I wish there was something higher than 10 to give this. I usually hesitate and think to myself "so is this drama really a 10 then? As in perfect? Or do I just really like it a lot?" and I hem and haw for a bit until I finally just give in to how much I enjoyed it, while not completely sure about the rating. Just minutes into watching this drama though, I knew I was in for something big--it was going to be a all-out sap fest or an unbelievably good drama. Halfway through the series and I was already decided this the best drama I've ever seen in my life, and possibly ever will see.
I don't even know where to start--there were so many things that could have went wrong with this because it is an incredibly delicate subject and the plot alone gives a lot of chance of turning it into another drama filled with cheap sentiment and overdramatics. Not to say that this is not one heavy drama, but everything is dealt with realistically and there were no easy way outs for anyone. Every character had to suffer and come to turns with the tragic event and their own actions; no one person was always right and they didn't behave like anything but normal, sincere people. Everything in this drama was executed perfectly, the actors flawless.
Most other dramas can make you laugh, cry, or just pass the time. Aishiteru is truly something else though, and I can say in all honesty this is the first time that one truly touched my heart and moved my soul. This is by and far my favorite.

It's an interesting storyline. I commend the acting. Inamori Izumi especially. Nice theme song also.
But it's very slow paced and lacks any comedic relief whatsover which equals a lot of boring time. If you've watched one episode, you've watched the majority of em. It's very redundant. 5th episode was lame (writings weak). There are touching moments but none I felt truly moving. Final episode was somewhat weak. There was more goin on in the final episode than the first 9 episodes put together. This would have been better as a movie or a mini-drama/series. Or...just watch the first and last episodes and there's your story. :p

Awesome cast (especially the female characters), dealing with a huge taboo in our societies. Rythm is slow indeed but it fits perfectly the story.
Only flaw is that the event that triggered the crime wasn't very convincing nor very well played :/ (5th episode).
Anyway it's worth watching, it clearly is a superior drama!

I have been watching more serious dark adult themed dramas, again this was one of the recommendations by the members of this website. This drama is slow moving, but I loved the pace of the story. It really hits home and makes me reflect on my life growing up. Definitely recommend this.

Great acting from the mums! I'm giving this drama a 10 for exploring a dark topic from different perspectives, and in the midst of doing so, demonstrates the power of unconditional love and forgiveness.
