About “The Handsome Suit”

Takuro Ohki (Tsukaji Muga) is in his thirties, alone and for lack of a better word, downright ugly. Being the butt of many jokes and being turned down by the girl of his dreams (Kitagawa Keiko) are just some of the crises he faces that send him into a deep malaise. Most of these social dilemmas stem from his unattractiveness. As a result, Takuro yearns for nothing more but to be physically attractive. True enough, his pleas are answered when he comes across the “Handsome Suit”, a revolutionary invention that alters one’s appearance for the better. With this suit, he is transformed into the suave and dashing Annin Tsukiyama (Tanihara Shosuke). Is this the answer to all his problems?
