Mop Girl

The story revolves around Hasegawa Momoko, who due to an accident was given some special ability – the ability to go back in time to save people from death. Her dormant special ability manifested itself when she blundered on her dream job as a wedding coordinator. As a result, she was transferred to a special cleaning department – doing undertaking jobs: funeral ceremonies, handling dead bodies and cleaning up blood pool of death crime scenes. Although she is a hardworking individual, she is naïve and can get clumsy at times, adding to the comical relief for the series. She also has an obsession with muscles, lots of it.

On her first day of work in the new department, that special ability that hidden inside her was awakened - able to travel back in time (usually the day before the death occurs) when she comes in contact with items belonging to the deceased. As a result, she is able to somehow change the future of those people, saving them in the process.

Although the show is entertaining and comical at times, it gets repetitive after the first 3 episodes. She encounters dead person, gets to know more about them, comes into contact with the deceased items and gets thrown back in time to save them from imminent death. The déjà vu thing gets tiring after a while, but still a good watch if you want to pass time.
