Not quite a dorama entry

I've watched several doramas lately, and haven't felt up to recapping them, but I felt the need to mention the very charming one I'm watching now. It's called Suika, and it's about a boarding house and the peculiar residents thereof. The summary on d-addicts does a fairly good job of describing it, but doesn't capture the pure weirdness that makes it so wonderful. And for me to explain the weirdness would take forever. So I'll just say this: it's a Japanese TV show with mariachi music as the theme song, and in the second episode a grown man cries because someone took off his toenail polish while he was sleeping. That, I think, is the best I can possibly do.
