"Seiten o Tsuke" is being shot now

"Seiten o Tsuke", a Taiga Drama series that is going to be broadcast from next February is being shot now. In the movie on the page below, SHIBUSAWA Eiichi and his cousin Kisaku meets HITOTSUBASHI Yoshinobu, later TOKUGAWA Toshinobu and his vassal HIRAOKA Enshirō.

(NHK ONLINE, in Japanese)

And the cast "Kamakura-dono no Jusan-nin", the series that is scheduled to be broadcast in 2022 was announced also. I'll write about it some other day.

I'll Stop Posting the Entries on "Kirin ga Kuru" and the Characters of the Series 11

This may be the last entry on "Kirin ga Kuru" in 2020. The broadcast of the series will be restarted on the 30th of August but I decided that I wouldn't watch it any more, however, I will keep on recording the series. But I'm not sure whether I will watch the videos or not. Like "Idaten", the series is disappointing for me also.

Ironically, thanks to the decision, I become to be interested in "Seiten o Tsuke", the series that will be broadcast in 2021 though I didn't expect it at first. Needless to say, I cannot tell the series attracts me or not unless I watch it in actuality - it is better to travel hopefully than to arrive. But now I expect the next year's series.

And the below are the cast of  "Kirin ga Kuru" that I haven't introduced yet.

KINOSHITA Tōkichirō or HASHIBA Hideyoshi (Kuranosuke Sasaki)

A son of a farmer of Owari. At first he plans to serve IMAGAWA Yoshimoto but then ODA Nobunaga. He beat Mitsuhide at the Battle of Yamazaki after the Honnoji Incident.


SAKUMA Nobumori (Nobuaki Kaneko*)

One of the vassals of Nobunaga


SHIBATA Katsuie (Masanobu Andō)

One of the vassals of Nobunaga


MŌRI Shinsuke (Tsubasa Imai)

One of the vassals of Nobunaga and beheads IMAGAWA Yoshimoto at the Battle of Okehazama.


Hōjin (Bengal)

A fictional figure. He is the man who tells Koma how to make a pill.


Genshin-ni (Kyoko Maya)

A grandmother of MATSUDAIRA Motoyasu (TOKUGAWA Ieyasu) and mother of O-Dai.


YAMAZAKI Yoshiie (Takaaki Enoki**)

One of the vassals of ASAKURA Yoshikage and kajin (waka poet).


(*) Kaneko appears in "Gunshi Kanbei" and acts KUSHIHASHI Sakyonosuke (Masakore), brother of Kanbei's wife Teru.
(**) Enoki appears in some Taiga Drama series and in "Taiheiki", he acts HINO Toshimoto, an aristocrat. The series is written by Shunsaku Ikehata who writes "Kirin ga Kuru"also but and I like it much better than this year's one.

The images are from the official website of "Kirin ga Kuru".

Seiten o Tsuke

The first cast of "Seiten o Tsukē", the Taiga Drama series that will be broadcast in 2021 was announced. It seems to be delayed because of the spread of COVID-19. The below is the cast  (in Japanese) on the official website of NHK.


Ryō Yoshizawa who features "Seiten o Tsuke" from NHK ONLINE

Ryō Yoshizawa plays the main character SHIBUSAWA Eiichi and his father Ichirōemon will be acted by Kaoru Kobayashi who plays the role of Nankei in "Onna Joshu Naotora". And Emi Wakui who appeares on some series as "Komyō ga Tsuji" and "Taira no Kiyomori" will act Ei, mother of Eiichi. 

On the other hand, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi who was formerly a member of SMAP and narrates "Bura Tamori" will act TOKUGAWA Yoshinobu. Kusanagi was cast as ENOMOTO Takeaki in "Shinsengumi!" in 2004 and it was his first appearance in Taiga Drama series.

However, I look forward to "Kamakura dono no 13 nin" that is to be broadcast in 2022 and read a book on its main character Hōjō Yoshitoki.
