Japanese Hit Series ‘Amachan’ will be aired on TV5 this October

I'm so excited to watch Amachan! It's one of Japan’s highest-rating drama in 2013 and it finally found its way into Philippine television. Local channel TV5 recently signed an affiliation agreement with Japan Broadcasting Corporation, NHK, to telecast the said series.

 TV5 representatives, including CEO Noel Lorenzana, and Japan International Broadcasting Inc. President and CEO Yoshihiko Shimizu participated in a Japanese traditional sake toast ceremony, during the contract signing event held at The Palace Pool Club to celebrate the newly-forged partnership.

Representatives from both parties also carried out the symbolic floating of sea urchin lanterns in connection to the major elements used in the drama-comedy series.

Amachan is an upbeat drama with moments of comedy about the journey of high-schooler Aki, played by popular Japanese actress Rena Nōnen, in pursuing her dreams of becoming an “ama”, a Japanese traditional free-diver of seafood, particularly of sea urchins in the series, and a pop idol. The series is set in the Tohoku region of Japan, which endured the biggest blow of the devastating tsunami disaster in 2011.

The series was an instant hit in Japan, becoming one of the top-rated morning dramas in Japan. Newcomer actress, Nōnen, even won a Best Actress trophy in Japan’s 17th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix for her role in the series. Amachan not only won the hearts of Japanese viewers, the production of the series in the Tohoku region was also seen to have contributed in efforts to restore the region.

The hit drama-comedy earned Japan’s prestigious Galaxy Award for best television program in 2013, and will soon hit Philippine television – making Amachan the only Galaxy Award Gran Prix winner drama series to air in the country.
