Tsubasa Hikoichi is a yakuza underling who runs a loan shark operation in Roppongi. Hikoichi is brutal and efficient, and has no compunction about cheating the weak and poor out of their hard-earned money. When Hikoichi's boss dies, his replacement, Takayama Gensuke, wants the young hood to prepare himself for an executive position, and orders Hikoichi, along with other subordinate bosses, to get a job in an elderly care facility. Suffice it to say, the position isn't what Hikoichi expected it to be...

The story of this drama is incredibly unique, at least compared to all the dramas i've seen. The Cast and Acting was terrific and as a result of both the Story and the Acting, I truly felt an emotionally attachment to the characters, and how they changed. The music also furthered my emotional attachment to the drama. While I don't like rewatching drama, Ninkyo Helper is actually a drama I believe I could rewatch, since the element of surprise enhances the story, but in general, it's not essential to making the drama interesting.

Overall, i'm giving this drama a 10, and I fell like every Jdrama fan who enjoys the Crime/Yakuza and Family genres, should watch this.
