Story
Beautiful, highly educated career woman Iwaya Sumire is a journalist who works for a large newspaper. However, she is a sensitive person and awkward in romances. Sumire gets dumped by her boyfriend Yoshida Koichi whom she has considered marrying, then gets demoted at work and hits rock bottom. One night, she returns to home drunk and finds a handsome young man lying in a cardboard box outside her apartment. She mistakes him for the pet dog, Momo, that she once had and flings her arms around him. The next day, Sumire jokingly suggests that she takes him as her pet and gives him the same name as Momo. This is how they begin living together and Sumire gradually starts to recover emotionally through her time with him. Then she meets her first love Hasumi Shigehito at the newspaper again … …
