Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku
Director: Narushima Izuru
Starring: Yakusho Koji, Abe Hiroshi, Emoto Akira, Tamaki Hiroshi, Shiina Kippei, Yanagiba Toshiro

As the commander-in-chief of the Japanese Imperial Navy's Combined Fleet during World War II, Yamamoto Isoroku may be remembered as the man who planned the infamous Pearl Harbor attack that started the United States' involvement in the Pacific War. However, many may not know that Yamamoto was actually against many of the Japanese Imperial Army's decisions during the war, including starting a war with the United States. Renowned historical scholar-writer Hando Kazutoshi and award-winning director Narushima Izuru (Rebirth, A Lone Scalpel) reveal that side of the respected naval strategist in the epic drama Admiral Yamamoto.

Yakusho Koji (Thirteen Assassins) takes up the difficult task of playing the respected admiral, playing a man conflicted between his principles and his duties. In addition to Yakusho, Admiral Yamamoto also stars Tamaki Hiroshi (Nodame Cantabile), Abe Hiroshi (I Wish), Kagawa Teruyuki (Golden Slumber), Yanagiba Toshiro (Space Battleship Yamato), Shiina Kippei (Wild 7), Emoto Akira (Villain), and Tanaka Reina (Flowers).

Admiral Yamamoto chronicles the final five years of Yamamoto Isoroku's life, starting from his opposition to Japan signing the Tripartite Pact with Germany and Italy in 1939. Educated in the United States, Yamamoto firmly believes that the United States is too strong to take on in a war. However, his view earns him the disdain of pro-war figures like a newspaper editor (Kagawa Teruyuki) and many military officials. As Yamamoto continues to climb up the ranks of the navy, he takes on increasing pressure from his superiors to plan for an all-out war. When Japan finally signs the Tripartite Pact, Yamamoto begins planning a surprise attack on the United States that he knows will wake up a sleeping giant.
