For me the last two episodes destroyed the vibe in drama. I liked the darker side of the story and ep 9 and 10 made a fairytail from really good drama and it really dissapointed me.

I felt like this was a very important drama for families of today to watch. The issues are really quite relatable

A really good mix of mystery, drama and comedy.
ending was toooo happy to be true, but its warm to see them become a real family after all

So far, I am really impressed with this drama as well as Sho's acting.

I am not gonna say too much, since I don't want to spoil the experience.

Just this much: The main character isn't exactly nice and the drama has a lot of critism towards society so far.

If you like slightly darker dramas, you might feel intrigued to watch this one as well.

Update: I posted review on my blog now that I finished watching the drama! ^ ^ http://reonsoru.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/the-fabulous-world-of-japanese-and-korean-cinema-002-kazoku-game/#comments

Very good drama, quite disturbing at times as bullying is a very delicate matter.
First time seeing Sakurai's acting and enjoyed it. His character was interesting and complex, I think he did quite a good job portraying it. Same with Kamiki, I really liked his acting, especially in the last scene. Oh and soooo many plot twists, I was going crazy! Not to mention that ii nee phrase will hunt me forever lol

The ending though.

Was everything a lie?! We'll never know....

I really liked this drama, I had high expectations on this one because is rated here with 4.3. I'm not disappointed and ended seeing it in 2 days.
I can get way there's a recommendation for kaseifu no mita, because they both have that kind of psychological game were you don't really know exactly what is going to happen and what is the real truth, although this on is a bit heavier and darker sometimes.
Both Sakurai and Kamiki did an amzing job.

That scene in the end, after the credits and stuff, when Shinichi asks Yoshimoto if that story is really true, kinda left me wondering...
