My first taiga drama and I must say Ryoma Den was very good! I knew of the character from Jin, but here the story is all about the early life and eventually death of Ryoma. I agree with what some have said here in that Fukuyama Masaharu's range as a actor really didn't do any justice to this real life hero. A stronger lead actor with an acting range that could show some true emotional range would have really lifted this taiga to another level!
Still this is a very good drama about the real and incredible life of Sakamoto Ryoma. He was a true visionary and foresaw change and that modernization of Japan was much needed. My first Taiga and definately won't be my last.... I'm hooked!

Another case of a "star" in the lead instead of a real actor. This taiga may be remembered as the "great actresses" taiga. In addition to Yoko Maki, you've got Mitsuko Baisho, Shinobu Terajima, Kimiko Yo, and Aoi Yu all giving great performances.
Also special mention to Nao Omori as Takechi Hanpeita, Munetaka Aoki as Shojiro Goto, and Taizo Harada as Kondo Isami.

I've only seen the first 2 episodes but it just blew me away. The Ryouma here is a bit different but I still like him (maybe I even like this Ryouma better than the real one! @_@) I can't wait to see all the other episodes.

Just amazing! great cast, great acting, fukuyama is great as Ryoma. The fact that Iwasaki Yataro narrates the story is a very good point.

So far I think I like it a little better than Atsuhime, but like all taiga dramas, it's a little slow at times.
