This is a renzoku for the middle-aged single men and women out there in the world. Kyosuke is divorced and somewhat of a hopeless case. Although considered a loser, he's still a good person. Shoko is in her 30s. Separated with no kids, she is considered by some to be a bit of a loser too which is a stab in the heart for any woman. Men can get away with being useless and still attract women. On the other hand, women who have nothing going for them aren't that appealing. This is a somewhat unusual story about men like Kyosuke and the women that are attracted to him, as well as single women like Shoko and their goal of getting that reliable mate. --groink
