1. Another beautiful TOKIWA performance [Rating: 8/10]
She once again shows how great an actress she really is. She always gives such captivating performances, she never looks as if she is playing a part. Her role is so genuine you almost feel like you are spying on someones real life. She gives a great performance as the young woman forced to sell herself to try and help her brothers plight. She shows how far she was willing to degrade herself to make money for the operation. SHe also shows how high price she pays, in losing respect for herself.

Not too bad. Good performance from Takako but a bit sad in the middle.

Good acting from Nakai kun and the song of Oda Kazumasa is great. But that's all. I hated the fact that Tokiwa throught all the monet she earned from prostitution riding bike with Nakai on Rainbow Bridge. So stupid, give this money to children starving in Africa or anywhere but don't trough it!!! So stupid. But Tokiwa always plays the stupid girl, that's a shame. Anyway Tokiwa had sex with Nakai and Kimutaku in dramas, which one is better? shoul ask her in a bistro smap show!

Takako steals the show here. I think it was the hype during those days to cast Jpop band memebers as main characters, but masahiro was still good in acting. This show is very romantic and cool, but I don't understand the idea behind running in white plain t-shirts all over tokyo in the opening, what kind of artistic idea was going through the idiot that made it?! overall a pretty good show

This is another dorama that Tokiwa co-star is a member of SMAP. I thought the two leading actors didn't have much chemistry together. This drama was OK but Tokiwa Takako's acting skill out shined Nakai, this will be a great drama if Yutaka Takenouchi takes over the leading role! Imagine that! It was OK...but not great.

(Again...) pretty standard dorama. Tokiwa Takako is veeery hot. BUT the story lost the power in the middle. The overall screenplay lacked the humorous part for such a dorama type. One of the lamest and most unspectacular endings i've ever seen.

Good story line. I like the whole story, Nakai and Tokiya match was a good one. They both went through alot before they could get together in the end, a happy ending.
