After that majestic charm mayu matsuoka shown in mondai no restau as chika I have decided to watch her in a lead role. So without reading the synopsis i have decided to watch this show. To my surprise this drama became the best ive seen this 2015, fast paced drama that tackels this problem called "genkai shuraku" which basically means the town is dying cause people are leaving and only old folks remains. If you watch the news you know that that is a big problem in japan right now. This drama shows how hard it is to become a farmer as it shows they're struggle to save this dying town with matching that powerful emotional music I can't help but got teary eyed. Im also familiar with the other cast which is sorimachi and tanihara..Ilove both actors. Sorimachi have this great father aura in him and his father and daughter chemistry with matsuoka is realistic. I have to admit the character by tanihara at start seems to be annoying, I also feel that his presence will kill the ambiance of this drama but gladly it seems that the scriptwriters fix his character and remove a bit of that manga characteristics. Matsuoka also is the perfect for her character, i dont feel that "daddy issue" in her character at all which may happen if this was played by other young more famous but not as talented actress.

This may feel like a boring drama to you but trust me that wont be the case cause the drama develops fast but without ruining the story.

an honest look at the difficulties faced by the hardworking farmers who bring hard-earned veggies to our (often reluctant) tables. great acting by all, especially teacher onizuka & his parents, & daughter. The strict discipline required for organic farming is highlighted, as are common bucolic issues such as an ageing workforce, greedy investors, market uncertainties and a stubborn desire to stick to the old ways which have worked for centuries. I'd certainly like to visitthe welcoming co-op shop, and i've finally learnt what the name "Choku Baijo" means...
