This drama revolves around a hockey team named 'the Blue Scorpions'. It tells the story of the team members, and especially revolves around Haru, the main character. He is a cold person, and doesn't seem to care about love, playing with it -- but maybe in his hockey only concerned mind there is a little place for love?

The best part about this drama was the opening sequence with Queen's song tbh.

I really liked it at the beginning but then really got annoyed with Aki. I thought she was pretty blank and boring. No real development of her character. She's just a good girl "who waits". I'm sorry I need more than just a good girl who waited.

That being said it's true that Aki and Haru have a good chemistry so it saves the drama. But don't watch it expecting interesting female characters.

Disappointed, it was not good as I expected it.

This drama really didn't have much of a storyline. Not to mention, that It was so slow paced and uninteresting, that I couldn't take finishing it.
with all the praise this drama gets I expected to love it, instead I just found myself really disappointed with it.

This drama had so much romance that the hockey ended up beeing pointless. I didn't care with the story and the characters, so it was just a boring show for most of the time. It really started great, but the last episodes were so painfull to watch that I just ended up falling asleep. Kimura Takuya delivers a good performance again, but having seen some of his other dramas I've got to say that it was just Kimura Takuya doing Kimura Takuya, I'm starting to get a bit tired of him because his roles are always the same.

pride was nice and cute, but im an ex ice hockey player and even though this series was sweet, i have to say that honestly the melodrama was a bit too much, especially on the ice, in real ice hockey its not like this series but ah well.. :)

the story was adorable though.
