“NON” Drama Appearance and Reading on NHK E’s “Kowai Ehon”!

“NON” makes an appearance and reading on NHK E drama “Kowai Ehon” (Scary Picture Book)!

Popular authors who are active on the frontlines team up with talented painters to bring you picture books with scary stories that hit close to home and send shivers down your spine and mysterious stories that are gaining popularity.

This program brings the picture books to animation. The recitation part is a live-action film set in a ryokan (old-fashioned inn) or a Western-style building that seems to have come out of the picture. Performing an encounter with the picture book, it invites viewers into a world of horror.

Please, spend a night of slight abundant horror as recitation, animation, and drama become one.

Date : November 1st (Sun) 11:00pm-11:30pm broadcast (The first story of the 3)
