Tokyo Love Story DVD English Subtitle
[DVD]
$24.99
by Hideo Cota Date Added: Saturday 21 August, 2010
Tokyo Love Story - a love drama starring Oda Youji and Suzuki Honami. The series starts with Oda being transferred to the Tokyo headquarters of his clothing manufacturer company. He is picked up at the airport by the bubbly, and spontaneous Suzuki, an OL (office lady) from his company. But before taking him to HQ she lectures him about his uninteresting demeanor and on enjoying life. Although irritated, “Who IS this woman? Why am I being subjected to this by a total stranger?” nevertheless, he is unable to respond. Later in the episode, it is shown that Oda requested the Tokyo transfer to be near a girl who has been living in Tokyo since graduating high school. He has had a crush on her since junior high but had been unable to profess his love for her. He has come to Tokyo to woo her. Unfortunately, SHE loves Oda’s best friend, and THAT guy is a playboy. Oda becomes her support mechanism while she’s repeatedly heartbroken. Meanwhile, the playboy is in love with a medical intern. Also, Suzuki (the company OL) has declared she loves Oda, and that they will be lovers. You follow all that? Although my wife and I did have (several times) “Oh come ON!! What are you doing!!” moments, we enjoyed the series. Additional note, this series was wildly popular with young working women in Japan. In fact, on the nights this series were broadcasted, one newscaster observed, "woman have largely disappeared around town on Monday nights..." presumably to watch the latest episode! The audience share for this show averaged 22.9%, and the rating for the final episode was 32.3%. In another words, one third of all TV viewers in Japan watched the last episode!
English captioning was not good. Although meaning did come across (in general), many details and pertinent info was completely left out. I had to do a LOT of translating for my wife. Nevertheless, it’s mostly common conversational Japanese, and the plot is easy to follow: We recommend this series.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
