the series applied the style of using flashbacks in contrast with the present, which turned out to be quite a drag for us who hadn't read its manga. without detailed backdrop and introduction, the series felt rushed and at times, confusing. after more than half of the episodes, it was easy to see that the storyline was actually very simple and straightforward. instead of being a common romance, the series was unexpectedly twisted for a love story, which could be quite depressing as a whole.
