Widower Mantaro Kanemoto (Higashiyama Noriyuki) has a lot on his mind, specifically 6 kids that he has to take care of on his own following the death of his wife. Doing the best he can to raise his family alone, 37 year-old Mantaro is struck by cupid's arrow and falls in love with 20 year-old Tomo Yuki (Yuka). When his kids find out that he is going to remarry, they are against it completely; No way will they let in another woman into their house to replace their lost mom. And if that wasn't enough, it seems that the spirit of Mantaro's deceased wife, Setsu (Asano Atsuko), is also against the marriage and makes "appearances" to try and convince Mantaro otherwise. Will it end happily ever after? --NTV
