Most Taiga dramas suffer the problem of going through lots of ups and downs. Not here though, the first half is entirely amazing, then the second half is a straight drop off a cliff. I absolutely hated the second half, to the exact same extent that I loved the first. I was even largely prepared for it, because I had read up a bit on the real life character of Yae. "Oh no! She converts to Christianity. This is going to suck." I thought, and boy did it ever. I admit that it's reality, and can't be helped but to show it, but they can decide how to portray it, and how much time and focus to spend on it. We got "Yes, Jesus loves me" over and over again. Even the few political/historical events that do show up in this half are dealt with as briefly as possible, so as to not interrupt our precious 25 episode hymn recital.

So I loved this, and then I despised this, and then we get to the final episode...And it was awesome! Everything this drama should have been always. So I almost forgive it, !!!BUT!!! I find it actually very insulting. Here we have amazing stuff happening, war with China, Yae as a nurse in the Red Cross, Yae learning the tea ceremony, reunions with old friends, everybody is dying, plans to restore the honor of Aizu. This stuff should have been 15 episodes long, and that stupid Jesus school nonsense cut that amount. The entire Sino-Japanese war was no longer than any one of the hundred "Jesus loves me" songs. Just to prove my point, in the last few episodes there were quite a lot of flashbacks, all of them were from the first half when this show was great.

So I really don't know how to feel about this as a whole. There was so much greatness, but equal amounts of crap that erased it all. I know one thing; I will never watch it again.

A mixed bag. The first half covering events leading up to and including the Boshin War was great. The second half which dealt with creating the schools was some of the most boring stuff I've ever seen.

Got alot better from episode 34 when Odagiri Joe started becoming more important. Far too much emphasis and flash backs on the boshin war and not enough on education.
