Synopsis
Matsukichi's father was a samurai and was killed by someone seeking vengeance. Matsukichi himself was almost killed as well, but he was rescued by Wasuke, the owner of the Kanten (Japanese gelatin) wholesale shop Ikawaya.

Abandoning the life of a samurai, Matsukichi works at Ikawaya as an apprentice, in order to repay Wasuke. The 2 silver kans used to ransom Matsukichi were actually intended for the rebuilding of the Tenmangu shrine, which had been destroyed by fire. The drama follows the life of Matsukichi, as he struggles in his new life as a merchant amidst bullying, love and challenges of the trade.

I couldn't get into it at the beginning and skipped 2 episodes (I was looking for Matsuoka Mayu, she appeared in episode 4). But I thought it was superb and really touching and absorbing after that. There's nothing very special about the story or the writing so it may be personal experience that elevated it to a great drama for me. But really good performances from everyone, especially Mayu of course and a great cameo from Kazama Shunsuke in episode 8. Only 9 episodes but it felt a lot longer than that, in a good way

A period drama and just like taigas the supporting cast was very good but Kento Hayashi in the lead as Matsukichi was almost as dull as the Kanten he sold.
