So the Tokyo TV New Year Drama will be another rendition of Byyakotai who will also feature in next years Taiga and were last seen in 07 .
Kinja Kitaoji and Hitomi Kuroki will star and it will feature the usual suspects like Shinsengumi .

However after muffling my groans i noticed the writer is James Miki creator of Aoi Tokugawa Sandai as well as the Yoshimune and Masamune Taiga's .Given the mans track record this should be worth giving a chance even if the subject matter is up there with Chushingura and Ryoma .

Now here is a surprise considering NHK managed to create a Taiga that that outdid Gou in the low ratings sweepstakes being Kiyomori .
The NHK New Years Drama is Sakanoue No Tamuramaro .
This was a shock to me i would have thought anything close to the Heian era would be avoided .

And look what NHK are airing now

That's a surprise--the 2007 remake of Byakkotai has to still be pretty fresh in people's minds. That one was a little heavy on the saccharine sentimentality for my taste.

I wonder if this has to do with trying to lift the spirits of the earthquake-hit areas; seems an awful lot of Boshin considering the 2013 Taiga. Hope they do the subject matter realistic justice.

That weren't no tea party . . .

That is what i was thinking the last version was so recent still the writer James Miki is the reason to check it out .

Tokyo TV New Year Drama is 7 hours long.(It used to be 12 hours)
I am so excited to see 7 hours Byakkotai.

The last scene, Tenzen and Chiharu together in snow was touching.

The NHK Drama has been retitled as Kita No Eiyuu Ateruiden and i just did a thread for it hoping someone will watch and give us a thumbs up or down .

Casting for the new "Byakkotai" looks good--I like that Hijikata seems to be a real ruffian! Also, appears they explore in more depth the relationship between Saigo Tanomo and Katamori.

Looking forward to this!

Many thanks for posting the link.

Kishitani Goro is awesome as a crazy Yakuza, but Hijikata Toshizo..?

According to one of our favorite authors Hijikata may not have been far removed from a "crazed yakuza" considering the "will to power " and a "propensity to kill ".

If anyone in Japan can record the Tamuramaro for me, I'd be VERY grateful. Smile

Trailer for Byakotai and it looks decent .

http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp.e.ck.hp.transer.com/byakotai/story/#content_right

I want to get a copy of the Tamuramaro drama as well ,it is interesting that he is being depicted as the bad guy so to speak .
