Toshiie & Matsu TV Drama VCD Set

Personal favourite: Matsushima Nanako when she's younger

I have been looking for this set of VCD even since ‘Toshiie and Matsu’ was aired on Mediacorp. For what I know, only this Odex release comes with Mandarin dubbed and I was thrilled when I finally found someone selling it on Ebay Singapore.

To my surprise, the seller is a female and cos I don’t think most women like samurai TV series. It’s maybe because ‘Toshiie & Matsu’ tells a heartwarming love story about their perseverance in love. The series basically tells the true-life story of ‘Toshiie Maeda’ which stick closely to the narration by Wikipedia.

Those who play samurai related games like ‘Nobunaga Ambition’ and ‘Samurai Warriors’ would find Toshiie Maeda’ s name familiar. Yes, Toshiie Maeda is the samurai who once served the great Oda Nobunaga.

‘Toshiie and Matsu’ also tells the close and complex friendship of Toshiie Maeda and Toyotomi Hideyoshi. There are also other famous samurais like Tokugawa Ieyasu, Date Masamune and others mentioned in this 49 episodes series.

This NHK series also is supported by big cast like Sorimachi Takashi (GTO - Great Teacher Onizuka & Beach Boys), Takenouchi Yutaka (Beach Boys) and my all-time favourite Japanese female idol Matsushima Nanako ( GTO, The Ring and Forbidden Love).
