While he continues to work on various assignments, Ranko returns to Japan where she meets her new husband's children from a previous marriage. Long neglected by their absent father, the teens are fiercely independent and don't welcome Ranko's friendly entreaties. The oldest, nineteen-year old Makoto (Oda Yuji), is a former academic whiz who choked twice on the entrance exam to Tokyo University. He spends much of the series brooding about his room or secretly masquerading as a Todai undergrad. The middle child (Matoba Koji) constantly gets into fights at school and is currently suspended. The youngest of the clan, a sixteen year old girl (Ishida Hikari) is a compulsive liar. The tv drama then proceeds to capture how the four evolve into an odd family of sorts, sans papa.
