the story of this drama is definitely not boring and not something that we see a lot. during the time it aired, i am pretty sure it was new for it's time. First of all, the fact that it is about someone who decided to become an "at home dad" because his wife had work and he was fired. All in all, he could not find a job so it was his read more last resort. by taking the role of the house-man though and making friends with his neighbor he matured into becoming a proper dad for his child.

the acting, needless to say , it was outstanding. all of the actors definitely did great in this seeing as most of them have had a lot of experience too. abe hiroshi was once again great and the friendship between the two male leads was truly amusing.

the music was okay for the drama, quite enjoyable and i think that rewatching wouldn't hurt. I think it would still remain funny.

Ah one of my favorite dramas, that was also one of my first watched dramas. As you've read the summary you know this is about a dad who loses his job and so he stays home and takes care of the children while his wife works. It has a unique storyline, comedy, drama, and it's rather enjoyable to watch so I give the story a 10. I'm a big fan of Hiroshi read more Abe, so i might be a bit biased when it comes to the Cast/Acting but i really think they did a brilliant job, so for the Cast/Acting, i'm going to also give it a 10. The music was ok. As for rewatch value, i'm generally not a rewatcher, so this gets a 7 for rewatchability. Overall though it's a solid drama that everyone should watch.

    am i supposed to believe that 18 years old Ando Sakura (at that time - 2004) plays a role of 6 years old girl?

    Fun interactions between Abe's character and that of his neighbour stay-at-home dad. Fun to see as Abe's character makes his realizations about himself and his lifestyle so far...and perhaps discovers a new lifestyle for himself too. It's all about priorities. Very likeable drama. One of the few that made me genuinely laugh out loud-and that is a feat for dramas to achieve with me. I like how it challenges the gender sterotype. There were a few lines that are debatable to me but all in all a rather original and endearing drama.
