Catching up with Amachan (あまちゃん)

Amachan あまちゃん

OK, so I am about 50 episodes in on Amachan. I saw that there are soft-subs available so I decided to give it a watch and so far, it’s pretty good! There are a couple of really funny moments so far (Ghostbusters anyone?) and the ama/idol story is holding my interest. And you know what? The story makes a whole lot more sense with subtitles! I think what makes the story good is the variety of characters. Each one has his or her own motivations and wants, some are simple, some are complex, and some are mysterious. It’s fun to see how the plot evolves and characters come into the story. I can’t wait to fire up the tablet and watch another dozen episodes!

On a side note, while we were in California visiting my parents, we went to Mitsuwa Marketplace and they had a special Iwate stand set up where they were selling special regional food items. It was pretty cool. My mom and I took pictures with Amachan. Quite thrilling, isn’t it?

  1. Looks like you had a great time! Enjoy California! I love that you can keep your Japan connection wherever you go- I find the most interesting ‘Japanese’ things while I am abroad.
