Both deal with life and relationships in rural areas (compared to most dramas that take place in Tokyo or equivalent cities/districts). Both titles are slow, which makes you focus on the landmarks they were shot.

@foolad I know about the opening but what I had in mind was the whole ost (like the instrumental songs, there was this one tune I really liked), but thank you anyway :)

wow, this is seriously a hidden treasure. It looks quite average but once you start watching it you can really appreciate it. Just as others say - very relatable, good script, wonderful cast, great chemistry on every level, whether it's main couple (they're great but I also really liked Juunichi and Sayori), other or in terms of friendship. Every character is really nice and even through quite simple sketches their depth comes out (this si the thing about j-doramas theat I really love). Setting at the rural area is kind of fresh I think. And I really like the ost (if anyone knows where I can get it, please tell me!). Watch it!)

I loved this drama really much. It was very emotional, touching and enjoyable. And the scenery was simply beautiful *-*

While other dramas deal with similar plots, this drama felt so real. As a 22, almost 23 year old who recently moved out to the rural areas of the country, this really hit home. These people were extremely relatable. I came for Ikuta Toma; I stayed for the rest of the cast. There is someone to relate to no matter where you are in your 20's.

Well, I actually can describe this drama in one word: PERFECTION.
Oh, please, someone tell them to make more dramas like this! *_*
I'll definitely watch it again.

despite its shortcommings, this dorama was very close to perfect for me. A slow, laid back story, enjoyable characters, something you can watch to relax and feel good. opening theme (with them singing) was the thing that closed the deal for me. it felt so full of life, I never did skip it once.

And Joutarou & Nikaidou felt so good together. They seemed happy, content, at ease with each other; with all their constant lovers spat (sp?). It was fun watching them, seeing them oblivious as one by one people around them noticed how good they fit together. reminded me of kekkon dekinai otoko.

Just finished Osozaki no Himawari. This is the type of Jdrama that I adore. Friendship/Slice of Life/Little bit of romance. I loved it. If you like Ikuta Toma and this type of drama then I highly recommend it.
