Hanayome to Papa Episode 1 First Look

Hanayome to Papa is a funny story about a way too over protective father Uzaki Kentaro played by Tokito Saburo (Yasashii Jikan, Pride) and his twenty year old daughter Aiko played by Ishihara Satomi (Tsubasa no Oreta Tenshitachi Season 2 Episode 1, Ns' Aoi ). She still has a 7pm curfew and no cell phone, no staying out overnight, no men, these family precepts hang in the kitchen. The episode begins as Aiko gets ready for her first day of employment as an office lady in the fashion industry, her dream job. She arrives at work at the same time as another new hire Miura Seiji played by Taguchi Junnosuke (KAT-TUN, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi) only to find that her father has beaten her there and is passing out greeting gifts to her new co-workers. This first episode was very funny but I’m not sure that they can keep it up unless the story expands beyond that of a father to far over the edge. I’ll definitely keep watching this to see how the story progresses. Miho Shiraishi (Densha Otoko, Nodame Cantabile) and Wakui Emi (Love Song, Virgin Road) also star.

Download the raw video bit torrent file here, the first set of soft subs are available here, but be aware that as the fan subber notes this is a quick and dirty release just so people can start watching the show. There are some scenes not translated and maybe some mistakes but none that I noticed. Another sub group will be doing soft subs and hard sub releases for this show. I'll post a link to those subs when they are released. But if you’re like me and can’t wait to see the new stuff I recommend you check this show out.

Here’s some screen shots from early in the first episode.

The Family Precepts
Curfew is 7pm
Men Women Friendship is prohibited.
Spending night outside the house impossible
Don't forget to greet.
