the story followed Shinobu, a Japanese girl who did a homestay in Britain. she became great friends with Alice, the daughter of her host family. after returning to Japan, she missed her time oversea. one day, and airmail arrived from Alice, telling Shinobu that she will be coming to Japan.
the series that started out simple turned out to be unexpectedly heartwarming and enjoyable to watch. while the first episode showed a rare side of Japanese speaking English, it was somewhat painful to witness. later into the series, things became much more entertaining as the humors started to surface. there were no actual storyline for the series, it was a slice of life series. in some ways, the series remindede me of A Channel (2011) and Yuru Yuri (2011), where a group of friends went through their everyday lives filled with humorous situations.
