Series Synopsis

The 75th NHK Asadora is Imo Tako Nankin. The series takes place in 1962 Osaka. This asadora is based on an essay written by an award-winning writer Tanabe Seiko about her life. Hanaoka Machiko, 37, is single and works at a hardware store in Osaka City while doing literary work. One day, she falls ill due to overwork and falls in love with Tokunaga Kenjiro, the doctor who examines her. Kenjiro and Machiko marry. But Kenjiro, who lost his first wife to illness, lives not just with his five children, but his brother, sister, and parents. In a comical and heart-warming way, the drama depicts Machiko's struggle with the new family while pursuing her career as a novelist.
