Shima Shima

Shima Shima/ シマシマ/ Striped Sheep ** (Japanese)
10 episodes
Yada Akiko as Houkigi Shio
Mildly funny romance. Got a few giggles and sympathy out of me for the "can't sleep dreammare." The shop theme seemed a wanted and delightful one, but, I can imagine it'd be difficult to maintain in it's platonic style. All in all, it seemed... melancholy.

Shio, a 30something salon worker starts a business to help women sleep by providing sleep companions.. Young men willing to to play teddybear for a night. But in all her helping others, she didn't consider herself, lonely since the day the older brother of one of her sheep ran off trailing divorce papers for her. As it turns out, two of the sheep profess feelings for her, and try to help her out, going to the extent of possibly throwing away a future career because it would mean years in a far away place.
