Japanese TV series 2008/8/19 17:15
Hi!I'm trying to find more about one Japanese TV series. It was on TV in my country in late 80th, I'm not sure about its name, but may be it's called "Gonnosuke" and it's about a samurai. Does somebody know about such a series? I would be happy for any further information. Thanks.

How long was the series? It is most likely one of the big drama's they produce yearly.

try d-addicts wiki or jdorama.com

they might be of some use.

good luck

Thanks. I don't know how long was it, I haven't seen it, but I need to make a review about foreign films and series on our TV in the time of communism. This was one of them. In my language the name of the series is something like "The falcon, the guard of the night", but I've heard the original name was Gonnosuke. Anyway, thank you very much!

It doesn't seem to be released in DVD or something. Probably the only way is to wait for it to be aired in SkyPerfecTV! in Japan.
