Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Working as a chef in a prestigious restaurant that calls upon the traditions of Japan, Ippei moves through life with loyalty towards the family he works for, dedication to his occupation, and uncertainty regarding his past. His mother, Yukino-chan - a former geisha - refuses to share with him the identity of his father. As life progresses, and as politics and change take over the world as he knows it, Ippei finds himself addressing his mysterious father. "Dear Father..." he begins... and slowly begins to unwrap the layers of his life. This artistic drama is told in the form of a descriptive letter to his unknown father mixed with the main character's cynical humour, and contemplative nature.
Too great for this review
Ill try anyway… The story follows Ippei the son of a former geisha currently working as a chef. His comments throughout the show as if writing a letter were oddly one of the things i appreciated about the show the most.
The show really pulled me into his life, i was compelled to know what would happen in the family and the romance between him and Naomi had me watching each episode one after another without any breaks i ended up finishing it in a little more than 7-8 hours.
After the show was over i felt ecstatic to have seen something as great as this, every small amount of the show is still being reviewed and re-appreciated in my head like having finished a really great book and restating the lines.
Its a calm, smooth, rather relaxed show, but when sad, tense, or romantic moments take place the impact is magnificent, and i couldn’t picture it being made any other way..
