1. Good job, Becky! [Rating: 8/10]
Another drama I went in to with no expectations, and another drama I�fve completed feeling wholly satisfied. For her first role as the lead protagonist, Becky does an amazing job. She�fs everything her character needed to be: irritating, frustrating, annoying, pathetic, and downright unnerving. At first it was hard to watch the episodes because her character made the experience so exasperating. Yet, the more I watched, the more I realized that the drama itself was getting frustrated with her as well. The other characters expressed what I, the viewer, felt, and it dawned upon me that this was the point. As a viewer, I was SUPPOSED to feel frustrated and annoyed, the narrator constantly reminds me that I should.

This drama is a light comedy that makes fun of itself. The animation is really�c well�c animated, and some scenes are downright hilarious because of its lame antics (characters being replaced by dummies comes to mind). Kyoutaro (Kashiwabara Shuji) and Anna (Anzu Sayuri) make perfect secondary characters, and without either (especially Kyoutaro, for which Kasiwabara did an excellent and hilarious job in portraying), the drama simply wouldn�ft exist.

I tip my hat to the creators. The concept of this drama was really interesting and kept me hooked, Riri withstanding. ;)

This is the kind of gag that always manages to be amusing. The drama starts off with a story of a stunning, eligible girl - but the plot is deliberately hijacked by her best friend, a temp who thinks that every guy is interested in her. The comedy is buoyant and frequently LOL funny.

Becky has the lead role as Riri, a heroine who's so positive-minded that nearly everything she says (or thinks) is wildly distorted. This drama's concept catches fire at around episide 6, and, at its best, continues as a meta-parody of Japanese dramas. True, the writing is rather blunt as opposed to razor sharp, but the unique concept makes this a nice diversion.

A light romantic comedy. This is Becky's first lead role and she doesn't disappoint. They're not taking themselves seriously, like when someone is replace with a dummy.

Becky's really annoying, yet, you can't really hate her. Great cast and tongue-in-cheek humor. Recommended. ^_^

OMFG.... Becky's character is the most annoying character EVER! I mean. Gotta give some credits to the dorama for that. The other actors did a good/funny job as well (didnt know a thing bout Sanzu Sayuri.... well... shes pretty cute. hope to see more of her in the future); Well... bout the dorama itself.... having a annoying char as the protagonist is pretty unique but it didnt work out for me. The dorama is really "noisy" and there are waaaay to many exaggerating scenes (sometimes the doramas seems more like an anime than a dorama) and i dislike it. But in the end i guess i laugh pretty hard from time to time while watching this dorama... if one is looking for same laughs i recommend this one... otherwise stay away from this!

It's Becky! While this drama is actually more or less and parody or spoof, and makes fun of the characters in the story -it does get annoying and over-bearing after a while. Still, I think the drama wants you to feel this way and pushes for you to grow annoyed by the main character.

I have yet to finish this drama, but you really need to be in the mood to get through it. XD

although i knew the premise before hand i did not think it was going to take it to this extent...but even it gets a bit annoying it does have its own charm and i like it...the last two episodes so funny so different...just don't take this show to serious ..take it as is

I loved the plot and all the characters... It's rare to see such sympathic girl roles in doramas... xD~ They are really cute and the male actors also did a great job... Very professional, funny acting, which I totally enjoyed watching! ^.^v

Gotta love or hate Riri - but the overexaggeration of her character and her ridiculous misunderstandings made me laugh oftenly. I just hope people (in Japan) don't start to think that it's absolutely normal to share their bf's.

All I can say is Becky! Becky! Becky!!! She is so interesting as a actress....but this drama was really bad!!!!Plot tended to repeat it self with each episode......I don't recommend......

Very funny. Becky is hilarious and adorable. This is a series I've rewatched just because it's so cute and funny. (Also, I neeed Anna and Lily's apartment. I NEEEEEED IT.)
11. Comments by Mabelka [Rating: 7/10]
Hilarious is all you can tell about this drama. Becky is just crazy and I started to respect her for crating such difficult character as Riri. Very enjoyable to watch:)
12. Comments by pinkokoro [Rating: 4/10]
COMPLETE. actually, I'm yet to finish all the episode. it's pretty repetitive, and Becky playing the lead girl is really annoying. a very annoying character I say.

It's soooo good, sooo funny. You have to love stupid girl though, but Becky so good, she'll make you laugh for sure. This drama brings me happiness everytime.

A really funny, light comedy about a girl who's misunderstandings create a web around two people trying to be together.

Irritating to the highest level, but when it was finished I just felt something is now lacking in my life.

Started off pretty funny. But eventually gave up watching because I couldn't stand Anna's antics anymore.

Had it's funny moments but was often painful a la Becky. If you like her style you'll love this.

Had its moments but in the end found Anna-san too irritating to continue watching.
