Binbō Shimai Monogatari
The Yamada sisters, Kyo (15) and Asu (9), live together in a run-down apartment in Tokyo. Their father ran off long ago, leaving a heap of unpaid debts, and their only means of support is the meager pay that Kyo gets for delivering papers and doing odd jobs. Even so, the two sisters are happy - for they have each other.
Kyo and Asu have lived alone ever since their mother died and their father disappeared after running up a huge gambling debt. Every day they struggle to make ends meet whilst bringing a little happiness into their lives.
Asu and Kyo are two orphaned sisters; their mother passed away some time ago, while their father abandoned them due to gambling issues. Asu and Kyo now live in a rundown apartment complex. Asu, the younger sister, is responsible for all of the housework while Kyo is in charge of living expenses; and together, the two sisters work hard to live a comfortable and enjoyable life. Looking to one another for support, Asu and Kyo experience the hardships of daily living, but are still able to welcome each day with a smile.
