the one that i keep coming back to
There really aren't any shows that I watch more than once...this is the one exception. my heuristic for any good love story is one that is honest with the flaws of both partners and this drama does just that. add on top of this the irrepressible chemistry of the leads (this put Kimura Takuya's acting on the map and is one of the unfortunately few works of Yamaguchi Tomoko), music that works its way into the story, and the shows ability to capture so much of the silliness, stings, and sensations of relationships in all their mess and meaning - making it my favorite love story drama series in any language.
