NHK selected Kiyomori Taira for history drama of this year. Japanese have some favorites for historical hero and heroine. Ryoma Sakamoto – who was selected 2 year ago – is really famous and most of us like him. However, last year – Ogo – who was the wife of 2nd Tokugawa’s Syogun is not famous and most of us dislike her. So how about Kiyomoro Taira? My feeling is that he is very famous though most of us dislike him. So, Ogo case was OK because most of us did not know her. We could enjoy her life. However, Kiyomori Taira is challenge. NHK history drama has long history and they already selected most of famous people. So they could have a limited choice. Finally his family becomes too rich and all be killed by Genji. I am interested in how NHK produce him as a hero.
