Kumazawa Naotatsu (Ohnishi Riku) is about to start his first year of high school living under one very peculiar roof, unbeknownst to him. Coming to live with his uncle (Kora Kengo)out of consideration for the daily commute, he waits to be picked up at the nearest train station, but the one who greets him isn’t his uncle ­­­­­­­— it’s an unfamiliar, grumpy-faced woman named Sakaki (Hirose Suzu) who guides him to the house he’ll be sharing with an unconventional group of strangers: his uncle, an aspiring manga artist who recently quit work as a salary man; a cross-dressing fortune-teller (Tozuka Junki); a university professor (Namase Katsuhisa); Sakaki Chisa, the cold, unsmiling 26 year old OL; and a band of musicians.

And so Naotatsu’s venture into high school begins…

Based on Tajima Retto’s manga, Mizu wa Umi ni Mukatte Nagareru.
