To those who read the posts on Taiga Drama in English 3

Today I run over the main points of my posts concerning the series of Taiga Drama.

"Onna Joshu Naotora" is the series that is being broadcast this year. This is set in the 16th century Totomi, current western part of Shizuoka and describes the decline and the reconstruction of the Ii clan, especially the life of II Naotora who guards her adoptive son Toramatsu, later II Naomasa. At present, it describes the domestic administration of Naotora with her vassals and advisers rather than battles.

"Sanada Maru" was broadcast in 2016. It describes the life of SANADA Nobushige (Yukimura). He was born as the second son of Sanada Masayuki, becomes a hostage to the Uesugi clan and then serves TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi. After the Battle of Sekigahara, he is exiled to Kudoyama in Kii, current Wakayama but escapes there to participate in the Siege of Osaka. In the winter campain, he achieves a brilliant exploit by winning the Battle of Sanadamaru. Not only the description of Nobushige, but also that of Masayuki gained popularity.

"Furin Kazan" is the series broadcast in 2007. It is based on the novel written by Yasushi Inoue that features YAMAMOTO Kansuke, strategist of TAKEDA Shingen. As the series is full of battle scenes, sword fights, conspiracies and tough and manly characters, it is strongly supported by many men. At first 48 episodes were to be produced but one episode was added at the request of viewers.

Personally, "Furin Kazan" reminds me of "Sharpe" produced by ITV.
