Jaimy i LOVED this Drama, the story plot, the characters ..everything about it was Amazing. i so rate this 5/5. Kusanagi was Brilliant , Keiko was a Super Star and my Fav was Taisuke and the character he played (Kawagoe-kun) gave the drama a touch of humor. All in all this was one of the Best Drama i have ever watched (^w^)

nana-chan @dramawatcher: it will be 11 episode

Dramawatcher Does anyone know how many episodes are there to this drama - a swinging single.

Mic Ok, this is really driving me crazy! It's already episode 9, and everything in the drama is pointing to Mamoru and Yuki are made for each other, but they are still not together! Guess it will be the finale when they finally get together. Ahhh frustrating!

Mic It's already episode 6, when are they going to tell Yuki and Mamoru's story?? I am getting impatient seeing Yuki and Senmu together the whole time!

msPeachy Just watched the pilot episode and I enjoyed it. I like Mamuro. Excited for the other episodes.

Mic Still only three episodes out, but I really enjoying this drama. Like the characters, the flow, the humor and such. And Moon River as background music is just awesome!
