Next morning of the televising, natto vanished all over Japan. Many people especially women seized upon the diet! The cases in which natto was usually sold at any stores had been empty for about two weeks since the TV program was telecasted.

     Those people who were able to get natto stirred it dreaming their ideal figure, and those who couldn’t get any natto looked about for one desperately. Incidentally I belonged to the latter…

The TV production made up a likely story for getting good audience rating. The TV program finished and the people concerned were dismissed because of the deplorable affair.
