i saw this long time ago, so i dont remember it too well...i like Suzuki Kyoka and Matsuyuki Yasuko...so that helped me enjoy it more...the characters were interesting...it was kind of like Maison Ikkoku with a mystery added in...i remember thinking that the ending was way over the top

I like Kyoka Suzuki's acting performance. This is as above average drama. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Not boring at all�cI questioned the ending a little bit. For some reason, the writer did not want a happy ending for the main characters�cwhat a shame!
