Based on a popular manga, Minami (Itoh Misaki) is a single 28-year-old office worker in an advertising office. She's very work-oriented and her love is doubted by her boyfriend. One day, she meets Yuya (Kamenashi Kazuya), who is a part-time worker at her company. -- piccu on D-Addicts
Tokyo, 2006. Minami Fujii (Misaki ITO) is riding a train along Tokyo Bay. Weary from a day's work, she falls asleep while on the train. Her nap time is obstructed by the sound of somebody's cell phone ringing. She opens her eyes to see the phone lying unattended on a nearby seat. Reluctantly, she answers the phone. It's a man claiming to have dropped his phone. He wants Minami to deliver it to him before his job interview begins. However, since Minami too has a meeting she must attend, she takes the phone to the lost and found department of a nearby station.

On her way to work, Minami spots an old commercial being shown on a big-screen TV. She immediately takes a picture of it with her camera. That's when she realizes that someone else is also absorbed in the commercial. It's Yuya Ishida (Kazuya KAMENASHI), the young man who called to have his cell phone delivered.

Kyotaro Imaoka (Koichi SATO), creative director of an advertisement agency, is having a meeting at an insurance company with Kunio Sakuragi (Kazuyuki AIJIMA) and Satoshi Hagiwara (EITA). Minami soon joins the meeting. They have come to give a presentation for the new TV commercial for their company.

Meanwhile, Yuya has arrived at the place where he will have his interview. He is immediately given a tour of the office as well as a lecture on commercial planning. He has no idea that Minami has returned to the office and is having a meeting with Kyotaro and the others.

Later on, Yuya delivers mail to Minami. At first, she doesn't even look up at him. But when she does, it only takes 15 seconds—the same length as a television commercial—for Minami to realize that she had ran into Yuya while watching the commercial on the big-screen TV, and it was also his cell phone that she picked up on the train.

Personal review
Well, my dad starting watching the Chinese subbed version, and i just downloaded the English subbed version just to see how it is (note that i did not know that Itoh Misaki was in it even when i finished watching Densha Otoko). I downloaded it, 1st episode was pretty funny then I just couldn't stop watching, its funny and leans on the romance parts too. This drama would definitely interest you because KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya is there to make this drama funny
I give 5/5 for this.
if youre gonna watch this, im not gonna spoil it for you ^_^[/img]

Never heard of this dorama before. But hey, two of ayaka's songs are featured here! Might give it a shot, when I'm done with all the spring releases, which are just great. >_>

I think I watched till episode 9 or 10 and stop watching. If that tells you anything, it means the ending doesn't really matter to me. Laughing Not a very good dorama IMO, there are better ones out there, unless you're a hardcore fan of Itoh Misaki or Kame, or you like romance dorama very much. In a nutshell, this dorama is about the love between an older woman and a younger boy without any twist. Things just flow very slowly and not very exciting.

I didn't like the drama in general, I pretty much just watched it for Kame because he looked really cute in it lol. It kinda reminded me of anego, the whole older woman falling in love with a younger guy..the music was good though, ayaka & K-T >]

I watched it for the sake of kame~ even though it was similar to anego, I prefer watching anego. probably because I feel misaki is lacking "something"....I actually haven't watched the last episode yet...I should really finish watching the last episode...haha.

in general, it was pretty slow and a bit boring....but I agree that the songs were great! I love "real voice" and "YOU"~
