1. Fantastic!! [Rating: 9/10]
I brought this VCD because of Yutaka...but the entire show left me in tatters.....it was so GOOD!!So meaningful!A lot of 'love',''ai',but only in theory.You will only understand if you watched.I watched it onve 1/2 year ago,then I was feeling..'Nah,nothing spectacular'.I just finish watching it again...only then did I really get the meaning of the whole show.It's moody,huanting and sometimes creepy,but there's a lot of fun elements too between the characters.Yutaka was fantastic,he didn't give a thought about 'idol image' and gave a terrific performance.(This was post-beach boys mind you).Yutaka and Domoto and the only ones that I really feel can act in many various characters and be so convincing for male artists.But Sorimachi's still my fave,thought he can only act "one-wayed",but that's absolutely enough...sheer joy to watch him act.This Drama is so good,it ranks as 2nd for me,after Beach boys and just ahead of Summer Snow.

2. A very meaningful drama [Rating: 8/10]
There are altogether about 11 to 12 different stories in this drama. I don't claim to understand all of them but those I understood I find them very very meaningful. These stories discuss the true meaning of love, how feelings could change due to circumstanaces, so is there true love such that it won't change with time or will washing the toilet and doing daily chores affect it?

I like the one on clone best, it is sooo meaningful. There are much to ponder about. But of course, this is defintely not a drama for everyone.

3. An Acceptable Drama ^_^ [Rating: 7/10]
Weird. Light-hearted ridiculous comedy in the beginning. Sad and dark endings. Yet, superb, amazing and realistic acting from Yutaka, Yamazaki, and Maki Sakai which really save the show. Great background musics. Overall, an acceptable drama for me!!^^ As a Takenouchi fan, I have to say the childish Wataru Noa is my #2 favorite role Yutaka ever played, next to Ryunosuke in Dekichatta, and ahead of Takumi in Hoshi no Kinka^^

I never knew what went on in this drama. This is also one of the non mainstream dramas. Please watch it if you like Love Complex.

This is probably the most thought-provoking drama I have watched. A lot of it was very meaningful and insightful, but also a lot toward the end left me confused. It also moved too much away from storytelling and the principal characters for my liking, so I wasn't particularly attached, although I imagine others could find some of the stories and the ending deeply moving.

Yamazaki was stellar throughout the whole series. Every episode was original. It was actually quite a hopeful ending... I really don't know what to say about this drama...

I wish there would be more dorama like this. Not moralistic and meaningful. Great. Sometimes a bit too much anyway.

The only interestine point is takenouchi's acting. Plot is boring and characters are way out of the world.

Not your usual "linear" drama with a standard plot. Nevertheless, I really liked it.
