Kisaragi Sumi is a 20-year-old university student. But do not be surprised that she is a 65-year-old inside. Under pressure to help out with the family business from a young age, she could not have a youth. Even afterwards, she devoted her entire life to taking care of first her grandmother and then her father and mother. Sumi finds herself turning 65 without ever having had a boyfriend. She takes a little pride in having lived with integrity. But after her mother passes away, she has the sudden thought of regaining her youth once more and making a fresh start in life... A miracle happens to her. One day when Sumi wakes up, she has the appearance of a 20-year-old! Despite being bewildered by this unbelievable reality, she introduces herself as Sumire and gets another try at youth.

[Available on Viki as of Jan 2021] This one is a little weird - a supernatural yarn about an aging woman who's granted a return to the body of a 20-year-old by a cat-spirit (whose human form is played by Oikawa Mitsuhiro, who played the villain in the '98 drama "With Love.")

Despite the bizarre fantasy premise, the "What if?" element of the story is good, the device of "an incredible secret only the lead character and you the viewer know" and the Cinderella-like daily deadline that transforms her back to age 65, are consistently fun, and the acting is excellent by everybody.

Particularly enjoyable are the scenes where the wisdom of the 65-year-old is applied to the often foolish actions of the people around her 20-year-old persona - the way she reacts as a result.

On the downside, the story lacked some needed dramatic punch, and the ending was a little too convenient for me. Still a worthwhile watch if you're into this kind of fantasy setup.
