Heartwarming tale of a family ... NOT! Poor teenage daughter ... carefree mother ... heartless grandmother. However this seems to be mainstay of anime and dramas based on out of the way INN in Japan. I'm not surprised at the overbearing grandmother who runs the inn. It's practically cliche'.
I've found this review to be quite inspirational. I too had been through a drastic event in my life when my father passed away, so I know what the main character is going through in the series.
This looks like the setup for a realistic version of the Cinderella story. It seems OK for what it is, and the characters are interesting, but the story is not something that would hold my attention for too long.
like it. a pretty decent dramedy.
