What is needed is not a radical originality but a subtle change.

Shinichi Kamoshita


The producer famous for a TV drama, "Unequal Apples" says "adaptation of a famous poem" is the origin of art creation, taking Rakugo, Kabuki, and movies as an analogy. There is a fixed style at first and it is changed further, so the audience can grasp exactly how it has changed. Life will also be maintained by continuation of taking care of the traditional style and adjusting it little by little every day. From "Survey information" in  "TV diary" of the July / August issue of last year by TBS.
