After my mom moved to the US from Japan, she always kept in touch with the current events in Japan by subscribing to a Japanese newspaper and also listening to Japanese broadcasts on shortwave radio. When TVJapan, which carries a lot of NHK programming, became available from our satellite TV provider, I subscribed to it for her. Do you know what her first question to me was after I told her she can now watch NHK programs on her TV? She asked if NK was going to come knocking on our door to ask for payment. I was puzzled as to why she asked me that but I now fully understand where she was coming from with that question. LOL

I'm with Greenlight on this. I personally like the show. I'm more than halfway done through the series and I can't wait to get home to watch more!

But one thing I don't get is why Akichan and Yuichan had to get the approval of the tourism association before they were allowed to leave the town. Wasn't it enough to just get the approval of the parents? Or is this a small town thing in Japan?
