Hiroko Yakushimaru plays Nanami, a 35-year-old wife and mother, trying to come to grips with her wants and needs--a job, a better relationship with her mother-in-law; good schools for her children. She and her husband Wataru (Kamikawa Takaya) live in a suburb of Tokyo with their three little children. Wataru's father (Ryu Raita) offers them a chance to save some money by moving in with him and his wife. Although Nanami doesn't get along very well with her mother-in-law (Sawada Ayako), she lets the prospect of having Wataru's mom look after the kids so that she can go out and find a job persuade her to agree to the move. Little does she realize the host of problems that move would create.

I'm thinking moms would enjoy this more... but some of these really are on target with the whole mother-in-law relationship with the wife, esp. culturally. :D Very cute yet funny... too bad it's so overlooked! Definitely check this out for light family comedy.

This is a great jdorama! It's quite funny, but at the same time it told me quite a bit about the pressures of exam taking in Japanese society, and the importance of what schools your kids attend.
