[Drama] Ohitorisama (COMPLETE!)  

revolves around 33 year old Satomi Akiyama (Arisa Mizuki). She teaches Japanese history at a prestigious all-girls school, and is, to be frank, a woman of much experience.

She is also very proud of having graduated from the very same school herself. She is a woman gifted with both beauty and intelligence that anyone would notice. Her motto is to never give in or compromise; a perfect rule. Satomi is one who can do anything by her own strength, so she has gained the nickname of "ohitorisama" from those around her. Additionally, for quite some time she has been extremely busy with her work and therefore has no downtime for a boyfriend. It is also for this reason that she is called "ohitorisama".

One day at the all-girls school, Shinichi Kamisaka (Teppei Koike), a newly employed temporary staff member, comes along. He's merely 23 years old, and, having been born and brought up in the Heisei Era, is ten years younger than Satomi. After graduating from college, he decided to go back to working park time, and doesn't posess any sort of a degree whatsoever. Even Shinichi himself is bewildered as to why he was suddenly sent to be a teacher at this school.

All of the young female teachers and even the students begin to go crazy over him -- he's hot, cute, and definitely their type, but Satomi has no interest in a little boy who's ten years her junior. She's already a veteran at the school, her whole life hanging onto her job, while Shinichi is merely a temporary staff. Her income and status are exceptionally above his. And on top of that, she can't even imagine being with a soushokukei danshi* like Shinichi, whose peculiar habits keep on multiplying.... That's how it was supposed to be, but...?!

*soushokukei danshi; This is a recent term that has been popularized through the media in 2008 (if my memory doesn't fail me). It's a term that's used to describe a man that is very cooperative, kind, family-oriented, and gentle, yet is still an infant in terms of love and relationships.

What's behind the title?:

So, what does Ohitorisama even mean? Well, it actually started by waitresses and waiters in Japan, when asking if a customer is by themselves. Hitori means "one person", and sama is a polite suffix added to one's name to show respect. (hence kyakusama, which means customer). Waiters and Waitresses would therefore ask a customer o-hitorisama desu ka? when asking if they are by themselves for that night. Recently, however, the meaning of this has been evolving thanks to pop culture. Many people simply use ohitorisama today when referring of a woman who is by herself. Ohitorisama aren't necessarily lonely or prefer to be alone, but rather they are headstrong independent women. One of my Japanese friends told me that many women in Japan today strive to become ohitorisama.
