Found this Japanese jewel and was hooked right off,due to its sheer simplicity of telling a very full story of finding & knowing self. This series artfully deals with a middle-aged 40+ woman who is forced into a journey of finding herself and being comfortable in her own skin. The host of characters who travel with her are quirky yet loving making the entire cast delightful & engaging. This is not for anyone looking for murder, mayhem, romance, and backstabbing - but if you are looking to take a break and partake in something that feeds YOUR inner self, this would be a great break. Easy-going, simple, appropriate soundtrack and just left me feeling good & it's only 4eps. Good story telling does not always needs 16, 24, or 50episode to make an impact.
