The drama is light and has some cute/nice moments, but overall it was the most annoying show I�fve seen in a long time. I�fm sure I remember enjoying Aibu Saki in her previous dramas, so I�fll blame this completely on the character: Oba Nobuko was terribly annoying. I couldn�ft stand her. She was fine in the first few episodes, or perhaps I just hadn�ft realized yet how annoying she really was. Eventually I began to cringe whenever she opened her mouth. It�fs a good thing Aibu Saki is adorable. If I were watching her for the first time, I�fd think her talentless and overly exaggerated as an actress. Even Moko was annoying. What was the director thinking making them act like this? I didn�ft find either endearing.

The other problem I had with this show was Buuko�fs constant rebounding. She would rebound – and we�fre talking like 80 pounds here – in less than a week, and then lose it in that much time. Give me a break.

I�fm not sure I would recommend this drama. If you like the leads, then watch for their sake, otherwise skip it.

Average dorama which seems to last forever and seems to never really get to the point. At first I found Oda Nobuko really annoying (and yeah she really is!!) and I thought that was due to Aibo Saki's acting skills: they seemed far too overreacted, but by the end you'll notice she's SO expressive and cute. Anyway the story is just surrealistic and impossible: rebounding every now and then, so quickly, that didn't make sense at all. Hayami Mokomichi was not bad, and I simply adore Kuriyama Chiaki's role. I wouldn't recommend this one to anyone, I mean, there are other simple love stories much better than this one.

I didn't watch every episode though. Feels like a carousel, going round and round. The magazine editor reminds me of Vogue's New York editor, Anna or better known "The Devil Wears Prada".

Very funny and interesting drama. Very comical acting by both the lead actor and actress. Every episode ends with a new cake invented by the lead actor that really look delicious.

There were some cute moments, but otherwise I found both main characters terribly annoying and the whole rebound premise rushed and unbelievable.

Loved it! Another great drama with Aibu and Mokomichi. Though it had cheesy moments, it never stopped making me laugh!

Cute at times, annoying at times, without Saki Aibu ... would have been a 4.

Formulaic and a little exaggerated at times, but has its funny moments.
