I was really excited about watching a drama about hostesses. It is of course very sensationalistic as one should probably expect from the subject matter, it's the type of thing that often bothers me in other dramas but works very well here. I do have one problem, and sadly it's the worst problem to have, that is that the lead actress is totally wrong for the part. Just looking at her face, it's hard to imagine her even being a hostess, let alone a hostess out for revenge, or an "Empress". It's obvious that they wanted her to have a heart, and she does well at that, but they really needed someone with a different style to pull off the roles complexity. It's doubly sad because all of the rest of the cast was quite exceptional, especially the male actors. Otherwise, I found the story rather interesting in spite of, what I felt to be, rather weak motivation for the characters behavior. I especially liked how they had her changing cities and clubs frequently, as it kept it from growing stale. It had a major flaw for me, but I stayed intrigued, mostly because of the subject matter.

This is the female version of YAOH, in which the main story focuses among night club hostesses instead. Compared to YAOH though, this one has more indicated adult content although not explicitly shown. Story is overall pretty okay but sometimes you get the feeling that they keep repeating the same formula just changing the antagonist. It does suffer a bit from bad and 'wooden' acting but since the scenes are played pretty fast, it doesn't affect it too much. Overall an okay watch but with a somehow too 'cliche' ending

This drama is ok but i realised one thing,there were SOO many face slappings O_O. LOL. In this drama,two of my FAVOURITE actors were acting in it......matsuda shota and mokomichi hayami and it definately made the drama more interesting XD. Oh well,it's not just because of that. The story line is ok i guess. Another thing i really like about this drama is the dresses the girls wore. They're SO pretty! XD. Sad ending though

Some decent acting by Kato and Shota. Overall, the dorama was a bit too unrealistic, with the characters being overly simplistic and one-dimensional. The sets were well designed but a rather simplistic plot and weak characters made this dorama less compelling than it could have been.

The first half of the series was pretty good. Though the characters of the "bad guys" like Rina, Kaoru or Reiko were way too exaggerated. I really liked the series but I just can't uderstand why would anyone put miss Kano into such a role. I didn't suit her, it just wasn't believable.

I loved this drama so much that I watched it in one sitting. People may not like it because it's different than most japanese dramas but I think it was simply amazing. I would have loved to see a little more development in certain areas but I think the cast was very well picked.

I didn't expect this drama to be this good. My image of Rosa is she can act in the girl-next-door. Or an OL with romance in the office kind of role. However, she proved me wrong in this role as the hostess. Her strength with meekness personality pulls off well in this drama.

Reflecting back on this series, it's a total waste of time. Most of the characters were unbelievably one-dimensional. The lead actress (Kato Rosa) was weak and the main character pretty much just lucked out for the most part.

Yesterday I watched ep.1 and I don't really liked it. I felt somewhat strange and uneasy... Maybe is that I only need funny and simple doramas. I think I'll pass now and maybe in time I'll try again...

Interesting series into the world of cabaret clubs. Didn't know competition was 'fierce' and respect can be commanded for those who shine. Awesome stuff from Kato Rosa!

Pretty good. My biggest complaint was Ayaka's enemies were all so over-the-top-one-dimensional. Loved watching Leo Morimoto as a bad guy!!

Even though this drama is not similiar to Yaoh! at all, it is comparably good. In comparison it has a deeper touch and is more dramatic.

Far less captivating and intense than Stranger in the Mirror (Sidney Sheldon). I guess my expectation was too high.

Enjoyable in a strange way. Really outrageous and non-realistic plot. Ayana Sakai looked really good.

We rocketed through it! A total page turner, plot driven, and if it is a bit contrived that was OK.

Quite good, very interesting plot, it's a very dramatic dorama with a sad ending

A female version of Yaoh. Not as good as I expected but that's the hostess life.
