I've Become Addicted to this Show
3 July 2020 | by rgzmtrnSee all my reviews

A very engaging TV show that I've simply come to really love, depicting both the frailty and the resilience of the human condition. Beautifully written and scripted, I only wish I knew fluent Japanese instead of relying on the closed-caption translations. One particular episode, Season 2 Episode 4, "Fried Chicken Wings", revolved around the life of Chizuru Morino, an attractive model who realizes her youthful looks are behind her and she must come to terms with the end of her modeling career. Simply cannot find the name of the actress who portrayed Chizuru in this episode. Funny, her names does not appear in any list of cast members of this episode, and you would think they would at least list the name of the episode's central character! Does anyone out there know her name?
