Letter rating: B+
While I’m normally not an overly emotional person, I found myself brought to tears a few times during this show. The passion and dedication that Tanaka Aiko (Kanno) has for her job and her patients is awesome. I think it was that character that made me cry more than anyone.
I don’t want to say too much about the show because, really, everyone should watch it. There is no romance so don’t expect hearts in anyone’s eyes. For those of you that are squeamish, there is a little bit of blood but nothing overly gorey. It’s just good drama.
