1. Family complex [Rating: 10/10]
I dont get it why some people said this is a boring and bad drama.They should give good explanation and describe why this drama is such a boring drama! I love this drama...it makes me cry. Family is so important, u get good moral value from this drama...yutaka did a great job!!! well done...

They took an old theme but brought nothing new to it. The whole thing moves at a drowsy pace, but the pace is steady, the acting first rate, and the music score just right. It's slow without being boring and grows on you without sticking. Hard to hate it, hard to love it.

Actually Id give it 7.5/10. The story was absorbing and the acting good but a certain human element was missing. AAnd stayed missing. Bu all in all an enjoyable drama.

This drama is so good.I love a family drama. It's kind of 'Boku to Kanojo to Kanojo no Ikiru Michi' and 'Narita Rikon' combination in storyline. Don't miss this series if you love that two dramas.Plus Takenouchi Yutaka as a family man! wow , a new role for him! Other actors are also doing a good job especially Watari Tetsuya and Ishida Yuriko (she's hot!).

Watched this on youtube with chinese subs because i was so desperate. Unfortunately i cannot read chinese. Was worried that i can't get this in VCD form. My first family Jdrama. Even though i didn't understand some parts, this drama was excellent. Had me in tears a number of times. Great chemistry between Takenouchi and his 'son'.

April 2007: Luckily it's only 8 episodes long. With good acting from seasoned actors, certain parts of this drama are quite touching. In the end, the main message is still the same, appreciate your family. Spend more time with them.

It is a sweet drama and the setting is interesting. Three guys(old,middle-aged, young) got together and kept good relationships. If you like Takenouchi Yutaka, you will like it. He is so sweet in this drama.

Takenouchi Yutaka did a good job acting as a single parent in this dorama. This is a very slow paced dorama but very meaningful for those who appreciate family dorama.

Great heart-warming story with awesome Takenouchi Yutaka. And of course that little boy did a great job too portraying a kid in such a complex situation.

Excellent role for Takenouchi. I've been where his character was, trying to juggle a job and a kid.

It has my fav male lead, but the drama was just soso. The older man's face looked kinda fake.
