Probably best drama ever
14 February 2011 | by aim7sparrowSee all my reviews

When we started watching it, my girlfriend said it's boring, nothing is happening, and that she doesn't want to watch it anymore - and she was saying it for first 3 episodes. After watching a bit more she changed her mind, just to say in the end that it was best TV series and that it was very hard not to cry in the end.

In the beginning it seems very simple, eventless and innocent, but if you give it a bit of patience, you will probably remember those series whole life.

Unforgettable and truly Japanese - feelings of all the characters are displayed in their purest and strongest form.

I wish more series would be like that - making one remarkable unique TV season instead of displaying same characters coping with same problems over and over, endlessly dragged out for commercial purposes.
