Naoko Noda, who works in a trading company, is called "anego" by her younger co-workers. What is "anego"? It means "older sister," but in this case it is given as a nickname to Naoko because she is like a big sister to her coworkers, who depend on her to give them advice about everything. This drama depicts realistically how Naoko lives her everyday life, including her love life, the problems she faces,and her uneasiness about the future.
Cast & Credits
Kudos to Shinohara Ryoko, this is a role excellently portrayed. Jin's character, however, is far too underdeveloped for it to be lead material. Anego's chemistry with the supporting lead was much more explosive than anything between Anego and Kurosawa, so it leaves you feeling a little disappointed.
Overall: Through ups and downs, through good and bad decisions, and through a hell of a lot of alcohol, you find yourself loving Anego more and more. This is a show I'd recommend to anyone with a glass of wine, who feels up for an evening of introspection.
