Nose Karina, Yoshitaka Yoriko, Oshima Yuko, Inamori Izumi, Tanaka Kei 

Drama Rating: 4/10     Neck Score: B

I loved this show right up until the ending and then they ruined it, so I hated it.  It's supposed to be realistic and a that's life type of drama, but bad writing is bad writing.  It's a drama about three girls who decide to live together for various reasons, including the fact that it's cheaper, not lonely, and more fun.  They are all having different problems with love.  One is a tomboy who can't get over her best friend (who she only dated for 2 weeks).  One is a player who works at a club to pay the bills while she desperately tries to get her dream job.  One is a "sticky note" type girl who is so reserved and traditional that she is considered "too heavy" to date.  They also have to make a big deal out of her being a virgin.  The tomboy tries to make it work with her bestie, who then tells her he's getting married, the player falls for a married man (the tomboy's boss) and the sticky note girl looses her virginity but finds out it's not worth it when her boyfriend can't trust enough.  The worst part is there really isn't enough character growth to justify the fact that they all pretty much end up right where they started.  It's supposed to be girl power and not a romance, but there was too much romance that suddenly became anti-climatic at the end that it was dumb.  Fine, just kill our happiness to make your point.  That was lame.  The dudes in it are ok looking, with some good necks an some less good necks, but since they aren't the focus, it becomes irrelevant too.
