Three brothers, orphaned young by their father's death, are left alone to grow up with a rather eccentric mother. On their father's deathbed he swore them to fend for themselves and help each other through the struggles of life, not without the occasional comic touch.

I feel bad writing this, because this was a drama I wanted to like, and I initially did.

I really liked the dynamic of the family, most of the characters were pretty likable and the first episodes were alright. But it was just alright. The novelty of a family that yells and fights all the time was amusing at first, but as time worn on I found their conflicts annoying. The story's not too compelling, and nothing that hasn't been rehashed dozens of times before (and since).

This is a show I would suppose many people would deem as a "light watch", but it was so light that it couldn't hold my attention. And then, some of the plot points and conflicts that I guess should've kept me interested just seemed unconvincing or tired. There were some cute moments here and some laughs there, but after the halfway point I just found myself terribly bored with it.

So, I ended up finishing the show because I like Tamayama and kinda like Kuninaka and have been trying to sort out my feelings about some of the other actors. Even for those purposes, I feel like I wasted my time because they just weren't given a lot to work with. The script was the weakest aspect of the show. In the end, I don't think it was that bad on its own... but there's just so much out there that's better.

Scanning the screenwriter's (Komatsu) page, I see that she's done at least two other dramas that are pretty popular but struck me as boring and unconvincing -- "Summer Snow" and "Moto Kare". I think this is a writer I'll try to avoid from now on.

Somewhat cute, but quite repetitive and clichéd :/ well, I'm not finished yet.

It's a simple story but really, really enjoyable! Also the cast was awesome!

A wonderful drama that'll make you smile all the way to the last episode. It shows the great bond the Sakurai family has & how they cope with daily problems. The cast did a great job, especially Tamayama san ^^

Very funny drama to watch. If you want to watch something light and draw a smile on your face you can watch this one.
It shows the bond of a family too :)
