18-year-old Urano Suzu marries Hojo Shusaku and moves from Eba City to Kure City in Hiroshima Prefecture in the middle of the Pacific War. As Japan slides into a war it cannot get out of, the townspeople go on with their “ordinary” lives. Supplies are short, and family and friends get sent to the battlefield. Suzu and the Hojo family battle such anxieties as they try to live positively. (Source: jdramas.wordpress) ~~ Adapted from the manga “Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni” by Fumiyo Kouno. Edit Translation

By chance, I happen to watch the animation movie first of this story. It was too beautiful and I searched a lot about the manga and found out that there is the live drama made as well. I was so happy to find the series (even though it's complete, it's still raw. But luckily I understand Japanese a little bit, so I get most of it). After watching the anime, reading the manga and watching the drama, I felt like I couldn't get enough of watching Suzu and Shusaku's life together (I still can't move on yet.) The story is just beautiful.

The setting of the drama is in Kure, a naval city in Hiroshima province. The story told about Suzu's and her new family life during the harsh time of WWII. (it touch a little bit about the Atomic bombing at Hiroshima). It was very interesting to see how the Japanese lived and what they felt during the war. Personally, I was born from a country which was used to be occupied by the Japanese. The textbook only taught about one side view of the war. Being the oppressed or the occupier. It was interesting to see it from the other side of the view and learn that no one wants to go to war and war really does not benefit anybody (the one who starts always is the person from the above not the people).

I'm not very familiar with the casts. But they sure did a wonderful job. The act feels really natural and the story is not being forced at all. I can say very confidently that even if you read the manga, you won't be disappointed or being bored with this drama.

♥ この世界の片隅に ♥

この世界の片隅に is filmed in my hometown in Hiroshima-Kure ♥ This drama is about Urano Suzu who lives with her family and her parents want to get her married. So they introduce her to Hojo family who she met when she was little...She lives in Eba where she grew up and after her marriage she moved to Kure in Hiroshima in the middle of the pacific war. Supplies are short, and family and friends get sent to the battlefield...Suzu and the Hojo family battle such anxieties as they try to live positively. They try to make a child but they end up adopting one from the war which ended.
This drama is adapted from the manga which I read recently and fell in love with everything in it. It was simply a masterpiece and not only because it's based in my hometown but also because I really love how the ancient people lived at the past. I would give everything for his world to return back to that time where everyone was so honest and everything was more simple ♥ ♥♥
