Among the great 'Warlords' in Japanese history, Oda Nobunaga holds a unique place.
In effect, his military success led to the ultimate unification of the country.
This historically accurate portrayal of Nobunaga's life and times is highlighted by many of
Japan's biggest stars, most notably Watanabe Ken in the lead role.
Second only to
Mifune Toshiro as an international film star, Watanabe gives perhaps his greatest
performance as the brilliant young lord, who against all odds, defeated far larger
armies in his quest for power. Bloody realistic fighting, massive battles, and castle
intrigues all drawn from historical sources bring this 2 part drama to new heights in
Sanada Hiroyuki, Wakayama Tomisaburo, Matsukata Hiroki, and Chiba
Shinichi, all major stars in their own right, are among the supporting cast. See
Japanese history come to life as never before!
