A thirty-two year old office worker Noda Naoko has a nickname of 'Anego' by her fellow younger work colleagues for giving them advice like an older sister. This romantic drama tells of the problems she faces and her worries of the future.
I watched this drama, because it had a recommendation linked from Kimi wa Petto. It is somewhat similar, but there are enough differences to enjoy it as something different.
First I didn't like it. Naoko was so focused on what she had planned for the future and what the society expects of her, that I wanted to slap her and all people who made her into this (especially her mother). But then she started to shake, like falling for a married man or for a guy a lot younger than her. She had to question her ideals she clinged onto before. And I liked how the drama pointed out, that the things we believe to get happiness from are not the things, that will make us truly happy. Like a marriage arranged through an omiai.
Sometimes I wished Naoko to be more thoughtful, though. Her life at 34 was so shaken up, she didn't know what she wanted or with whom she wanted to be with, ending up playing with poor Kurosawa's heart.
But all in all, I think everyone who was in situations like Naoko before will like this drama.
The protagonist is independent woman around thirty who is engulfing herself in her work so much that she is losing her love life. She is worried about her future and can't picture herself married, although she is desperately trying to find a serious relationship. Her love affairs are ruined by her workaholic and reliable spirit, bearer of names by her colleagues, who respect her work and use her advice, but talk behind her back about her unfortunate affairs. A younger, new co worker, being curious about her, starts to sympathize with her feelings. There are also some other men around her.
