pimping: tenchijin

been trying to poke at fic but to no avail.

so instead, have a post about Tenchijin, the newest NHK Taiga drama. Man. Okay so basically I saw this on someone's LJ and freaked out because Tenchijin is about NAOE KANETSUGU which is kind of random but it made me unbelievably excited. My main exposure to Kanetsugu is, of course, from Samurai Warriors 2, and I have harbored a shameful love for him since I... am a very bad person. Let's leave it at that. I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT

Also admittedly, part of the reason why I'm watching it is for Shirota Yu, yes, that Shirota Yu. Yes, I feel bad. But I'm 17 episodes in and Yukimura hasn't even shown up yet so I feel a tiny bit better.

Anyway, it shows Kanetsugu (Tsumabuki Satoshi *_*) from his BAAABY DAYS as Yoroku (and his early love of justice and Uesugi Kenshin (Lord Terutora, before his name change))

YOROKU IS THE BIG DIPPER TO KIHEIJI'S NORTH STAR, which is to say Kanetsugu loev Kagekatsu even if Hideyoshi was gonna kill him.

My only issue of course, is that, while the episodes are being broadcast subbed wherever you can get TV Tokyo in America and Canada, I can't get TV Tokyo here, and people were being douches around when EPISODE 5 CAME OUT SUBBED and now D-Addicts and Koala Fansubs aren't releasing it anymore so I am stuck downloading raws every week :[ Not that I don't like raws but I would love to know wtf is going on now, rather than relying on my incredibly basic japanese language and history knowledge. Okay maybe someone else has picked it up, I see up to episode 7 now! YAY. I am RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED AGAIN.

To sum up: Honnoji hasn't burnt yet, since Oda Nobunaga (who is played by the very hot Kikkawa Koji) isn't dead yet so I know I won't see Yukimura for an AGE!!!! Fucking Mitsuhide, hurry the hell up. (There are 49 episodes slated, AFAIK.)

Also Masamune's in it, I'm only somewhat looking forward to that, I have no idea why.

Anyway. I just wanted to talk about it, idk if anyone is interested but it is really interesting to know that Kanetsugu has a really bad hat in all versions of history. Torrents are here!

Ohh, it's subbed now? I didn't now you knew Japanese. It's too difficult for me to understand raw that well, so I stopped watching it in anticipation of subs.

Dude, with that hat that Kanetsugu historically has, it would be a crime to NOT portray him with a weird hat? I mean, in the drama, that is his real helmet, you can see it in the museum. XD

Hey, if you believe in love!

Well, a lot of the other hats of the period... well, what can one say about the Sengoku taste in haberdashery.

(Also: Hey, there is nothing shameful in like Kanetsugu! He's terribly shouty and people don't want to be seen near him in public a man of JUSTICE!!! )

LOL, do you have a nicovid account? THere are so many horrifying SW2 fandmade vids I could show you.

Cool, I think I made a post about it back in the day? Nico's tagging system is so much better than youtube's, I find. I'll make another post sometime :D
