Storyline

On the outside, Michi has a good life. She has good friends, a teaching career and a handsome fiancé. On the inside, however, she is empty. A fateful encounter with a young man on a motorcycle changes everything. He is Hikaru, and a new student in her class. The two fall head over heels in love, and decide to face whatever stands in their way of a life together, and the obstacles are many: Michi's fiancé, Hikaru's obsessively protective mother, and even the law.

just another Japanese drama, at times it can touch you.
25 September 2001 | by miharuSee all my reviews

Adding to what the previous review says.. Japanese dramas (or soap operas, to Americans), aren't acted out very well. Most characters do seem mismatched and plots are thrown together. I'm beginning to think that this method is used on purpose. Tetsuya Bessho, who plays Michi's angry fiancee, is a wonderful actor as I have seen him in Parasite Eve. However, he is very flat and wanes through the show much like the woman who plays his fiancee. Not a big fan of dramas, I sat through all 13 episodes and even cried at the end. It's not a great, ground-breaking series.. but it's something to do on a Saturday night, when the LA station airs the English subtitled version. For jpop fans, Utada Hikaru sings the theme song, "First Love."
