† Yama Onna Kabe Onna: Simply Enjoyable †

Yama Onna Kabe Onna (山おんな壁おんな) is a Japanese comedy series that makes me laugh no matter how many times I've watched. The word yamma means mountain (山) while the word kabe means wall (壁).

The series features Megumi Aoyagi, a career woman who is popular at her workplace due to her superb performance in selling handbags.

Other than her outstanding ability in promoting handbags, Aoyagi is also a career minded woman who is able to make strong decisions, bringing numerous chances of revival for her department. There are many times that her department is facing critical moments but things often turns out positive thanks to her help.

Aoyagi may seem strong and elegant outside but deep inside her heart, she carries an inferior complex with regard to her flattened chest and that is how she obtains the nickname "wall woman" (kabe onna) eversince the appearance of Marie Mariya the "mountain woman" with big breast in her department.

On top of Mariya's well proportioned body figure, Mariya is also gifted in promoting handbags to the customers without much efforts. Aoyagi finds her position and status in the department has turned out to be unstable.

However, Aoyagi and Mariya's friendship has been built up through numerous obstacles and difficulties as they work side by side in the same bag department.

Personally I think this series is worth watching. To be honest, I wasn't that interested with this series when my friend Alvin first introduced me to it a year ago. However, after 15 minutes of watching, this comedy turned out to be hilarious. Therefore I would say this series is simply enjoyable and unique!
