It is about Sumire, a girl born in the uptown of Kobe in the early Showa period. In the wake of wartime devastation, she works hard toward making children's clothes for a living, and later establishes a first-ever children's goods store in Japan.
Cast & Credits
It follows the life of Bandou Sumire, through her young life, loss, war's hardships, family bonds in hard times and most importantly the role of women during those days. It's easily considered an inspirational and motivational drama.
Despite the drama taking every part of Sumire's life and the people around her, it never, for any second, felt slow or boring. Firstly, the transition from every stage of life was a success and secondly, you could clearly see how every character grows and develops.
Actors did a very good job. Many of whom I have seen in a show for the first time, so this was a really good first impression.
I can't ignore the OST, it was so fitting for every mood. I have to admit my current ringtone is the drama's main theme and I have been using it for a few months now. Not to forget Mr.Children performing the opening so extra marks for that as well!
If you are looking for a new asadora to pick up or are new to them, this is greatly recommended. Be warned though. It will be an emotional roller coaster and you will certainly face some withdrawal symptoms once you finish it. The risk is worth it!
