TV Station:Fuji TV
Duration:11 Episodes

Tokiwa stars as Tamura Nozumi, with a cheerful outlook in life, always choosing to believe in everyone. Fukatsu stars as Sakada Chiharu, an amanuensis (daisho) but goes way beyond her jobscope in carrying out her work. The duo met in a clinic where Sakada helps Nozumi get back at her boss for sexual harassment. Sakada sees a flair in Nozumi to be in the same line of work, but Nozumi is content with her job as a waitress.

In the drama, they are portrayed as a pair of 28-year-olds who can't wait to get married. Often, you'd hear them railing at each other "dakara kekkon dekinai yo, baka!!". However, despite their differences in character, they soon become the best of friends...

1. Superb Entertainment [Rating: 9/10]
This is Tokiwa Takako at her most charming. The overall comedy is punctuated by emotional scenes and subplots that range from touching to ridiculous. Fukatsu Eri's character was delighfully sassy and tough. It looked like Yamashita Tomohisa was born to play this part; i thought Ryuuta was one of the coolest characters, and the way he approached the girl he would end up marrying was priceless. The friendship between Nozomi and Chiharu becomes so close that they are suspected of being romantically involved with each other; they actually look as if they are about to kiss before they are interrupted, and afterwards, the ending seems to leave many loose ends although some things are resolved. This is a superb source of entertainment, and the theme song is sweet.

2. Could have been better [Rating: 8/10]
I think the performances by Tokiwa, Fukatsu and Jinnai were very good for there characters. But, the drama had so many sub-plots that would be introduced for 1 episode and then dropped, that it started to look like a spoof of a drama. It would have been a lot better with 2 or 3 main sub-plots. That would have allowed them to add more substance to their perfromances.

3. Excellent Drama [Rating: 9/10]
I have really been enjoying this drama (My First). The two main characters are wonderful and funny. The story lines were great. If anyone has the romanized lyrics to the them song, please tell me how I can get them.

4. A not too easy to understand drama [Rating: 4/10]
Only for Takako's fans. Quite difficult to understand at times. But interesting to watch. Not the kind of drama that makes you sleep.

All the fans of the original Manga "Kabachitare!" forgive me, but this is an absolutely great drama, despite the fact that it is almost completely disconnected from the original Manga.

Takanori Jinnai is the perfect cast for the Tetsujin-Fan boss of Sakaeda-san, I loved the scenes where he starts slipping into his Tetsujin dream world (BTW yes, the correct name of Eri Fukatsu's character is "Sakaeda", please fix that).

Also Eri Fukatsu who carries most of the whole drama with her quirky acting is just brilliant. I've seen this series now four times on TV and I still can't get enough of it.

The only downside of this drama is aside from YamaPi's little "side story" the rest was a self contained/per episode plot...so yea they were somewhat interesting but it was pretty much a repeat over and over. The whole time "relationship" between an airheaded laid back lady and a strict anal detective lady and how their powers combine to bring justice to the world! But even the cute Yamapi arcs couldn't get me to watch it all the way I ended up scrolling through the last few eps ^^;

A drama about the conditions many women face--to the point of extremity at times--and standing up for yourself and your life. Tokiwa and Fukatsu are hilarious, and the drama is a light-hearted one with a heavy topic. I like the funny moments best, of course--but that doesn't save the drama as a whole. The story doesn't progress. If you like crazy antics, this is OK. Not these actors' best drama, but they all did well.

bought it coz of okada yoshinori. but was pleasantly surprised by this unidentified-field-of-law they were focusing on. they werent exactly lawyers, but they do have the right to issue documents like lawyers. :) it was interesting, coz they were able to solve disputes & crimes with a mere piece of printed paper. :P would've loved it more if the cast showed more of themselves.

I thought this was a great Dorama. However, I missed the last episode. I will have to rent it just as soon as I can.

When I have viewed it I will post an update.

Well, I rented the last episode and was a little disappointed. I was hoping for a different ending for the two main female charcters.

Still, for being my very first drama. I liked it.

Oct 2003: Sometimes very difficult to digest, cos i had to think twice to figure it out what they were trying to express. Eri and takako's acting were superb! Love those scenes when the policewoman appeared although it was quite pointless. Very funny!

Umm... a friend lent it to me... my mom's friend, actually. Didn't really like it. I guess it's because of my age that I don't really understand what I was watching... as I was only 10 when i watched this. Please understand... *sniff*... haha.

the banter between the two women is fast and witty.. takako and eri did a really great job in convincing viewers about their roles.. yamashita tomohisa looks great in the show.. and tsumabuki satoshi was refreshing..
12. Comments by takuya_angel [Rating: 9/10]
I really, really like this show! The two leads have perfect chemistry and both are my 2 fave actresses! Their character is sooo kawaii! This show sure cracks me up as the plot is hilarious! Yamapi is totally KAKKOII!
13. Comments by ryce [Rating: 7/10]
Interesting insight on the job of an amanuenses... Comedy with a few touching moments... the antics by the 2 female leads are hilariously nonsensical... :) The short appearances by Tsumabuki Satoshi was a big bonus.
14. Comments by x_XJules [Rating: 2/10]
I was actually subbing this show. I think we made it 3 episodes in and then gave up. It's really hard to sub a show that sucks. Probably only Yamapi fans would watch this.
15. Comments by Akiiness [Rating: 7/10]
I quite liked how the story followed 2 heroines. It's quite encouraging! It's good for laughs and the casts were awesome. Fuka-chan was really good at being sassy. ;)

Have watched only Toyohara's two episodes... he plays a lovable slimeball well. Still hoping the subtitle project will be completed so I can watch the whole drama.

This drama is about Girl Power. I like both Eri Fukatsu and Takako Tokiwa, they really tells us the girl power! A really good duo, and they are really funny too

I bought this for Takako, wasn't dissapointed but I expected something better than this. But of course, just seeing Takako is worth everything.... ^_^

Fukatsu Eri is hilarious! But the story plot is not appealing if you're not interested in Japanese laws...
