A little while ago this was subbed by Koala Fansubs (big thanks to them!) so I'm looking forward to this. Anyone here started to watch it now? This should be a great taiga!

Where can it be found ? nomind .This was one of my all time favorites, but only the first 17 episodes were subbed .
Got it, its on Nyya, which i prefer to Avitaz, as its so easy to get dinged on there over Taiga rips, i always get these notifications about films/dramas i downloaded 2 years back,and did not care for, demanding i reseed them .

Here is Otomo Sorin (NHK 2004 )

The Mori Motonari Taiga is my 2nd favorite Taiga Drama of all time. It should have gotten awards for makeup. They slowly age the characters throughout all 50 episodes over about 50 years, and it's pretty seamless.

It's way up there for me too, i like it better than Masamune and Shingen, which are generally considered the two best ones. This one has a strong dramatic story, with some of the best battle scenes from any Taiga.

Loving the battle scenes! This is an awesome taiga! Also, didn't they do the aging makeup similarly in Shingen taiga?

This is becoming my top5 taiga I think. Can't really say much bad about it either, I guess the only annoying thing is how senile Motonari became at a year of 59. Acting became more like he was 85. And to that add the hoarder lady concubine who can't get her things organized, lol. Too much. I hope they don't concentrate on those two in the end of the taiga. Though I am not sure, they already skipped battles with Otomo and Amago to show those two complain in a messy hoarder room.

I also wished they would've shown how they took the remaining Ouchi castles after the glorious battle of Itsukushima.

Also wondering how historical are Murakami Navy's Kame-dono, Jiro and his death, and the merchant Hotate-dono.
