Nobunaga no Chef
Recently, I watched Nobunaga no Chef and was quite surprised how well the drama went. I highly recommend it. The story is about a Japanese French chef by the name of Ken (Yuta Tamamori) is taken back to the Sengoku Era by accident. He does not know much except his cooking skills and before you know it, he is with the Uesama. Mitsuhiro Okiwa plays the role of Nobunaga and nails it. He is no Daisuke Ryu (Kagemusha) or Takashi Sorimachi (Toshiie to Matsu), but Mitsuhiro's role is so well done, you can learn a lot on Nobunaga's attitude and character.
This drama shows how Nobunaga saw the future and how he made himself into a self-made man. Also displays Nobunaga's talents as he uses Ken for his tactical/strategic goals in uniting Japan. Ken on the other, displays his talents as cook using the ingredients that the Sengoku Era provided him. For a fantasy historical drama, it is not that bad at all. Just watching Mitshiro Okiwa's role as Nobunaga is worth it. You can watch Nobunaga no Chef on dramacrazy.
Tenka no tame!
