Synopsis
Born to a poor family in Yamanashi prefecture, in the year of 1903 at the age of 10, Muraoka Hanako was accepted by a Missionary school in Tokyo. It was her father's, Ando Kippei, greatest wish that his daughter get a higher education.

The Missionary school was attended by daughters from noble families, and as a charity case, Hanako was reminded by her father to never be inferior to her rich schoolmates. As the classes were carried out in English, Hanako faced a culture shock when she started school. Unable to understand the teachers nor able to grasp the conversation of her peers, Hanako resolved to work really hard at her studies.

This drama follows Hanako from her childhood, through her years at the missionary school, to her life as a school teacher and finally as the translator of L.M. Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables".

Yoshitaka was very good as Hanako but the title "Hanako to Anne" is kind of a misnomer. The book doesn't show up until about 3 weeks before the end of the drama and the printing of it doesn't happen until the last 3 episodes. They should have called it "Hanako to Renko". Speaking of which, they spent way too much time on Yukie and her character. It was a distraction a lot of the time. They could have just as easily told more about Hanako's family.

Extremely well written and acted, sometimes tragic but never boring.
