The 1998 NHK Taiga drama focuses on the life of Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the 15th and final ruler of the Tokugawa period. Born the seventh son of Lord Nariaki of Mito, Yoshinobu is named shogun when he is just 29 years old. With a wisdom and vision beyond his years, he tries to prolong the life of this 200-year-old dynasty which began with Ieyasu. However, he is unable to forestall the winds of revolution as clans in Choshu, Satsuma and Tosa, with the help of the Imperial Court, clamor for change.

Not the most interesting historical figure in Japanese history. And the actor that played him is not quite charismatic enough. I've watched every Taiga doramas since 1997. This is one of the weaker ones.

If ever a taiga could be described as average it's this one. Average script, average cast, just, , , average.

Very nice and convincing Yoshinobu played by Mokkun. He really shines with his subtle acting.
