Shimoochiai Gin is a baby sitter who dresses like an English lady even though he is a man. A professional certified by the Royal British Association for Nannies, the eccentric Gin brings love to angst-filled parents and children. Ignoring the opposition of his younger sister Mimiko, who is the CEO of Shimoochiai Poppins Club, he pushes ahead in this line of work. One day, Mimiko receives a phone call from Oka Kumiko. Kumiko is raising a six-month old son Naoya and lives with her husband Makoto, who even has a reputation in the neighbourhood for his good looks. Makoto’s mother Yachiyo is a well-known author of books on raising children and advocates “happy parenting”. However, Kumiko is exhausted from child-rearing.
