Funny and laid back [Rating: 9/10]
This drama was a true joy to watch! Hilarious, weird, laid back, charming and at times emotional, this one has become one of my favorite dramas of all time!
Set in the fictional town of Mahoro, Tada(Eita) and Gyoten(Ryuhei Matsuda) work as "handy men" taking different odd jobs from all sorts of clients. This leads to all kinds of situations, each more absurd than the other.
Everything about this show was perfect! Nice soundtrack, great chemistry between the main characters and just the right amount of quirkiness! Each episode is about 25 minutes long which I thought was great. It doesn't make the story overcomplicated, rather it makes you relax and enjoy each episode though it sometimes makes you wanting for more. Incidentally, this is probably the first time I've watched a drama from opening to ending for each episode!
I'd recommend those who haven't seen the movie "Mahoro ekimae tada benriken" to watch it first since it explains alot about their backgrounds which makes the show so much more enjoyable to watch and easier/quicker to get into.
Great Drama! [Rating: 10/10]
Just finished watching it a couple of minutes ago and I must say that it's one of the best dramas I've watched so far. It get's pretty emotional most of the times especially the ending. All in all it's a must see for everyone.
