This show was not one of the best shows ever, but it was quite interesting. This is the first historical drama I watch and I really enjoyed it. OK, maybe Nakama Yukie is not too credible, but the pace was correct and the history was nice. It reminded me to old legends, including the "magical" moments. I loved Tataoka Saki as Ookimi Kikoe, and it was good to see Tanihara Shosuke again, although by the end of the show I didn't quite like Asakura-dono's change of mind. Anyway, this show talks about determination, love and diplomacy, and it deals with the past from a present point of view. There are many things happening through the episodes, and although they were quie good and I just wanted to go on watching all of them, I felt really disappointed with the last episode: rushed and too short for my taste, it should have been like 1-1'5 hours long better. Anyway I just want to learn a bit more about Ryukyu-Okinawa history.

One of the biggest cheese fests I have ever seen. It was really hard to keep watching. Everything was overdone, the acting was horrible, and the pacing was all over the place and insane. However, largely because it was different to see a historical drama set in Okinawa, I stuck with it, and it definitely improves; the pacing becomes more reasonable, and there is an interesting story here, it's just a shame the delivery of it was such a mess.

The historical drama was filmed in Okinawa at the Shuri Castle in Naha. It was nice to see many of the Okinawan actors in this drama and Gackt was hilarious. It starts off slow, but becomes interesting and stayed true to the historical events that occured to the Ryukyu islands which eventually became the Okinawa that it is today.

Interesting and not a total disaster but I didn't enjoy the supernatural elements in this.Gackt was amusing in this.The Japanese audiences must have been thinking about the American bases in Okinawa in the episode where Perry demands a coaling station.

Words fail me in trying to describe how bad this drama is. Saying it is a complete mess seems inadequate. Just a truly, truly awful drama.

One word: cringeworthy.
