One of the best taiga doramas ever. Excellent cast with Sorimachi a very convincing Oda Nobunaga and Nanako as a great Matsu. Toshiaki Tarasawa played the Toshiie character with passion. The two husband/wife on screen duo had great chemistry. Excellent storyline and this period of Japanese history, Sengoku Jidai, is one of the most interesting. Great historical characters from war books coming to life before your very eyes. You got Hideyoshi, Tokugawa, Date Masumune, etc. Doesn't get much better than that for an Asian history buff like me. Like I said, a gorgeous cast. A lot of eye candy for both sexes. Beautiful music. So impressive that I bought the CD soundtrack from a local japantown. Hard to find, but worth the get.
This Taiga drama is very hard to find. But there is one seller who is selling it on Ebay, gingertoys2. They're dvdrs and they're good quality. I highly recommend this title. It will be worth your time.

In my feeling the best Taiga Drama in the past seven years. The cast for the main characters is excellent and very convincing. Same goes for the historical plot line. In the smaller roles you got to love Matsudaira Ken as "Oyaji" Shibata Gonroku.
Aside from this I also enjoyed Musashi and Genroku Ryouran (Chushingura)
The currently running Koumyou ga Tsuji (or Komyo ga tsuji) might come close ...

Pretty cool.It teaches viewers about the Sengoku Jidai that isn't well known outside of Japan.Maeda Toshiie's undying loyalty to the great Oda Nobunaga was clearly shown throughout the show.He being the main character of the show is acceptable.And just simply look at the number of big name artistes in the show!!!No wonder it's just that good!

Nanako is in it enuff said! Interesting Taiga drama - I had no idea about the strong bond between Toshiie Maeda and his wife Matsu. History tends to focus more on Hideyoshi and Oda Nobunaga and of course Tokugawa Ieyasu, so it was treat to learn more about the lesser known vassal.

My first ever Taiga Drama.... It was so great... I got so confused with the characters though.. Although the show explained who was who but the names were always blocked by the chinese subs. Anyways.. because of this, I became more and more interested in Japanese history.....

Very interesting view of the transition from Nobunaga to Toyotomi to Tokugawa from the eyes of Maeda Toshiie and his wife, two powerful political figures of the Warring States period. I think it enhanced my understanding of the historical events quite a bit.

I give this and 8 because it's good and I like it but I couldn't finish it..not because it's bad..it's because theres so many names and stuff that I get confused and there's so many episodes! Matsushima Nanako is awesome!

Good historical drama. I've only seen a few episodes so far, but have enjoyed them thoroughly. Love the costumes, and the fact that this historical piece has more than one or two women in it!

Watched like 2 episodes... does this count? LOL... I've never seen jdrama taken place before the 20th century, so it was interesting to see the wardrobe and wigs they wore.

Great Taiga Drama. The star-stub cast really does deliver and much more. Gripping story line, I finished watching it in 5 days! All 49 episodes. Highly recommended!

Is it an historical drama or a love story? It's both! And it works on both levels. If you're only able to watch one taiga in your life, this is the one to watch.

Great dramatization of lesser known figures from the end of the sengoku-jidai, although Hideyoshi and his wife Onene are prominent.

It is quite involved for my taste. Tons of famous people in this series. Heck, it has Sakai Noriko, so you can't go wrong!!!!
