Finding himself in dire straights (yet again), Godai is forced to scramble for a job after being summarily laid-off from his teaching-gig. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend, he embarks on a brilliant new career in public relations - at a strip club.
In addition to the ignominy of the job itself, Godai quickly finds himself in the role of de facto daddy when one of the hostesses absconds without her children. One little boy, one little girl, and a household of drunks - the fates are certainly testing (and flagrantly taunting) our poor Godai.
Story and art by Rumiko Takahashi.
