“You look like the back side of a bug when you smile. Like the back side of a drone beetle.” As a young boy, a girl he adored told him that. And ever since that day, he had a hard time smiling. The original story is based on the real-life experience of author, Kirio Tsume. The main character, Hiroshi Ono, was abandoned by his mother when he was still young. Hiroshi meets all kinds of women with whom he clashes with at times, and with whom, he runs from at other times. And through these experiences, Hiroshi gradually gets his smile back. It’s a melancholic story that’s also full of humor.
The first woman he fell in love with was a bicycle thief. He lost his virginity to a woman in a wheelchair. And the woman he loved the most, Asuka, makes a living selling her saliva to perverts.
Focusing on the six years Hiroshi spent with the love of his life, Asuka, it depicts the good-for-nothing life of this hopeless man who lived his life at the mercy of wild and crazy women.
