Personal opinion: Great story concept. Look out for those hilarious moments when Satorare's personal thoughts create mayhem in the hospital. Notwithstanding this, there are also several heart-tugging moments, especially when Satorare's mum was hospitalised with cancer and she asked that her son operate for her. This is definitely a fantasy love story not to be missed - - Rated 9/10. By the way, the theme song by Glay is plain superb!!! --primetime
