Can I say that this drama caught my attention because of the three main actors?
The time slot is so-so I guess, but still it doesn't matter for me.
I look forward seeing this drama, my first of 2015. It's fun to see Ikuta Toma and Oguri Shun again, but if completely different roles from last time ^^
Also, to kick off the year, Arashi is making the theme song, a bit unexpected, yet I do not complain. What I have heard so far of the song I like ^^
I hope I can follow the drama along the original broadcast, we'll see what happens ^^
