YesAsia Editorial Description

In the closing years of the Edo period, many clans in the northeast resisted the new Meiji government that was sweeping into power, including the Aizu who fought against imperial forces during the Boshin War. Borrowing from French military tactics, Aizu retainers were divided into four units, organized by age. The Byakkotai, or White Tiger Brigade, was the youngest unit, composed of samurai aged 16 to 17. Fighting valiantly for their lord and land, the young men of Byakkotai were romanticized, both then and now, for their heroic feats and adherence to the bushido ethic. The story of the Byakkotai is greatly steeped in popular culture, and has been retold in novel, manga, film, and television form.

Having previously dramatized the story in their hugely popular 1986 series, in 2007 TV Asahi presents Byakkotai once more, with an impressive line-up of photogenic young stars as our storied heroes. Yamashita Tomohisa of NEWS and Tanaka Koki of KAT-TUN lead the drama, with both taking on two roles as Byakkotai samurai and modern descendants who revisit the past. The cast also includes Fujigaya Taisuke of Johnny's group Kis-My-Ft2, Saito Shota, Tomita Sho, Yakushimaru Hiroko, and Kuroki Meisa.

幕末・動乱の時代。徳川幕府を、武士道を守り抜くため、薩摩・長州を中心とする西軍(後の明治政府軍)との圧倒的な不利な戦いにあえて臨んだ会津藩。老若男女問わず死を賭して戦った彼らの中で、もっとも若い16,17歳の藩士で編成されたのが白虎隊だった。藩主・松平容保のため、会津のため、父のため、母のため、そして愛する人たちのため、一命をなげうって戦った隊士たち。そこには現代まで語り継がれる悲劇が待ち受けていた…。これまでにも映像化され、その悲劇が今なお語り継がれる会津・白虎隊。その隊士の一人で、途中仲間とはぐれ、悲劇の地・飯盛山にはたどりつけず生き抜いた酒井峰治と、峰治を深く愛するがゆえに厳しく接する母・しげを通して、短い生涯を誇り高く生き抜いた少年たちと、彼らを力強く見守り続けた白虎隊の母親たちのドラマを描く。主人公となる白虎隊士・酒井峰治を演じるのは時代劇初挑戦となるNEWS・山下智久。その峰治の親友で飯盛山で自刃した篠田儀三郎にKAT−TUN・田中聖。また、峰治を深く愛しながらも“立派に死ぬこと”を教えるために厳しく育てる母・しげに薬師丸ひろ子。激動の会津を守るために戦い続けた藩主・松平容保に東山紀之など、豪華キャストでお送りする。
