Synopsis of Otonari ni Ginga
The new sweet and wild romantic comedy from the creator of the hit manga and anime about food and family, “Amaama to Inazuma.” A desperate manga artist, called on to support his two little brothers, meets a new art assistant. But her arrival is not just a small step, it is a giant leap…

When his art assistants quit to go their own way, in addition to juggling deadlines, family, and the constant fear of losing his job, Ichiro feels on the verge of total collapse. But then a new helper appears in Ichiro’s life, and his prospects immediately start to look up! She’s an amazing artist, she always finishes on time, and besides, she’s pretty. But she, too, seems to know a lot about him, and soon she makes a confession that causes Ichiro’s mind to bend beyond the limits of the Earth…
