First episode available now

The opening episode of The Great Passage is being simulcast on Amazon Video here, with the first episode available as of writing.

Haruko Kumota (Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū original manga creator) is in charge of the original character designs for the series.

Miura's original novel revolves around Mitsuya Majime and Masashi Nishioka. Mitsuya is a serious man who is a poor talker, and Masashi is a sociable man. The novels follow their friendship, determination, and passion as they work together to publish a new dictionary titled "The Great Passage" (Daitokai).

The novel originally shipped in 2011, and it inspired an award-winning live-action film directed by Yuya Ishii that opened in Japan in 2013. The film won the Japan Academy Prize for Picture of the Year in 2013.
