Duration:10 Episodes

At a lunch-box delivery shop in an old part of Tokyo, a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law are bickering yet once again. Should bath water be drained from the tub or saved? Should food in the refrigerator be thrown out or kept? How should the household budget be spent? "These two never seem to run out of things to fight about" the daughter-in-law's husband thinks to himself.

Married for three years, the daughter-in-law is 28. She works helping out at her husband's lunch-box delivery shop and has a daily schedule busy enough to make her head spin. Blessed with a good head on her shoulders and a flair for athletics, she is the kind of person that takes action before the words come out of her mouth. Her one problem is the fact that she is overly opinionated.

When she was five-years-old, the daughter-in-law lost her mother. And when she was 20, her father passed away forcing her to have to drop out of college and start working. She finds herself changing jobs often. It may be that her experiences have caused her to be a lot more mature than other girls her age.

The mother-in-law is 57. She divorced her husband 17 years ago. He was a man that liked to drink and gamble too much. So she left him, and raised her three children on her own. On the personality side, the mother-in-law likes gabbing, but is a bit overbearing at times. She is also what some might consider to be a slob. And unlike her daughter-in-law, her mouth moves before her hands. Aside from that though, she is a people-person, and is considerate of others.

Two people that have personalities this different are doomed to not get along from the beginning. The daughter-in-law thinks the mother-in-law 'has no tact, is brazen, and always expects a reward for what she's done for others.' In turn, the mother-in-law thinks the daughter-in-law 'doesn't have a cute bone in her body, has a nervous disposition, and is just too stubborn.'

It is a miracle that the son/husband was able to get these two to live under the same roof in the first place. He has a bright personality, and is very hard-working. He is on the scatterbrain side, and drinks a little too much, but people seem to really take to him well. Though being caught up in middle of the trouble between his mother and wife, he always seems to come up with a plan to extinguish both of their fuses.

One day, this family is struck by tragedy when the son/husband passes away, leaving behind his loving mother and wife...

I'll definitely hate mother-in-law if i watch the first few episode of this drama... how she treats her daughter-in-law... i think most woman can't stand the way she treated her daughter-in-law...

bought it because i am a mizuno fan, but the quality was cheap. story was alright, but i couldn't stand the actress who played the mother-in-law. watch it only if you're a mizuno fan...

This is another insight into the lives of ordinary people in Tokyo, and it is always entertaining to watch and learn even though none of the actors are superstars.
