Kento played in the dream by Yasuda Ken (Hotaru no Hikari
, Haken no Hinkaku
) is winning the Nobel Prize and thanking his mother, when his mother Hanafusi Aoi played by Sakai Maki (Double Kitchen, Big Wing) is awakened by the first grader she was dreaming about. The scene shifts to Ayukawa Noriko played by Ito Misaki (Densha Otoko
, Kiken na Aneki
) her boyfriend Miho played by Tanihara Shosuke (Mop Girl
, Deru Toko Demasho!
) is explaining to her why he's beaking off their engagement. He's recently been in an accident and when he thought he was about to die, all the things that were important to him flashed through his mind. But Noriko wasn't remembered at all, also he finds her uninteresting and boring, but beautiful. He claims to prefer Cabbage dolls (aka Cabbage Patch dolls) over Barbie dolls. The scene shifts and Noriko is at a meeting at the grammar school where she's a first grade teacher, today is the start of a new term and she'll be getting a new transfer student. There are some rumours about the boy that he had problems at his previous school and his father has disappeared.
Thomas Edison was a boyhood idol of mine, when I was in grammar school I read his biography and was sure that's what I wanted to be when I grew up. Of course later I saw a John Wayne movie and decided that I'd be a cowboy instead. Ito Misaki
and Tanihara Shosuke back together and that's a good thing for any comedy drama. This first episode finds Noriko completely distracted by her boyfriend dumping her, and the kids are uncontrollable. The scenes with Kento are adorable when he gets her confused as she tries to prove that 1+1=2 and later when Miho declares Kento as interesting. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys romantic comedies like Gokusen
or Yama Onna Kabe Onna
