We Married as a Job: (Netflix title in post)  Season 1, Ep 0

aka The Full-Time Wife Escapist, which is how Netflix lists it. I'm not sure why. In any case, this Japanese rom-com follows 25-year-old unemployed clinical psychologist Miruki (Yui Aragaki) and 35-year-old computer programmer Tzusaki (Gen Hoshino) as they - for plot reasons that I've decided to accept - decide to get fake-married so that Tzusaki can hire her to be his live-in housekeeper (and just his housekeeper). I was prepared to be skeeved out by this arrangement, but the series takes great pains to show Tzusaki's genuinely honorable intentions and Miruki's agency in entering into and maintaining this deal. Plus, I was totally charmed by their discovery of the joys of shared domesticity and their mutual adorkable-ness. [more inside]
