i absolutely agree with @sarahohimesama that's why i prefer japanese drama!

as usual nino did a great job, among arashi he has the best damn acting skills
when he cried, OH MY BOY !!! i cried not because the drama! i just can't stand watching nino cry =(
his expressions + his personality = AWESOME ~
the story is good though it's purely about family but so good
it's make me respect the japanese society more than before =) ~
love both theme songs ♥
and yeaaaaaaaah i almost died when aiba show up in last episode =$

I can't say I've seen too many things that made me cry with the first episode, but this show managed to pull that reaction quite unexpectedly. I do so hope this ends somewhat happily as I'm worried how much crying I've got to look forward to with the coming episodes. ^.^;

one of the must good dramas i ever watched!.. well as expected from the japanese :D i mean their dramas are pretty serious and enjoyable at the same time.. i really learned a lot from the japanese dramas i'm not exaggerating!.. unlike korean dramas its just frustrating and always give me a false hope with their fairytale-like stories T-T

Freeter is one of those dramas that i really got to learn lots of things from .. to not look down on ones work nor give up on having a steady job.. to respect parents and take care of them.. its just awesome!! thats why i love Japan and Japanese people :)

With the first episode I bawled. Almost every thing Nino has been in has left me in tears (good and bad). But with episode 2 I am raging. lol

I'm looking forward to what other emotions this drama pulls out of me.
