1. Slow, but fairly watchable [Rating: 7/10]
It's painful to watch your favourite actor play second fiddle to a 50-something-year-old man and be rejected hurtingly by Matsu Takako who somehow sees more oomph in liking her -oh god- own father, albeit not one related by blood. I admit that Tamura Masakazu does exude a certain degree of charm, truth be said. But the nostalgic reflections on love, life, death and touching depiction of touching souls between an elder man and a younger girl cannot save the slowness and dryness of the drama. I fell asleep thrice through the series. Kusanagi's still a little raw and it comes across quite starkly in juxtaposition to Tamura who, after all, has Kimura Takuya (it has been said) looking to him for tips on acting. Unless one is really hard-up for a kinship-mixed-love story, cliches on the strength of love prevails over everything else, discussions of whales or simply for Takako, who, beautiful as usual, acts marvellously, my advice -stick away. Buy some other vcd if you can help it.

boring.. i thought.. hiro-san disappeared from the scene in 3 eps.. and the storyline was not to my liking.. i can't stand non-traditional relationships.. matsu and tamura..?! no way.. also tsuyopon was not impressive..
2. Comments by Amika [Rating: 6/10]
well.. the story sucks... i don't know.. the story of a father loving his step daughter just ain't my cup of tea.. if it wasn't for Matsu Takako i won't be interesting in buying this drama...

Kinda a strange relationship between Matsu's character with a much other man he called father since her birth, but can their relationship last and how will people think of that?

i thought it was kinda disgusting because the father and daughter fell in love with each other. even tho they arent blood related, it still seems like incest to me. yuck!

Watchable through 3 episodes. I found Matsu Takako to be very cute and likeable here, probably more than any of her other dramas.
7. Comments by katrinka [Rating: 3/10]
As much as I liked the actors. I cannot believe that anyone would fall with the man who raised her.

this drama is okay. Tsuyoshi has little bit of scenes, but i love his nerdy and sweet character.
