Synopsis: Tsugaru Tsugumi (Nikaido Fumi) finds a man in the forest (Ayano Go) who claims to not be human. He has lived his life in the forest, and never ventured into the human world. But he met that girl, and a monster fell in love with a human. The immortal monster comes to know love, friendship and the world. It's a love story with a 100 year age difference. (rough synopsis by me, partially translated from official website)
Ending theme: Bouningen (Stick Figure) by RADWIMPS

Note: I'm learning Japanese, so there are almost definitely some inaccuracies. It'd be helpful if anyone shares re-timed subs for other versions, as I don't intend to download multiple versions. Also um... don't watch this if you happen to have any mushroom-related trauma.
Hope you enjoy this drama!
Episode 1 translation notes
The mushroom in the story "akanarikamitake" is I believe, fictional, so I left in Japanese. 'take' means mushroom, so I cut that out to make the word and subtitles shorter.
Episode 2 translation notes
- What Mikoto says to Ken is very similar to the lyrics of "Haha ni Sasageru Ballad" by Kaientai, Takeda Tetsuya's folk group
- Shishikui explaining how the kanji for 'work' is drawn is a reference to Kinpachi-sensei, Takeda Tetsuya's character in the famous school drama 3nen B-gumi Kinpachi sensei
