いいひと。 /. Ii Hito / Good Man

Good Man

1997 JDorama about a guileless man (Kusanagi Tsuyoshi as Yuuji) who dreams of working for the sneaker company he is so fond of, and when that dream eventually comes true, he turns Tokyo upside down as well as shaking things up inside the mega conglomeration where he is relegated to the basement with the rest of the soon-to-be-fired employees the company deems useless.

Yuuji was hilarious without trying, his girlfriend was adorable without much effort on her part, and the two farm hicks who worked at the coffee shop no one ever visited were in perfect sync with them.

His goal in life is to make people happy, and without their knowing it, he does just that; even to the owner of the conglomerate ... eventually.

Ganbatte was the theme, and as far-fetched as the storyline was, I still enjoyed this, and I think you will, too.
