Synopsis
Saori, a would-be manga artist supporting herself as an illustrator, is in love with Tony Laszlo, who came to Japan after he fell in love at first sight with its ‘kanji’ written characters. He is an American. Unable to speak a word of English, Saori is nonetheless taken with Tony, and they begin to go out. They start to sense ‘marriage’ and move in together. They arrange to rent her sister’s wedding hall, and invite her parents. Saori’s mother was expected to present an obstacle, but Tony wins her over completely. Her father, however, pointing to Saori’s easy-come easy-go attitude to life, quietly announces his opposition to the marriage. Because he is a foreigner, the two of them must try harder to come together than they would if both were an ordinary Japanese couple. But as the desire weakens, he announces he is going back to America.


만화가를 꿈꾸는 일러스트레이터 사오리.「 한자」를 보고 한눈에 매료되어 일본에 온 미국인 토니 라즈 로. 영어를 못하는 사오리지만 토니의 인간성에 매료되어 곧 두사람은 연인관계가 된다. 결혼을 의식하 면서 동거를 시작한 사오리와 토니. 여동생의 결혼식에서 사오리는 부모님에게 토니를 소개한다. 반대 할 줄 알았던 사오리의 어머니는 토니의 인간성을 보고 흥쾌히 승낙한다. 한편, 조용한 성격의 아버지는 대충 가볍게 인생을 결정한다며 사오리를 꾸중하면서 토니와의 결혼을 반대한다.상대가 외국인이니까, 앞으로도 함께 있고 싶으니까, 일본인커플 이상으로 노력해온 사오리와 토니. 하지만, 두사람의 감정은 차츰 식어가고, 사오리와 함께 미국행을 예정했던 토니는 돌연 혼자서 귀국하겠다며 사오리에게 말한다.


一心想成為漫畫家但現實生活裡還只是一位「插圖畫家」、過著單身生活的 Saori,其實有一位意中郎。他是鑽研漢字文學, 而著迷日本文化隻身來到日本的東尼.拉茲洛。他是一位美國人。英文一竅不通的Saori 被東尼的性格深深吸引,不久之後兩人便開始約會交往。漸漸考慮「結婚」而開始同居生活的兩人,在參加大姐的結婚典禮之際Saori 正式的把東尼介紹給了父母親。本以為會是難關重重的母親大人,沒想到鍾意東尼的誠懇憨厚,早把他當作家人看待。反倒是一向沒意見的父親,對於Saori 半途而廢沒有主見的生活方式,大大的數落一番而且宣告徹底反對兩個人的結婚。正因為對方是外國人,也因為今後想要長長遠遠的走下去,兩個人決心要比其他同國籍的伴侶更加用心經營這段感情。但是不自覺的, 彼此漸漸忘了當初的承諾;就在約定一起前往美國的岀發前,東尼竟然向Saori 提出想自己一個人回國的要求。
