A divorced man, with two sons. A woman who wants a divorce, with two daughters. Put them together inside a single house given an accidental circumstance, and what do you get? Noriyuki Yamahana's take on slice-of-life, with a twist. It's a barrel of laughs, sweetness and genuine fun.

Little House with an Orange Roof (more popularly known simply as 'Orange Roof') is a story about how two people got tricked by a conman into living in one house, and the development that followed.

Story: 8
It's not like the kick-off is excelling in originality. Two people have to live together because of certain circumstances, we've seen this before. What raises its value, in my opinion, is the fresh look on things. Both persons were married before and have two children. The gender distribution is very clear, which allows for pretty hilarious jokes, and at the same time for singularly heartwarming moments. The story (thus far) follows a pretty likely curve, no surprises there. All this makes it very good, but not great.
