Synopsis

When Nao Yoshikawa's (Haruka Fukuhara) parents move to the country, they let her stay in Tokyo to finish high school. She finds her own apartment and is excited about living alone, but Hisashi Uehara (Shunya Shiraishi), her heartthrob classmate, shows up with a key of his own and says he's the real tenant. They realize they're going to have to share the apartment.

Uehara, who lost his parents when he was young, is a quiet boy who ignores the attention he gets from girls at school. Although he comes up with a number of rules for Nao, such as they should pretend to be total strangers at school so no one realizes they're living together, the rules prove impossible to follow. Despite Uehara's initial indifference, they begin to develop a close relationship.

Based on the manga of the same name by Yue Takasuka.

  • 5 stars "My favorite Netflix show of all time. It's cute and funny, but also dramatic and the actors are amazing, they show great depth. The story is more complex than you realize at first, which makes it a series you can (and will want to) watch more than once. The second season wasn't quite as good as the first one, but still, I hope they make more episodes."
  • 5 stars "Have watched this several times now, it's so funny. The main characters remind me of when I met my husband. I was 18yrs at the time, husband slightly older, so they remind me so much of how we were at the time. Glad they got together in the end so looking forward to the next series to see how the relationship develops when it starts on Netflix here in the UK on 28 November. Hope it's as good as the first series."
  • 5 stars "Cutest show ever. Interesting look at Japanese culture (may not be totally accurate, as it is a sitcom), but first and foremost a romantic comedy with very cute leads."
