Synopsis
Nationwide, there are now people called Community Social Workers (CSW), and their jobs are to attend to the poor and needy. One such person is Satomi Ryo, and she works at the Shitamachi area's Council of Welfare. The people that she meets in her busy working life are people afflicted with juvenile dementia, those who have shunned society and locked themselves up in their rooms, and the homeless. Ryo herself had been down the lonely road before, and as a way to pull herself out of her depression, she decided to work as a CSW in order to help others like her. She strongly believes that one can always start all over again, and it is her belief that helps her to move forward in life.

I was pretty skeptical of this going in. I don't have any faith in the government or things like social workers. Well these weren't exactly the type of social workers I would have expected, and I absolutely loved all the characters. In succeeded in giving me a warm fuzzy feeling towards humanity, and it's care for each other. Well, at least in Japan anyways, and I am truly inclined to think that social services really may be more useful and meaningful in Japan, but then when they showed real "Community Social Workers" at work at the end of a few episodes, the illusion was destroyed. Still I would call this a very good drama about a subject matter that I dislike.

A small, random, but sort of paradoxical point, the use of Perfume, a music group I really like, was the most inappropriate use of music I have ever witnessed in a drama.

You'll need a box of tissues for this one. Maybe three. A look at the less fortunate in Tokyo, from the homeless, to Fukushima evacuees, to Filipino immigrants, to car accident survivors, etc. Some of the episodes are based on real-life cases of Tokyo social workers. Powerful stuff, not your typical entertainment.
