Description: A romantic home comedy about 30-year-olds with an immature view on marriage that focuses on themes related to married couples and families in general. The protagonists of 'Saikou no Rikon' are two couples - Mitsuo (Eita) and Yuka (Ono) as well as Ryo (Ayano) and Akari (Maki). Mitsuo and Yuka have been married for two years, but their ways of thinking and living are completely different and they keep on quarreling with each other most of the time. Kosei is already regretting his marriage every day, yet his grandmother finally wants to see a great-grandchild. One day, he happens to meet Akari, his old girlfriend from his student days, which brings back pleasant memories. Right after he finds out Akari is already married, Yuka eventually asks him for a divorce but Mitsuo still ends up living with Yuka under the same roof due to some reason...
How could you NOT love this drama?
This drama is incredibly funny. It’s not funny in the way that you’d expect from most jdramas..that have some cheesy humor/moments of overacting. Instead it has a really witty and quirky sense of humor. There are many moments when I just laugh out loud at the characters. And of course there are more serious moments that will really get to you.
The characters are all very real and well written. Eita is amazing as the main character Hamasaki, who is flawed yet dorkily funny at the same time. I also enjoy Ayano Go as the other male lead even though he doesn’t play a huge role in the first few episodes. Ono Machiko & Maki Yoko as the two female leads are also amazing.
Overall, a great gem of this winter 2013 jdrama season. For people who want a bit more of a mature humorous drama about four adults who are working out the relationships in their lives.
