Mitsuya Majime works at Genbu Shobou Publishers. In the sales department, Majime, who sees words in a different way from others, is treated like a weirdo - but then, he is welcomed into the dictionary editing department. There, he becomes one of the members who will put together the new dictionary, ‘Daitokai’ (The Great Passage.)
There’s a veteran editor who’s nearing retirement age, an elderly scholar who has devoted his life to researching the Japanese language, a flashy guy who starts to feel love towards dictionaries, and a girl he was destined to meet.
Surrounded by these individuals, Majime immerses himself in the world of dictionaries. Through the bonds we call words, their lives begin to softly knit together.
However, this is a dictionary editing departments filled with issues. Will they be able to complete the Daitokai in the end?
Three Episode Impression
Characters & Voice Actors List
Voice Actor: Takahiro Sakurai
Serious and quiet. A Genbu Shobou employee, he is headhunted from his idle position in the sales department as a star of hope who could lead the next generation of the dictionary editing department. He becomes the helmsman for the Daitokai dictionary, and decides to dedicate his life to making dictionaries. He has absolutely no other skills other than making dictionaries.
Voice Actor: Hiroshi Kamiya
Sociable and flashy. Seriously flashy. Just as he starts to lean towards feeling passionate about making dictionaries (possibly due to Majime’s influence?) he’s moved to another department. Although tragically separated, he goes all-out in showing off his social skills, and still plays a part or two in the publication of Daitokai. His flashiness remains unchanged.
Voice Actor: Maaya Sakamoto
A chef in training and the granddaughter of the landlord of Majime’s boarding house, granny Take. She ends up moving into the same boarding house and develops an interest in Majime.
Voice Actor: Tetsuo Kaneo
A member of the dictionary editing department at Genbu Shobou. With his retirement approaching and the compilation of the Daitokai not yet complete, he rushes to find a successor. A man who has dedicated his life to creating dictionaries.
Voice Actor: Mugihito
An aged Japanese linguistics scholar and the supervising director of the Daitokai. Alongside Araki, he has been involved in the planning and editing of many different dictionaries. A man of conviction who is committed to creating the ideal Daitokai, wanting to make it a new generation of dictionary.
Voice Actor: Yoshiko Sakakibara
A contracted worker in the dictionary editing department at Genbu Shobou. An unsung hero that single-handedly takes on all of the department’s clerical work.
