Yoshino Koharu is a young girl trying to look for a job in Tokyo, but is only met with a series of rejections. However, she has a seemingly lucky break when she receives a job offer to work with the tourism board of the economically struggling Manoyama village as their "Queen". With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought. With nowhere else to go, Yoshino reluctantly becomes Queen of Manoyama.

Dub was okay.

A slice of life story....
Showing the decline of small towns, and how they are trying too survive.
It also shows the misconceptions of those wanting to go to the "Big City",

It shows the personal struggles of the characters, and the drive behind their work.
