Ten-year-old Takuya has a new job: to look after his baby brother Minoru…looks like it's time to put on the kid gloves!
Young Takuya has it tough. Since his mother passed away, he's had to take care of his baby brother Minoru while their father works the long hours of a Japanese "salaryman."
Everyone's an art critic. First Takuya's brainy friend Hitoshi reveals his secret passion for drawing stories about space heroes, only to get into a feud with Fujii over the artistic direction of the project. Then Minoru takes his favorite picture book a little too seriously and becomes convinced that a wolf is breaking into his house. And Takuya helps his friend Hirose's manga-artist dad get over a serious case of creative block--and patch things up with Hirose in the process.
