Featuring Yosuke Eguchi as a young emergency room doc and Nanako Matsushima as his unappreciative assistant also fails. It is just one medical emergency after another interrupted by bits of silliness such as the scene where a doctor accidentally smokes the marijuana cigarettes confiscated from a tattooed character while the staff is busy helping the thug "give birth" to the dozens of heroin-filled condoms he has swallowed.

1. Superb Japanese version of ER! [Rating: 10/10]
Great actors, actresses in this twistful drama with many interesting, hilarious, touching and sad subplots/cases which truly demands the best acting skill to set the mood right for this kind of drama series! Yosuke Eguchi simply has the charisma and is irresistable to complete viewing of this drama. Not a boring show at all as what Anonymous has commented in his/her Synopsis review. To summarise, Yosuke stays in 24 hrs emergency division for the purpose of attending to his very beloved wife in ICU who's in coma for period of time..Nanako's care towards her patient and eventually Yosuke when he's has got brain tumour which puts his life in danger while struggling to save his wife..twisted plot when his friend/colleague tries to frame Yosuke for causing a police officer's death due to negligence in an attempt to get promoted..Yosuke's boss attempt to oust him out of the medical career..Nanako's attempt to save a life in a stranded lift...and many more...what more do you want out of this 12 episodes of superb drama with touching music? Watch it!!

2. Nice! [Rating: 8/10]
24-hour Emergency Ward, as Nanako fan above stated, is quite the Japanese ver. of E.R. It's more like action drama that involves a lot of quick actions or where characters move a lot. Although, there would be parts in the series where the usual dramatic momentum happens in every occasions. It also comes to a suprising conclusion that proved my predictions wrong. I thought Shindo sensei and Kosaka sensei are go...nevermind. I don't really want to spoil the fun for you heheh. ^_^

It is a great change from typical love and family dramas. Nanako is great. A Japanese version of ER. Not the best but certainly is worth watching.

Not to forget about the Part II of this series which is now out in the market! Sad to say that Nanako no longer acts in the part II series.

Almost like E.R. it just better than that. But why there is no love story between Nanako and Eguchi?

One of the best medical dramas, if not the best, I've seen so far. Even though I don't know how the ER really works, I can sense that it's very realistic in a way that the doctors and nurses aren't bombarded with work 24/7. I also enjoyed Shindo (Eguchi Yosuke)'s little side story; a romantic side of him, which was nice. :) I liked the casts a lot too; out of all three series, I think Shindo interaction with this group is most enjoyable.
2. Comments by Jeanxi [Rating: 9/10]
Very impressed! Started kind of slow at first but the intensity increased substantially as the plot developed. Each episode has its own plot but still contributes to the overall plot of the series. Really enjoyed the performance by Eguchi Yosuke and Matsushima Nanako. I did not like Eguchi from Tokyo Love Story, but this totally change my perspective of him.

Mac 2004: Bought it bcos i really like the part 2. But i was dissapointed though, the story is just average, nothing special about those emergency cases, too much flashback, the outfit not nice....( when i haven watch this, i imagined how nice nanako will be in doctor suit, but it turned out.....) will give higher marks if i never watched part 2 bfor.

Ack, avoid this. I couldn't even watch it all the way through. If you're a hard core ER fan you'll probably like this though, but it was just one medical emergency after another. If you like hospital dramas, there are plenty of others that are better. Bleach.

It is a great change from typical love and family dramas. A Japanese version of the popular US show ER. Not the best drama but certainly is worth watching. Great performances all around. Nanako was great as usual.

A very well paced drama with lots of strong casting. Simply love to watch Egushi Yosuke role in this drama as a doctor. The role fits him pretty well.

can't recall the actual plots already...but i believe the show must be quite good as it motivates me to want to watch the 2 sequals after dat...

Japanese version of ER. Maybe I am too much of a fan of the american ER from NBC. I just find this drama is a unsuccessful copy-cat.

the story is good... season 1 was a time during nanako's peak before she took a break, but in comparison she was better in season 3.

Great drama about life and death. Eguchi carried this showed. The development of Matsushima's character interestingly parallels the development of her career at the time.
2. Strega
The 1st series of the trilogy. Eguchi Yousuke and Nanako Matsushima did a good job here.
3. Milu
