1. Ended Quickly But Enjoyed It Fully [Rating: 8/10]
A good drama. Light, but full of lessons and cheesy stuff from Teppei-kun. I love Maya Miki and Mizuki Arisa here. And I'm now a Teppei-kun fan. ^_^

I love the older woman/younger guy story�Ls, but this one was a disapointment in that field, i try but i just can�Lt take Koike Teppei serious, he�Ls an awful actor with an awful look, i can�Lt believe he�Ls from the same species has myself lol.
He had no chemestry at all with Mizuki Arisa and that really killed the mood of the dorama. Anyway despite the awful performance by Koike Teppei i still enjoyed this dorama, mostly because of Mizuki Arisa�Ls character, it was my first time seeing a dorama with her so i can�Lt really make any comparisons, but her character here was really good and i love those king of female characters.
An enjoyable dorama but really forgetable.

Cute and funny, I enjoyed this drama from start to finish. It certainly has its flaws (a somewhat underdeveloped relationship, underdeveloped side-characters) and it ended far too soon, in my opinion, but overall a nice break from all seriousness! The finale had me squealing at its cuteness at times, and rolling my eyes at its ridiculousness (and the ignorance of the main characters) other times. Which kind of sums up my thoughts about the series in general.

u know wot, i watched this with so much doubt clouding my mind but it was a really fresh dorama. I dont really like Teppei but I luv Mizuki Arisa and its one of thos doramas that u can sit bck after a long day and relax whilst watching without having to concentrate much. A love story between a strong minded woman in her 30s who is a teacher and very sorta feeble guy (Teppei) in the 20s. Cute!

Fairly enjoyable series. Older woman falls in love with a younger man. Pretty generic but the characters are lovable. The ending was lame though. Not a god-awful ending that ruins the whole series, but still not an ending that leaves you feeling satisfied.

Not good but watchable if you're a female with some free time to spare - it's something like a mediocre chick flick a la PS I love you. The synopsis is wrong -> they don't fall in love and start living together - they live together and that's mostly it.

this dorama have a nice athmosphere, but somehow the writer didnt want the relationship between the two main character move forward, there's no scene that indicating they really falling for each other, so it a bit disappointment for me

so cute! love teppei!!

my host sister in japan and i watched this together, but the timeslot was awful and i'd always be out when it was on. still, this show was what i looked forward to on my friday nights in :)

A average drama. The leads had no chemistry. Koike Teppei has absolutely no appeal...well at least for me anyways. I usually enjoy Maya Miki in everything I see her in, but surprisingly not in this one.
9. Comments by Nanaki [Rating: 8/10]
I really liked this drama! It was both sweet and hilarious :) and loved the acting of the main characters! (especially Teppei since he's one of my favorites, he was so adorable in his role!xD) Lovely.

So far, I think this dorama is very interesting. I've been watching 'til episode 5 en I can't hardly wait to watch the next episode.
It's a light dorama I think, so it's quite entertaining to me.

Sweet.... Nice..... a bit dragging in the middle but that's alright.... Actually, appearance-wise the main actress and actor are not really match for each other, but they have a good chemistry~~~~

A rather mediocre drama, with both highlights and low points. In the end it leaves you unchanged, but worth the time for the occasional laughter in lack of better dramas to watch.

Another drama with the storyline of working girl/middle age girl fall inlove with a younger men. I find storylines like this cute. The story is great the acting is also great.

I was hoping this would live up to the standards of Anego, but it's definitely falling short. Seems like another cliche school story, like GTO but with an Anego twist.

I loved this! Maya Miki and Mizuki Arisa plus Koike Teppei. Sure winner! It's cute and adorable and there's essentially no angst and it's cute, did I mention the cute?
16. Comments by Hinano [Rating: 8/10]
It was cute but I just couldn't see the chemistry between Satomi and Shinichi, they look way too different in age xDD Still worth the watch ^^

Young men and older woman it's theme of many dramas and ohitorisama doesn't bring nothing new. Sweet, sometimes funny, but nothing special.
18. Comments by himono [Rating: 6/10]
i found the relationship between the main characters a little too childish and they didn't work for me as a couple.

Even with Arisa, Matsushita, and Maya, not enough substance here to really recommend it.
23. Comments by Sleepingstar [Rating: 5/10]
It isn't bad and has some good parts, but didn't really like style of this dorama.
24. Comments by krome [Rating: 5/10]
This drama is a guilty pleasure of mine. Koike Teppei is frustratingly cute.
