A cast with great chemistry!
I only got to watch this drama early this year, but its still relevant and funny almost half a decade later.
I think the reason this drama works is because of the chemistry between Yamaguchi Tomoko and Kimura Takuya. Boisterous vs. shy - that's a good juxtaposition, especially when SHE is the noisy, forward one and HE is the retiring, mild mannered one. In fact I think Yamaguchi Tomoko is a great actress. She's so alive and her enthusiasm is infectious. Izumi Inamori deserves a mention too as the somewhat loony best friend. The women really shine in their roles. But really, it's the overall good casting and the refreshing scenarios that made this drama as engaging as it is.
