J-Drama: 幕末の名奉行・小栗上野介 (Oguri, the Famous Magistrate of Late Edo Era)


[Full Japanese title: またも辞めたか亭主殿〜幕末の名奉行・小栗上野介
Full English title: Another Resignation, My Husband: Oguri, the Famous Magistrate of Late Edo Era
—ccwf]

Another Resignation, My Husband: Oguri, the Famous Magistrate of Late Edo Era


Airing Dates: 2/7, 2/14
Duration: 2 episodes
Classification: Taiga Historical Drama

2/07/04, Episode 1

It was a nice debut episode. It was interesting for me because I love Japanese history, but I can tell that for people who have no idea what was happening at this time (the opening of Japan, cautiously approaching the foreign powers) it would be like undecipherable.

But I'm sure you saw some familiar faces; Chikako from Younger Man was the wife, she's a hottie, espcially when she's walking with her umbrella away from Katsu, who I hate by the way. He has like six mistresses, and a wife who is bored. I'm glad he lost his job as foreign magistrate.

It was funny how Mr. Ogura kept losing his job as magistrate and gaining it back again. It was boring at first, but then good. I liked the snowing scene.

I hope that the shipyard will work out. Next week is the last episode!

NEXT TIME TO AIR: February 14, 2004; Episode 2, Final Episode

Try finding one thing that is not scary about Azusa.

I finally watched the finalé. Below is a bust of the real Oguri from this Yokusuka City page.

Here's some more info on Oguri.

Thanks for the links, ccwf.

I hear that Oguri is revered in Japan as another Musashi or Kamikaze warrior. He did play a pivotal role in modernizing Japan though, as proved by the drama.
