67 min x 11 eps｜11 episodes
Fulfilling a long-cherished dream, school teacher Hijiri Matsunaga is hired at a far-flung countryside middle school where she encounters, Akira Kuroiwa, a 9th grader with mysterious powers. Though 10 years younger than his teacher, Akira falls instantly in love with her and single-mindedly pursues her affections. But Hijiri has a devoted finance, Shotaro, with whom she keeps up a long-distance relationship. Aware that she should not reciprocate her student’s feelings for her, Hijiri eventually finds her heart swayed by Akira’s unremitting love and becomes attracted to him. Deeply conflicted between the affections of a pubescent youth and an elite company man, Hijiri’s “forbidden” love triangle engulfs those around her in this “forbidden yet pure” love story between student and pupil.

The long-awaited dramatization of Kiyoshi Shigematsu’s million bestseller and winner of the Naoki Literature prize, Second Chance Chauffeur begins with a man taking a ride in a car as he seeks to embark on a life do-over. But the drive sends him toggling supernaturally between past and future where he encounters his father. Both of the same age, the two forge an odd relationship that is neither father-son nor two friends. Kazuo (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is a staid and serious man who lost his family for failing to notice a dark illness that afflicted his wife. His father (Teruyuki Kagawa), on the other hand, was a freewheeling, passionate entrepreneur who built many successful businesses in the course of an illustrious career. Together, the two embark on a spiritual journey that prompts Kazuo to mature as a father and reach a place that will provide encouragement to all.
