This is a story about 3 men that live together : Zen, Taro and Ken. One morning they wake up to find out that they are now fathers; which helps them to grow right beneath their own eyes.
Although different ages, all three were known as the toughest cats in Harajuku Middle School. Now the 3 of them live together in a house they call "Peace." It may sound like a nice place to live, but in actuality, it is closer to poverty than you can imagine. But even so, they bide by their motto of "a cheerful, fun, and funky" life.
Suddenly one day, they find a first grader, Akira, on their doorstep. With Akira, they find a letter from his mother that reads "please take care of him for a little while." The bad part, which they soon find out is that Akira isn't like them. He's been raised in a glass house, and is "soft," quiet unlike the 3 of them, which proves to change their lives as they once knew it.
Cast & Credits
Every single character did an amazing job. My favorite character was Ken. His story arc with his father was quite touching.
There is some form of romance, but nothing really that made me get invested in it. This is more of a "family" drama.
Recommended for those who want to watch a heartwarming drama about friendship and character growth.
It's a coming of age story for all 4 characters, despite their ages ranging from 6 to mid-30's. Three defiant, largely "good-for-nothing" men work so hard to provide a wonderful foundation for a child who has been betrayed by more typically "respectable" adults. They grow together as a haphazard family, while individually confronting their troubled pasts.
The sense of community and unselfishness reflected in this drama still makes me smile. The fact that it involves three good looking men caring for an adorable 6 year old, certainly doesn't hurt!
