I'm excited for the episode that Tom Cruise shows up to lead them to victory and fall in love with Yae.

After having opened the New Year's Gifts, it appears that Yae is already enjoying the 'media darling' status and high profile that a Taiga Drama grants:



War Game in Japanese History #16, the Aizu-Boshin War. That of course is Yae with her famous Spencer repeating carbine (most sources have her as possessing a Spencer rifle, but the firearm pictured is a carbine).

With her is Nagano Takeko, another woman who fought in defense of Aizu. She was leader of the Jōshitai, the unsanctioned Women's Army (well known for their 'sword dance' Just Kidding ). No doubt she'll be a big part of the Taiga as well.

And rounding out our band is 'Bishop' Matsudaira Katamori with what appears to be the Byakkotai (the suicide-prone boys of the White Tigers) in the upper left corner.

The first part "ho hum " will be dedicated to the rivalry between Yae and Takeko as they try and outdo each other in being butch .

I am so thrilled i cannot contain myself .

Certainly not. The first part will show Yae as a precocious, rebellious, and spunky child, questioning the values of her day and smarting off to all the adults around her. The episode after that will switch to an actress in her twenties playing a six year old Yae as she decides to pursue her dream of a Japan where everyone is equal, there is no conflict, and can live in happiness. But this can only be attained by regretfully kicking the ass of everyone who doesn't share this grand vision.

Isn't that how ALL the Taiga dramas start?

"Ha Ha" that is great Tat's and so true .
What we need now is a Taiga where all these people with a "great vision " of Japan can duke it out .
We can have mixed groups and the winner gets to set Japan on a course to greatness (Until they are suddenly murdered by the current
Taiga subject who also has a "great vision " but differing from the winner of our "future of Japan !"debate/slugfest .).

Here are some new trailers

http://aramatheydidnt.livejournal.com/4545054.html

And an extended version of the main theme by Ryuichi Sakamoto .

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgwMfSTfWvU

Look at the bright side we actually have a Bakumatsu drama without Sakamoto or The Shinsengumi (so far though Hijikata was meant to be in it but did not make the final cut) .

The scene of Battle of Gettysburg in the first episode was filmed in the same place as the movie Lincoln was filmed.

I second that, being an old Kyotoite. It makes a change to get the Aizu view, and I think the casting is pretty good, too.

Plus, that's a really cool dojo that Yae's family has, although I'm not sure of its historical accuracy... other details of bushi life seem to have been quite well researched. And it's good to see reasonably well presented spear work.

Last week's episode #25, Sat-Cho broke through Juroku bridge.
Next week may be climax of this series.


There was separation of Hijikata and Saito.

You Tube runs the digest every week on the NHK channel and you are right it looks like after 26 well probably around 28 the series will have her meeting Nishima and becoming a nurse ,still i really liked the first 26 eps and having the Aizu POV is a nice change .

What was Hijikata still doing at Aizu ?.I thought he left to join Otori and Enemoto before the fighting started .I like the guy who plays Saito .

Hijikata and Saito together in Inawashiro is historically accurate.

Thanks for the info shikisoku , anyway at what point in the fighting did Hijikata leave? or was he still around at the fall of Aizu ?.

Interesting as there are conflicting reports on Hijikata in English of course , The Tokyo Tv Byakkotai also has Hijikata in the fighting .

Just trying to figure out when and why he left ? ,as he seemed the type to stay until the end unless he was under Otori's command and was ordered to leave .

Hijikata left Aizu a day after fall of Inawashiro castle.
He was going to call for reinforcements to Shonai-han but Yonezawa-han didn't allow him to pass, then he headed to Sendai where Enomoto was.

Great pics Shikisoku ,looks like the fighting continues in Ep 28 ,so we would be safe in saying the first 30 episodes are really good .

The Joshitai scenes are really moving ,unless you are Satcho fan or an incredibly one sided author who thinks they probably deserved it for daring to resist the anointed ones .
So in Ep 28 Katamori surrenders and we have 22 episodes to go .
If NHK were smart they would send Yae to Goryokaku ,than a few years on she could be a nurse in the Senian War and than fast track to the Sino Russo War (of course she was not at Goryokaku or in the Senian War but its a drama .)but i fear she will meet Nijima and coo "sweet nothings" for the next 22 episodes .
