in this, if not, it's a must-see! I bought the dvd for keepsake, that's how good it is to me!

3. Very good! [Rating: 10/10]
A very good drama! I watch this drama at one go! Took me about 8 hours [since there are 8 discs]. It is worth my time because the plot is interesting. This is the kind of drama where you will just sit there and keep on watching because you are eager to know what happens next! As always, Takizawa Hideaki is a very good actor. I've always like his dramas. If you're into law/justice dramas, then this is the one for you! ^_^

4. Very good story line [Rating: 8/10]
Strong plot, Takky is very good looking and acted very well. The story should do away the relationship between takizawa and yasuko , I can't feel their chemistry at all, don't even feel that Takky likes her, or they should change yasuko to someone prettier, it won't do with the guy looking so much prettier than the girl. It's a must watch for Takky's fans.

This is one show i couldn't stop watching. loved the plot and the chemistry between takizawa and yasuko (its not a love story though). Many touching moments. I would say its a must watch.

Great setup and good story-telling, very intense. Not as dark as Taiyou no Kisetsu. Still very good. Watch it. The bengoshi lady is totemo kakkoi.

As always, the good-looking Takizawa Hideaki is what made me focus on watching. The storyline was fairly interesting, it was my first "mystery" "suspense" drama, so wasn't very used to it. I thought Kirino Setsu (the lawyer) was well picked for the part. I greatly admired her character. The storyline was well developed and fairly original. An intersting drama about a son trying hard to find out how his mother died. A fairly touching story, but not touching enough for tears to run down the cheek. Overall, a drama that deserves a fair rating.
3. Comments by Hinano [Rating: 6/10]
Ya know I expected more from a Takizawa Hideaki drama...but I was a lil disappointed with this. All the "usual" chemistry I feel between Takki and the girl he "likes" was just NOT There. I mean this whole drama really IS focused on nothing but legal mumbo jumbo which is cool up to the point of where it just drags on and ya wanna be like Oh just ADMIT to it just solve teh damn case. Well at least Akanishi Jin in episode 6 was a bonus....

Will Takki win the case or will his mom die without getting back her respect?! Will Takki & Yuka'z love succeed!? U'll hafta watch it! haha . . . but this drama is sorta boring . . . only the beginning is good, da back gets boring! I'm sorry to say but even if Takki is in it . . . it'z still boring >< gomen! But of course u should still give it a try ^^ Hope u will like it ^^

I know many people find this show very slow. personally, i feel it's a well-paced drama. this drama is realistic as well, as we see the power of huge companies (hospital, in this case) in concealing certain truths behind the deaths of patients. yasuko's acting was fabulous! the part when she cried in court due to overwhelming emotions was just wow.
6. Comments by yolande [Rating: 10/10]
very good dorama. its a little slow moving at first, but the drag of the start is necessary. i didn't get hook till near the middle, but once you get into it, you realize that its fabulous. i positively adore matsuyuki yasuko in the show. cool yet feminine, she was totally poised. takki's acting skill is impressive too. very good plot.
7. Comments by Tiffany [Rating: 9/10]
This story was so GOOD. There's not much romance or anything, but the fight for justice and the pain and happiness that comes along with that is so clearly portrayed in the dorama. It really made you think and was very serious. Tackey was brilliant and the overall story is very touching and dramatic.
8. Comments by pandora [Rating: 9/10]
I thought this dorama would be a bunch of legal jargon and courtrooms so I was pleasantly suprised to find that I really liked it and that it was not all about the law suit, it is sad though, Taki gave a great performance. A little hard on teh brain because of all teh medical and legal jargon though.
9. Comments by rikastar [Rating: 6/10]
Didn't like the plot... the story moved along very slowly especially in the middle. Minami sensei is CREEPY and Yuka's character is dispensable. Still I started liking Takki and thinking he's a good actor here, and Matsuyuki Yasuko was very good as the lawyer too.
10. Comments by Jwen [Rating: 2/10]
It scored marks with decent acting. Demo, tsumaranai.....I must confess I never made it past the first disk. Can't stand the sight of Hideaki's love interest. I'm really big on Takky so if I couldn't plod on with the drama it really must mean something.......ne?

This is the best J- drama I have ever watched- it's a more dramatic version of the kind of drama like "ice world": a bit of mystery, a bit of reality, a lot of character development, wonderful script, moving portrayal of family relationships.

this is a really a good drama with a good lesson.make me cried at the last eps.takki and matsuyuki are really a good combi, no wonder takki won the best actor award for his role in this series.he really deserved it.

Engaging plot with twists (and touching at the same time) that keeps you watching to the last episode. Leaves you very satisfied at the end because there are no loose ends.

takky in evil character. it doesn't fit for his melancholic face. my comment could be bias. anyway the storyline itself is OK.

A young boy's fight for justice. I like how each new evidence is slowly revealed to the viewers. It is not a romance show though so it may not appeal to a wide range of audience.
