I like this drama a lot.  Really don’t understand why it did not do well in rating.  I like it a lot more than
結婚できない男 which was the best rating of last season.

The story is touching.  Both the lead and supporting actors  gave very good performance.  The only criticism to this drama is that it is not original enough.  Obviously, the creator was trying to be safe and stuck with rating bankable elements like: terminal disease from "a liter of tears" (1リットルの涙).  Cast dominated by a group of young, popular and cute actors from "花より男子.  I also couldn’t stop myself from thinking the setting is too much like "beach boys".
