Having seen 2004/Shinsensumi, I was able to notice Odagiri Joe/Saito Hajime connection to Niijima Jo early on, but Nakamura Shido as Sagawa Kanbei/Yae and Takimoto Sutesuke/Shinsengumi, I did not have a clue on that one...until the posting of side by side images here.

The actor for Saito Hajime isn't really actor but singer, he is the front man of Dragon Ash.
But he's son of actor Furuya Ikko.



Yae no Sakura filming was finished in Sep 30.

Since my local TV station is lagging by 6 or so episode... currently around episode 32 or so..

Not sure how much more "action" this one has in last 15 or so episodes of series.

Not that easy to write in action scenes in helping form a school. With that said, prioritization of a country's education system to me is a key component of development/modernization. (in any era)

Sure, natural resources, location, alliances and foes all play key roles in any country's development... but a strong education system that then develops a country's middle class cannot be underestimated.

Well she was a nurse in the Sino/Russo war so i imagine they will include that .

No pic of her handing the baton to Junichi Okada (Kuroda ) .That is usually a big photo op ,when a Taiga completes filming the lead actor hands the baton to the lead in the new Taiga .

Funny NHK still have not announced the 2015 Taiga ,it should have been announced in April/May of this year .could they be finally calling it a day ? .They really have not had good ratings since Atsuhime .

Eps 45 and 46 ...Someone named Tokie has caused scandal at the Mission (shriek !) by catting around ,as a result after a messy divorce Tokie gets the boot .
Yae decides to adopt Tokie's daughter but the "Lil tykes" heart remains closed to Yae .

Will Yae get the kid to open her heart? (of course she will, probably by ep 48 they will fling themselves into each others arms ,sobbing hysterically )

How quickly this went down the tubes from being really good to soap opera crap .

After 46 episodes you just have to finish it, huh? The stories are getting weaker and the daily dramas I've caught are overacted lately. Ah, at least my landlord here in Kamakura has oodles of jidaigeki. John

They should just move onto the next one being Sengoku best buddies (sigh !!!they had to scrap the Satsuma Taiga so the Koreans would not get upset ,amazing Koreans are more than happy to depict the Imjin War ,but Japanese cannot do the same .).

As it has been a whole year since Honnoji Temple was depicted ,may as well get on with it .

Well, hero worship of Admiral Yi is Korea's version of the 47 Ronin story. It just wouldn't be right if those darn Japanese came along and put their spin on it.

The Admiral sails back next year, played by Choi Min Sik in the film Myung Ryang ,its directed by the guy who did War Of The Arrows .

I would love to see a Japanese take on the Imjin war ,be fun watching the Royal Court on the run . Its a very weird PC situation ,its fine for the Koreans to depict either the Imjin War or the resistance in the early 20th century as an excuse for Japanese bashing ,yet it is off limits for the Japanese to depict the Imjin War .

I remember the Koreans would not let NHK film parts of Hojo Tokimune in Korea ,they were also upset with several scenes in the drama like the depiction of the Goryeo court .

The computer game company Creative Assembly came right out and said they wouldn't produce a Korean Invasion scenario for Total War: Shogun 2 because they considered it too politically sensitive and didn't want to offend anyone (although it didn't stop Sid Meier's Civ 5 from doing it, albeit poorly). The amount of angst produced by a 500 year old war tells me certain countries have a major inferiority complex...

While I pretty much agree with this, having lived in said country, I think it's only fair to point out that it's not purely about the 1590's--there was that whole 1895-1945 thing that was a...thing.

And would you look at that--me defending Korean national over-pride...

I think that's the 4th sign of the apocalypse. Shocked

I must admit this is one of my guilty pleasures ,probably the anthem like opening theme has a lot to do with it .

KBS Drama Seoul 1945 (2006)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9aeg09vDZQ

This sort of shocked me because it is a South Korean production that depicts the North in a positive light , No Japanese bashing in this just the Koreans who colluded .
The drama was subject to lawsuits when it aired as the surviving family members of several characters were not thrilled with the on screen depiction .

MBC has a drama about Su Baek Hang ,the Baekje Princess who went to Japan and became the wife of Emperor Keitai , So due to Koreans protesting the network changed the script leaving out all mention of her becoming a Japanese Empress and keeping her in Baekje .
Really stupid .

Eps 49 and 50 .

Yae's brother dies in ep 49

What is Haijme Saito still doing in this ?

Everyone ages except Yae .

Yae makes peace with Choshu leaders ,goes back to war as a nurse ,comes home with a truck load of medals .

Yes meets Saigo Tanamo (Toshiyuki Nishida .) again .

Mass flashbacks to earlier episodes .

Not a bad drama ,its strength is in the first 30 episodes and the odd episode after .
Its weakness is every Taiga Drama cliche thrown in .

Its safe to conclude the golden era of Taiga Drama's was from 1987 (Masamune ) through 97 (Mori Motonari ) and we will never see the like again .

NHK is trying to attract female viewers because more women watch TV than men.
Female viewers prefer lead character to be female and less battle.
