Storyline:

22-year-old Hiromichi works as a recycle items collector. His father is a murder suspect, who ran away 5 years ago, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. To support his mother (who is now warded in hospital), Hiromichi quit school to work. One day, he meets a young female college student, Juri. They fell in love, not knowing that the girl’s father is the police detective currently on the hunt for his father.

My thoughts:
(*contains minor spoilers*)

Hiromichi and Juri. Romi and Juri. I was very happy when they announced that the female lead was Nagasawa Masami, coz after watching her in DragonZakura, I liked her. However, she was pretty annoying in this drama. Her voice was super “act cute”… All my goosebumps surfaced when she talks!! Apart from that (and of her looking slightly too big for Takki), she was alright :)

Takki as Romeo = And we all know that’s the name we also use to refer to his *beep* :D He was the only reason why I watched this of course. Though I couldn’t stand the ‘act cute’-ness of the female lead, there are some scenes which are quite cute and funny~ like the ‘sitting’ and ‘standing’ thing, the miso vs shio (I vote for shio though) ramen, etc.

Romeo = He’s rather Takki-rashi~~ And I kinda feel that his anger towards his father in the drama came from the real Takki himself.

Oh. Yes. TAKKI + KITTY = *KAWAII*

The imagery. BEAUTIFUL~~~ The row of trees with yellow leaves, and the church. A very “autumn” feel~~ Whether it’s in the day, or at night, that place is so, so, so pretty and romantic~!! I wanna go there!!!!!! And the Music is really nice too. There’s a theme that keeps repeating throughout the drama, it’s really soothing and beautiful. I love the ending music too, when the credits appear…

    when first time i watched +-2 month ago, i think it’s good drama ^-^ but for a complicated romeo & juliet story,not enough just in 1DVD. Love is short… XD
    Takki is really takki =w= (*perhaps he forgot how to acting besides taiga lol) anyhow seems happy

    I found Nagasawa Masami rather irritating. She acts too “cute”. I also have some reservations about the direction. When they first meet, he really doesn’t have to be rude. He could show simply indifference. But,in fact,a little interest would make more sense. And when they rejoin one another after racing around, thanks to the gingko leaves, you would think they would not stand 3 meters apart but get together, even if they realize right away they will have to part.
    The basic story is good, the setting beautiful, and the music just right.
