Hey I'm looking for a jdrama series i saw back around 2006-2007 so it might have come out around that time or a bit earlier. Its about a guy who lives at home with 3 or 4 of his older sisters. At his job he meets a girl and through some circumstances eventually they go back to his house later. The ...

I'm actually really excited about this. I love Kimura & Shibasaki Kou and I also love dramas with sci-fi elements to them, so I figure I can't lose. It's my most-anticipated drama this fall.
