Haru works at a university’s library. She is not particular about her meals and is more interested in keeping up with information on her favourite manga through her smartphone. One random day, Haru becomes depressed by the words of pity she hears about herself every day. That night, she heads to her regular drinking spot to soothe her hurt. She gets drunk with an androgynous guy called Ao-kun and they hit it off. The two of them end up living under one roof on impulse. However, the rule for living together is to make lunch boxes for each other? (Source: jdramas.wordpress.com) ~~ Adapted from the manga "Haru and Ao's Lunch Box" (ハルとアオのお弁当箱) by Machita (まちた).

Lovely story about self-love and friendship

I started watching this drama cause a friend of mine said the female lead Haru-chan reminded him of me.
After watching I can tell where he's coming from, but I can assure you I am quite different from her.

Enough about personal matters. :D This is a good in between watch if you need something lighthearted and maybe want to learn some nice receipes for Japanese bento. But most importantly this is a story about self-love and accepting other lifestyles aswell as accepting oneself.

Despite the typical Japanese overacting "Oishiiii" and the short episodes (about 20 min. long) this drama manages to make you feel the actions of and relationships between the characters are portrayed in an authentic way. I am always amazed at how quick some Japanese drama suck you right into the story and give you a warm fuzzy family vibe.

As their friendship progresses, and Haru and Ao learn more about each other, they also help each other to love themselves more. While both of them feel pressure of how their way of living differs from what's "normal", they constantly reassure each other that they are okay the way they are. I would tag the content LGBTQ+ although the focus isn't put on this issue too much.

Since this is a short drama I won't go more into detail, I just want to tell you the final message:

"Any colour is fine as long as we are living together happily. It's okay that there are many colours. That makes it more exciting somehow."
