TV Station:NTV
Duration:11 Episodes

Are you afraid of heights? Why? Is it just acrophobia? Or, perhaps as a very young child you witnessed the murder of your father as he was pushed off the veranda of your apartment building and now have a deathly fear of going up to the 20th floor of any building! Psychoanalyst and counselor Kyosuke Kai (Yutaka Takenouchi), a bit quirky with compulsions of his own, ends up finding out more than just the standard medical reasons for his patient's emotional problems. So, rather than just practice counseling Dr. Kai becomes in effect a detective as well. Join Dr. Kai and examine his case files to learn more about his patients and what makes them tick...or crack.

1. Very Serious Drama [Rating: 7/10]
After Shotgun Marriage, where we saw a comedic side to Yutaka, he takes on a more serious, gloomier role in this drama. This type of role is what we saw him in before; a serious guy, with serious or gloomy themes, like "With Love" and "Inanimate World". However, the theme in this drama is about psychotic disorders, and that's a bit disturbing to some if that's not what they were expecting. I do give credit to the writers for bringing out quite a few disorders and sticking as close to reality as possible on them. Yutaka tackles these patients and although I think there's always going to be a debate on touchy issues such as this, overall they did a good job on the subject, and I personally thought he suited the role.

2. definitely not @ his best [Rating: 6/10]
not one of the better dramas by him. it has a nice story especially at the ending. everything kind of builds up to the end...but i find that he only has a few expressions in this drama. maybe it is because having watched good luck where kimura has much more colorful expressions that i was expecting the same thing. i still prefer his older dramas like beach boys and long vacation.

3. Too depressing! [Rating: 7/10]
This drama has good performances from the cast. Yutaka was quite good but this might be a bit too depressing for many folks! Especially with war in the middle east, depressed world economy and now SARS! The rating shows. I think most fans prefer more cheerful/funny doramas.

This drama is very different from the usual Jdramas i've seen. As a student of psychology i enjoyed the subject matter very much. However the mood was a little too dark and sometimes the pace was quite slow. Perhaps that's why not many enjoyed this drama.

Initially, I hated the theme song perhaps because of the opening clip that accompanied it. It was very depressing and it was the first time i heard Ken Hirai's voice (need time to get used to it). However, as the drama progresses, I find myself singing to the song and understood why the opening clip was as boring as it is. This drama gets the credit for introducing me to Ken Hirai. After watching this drama, I was looking everywhere for "Ring" and this led me to discover the talent that is Ken Hirai. Love Ken-san aka Mr Talented very much!!!

sighz...many famous celebrities starred in this drama..but they only played a small role..
n every single ep is about mental prob..
i stopped at disc4 n moved on to the last disc without watching the rest
this is one of the most disappointing drama i've ever watched..
i might suffered from mental prob if i continue watching this

I didn't like it at first....found it a little boring...but it eventually grew on me. Maybe because I like human psychology and well...will recommend those to watch it when you really have nothing else to do and also when you want to have full concentration. But it's not that bad....

I love the series. The camera work is beautifully done to enhance the rather boring static scenes. A charming actress is guest-staring in each episode. I especially like the one with Otsuka Nene.
5. Comments by Sun_Shang_Xiang [Rating: 8/10]
I love this, great performances from Takenouchi Yutaka , Hada Michiko , Nishimura Masahiko and Ichikawa Mikako. I especially liked the episode with Otsuka Nene and Izumiya Shigeru.

The reason I can stay and watching this drama is Yutaka Takenouchi. But I also love the storyline even though it quite slow. Suddenly I wanna a Psychologist!

It's a very serious and depressing drama, rather boring in fact... What kept me going was Yutaka and the strong cast of guest stars every episode...
9. Comments by yolande [Rating: 6/10]
if not for the fact that it is not very addictive, i would have given it a seven.
fabulous cast, good plot.
but it just lacks something.

Jus because of shibasaki kou, i've watched only the first episode, about kou as a patient who has acrophobia. A bit serious drama.....
