YMMV: Hashimoto-san

  • Fair for Its Day: The series may feel painfully stereotyped now, but for its time, it was a major advance to have Japanese characters be the focus of an American film series so relatively soon after the bitter fight of World War II.
  • Values Dissonance: That said, the painfully stereotyped depiction of Japanese characters with their broken English and traditional dress in modern times guarantees the series would never be circulated commercially again today.
