Taira no Kiyomori

WARLORD COLLECTION SPECIAL

Matsudaira Ken leads an all-star cast in the life story of Japan’s first great Warlord, Taira Kiyomori. From his earliest beginnings as a young inexperienced warrior who led the Heike into battle against the brutal pirates on Setouchi to the first Chancellor of the nation and grandfather to the Imperial Prince Antoku, this historical action drama is one of the most important movies to have come out of the 1990’s. The cast includes many superstars of Japanese cinema including Takahashi Hideki as Emperor Go-Shirakawa and Tanba Tetsuro as Kiyomori’s father. The rise of the Heike is detailed through some of the most violent battle scenes and one on one duels to ever hit the screen. Awesome entertainment and worthwhile history!

Taikoki: The Story of Hideoshi

One of Japan's great film directors, Okamoto Kihachi has brought his magic touch to television in one of the greatest stories of rags to riches in Japanese history. Rising from the lowliest of country samurai to the heights of power as ’Taiko', Toyotomi Hideyoshi is one of the pivotal figures of the Sengoku Jidai' (Era of Warring Clans). With equal mixtures of humor, powerful battles, and stunning swordsmanship, this highly entertaining 2 part historical drama is not to be missed.

Starring the charismatic Shibata Kyohei as ‘Saru' (Monkey) the funny-looking, but incredibly talented youth who would rise like an eagle to the seat of power, and supplemented with an outstanding supporting cast including Matsukata Hiroki as Oda Nobunaga (the first great Warlord of Japan) and Sonny Chiba as the treacherous Akechi Mitsuhide. With battles staged by the world famous Japan Action Club (JAC) this is a unique look at one of the most famous figures in Japanese history.

This double disc set is the first of our new WARLORD COLLECTION. These historical dramas will include the biographies of more major figures from Japanese history including TAIRA NO KIYOMORI, ODA NOBUNAGA, and TOKUGAWA IEYASU, just to name a few.

Oda Nobunaga lives on in the annals of history as the one who began the unification of Japan during the warring states era. TBS has produced a star-studded drama that focuses on Nobunaga's early days, before his rise to power. Inde-pendent and rough-mannered, young Nobunaga cares little about the protocols of clan life, finding more fascination in the study of warfare. His vassals are exasperated with his wild ways and even his mother shows preference to her younger son becoming heir to the Oda Clan. But Nobunaga's father arranges the marriage of his elder son to the daughter of a political rival and sets into motion a chain of events that would change Nobunaga's life. Rock idol Kimura Takuya of SMAP is perfect in the role of the youthful, energetic Nobunaga and heads a line-up that includes Ishida Ayumi, Kobayashi Nenji, Nishida Toshiyuki and Nakatani Miki.
