Nakae Kazuhito, Katsumi Nojiri, and Kenji Katagiri are directing the series. Naoko Adachi is writing the scripts.
The series will premiere in April in TV Tokyo's "Drama 24" Friday night programming block.
A hard-working, middle-aged gay couple in Tokyo come to enjoy the finer moments of life through food. After long days at work, either in the law firm or the hair salon, Shiro and Kenji will always have down time together by the dinner table, where they can discuss their troubles, hash out their feelings, and enjoy delicately prepared home-cooked meals!
The series was nominated for the first Manga Taisho Awards (Cartoon Grand Prize) in 2008, and received a jury recommendation in the 13th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2009. The manga also ranked on the "Book of the Year" list from Kadokawa Media Factory's book and manga news magazine Da Vinci in 2014 and 2016.
