Duration:12 Episodes

Welcome to the comical and loveable adventures of seven men and women about to turn 30. Sometimes humorous, often poignant, each episode reveals the joys and tribulations of young men and women who stand at a turning point where they can no longer approach work or love as a halfhearted game. The central character is a young office woman, who is a word-processing wizard and at the center of a love triangle. She and her six friends have been together since elementary school. The magazine writer was once interested in her, while the dental technician is working through the struggles of being a single mother. A Japanese language instructor, two ladies' men (one working at an advertising firm and the other at a savings and trust bank), and a woman who works at a major trading firm round out the rest of the main cast.

One of the first drama's I watched!! I can't believe how young everyone was at that time. Now they all play the Dad or Mother of all the currents stars. Yes, a time capsule is involved and the soundtrack was by Matsutoya Yumi.

One of the first, maybe the first, of the "classmates 20 years later" scenario. Not too bad.
