Tokyo Tarareba Girls

The sharp new comedy from Akiko Higashimura, creator of Princess Jellyfish!

 "I spent all my time wondering 'What if?' Then one day I woke up and I was 33."

Rinko doesn't think she's that bad-looking, but before she knew it, she was thirtysomething and single. Now she wants to get married by the time the Tokyo Olympics rolls around in six years, but … that might be easier said than done!
