Fishbowl Wives, a Netflix J-drama based on Ryo Kurosawa’s manga of the same name, is a melodramatic and sensual melodrama. It follows the love affairs of six Japanese women who live in the same Tokyo luxury high-rise. While cheating on one’s spouse isn’t a sign of intelligence, the people on the show all have different justifications that help to justify their actions.
Furthermore, emotional intelligence influences how the main protagonists manage their profession while dealing with their troubled marriage at home, as well as how far they are willing to sacrifice everything they have built.
The obvious philanderer Takuya Hiraga (Masanobu Ando) is without a doubt the least intelligent main character on the popular live-action Japanese Netflix TV show. He not only physically attacks his lovely wife Sakura on multiple instances, but he also cheats on her on several occasions. Twice. As a result of his actions, Sakura finally leaves him and files for divorce.
Takuya’s negligence and blindness to the reality that he has a beautiful, handsome, and committed wife, despite owning a business, has simply proved what a fool he is.
Hisako: Nicknamed “The Headache Wife” because of her frequent migraines brought on by previous trauma, Hisako’s unsettled state of mind is comprehensible. Unfortunately, this does not conceal the fact that she is having an affair with Baba, her own baby daddy. Indeed, Hisako’s tragic memory loss leads to an unusual relationship with an old sweetheart she doesn’t recognise.
Yuka: Sorry for the inconvenience. Yuka (Shizuka Nakamura) is sexually rejected by her husband after expressing her desire to have a child in the Netflix Japanese series. Yuka is wise to speak her mind and avoid repressing her true feelings, a prudent decision that has resulted in huge changes in her life.
Noriko (Saori Seto) is a talented home cook with a wide range of culinary skills who agrees to partake in her husband’s strange fascination with having an affair with a coworker…while he watches. Apart from her professional abilities, Noriko is perceptive enough to recognise that her husband’s coworker is more compassionate than her husband.
Yuriha: Yuriha is a little smarter than the other female adulterers on the show since she doesn’t actively seek an affair; instead, she lets one develop naturally.
When her inattentive spouse devotes much more time to his mother than to her, Yuriha is wise enough to follow her heart. She’s also figured out how to use cosmetics to hide the crippling scar on her face.
Ran (Sanyee Yuan) is the show’s moral compass, portraying Haruto’s worried younger sister who tries desperately to put an end to his affair with Sakura on the Netflix guilty-pleasure romance. Her ethical knowledge and right-headed decorum are far advanced for a high school student, which adds to her admiration.
Masako (Jennifer Sun Bell): As Sakura’s high-powered lawyer in charge of her divorce case, Masak0 boasts an extraordinarily sharp legal mind, which she uses to help win the case. Masako, one of the few female characters on the show who isn’t prone to infidelity, has a higher level of moral sophistication than almost every other character.
