Kuki Reiko is a single 27-year-old who works in the accounting department of a mid-size toy manufacturer. An incident from her past makes her live a frugal life, only buying the necessities. A year ago, she found small dishes at a secondhand store that she liked immediately. Since then, she has been returning to that shop, still debating whether to buy them or not. Finally, when she decides to make the 1680 yen ($15 ) purchase., she enters the secondhand store with great anticipation, only to have it dashed when she sees a couple buying the small dishes on a whim. Imagine her surprise when she recognizes Saruwatari Keita, her boss‘s son! A few days later, Reiko goes to work only to find Keita in the accounting department. His father got angry at his wastefulness and sent him there to learn the value of money. As the frugal Reiko is best suited to teach him, he will find himself an apt student. But will her advice be just about money? (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Promising series cut short due to tragedy

My First Thoughts:
Being Miura Haruma's final work before his sudden and tragic passing, it was hard to watch without thinking that we have lost such a kind soul and great talent... but at the same time, I wanted to honor him by watching this through the end. And I think those in charge of the drama may have similar sentiment when deciding to air the series, albeit a shortened run and necessary changes/editing needed in light of the circumstances.

Thoughts on the drama itself:
Watching the drama for what is, I thought this was totally the type of drama I usually enjoy. Fairly light-hearted, great cast, an uplifting soundtrack and theme song, and the development/interactions among the characters. What stood out to me was how the drama addressed our relationship with money. While the main leads have different philosophies in how to spend money, we also see that other characters' relationship with money ranges from hatred of money, pressure due to money, sacrifices made for money, etc. It was an interesting theme that I was looking forward to the drama to explore, along with character relationships that had seeds of development.

The full potential of this drama will be lost due to the circumstances, but at least I got to know of it. And the loss of this drama pales in comparison to the loss of Miura... rest in peace, and thank you.

All good things come to end too soon...

I started watching this series because the synopsis was interesting. You always see romance happen in the work place. However, most dramas don't really dive too deep into what the company actually... does? I like that the main focus in on Kiku's personality as she is an accountant for a toy and children's entertainment company. Miura Haruma's character was annoying at first (to me); however, seeing Kiku slowly open herself up to him, little by little, was refreshing. As Kiku started to feel more warm towards him, I started to get that feeling, too. Plus, Miura's range in this series goes from childish/silly, to empathetic/home-y. I'm really sorry to hear about his passing. I think, out of respect for him, I'm going to dive a little bit into his art and music. I'm sure he's someone I would've liked had I discovered him when I was younger.
