Asaka is a wedding planner who’s disillusioned with his job---it seems like none of the couples he works for ever stay together. When he bumps into Sasagawa, a former client, Asaka feels like he’s found the one happily married man in all of Tokyo. The two men quickly become friends and drinking buddies, and as they spend more and more time together Asaka starts to fall for the other man. But Sasagawa’s got secrets of his own, such as the fact that his marriage isn’t as rosy as he makes it out to be. There’s a lot of drama in this book, but even at its more extreme it still seems like the kind of story that could happen in real life. It’s hard not to wince as the characters get themselves into worse situations, ruining things not only for themselves but also the people around them.
