Notes

  • NHK announced that its major drama project Saka no Ue no Kumo will be starting this November. As a result, Tenchijin will be shorter than previous taiga dramas, ending almost a month early and lasting only 47 episodes.*
  • The show will be adapted into a boys-love manga for mobile phones by mangaka, Shimotsuki Kairi. This is the second time that a taiga drama has been adapted as a comic, after Yoshitsune in 2005.*
