くま、サザエさんと会う Kuma meets Sazae-san


Sazae-sanサザエさんは国民的長寿番組である。
Sazae-san is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Machiko Hasegawa. The manga series was first published on 23 April 1946. The manga series dealt with contemporary situations in Tokyo until Hasegawa retired and ended the series on 21 February 1974. An anime comedy series started in October 1969 and is still on the air today. The anime series is the longest-running anime and non-soap opera scripted TV series in history. Sazae-san describes a lovable Sazae Fuguta and people surrounding her (Isono and Fuguta family, Isasaka family and others).

Sazae-sanくまは、この間、サザエさんのホーム、桜新町でサザエさん達に会った。波平の頭上に生えてる一本の毛と、ワカメちゃんのアホ毛と毛質が同じだった。親子だからかな。そして、磯野家のタマと、伊佐坂さんの家のハチは仲がいいのだろうか。すごく気になる。
I met Sazae-san and her family in Sakurashimmachi town (the home of Sazae-san). The hair quality of the only one hair on the bald head of Namihei (father of Sazae-san) was the same as the cowlick hair (frizz hair) of Wakame-chan (sister of Sazae-san). They are a parent and a child. And yet I am really curious whether Tama of Isono (a pet cat) and Hachi of Isasaka (a pet dog) are good friends or not.

サザエさんは海外でも放映されているみたいだけど、ちびまる子ちゃんよりも視聴率は低いらしい。サザエさんは、あまりにも登場人物が普通、話も普通だからなんだとか。でも、サザエさんを観ると落ち着くよねえ。
Sazae-san anime series are also broadcasted overseas. However the audience rating seems to be lower than Chibi Maruko-chan anime series because Sazae-san describes very ordinary characters and stories. And yet I really get calm when I watch Sazae-san.

サザエさんは、主に東芝がスポンサーだ。そして今、東芝は経営危機に瀕している。東芝はスポンサーを続けると今週発表したけれど、心配だ。
Sazae-san anime series is mainly sponsored by Toshiba. And now the company is in a financial crisis. I am anxious that the company can keep on sponsoring Sazae-san though the company announced so this week.
