TV Station:TBS


From this autumn, TBS will be opening up a new drama slot on Wednesday midnights challenging to produce the best edgy dramas and fostering future creators that can lead TBS drama. The first drama is TARO's CANDY HOUSE starring Joe Odagiri.

Taro (Odagiri) was raised by his grandmother, Akiko (Kaoru Yachigusa), who runs a candy store. He helps her to manage the store but the financial situation is very tough. Regular customers like Saegusa (Ryo Katsuji) - Taro's old friend who wants to be a screenwriter - gather at the shop to help Taro as he struggles to save his grandmother's store. Meanwhile, their other old friend, Reiko (Machiko Ono) comes back to the town with her son after getting divorced. As old friends gather again, they start to face a past of old dreams and heartaches, and then they start to realize something important.

(2018-08-15) Nice little dorama about bonds, acceptance and letting go. The first half was hard to understand and get through; the second one is far better and softly touches heart. I cried a bit and also laughed a bit. This is not an easy drama to watch, it is reaaaally low paced and the music sometimes makes everything to seem far too forced, BUT. In the end, it talks about many things most of us certainly don't really want to face during our lives: our friends dying, our elders getting sick, our context pushing us to change. We can't live in the past forever, can we? Episodes are short (23 min) so I would certainly recommend it.

Sweet but having lived in Japan I know that these Shitamachi pockets of an older way of living only exist on TV.
