Ieyasu’s autocratic behavior and evil ambition to be the ruler finally puts Nobunaga in action! Who will conquer the school in the end?!
Powerless in every way and moreover, in the most perfect way. Franz Kafka, the great novelist widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature.
Yet given this stature, we find his life itself was more absurd than what was depicted in his novels. Few people know that he suffered from an “obsession with despair,” where he found everything in life to be hopeless. “Kafka’s Tokyo Despair Diary”is an inexplicable comedy that follows Kafka as he lives in Tokyo finding despair in various subjects such as “the need for approval on social media,” and “the practice of searching for a marriage partner.”
As Kafka is thoroughly overwhelmed by a feeling of despair, his courage and graceful manner in which he deals with it will no doubt give you hope in life.
This drama depicts the Battle of Sekigahara, the most famous battle in feudal Japan, set in a contemporary business environment. Following the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who ruled Japan, two rivals, Tokugawa Ieyasu and Ishida Mitsunari, fight to become the next leader of Japan. This rivalry could be a reflection of the factional rivalry and competition for promotion among modern Japanese office workers. This program recreates the Battle of Sekigahara as a drama about present-day businessmen.

Sometimes following her dreams means breaking the rules.
NHK's famed Taiga drama series continues with the historical tale of Japanese heroine, Yae Niijima (1845-1932). Since Yae was from the Aizu Domain, which included the present-day Fukushima Prefecture, it is hoped that this tale of triumph over hardship will inspire the people of Fukushima during their earthquake and tsunami recovery effort, and keep the nation focused on supporting them.
"Rules are rules" is what Yae Yamamoto (later Niijima) often hears in childhood, and it echoes throughout her life. But some rules don't accommodate an independent-minded woman. Always a tomboy at heart, the young gunslinger, Yae, leads 500 other women in the fight to defend the Aizu Domain during the Boshin War. While their efforts are in vain, her drive for success is undiminished, and she goes on to lead an unusual life for a woman of her time.
Calling on an inner strength after the destruction of her beloved Aizu, she starts the next chapter of her life with study in Kyoto. While there, she realizes the importance of women's education, and she and her husband, the famous educator Jo Niijima, establish a Christian university.
Finally, Yae feels the call to serve once again during the first Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War where she works as a front-line nurse -- until then, an unheard-of role for Japanese women. As Yae dedicates her life to assisting others, she blossoms into a role model for modern women everywhere.
