Ginnikan (Spring 2014, NHK) is a story set during the late 1700s Edo Period. A 10 year old boy named Tsurunosuke was wandering the countryside along with his samurai father, when the father gets killed in an act of revenge. The boy is about to get killed as well but was saved by a merchant, Wasuke (Tsugawa Masahiko) an owner of an agar wholesale business, Ikawaya. Wasuke buys the killer's revenge with one bag of ginnikan (Edo period's silver currency). Wasuke takes the boy with him to become an apprentice in his shop in Tenma, Osaka. The shop's head clerk, Zenjiro (Shiomi Sansei) is very strict with him and critical of the boy's defiant-like, proud Samurai mannerisms. The clerk is also not pleased upon learning that the precious ginnikan was exchanged for this boy. That hard-earned money was supposed to be donated for the rebuilding of Osaka's Tenmangu (shrine), which was destroyed in a fire the previous year. Tsurunosuke, who still clings to his Samurai heritage is unhappy with his situation, especially when he has to take on a new name: "Matsukichi". Having no choice but live on, Matsukichi (Hayashi Kento) starts his new life as a humble apprentice, learning the trade, and meeting the townsfolk, including a girl named Maho (Matsuoka Mayu / Ashida Mana). However, the Samurai spirit still lingers inside him, affecting his work and decisions. Will Matsukichi finally be able to relinquish those feelings and open his heart and mind towards the path of a merchant?

I'm all for this. Love to see underrated actors being given a chance to showcase their skills in better dramas like this. I'm growing tired of watching the same set of actors, especially on so-called quality dramas and movies, all over again.
