In the drama, Haruka Ayase played a quirky interior design company employee named Hotaru Amemiya who had no interest in relationships. She instead spent most of her free time laying around her messy rented house, earning herself the title “himono-onna” (dried-up woman). During the course of the series, she falls in love with her boss, Seiichi Takano (Naohito Fujiki) and by the end of the second season in 2010, they were finally preparing to get married.
