The plot might seem weird, but don't let it stop you to try watching. It's not about incest at all. It's more complex than that.

It's a good drama. Emotionally intense.
Shida's acting deserves a praise.

It could not work in 4 or 5 episodes. Kajikawa and Negishi are an important development lines because that is the secret behind the secret. The secret behind the secret is one of the most important tune of the story, that make the love presented here more transcending. It is not only about the love of a couple. The line of Souma cannot be cut also, because it has great influence to Naoko.

I was completely blown away by Shida Mirai's acting in this one, girl only gets better and better! Don't let the "different" plot scare you from watching this one, it's a really nice drama!

I was like "...uhhh" at first but like some others said, it's not just surface-incest and bodysnatching. There's so much more to this drama. Shida is as superb as ever, she only gets better. I think my favorite thing about this is its exploration of relationships from an angle I have not seen before. It's deep and reflective and very honest.

A nice drama, but it would work better with less episodes...maybe 4 or 5.

It's a pretty interesting drama and not as bad as some people thought it would be with the "incest" (explained under the spoilers).

She is so convincingly changed into Naoko that it doesn't really seem too weird (I was more squicked out by older actor and underage actress at a certain point ).


I think I'd have to read the book to fully understand this story though. BTW, I found it has been translated into English under the title "Naoko" if anyone else is looking to read it.

The role requires her to talk spontaneously as a mother twenty years older than her typically would. A challenging task to do convincingly, when you think about it. This series has been pretty good so far and is hinting at getting even better.

I was apprehensive before this started, but after 4 episodes, I think Shida Mira is amazing in this.
