Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Time for a TV review of….The Laughing Salesman New!

 

About The Laughing Salesman

The Laughing Salesman (Warau Salesman) is a TV animation made in 1989-93, aired late night due to its content (black humor). Original comic is by Fujiko Fujio A. Compare to his co-writer Fujiko F. Fujio who created Doraemon and other popular kids shows, Fujiko Fujio A. would likely prefer dark stuff like this show.

Moguro Fukuzo the laughing salesman comes and helps to fill people’s loneliness. It anyhow seems to work out first but people always go too far and end up get caught up in desires.

The Original First Episode

The very first episode, entitled “The reliable face,” is available on the official Youtube channel (change country setting at the bottom if necessary).  This episode shows how bosses’ life is like. Being stressed with high expectations from people around, the main character reached his limits and just wanted to be free from all pressures. But escaping reality leads to a shocking ending . Caution, the content may be disturbing. Stay alert. It was quite traumatic for small Mr. Wada. It’s in Japanese but you may get it without subtitles.

 

The Laughing Salesman New

After almost three decades, he is back on TV! It seems a lot way milder than the first series but still got the taste – dark and cynical. Seeing this makes me think things have changed but people haven’t. The world is still full of rotten desires!

 

Lastly

How do you find it?  It may or may not be your new favorite (I kinda like it now!). If you got a chance, please check it out.

See you around!

Memories With Wadamobile The First

Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. We have good and bad news.

Good news: We’ve got a new (used) car. \(^o^)/

Bad news: We’ve let go of our old car. (T_T)

Well, it was rather old and my mechanic told me it’d be rather better investment considering how much it’d cost me for repairing more frequently and maintenance for Wadamobile The First.

Memories With Wadamobile The First

We don’t know cars, but we’d had a very attached feeling to our old car after riding years. You know, it was like a part The Wadas. Literary we’ve driven on mountains, beaches, and even in the snow (mountain) !

End up we have to let it go. But before moving on to the new one, I would like to share our memories/adventures with it.

 

Lastly

Now Wadamobile The Second is on the go! More adventures await ahead of us. Keep you updated.

See you around!
