Deluxe version with Proper English subtitle
The main characters of "Searchin' for My Polestar" are 7 friends that met at college while in the astronomic observation club "Sagittarius." Being in the club was just an excuse for them to go to the beach in summer, and skiing in winter. Actually, the only time they ever observed any stars was at summer camp during their senior year.
Dreaming of a bright future, the seven exchange vows for eternal friendship. However, over the next several years, their busy schedules cause them to begin drifting apart.
It's been 3 years since that summer when they laughed together gazing at the stars. Will their friendship continue to drift farther and farther apart? Or will they manage to strengthen their friendship again? --Fuji TV

||Great Drama !! [Rating: 10/10]
Great Drama! I have been wanting to watch it and I was not dissappointed.
The show is very touching and meaningful. Friendship is very important and the bond between is very touching.
The actors and actresses has very good act, especially during towards the last part. Ending was a bit sad though, but life still moves on.
Manami is really great in this show!!! I think that she acted very well in it.. daisuki!

||Sorry... too un-original. [Rating: 4/10]
If you've never seen, or for some reason can't remember, Ai to iu na no moto ni, go for this one, the faces here are fresh and talented but the plot is WAY too similar. And then people in this site dare compare Boku Dake no Madonna to Long Vacation...

||Ii yo! [Rating: 8/10]
I'm about halfway through the show. Plotwise the show was kind of weak from somewhere around the beginning, having parts which occassionaly made me snigger in disbelief. The gorgeous cast and the habit of watching a Jdrama every sunday night had me following the show though, and it's good i did that because the plot has grown so much more engaging. Yuka/Tomoya is especially enchanting and portrays so well the struggles inside him your heart goes out to his character when he decided to, at a function, to --- i wont post further more cos this would be a potetial spoiler! ---
i'm glad they're showing this over here every sunday night now, there would be something to look forward to each weekend! also the ending theme song by Mika Nakashima is wonderful and sums up the mood perfectly.

||Give it a chance [Rating: 9/10]
I would say this drama is one of the better ones around, at least those shown by the local tv station. Only caught it from epi 5 or 6, but got hooked. Every epi, there is something that touched my heart. Its really a good drama really, wish people would have bothered to watch it despite it not having the usual well known jap artistes. Joe Odagiri is kakoii! haha

||Great Drama [Rating: 9/10]
This really was a great drama, one of the few really, really meaningful dramas that I've seen thus far. I loved how the series developed each character and there was not one person out of the Sagittarius group that I disliked. In fact, I could almost say that I admired each one of them to a certain extent.
The theme of friendship is really strong in this series and the fact that they were able to pull through so many of life's struggles because they helped each other was really touching. I also liked how it dealt with the idea of achieving your dreams, no matter what they are, no matter what position you are in. The positive note overlies the fact that there were so many downs in each person's life. I really loved this series.
I believe each actor and actress did a superb job. ^_^
