>_ I just watched the first 3 episodes and now I'm hooked! I thought this is a drama about a teacher reforming a closeted teenager... But its actually more than that... So thrilling! >_<

Tsuki It is a great drama!! All the actors are extremely good. The story is also mysterious and surprising. Sakurai Sho is an awesome actor and I think this is his best role :)

Shreeya Excellent acting by Sho Sakurai and Ryunosuke Kamiki.The drama focuses on human psychology and emotions.This drama is a MUST WATCH for everyone.The most intriguing part is that we couldnot know the actual truth of Sho,of the person he was,Maybe season 2 can be made by that.

ekvar I think this is one of the best of the best dramas ever. And Sho's "good" is so creepy - I can't stop listening to it :D and the way he walks... :] Perfect acting, awesome characters, brilliant plot and it is directed in a very cool way. I loved it! It's simply a MUST WATCH :)

dramalover it's funny how he walks...lol

selaruku Wow. really... WOW! This is one of the best dramas I watched in 2013! Everyone is amazing, but the one who really stands out a lot is.. Sho Sakurai, you can only discribe him with one word, awesome. I loved him in The Quiz Show 2 with his "Drrrrrrream Chansu" and his awesome portrayal of the character and here again he portrays his character Yoshimoto in an epic way. And after watching it, at the end of the drama, you will only say (with Sakurais voice in your mind): いいねぇぇぇぇ~

docalion Wow!! Super great drama!!! Full of suspense and excitement!! Supeerrr recommended!! My only regret is not seeing a dramatic farewell between Shige-chan and Sensei!!! Their student-teacher relationship was really fun to watch and they had a very good chemistry!! Nevertheless, it was really a super great drama!! Love you Sho Sakurai!!!! My 2nd best Arashi member! Mukyaaa!!

Juergen Zhi Kitahara Rie is really cute isn't she? XD . Shou act is really cool btw. the story is really unprediction.. perfect!

Satorin A very intriguing drama that is warped and yet keeps things up in the air. Can't wait to see how it develops even further. Definitely recommended!

Kira Kira The first episode was really good! I couldn't help but laugh. I definitely recommend this one

kazurei Sho-kuuun ^^ ♥
