1. Strong, powerful, and fabulous! [Rating: 10/10]

I had no expectations for this drama. I actually dove right into it after finishing another drama. What attracted me to it was the list of actresses involved. All other knowledge of the basis of the show was limited.

I have never before seen a drama focused on the struggle of women. What a depressing�c yet uniquely inspirational selection of stories! With just four episodes, each one stands alone. Each one features a female struggling through life.

There is a moral in each story, and at the end something is resolved. I thoroughly enjoyed the second episode, starring Horikita Maki, but it was Ueno Juri�fs final episode that really gripped my heart. I was in tears, and even now, after having finished it, I can sense her loneliness and yearning. She is definitely a strong, solid actress �| and worthy of all our votes!

All four actresses (Ueto Aya, Horikta Maki, Yamada Yu, and Ueno Juri) were superb, and managed to take each powerful plot and make it their own story.

A fabulous drama. I can�ft wait to start part two!

Great short heavy stories. I think first and last are the best ones, and that's strange because I don't usually like stories with kids involved. But here you'll find abuse and solitude and anger and bitterness and fear and (non-explicit) violence and sex, and a final reflection, and a character change. These stories made me cry and somehow I felt connected to the character's feelings, and that's something not all doramas do. And being short episodes, stories are stronger and straight-forwarded; more character development was not necessary at all. Really nice dorama.

I liked the Aya and Ueno's ones.... The one starring Horikita Maki is ok... and i hated the Yu's one.... (as for my rate... i would give an 8/10 for the first and the last ones... 7 for the second and 3 for the third.. divided by 4... Seven out of ten). As for the dorama... the casting is pretty good (even the support actors r r amazing actors), the stories r pretty well made (except by the third one). Honestly i dont like those kind of shows (short stories... lack of character development) but this one is really good... worth watching!!!!

Very interesting concept, and I want to praise the writers for managing to squeeze some deep, thought-provoking stories in those tiny 35' eps.! Unfortunately, as far as I'm concerned, the last two episodes ended up being just so-and-so (due to main characters I had a hard time relating to, and also due to endings I didn't really like), and that was quite a bit of a let-down after the first two eps. which were instead absolutely great. So, the first 2 would deserve a 10, the last 2 a 6...let's meet in the middle: 8/10 ^__-

This drama contains 4 short stories written by Yoshi. This drama contains a good mix of true stories that can happen to anyone. At each ending there's a small passage which is very enlightening. I really enjoyed all of them. Not bad if you are interested in some thought provoking drama of the human relationship in the modern society of today. Or rather in Japan's society of today.

great stories..from real life but very encouraging..I loved especially the one with Aya-chan and the one with Maki-chan..I think that stories like these are not rare, it happens quite often..we all humans have good and evil side, we are all greedy and envious and need to be kicked to realize what is imporant..
6. Comments by Susan [Rating: 9/10]
Each episode of this drama was a well-written self-contained story. Each of the lead actresses did a wonderful job in her role! I especially enjoyed Ueno Juri, who was wonderful as the surrogate mother who learns how to want to love another. Horikita Maki was also very good! I recommend this drama!
7. Comments by Smitster [Rating: 4/10]
This drama was really disappointing to me, the characters must've really fallen to get to where they are! I just don't like pathetic characters, really. It does have some highlights however, the webcam episode was the best of the four, and some scenes were quite funny to me. Intentional? Maybe...

It was really short and i started watching all of the episodes at like 1am so i finished at 5.....so yeah i dont really remember it all that well anymore but i do remember that i liked it ALOT haha i think i especially like horikita Maki's
9. Comments by rookie-chan [Rating: 10/10]
This drama is really great! Especially the first two episodes featuring Ueto Aya and Horikita Maki. The endings are always inspiring, leaving us a moral message. Live Chat (the ones with Horikita Maki in it) is really inspiring~! Suteki!

I really enjoyed watching these four episodes. Even though they are short, they still portray a really profound lesson. The lessons are universal, so despite the fact that the protagonists are all females, even men can learn something.

This series is actually a set of unrelated short stories about women in distress. Some of the stories a grand. I like the one with Horikita Maki best. Very touching! The one with Ueno Juri is also very entertaining.
13. Comments by chinz [Rating: 7/10]
i watched episode 4 only, for obvious reasons... the story was warm and i saw another side of juri-chan... there is a gradual change in attitude... a short story with a moral.

I love the idea of having every different ep. have different girl's problems. Each ep. taught me something very valuable in life. I really love he Live Chat one.
15. Comments by Eyeyore [Rating: 9/10]
I wonder if they are real stories. They ought to be shown in the school boardroom. Not surprising that many young ladies live a double life.

maki, aya, and juri...it's nice but saddening in a sense that there are women like them...supposedly women should be taken care of, loved

Fourth dorama I watched. Not to bad... I liked the morals. I wish that it went more into depth. It really touched me though. Very good.

Variant 4 stories about hardships of modern women and girls in Japan, each episode has its own cast. Very good for a change in taste.

one episode for a storyline is pretty short, so they don't develop easily.. but still the show has some style and character.

4 different episodes. I liked more the first two, so I give 9 as a vote to the ep. i prefer, the ueto Aya's one.

Most of the stories feels too dramatic and sad to be true but they are really inspiring. I like live chat best~
