--Tanaka Misako stars as a woman struggling to raise her three sons - played by Tamayama Tetsuji, Hayami Mokomichi and Nakao Akiyoshi - after her husband dies. Kuninaka Ryoko will appear as Tamayama's girlfriend, Chisato.
They don't know when to stop, and live life to the full—meet the never-a-dull-moment Sakurai family, where nobody holds their feelings back. Returning to serial drama for the first time in five years, Misako Tanaka and the three hyperactive sons provide a story with a heartbeat. Sakurai Harue (Tanaka) who has brought up her sons alone after her husband died, is absolutely hopeless at running a household. Her eldest, stickler Tatsuya (Tamayama), does the job in her place while keeping younger brothers Riku (Hayami), and Junpei (Nakao) firmly in line. The sparks are constantly flying, but that's the way it goes in this home. Tatsuya, a serious-minded advertising agency worker, and his brothers, an easy-going swimming instructor and rather naïve student, are three good-lookers who, along with their useless live-wire of a mother, keep getting into all sorts of scrapes—in love and at work. This is the Sakurai household, where everything hangs loose and everyone always speaks their mind. Tanaka says she really loves this 'perfect family.' They are sure to win your hearts too!
So first off, I love the interplay of the brothers, they are really amazing. Although we know the names of the Tamayama Tetsuji, Hayami Mokomichi, and Nakao Akiyoshi now, back in 2005 when this first came out they were just settling into their styles and were doing more modeling then acting. They worked well off of each other and wove a tale of comedic, dramatic, and realistic proportions.

I highly recommend this series. The subs can be found here: https://www.d-addicts.com/forums/
Although it's only episode 1 - 4, tianj and their team were great for subbing as much as they did. The rest of the subs were hardcoded and posted on d-addicts, but sadly they have been removed. If you'd like to see the show in it's entirety, please let me know and I will email tianj and see if they will let me share their hardsubs via mega.
