This home comedy tells the story of Kyoichiro (Tachi Hiroshi) and his teenage daughter Koume (Aragaki Yui). One day, the two ride a train together after visiting Kyoichiro's mother-in-law. He sees it as a chance to get to know his daughter better, but he ends up getting more than that - by some mysterious force, both Kyoichiro and Koume end up with their mind in the other's body! Unfortunately, they have no choice but to swap lives, pretending to be each other at school and work. --

Papa to Musume no Nanokakan is a bit of an oddball drama. Body-switching isn't a new idea, but switching between father and daughter? Yes, it's as awkward as it sounds.

For a short drama, Papa to Musume succeeds in being just about entertaining throughout. You get a good few comedy situations which are inevitable given the premise. More than that, it's a drama with a bit of a preachy moral about seeing things, in the most literal sense, from another's perspective.

Yes, it's cheesy. Yes, it doesn't really stay with you long after you've watched it. But the cast are likable and convincing in their roles (even though I think it would have been better if both father and daughter were given more time to establish themselves in their original characters before the switch happened, so the contrast would have been more apparent), and the overall premise was quite neat. If I had to give my main criticism, it's that the drama, in it's limited span, didn't go as far or deep as it potentially could have to tell what could have been a much more compelling story.
