Ai and Koi

Jonathan Ross presents a series about Japanese film and television culture. He investigates the modern day meaning of Ai and Koi, or Love and Romance.

With a declining birthrate it would appear that love and romance are in trouble in contemporary Japan. Jonathan looks at the rise of the male host bar, the ever popular Tarakazuka theatre in which all the male leads are played by women, and the new craze amongst young girls for Yaoi manga - hardcore boy on boy love action.
