Musume no Tomodachi Synopsis
Kosuke has lived by interpreting his "ideal self" as a father at home and as a manager at work. However, his life takes a 180 degree turn when he meets his daughter's friend. In front of her, Kosuke was able to show his true personality and his exhausted heart finally knew peace. However, he knows that these are feelings that should never be sustained, much less revealed. Thus begins the story of an older man who meets a younger girl, who must now hide his love from modern society. What then will fate hold for Kosuke, already an older man with a fulfilled life? Will he fall to the fruit of temptation?
