Sazae San

Sazae San was a newspaper strip that ran in Japan from 1946 to 1973. It was created by Machiko Hasegawa. It was about a family living in post-war Japan. It was later turned into a TV cartoon starting 1969; it's still being made today, running longer than the strip it was based on.

Here are some strips from 1946. I translated the dialogues into English. Remember that the dialogue balloons are right-to-left, which is the standard in Japan.
