The story of Shinmai Shimai no Futari Gohan follows Sachi (played by Anna Yamada) and Ayari (played by Karen Otomo), a pair of young ladies who suddenly become step-sisters when their parents marry. At first Sachi is intimidated by Ayari's sharp-eyed appearance, while Ayari is naturally shy, but when the two girls are left home alone after their parents embark on a globe-trotting honeymoon, they discover common ground: Sachi is a total foodie, while Ayari loves to cook.


The live-action Shinmai Shimai no Futari Gohan TV drama will broadcast on TV Tokyo on Thursdays during the 25:00 time slot (actually on Friday at 1:00am JST) beginning on October 10, 2019.
