  • Recently watched this drama. I like the plot and how it unfolded. The ending (NO SPOILERS) made me think... A LOT.
  • Ryo Ryusei (he plays Naomi) has definitely grown into a versatile actor (considering I've watched him in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger). Was also surprised he was also in Koe Koi.
  • Would like to recommend this drama if you're interested in twisted and mature plots.
  • It has only 4 episodes, so it's quite short but the impact of the drama really stays with you.
  • The drama is definitely not something to watch around your younger siblings/nephews/nieces/ kids. NSFW warning is there.
  • There are possible trigger warnings like suicide and death so please be aware and read this comment first before you watch the series.

I just finished this drama and I'm glad I watched it. It was messed up but I really enjoyed it, I felt like I was watching a movie (maybe it was because of the mature side of it, and the ost). I'll think about this drama for a looong time, it's been so long since I truly felt this way about a jdrama (the last drama to make me think this much was Zeni Geba) so I'll cherish it even more.
