This work is a home drama featuring Shunpei Akagi, who just became a single father three months ago for some reason. When a childhood friend wrote on SNS that "# I am looking for a family" with a humorous idea, Shunpei decided to live under one roof with four adults and three children. They are depicted as having different personalities and values, and eventually becoming a "family". Edit Translation

I have mixed feelings about this one…

Japan really makes great family dramas, it brings a great message about staying together as a family, and I think overall it definitely got to the point. Everyone had conflicts with their spouse or family members, and this is no different from real life. I feel like many people can relate to this show.

Although I gotta say that I am partially glad that there was character development, I find the concept of strangers living together a little weird. I mean, you have two single mom’s and a dad move in the second floor after meeting each other for like what, days? Weeks? I think this would’ve been a bit more realistic had the restaurant been a “daycare” instead. And I actually agreed with Rei, who opposed from bringing her daughter to the care of people who aren’t even licensed babysitters. But then she just.. suddenly trusts them? I don’t know, it’s kinda weird. But I mean it IS the plot of the story, after all.

Daiki is a great actor man, I really have to give him huge credit for making me tear up. This is the second jdrama I watch of him, and each time he proves us that he is indeed an awesome actor. Of course, everyone here is so great at bringing their character into place.

One thing that really bothers me though, is how I repeatedly see this in literally every family jdrama I’ve watched, and that has to be the fact that there’s almost little scenes where you see two of the characters talk out between them. The kids and other adults would be behind listening to them, and it’s just like, dude. This should be a private conversation, not for you to be standing in the back and listening. It just lowkey ruined the sad moment for me, and does not bring out as much emotion as it should bring. The only scene that I can actually forgive was when Shunpei was talking to his friend about his deceased wife while Rei listened, because as always, Daiki makes a great job at portraying his character well.

Something that honestly really bothered me though was the hinted romance between Shunpei and Rei. It’s so obvious something was happening between them but of course, they never get together. But in a way, I guess it’s kind of realistic. Shunpei lost his wife only three months ago, so why jump on someone else? But to be more exact, why should there have been a hinted romance to begin with? The whole concept of these single parents really annoyed me, in other words.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched jdramas, and when that granpda fell, I couldn’t help but be like, “of course that was bound to happen” it ALWAYS happens in family jdramas. I think maybe it’s time to spice some things a bit when it comes to these types of dramas.

Other than that, I give this a 8.5. It’s good but not something I’d watch over again. I gave it a try because I was interested in the idea of seeing how Japan would portray a single father, and I’m not disappointed. They made it work wonderfully.
