CAST Kaoru Kobayashi
It’s midnight and the lights of the eatery called the “Midnight Diner” are just flickering on.
As most of the city sleeps, a few unique characters seek out this eatery for good food and good conversation. The menu only lists a pork, rice and soup set but on request, the chef will make almost anything. Despite his stern appearance, the eccentric chef is a friendly listener who draws out interesting stories from the variety of patrons who show up at his shop. At this late hour, his customers include characters from all walks of life including office workers, washed-up singers, failed actors, strippers and gangsters.
