That's the rating I would give for this Show. I've watched Voice, Mei-chan no Shitsuji and Honjitsu mo Hare, Ijo Nashi for season winter'09. Comparing between the 4 serials, Voice could give Love Shuffle a run for their money as the best drama for this season, however, giving the lower 8.1% rating in Japan Kanto region, I think this series is wayyy under-rated as compared to the rest(Although Honjitsu fared worse).

Love Shuffle is about 4 couples who are unhappy with their other half, and one day decided to shuffle their partners around to find that "chemistry", and ultimately decide if their original partner is still the one. Of course, given the controversial theme of exchanging partners, the way the show present it is instead quirky. They have peppered it with lots of humor in between and of course the emotions that ran through each character.

I also wouldn't deny that Tamaki Hiroshi and Matsuda Shota are pretty charming, not to mention the beautiful Karina and the cute Yoshitaka Yuriko, followed by the ever versatile Tanihara Shosuke.

In summary, Love Shuffle is fun yet serious. Definitely worth a watch!
