TV Asahi

One day, two new housekeepers from a housekeeping agency arrive at a luxurious house in a residential neighbourhood. They are Hanada Emiri and an obviously sturdy, big woman Mitazono Kaoru. Mitazono actually has a secret. “She” is a male. Mitazono handles housework such as cleaning, laundry, cooking and babysitting perfectly in an industry dominated by females. However, it is not just the dirt in the house that Mitazono cleans. He completely cleans off “deep-rooted dirt” in the households that he is assigned to each time. These are the households that society calls the “successful” where the people are proud, condescending and insufferable. Mitazono learns the family secrets and slowly lays traps to expose all of the secrets and reveal the family for who they really are. Then he gives the last push that breaks up relationships. However, this becomes the catalyst for the family to start again and solve the problems they have. The governor of Tokyo, Ozuzame Yoichiro, lives with his wife Kiyomi, son Naotaro and daughter Miho in this house. They are all very proud and look down on Mitazono and Emiri. However, just when Mitazono and Emiri are about to start doing the housework, Ozuzame’s chauffeur accidentally spills coffee on Ozuzame shirt. Ozuzame is beside himself with rage because he must wear this shirt today. Mitazono removes the coffee stain with a first-aid kit and dishwashing liquid in a matter of seconds. As a result, this raises the governor’s opinion on him. In fact, a threatening letter containing the words “Call off the Tokyo governor election” was delivered to Ozuzame right before this. Moreover, this does not appear to the first time it has happened. Knowing this, Mitazono rummages through the garbage bags placed at the garbage collection area and starts to probe into the family’s true state of affairs. Then one day, Mitazono is asked by Kiyomi to deliver something to Ozuzame and secretly peeps at its contents which appears to be secret accounts of over 3 billion yen in illegal donations. He also learns Kiyomi’s shocking secret and eventually the darkness of the family, and sets a trap … …
