It was pretty good
I think it will fight for the top spot with Doctors 2.
It was much, much better than expected.
It was like a serious version of Legal High.
But I never would have imagined that the ratings were this good.
It was super good
It was pretty good. They should have cast Miho Kanno to play the wife, not Aya Ueto.
It's been a while since I got excited while watching a drama
But is the Regional Tax Bureau really that arrogant in real life?
It was good but I don't think Aya Ueto fit the role
It's good that people seem to be rating good dramas like this highly.
I don't know if they'll be able to maintain these ratings though.
So it seems to have gotten good reviews.
I should have recorded it. I'm watching the next one.
Sakai still has that grinning face of his. But he's an actor who does his acting with his eyes. He's one of a rare breed.
I didn't watch, but this is honestly pretty amazing.
I think it will settle to around 15% next time.
I initially thought the story was pretty interesting as I was watching, then I suddenly felt like I've seen it somewhere before. And then I remembered that I've read the original already.
It's been a while since I saw a good drama like this.
But Sunday nights at 9 will always get absurdly high ratings for the first episode.
That was the case with Tonbi, despite it going in the same time slot as Daiouika.
Even that super boring Monster-something had a good show in the same time slot but it still recorded good ratings.
There were a number of painful-to-watch scenes, but I was drawn until the end.
It was so thrilling.
I'll watch it again next week.
This was good.
This made me want to read the original.
Masato Sakai's really great.
Aya Ueto seemed like she was the only one out of place there
I almost got bored midway, but things really picked up towards the end.
I wonder if this is how they'll go with every episode.
These numbers are really surprising
It suddenly became more interesting after the 1st hour
Dramas have made a huge comeback.
Aya Ueto really felt like she stood out like a corny joke.
Maybe she didn't read the original? It really felt like she was this useless actress who didn't think about how to portray her role in this drama.

Jun Ikeido's tweet:
They really put in a lot of effort in creating the drama Hanzawa Naoki.
I told them that I'd give them the original story, but they can have their freedom in making the scenes.
That's because I thought that would have been better if the original wasn't suited to become a drama.
It was very well done. I enjoyed it, not as the creator of the original, but as a viewer. Thank you.
I felt like watching a different drama during Aya Ueto's parts.
They should have cast an actress who was more calm than her.
I think Aya Ueto was acceptable like that though
But an average rating this high for a 2-hour program is really astounding

Sakai's a really good actor, and he really brings the ratings with him, not just based on this but also as seen in Legal High.
The drama started off with a depressing tone, but it started becoming more exhilarating once Hanzawa was determined to make his counter attack. It's been a while since a drama came out that's worth seeing.
So high even if it's just TBS wwwwww
I haven't watched dramas for over 10 years, but I actually found it interesting. It's been a while since I watched a full episode. And there may have been parts that were exaggerated since it is a drama, but I think it would have been better if they did away with those parts.
It was honestly good.
I'm torn about the 2nd episode though, as I'm excited and worried at the same time.
