Very Adult, Very Rewarding
6 February 2011 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is a very adult and emotional story about an unusual love triangle. Takayuki starts dating Haruka, who is involved in a horrible accident, which causes her to be in a coma for 3 years. Due to her fragile state, the people around her are told to act like she hasn't been in a coma for three years. However, within that time Takayuki becomes closer with Haruka's best friend Mitsuki. How can Takayuki reconcile his affection for Mitsuki while being loyal to the fragile Haruka, continuing as if they were still boyfriend and girlfriend, that nothing has changed? Very emotional, with some strange silly interludes (Takayuki at his job with the wacky waitress Ayu), this series is compelling in its scope. I really liked it, it had many high points and it has a depth that a live action series may not be able to capture. Not for children, its drama for adults. Recommended.
