The Japanese Tony Robbins
13 June 2003 | by son_of_minyaSee all my reviews

I have always enjoyed Japanese television, but this series really hit me more than any other. Can honestly say that watching it has changed my life.

Imagine a bizarre hybrid of Touched By an Angel and a ten-part Tony Robbins seminar, in which Tony Robbins comes down from Heaven to guide a loser towards awakening the giant within. Now imagine the Tony Robbins character behaving like some kind of yakuza from a Japanese cartoon, and looking like a guest on Iron Chef. Throw in over-the-top screwball comedy, ala Third Rock from the Sun. Blend well, and top off with romance and heartfelt melodrama.

The only show I've seen that comes close to it is Shota no Sushi. Whereas Shota's Sushi was all about taking pride in your sushi, and being the best sushi chef you can be; Heaven Cannot Wait is about taking pride in yourself, and living life to the best of your ability.

Have already given my first mission. "If, by 4:00 PM, Friday, June 20th, you do not give up smoking, you will die."
