100 Yen Love
Best Of Nippon Connection ²
32-year-old slacker Ichiko (Sakura ANDO) lives with her parents until a fight with her disapproving sister escalates: she moves out, accepts a job at a local 100-yen-shop and meets boxer Yuji, whom she has watched at practice numerous times. After her life takes more unexpected – and unwanted – turns, she takes up boxing herself and attempts to change her ways.
