My Great Boss

木下部長とボク

  • Human
  • Scripted Format

©ytv

Kinoshita, the boss at an ad agency, is a guy that lives in the moment and for today. He’s always late for work and then leaves early. He’s completely unpredictable.

Kinoshita and his bunch of useless employees ‘work’ at the Marumaru Tsushinsha advertising agency. Everything is done at a leisurely pace and Kinoshita takes responsibility for nothing. This warm-hearted sit-com is from the perspective of Bokumoto, a new employee at the agency. As you’ll see, the “laws of happiness” often override common sense.
