Storyline

After graduating from college, Yuuji lands the job of his dreams at the company that manufactures his favorite running shoes. The complete sincerity and selflessness that Yuuji shows everyone he meets causes many to dismiss him as naive or simply stupid. But when his good deeds start paying off, his co-workers begin to come around to the idea that nice guys don't have to finish last. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

cute miniseries. The Japanese Forrest Gump
18 September 2003 | by (Omaha Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Though my Japanese is very limited, this became my favorite show and I was sad when the series was over. What made this show was Yuuji's country values clashing with the sophisticated Tokyo people. One of my favorite scenes was when Yuuji's hometown girlfriend comes to Tokyo bringing a bag of homegrown vegetables. People are rushing around her in a blur while she strolls along, bemused by the hectic pace. By the time she meets Yuuji she's exhausted from the experience. Never understood what the three women in Yuuji's office were gossiping about, just that they all adored him and I got a laugh out of them all talking in synch.
