A man is cooking a steak in an apartment kitchen. Although his skills are a bit rusty, his usage of spices and way of pouring brandy to light a fire is quite a sight. He's Shinsuke Kuwano, an architect. He starts taking bites of the steak when his cell phone rings. It's Eiji Murakami, Shinsuke's assistant at the office. He has called to remind Shinsuke of a party that he was supposed to attend.

"Mr. Kuwano, you were the one invited. Why aren't you here?" "Eiji, did you know that the ancient Romans partied by lying on the floor and feasting with their hands?" "You have to come. There's somebody that wants to build a house soon."

Later on at the party, Shinsuke finds Eiji hitting on a girl. "Did you know that five-story pagodas are actually one-story high?" This is a piece of trivia that Shinsuke had told him. Shinsuke stands out at the party with his handsome looks. When he learns that a girl at the party is interested in him, for some reason, he starts talking endlessly about architecture, eventually boring the girl. Eiji says, "Mr. Kuwano, if you don't do something about your personality, you'll never be able to get married." "I like being alone!" replies Shinsuke.

In the meantime, at a Japanese restaurant, Natsumi Hayasaka is reluctantly having dinner with an arranged date. When Natsumi feels that the topic of conversation is heading towards marriage, she finally speaks up.

At a later date, Maya Sawasaki, who works in the housing industry is giving a tour of a house Shinsuke designed. Maya is confident of landing a deal with a customer, but Shinsuke just can't keep his mouth shut, ruining the deal. Although Maya and Eiji are fed up with Shinsuke's personality, they still respect his way of designing homes, focusing on the kitchen — the place in the house where family warmth is built upon.

Really liked this show Abe was really funny. The episode with him getting a girlfriend and the fireworks one was really great! "I don't compromise" oh that quote was a different episode.

I dont know how I survived watching all 12 episodes of this. it's not particularly exciting nor mind-blowing. it's not something that will make you want to keep watching. i finished it in 12 days. yes, one episode per day. :P

but it had a charm of its own. Abe Hiroshi's awkwardness and nerdiness were just something to-die-for... he was simply hilarious. His constant visits to the hospital were also funny. You know he just needed to see a certain person *coughladydoctorcough*. this series would be good if you just want some downtime. the humour was quite embedded but you'd still get to laugh in some scenes.

I thoroughly enjoyed Abe Hiroshi's portrayal of Shinsuke. The characters were very well written and each episode was well paced and had subtle humour that kept me wanting more.

Not forgetting mention of Ken, the absolutely adorable pug that Shinsuke develops a soft spot for. They're cute together.
