Downtown cook Ginpei's prodigal son Mantaro returns after several years traveling. When he offers to help out in the restaurant, Ginpei notices that the guests eagerly consume Mantaro's pork cutlets but leave his untouched. Mantaro teaches his old-town friends and family the many tricks he has learned on his travels, before setting off to Osaka for a repeat performance. An anime spin-off of the 1973 Business Jump manga One-Chop Ajimei, by an artist known as "Big Jo," this kitchen tale was based on an original book by Mister Happy-creator "Gyujiro." The original manga was way ahead of Oishin-bo but only made it to anime in the wake of its successor-perhaps this subtle irony is what led the production staff to concentrate on a "new generation."
