This is no ordinary drama. With seemingly unrelated standalone stories, the entire drama must be appreciated as a single piece of work. This story is about a quest. A quest to seek for the meaning of love. Nojima Shinji comes up with many facets of love, and every episode is a denial of a certain aspect of love, except for the final episode, where the quest seeker -Yutaka Takenouchi- has found his very own meaning of love. Do not expect much 'real life' plot from this drama. It goes as far as nojima shinji's imagination can reach. If you dislike unrealistic drama, then this one is not for you. Though the plot is surreal, emotions are being portraited in fine details. Two thumbs up for the performance from the actors and actresses. OST is amazing as well.
