Duration:9 Episodes

"Otome-san" is a term for mother-in-law, while "Kowai", which means "scary" in Japanese, stands for the daughter-in-law. Mizusawa Asako has been living under the constant nagging and criticism from her mother-in-law, up till the old woman's death two years ago. Just when she can start to relax and enjoy being the mistress of the house, her only son informs her that he is marrying a girl named Ririka. Both Asako and her husband, Hiroyuki, are against the marriage, but to no avail. Thinking of scaring Ririka, Asako tells her that they will accept her as their daughter-in-law, on the condition that the newlyweds move in with them. Ririka smilingly agrees to it, and thus they are married. Asako is determined to be a good mother-in-law, but feels apprehensive about it all.

I find it hard to get into family dramas very much. Overall this is pretty much as bland as I would expect, but it does have a few things going for it. The simple mystery of whether the bride is evil and scheming something or not works in keeping you wanting to watch the next episode, even if it would otherwise be dull. Additionally, it's not too terribly long at nine episodes which helps as well.

They tease a giant plot twist near the end that ends up entirely trivial. I wonder what I would have felt if it had been as serious as portrayed. It may have lead to a rather unique drama that I may have loved, but it may also have ruined the little bit of value this show does have. As it is, it lead to a really great ending, where everything explodes into a random and funny mess. It was definitely the high point of the series.
