Kodoku no Gurume, a food documentary drama series, is about a personal import agent, Goro Inogashira (played by Yutaka Matsushige), who goes on an endless journey in search of good food. All shops and restaurants shown in the drama are actual restaurants as viewers have been flocking to those places that have been featured to have a taste of the food featured on the show.
Matsushige will once again reprise his role of Goro as the "lone gourmet" and eat to his heart's content. Season 4 will focus on "returning to its roots". The staff will search for the restaurants and the food that they want Goro to eat, and this season will once again feature "yakiniku" which has appeared in every season to date. And not just the city, Goro goes on various business trips and will visit places such as Hakone.
Matsushige comments: "They didn't find anything wrong with me during my general checkup so I'll be doing this again. With 36 episodes already, we've run out of restaurants and things to feature. We might have to reuse some of the scenes we did before. And when people turn 51, they don't eat as much as they used to. I might have to ask a stand-in to take my place during the dining scenes. If that's all fine with you, then please put on your pajamas and brush your teeth first before watching this drama.".
One of the very few good programs
Goro-chan has come back━━━━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━━━━!!!!
Goro~♪ Goro~♪ Goro~♪ I-no-ga-shi-ra♪ Fu~♪
The most delicious-looking one they featured up to now was the wasabi-don
The garlic-only yakisoba "patan" in Yokohama looked so good.
Ughh, makes me want to drink barley juice right in the morning. And it was also memorable seeing Narumi Konno grew up to become one beautiful adult.
I've been wanting to watch this again
So they took the concept of a reporter looking directly at a camera and makes adlibs to give his comments and instead used an actor who says scripted lines by himself, in his head. People started saying that the concept was fresh.
Food terrorism at that time of the night is a crime.
I don't know where the boundary between fiction and documentary is and it's been bugging me.
About the restaurant staff, are those civilians/amateurs? Are those character actors? Which is it?
I'd want them to make a 2-hour program with the author going on a food trip regularly. While he drinks hot water and squashed barley.
So the restaurants featured here will once again have long queues...
I actually want to watch Shinya Shokudo more than this series.
They're doing this again? I don't think it's that popular, though.
The one-man yakiniku in Kawasaki episode is still saved in my HDD w
I want to watch this one, Shinya Shokudo, and Yukemuri Sniper once around every 2 years. And Shuuden Gohan too, that one gives me peace of mind too so I want them to make a sequel of that
I still have all the episodes recorded, and I wonder if I'll still watch them again
Please show a marathon of Season 1 to Season 3
So it'll be a year already? Time sure flies by so quickly.
To tell the truth, I hope they did one last April. That way, they showed one in winter, spring, summer, and fall.
He should also eat outside the country once in a while. It's getting too tedious if they keep on showing restaurants within Japan.
Please do a Kansai restaurant too
There are episodes that are reminiscent of the concept of the manga, but it's all generally original. Squashed barley is perfect during the summer. And they'll be filming it during the rainy season so we might see a lot of rain. But this means that the only BD-BOX collection that I have will once again increase.
Honestly, the parts where he eats sweets is unnecessary
There's no need for the dessert as well as the special appearance by the mangaka. I want to watch Shinya Shokudo more than this.
This is a program that has nothing to do with drinking alcohol
I don't dislike the drama parts where there are those unique actors. And I also look forward to seeing if the restaurant staff actors are fitting in nicely in the restaurant.
I hope they just let Kusumi-san choose the restaurants. It's all inclined too much towards Korean yakiniku and Szechuan cuisine.
No more, please
It's a matter of preference, but I don't like seeing the author in there w
But it looks like the author eats more heartily, though
I hope they also come out with a Goro figurine - Matsushige version www
I'm looking forward to this. I live in a place where we don't have TV Tokyo so the broadcast will be so delayed (´・ω・`) I want to eat that garlic flavored pork tonkatsu they featured in Season 1
It's finally starting. I hope they keep broadcasting this the whole year.
But you'll actually get sick if you eat something like those each and every single mealtime, though
Thursday mornings will once again be so difficult
So our battle against the late-night snack terrorist will once again commence
