Clarkdale44 Well, finished it but didn't quite understand what were those 10 episodes all about. I have to say Yukie Nakama was amazing. Story was a bit weird and boring, you will freak out at times and ask to yourself what and why until the very last episode. To be honest, this drama was nothing but a headache.. Its like "Much ado about nothing".

Anyway i will recommend it if you have free time, otherwise don't bother.

I will give it 4/10(Great casting by Yukie Nakama, decent story)

Aldricho has striking similarities (not to mention her name on this series) to her 2013 drama Saki, she also sits on a similar rocking chair as the one in Saki? coincidence???? o.O

Renata yukie is very scared!

Chris can't wait for this!!! Yukie Nakama was antagonist T__T but im still love you Yankumi!!
