BS Sky Perfect

TV producer Kurino Ryosuke, who was driven out of the house by his wife for having repeated affairs, has turned up unexpectedly at the apartment of Hamasaki Yukito, his classmate during high school days who is now a director. Tatsumi Noriko, an office lady with excessively high self-esteem, lives in the apartment next to them and Yukito secretly harbours feelings for her. However, she falls in love at first sight with Ryosuke while he is attracted to Noriko’s well-endowed junior Akaba Airi who ends up sharing the apartment with her. Ryosuke continues to live in Yukito’s apartment with the appearance of Airi and gets the idea to help her to move in order to win her favour. While helping Airi, he steps on her treasured sunglasses by accident. He calls Yukito over to lay the blame on him. Yukito arrives but gets the wrong idea and calls Noriko his girlfriend. Airi’s photos of her three boyfriends is soon produced – something that she surprisingly has in common with Noriko. This is the beginning of a quadrangular relationship of love and shares of four odd neighbours.

Tanaka Kei as Kurino Ryosuke
A frivolous TV producer who likes big breasts. A serial adulterer, his affair was discovered. Kicked out of the house by his wife, he turns up unexpectedly at the apartment of his friend, Hamasaki Yukito. He is the typical liberal arts type.

Kinami Haruka as Tatsumi Noriko
She works for the public relations department of a major car manufacturer. She is self-conscious and her behaviour such as on social networking sites is conspicuous. However, when she gets drunk, she transforms into just the opposite – a unaffected and cute. She ended up buying this apartment when she turned 30. The loan is heavy and she had some help from the man she was living with, but she has been in difficulty recently after he left. She immediately takes a fancy to Kurino Ryosuke, but he is embarrassed.

Nakamura Shizuka as Akaba Airi
Tatsumi Noriko’s high school junior. She aspires to be a star, but now works part-time. She is dating around three men at the same time, but she is unexpectedly shrewd about the future. Anxious that she will not marry money, she bizarrely latches on to Hamasaki Yukito’s stories about shares.

Namioka Kazuki as Hamasaki Yukito
Kurino Ryosuke’s high school classmate and table tennis buddy. He is smart but has the character of a geek. Although he likes to talk, he gets nervous around women and gets tongue-tied. He is now doing day trading at home and secretly likes Tatsumi Noriko who lives next door.
