1. Insightful drama [Rating: 8/10]
This romantic comedy raises some realistic and practical issues which couples encounter when they are planning for a wedding. The beginning of the story is really ludicrous because Mari and Otaki fall in love at first sight and almost immediately decide to get married. However, if you can look beyond the unconvincing beginning, the rest of this drama is actually pretty enjoyable and insightful as well. Yutaka shows great comic skill and looks really different from his usual 'cool guy' roles.Takako,on the other hand, is as adorable as ever.
Music is not that memorable but overall, this drama deservesa thumbs-up !

2. Pretty Bland.... [Rating: 6/10]
Well...the story is quite bland..and what makes it worse is that the role that Yutaka has been given leaves him no space to perform,though he still put in a commendable performance.Takako tried too hard to be cute....these together with a umimpressive anime-like OST will leave you with no impressions after the show..the story is as predictable as a Disney happily-ever-after tale but which will nevertheless entertain you on certain occasions,especially if you are a fan of Yutaka or Takako.

3. Hilarious but no twist [Rating: 6/10]
Quite fun to watch but not a show I will watch a second time. Not romantic at all because there is no development of feelings, they just got together just like that. And they quarreled and got back together, I can't feel their love at all. There are a number of funny parts but don't expect to be touched.

4. Very funny [Rating: 8/10]
I would agree with the previous reviews. The first episode is pretty lame that they meet and instantly decide to get married but beyond that its very enjoyable with a lot of funny scenes. I bought it to go with my TOKIWA collection but I must say everyone really did a very good job as their characters.

5. Good Chemistry! [Rating: 7/10]
I liked watching Yutaka and Takako in this drama. Their families are at loggerheads throughout the whole drama but they get to live happily ever after.

The first few episodes although laughable were quite dull, But the real gem here, is again the last episode. VERY satisfying end with HAPPY TEARS all over. Great performances by Takenouchi Yutaka as a perfect NERD ! He's so clueless sometimes and you can't help feeling sorry for him. Tokiwa is as good as usual. Brilliant performances come from the older generation, four elders who play both side's parents. Now, that's GREAT acting! Nogiwa Yoko is a very good actress who played Tsukikage Sensei in "Garasu No Kamen/ Glass Mask". Takenouchi Yutaka and Tokiwa Takako are quite good. I enjoy the drama.

Get ready for some good laughes. I really like Takenouchi Yutaka's role in
this drama- he is a lot more out-going. Even though some have said his
role is a bit "low-IQ", I still prefer it over a "stand-offish" cool attitude he
has in most of his dramas.

The first episode is pretty cheesy, from the instant proposal to the food fight at the end. But after that it's pretty good. The real stars are Yoko Nogiwa and Tamao Nakamura as the two mothers. They were hilarious!

Some funny szenes with a have-to-watch feeling, but the plot is so unrealistic and sometimes annoying.
