He drinks alcohol a lot now and does a live 30 minute radio show in the early mornings, while occasionally attending fan meetings. One day, Masayoshi Hayakawa meets two young girls, and a young boy, all in middle school, and learns that he is the father of the girls. He begins to take care of the girls and boy, but has to hide their existence from his management office, who are just looking for an excuse to drop him from his contract.

Cast & Credits
Seigi's way of thinking is definitely unique, to say the least; but I have to say that I agree with at least 50% of it, that is to say, I think along the same lines or I've had the same thoughts before, though I'm also pretty good at being like Kokoro-chan and keeping my feelings to myself. In a (very) long way, what I'm trying to say is, this show is something all families can relate too. Each character in this show's story had a very relatable, very tangible familial feeling to it; I could relate to at least everyone in Seigi's "family" at least once or twice.
This show is definitely Odagiri Joe at his best; his charm shows through with each episode and it is amazing to watch Seigi grow alongside each person who he regards as his "family", whether he knows it or not.
I can see why this show got cut short, but I also disagree with it being cut short. Just as the show seemed to be taking off in the right direction, it ended. Although I do like how it ended. This show is a very sweet, very relatable, talented, unique, tangible, honest and real story about life, friends, and family. It isn't one to be missed.
At first Hayakawa Seigi may come off as a selfish, arrogant guy still stuck in the past in his own little world. But quickly we see that there's more to him and it's really admirable how he stays true to himself and his ideals. Odagiri Joe does not disappoint. The children are of course adorable, but they also show how discerning children really can be. The characters each have their own charm that keep the drama from being boring. It's nice to watch something with such a positive mood where all the characters are really supportive of each other, and I found myself rooting for them also.
This just goes to show that a drama does not need to involve too many dramatic or action-packed elements to still be considered an excellent watch. I would most definitely recommend this if you're looking for a lighthearted, feel-good Japanese drama.
