1. Sweet and Sorrowful... [Rating: 9/10]
It's a powerful family combination of Sugiura, Takenaka, Ayase, Ichihara, Ryunosuke, and Rina. Each one a perfect member of this family that loses their mother. Full od suprises, and adorable quests for Hojo-kun.
The ending was a little odd, for it's not entirely an ending, but it's rejoiceful, however this drama left me at the brink of tearing, and you have no idea what's going to happen next!
This drama is perfect for a family, it shows how powerful the relationship of a family can be when they stick together. Problems can always be forgotten but family is always one!

2. It means charming, and it means it [Rating: 8/10]
This slice-of-village-life viewed through the eyes of a 12 year-old boy navigates between low-grade slapstick and high comedy, cheap melodrama and heart-warming delight. But the good far outweighs the bad and delivers some truly magical moments. Michael Jackson's perfectly fitting "Ben" reminds us that he too was a cute kid once.

This is an excellent and heartwarming family drama. The entire Mashiba family is awesome. One of my fav scenes ever was when Uta poured a kettle of water on an asleep Horo so that she wouldn't be the only one punished for wetting her futon. Now that's genius, folks. The first opening scene when Horo told us of his birth and introduced his family drew me in. The race in the last ep lead to a satisfying conclusion. Ayase Haruka delivered a noteworthy performance: much love! Of course, Oguri Shun shines the way he always does. This wasn't too much of a tearjerker, but the script, the direction, the pacing and the overall plot combines powerfully to make this one of my all time favourite dramas. Highly recced to anyone looking to be touched by a sweet show.

I've always enjoyed family-based Jdoramas. The Japanese producers are really good at winning tears from the audience. The values potrayed in the drama are simple yet meaningful. Excellent performances by the young actors & actresses. They really touched me. And Uta-chan is so cute!!!!!! I would want a daughter like her...hahaha! A nice & heart-warming drama. Highly-recommended!

July 2005: Too many characters in this drama, too many 'deep' meaning dialogues, although the scriptwriter is the well known Shinji Nojima, just dun hav the urge to watch the next episode. The children are cute and talented, but what a waste cus the adult cast were great too, some parts were touching, and boring at the same time....
4. Comments by DragonSpirit164 [Rating: 8/10]
Not Bad!! The drama grows more on you the more you watch it, and from halfway through it becomes rather addictive actually. I really liked Gou's character, he's a true brother. And not to mention he gets all the screen time with the lovely Erika, in one of her debut dramas :P. A decent family drama.
5. Comments by Kirari Ililah [Rating: 9/10]
Powerful family combination, Rynosuke's so adorable as Hojo in this one!
Left me in tears each time, but feels like it can go on, for the only conclusion would be the death of the mother, but it continues after that...
Ichihara's so adorable too, the big, idiotic brother....^-^

A charming little story about how life goes on, and your family sticks together through it all, no matter what happens. Nothing that horrifically occurs during the story really, but life is usually not that tragic, and that's the point. Very impressive.

Standard family drama with standard family drama problems, stand family drama solutions, standard family drama cliches and standard family drama overacting. (Especially Hayato Ichihara.)

A nice family drama. Nothing too big, nothing too small. Just ok!

Doesn`t figure in my favorites but if you feel like a nice family drama, I recommend it.

I usually find family doramas too slow, too cheesy, and cannot finish them. This was was interesting enough that I could not stop. Nice one!

I like the story line and it is worth watching. All actors and actress do the best performance. Good for family motivation.

It's a very touching family/human drama with a slow tempo that might bore you if you like something more dramatic.
18. Comments by aoiharu [Rating: 8/10]
I actually got interested in this for Ichihara.
The family setting was nice and warm, and I did tear in the end.
