“IS” stands for “intersexual,” a term referring to people who cannot clearly be classified as male or female, and who may biologically possess characteristics of both sexes. Rokuhana's manga primarily deals with the troubles faced by the young Hoshino Haru (played by Fukuda), an intersexual who was registered as a girl at birth but has been raised as a boy. Goriki plays Aihara Miwako, a mysterious classmate who tries to get close to Haru. Inoue Masahiro has been cast as Ibuki Kenji, a member of the soccer club whom Haru begins having feelings for. Nishida Naomi and Minami Kaho play Miwako's and Haru's mothers, respectively.

Good one! This drama talks about the reality of this worldwide society, always ready to judge other people... beings without respect! IS is not fictional, it really exists. And furthermore, how many times we had (even if just a little) the thought of becoming a person of the oppost sex? it is the same damn thing! Of course everyone is different from each other, with different points of view, but why not respect others? We only want to be primarly understood. ('We' in general, everyone wants to be accepted by who we are). In addition, what is it perfection? Why must we 'change ourselves' to be accepted? Change ourselves to obtain an ideal perfection? No, that's nonsense. A change must be natural and not forced. A change done because we feel it, not because someone tell us to.
