Story
Keshizaki Natsumi, Akiko and Fuyu are close sisters around the age of 40. Dreaming of becoming a cafe owner, Natsumi resigns from her company. When she goes to the site where she is to open the cafe, there is already a mysterious store called ‘Cafe Omokage’. Akiko, a music teacher at a part-time high school, has her feelings toyed by her students. Fuyu, a self-professed actress, strives at a part-time job every day while aspiring to become a movie star. But she has a dispute with her boss and ends up getting sacked … … As if to make matters worse when they are already having a hard time, the Keshizaki sisters find themselves caught in all sorts of bizarre phenomenon such as an artificial human, a vampire and a monster. Natsumi’s childhood friend, the detective Sankaido Noboru, and his junior, Kanashibetsu, get involved and bigger disaster happens. Meanwhile, a man who should have been sentenced to death attacks a jewellery store. Despite gunshots from a patrol officer who rushed to the scene, he is completely unaffected and disappears into a street … ….
