Story
The Osawagi family lives in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture which is very near Tokyo. The man of the house, Daitetsu, is a tobacco-loving taxi driver. He lives with his wife Junko, their four children – only daughter Sakura who seems the most normal in the family; eldest son Haruo who is into anime and inventions, second son Kotetsu who is Urayasu’s silliest elementary school student; and cute third son Yuta, a little genius who takes after his mother – and grandfather Kintetsu. A preposterous and extreme bunch that always “lives to the fullest” every day with their neighbours, any trivial matter such as eating out or a child developing a fever can become a riot beyond imagination once they get involved. One day, Daitetsu is given a sentence to stop smoking at a family hearing by Junko. The whole family including Sakura who wants money for dates with her boyfriend Hanamaruki, gang up to make Daitetsu quit. However, this turns into a confinement, chase and huge commotion. Will they be successful in their strategy to get him to give up smoking?
