Disappointing. This drama would have been so much better if it was 10 or 11 episodes instead of 6, as it would have allowed for more development.
If I hadn't read the manga (which is a hundred times better than the drama), I think some parts would have been confusing / unnatural.

I would not recommend this drama. But I would recommend the manga, because I do think that the idea of Cat Street is pretty interesting.

Loved the theme song by Ikimono gakari. :)

What an annoying dorama... such a good story, nice casting, beautifuls songs and it all goes down cuz the way they decided to put all that in the dorama. It's the most slow paced dorama ever (and its only six episodes)! The same flashback goes on and on... Damn... was it really necessary. Maybe they could put something else in it... dunno... maybe some everyday life of the friend (or something like that... so they could change the friendiship betwen the guys in the school more realistic). I got to know that this story is based on a manga.. well im not really into anime/manga stuff... but i guess i would be probably be right when saying that the manga version is way better than this (so... try that).

I'm a bit confused with this dorama. I liked it and I didn't like it. I think plot and characters are far more fitable in a manga than in a dorama. Keito clearly grows up and improves, but I cannot quite understand and believe the trigger that turned her into a social introvert, it is too exagerated (or poorly explained, not sure). The best thing was to see Namase Katsuhisa in a quite different and more serious role; he was great as always. Give this dorama a try since it is quite short (6 ep).

I was a big fan of the manga, which probably made me quite disappointed in the drama. Although I was alright with the characters in the drama, and I liked most of the actors and actresses, but I found the drama a little too short, and some of the parts were a little unrealistic. Some episodes were also kind of slow, so I was sometimes bored when watching the drama.

LOL. I knew ahead of time that this dorama would be aimed at a younger audience than me but I decided to check it out because 1.) I like HYD and 2.) because again we have another awful season of doramas.
Ugh, the series is pretty horrible. I only watched half of it and that's enough for me. It'd probably be good if you are 9-16 years old.

Give this drama a chance it is really not bad. Acting is pretty decent for this younger group of actor. Story line was pretty interesting. It is not outstanding but worth watching because the story different from typical drama.

Strong friendship~bond formed among four individuals who each faced past disappointment and together overcome their fears.
Nice 6ep. drama - touching moments throughout. Tanimura Mitsuki ---> Horikita Maki. whatcha think? O_o

it's a cute little mini drama. :) it didn't fulfill the potential i saw for it, but it is only 6 episodes after all. definitely something to watch if you've watched everything else and are waiting for new series.

I loved Cat Street, I just wish it was slightly longer therefore hopefully more like the manga. Also, I wish the relationship between Keito and Koichi a bit more developed and the ending was kinda abrupt.

I had one big issue. I did read the manga and I loved it. I cannot forgive what they did to the characters. How come from a manga I enjoyed so much became such a boring drama... unbelievable.

Nice theme song by Ikimonogakari. The drama is good, a light hearted one, due to it's short episode count it doesn't go deep into any of the plot happenings, that is why it gets a 7 from me.

idk i honestly didnt think it was as bad as ppl say it is, maybe if i read the manga i might have different opinions but as far as i can see, it was a short and to the point series

omg. this show is awesome. its a little too dramatic for me (duh its a drama) but it was still good. i love ishiguro hideo. even thought hes not really part of the main cast :)

Interesting topic, poor execution. Acting is probably okay but the drama would have been much better if it had dealt better with certain issues.
15. Comments by katsup [Rating: 2/10]
This drama was just really awful. Sad thing is I had really low expectations before I even watched it. The manga is really 10000x better.

Not many people like this but I was pleasantly surprised. A bit if a dark/teary theme and manga was better but this was also good.

really good short drama although the ending was a little anti climactic...but still a really good series
18. Comments by wanderingfish7 [Rating: 8/10]
The story is pretty good, the casting is just soso, I am going to read the manga, a little bit to short.
