Minami operates a law firm in collaboration with his same-sex partner, Masafumi Yoshida. Minami's mother, who was at first puzzled at the relationship between the two, was soon in charge of office chores. Minami yells at his mother, "This is a work place. It's not like a house." He intended to draw a line between her public and private lives, but he realizes that "he can be dependent on her because she is his mother" from the expression of Yoshida staying close by." From the same coauthored book as yesterday, "Our Colorful Everyday."
