Because of her difficult childhood, Ayukawa Wakaba aimed all along to become a top class lawyer. Her dream finally came true and she's about to enter an international office but on the day of the entry ceremony, things turn unexpectedly bad. Having to find rapidly a new job, she is offered a position in an office managed by a charismatic single mother but she didn't know that her new job would be to babysit her five year old girl. At kindergarten, Wakaba meets again with Souta, a young man she took as a pervert in the subway. He takes care alone of his ex wife's son and is known as the ikumen star, the perfect houseman, all the opposite of Wakaba's ideal man. Despite their differences, is love going to blossom between these two?

A law school graduate with very high standards dreams of being a top-class lawyer. When things don't happen as she has planned them, she has to take the next best job and learns about the hardships of life and love while babysitting her bosses daughter and dealing with people way below her standard.

This surprised me so much because, against all expectations, I enjoyed it quite a lot. I initially thought it would be like "My Girl!!", only in reverse, but it wasn't really.

Also, it went against all clichés I've been constantly confronted with in just about every dorama I watch.

A strong-willed female lead and a somewhat weak male lead instead of the standard reverse.

A lady boss that was very likeable, supporting and a good mother instead of being a bossy, ruthless bitch that puts her career before her child.

Kids that weren't bratty, nosy and generally annoying, but really cute and quite mature.

Co-workers that were supportive and understanding, rather than planning one intrigue after the other.

So it was really quite refreshing.

Even the minor characters, such as the other dads, the law firm people and the pre-school people, were great and always helped the story to develop instead of annoyingly taking up time with their own side-story drama going on.

And I was really impressed with the child actors of Hinata and Pitaro. They are going to be great actors one day, because they did a fantastic job. They were actually *acting* and I believed them, unlike most kids who are all awkward in front of cameras and annoy me endlessly.

In this dorama I even liked Ryo. A lot. And I never like Ryo. That should say enough about this dorama. ^^

The main male characters have a similar personality, though one is the ideal son and the other is the ideal father.

Both are about a man who is raising his child alone. He meets a woman and falls in love with her. Their points of view are different; the man is caring and passive, while the woman is more aggressive and also selfish in her feelings. While showing the man her point of view he suffers. Seeing his honesty and gentleness she falls in love with him. Her love is the opposite of her goal.

I liked it until the last episodes. To tell the truth, I really think the ending was too hasty and half-baked.

And I still don't understand why she had to resign from Sakurakawa sensei's office, when she could have just asked to keep working there but in Japan.

@beautifur I know right!
I was hoping everything was going to be alright again and Sota finally would accept her feelings but then he went and ruined it even more :(

Oh well, it's good that this drama isn't predictable :)

Now, I need to stop crying and start waiting for the last episode. Both are difficult.
I'd love a sequel about older Emitaro and Hinata~ <3
