1. Excruciatingly funny [Rating: 10/10]
Koi no bakansu really knows how to turn the screws - a tightly written comedy about a womanizer who juggles three woman, and almost gets away with it. This is one of the rare things that are laugh-at-loud funny, assisted by a taut story line in which the main character's lies become a terrifying balancing act.

2. A classic charmer [Rating: 10/10]
This universal favorite is painfully difficult to locate, the delicious comedy of a salaryman playboy trying to juggle three girls at the same time. Truly funny, and arresting from stop to finish.

I thought the main character's antics were funny but I could never understand how he managed to attract those girlfriends to him in the first place. Especially liked the ending, lol.

One of my favorite comedies. You have to see it just to witness all the hilarious scenarios that Akashiya Sanma's character ends up in...and how he weasels his way out of them.

Akashiya hilarious walking a tightrope between three different women! Anju Suzuki is easy to overlook, but I thought she was great as well.

This is easily one of my favorite comedy dramas. Full of humor, an engaging story, and an excellent cast, it's a shame that this drama isn't more known.
