Kiyo is a lady-in-waiting who serves the Asano family’s Edo mansion in the Genroku Period. She has fallen in love with Isogai Jurozaiemon, a samurai of the Ako domain. Kiyo sets her mind to overcome the difference in social status and live for love. But at that moment, bloodshed occurs when Asano Naganori, the young lord of the Ako domain, attacks the master of ceremonies, Kira Yoshinaka, inside Edo Castle. This incident sets Kiyo’s destiny in motion as the 48th “loyal vassal” unable to participate in the raid with Jurozaemon and the rest of the 47 lordless Ako samurai. After they pull off the raid on Kira’s residence, Kiyo’s second life begins. She gets close to a family positioned to accede to the shogunate and eventually enters the inner palace of Edo Castle with the aim of restoring the Asano family. Edit Translation

I started watching this drama more than 6 months ago - it was different from many historical dramas and focused on a female lead during the period Samurai's reigned in Japan -- definitely unique.  However, subbing was so slow I became frustrated and gave it up -- but checked weekly to see if any progress in the area of subbing.   Finally, in 2018 my dream came true - all 20 episodes were subbed.  I watched without subs having no idea what was going on but the story just seemed appealing.   The story -  very unique and it spans a significant portion of the female leads younger life-- every emotion you can name can be attributed to her but the drama really focuses on "clan loyalty."     Once you start watching you can't stop -- in the end -- I felt a lingering sadness for this character.   This is not an action drama but a romantic story that moves your heart.  In the end, I researched the purposes of a Shogun and the governmental system during the 17th century.  It is best to marathon if possible because there are so many characters and week by week it is easy to forget their role in the drama ---  worth every minute watching and felt this should have been translated immediately and shared on many more streaming sites.  One of the top historical dramas with a focus on a woman -- a capable one.
