Himono Onna Day!

Frighteningly embarrassing – a Japanese drama themed day – Himono Onna Day (translation: dried fish woman) Day!

Like most Japanese dramas – the premise is ridiculous and Hotaru No Hikari is no exception.

Dried-fish woman [himono onna – 干物女]: Himono onna (”dried-fish woman”) is an expression used in the movie Hotaru No Hikari to describe the main character, a woman in her 20s who has renounced the pursuit of romance. She spends her evenings reading manga and drinking at home alone, and she spends her weekends lazing around in bed. She’s a dried-fish woman.

So we gathered with armloads of Japanese snacks, cold green and barley tea, and cans of Sapporo and sat down to watch hours of the hour-long episodic drama.

Laugh at your own discretion.
