Most popular Japanese TV serial in India after Giant Robot
7 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Oshin was the most popular Japanese TV serial on Indian television after Johnny sokko and his Giant Robot. I think the series was not completed on India's state TV channel.

Though I did not see all of oshin's episodes, I did see her from the beginning to when she got married. I admired how she could hlod views that were different from those elder t oher. Also, i was surprised to know many people taught her Japanese, I did not know then that learning Japanese was so diffcult !

I have heard praise for Oshin from ppl from other countries like Iran, etc.
