There is also a mysterious old man Yamada Ichiro (Tanaka Min) who has been living in the guard house on the lush green grounds of the house for many years. Sachi runs embroidery classes. When she is busy, she will even skip bathing and changing clothes, and end up looking scruffy. She does not know her father Yukio who left home when she was born. That is a forbidden subject in the family. However, when Yukino butts in on it, the truth between Sachi’s parents comes to light and this changes their peaceful daily life. Sachi does not engage much with the world and has no boyfriend. As she struggles with work and her loneliness, love unexpectedly happens. Yukino continues to have troubles with a water leak and with men. Meanwhile, Taemi is being stalked by her ex-boyfriend Honjo Soichi (Nakamura Aoi). There is no shortage of funny and strange episodes in the Makita household, and the spate of incidents that occur brings them together.
