Summary The Harunos are a rather unconvential, but happy and loving family. Eight-year-old Sachiko is bothered by her own giant-sized double, who hangs around sitting on buildings staring at her. Her older brother, Hajime, privately wrestles with raging hormones and a love-struck crush on a pretty new classmate. Mom struggles to come out of retirement as an animator and Dad is a professional hypnotist who occasionally plies his trade on his own family. Throw in 2 uncles and an eccentric grandfather and there is a unique blend of a family tackling the universal themes of time, family and life.
