This drama series, starring Mone Kamishiraishi, is the adaptation of a comic book about an introverted girl who adores good food. The story is set in an old residential area in downtown Tokyo.

Ayako Yamada, or Bun, is an 18 year-old who just entered university and started living by herself. Actually, she is living together with a rabbit-like talking stuffed animal called Hokusai.

Bun tends to shy away from people and likes to live in her own imagination. She is most interested in cooking, and no matter how short of money and time she is, she always makes the effort to cook and eat well. Her cuisine maintains a good balance of vegetables, proteins, carbohydrates, and is often made as a single dish for convenience.

Bun comes up with unique self-made recipes and cooks good meals with Hokusai. Problems arise in her life, but she is happy as long as she has good food and Hokusai by her side.
