Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko

Unconcerned, impetuous and always ready to succumb to a snack, mother Nikuko often falls in love with the wrong person, is taken advantage of and often moves. But with a boundless cheerfulness, she just always gives it her all, thus upholding her life motto: "Ordinary is best". Of course, her 11-year-old daughter Kikuko is often embarrassed by her loud and somewhat naive mother, because the two are not a bit alike. In contrast to her mother, Kikuko is rather quiet and already seems very grown up. A breath of fresh air is finally brought into the girl's ordinary life by her unusual classmate Ninomiya, with whom she hesitantly becomes friends. However, Kikuko fears that she will soon have to leave everything behind again as soon as Nikuko meets a new man. Then, when Kikuko suddenly falls ill, an old secret comes to light that puts her bond with Nikuko to the test...

Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko is a heartwarming and poignant comedy about an unusual family and an invitation to everyone to just be who you are. Studio 4┬░C (Children of the Sea, Mutafukaz) delivers colourful, detailed animations that especially emphasise the feelings of the protagonists.
