Shitamachi Rocket TBS Episodes 1-3
If you liked Hanzawa Naoki, Shitamachi Rocket is for you. If you're like me and you find the overacting, cartoonish villains and frequent use of soaring music off-putting, Abe Hiroshi does make this TBS version of Shitamachi Rocket slightly bearable but I'd rather watch the WOWOW version.
There is no Dan Mitsu and Ueto Aya to really drag the acting but I just cannot comprehend why the director would tell the actors to act like they are villains in a kids show. Most Japanese like the Hanzawa Naoki acting so what do I know? I might put up with the TBS version just for Abe and to make it easier to watch the WOWOW one and maybe do a comparison down the line.
