Naka Riisa will play a 24-year-old woman named Mitsuko who is 9 months pregnant to an unknown father, but still puts aside her own problems to help others. Her character is described as having a deep sense of duty and humanity, traits which are getting less and less common in modern society. The hope is that Mitsuko's disposition will tug at the heartstrings of Japanese audiences much like the Tora-san character did through the Showa era. Nakamura Aoi will play Mitsuko's childhood friend, Yoichi. Written by https://mydramalist.com/1715-mitsuko-delivers

Sensation in this world of individualism
24 January 2016 | by tonor-10391See all my reviews

At first sight, what a quick break in a motion film! There's a pregnant woman letting out shortly by herself like a poet, but leaves its remains to those of others, and so-called to this world with echoes.

I couldn't sleep while watching this like other films when fatigued with daily lives. Cause there's actually something to rethink & rewind my ordinary expectations as it was.

What is those? I asked myself and made me write this review for me and others not yet experienced like me. She, Mitsuko is somewhat far away from the etiquette built by our system to maintain it in peace. Nevertheless, she doesn't throw a stone onto the system, only talks herself and replies with compassion to the encounters and neighbors in her world.

Our lives aren't often 'those', in which maybe you and I want to be painted with our touch and colors. If so, watch this film for you to realize yours by her language, gesture, and co-existence with neighbors for the time being
