^I've been searching for a video, too. Now I think I'll just download the whole Kôhaku Show. Maybe a shorter better quality video will turn up, though. I watched it through streaming when it aired. The performance by HY was really good. In the background scenes from Nemuri Hime were playing and dram...

e09 wtf masakatsu cant see his family now? masakatsu himself need to grow some balls, and ask arikoto or the shogun.. he certainly still can serve the realm. no more secret need to be hide.. (im not concern about original manga storyline) I was also a bit dissatisfied with how that storyline was co...

Sometimes the man is the barren one, you know. ;) Of course, they had sex. After Arikoto joined the Ôoku they were together for one whole year, and that's when Kasuga decided it was enough and brought Sutezo into the game. Then when Iemitsu became pregnant from the other men in her harem, it was cle...

:goggle: I was thinking of your wish, when that happened. The last three weeks were a bit boring to me, not up to the strong 8 weeks prior. I just don't like the story around the hotel and Jun's parents are annoying to me. (I know, I've said it before) As it is half time soon, I hope there will be m...

Spoilers for Episode 8

Even though her motives are much clearer and it is obvious why Kasuga became the way she is now, I still think she was wrong in the way she did things. Going around and killing people, destroying the happiness of your child, there must have been other ways. Anyway, after episode 8 I'm very impresse...

It's amazing how much love Iemitsu still feels for Kasuga. I understand that she is the closest thing to a mother she had, but then she killed her mother. This is truly a love/hate relationship. Arikotos character as a monk really shines through in the way he handles Kasuga. He has so many reasons t...

The first movie is simply titled Oooku. 大奥 in japanese. On IMDB the subtitle is The Lady Shogun and her men, the japanese subtitle is 男女逆転 (Danjougyakuten) basically saying that this is the reverse harem story (Men and Womens roles interchanged).

I hope Tsuyoshi and Makoto end up together. :lol I think Itoshi-mama would die of shock if that were to happen, haha. :D There are a some critical views of japanese Asadora viewers that Jun as a main character is too loud and noisy, the drama is too weird and dark. Mostly older folks who have been ...
