Very Dark Drama, very similiar Aura with byakuyakou but without Love Factor. And i must say this drama even better than byakuyakou. because every character have their own role and they done it very well. Kenichi becomes a great Zeni Geba, he really have a talent. Mimura are beautiful and talented too, both of them did really well in this drama. *SPOILER* The Final episode was the climax emotion, they give us a different Ending version if futaro doesn't choose the wrong path. Really Sad Ending But I love it very much. I almost cry when see that happy ending scene on that version.
SOUNDTRACK: Sayonara [Kariyushi 58]: 5 (Bad... Bad.. really don't have a chemistry with this drama, the Lyrics?? maybe yes, but The entire song with Major Tone?? definitely the worst ending song that i ever heard. But this is still a good song, If you see it on MTV)

This is one quite dark dorama mixed with soap opera lines. This is the really sad story of Futaro, a past that turns him onto a money-crazy devil who enters a rich family in a quite original way. The ending was really good and it made me cry, but Furato's words were so true. The main question is: "Which one is more important: money or heart?". This made me think a lot, maybe because of the European crisis we are actually living. Yeah, the heart is important and we don't really need large amounts of money, but money is still important to live. Performances were really good overall, buy my favorite was Saito Ryusei's (young Futaro), his despair is just superb. Although the dorama itself has some weird and unbelievable "soapish" details, I would watch it again and recommend it for sure!

Matsuyama Kenichi as expected very2 suitable played in this dorama also in Death Note... How ever this dorama taught me not to be crazy by the money... the most important things in this life is "HEART"... so if you want to watch this dorama be prepared not to be affected by the last episode last word that Matsuyama Kenichi said... this dorama made curious to see what's the plan of Matsuyama Kenichi to gain money... pretty good to watch.... :)

Much darker than most dramas I watch but the acting and directing is top notch. I instantly became a fan of Matsuken after seeing this. Mimura continues to be one of my favorite actresses. I wish she would do more dramas. One of my most favorite, memorable scenes in Jdrama history happens during the climax of the series.

easily the most messed-up drama I've ever seen but also one of my absolute favorites. It's done really beautifully, it's unique and INSANE and so well done.

Some parts were very strange and the music was a bit annoying, but I still liked watching it overall. Matsuyama Kenichi's acting always surprises me.

Great drama!! Lot of really good performances here, Matsuyama and Mimura were great, but I loved Shiina Kippei, this may be my favorite role of his.

Now this is a drama, that is deliciously satisfying my appetite for intelligent plots. Kenichi was simply brilliant here.

bad - After reading the comments I had hopes for this, but it is so very badly written it boarders "trash funny".

Probably the best dorama this year. Really, it was something exeptional. I liked the way they changed the story from original manga. And the ending was so bittersweet. It was ages since I had this pleasure watching japanese dorama. And Matsuken - as allways superb.
2. strawberryfzz
So dark but so good. Such beautifully acted and terribly underrated. Matsuken and Mimura are absolutely fantastic and have unbelievable chemistry.
