TV presenter and actress Minami Tanaka plays Mami Honda, a 36-year-old single writer who rose to fame overnight thanks to a popular essay she wrote ten years ago. Honda is now looking for “a form of happiness for itself”.

Media viewing released the manga in 2018, and it describes the story:
Mami is 36 and single, and the whole world seems to tell her that she must be unhappy. But is it?

A collection of interconnected stories that explores the dangers and joys of single life through the eyes of three single women.
