Legendary samurai superstar Kitaoji Kinya takes the lead as historical figure Ooka Echizen no kami Tadasuke the famed magistrate during the glory days of the Tokugawa shogunate. A paragon of honor and honesty, he was commissioner of Edo South Magistrate's Office for 20 years, leading to many adventures and exciting incidents described in this series. Looking back upon his dissipated youth, he had grown into one of Japan's most important officials. Having come into prominence during the reign of Tokugawa Yoshimune, his close relationship with the shogun made for a life filled with drama as he put everything on the line to keep the peace and maintain law and order in the capital city. Many of the cases he investigated and presided over as judge have become part of Japanese folklore and led to the immense popularity of this series. Not to be outdone, Ooka Echizen is a towering figure in Japanese history and this superb series does him justice and is not to be missed!
