One of the best! (Thanks to thesog) [Rating: 10/10]
Virgin Road! Man they could make these good dramas as early as 1997.
I never seen the beautiful actor Wakui Emi in any drama before. But from seeing this I can tell she's a great actor. Describing how great, is futile and pointless since it will only run short from any true experience of viewing her, live a drama, cause that's how it feels like when you see her, performing would be a weak word.
Needless to say she alone made this drama so delightful to watch. The storyline was strong and despite the start-to-finish was already revealed you were never bothered by it, the story held up almost through every episode. And the theme with Amuro Namie was great too, I grew to like it more and more. I also liked the idea of featuring her in the intro video as well, apperantly not always a fact.
It's not the general lovey-dovey JDrama since it's also a family drama I would guess. As always in these dramas there were a great number of intense scenes of emotions enough to heat up a whole block, but always without feeling dorky in any way cause you believed it and felt for it. This was another beautiful drama and it's highly recommended.
Grading 10 of 10 is the least I can do.
Finally I've come to terms why I generally like JDramas more than anything else, apart from exellent acting with very subtle (but fully working) facial expressions and soft way-winning on the edge of cool dialogs, captivating scripts full of surprise twists and as a rule kickass theme songs along with world-class and always well chosen soundtracks, I like the fact that they always presents decent explanations which works damn well while twirling the story forward. Well that's of course IMO labeled.
