A sob story with no artistic merit, only interesting to get a glimpse of the skewed Japanese view of history
This show is such a ridiculously obvious attempt at painting the Japanese immigrants to the US as noble, superior people who work harder and are all-around better than their American hosts.
Of course it disregards the facts known about the actual internment camps and practically stylises them as Nazi death camps.
All Americans in this drama are stereotypically sinister and racist people, while the Japanese are hard-working victims with no flaws whatsoever.
As this drama has been made for Japanese audiences, of course it is dumbed to the point that it becomes nothing but a fairytale for children, and the Japanese makers of this probably had a very good reason to not release it in the US.
