AKA Tonari no sanshimai: Yari kurabe
Three sisters’ lives converge at pivotal moments as they face various demons, bad decisions and past experiences.
The youngest, Miyo, is a shut-in and socialises with no one. The middle sister, Mizuki, works in a bar and gives all of her earnings to her boyfriend; who is actually married. Then there’s the oldest sister, Hoshimi…. Hoshimi is an artist who brings home different men every night for sex. Her behaviour is so extreme that her sisters try to find a reason for it and discover that she was abused as a teenager by their uncle.
