Sanada Maru

For your information, taiga drama is Japan’s NHK’s longest running series.
Ever since 1963, NHK released a 49 ~ 50 episodes of taiga drama every year.

Sanada Maru is NHK’s 55th taiga drama.
“Taiga drama” is a historical TV series. Although historical, a lot of them have been based on one specific era of Japan: Sengoku.
I consider myself a big fan of taiga drama and have reviewed some over the years.


Sanada Maru is about Sanada clan in mid-late Sengoku era and centers around Sanada Masayuki and his two sons.
The most distinguishable feature found in Sanada Maru is that this taiga drama is comical. Comedy and taiga drama have been water and oil. It never mixed too well. Although there have been funny kind of “what the” moments in previous taiga drama, those semi-comical moments never broke characters.

However, in Sanada Maru, there are comedy, real comedy. This is the first as far as I recall and the comical moments are done very well.
In other words, I really do like Sanada Maru. It is a refreshing break from what many outsiders consider “boring taiga drama”.

Komyo Ga Tsuji

This is a taiga drama from NHK, and I consider this one to be much better in all aspects as a taiga drama.

This is a 49-episode, each episode bears 50 minutes. This series was aired in 2006 to 2007.

The title can have many meanings but I'd personally translate it as "Crossroads of one's life".

Before reading this review, be forewarned that this is a really LONG review. Expect to spend up to an hour just reading it.
