Kimura undergoes an interesting transformation in this popular tv drama. Mediocrity is the thing that he hates the most, and in fact so proud is he of his career and lifestyle - a designer and a playboy. He looks egocentric but in fact no value he has of his own. Change happens when he is moved from design department to sales department - the most mediocre job that he thinks. A transformation begins, and so does a journey that leads him to the deep down of himself. This tv drama is interwoven with four interrelated love stories, and a comparison between Kimura and his brother also gives some significant insights about the transformation. The structure is concise although a bit complicated. The plot is entertaining and sometimes quite touching. The transformations that other characters undergo are also interesting. Other than Long Vacation and Hero, it's another excellent work of Kimura. See it and you won't be sorry.
