Makoto Kashiba is an elite bank clerk and works for a big bank at its Tokyo HQ. Due to a minor mistake, he is demoted to a small branch office in a country town. He is devastated by his situation. There, he meets beautiful Yoshino Ikoma, who runs a goldfish scooping store. Makoto falls in love with her at first sight.Tokyo-based bank clerk Makoto (Matsuya Kashiba) has been banished to a backwater village after insulting his boss; he realizes that his problem is that he has kept his emotions so under wraps that they burst out of him against his will. In the village, he meets Yoshino (Kanako Momota), a lovely young woman whose job involves helping customers “scoop” goldfish, a task that gives them great joy; and Asuka (Nicole Ishida), an exuberant pub owner who takes a shine to him. But Makoto only has eyes for Yoshino, who has her heart set on someone else….This is a sweet and tender musical – yes, musical, people burst into song every few minutes, when they aren’t scooping fish, that is! It’s based on a manga and has the kind of visual appeal of that genre, being full of colour and light, a physical joy to watch! But it’s the music that steals the show. It probably won’t take your fancy if you don’t like musicals, but if you do this is a sweet and lovely confection to behold.
