We're already excited about Netflix showing Evangelion next year, but we've now got another reason to be excited for 2019. Tidying Up with Marie Kondo is a new Netflix Original show and will be released globally from Tuesday 1st January 2019. The 8 episode series will focus on people who are at a cross road in their lives and need a bit of Marie Kondo's tidying magic to help them get by.
Marie Kondo, who is also known as Kon Mari is a Japanese tidying expert. Her best selling books include The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, Spark Joy: An Illustrated Guide to the Japanese Art of Tidying, plus a manga The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story, which is ideal for those who prefer a manga version of something!
By de-cluttering your life you can make it better. She's coined the phrase Spark Joy and her philosophy is about more that just getting rid of junk. In a commercial age where it's all about buying more stuff, Marie Kondo is more about keeping things that have utility and bring you joy. In the past she's had a special on NHK World where she visited people and helped them out, we expect this new series to have a similar format.
If you're curious to know more about her work the NY Times have an interesting article.
You can order her books from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
Press release as follows:
Tidying Up with Marie Kondo
In the eight-episode series, Marie Kondo guides people who are at a crossroads, but willing to tackle the clutter holding them back to spark joy in their homes and transform their lives in emotional and surprising ways.
Tidying Up with Marie Kondo follows a loving family of four who have relocated to a Los Angeles apartment from a four-bedroom home in Michigan; a recently widowed woman grappling with how to let go of her beloved late husband's' possession, but not his memory; a young couple living in West Hollywood who are ready to leave their college-style of living behind; as well as soon-to-be parents who realize it's time to let go of the past to pave way for their future family.
