Synopsis
It is the late Edo period. Futaboshi Hikoma, the Hirado domain's astronomer, is a rather eccentric person whose only interests are the stars and sea. A beautiful bride Orie comes to him and Hikoma vows to himself to cherish her in his lifetime. However, in less than a month, his new wife disappears without a reason from this dreamlike married life. In truth, Orie is a female ninja that the shogunate has sent because of its suspicions about the domain's illegal trading and activities. The shogunate plots to punish and destroy the Hirado domain in a warning to various domains in the west. Not knowing this, Hikoma goes to Edo in search of his wife. He is introduced to Matsuura Seizan, the former feudal lord of the Hirado domain, by his old friend Senemon, but is told by Seizan that he will slay Orie if she appears. Hikoma declares that he will be his wife's shield if Seizan insists on snatching her away. In order to find Orie, Hikoma becomes an instructor at an elementary school and meets a boy called Tarokichi.

The synopsis shown is for 'Tsuma wa Kunoichi' which aired Spring of 2013. 'Tsuma wa Kunoichi - Saishusho' is the follow-up drama. It picks up where the original left off. Ichikawa is great as Futabsohi, the samurai more interested in astronomy and desperately trying to find his wife Orie. There's enough flashbacks that you could probably watch this one and get most of it but you're better off watching both. Good acting, interesting plot, suitably menacing bad guys and some well staged fight scenes. I liked them both.

More of the same. That is, a decent love story with an incredibly stupid plot, and cringe worthy fight scenes. It is a nice happy ending to the series, but really this could have been condensed into one final episode or special.
