1 - Uniforms and Pot Rice 02016-07-05Kouhei is a single dad living with his daughter, Tsumugi.

2 - Pork Soup and Restaurant Lights 02016-07-12Kouhei is worried about meeting with Kotori, his student. Is it okay for him to be meeting with an individual student outside of class?

6 - A Gyoza Party with Friends 02016-08-09Tsumugi wants to throw a party: a gyoza party! And a party means that she can invite all her friends, everyone she knows at daycare, and Kotori, and Shinobu, and even Yagi!
