Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Eight-year old Sachiko (Maya Banno) is bothered at inopportune moments by her own giant-sized double, who hangs around sitting on buildings staring at her, while her older brother Hajime (Takahiro Sato) privately wrestles with raging hormones and a love-struck crush on a pretty new classmate (Anna Tsuchiya from Kamikaze Girls). The grown-ups have their difficulties too: the mother (Satomi Tezuka) struggles to come out of retirement as an animator, and the father (Tomokazu Miura) is a professional hypnotist who occasionally plies his trade on his own family with often-funny results.
