A Clinic On The Sea Review

Title: A clinic on the sea
AKA: Umi no Ue no Shinryojo
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 11
Broadcast period: 2013-Oct to 2013-Dec
Cast: Matsuda Shota, Takei Emi, Fujiwara Noriko and Fukushi Sota.

In Japan there are a lot of small inhabited islands where there aren’t any doctors, so the government made a boat that is filled with medical equipment and travels from island to island and treats the people. Sezaki Kota (Matsuda Shota) is newly hired doctor who is about to travel with the crew. He is a skilled and talented doctor with an amazing calm in every crisis situation, but he has one weakness: he falls in love in matter of seconds. Every single time he thinks too much of a situation and believes he is in love with any pretty and young woman. On the boat he befriends Togami Mako (Takei Emi) a nurse who at first didn’t believe him as good doctor, but as time passes she realizes how good he is as a doctor.
Together with a crew they treat the people of the islands, and help solve their problems - and try to make Kota stay on the boat, not off trying to wed every beauty he sees…

I rather enjoyed this drama, even though I didn’t expect I would and I found that the story was a bit more fun than dramas alike (Unubore Deka). It did strike me too familiar with Unubore Deka, but hoped and expected it to be a bit more about doctors, as it is about doctors on a boat. It honestly had too little medical in it, and was a bit uncategorized, since I was not sure what the drama was really about. We have a love story, a man doctor that falls in love with every girl he sees, and a lot of family issues, but not general theme - except comedy.
All in all a good drama with good actors and funny screen play.

☆☆☆½ / 3½ out of 5 stars
