1. Good watch [Rating: 8/10]
Kanno Miho portrays both sides of her character with brilliance; Nagasaku Hiromi is charming and endearing as Hasumi; and what a charismatic Aida Kouki Tanihara Sousuke makes! The storyline is sometimes improbable and lacks flow, but I love the idea of a strong woman and forging your own path in life. Everything wraps up a bit too neatly and sweetly in the end but I enjoyed every minute of the ten episodes on offer.

Saki's outbursts got very annoying. The last blow-up in the hospital just made me uncomfortable to watch. That said, I did like this drama, and I liked how it ended. The coupling-up happened the way I thought it should from the beginning (no spoilers on that); the people I thought should be together wound up together and the ones who I didn't think made a good match didn't pair up. Hooray! Nothing worse than finishing a series and STILL not understanding how in the hell certain characters wound up together.

I would recommend this. Saki is kind of (okay, very) annoying, but the supporting characters are all great (except Masato, who's kind of a cartoon dick for most of the show, but he's redeemed. This is dorama, after all).

The best thing about this dorama is Kanno Miho, without doubts. Her performance is just brilliant. Besides that, the dorama itself is not believable and they kind of forced the robotic behavior of Saki. It was nice to notice how she slowly adapted to the different changes in her life and her relationship with other people. On the other hand there's the fight against the idea of a girl's only purpose of getting married just to be really happy, which was quite nice to see. Anyway this dorama just bored me a bit.

Once again this is a series I initially passed on. 2010 has been a year where I watched a lot that I never thought I'd watch, and I am far from disappointed. Magerarenai Onna is arguable one of the best series of 2010. The characters are all fantastic and the storyline is somewhat unique. But what really caught my attention was the complexities and quirks of Kanna Miho's character. She was hilarious, adorable, and oh so awesome.

if she knows so much about the law, if shes so smart....why cant she pass the bar exam........BUT, the show took a turn from annoying to pretty good, saki is wack...shes annoying (i hate that ally of justice type character) but the acting is good, and i can see her grow with each episode, and they shoulda just made it 10 episodes instead of 9 and a sp, but OH WELL.

Great characters - great slice of life story from a female perspective! Improbability of basic elements in the script and Masato�Ls unlikely personality changes spoil it a little. The leading ladies, Miho Kanno and Nagasaku Hiromi are outstanding! I like that the usual "a girl has to be married to be happy" life model is not forced upon the characters.

When I watched this dorama, the story reminds me of Kekkon Dekinai Otoko Dorama, they have same characteristic where the main character had complex characteristic, but those made the dorama interesting to watch, can't predict what will happen next, really high morale value :)

Real good drama! Kanno, Nagasaku, and Tanihara were all great (although Kanno's screaming got to be a bit much sometimes).

I would really like to see Kanno and Nagasaku work together again.

Great characters and fairly original storyline. The performances of each of the three leads are noteworthy. Nice ending to boot which are surprisingly hard to come by!

This drama wasn't that interesting for me but Kanno Miho is good, nice to see a drama where the leading lady wears glasses ! Nagasaku Hiromi did amuse me though.

I watched the whole drama and there are definitely aspects I appreciate that are unique from other jdoramas. But I got tired of Ogiwara's shutter opening...

Kind of hit or miss, but still watchable. Miho Kanno carries the show. (Miho Kanno carries most shows.)
