Storyline

An Israeli historic situational comedy based around the famous Israeli Japanes restaurant "the raising sun empire". The owner of the restaurant shemesh-sama and his sidekick Sasi-san, and their fight against the Koreans and Tentzer "the maniac" who attempted to take over their restaurant, the show was originally intended as a late night adult show but didn't prove too popular in its original run. surprisingly the reruns of the show were very well received by Kids and young teens for its anime like nonsensical plot and the show was later run on the Israeli kids channel but taken off the air in 2013 after it was declared "too sexual for the target audience".
