This drama is an example of why writers should try to limit their plot lines and the obstacles the main characters have to overcome. I was surprised to see the combination of the story of second son of a funeral parlous returning to take over the family business with all the trappings of an amateur detective novel, but it was done well in the series. Eikura Nana and Yamapi worked well together, though normally neither is a favourite of mine. But the addition of the family's very unrealistic mountain of problems, topped off by the eldest son (a half brother no less) and his incurable brain tumour, overshadowed much of the good of this show by the time it reached its conclusion. I would have liked more emphasis on the supernatural element, such as an earlier explanation of that, and more emphasis on the detective work and business of the funeral parlour. Despite the hiccups in the plot, overall the cast was superb. I may not have liked his character's addition, but Sorimachi Takashi is a decent actor and he put on a fine performance in this. The guest stars each episode were superb and memorable as well. Though my personal favourite character was definitely Yamazaki Tsutomu's Iwata, who was by far the most interesting out of anyone. His performance brought out the best in Yamapi as well and their scenes together were my favourites. Overall a watchable drama, but maybe not quite worth it unless you're a diehard Yamapi and/or Eikura Nana fan.

Wow, this drama. It was really unrealistic in the "family" category, but at the same time it was horribly interesting. Overall I really liked this drama. The actors did a great job in their roles. I was also really surprised when freaking Aikawa Sho showed up, lol!

If you're willing to kill off a box of tissues this is a good drama!

That one was a downer - the first episode was quite lovely I thought despite the wooden idols. But then it mixed up so many elements such as mystery of the week, family drama, love story, all rolled into one indistinguishable boring story.

Rather enjoyable family drama with supernatural trimmings. I don't normally like Sorimachi Takashi but he was good in this.
