Their 25-year-old second daughter Rika wedded a highly educated man and lives in Osaka but the couple are on the brink of divorce. Their youngest daughter 22-year-old Mika is also single and the moment she gets to start living on her own, she half cohabits with a man who does not seem like he will be a successful manga artist.

In fact this man is Yuka’s ex-boyfriend. What will the family be like the next day!? (Source: jdramas.wordpress.com) ~~ Adapted from the manga "Oi Piitan!"

Cast & Credits
M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E !!! ^________^Every now and then, the J-dramas scene comes out with what can only be described as "a total masterpiece", and this is precisely one of those instances! ^_________^
This "Oi, Handsome!" is, in my humble opinion, up there in the same (Champions') league as previous masterpieces like "Ore no Hanashi wa Nagai", "Saigo Kara Nibanme no Koi" or, to name also some movies, "Our Little Sister" and the fantastic "Kazoku wa Tsurai Yo!" Trilogy. All marvelous examples of the Himalayan heights that can be reached by the best of the best of the "family / slice-of-life" genre!
Seriously, I've finished watching this series twenty minutes ago, and I still have goosebumps thinking about it, so good it was! Wow, guys. Just wow. *Every single scene* is, imho, *simply perfect*. Perfectly scripted, acted, directed. The music commentary is perfect. The message is perfect.
Thanks for such gems, Japan! Arigatou!!!
So GoodKeeping in mind that I wouldn't be able to express the Charm of this drama, I will still try to give you a glimpse of this heartwarming tale.
Is your life a story? We often try to reach a certain goal but is that the end? This drama says *No*. Our day-to-day choices however illustrate what our next day gonna be like!
This story doesn't have a start or an end, it just takes you to the lives of Gentaro-san and his three daughters.
Every daughter is different but alike, they have their family peculiarities showing all over their essence but their life options are super diverse.
The eldest daughter "Yuka" is successful at her work but constantly analyzes every small thing. She's quick to change and ain't your big reliable sis but will listen to you without complaining. She needs a pinch of imperfection or else it's boring for her.
Second daughter "Rika" is your cool gal who maturely handles her problems and doesn't fuss over small things. She was the favorite character after the mother tbh.
The Youngest daughter "Mika" is in her experimenting phase and learning new things while being in mild disagreement with her father.
Father Gentaro is the sweetest bean you will ever find, he isn't too strict or interfering and cares about his family above all. He has his way of Judging people and becoming a little serious about small details when it comes to his daughters. He genuinely gives them the freedom which allows all daughters to return to a place whenever feeling down, I felt related to this drama on a personal level but the father aspect was a little sweeter hahaha! I guess my father is just on the stricter side but I can feel his worry about me all the time.
If you love a slice of life drama with some side love stories, give it a try! You won't regret it. Also, last but not the least, the mother was Awesome.
