The story of Mr. Araiwa and his family. He is a model employee in a large enterprise, but becomes a completely different character at home. He is very keen on cooking and lets pass no occasion to cook delicious dishes for his wife, who is frequently occupied by her work as a journalist, or his young son.

Anime that I love at first sight. With each episode, my love grew even more. This anime ... was so cute! The main characters were hilarious and very cute. This series has my favorite type of humor. If you like comedy anime, I'm sure you won't be disappointed here! I watched it with my little brother and he loved it so much too! Certainly, one of the best I've seen. The line fits very well with the humor and style of the anime. Music too. The characters are nice and everyone will like them. ...
