After quitting his job, he spends his days meaninglessly, living in a house that his parents left behind. His life changes when, one day, a mysterious man appears in front of him. He introduces himself as Kotaro's former pet dog, Ten, and asks to move in with him. Could this man really be Ten? (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
a true slice of lifeDespite the magical premise, this show truly feels realistic. Kota's struggles and feelings while trying to fix his life are something I am sure every person can relate to. I understood Kota's apathy and depression, which made it so nice to see Ten help him get back on his feet.
While this show does have it's raw and depressing moments, it does not lack humor. At least once every episode I found myself laughing my ass off. I honestly commend the writers for not making me feel depressed the entire time I watched it.
As for the acting itself, I thought it was really really good. The acting can be goofy at times of course (to match what's going on), but the two actors show incredible range. During the serious moments of the show, you can truly feel what they are feeling. They show emotion without seeming forced or overdramatic. It genuinely feels like watching two real people go about their lives. Finally, the chemistry the two leads have is incredible. Just something about them makes them feel like a perfect pairing.
All in all, I would say get some chips, watch the show, and be prepared to laugh and cry (oh god, seriously, be prepared to cry) as you watch this heartwarming slice of life story.
