** Puni and the drama related to him. Along with showing just how hard it is to take care of a baby as two 16-year olds, it shows that not all teen couples think like Shigeru and Yuki and see teen pregnancy as something exciting. To most, it's actually frightening and not something that every teen is (or would be) ready for. This is seen with Puni's mother Mika, [[spoiler: who becomes completely stressed out because she was afraid to tell Shigeo about being pregnant, balloons in weight due to eating to cope with the stress and eventually tries to abandon Puni like a lot of teen mothers do (especially, when, unlike the main couple, they don't have any help/resources)]].
