NHK's 56th taiga drama series.
During the Sengoku period, the Ii family governs the Totomi region. Due to many past wars, there are no more male successors left to become a lord. Naotora Ii, the only daughter of the lord, is next in line. Although she will face a difficult period, the constant love from her fiance, whom she became engaged with at a young age, helps her to keep moving forward.

    So glad someone's finally subbing it. I'll check back when it reaches the halfway point.

    I like Shibasaki Kou a lot especially as Kichou in Nobunaga Concerto. However I think they should have chosen someone like Ishihara Satomi (ironically Naotora in Samurai Warriors is designed after Ishihara). Shibasaki does not fit the motherly Naotora especially since a certain future red clad Samurai is now part of the main cast.

    I like the cast though.
    My favorite is Nanao as Sena/Tsukiyama. Her scenes with Takechiyo/Ieyasu are so entertaining and I am curious how they will depict her plot...

    I enjoy Naotora way more than Sanadamaru.

    They did such a great job casting the child actors.

      Especially for Sena/Tsukiyama. The little girl really looks like Nanao XD.

      They were all amazing. I got a bit sad when the childhood part ended, I'd grown attached!

      Honestly, they really did. I think the one person I feel is miscasted is the female lead as a adult - so far but everything else is awesome.

    Watched the 3 episodes that have been subbed so far and it feels like a great drama.

    The synopsis got my attention and the first episode got me hooked. I love that little girl and her spirit.

    This is a long one. I think I'll wait it out and see if someone will hardsub it later on. So far, 3 eps softsubbed and 9 episodes out. There's a long way to go and I'd rather marathon this with the hardsubs.

    I'm starting to giving up hope on seeing this drama subbed :(

      Please don't! The reason I'm so optimistic is because sometimes it takes maybe months after it started airing until subbers decide to pick up a taiga drama. At least that was the case with taiga dramas of the last two years, Sanadamaru and Hana Moyu. And it's a drama with Shibasaki Kou as a lead we're talking about :)

    This question isn't really relevant to the plot, but I'm a bit surprised as to why her surname would be 'li'? Might it just be phonetically sounding like 'li'? Just very curious, (I'm not as well versed in Japanese as others might be here, sorry beforehand to anyone offended by that question.)
