Original, funny, tender and sweet! Best comedy ever.
21 March 2010 | by ketch11-22See all my reviews

This is one of the most original and funny comedies I've ever seen. This is a rare comedy that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Mineta Chisato is a young woman who had lost her mother to an illness. She's had to disguise herself, go homeless and on the run, because her father put her down as a cosigner on his gambling debt. He owes one million yen and has abandoned her.

One day, the debt collectors track her down at an internet cafe, where she showers. She's finally cornered, when a helicopter flies toward the building and lands on the roof. A man, wearing a red cape, comes to her rescue. He makes her a proposition. If she marries him for one month, he will immediately pay off the debt and finally be free of the collectors. With little to lose and so much to gain, she agrees. She signs a contract.

The day before her contract would be up, he dies. That is when she discovers that there is a clause in the contract that was hidden. She must become the mother of six adopted sons, who live in a castle. She must succeed in being accepted as their mother. All six sons are estranged from each other. This is when the story truly begins.

This show is so much fun, with several amusing characters, such as Chisato's internet-cafe friends and recruited bodyguards, as well as the bizarre housekeeper. There are many secrets to be revealed and many secret rooms in the castle.

I highly recommend this show. It could be titled: "How to make a family."
