Selena I decided to watch Last Cinderella because Haruma Miura was is it and I just finished watching The Hours of My Life. He was really good in it so I decided to see what else he was in. At first, I wasn't sure I was going to like Last Cinderella, but it's very entertaining. I haven't finished it yet, I'm just about done with the 10th episode and I don't know how I want it to end! Sakura would be great with Hiroto or Tachibana. Usually I can tell who the main character is going to end up with because it's usually a no brainer, or I can at least pick who I know I want to the main character to be with, but I couldn't with this show.

Hiroto, yes while young, did end up having feels for her. And sure, it started with a lie but I can name many other story line where the love all started with a lie or a bet or something of that sort, and it all ended up fine. It's a classic and cheesy, "unexpected love" story. But Tachibana's just so cute about liking her, because it's the average "I hate you" denial love. I cheer for both... It's the only way... I have to refrain from looking at any of the comments below for the fear of spoilers...

Either way, it's a good show and I'm glad I took the time to watch it.

Chiyochan Tbh, I really don't like Hiroto and Chiyoko. I was really rooting for Rintaro and Sakura instead... (T_T) but I guess... It didn't work out properly. I still hated Hiroto even when he Changed. I know it's stubborn of me but Sakura and Rintaro fit perfectly together.

Japan-drama Honestly, Chiyoko has been so annoying although she turned into a favorable character at the end and realized she was wrong. Still, I think she needed to get a little punishment something like involving in love triangle with Sakura's incapable brother. Like most commentors said below, the story was super kawaiiii and I can't wait to another series of Last Cinderella maybe filming in NY where Tachibana San will work ? I don't know. That will be interesting.

Jdramafun Perfect happy ending !!! I can't wait the producer makes the sequel of this drama. By just looking at title of this drama there's something attracted me. I naturally hit the play button, ever since then, I could not stop watching this drama not for a minute. Previously, I liked to watch mischievious kiss in Tokyo which is another famous j-drama, but compared to last Cinderella that is way more creative story and fun to watch. What was the most amusing and amazing part to watch this drama is the two interesting unmatching main characters. Sakura and Hiroto, my two favorites! I secretly wished they ended up together from episode 1. But that wasn't all about this drama; it was fun to watch all the side stories around their friends and families. I laughed so hard when sakura's fitness trainer friend picked a dorkiest looking guy by doing rock, paper, scissor. Please so mr producer listen and make another episode of this drama for people like me who enjoyed it so much :-)

jdramaforthewin Yes! Hiroto and Sakura for the win!!! I really liked this show! It was such a thrill not truly knowing who Sakura was going to pick until she said "i'm sorry" to Tachibana!! I did a kick-flip whooo!!

jdrama I am soooo happy about Hiroto and Sakura!!! I loved how I truly did not know who in the world she was going to chose until she said "I'm sorry" to Tachibana. I did a kick flip! I was so happy!

dramafanatic I am so happy Hiroto and Sakura ended up being together! I would have been pissed if the writers made me fall in love with Hiroto and then not get the girl. That means that he also would've never won the competition, his dad would've given up on him, and he'd be struggling trying to make a living with a broken heart and a family that doesn't accept him. Bam. I can't believe I even thought that far. Tachibana, on the other hand, had New York. So, regardless, he can just start over again. Although, I do have to admit that I was sad for him and was secretly wishing he would fall in love with Chiyoko (even if it was out of pitty.. how horrible of me). It would've also let the show last an episode longer... and there would've been enough air-time to see them on their wedding day and what they ended up doing in the future due to their age gap. Would their parents even allow it?!?! Maybe the producers were afraid of dragging it out even more...None the less, this was a great show.

An Hello! Could someone tell me at what Time Tachibana put Sakura to bed ? (It's for a quiz) - 4h20 - 4h30 - 4h40 Thanks.

otaku fangirl omfg i cried so much. i was rooting for tachibana x sakura, but i have to admit, when hiroto was so depressed over sakura, i switched sides. im not loyal at all xD

al mmm.. am I the only one thinking that there were some ero and ecchi scenes that have no point what so ever I really hated this it could have been a great not fore those scenes... still it 's a really nice storyline worth watching and really funny :D

Pauline I was rooting for tachibana since the beggining of this dorama. I really thought sakura is going to end up with tachibana, until i read all the comments below. Well.. Stupidly i still continue to watch this dorama hoping sakura is going to end up with tachibana. I wonder what happens here, cause i thought all the scenes are leading to tachibana (even on the opening song where there was a hand holding a glass shoe, those were tachibana's hand). Can we please have anoher ending where sakura & tachibana got together? Well, if its not, tachibana will still available for grabs right ;)

johnny boy This chick had no self respect. The stupidity of this show was astounding.

Last Cinderella Fan I thought I saw somewhere that there may be a Season Two. I hope its a continuation of Sakura & Hiroto's relationship. Or even if they ran this series like I NEED ROMANCE SERIES would be nice too!

Please drama gods we need more of Sakura x Hiroto!!! ;-)

:) To be honest I wanted Tachibana to be with Sakura, oh we'll I still love this drama!

virgo omg i think sakura and haruma will make a great couple! the part of the story that proved it and my favorite was the bike tournament when she fainted. they are so cute together! if it was her and tachibana i would just rage ALL DAY!

Sabrina OMG, I thought Tachibana was going to get the girl. It was really enjoyable watching this drama until the very end. I'll be honest, I didn't really like the ending.

Dianne Just finished watching this drama... It was one of the most enjoyable shows I've seen in a long time... Nothing heavy or depressing--Truly enjoyable, and I'm still smiling :) The writers, actors, and everyone else involved should be congratulated!!! Thanks so much for the memories and a happy ending!!

Susan Really liked this. Wasn't sure till the last 5 minutes who would really "get the girl". Liked it so much I'd watch it again.

Jamie I couldn't help but fangirl over Haruma and at the same time I sympathized for the main girl but at the same time I really wanted Tachibana with the main girl and I just got so conflicted, I....stayed up watching TTT^TTT

ve124 how can I watch this movie until the last episode?

Clarkdale44 Decent drama... Casting and cinematography was OK. Background music didn't matched quite well with the situation, destroying the emotions and feelings of the scene. Story was OK.

I will give it 5/10.

G. ~~ ^o^ @ nana-chan, WHAT!!? MORE LAST CINDERELLA?! ;D ^o^ Do you know when those eps are gonna be extended?! o.O

G. ~~ ^o^ I really loved LC and I'm so glad that Hiroto and Sakura are together and I really loved the ending! I don't know why people don't like the ending because it was kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ;D ~~

drama-queen can't believe yamato youske is in episode 6-7 waw !!!!!!

someone meri kim) i agree with you

Meri Kim Too Bad, I don't like the ending. I wish Sakura with Tachibana

Mika I love this drama! :) ♥♥♥ I hope there will be a Special or a second season! :) ♥♥♥ Hiruma Miura ♥♥♥

anc another mainstream romantic drama with a mainstream ending. :(

Anniya I hate the ending!!!Sakura and Tachibana are so intimate!I didn't get it!

Nina opinion is true.... at the ending, sakura choose hiroto as her couple.. great!!!

rossal so love the ending: Sakura <3 Hiroto

rossal for sakura to end up with hiroto is the best (in my opinion): 1. for her to wed a prince (a rich man's son - haruma) 2. for her to become the manager of Happy Go Lucky Salon means successful in

   her career

3. for a 39-40 yr old woman to be in love and be loved by a much younger man with

   pure/honest feelings

4. to be aligned with the original concept of the "Last Cinderella"

rossal for sakura to end up with hiroto (haruma) is the best ending (for me) as it aligns with the original concept.

  • for her to be wed to a prince (rich man's son, Haruma) ,
  • to be the manager of the happy go lucky salon as a successful hair stylist (success
  in career), 
  • for a 30 --> 40 yr old to end up with a much younger man with real/pure

Rihwa I'm a huge fan of Haruma, but this time, for Sakura's happiness, I choose Rintaro Tachibana >~<

joreen I love Haruma~but im so into the TEAM RINTARO <3 !! !

rossal have just finished watching the 11th episode (last) even with the raw (no English subs) and I enjoyed it very much... it is the first drama that i watched all the episodes twice: 1st in raw and 2nd with the English subtitles already from episode 1 till episode 11... i live haruma and his hiroto-kun character here... more than naohito, tachibana-kun....

xxheartxxbreakerxx TEAM HIRATO!!!!!! YAY! I LOVE THIS ONE!!!!!!! I hope Hirato is happy with Sakura! I cried when the proposal was excepted! It was Beautiful!.... *akward silence* I can't wait for the special ending I really hope it ends like the poster! <3 <3

luvlymysara Nahh..I think she will be ended with Hiroto. As usual, my preferred hero (2nd lead) won't win..:(

Nina i hope the ending will be like that poster = Hiroto kun embraces sakura san!!! *yyeeeeiii!!! let me join with HIROTO TEAM!!!!

chocolove HIROTO!!!!! ^_^ This drama is super!!I can't stop watching! Now I can't wait for the special ending even though I have to study..! Hiroto and Tachibana are both super hot and they both love Sakura...what a dilemma!! I hope that Sakura and Hiroto end up together. It's so irritating that he lied,he really loves her and can make her happy.

JoyInSung Team Hiroto!! :(( he loves sakura more than tachibana.. and sakura loves him too.. sakura feels like tachibana is family..

Roy TEAM RINTARO!!! I love Sakura and Rintaro. Pls. Writer end them together. :)

luvlymysara I have goosebumps while watching every episode! I prefer Tachibana, but Hiroto is nice too..

tachibanasakura forever TEAM TACHIBANA!!!!! seriously how can people not see the super duper chemistry between tachibana and sakura? they are like meant for each other..they balance each other out..i just love this 2...and how can you people say tachibana did not fight for sakura? since the first episode he has been secretly protecting sakura(from the baseball,from being hurt by hiroto).he even go out with chiyoko because hiroto was blackmailing him....THIS IS PURE LOVE!!! please sakura must end with tachibana!!

NotaHaterXOXO I Think Sakura is a little too old but another is ok

whatsup This drama rocks !_! I can't wait for it to each week. The actress/actors are amazing!

Magda I utterly hope that Sakura will end up with Hiroto. Tachibana doesn't make too many moves. I choose Hiroto over Tachibana because Hiroto puts a lot of efforts for Sakura. his love is growing as time goes by. Hiroto doesn't deserve to get hurt :-( yes from the begining Hiroto was just being asked by Choko to pretend getting attracted to Sakura. but I think we should not consider it as a big deal because Hiroto has so much changed. and he's getting serious with his feeling towards Sakura. OMG please. let Sakura end up with Hiroto.


  1. Team Hiroto! After seeing how happy he was when his marriage proposal was accepted... I cried ;( I hope he's gonna be happy with sakura!! I WANT HIM TO BE HAPPY =3= Chiyoko listen up! Dont make your onii-chan cry D;;(

Yo!!! Awwwhhh!! Chiyoko!! I know Hiroto ruined your life but he didnt mean it!! He did what you asked of him, and you cant do the same? ughhh!!! TT^TT dont worry Hiroto! Ganbatte!!!!!! I hope Hiroto will end up with sakura >^<" he has genuine feelings for sakura!! Please... at least make him happy instead of making his heart broken ;)

Smileys I wish that Hiroto and Sakura will end up together. After watching these two a lot.. I feel somehow Hiroto needs a second chance to explain things and to be happy with his first love!!! Look at how happy he was when Sakura accepted his marriage proposal >U3 >3 >3 >3 >3

Jini Sakura and Rintaro~~ I super love their tom and jerry relationship. It is pretty obvious they care for each other. <3

bluericeball Hehehe... it's already episode but still cant decide which prince would i want for Sakura to chose. But one thing is certain, i dont want Tachibana to end up with Chiyoko! He should be with me! lol!

nana-chan This dorama have a good rating! From 13,3% in first episode and now 15,7% at 7th episode (idk the eps8 yet). I thought the best love story was Love Triangle, desshou?

And finally Rintaro realized that he loves Sakura also. Hmm..

Who's Team Hiroto and who's Team Rintaro? \(^o^)/

note : for your information, I heard that this dorama got extended episode, from 11 into 12 and the last episode will extended for 2 hours. Nice!

tina Miura Haruma....i really love this drama....^..^

sara i really don't like j-drama so much but this drama really changed my mind really exciting and entertaining one , i only hoped it was not only 11 ep

bird i like this show too - light, refreshing and entertaining. i don't watch japanese drama.. but really like this one

Verne Hiroto and Tachibana are both extremely attractive and our Cinderella Sakura is in a HOT spot between the two of them. This drama is FUN, well cast and educational . I want to see more of it .....sooner.I like that it shows that men have similar fears as they age....just as women do.

tere actually i prefer tachibana and sakura. Hiroto and sakura look alike son and mother. it's worst!! tachibana ganbatte ne...:D

chokyu just watched the 4th episode. Now i'm starting to wonder... what relationship does chiyoko and hiroto have? thought they were siblings, but after watching the 4th ep... i don't know already.

girlstrike Ryoko Shinohara role as an old single woman again?! after reading the plot i feels like dejavu, she had been role as a single woman in ANEGO and had a troublesome feeling with a younger man LOL. since i love her acts in ANEGO so much, so, i think i should start to watch this drama. ^^

bora I prefer naohito than miura harumaa ^^.. He is very handsomee ;)

robyne Naohito Fujiki is looking GOOD in this drama. he is aging well. thrilled to see Haruma Muira in such a grown up role, too. this drama will launch a billion fantasies of him, no doubt! it is hard to wait each week for the new episode. :-/

ostriaj the first j-drama i've watched and it was great and entertaining.....cant wait for the next episode.Arigato!

Tsuyacchan happy 23rd birthday haruma-kun. I wish you all happyness for this day and I hope that you can always smile for me and all your fans! please stay well and I can't wait to see you in the new drama! hontoni daisukiiiiiiiii <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 :)

Tsuyacchan happy 23rd birthday haruma-kun. Wish you all happiness for this day and hope that you can always smile for me and all the people who like you!! daisukiiiiiiiii <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
