A foreigner living in Osaka has pondered today about the oddity of NHK producing so many dramas about tigers.
“All I ever kiku on NHK is ‘tiger drama’ this, ‘tiger drama’ that,” says outside person Natasha Lawrence.
“It must have something to do with the Hanshin Tigers.”
Lawrence says it’s surprising she’s never actually seen a tiger on NHK “given their obsession with tiger dramas”.
“Watashi am bikkurishita-ed that watashi has never miru-ed a tiger or even a lion on TV.”
