Umi was a beautiful single mother, she worked hard to raise her son Daichi. however, she implanted into Daichi's mind that he has to grow up into a successful being and buy his mother a big house. Daichi was raised to be a perfect obedient son who adored his mother. when Umi started her new job at an all-boys high school cafeteria, Daichi decided to enter that high school to protect his mother.
the drama had its fun moments, both in the son and mother's point of view. it was hilarious that Umi had a hidden motive to manipulate her son, while Daichi found ways around being bullied without betraying his mother. they were the same in many ways, being completely perfect for each other. the points delivered were in an understanding manner, though both having a motive, their love for each other were deep and strong, making it both funny and heartwarming.
