This is the first morning drama I have watched so I can't really compare it to others, but I really loved this so maybe I should watch more. The main reason I have avoided the morning dramas is because they are loooooong, well that could be good or bad depending on how much you like it, but the reason I wanted to watch Ohisama was because I really like Inoue Mao but I felt that she's never really been in anything that great. I had a problem in knowing she will probably always be remembered for her role in Hana Yori Dango, which was obviously extremely popular, but personally I don't care much for it. Anyways, this has definitely fixed that; this is a perfect show for her, with a very different type of audience, and that is really noticeable when she hosted the red team on the Kouhaku shortly after Ohisama finished airing.

As for the show itself; I really like World War II era Japan so that was a big plus. It's about some pretty average people and like most family dramas it gets overly sappy every other second, but it thankfully avoids being overly traumatic. The main complaint I have is actually the modern part where the main character is old and telling the story; it's stupid and an annoyance, and every time they come back to it I get angry. They should have just stuck with the story as it is rather than trying to frame it around some gimmick and it would have been near perfect.

Ohisama, is big drama, a lot of episodes but it's well worth it. Ohisama is split into sections called "Weeks" each week contains 5 episodes, that last about 15 minutes. This drama was really intresting and fun to watch, as it got near the end the drama did tend to drag and the ending wasn't that great but it was still a very good drama and I recommend watching it for sure! :D

Not compelling viewing ,the pre-war and war years were the most interesting , it's amazing that people just cheered when the men went off to war instead of asking questions whether it was a bad idea.They also could have done a much better job of aging the cast.Terawaki Yasufumi was good as the all too perfect father though.

I liked the arc of the story going from pre-war thru to post-war Japan.Cast was okay, nothing great though. It got better ratings than "Gegege no Nyobo". IMO "Gegege, , ," is a much better drama.
