TV Station:TBS


"A single 39-year-old man who cannot get married" and "a divorced 32-year-old woman who doesn't want to get married again". The unlikely couple has enough trouble as it is, but with their nosey parents, their problems grow even bigger. This funny yet touching home drama asks viewers what family and marriage are. "In the current style of life in which people increasingly choose not to get married, this drama will make viewers think about the role of family and marriage once again" the producer says.

Daisuke (Shingo Katori) works for a stationery manufacturer and enjoys being single. One day, a fire bell goes off at the apartment he recently bought. Daisuke accuses one of the residents, Hanako (Juri Ueno), who thinks her room is on fire. However, it is actually his father, Youzo (Toshiyuki Nishida), who smoked out Daisuke's room when he was cooking. To make matters worse, Daisuke's troublemaking father brought his son-in-law to live all together. His comfortable single life suddenly comes to an end...

It's a dorama very boring at the beginning, those ones you think it's a waste of time watching them, but I decided to give it a chance, and now I can say I don't regret. When the feelings of the characters start to flow is when it become more interesting, seeing that they weren't so plain as I guess in the first episodes. The plot is easy and simple, the struggle between living alone or not. Two neighbors who have decided the way of the solitude, will have to share their space by surprise with their respective relatives, during that time they have to learn to share and appreciate the values of the family. The cast is not so splendid, but the performance of Juri Ueno is remarkable, it's difficult to believe is the same actress who play the Nodame role in Nodame Cantabile. Superb! It's worth a mention apart seeing the logo of FC Barcelona Soccer team here. Forsa Barsa!

Very nice dorama about the importance of family (and more generally, good ol' values) even in today's world, where people (just like the two leads in the 1st ep.) often stay alone thinking they'll manage to find happiness that way. But - quoting from this dorama - "two is better than one, and three is better than two". Et cetera, et cetera...:)

Sort of a mash up between "Kekkon Dekinai Otoko" and "Saigo Kara Nibanme" with the old terminal illness cliche thrown in. It might have worked better if either of the lead characters had any redeeming personality traits.

I enjoyed the first two thirds of this drama but the last part was a bit of a let down because everything became very predictable. Nevertheless it is still worth watching and all the cast gave a really good performance.
