Finally caught up on my backlog and watched the last three episode of this series. I don't really have anything to add to the discussion, other than to say a huge THANK YOU!! to Arienai for giving this anime the high-quality sub it deserved.

Spoiler for ep11:

I agree, thanks to Arienai! I really enjoyed this series. There are precious few shows about adults, dealing with problems I can really relate to. This show has a meaning for me, as a result. If it weren't for you guys, I couldn't have watched it.

ARIENAI ROCKS!

Nicely done. That's all I can say is nicely done. Should this series ever be licensed in the states I'll be sure to definitely support it by buying the DVDS.

Hataraki-Man Live Action Drama Television Series Announced

Starring Kanno Miho in the lead role of Matsukata Hiroko, aka "Hiro," the live action television drama series adaptation of the popular Hataraki-Man manga by Anno Moyocco has been officially announced, debuting in October 2007 on NTV, Wednesday nights, 10:00pm.

SPORTS NIPPON NEWSPAPERS broke the news, which has subsequently received front page news coverage at Yahoo! JAPAN. It has also been covered on English websites Tokyograph and Anime News Network.

An unofficial source at 2ch had actually revealed over a month ago in this post on a Hataraki-Man anime thread that Kanno Miho would play Matsukata Hiroko in a live action drama version of Hataraki Man on NTV.

And, regardless what a handful of anonymous naysayers say on 2ch, the Hataraki Man anime has been a commercial hit and a popular show. Among other things, check out what Hataraki-Man director Ono Katsumi, Fuji TV assistant producer Nakano Kumiko, and DIP marketing director Aihara/Aibara Hidenobu have to say about its success in my earlier post on this thread.

(DIP Corporation is one of the sponsors of the Hataraki-Man animation series.)

Wow this will be fun to watch i will defietly be on the look out for it. I really need to finish the anime at some point. But a live action drama should prove to be funny as hell

The first thing that popped into my mind while watching Hataraki Man, is how this would be the usual material for J-Dorama. I was half-expecting a live drama version to already exist, not unlike how a live-drama version of Nodame Cantible had already been produced before the anime version was released. So it's quite surprising to learn that the live-drama adaptation was confirmed only a few weeks ago.

That aside, it's great show. It offers an honest depiction of working life, and as a struggling editor and writer myself, I empathise completely with Hiroko.

As for the people who disliked the "moral" of the story, I'll offer my tentative opinion -- I think it's a fairly realistic reflection of work culture in many East Asian countries, not just Japan. (To be sure though, I think Japan is the only country that pushes it to an unhealthy extreme.) I'm no sociologist, but I'm guessing that this is partly because many East Asians define themselves through their work. For some people, it's not just a job -- it's a lifelong vocation. Seen from this perspective, it's easier to understand why many of us are willing to sacrifice so much for our careers. It would also be easier to see why Confucianist Asia considers this to be the "ideal" work ethic.

Of course, for this ethic to work in the long run, you need to be passionate about what you do, and in Hiroko's case, she certainly seems to love her job. Hence her workaholism.

As for whether I think this is "ideal", I don't know where to stand actually. I'd like to think that if I find something meaningful to do, I'd dedicate everything to make it work. Whether I become a workholic as a result, well, only time will tell. Yup, that's right, I haven't found my "meaning" yet, not unlike poor Hiroko. But like her, I have also had those brief flashes of inspiration that make all the hard work seem worthwhile. So all is not lost. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

RedLeaf, interesting post. Have you ever seen Ikiru, by Akira Kurasawa? There was an interesting tension in that movie, because at first the protagonist is doing his job and hasn't really lived. Towards the end he finds a way to 'live' (find some meaning in life, might be a good way of saying it), and it turns out to be through his job. After he is gone, he is revered as a saint, because he did his job.

Heh, not going to go too much into the socialogical debate here but there's no right choices on the personal level imo. It's a matter of what you want to achieve and how you go about it.

Finally got around to watching this series. Liked it quite a bit but wished it were longer. Are there manga spoilers anywhere?

Can look online. I believe at least some of the manga has been scanalated, try mangatraders or some other fan sharing manga website.

Looks like Arienai has shut everything down and googling does not help.

Anyone has any pointers as to where I can download this show?
