The tale of the 47 Ronin is Japan's most famous historical event, and the subject of many films and television shows. This is the ultimate version, with each episode basically a mini-movie from the same people who made most of Akira Kurosawa's classic films. Each episode has the quality of a full motion picture with intricate stories and heart-stopping action as the leader of the group Oishi Kuranosuke must contend not only with the plots and machinations of the vile Lord Kira and the central government, but he faces much discord from within as the younger members fail to understand the true meaning of what they must accomplish. Similar to a Taiga Drama in the year-long format of 52 episodes. With an amazing cast that include Toshiro Mifune, Shigeru Amachi, Tetsuro Tanba, Tadao Nakamura and guest stars such as the remarkable Shintaro Katsu and Kinnosuke Nakamura, this series is much more than that. Powerful beyond compare, available for the first time ever in its entirety! Special guest stars: KATSU SHINTARO, Nakamura Kinnosuke, Nakamura Tamao, Shimura Takashi, Kei Sato, Yamagata Isao, Azuma Chiyonosuke

Movie plot
