Horikita said the theme is one of recovery, and added that it is also relevant to Japan today, which is trying to recover from the devastation of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Kamata, where most of the drama is set, used to be described as a city that creates fashion trends. It is most likely because the Shochiku Cinema Kamata Studio used to stand where Aroma Square is today, filming more than 1,200 movies in 15 years until it moved to Ofuna in 1936.
