Aki, Moeko and Midori are friends for a long time already. They keep each other updated on girls nights. While Midori is a single-mother with three sons, Mokeo can't find a boyfriend because her mother keeps bothering her. And Aki is together with a younger, aspiring singer, who she does everything for. At work she is known as a career woma who might have missed her chance to get married, but she just ignores them. That is, until her boyfriend cheats on her and she finds out he used her money and kindness to focus on his music (and girls). Aki saves herself by giving it her all at work, where she has to create a romance app for women her age. And to make a good script, she is to contact Takayama, a famous screenwriter that disappeared after a few hits and now tries to write a book. We follow these three women, on their way to find what is important to them and to see how their privat life as well as career work out.

This series was fun. Mostly because Shinohra Ryouko is a lot of fun to watch. I also love Kichise Michiko. I did not like any of the male leads, except for Chiba Yuudai, but he had too little screen-time. But aside from actresses I liked, I liked the story as well! Their problems were real and I enjoyed seeing them solve some of them and struggle with others. Their decisions were good, I liked the script and the acting for a big part and I enjoyed how things got wrapped up. The only issue I have, where I deducted a star, was that I somehow felt bored with some scenes. I wanted to skip through some parts. And also: how could he get together with someone who has a cat, if he is so allergic that he has to sneeze when she just is standing near him!? That was super unrealistic and even if it was to draw laughs, they kept it running too long to make the audience forget that it was an issue.

Aside from that, I think this is a mature romance drama that everybody who is grown up can enjoy. I wouldn't say every grown-up will likes this drama, but if you think seeing three ladies looking for romance and happiness sounds good, then watch it. I think they delivered a nice moral and it's more than worth to give it a try!

The whole story starts when we're thrown into Akis life. And in the end
we're torn away from the story in the same way. That's so Japan. All dramas feel like there is a proper ending missing. I know there will be no "happily ever after" forever and I know that their life goes on and might not be all roses and sparkles. But the whole ending just threw me back to why korean dramas are more popular than japanese ones. They made a good drama feel like a waste of time, because everything is just open and unclear.

I liked the drama in general, it was a good story with very lovely characters. I liked how the "girls" are and their friendship as well as the action with the guys. There isn't one particular guy I enjoyed the most, because there are just too many. XD

I really enjoyed this drama! Thought the last ep was a bit underwhelming though.

It was a surprise seeing Kichise Michiko play a woman who's not strong-willed and absolutely independent in every sense... I'm not sure I like seeing her play a weak character but she definitely did a good job on it, even if I personally don't like it.
Yoshizawa needs to stop getting these roles; he had potential when I first saw him in Kamen Rider Fourze and Kingyo Club but his latest roles are ridiculous and repetitive. No chara depth at all. And although I strongly believe Chiba should also stop getting casted in every freaking season as the young love interest, he was actually better in this than a lot of his other recent roles.
I believe I speak for a lot of people when I say that this drama was basically saved from being extremely flat only because of Suzuki Sawa's family and the boys' stories.

Ozaki Masaya?? I thought this have the same screenwriter as kekkon shinai and watashi ga renai dekinai riyu.

ah, same producer...okay...thats why these three dramas are so similar. :|
