“Kimi wa Pet (You are My Pet),” premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 7:35 p.m.

Sumire works as a journalist at a major newspaper. She is a beautiful woman with both wit and charm, and the brains to graduate from both Tokyo University and Harvard. But she is terrible at relationships. She was dumped by her boyfriend who she thought she would marry, and she also gets demoted at work, bringing her to her lowest point in life.

One day, she finds a beautiful young homeless boy in front of her home and takes him in. She sees similarities in the boy and her beloved dog Momo that she used to own, and suggests that he live with her as a pet. Her time spent with him gradually becomes more and more relaxing. Fully subtitled in English.
