There is a Japanese drama I've been trying to find called The Ugly Duckling (Minikui ahiru no ko)(1996). I'm trying to find it in just about any form; DVD, torrent, VHS, laserdisc, whatever. Google has failed me, however, and I was hoping that someone might have a link to a site that will help me find this.

(really late)ETA: To be more specific, what I'm looking for is a tv drama about an elementary school teacher who moves to Tokyo from Hokkaido. This wiki seems to be the only source of info I can find about the show, and it doesn't say much. Even the link at the bottom to Fuji TV leads to a 'not found' page on the Fuji TV site.

It's a region 2 DVD but you can bypass that on your PC with a little help from the interwebs. The listing for the product lists the audio track as available in English. Whether this is true, I don't know.

I meant to edit my post to be more specific, but my internet went down for 2 days :( . Thank you both for your help. Unfortunately, paskil, that is a movie based on the actual story The Ugly Duckling. What I am looking for is a tv show (I think it just ran for 1 season), a drama about an elementary school teacher who moved to Tokyo. I honestly can't believe that there would be no copy of it anywhere on the internet, it was a good show.

Thank you both for your efforts, though.
