What They Say:
Kaoru is an OL you can find anywhere, serious and works diligently, but her husband is a super otaku and more-or-less a NEET. She is caught up in one of her husband’s whims one day or the subject of his concerns another, but the two are so close that it’s embarrassing to even watch them!

Some of the simple gags about living together is the fun of this series, such as the way Kaoru isn’t comfortable at times with Hajime wearing underwear around the house. While the pair are doing some cleaning, things take a change when his parents want them to come visit for the new year and she’s excited to go while he’s not interested in seeing her, since she’s so intense about his not really working. Kaoru, on the other hand, gets plenty of positive attention as a proper young woman. Kyouko is great in how she hilariously bullies Hajime about his work, which even Mayotama pops in to have a little fun with. There’s plenty of simple comedy here, and even Hajime’s dad has a couple of great moments with how he interacts with his son.
There’s some fun family moments that comes into play here that you can see as being the real draw for Kaoru and why she wanted to come, and Hajime handles all the abuse well. But at the same time, you have to cringe at the way they all get on him about all kinds of things, though they’re doing it because they care and are concerned. Mostly about how it all looks and their own beliefs about a person’s place in the world. But as a simple comedy with some heartwarming moments, the show hits the right notes and you can laugh about it – while also starting a dialogue about it too.
