41-year-old Danta Ichiro who has been promoted to section manager, starts to care what his subordinates think about him. He hears Miyamoto Minami, the new hire he secretly likes, her remark “dandies are my type” and sets his mind on becoming a dandy. He starts to read every male fashion magazine he can lay his hands on and watch the TV programme, Dandyism Course. First, he decides to replace the wristwatch he has used for years. While he is struggling hard with this rather questionable course in dandyism, he discovers ‘Madam M’, an intriguing shop which deals in a whole range of articles for gentlemen. The mysterious female shop owner Miyuki kindly teaches him about the history of wristwatches, her extensive knowledge and the latest popular merchandise. Danta instinctively fantasises himself on a date with Minami, and then proceeds to buy a watch of the finest quality. However, he does not know that Minami has a secret … …
