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).
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.
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.
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.
