Based on the manga of the same title by, Atsuko Takakura. The story revolves around a woman (Itoh) working in a department store whose meager bust has earned her the nickname of "kabe onna" ("kabe" means "wall" and "onna" means "woman"). Unfortunately for her, a well-endowed "yama onna" ("yama" meaning "mountain") gets assigned to the same department, heightening her insecurity.

1. Ito Misaki Shines [Rating: 7/10]
Okay, I'll admit that I thought this show was going to be terrible, two of the most wooden actresses in Japan starring in a drama that has one of the stupidest synopsis's I've seen. This prevented me from watching the drama until it was subtitled to the 6th episode. Due to me being bored out of my mind one day I decided to give it a chance and see how truly bad it is.

Turns out it isn't bad, it's hilarious in fact with some great direction and clever writing. Fukada Kyoko reaffirms that there is no reason she should be acting in dramas but what's awesome is that Ito Misaki really has a coming out as a great comedic actress in this drama as the Kabe Onna, the drama completely revolves around her and that is a good thing. I think this is the first character she has played with some depth to it and she does well, hope she can breakout of her type casted 2D characters after this show.

Yeah the drama is advertised as just a bunch of boob jokes but most of the jokes are actually creatively done and consistently funny and when it gets dramatic it works because it focuses on the insecurities of Ito's character in general which allows the viewer to relate some what(I actually think girls will enjoy this one more than the guys due to this factor even though most people seem to think it's a "guys drama" for obvious reasons).

This review is based off of the first 7 episodes, I doubt my score/review will change unless something crazy happens like Ito's character being hit by a train thus allowing Fukada Kyoko's character to take the spotlight.

2. just UNIQUE !!!!!!!!!! [Rating: 10/10]
Usually I'd say : 'boobs ? -no thanks, I like 'em small !', but after 15 minutes this comedy turned out to be absolutely hillarious - I never laughed so much & so hearty before !!!!!!!!
This dorama is not only about 'boobs', no vulgar 'guy's-drama' and no hentai-stuff at all, so it never gets boring !!!
Often silly jokes (slapstick), but absolute lovely silly ( far, far away from being stupid), thanks to the magnificiant performance of the whole cast - just EXCELLENT !! You'll love them ALL !! - I DO !!!
Really the funniest comedy I've ever watched.
Sooooo lighthearted & beautiful........not to compare with any other jdorama, there are lots of funny doramas (jdoramedies), but this one is just at the top of all jdoramedies.......just UNIQUE !!!!!!!!!!

3. Misaki, Fukada.. great chemistry.. [Rating: 10/10]
ive been a fan of Itoh Misaki since Hotman 2.. and all of her dramas never failed me.. this drama proves it again.. now together with Kyoko Fukada.. it's my first time seeing her as an Jactress.. and she's cute.. anyway.. i do have problems in her acting though.. sometimes she's too much childish.. i dont know if its only her role in this drama.. so straight to the point about the drama plot?.. just simple it really a family drama although some of you disagree.. because of the BOOBS and stuff like that.. LOL.. but for me it's very close to a family drama.. and mix with comedy.. almost all the cast here did they're best in their roles. Samuel Samaniego of Quezon City, Philippines.

I actually didn't mind this drama? Sure it was all about boobs but it was quite funny in parts and Itoh Misaki's acting has indeed become less stiff! I'd recommend it for laughs~ I really liked how they developed the relationship between Aoyagi and Iguchi <3 I also love the ending theme by Exile (the piano version of it was really nice!)

5. Cheesy, but watchable. [Rating: 6/10]
A rather cheesy drama that feels like a giant chick flick. But, it's not entirely that bad. There are some funny moments, and Yama Onna Kabe Onna does have a good cast. Overall, I think it's an ok drama. I've seen better but I've also seen worse.

I'm not sure what to think about this drama. It stars two of the most popular Jdrama actresses currently - Itoh Misaki from "Densha Otoko" and Fukada Kyoko from "S.O.S". Itoh Misaki plays a self-conscious handbag saleswoman in an upper class department store who is getting older and wants to get married. Although beautiful, she feels conscious of her chest size. One day a new employee comes to work for the company, Mariya (Fukada Kyoko) who has a really large chest size.

The whole emphasis of this show is on the relationships between Mariya and Aoyagi. That part of the show is bearable, but the comparisons of chest sizes can be really embarrassing and downright inappropriate. I sometimes even wonder why these actresses took these roles.

Despite all of this, I still finished up the drama mainly because I wanted to find out who Aoyagi would end up with in the end. Sadly, the ending was a bit messy and like the rest of the series, very illogical.

i started watching this because Itoh Misaki was in it, but the lack of plot really killed a little of the enjoyment of this dorama. I really enjoyed the jokes and the characters, but since it lacked a solid main plot the viewers have nothing to look forward during the dorama. Itoh Misaki was really good in this but her Tsugaru-ben accent sounded really fake and Fukada KyokoLs character was funny and kawaii sometimes but very annoying at the same time. And poor Koike Eiko itLs the second dorama i watched with her and she allways ends up with the fat ugly guys with no money lol.
Anyway if you like light comedy with lots of boob jokes watch this.

A whole lot better than I had expected! Even with that silly premise, they managed to make a nice dorama, with lotsa funny moments, some good acting (honorable mentions for Koike Eiko and Itoh Misaki!) and an "older flavor" which I personally really dig (it actually reminded me of two old doramas I liked, "Style!" and "Shomuni"). The music was also very good throughout the whole thing, and I found it very entertaining. Oh, and the Aomori-ben was also pretty funny - besides, it happens to have a very similar intonation to my own italian dialect, LOL! Well done! :)

Again, one of those doramas revolving around DEPARTMENT STORES....please wud they stop doing this! it`s not entertaining! it`s the storyline, not so much the casts!. Like in MOTO KARE, it had great casts but the storyline which revolved around the DEPARTMENT STORE made it crap! There is only so much u can do with a storyline like this. And this stupid joke about small and large breasts.....not a joke worth stretching for the whole series....i really wudnt recommend this one.....

I really like Misaki Ito when she does comedies like this. I think FujiTvfs brand of comedy fits my taste perfectly. I thought at first that it will not be suited for me because of itfs title but it wasnft at all. Well, I guess it depends on onefs perspective. Not too much conflicts or whatsoever, and they added a little romance in the latter part.
8. Comments by venuskarura [Rating: 7/10]
Really enjoyed this show, mostly about nothing but it is refreshing to see it is about relationships between working female colleges etc rather than your average high school cheesy love dramas. i find the topic on breast in the first episode a little too sexist but they toned down a lot later which is more acceptable.
9. Comments by Eyeyore [Rating: 6/10]
still watching. Never have been Fukuda's fan as i have dreaded her bimbo acting but the theme is unique and realistic. The gags are really funny and cleverly done without without being vulgar or explicit. Forget about acting skills..........but do take note of any flying buttons !!

A really enjoyable drama~ I laughed a lot in this. Itoh Misaki's acting has improved! The supporting characters are also super funny!! I really liked how they developed the relationship between Aoyagi and Iguchi <3 And the setting of the Marukoshi store and bag department was great~

omoshiroii...or tanoshii...(i kept on mixing those two up); nonetheless, it's funny. too bad, i wanted the leading lady to end up with another guy but then it's muri...you'll pick up a thing or two about being a salesman.it's really nice.i'll give it a 8.5 if it's available...

It was pretty entertaining... nothing too remarkable though.

I never liked Ito Misaki, but she was okay here. Fukada Kyoko was the cutest though!

The 2nd half was more enjoyable than the 1st. I suppose that suggets that I enjoy watching romance more than boob jokes?

Funny how they manage to talk about boobs all the time without being too vulgar. And above all, AOMORI is well represented in the show, Aomori is my region, TSUGARU is theplace to be, the best place in the world! Tank you for its promotion!

Why does Kyoko Fukada always got the innocent girl character like some sort of look like dumb girl? I've watch many of her dramas, she always plays dumb characters...pity of her...In contrast, I like Misaki Itoh's FLARING NOSE!!! haha...

Can't really give it a proper score as I've only seen the first couple of eps and the end ^^;;; the show annoyed me a bit though, most of the characters seemed pretty shallow and I wasn't driven to wanna watch anymore.

I started to love Ito Misaki after this drama. It may looks like a typical comedy drama with slapstick jokes, but it's more than that, a light-comedy drama that gives you a nice feeling. Enjoyed this very much.

Very funny dorama, great theme song by EXILE. Misaki is very polite and down to earth in this dorama. But the dorky and over cute character of Fukada Kyoko earns the series an 8.

Supposed to be a comedy but not very funny, plot is quite bare for ep1 and the acting of the both the main characters is quite lackluster as usual. Dropped. Slow and Boring.

A few good jokes. If you're not offended by boobs jokes of course. A nice cast overall. Not something you'll remember in 5 years, but a good time waster.
