25-year-old Moriyama Mikuri has an advanced degree, but has had no luck finding a permanent position. She's been living with her parents and doing temp work, and her latest job is doing housework for a single salaryman, Tsuzaki. Mikuri longs to start a career in her field, and her Aunt Yuri, who has had success in her professional life and who regrets never marrying, also wants Mikuri to find love.

When Mikuri learns that her parents are planning to move to the country, she realizes her time is running out. She still has had no luck starting her career, so it seems she will have no option but to move to the country with her parents. She finds another option in moving in with Tsuzaki, who doesn't want to lose his housekeeper. To deal with the scandal of their living together, they get married—though just on paper. Now Mikuri starts her unusual new life, as a woman looking to start her career and as a new 'wife'!

I have just finished Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu. It’s great. It needs more than one read may be I will do that later. It criticizes the society indifferent many ways and aspects for example why id it a given that a house the woman’s responsibility?

There is a running joke among my friends, you put a "warning: adult content" image in a post and then talk about your work, children, spouse, health or about the lack of any of those things.
