Kitami Yusaku is a middle-aged actor. Nothing fancy: he lives alone in a small apartment and has a very normal life made of waking up, cooking breakfast, going to work (small parts - he's the typical "byplayer", as they're called), coming home and falling asleep in front of the TV. This simple routine is interrupted, every now and then, by fleeting encounters with various people (a colleague asking for advice, a journalist interviewing him, a former classmate and captain of his high school baseball club visiting from the countryside, an old diva from the Golden Age, his ex-wife, etc.) with whom he ends up sharing a meal and more often than not getting a little bit of heartache in the process.

I've watched this "Tasogare Yusaku" intrigued by the lead, whose tremendous acting talent I had previously admired in "Mushoboke", and despite the synopsis that didn't make it sound that interesting (but I soon realized that the synopsis was really inaccurate and terribly misleading - BTW, I submitted a new one, hopefully it'll get approved soon).
Anyway, I'm happy to say that this drama has surprised me very positively; it reminded me a lot of "Tokyo Sentimental" and of the various "...no Satsukyu" dramas. It's part slice-of-life, part "iyashikei", part food drama, with a pinch of comedy and a healthy dose of "mono no aware".
The acting is top-notch, the production value very high, the music superb.
The only reason I'm not giving this a "perfect 10" is that, as it's to be expected with most dramas having an episodic formula, a coupla episodes were a bit weaker, imho. Still, it got very close! 9/10
