Synopsis

The 46th Historical Drama is a life story of Yamamoto Kansuke, a lonely genius of strategy at the Age of the Civil War in the 16th century. Kansuke works under Takeda Shingen and pursues his dream of unifying the whole country through aiding the warlord of Kai. At the same time, Kansuke supports Shingen's concubine Yu from his selfless affection for the woman who hates but eventually loves the warlord who killed her father and family. With the aid of Kansuke's strategies, Shingen expands his power northward, where he is destined to fight with Kenshin Uesugi, the warlord of Echigo. The drama portrays how those who fight for their dreams face their destinies in the turbulent age.

Notes

  • 風林火山 (fuu-rin-ka-zan, where fuu=wind, rin=woods, ka=fire, zan=mountain): The original line of this four-character-idiom comes from a battle strategy from centuries ago and goes as follows: as swift as the wind, as quiet as the woods, as fierce as the fire, as strong as the mountain. The sentence goes on as an action agenda for victory in war/battles, basically telling that the key to victory is to rightly judge the situation and take appropriate action at the right time. Four kanji symbolizing the phrase are taken out and combined for this idiom. -- jmode.com
