Yoshimoto Kouya, a home tutor who has a mysterious past, visits Numata family upon a request to educate their son, Shigeyuki, who is withdrawn socially because of bullying. After Yoshimoto holds a short family meeting, he decides to accept the offer. As per the process of education, he disintegrates the family and drives it to collapse.
I honestly considered dropping this after episode 2. Because the bullying was really difficult to watch. It made me so freaking angry, but I figured it was a sign of great depiction. So I kept watching, and I'm glad I did.
This was my kind of psychology. I kept pending between loving Yoshimoto and hating him, and that means he's a versatile character that's difficult to get a grip on. Awesome.
For the other characters, I really didn't like the kid. Or the dad. I mostly felt sorry for the mother honestly, but I liked big brother. He was most interesting. Also, I realized I recognize the actor (!) and I like him a lot so. All good.
On a kind of side note I thought his actual girlfriend was a very refreshing character even though she didn't do much haha.
The actress girl with three personalities was nice. I didn't even suspect her when she showed up again lol so. Well done script.
About the backstory. I... thought I'd hate it, but I kind of came around just at the end? The explanations worked for me after all. So I'm satisfied. (Especially with the very end open endingssss)
What I liked most I think, was all this chaos in such a pretty little wrapping that you could never tell. I like those stories, where you just have to dig a little on the surface for things to come crashing.
(Literally. That was nice)
Also this is the second drama I've seen with Sho and he was kind of the same last time wasn't he haha? It was good though, I like him.
Overall, very good. Definitely good as post-school drama when I didn't want to do anything besides lay on the couch, since it really needed some focus haha.
