1. Good Drama [Rating: 10/10]
A unique tale of extra-matrital affair and family values/ties which is really worth watching. Nanako has performed well in her role as a rebellious woman against her father as a result of causing the death of her elder brother when she was young. Toyota Maho (Shiina Kippei's wife in the drama) was a poor victim of this affair but has shown her best in this drama who fought hard enough to get her husband back. Not the usual expected kind of monotonous boring drama but with twists enough to glue you till the end of the show, although you may need the patience to watch thru' the 1st couple of episodes. Recommended!

This is one of those early Nanako show. Nanako did a great job and the supporting cast is great. The story line is typical Japanese drama plot�c

I am really fond of sordid love stories, affairs, forbidden love and such, and normally I don't concern myself very much with any moral issues, but this time I was having a hard time accepting what I felt to be despicable treatment of a girl who seemed to be about as perfect a wife as humanly possible. So much so, that when they arrived at the inevitable silly revenge schemes, I found myself rooting for the the "villian." This drama had put me in a very weird, dark, moody place. It felt too personal for comfort, but somehow it was also intriguing and addicting, and I couldn't stop watching it.

Jumping to the end, I really appreciated the happy ending that also succedded in alleviating my moral outrage. It really would have all added up to be nearly perfect in my eyes, but with one huge exception. There is a really stupid plot twist two thirds of the way through or so. It's so incredibly stupid (and unoriginal too) I could quite easily completely hate this series. I suppose that for such a stupid plot twist, it was handled pretty well, and was basically responsible for the ending that I was happy with. So I guess I will have to begrudgingly forgive it somewhat.

This drama is nice. The storyline didn't only focus on Nanako and Kippei, however a large portion on Nanako's family too. It gives a warming and touching feeling on how the family overcome all the problems. They really love their family but didn't dare to express their feeling. This drama really enlighted me that we should express our feeling to our family, our friends, our companion rather than keeping them inside our heart. With a nice a drama theme song and a fine script, I rated 8 stars to Sweet Season.

Intense and enjoyable, the only thing I didn't like was the old amnesia trick. Fantastic cast , this is my favourite Nanako drama.
