Anego (jap drama)

Naoko Noda, who works in a trading company, is called 'anego' by her younger co-workers. What is anego? It means older sister, but in this case, it's given as a nickname to Naoko, because she is like a big sister to her co-workers, who depend on her to give them advice about everything. This drama, based on a popular novel, depicts realistically how Naoko lives her everyday life, including her love life, the problems she faces and her uneasiness about the future.
i really enjoyed this series as it is very realistic just as the synopsis describes. in some ways, i find myself fortunate that i don't have to face the problems that she faces. that's so stressful, and i believe that we find that in reality too, not just reel.
there were comic moments and serious moments too, even psychological at times. the quotes that she gives usually in the beginning of each episode is note worthy. it also helps that the cast is good looking especially with our main leads, shinohara ryoko(naoko) and akanishi jin(akihiko,or kusa something...soryyy><)
i definitely recommend this drama, it's a good watch, 10 episodes which is just nice too, with a special as well. the special has some recaps and yes it starts off where ep 10 left off so it's kind of like the conclusion to the series with an open ending which is kind of obvious probably. you can find all the episodes on daily motion. enjoy all.
