Sosuke Nakata is just your everyday salaried worker. He is a serious guy, whose life mostly consists of going back and forth to the office each day. One day Nakata just happens to meet a certain woman by coincidence-top star, Hikaruko Kirishima. Just by talking to her, Nakata is left standing feeling like he has just seen a dream. Several days later, Kirishima calls an emergency press conference. And there she announces..."I am now dating a gentleman by the name of Sosuke Nakata, a salaried worker, whom I intend to marry." Nakata has no idea about what happened at the press conference. He also doesn't know what lies ahead for him at work, and about Hikaruko's true intentions. Written by Sonja Pavkovic

Notting Hill It's Not
29 March 2004 | by Mark-129See all my reviews

A superstar actress looking for a place to escape the heat during filming, wanders into the offices of a catering firm. There, she meets a salesman who is so shocked, he allows her to walk away with his suit jacket.

This is only the beginning of a long comedic courtship. Despite seeming to have little in common, the two constantly find themselves in each others company, oblivious to the bond growing between them, although friends and co-workers see what is happening all too clearly.

It really should be noted that the leading man gives a towering performance near the series end. During the series he retained a low key, almost boring demeanor. However, alone after seemingly losing the love of his life, his raw emotion explodes in a scene of both passion and pain. Kudos for this.

Filled with multiple subplots, pathos, broad humor and moments of great frustration for the viewer, this Japanese drama perhaps is too long for it's own good, but still worth viewing for those who enjoy "love conquers all" stories. But, be warned, these lovers are brought together kicking and screaming.
