1. I love "Noriko & Kisha" ! [Rating: 9/10]
I just felt inlove instantly with the couple in this JDorama. They are Noriko (Tomoko Yamaguchi) & Kisha (Toru Nakamura). Noriko is an active, full of spirit woman and Kisha is a cold, mature, quiet man. Whenever they met, it's so romantic. Love to see more JDoramas from Tomoko & Toru together !

3. Slow! [Rating: 4/10]
I didn't like the ending. A bit too realistic. I think dramas should have some elements of dreaminess and fairy tale qualities.

An average script with good acting performances. Yamaguchi Tomoko was good but I like her better in Long Vacation.

I thought this type of drama would be right up my alley because it reminded me of "Koi wa Tatakai" and "Koi no Chikara," but it turns out that by the end of the first episode I lost interest. The characters played are too stock and the story just of lagged me on. I might try to watch more--only to see if I am wrong--still seems boring though.

This drama is really good at the beginning. I couldn't stop watching it. However, when it comes to the last episode, the plot somehow hangs. I would give this drama a '9' if not for the ending. Sigh...disappointed. Ahh...why must the ending be like that? Sigh...Again, the only character that I like are Toru Nakamura and Yamaguchi Tomoko.

I couldn't continue watching..I was bored and stopped watching after episode 4.
Although I like Yamaguchi Tomoko and Nakamura Toru, I just couldn't find anything interesting in this drama..:(

An average script with good acting performances. Yamaguchi Tomoko was good but I like her better in Long Vacation. A lot of fan like this one. In my opinion, this is just an average show.

This drama was over-hyped. Its has its exciting moments but I don't like the ending. Both gals end up with nobody.
6. Comments by cyberarts [Rating: 7/10]
The worries of women's chances of getting married as she gets older.

Wonderful, natural and attractive acting of Tomoko Yamaguchi. I didn't watch many Japanese dramas before. But this one really attracts me a lot both by its good-looking cast and natural storyline approaching to the real life and reality although it is pity of seperation between the lovers...
2. arian
It was a beautiful J-dorama, the story about love and friendship . Although it has a bitter-realistic ending, Noriko and Kisha show us the spirit and integrity to achieve a better live as honourable human being.
3. for3vergirl
My first Tomoko's dramas. She's so funny and I love her since this one. The drama is cute, plus it's about Christmas with Mariah Carey's perfect theme song "All I want for Christmas is You".
