1. A shocking ending! [Rating: 8/10]
What "Asunaro Hakusho" was in 1993 bringing together young Japanese actors that would become one of Japan's top actors and actresses today, in 1995 another drama brought together a fine cast. The drama was called, "Wakamono no Subete". Another Japanese Generation Y drama which I consider one of my favorites of all time.� Loved it so much that I still wear the"Stay Gold" Wakamono no Subete t-shirt to this day. The theme song "Tomorrow Never Knows" by Mr. Children pretty much encompasses what this dorama is about. Friendship, betrayal, and much more. Very good performances from the cast and a drama that put Kimura Takuya and Suzuki Anju ahead in the popularity polls for top entertainer on geinou magazines at the time. It has it's dark moments (well, it is a dark drama) but the surprise ending will shock any drama watcher. I'm not at all into dark dramas but this one, I'm not sure why I like it...I just do. A very dark and intriguing drama with an ending that will yank out your heart and stomp on it!- KNDY [note: The book version ends on a happier note].

2. I loved this drama [Rating: 9/10]
I loved this drama. I think it captured how young people of today agonize over different things. I mean, it's hard times, huh?
I could feel the pain of characters because I myself have been through those pains (or feeling those pains).
I also loved Takeshi....Takeshi was so cute..♡
I was also surprised to see Eri Fukatsu and Takao Osawa in this..

kook05/ This drama was actually broadcasted in 1994, not 1995.

3. Wonderful [Rating: 9/10]
It is a very good drama with a strong storyline and impressive depiction by the actors. All the young actors handled their characters well. It has an unexpected but typical ending. However, a very nice ending indeed. Don't miss it whether you are a fan of any actor in this drama or not cos you will become one after watching it.

A Dorama about twens who are figuring out theri directions in life. The setting is generally dark, but in a fine and subtle way. Had a very slow and dragging start but caught up in the midlle to get really good in the last episodes. For me, it was not only entertaining but a bit of a lesson in life. Very good actors of that time (especially very cute Fukkatsu Eri and young Kimura Takuya with very good acting) and a nice soundtrtack from Mr. Children. It is a timeless show as all ups and downs they had seemed very plausible to me even now.

It deals with many issues that a lot of young adults go through.. As a young adult myself, I could really relate to the drama and the issues the characters go through..I also loved the theme song! Mr. Children's 'Tomorrow Never Knows." Though occasionally boring at times, a good drama that is worth the time.

Kimura was awesome in this dorama! First time I saw him as well nothing and yet you can feel his need to survive the cruelties of this world. I watched this raw and yet I understood what the drama wanted to say. A better vehicle for him at that time than Asunaro..

Aiyo! This story had me glued to my tv, but the ending made me sleepless for 2 days until I discovered that there's a book being sold in another website. Downloaded this and it's as hard to find as Konya wa~ It took me ages to download this stuff at clubbox.

Excellent, they don't make drama's like this nowadays, make sure you watch the ending right up to the close of the credits.

I watched one episode and lost interest. It just doesn't feature a solid enough story outside of the typical to pull me in.

Pretty good drama, although I thought they went a little overboard on the violence. Kimura and Hagiwara both very good.

The first Kimutaku drama I've ever seen. It's an intense drama with great soundtrack too.
