Not a bad drama but a bit slow. Starring Tamaki Koji (former member of Anzen Chitai & talented song writer),Asano Atsuko & Inohara Yoshihiko (V6). About a bunch of workers from a small town factory who rather play baseball than do their own work. Asano have to rack her brains to save the factory from being closed.

A combination of the fish-out-of-water scenario (city girl sent out to the sticks) and the little factory vs. the big corporation. My only complaint is Asano's hairstyle. With those bangs and her expressions, she often looked like she was about to go postal.

Love the first episodes when Asano Atsuko arrives and criticize the countryside!! so funny. A bit too slow at the end. I also thought that they will play more at baseball. The theme is not representative of the story.

Stars Tamaki Koji (famous song writer). Quite a light hearted drama about a career woman being banished to a small town factory.
