Ieji Hisashi, a salaryman who works for a securities company, has a fuzzy memory of the recent last five years because of an accident at his job posting. His wife of five years, Megumi, and their 4-year-old son, seem to wear masks. He can neither tell their facial expressions nor their emotions. He also struggles about with his love for them. On the other hand, Ieji feels an attachment to his ex-wife, whom he divorced five years ago, and their her daughter. What sort of days did he have in those five years which are a blank to him? Ieji sets out on a journey to find his past self with a mysterious bunch of 10 keys that he has. He becomes aware that he was a cold, career-minded man before the accident, and the persona that is gradually revealed is beyond the imagination of his present kindhearted self. (Jdrama Weblog)

My Take

Long story short, Takuya-kun's Ieji is involved in an industrial accident . . . 


. . . that leaves him with a lapse in memory once he recovers from an intensive few months of physical therapy.   

He's a new man who is confused as to who the old Ieji was and ends up embarrassed as each episodes reveals bits and pieces of that past.

The old Ieji was hard-ass, work-driven, and callous on and off the job. 

He wasn't honest, diligent, or family-oriented and harbored a great deal of resentment that led to his being who he was prior to the accident.  

He's left with ten keys on a large hoop ring that he must figure out their use and value in order to uncover the past (10 keys equals 10 episodes).  

My boy hasn't lost his shine! 

He's as bright, effervescent, and sexy as ever.

Adored this one start to finish and am sad that it had to end.  

There was an amazingly beautiful intermittent tune that played throughout the ten episodes. 

I want it but am unable to find out the details in order to download it.  

Unfortunately, the subs were deplorable.

. instead of ?

Still, I highly recommend that you watch this one.
