Ohitorisama (japanese drama)

This is a love story, more or less, of two people with age gap of 10 years between them. of course, what's interesting is that our hero is younger than our heroine and they're teachers, which i seem to understand is like forbidden. what the title means is, (also from my understanding) a perfect person, one who can do anything. or to quote directly the synopsis written, it means 'one person'. this synopsis is from mysoju itself, since i'm too lazy to write more now.
33-year-old Akiyama Satomi is a history teacher at the prestigious all-girls high school she once attended. She has earned the nickname "ohitorisama" (meaning "one person") for her perfectionism and capability to handle any work by herself. At the same time, the name also refers to her lack of romance. One day, a young man named Shinichi arrives at the school as a temporary instructor. He's ten years younger than Satomi, has only worked part-time jobs, and has neither money nor status. Although the other female teachers and students find him cute, he is completely not Satomi's type... or is he? Will love blossom between this unlikely pair?
well, seems interesting doesn't it? initially, i passed it a number of times as i didn't think i'd enjoy it much. i'm not into much drama, and sad stuff happening even though it's reality. i like dreams and happy stuff ehehe which is rarely found in reality of course. but once i started watching, i really enjoyed it. our heroine really made me root for her and there was a charm about her. as i kept watching her, she seemed to become even prettier if you know what i mean. our hero initially made me think that he was a weak boy and uninterested in life and all. but his character began to grow during the series and that was what's really good about it. he became better. their respective roles really suited them i felt. they portrayed themselves really well it was so believable that i kept getting worried about how it would turn out once everyone knew about them and all. of course, there were some really funny moments that made me chuckle too. overall i enjoyed it tremendously. hope you do too
