Well, not actually "meet" - see from a distance.
Ellie and Massan!
I am very lucky to have got a ticket for a TV program recording by NHK in Otaru tomorrow afternoon: the guests are the actors from the Massan drama.
At the beginning of this drama many things annoyed me: the image change on the Rita Taketsuru story, the lack of English between the main couple, the stereotypical "gaijin" actions of the Ellie character...
But as the months go by I watch the drama and enjoy it. I marvel at the American actress' Japanese skills and I enjoy the little side stories and characters.
Now the storyline has moved from Kansai to Yoichi and it is wartime.
Funny though....the 1940s in Hokkaido were obviously very light snowfall years. Ellie and Ema never shovel snow outside the house! Very odd.
