ちびまる子ちゃん (Chibi Maruko-chan) Live-Action Specials
The comparison between the live version Maruko (top) and the anime version Maruko (bottom)……well, you dun need me to tell you that, do you?
I have never watched an episode of Chibi Maruko-chan anime…but I have definitely enjoyed the live-action specials. The first one is the funnier one of the two, while the 2nd one focuses more on teaching moral lessons.
森迫 永依 (Morisako Ei) does a great job portraying Maruko, be it ridiculously comical, or heartwarming scenes. And she’s so cute (dun get the wrong idea).
But somehow, the Maruko in the drama series doesn’t capture my attention…actually, the rest of the cast do not attract much attention from me, except the grandfather, portrayed by モト 冬樹 (Moto Fuyuki). He’s the only one in the main cast from the specials that remained in the drama series…and he’s funny. 🙂
Anyway, a comparison between the ending of the anime, and the live action special (first one).
