Kokoro Kurosawa is a musclebound judo athlete who upon graduation from university joins a major publishing company and is assigned to the editing desk of a weekly comic magazine called “Vibes”, full or very unique individuals and oddly-named senior editor, Iokibe. She becomes enthralled with the world of comic publishing with all of its meetings with serial cartoon writers, discovery of new talent, negotiating of issue volume, and working to secure second print runs. Despite her enthusiasm, Kokoro comes face to face with the hard realities of publishing as more content goes digital, and the days of the printed page appear numbered. If a comic book series doesn’t catch fire by its 3rd volume, it is doomed. Hoping to resuscitate fading “manga” artists on the cusp of oblivion, Kokoro and her colleagues strike upon a unique plan to produce a big hit, but must contend with their marquee writer being headhunted by a rival magazine, and the constant threat of discontinued publication. It’s one crisis after another for this plucky editing team.

Themes of contemporary family and marriage provide plenty of laughs and inspiration in this domestic drama about a 39-year-old bachelor who can’t marry and a 32-year-old female divorcee who refuses to. Both would prefer to be left alone, but their meddlesome parents won’t let them. Daisuke works at a stationary supply company, and is something of a softie, but with a pessimistic view toward marriage. He returns from work one day looking for rest and repose in his recently purchased condo only to find it billowing smoke. Panicking, he runs into a woman in the apartment of a neighbor, Hanako, until he realizes that his apartment isn’t on fire, but that his father has come uninvited from the countryside and is trying to smoke meat on the balcony. What’s more, he’s brought his stepson with him and plans to stick around. Soon, Daisuke’s comfortable bachelor pad is populated by three men.
