Great romantic drama starring Tsuyoshi Domoto, and Kyoko Fukada.
Yuji Tokieda (Tsuyoshi Domoto) is an up and coming boxer. He was leading a normal life until he accidentally bumps into Toko Miura ( Kyoko Fukada ) at a convenience store. At first Yuji doesn't see Toko as anybody important, but Toko begins to be attracted Yuji. Her feeling for Yuji begins to build until she starts to make efforts to find anything about him. Fortunately for her she finds out that he part times at the flower shop that she can see from the roof top of the department store where she works at a Crepe restaurant (Japanese department store has open air restaurants at its roof top ). She asks at the flower shop where he lives, and the store owner (who's a lady, and who Yuji has a crush on) gives her his address. She visits him, but he's not home, and a package gets delivered to his home. She's asked to sign it, and she finds a key on top of his door. She decides to enter his house. Soon Yuji comes home, and is surprised to find her at his home. From this incident Yuji and Toko begins to get closer in their relation. A relation that started as one side love of Toko begins to positively affect Yuji's boxing career, and their love blossoms. But there are many hardships waiting to separate the two lovers.
Sometimes this series is counted as second of Tsuyoshi Domoto trilogy. First being the "Ao no jidai", and the third being "Summer Snow". This series cemented Kyoko Fukada's reputation as an actor. Her performance as Toko, left indelible impression on the viewers of this drama.
Somewhat small scale of this drama might limit its international potential, but it is a superb drama that's worth the patience to watch it all the way through.
