From 10.00 p.m., Saturdays, 9 February 2019


Ito Kaya is a full-time housewife and has been happily married to her husband Tadashi for 15 years. However, they have not had sex for a long time. One morning, Kaya asks if he has a lover, and learns that he knows she has a lover too. This conversation leads to no definite conclusion besides a reluctant acknowledgement of each other’s lovers. In fact, Kaya has been having an affair with manga artist Hoshino Seiichiro. Meanwhile, she visits a chiropractic clinic. During a session with the chiropractor Osaka Akane, Kaya cries in spite of herself after Akane tells her that she should say it hurts, if it hurts. Their interactions grow after that. However, Akane is Tadashi’s lover. Through an unexpected turn of events, all four of them end up becoming acquainted. What will happen to this four-sided relationship between the troubled couple and their lovers?
