Moteki has be one of the more entertaining dramas that I have watched over the years. In fact, TV Tokyo has been producing some pretty quirky productions and they have made this their selling point for their dramas. And since Moteki is a late night drama, you'd expect some scenes to raunchy according to Japan TV standards, which is still pretty conservative as compared to other regions.

Moteki is a general term in Japan for someone becomes popular and attractive to others. Moriyama Mirai stars in this drama as Fujimoto, who is unpopular with girls, not fantastic in work and basically no direction in life. All that changed suddenly when four of his female acquaintances suddenly called him for a catch up. Will Fujimoto, the Moteki finally find love among the four?

And since it's a late night drama and the theme of Moteki is about being popular with girls, eye candy is natural for this drama. In fact, the actresses featured in this drama is pretty popular, such as Nonami Maho, Matsumoto Rio, Kikuchi Rinko and Mitsushima Hikari.

Okay, I got to admit I watched this drama for eye candy and I pretty much know that TV Tokyo's offerings is more on the entertaining side, especially for this genre of dramas. However, the only difference of this drama is that the actor and actresses who agreed to star in the drama are pretty power packed themselves. Hence, despite the loose plot, I thought each of them gave their best abilities to act out their respective roles. Hence, if you're watching this drama, just take everything with a pinch of salt and just relax and enjoy all the fun on offer in the drama. Afterall, why so serious for a after midnight show?
