comment: its a 47 long episodes!,but the rating was ok up until now(currently airing until eps 30). i want to see this,cause many famous actors gathered here although as a guest star or the original casts.the main role is played by Satoshi tsumabuki.i like his drama with ou shibasaki (orange days) and their movie 'dororo'.i wait for the sequel of Dororo 2.but i dont know when.
add info for upcoming drama :'Jin'(no picture yet, start Oct '09)
synopsis:The story follows a brain surgeon named, Minakata Jin, who falls into a "time slip" that sends him back to Edo during the Bakumatsu era, the period that spelled the end of the shoguns' rule over Japan. There, Jin ends up using his 21st-century medical expertise to help the people, who are suffering from various epidemic illnesses from the time, with the help of the modern medical knowledge of his era.(this is quite interesting!!)
