Zen, Taro, Ken
Although different ages, all three were known as the toughest cats in Harajuku Middle School. Now the 3 of them live together in a house they call "Peace." It may sound like a nice place to live, but in actuality, it is closer to poverty than you can imagine. But even so, they bide by their motto of "a cheerful, fun, and funky" life.
Suddenly one day, they find a first grader, Akira, on their doorstep. With Akira, they find a letter from his mother that reads "please take care of him for a little while." The bad part, which they soon find out is that Akira isn't like them. He's been raised in a glass house, and is "soft," quiet unlike the 3 of them, which proves to change their lives as they once knew it.

|1. ||A Look into the Lives Of Men [Rating: 9/10]|
I didn't know what to expect when I started this drama, and it ended up being awesome. It's about the lives of three young men who find themselves taking care of a six year old rich child. The story sees them teaching the boy, Akira, how to be a man, while Akira teaches his caretakers how to be responsible adults.
Suga Kenta, who plays Akira, was marvelous. Not only is he extremely cute, but the boy has talent! His acting was touching and sweet, and I'm sure he'll make it big when he grows up. Katori Shingo, Matsuoka Mitsuru, and Kato Koji were perfectly cast, and each played his role unseamingly well.
This drama has everything: comedy, romance, drama, and action all rolled into a touching story.

|2. ||Absolutely loved this drama!!!!!!!! [Rating: 10/10]|
This one took Summer Snow from top #1 on my list. This one really made me cry, really touched my emotions. It was a really great jdrama! It was also so inspiring, I wish they'd come out with a part two of this jdrama! Akira was so brave, and the three guys were wonderful, my favorite was Zen! He really stood out in this anime with his caring loving heart!

|5. ||An okay drama [Rating: 7/10]|
Basically "3 Men and a Baby" Japanese style. It has it's funny moments. It's an okay drama and a nice break from tragic love stories.

Succeeds at being very funny and touching, despite the fact that 80% of the script is YELLING and RAISED VOICES

this is a really nice show too! it's better than what i expected. they shld try slowing down their talking speed sometimes thou cos quite hard to catch up. hehe. i really like taro!!! totally falls over him while watching this show. he really shld be given the opportunity to star in more shows than just this. totally mesmerised by him. his ex-wife nana is very pretty too!!! and igarashi is one of the cutest child i've ever seen wif gd acting skills. shingo fits his role. very happy-go-lucky and always jumping around yet also a very strong sense of loyalty and justice. i hate the police! first sleeping forest and now here! he always spoils everything up for mi! cried like mad when akira's father was caught by the police.

Very funny, I love this drama. Cute men and they are so hilarious very loud but very funny. The stories are touching
One thing that i would complain about the drama is that it doesn't feel like a drama but a sitcom. THe people are soo loud, they talk so fast that sometimes it gave me a headache, but its okay since their cuteness and lovable characters make up for it. The cute little boy is wonderful, I can really feel his sadness when his crying and happiness when he's laughing. The ators have chemistry, it feel like they are one big happy family. The life stories of the three men are really touching and every episode their is a moral that can be learned. This is a very wholesome drama, I like it

This dorama got the best rating (Average 21.53%) for that season. It is very high these days. This dorama is geared for a family oriented audiance, for example, no love scenes and no kisses etc. There are funny scene as well as touching moments. This is the Japanese version of "Three men and a baby". By the way, the little kid in the show is just adorable. Well, if you are sick of Love story, then it will not hurt to pick this one up. This a a good comdey.

8.5 to be precise. Nothing too innovative, but still a heartfelt and fun story with lots of lovable characters! Great child actor and enjoyed somewhat creepy Taro (the singer of SOPHIA, really drama?!). Also loved Ryou in this one. Great friendships and I really love the typically unconventional (contradiction, much?) but very true approach à la Gokusen. Nothing against a bit of fighting and outsiders. :3

3 guys who live together get their carefree lives turned upside down by an unexpected visitor, a little boy who has nowhere to go. You could say this is a Japanese 3 men & a baby. The beginning is a bit slow but it then got better for each episode & in the end it was a really enjoyable drama. The good cast & the cool themesong are also worth mentioning. Not a top drama but I recommend it.
|6. ||Comments by Lee-chan [Rating: 8/10]|
This one was at times so over-the-top it was anime-like, but not annoyingly so. The interactions between the three leads, as well as the adorable performance by little Suga Kenta make this a very fun watch. The romance aspect was rather weak, but it still manages to make the list of my favorite dorama.
|7. ||Comments by Nermal [Rating: 9/10]|
To watch with moderate volume since about 89% of the dialogue of this drama is spent screaming and shouting.
A Heart-warming story about human relationships and family. The cast of actors were also well chosen for their respective roles making this drama very enjoyable.
Highly recommended! ^^
|8. ||Comments by EstherM [Rating: 8/10]|
Cool show despite the Smap dude. Not corny at all - except for a few tiny moments! It�Ls a fun story about some average guys and their guy stuff - and that�Ls honestly very refreshing! If you need more to be convinced: Ryo and one of the best (punky) opening themes ever.
|9. ||Comments by sasukekun6 [Rating: 9/10]|
I can't lie, I spent half of this drama thinking "Omg Akira is adorable!!!!!"
It's a really fun, sweet drama! I loved the casting and the characters were so much fun~ It definitely pulls on your heart strings though.
And uhm. Katori's hair is a disaster. lol.
|10. ||Comments by zhirong [Rating: 9/10]|
This is one of the drama that left a lasting memory. A story about 3 guys who one day adopted a child. The chemistry between them is good. It reflects on friendships and kinships. Manami Konishi is in it as well! And Hoshino Mari :D
|11. ||Comments by Akyoku [Rating: 7/10]|
okay story, good acting, again, another SMAP guy (argh ...), but i got to know Matsuoka Mitsuru, he is cute in this and i love his character ^^
and of course the reason for watching: ikuta's short appearance in episode 5 ;)
|12. ||Comments by Ralbol [Rating: 7/10]|
Putain comme ils sont relous a gueuler tout le temps. A part ca quelques moments droles (pas mal meme), quelques moments niais (pas mal meme), ce qui nous donne un drama sympa, mais pas top. Mais bon, y a quand meme Ryou.
|13. ||Comments by heimu [Rating: 9/10]|
I'm cursing myself not to notice Konishi Manami more in this dorama, only realised her presence in Hotman. But overall the dorama is quite enjoyable and as far as I know, people whom watched it will love it.

If you're a japanese language student, this drama is CHOICE. Kansai ben, tokyo ben, and Ken-chan ben (completely incomprehensible tough-guy speak).
This drama is tons of fun.

A very nice, funny but also sad dorama with handsome actors and a good opening song ^v^ It really was fun watching it and who wouldn't like to be raise by three kakkoi men XD

This show is so great! You have to get past the crying and the shouting (which can make you so sick), but later on you really get to feel the strong bonds that formed.
|18. ||Comments by yijing [Rating: 8/10]|
i like this drama as it's one of the rare few dramas that really doesn't touches much on romance. it's good that a plot without romance can still warms ur heart.
|19. ||Comments by arashinokoto [Rating: 8/10]|
great.. as i liked shingo in it.. and the kid is realllly cute.. made him cry everyepisode.. and sophia's mitsuru in his first drama role was impressive..
|20. ||Comments by GIGI [Rating: 8/10]|
Little boy Akira made me cry buckets! Never expected to like this series. Shingo sometimes overacts but his scenes with the boy always tugs at my heart.

i love this drama! it's hillarious, full of lessons to be learnt and, and.... sigh, it's just beautiful. a good mixture of everything in everyday life.

This drama is an excellent look into the mindset and lives of men. A touching story that encompasses comedy, drama, action, and romance all into one.

Wah..probably one of the best drama i've ever seen. It's touching, funny, and a very beautiful story. Fans of J-Drama should watch this.

very good drama! Even though you can pretty much figure out how it is going to end, its interesting to watch as well as cute and funny!

Oct 2003: the combination between 3 guys & girls were great, began to like hoshino mari after her " annoying " role in mukodono 2003.

This drama is a must see of all Shingo fans.
I am a huge fan of Shingo's and I gotta say that his performance in this drama impressed me once again!! Mitsuru Matsuoka also did an excellent job. I never would have imagined him acting but he was AWESOME. As for the other guy...I dunno...I'm not too big of a fan.
He seems really angry all the time in the drama...but he did pretty good I guess...!
Kenta Suga was just plain adorable!!
This is the best drama I have seen!
very funny drama. I think the actors did a great performance especially the three guys and the cute little boy. Their relationship is really fun to watch and all 4 of them are sooo cute. They are loud but very funny. I think all three men(I don't know their names sorry) will go a looong way in this business. I love the violent guy, he's soo cute and he can really act, almost cried during an episode focusing on him and his dad
very sweet and fun show. the ending is quite touching when the child has to leave them. However, the relationship between Shingo and the girl isn't that clear, but still this show is a veru worthwhile show to watch for all Shingo's fan. : )
Best drama in Jdorama.....I can stand watching it for 5 time!
~Shingo is so adorable in this drama. Even he sometimes still like kid, but it doesn't give much impact to this drama~
This drama is enjoyable, and delightfully not-serious. Rather than try to be serious and fail, it tries to be fun, and succeeds.
How cute was that little boy!! Suga Kenichi (I think...) Another one of those feel-good dramas... yeah, I'm a sucker for 'em.
A unique script and good mixture of characters...
that's what life is all about, isn't it?
(-_-)v ~ 3 peace!!!
cast: zen(lion head), taro(kakoi), ken(had an iritating loud voice), akira(cry baby)
Nice dorama about being fathers to a homeless boy. A must see dorama, in which all kinda feelings mixed together
Very funny and so adorable. I love this drama so much. It may be my all time favorite. 3 PEACE!
I loved this drama, great cast, excellent story, funny and touching
i just love this drama.
it's really cool!! i want to see more
Katori Shingo is SOOOO cool! And that little boy is adorable.
One of the best dorama ever! Entertaining and funny. <3
a Must watch awesome drama on my top 10
I just love it..Fun and touching..
