“Atelier” Contemporary Japanese TV Series – A Brief First Review

AtelierNow watching, hooked on “Atelier” Contemporary Japanese TV Series, aired 2015, available on Netflix as of 19-Apr-2018.

“Atelier” means workshop or studio and in this case it is about lingerie* designed and produced to individual customer order. Seriously.

Our young, recent-university-graduate protagonist adores textiles and human curves, and goes to work for Emotion Lingerie. Where she learns a lot plus coming of age plus .. well ..

At first I thought this might be a Japanese version of “The Devil Wears Prada” but from there it goes way beyond. Our heroine is no wimp! Nor is her boss  : )  No spoilers here!

*I apologize** for images of underwear designs and underwear models in this drama – Shazai shimasu! 謝罪します!

**But not very much – Shikashi sorehodo ōku wanai!  しかしそれほど多くはない!
