Synopsis

Kanzaki Jirou is an F3000 test driver in Europe, with killer driving skills. Unfortunately due to an accident, he's kicked out of the team and more unfortunately, his old team in Japan doesn't seem to want him back on the team. He goes back to his hometown and finds out that his foster father has converted their home into an orphanage. His foster dad is a man of few words, and Tomomi Sensei who is working there, and is unpopular with the orphans. Jirou on the other hand, who hates kids because he is an orphan himself, seems to know exactly how to tackle the kids and their emotional turbulence.

This drama looks into how Jirou influences the kids, and how without him realizing it, he himself changed over time.

Watched this thinking it would be a show about, well, racing. But if you're just looking for action, you'll be disappointed. This show is so much more than that.

It is a brilliantly crafted show about the importance of family. I like how each episode is episodic (concentrating on one character), and yet ties in well with the other episodes in general.

Kimura is brilliant here, as always, and the rest of the characters are very well-casted. I found myself empathizing and sympathizing with every single person in the family, from the youngest to the oldest.

This is also the first time I watched anything with Ueno Juri in it, and she easily stood out as an amazing actress.

Certainly a heartwarming show one shouldn't miss out on.

great drama! the interactions between the characters are really good! Love the way jirou seems to understand the orphans and sort of like act like he didnt care ...

It was ok...there's not much to take from this show aside the relationship of Kimura Takuya's character with the kids, but somehow he manages to carry it and keep it entertaining. The kids were funny, but the story seemed a little undeveloped and the title might be misleading because there wasn't much racing at all. Give it 2 stars+1 for Takuya's performance, watch it if you're a huge fan of him, otherwise you'll find this a bit boring.

An enjoyable drama, with humour in the right place and at a decent pace, all the characters played their parts pretty well :D
