ひよっこ Opening


One thing I love about the new asadora ひよっこ is the opening sequence. Along with the 60’s-style pop song, there are really cool miniature toys and scenery with the feeling of the era. But the really neat thing is, the scenery is made up of everyday objects from the 60’s. For instance, the people watching the olympic torch sit on typewriters instead of bleachers, there is a person fishing over a waterfall that is actually a washing machine, and so on. When I first saw the opening, I thought that it reminded me of one of my favorite Instagrammers, Tanaka Tatsuya… I wondered, did NHK get the idea from him? Well, according to his Instagram page, Tanaka is the creator of the opening sequence! How cool is that?!

Anyways, be sure to check out his Instagram and Miniature Calendar site. The scenes are so clever and fun.

I hope you had a wonderful day!

I suppose this only happens to people who have moved away from the place they grew up in, but it happens to me a lot – imagining landscapes.

I grew up in Los Angeles, and if you aren’t familiar with the area, there are mountains in the distance that you can see on clear days. Now I live in central Texas, and it is flat here – no mountains at all.

I wonder how many people also experience something like this.

At the very least, I am enjoying the mis-tweets on my Twitter feed, @barron. 🐦

I hope you had a nice Friday, and let’s have a great weekend.
