Benshi - Wikipedia

A fascinating aspect of Japanese culture I never knew about until I read the Wiki entry for Akira Kurosawa and found out that he worked as one. Basically Benshi were people who would narrate silent films and voice dialogue depicted onscreen for the deaf.
This book on the subject looks interesting too.
Just a little random neatness for a Tuesday.
