-------------------

- A lot of added and subtracted words. Please tell me if I got the translation incorrect.

- If done right, I think this could be a pretty funny story.

- Cheerful and spirited. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ I hope she doesn’t disappoint.

- “Oji-chan, do you believe in God?” This reminded me of Heaven’s Door. Why do Mayuko always say such lines. (*≧▽≦)

- I’m guessing on Nobuyo’s and Satoko’s names. It may be something else. Actually, I guessed on Haruo’s and Ritsuko’s names as well.

- Why do I have a feeling that there’s going to be a plot twist and Nobuyo and Haruo ended up together.

  2. OMG. Can't believe that I actually thought this was filmed in 2010. Mayuko's hairstyle in this drama reminds me of Q10 and Zettai Reido~ ><
