Tora-san Collector's Set: Volume 1 (Japanese) (Widescreen)

About this item

"Tora-san", a 48-film series, is by far the longest-running film series in Japanese history and the second-longest overall in the world. Typical story lines have Tora-san, a suitcase carrying, leisure-suit wearing, traveling salesman visiting different parts of Japan, where he meets a beautiful young woman, is smitten, and tells her if she ever needs help, she should come visit him in his hometown. After returning home to his family, which disapproves of his wandering lifestyle, the damsel in distress shows up, and Tora-san falls in love. Alas, his attempts to help her, and win her heart, invariably cause her to fall for someone else. Included in the set are the first four films of the series, "It's Tough Being A Man", "Tora-san's Cherished Mother", "Tora-san, His Tender Love" and "Tora-san's Grand Scheme".

Audio commentary by film historian Stuart Galbraith IV, A 28-page booklet with essays and a reflection by director Yoji Yamada, Program notes, Cast & crew bios, Trailers, Image galleries.

Japanese Language Films with English Subtitles.

When I was younger, this series of films was something I enjoyed. Every year, I looked forward to another episode. My television was not as clear as the HD now and the enhancement that Anime does to this is truly wonderful and appreciated. This brings back many fond memories of the Japan I enjoyed.
