I really liked this drama! I thought it was realistic but it probably won't be liked by many because it is for a more mature crowd. (25-30+) The characters can be annoying but they are supposed to be annoying! LOL A great show for those going through older transitions in life. :)

This drama is about two 30 something women and about their work, marriage and sex-life, and there's inappropriate romance, shirtless jailbait, angsty gay booksellers, and Bun-chan, the most fabulous ex-military gay bartender in Japan.

Plus, Yonekura Ryoko! She is awesome!

Marathoned it in one weekend and loved it very much. Except the ending felt kind of rushed and unsatisfying. Still well worth watching.

I'm not exactly target audience, but thought it was good :). Really liked cast and characters, thou characters might not be all that likable (at least not all of em). Also liked this dorama style-wise, it had pretty realistic approach and it could be taken seriously, but still it and its characters had this not too serious feel in them also.

8/10 I found it to be funny and realistic. It is more for a mature (25+) crowd. I thought the characters were unique and I absolutely loved it!
