Japanorama is a series of documentaries presented by Jonathan Ross, explore the various facets of popular culture and trends of today’s Japan.

Japanorama Each episode has a theme around which Jonathan Ross presents cultural phenomena, movies, music and art that exemplify facets of Japan. The series is colorful in both its creative use of materials and their use of bright colors that helps accent the action on screen rather than distract from it. The subjects were separated by striking that often feature the work of Junko Mizuno. Ross hosts each episode so bright and stylized costumes that might have been stolen from an anime character.

Fans have credited the series for the care that both Ross and the BBC has put in production. It took time to delve into each issue, and Ross was able to interview various figures of culture and industry, including Hayao Miyazaki, Mamoru Oshii, Takashi Murakami, Takashi Miike and Takeshi Kitano.

Japanorama consists of three series, each with six episodes (some episodes may be omitted from the list below). The first series was shown on BBC Choice in 2002, while the number two and three were shown on BBC Three in 2006 and 2007, respectively. (Excerpt from en.wikipedia.org)
