by Keiko Kinoshita Hanu Akaishi's father just died, leaving him and orphan at age 17. It seems his father was in a lot of debt and took out some shady loans, and just when the Yakuza-esque creditors come to collect, a mysterious lawyer named Yuugi Senoh appears and says he'll deal with the matter personally. As it turns out, Mr. Senoh was someone Haru befriended many years ago as his mother ailed in hospital, but Haru has forgot about him. When the bank takes back the mortgage on his house, Haru takes Mr. Senoh up on his offer to live at his apartment. While Mr. Senoh claims that he is only trying to offer financial support to Haru as a minor, perhaps there is a stronger bond between the two than either realized at first.
