Kyoichi Suzuki is an average college student in his junior year. Although he's not in one of the top universities, he's satisfied with his college life studying architecture. Kyoichi left home and is finally on his own, living in a beat-up apartment in Tokyo. However, this apartment building is home to some out-of-the-ordinary residents, who are always bugging Kyoichi. His next-door neighbor hits Kyoichi up for a loan when he finds out that Kyoichi just got paid. His other next- door neighbor who works at a nightclub, always calls Kyoichi, demanding him to come pick her up, because she's so drunk. Other than that, Kyoichi is satisfied with his normal life, until he meets a girl one day...

Kyoichi comes home from his part-time job as a night-time security guard. He returns to his room to find a girl sleeping on his bed-a girl he has never seen before. She looks a bit older than Kyoichi, and is quite beautiful. Kyoichi can't believe his eyes.

Kyoichi closes the door, and goes outside to the entrance of the apartment, to make sure he's in the right apartment and room. There's no mistake. He returns inside...but the girl is gone.There's nobody in his room. Was it just his imagination? Was he hallucinating? Kyoichi can't understand what just happened.

Later, he discovers that something is missing from his grocery bag-the Chinese noodles he was looking forward to eating are gone...

This is how Kyoichi first meets Surumi Kataoka. After they meet, Surumi continues living in Kyoichi's room.

She points to an apartment visible from Kyoichi's room, and says that the guy living there dumped her for another girl. Surumi says that she's waiting to check out the girl she was dumped for. Kyoichi doesn't know if he ought to believe her or not.

All Kyoichi knows is that while Surumi is such a charming girl, the expression on her face is sad at times.

Kyoichi is not that disappointed about sharing his room with a cute girl. He starts to think that this lifestyle may go on forever, until one day, Surumi suddenly disappears-just like the day she suddenly appeared. All she leaves for Kyoichi are unanswered questions.

It's hard to say there is anything special about this drama. It is slow, self-indulgent and abounds in characters that are vaguely impossible understand. Their motivations, selfish or otherwise, become boring after a few episodes in. Recommend only if you like the actors, but even that may not suffice. My favorite roles were bit characters with just a tiny hint of comic relief. As for the main leads, I could not care one way or another if they ever got together or not.

After watching a hella lot of k-dramas, i stumbled across this while searching for one sided love stories and believe me when i say there are not many better than this in this genre. The best thing about this show was the main lead's inner monologue before taking any action or while thinking about his feelings and others.
You can see the influences from maison ikkoku(a classic Japanese manga and anime). For anyone who has seen or read it you know how frustrating and over the top the side characters were. However in this show they were rather helpful and understanding of the situations. Their dialogues were one of the best in this show.
I know the rating for this show is kinda low on mydramalist. I think i found this show at just the right time in my life. If you want something that shows the transformation of a young boy into a young man this is kinda the right thing to watch.
