I have the ypung Ieyasu film. It is a great flick in my opinion. The relationship with his mother Odai no Kata is heartbreaking at times.

It would not surprise me at all. Imagawa Yoshimoto had his eyebrows painted to look like a Kyoto aristocrat. Nobunaga had his eyebrows painted for the 1581 Kyoto parade. It would have been probably ...

Would love to read about Nobunaga and Yoshiaki on Nijo Castle. By the way, Nobunaga historian Taniguchi Katsuhiro has a new book out on the relationship between Nobunaga and Ashikaga Yoshiaki.

Reading Saga of the Samurai volume 2 on Takeda Nobutora. On page 52, the horse armor was rarely used for war and was reserved for military parades.

From all my sources that I have, it looks like Hideyoshi, Mitsuhide, and Ikeda Katsumasa (from Settsu with 3,000 men) led the rear guard. Tatsunoshi, it always confusing. LOL

There might be plans for a Nobunaga movie in 2017. Why 2017 you ask? 2017 would be the 450th anniversary of the founding of Gifu by Nobunaga.
