Is there some top secret place to find these online now that they don't seem to be getting added to D-Addicts any more with English subs?

This is the first new Taiga I've wanted to see in a couple ...

State of War rocks! One of the best books I have read so far. Highly recommended.

Agreed. Fascinating read, and I've gone through it cover-to-cover more times than I can recall.

Naomasa got that "Red Devil" thing from Yamagata Masakage, no?

He got the idea of equipping his soliders in all-red from Yamagata Masakage, yes.

I have Furin Kazan on my PC but only sat through a few episodes. Komyo ga Tsuji is my favourite out of the ones I've seen, though I'm enjoying Mori Motonari as well.

I think the story of Hachimantarō would make a pretty neat Taiga drama.

Awesome.

Yeah, Yoshitsune wasn't that long ago, but the early years of Kiyomori should make for an interesting story.

Just watched Third Shadow. Really, really, really good. Much darker than Kurosawa's Kagemusha, that's for sure.

I also wasn't a fan of Totman's bio of Ieyasu.

Yeah, I agree. It's got some good information in there but, from memory, it jumps around quite a bit. Been awhile since I read through it though.

Watched Akahige last weekend. It's gonna be a Kurosawa movie weekend coming up. Smile

Each time I watch Akahige I enjoy it more and more. It might be my favourite Kurosawa movie.

Well, maybe Turnbull's new release, Hatamoto: Samurai Horse and Foot Guards 1540-1724will shed some light on all of this. Rolling Eyes Don't hold your breath.

1) Hardly anyone does straight-up Japanese military history.

Indeed, which is a damn shame for those of us who can't read Japanese.

2) The one guy who did (Turnbull) missed it.
