Ichiro (NHK, Summer and Fall 2015) is based on the novel by Asada Jiro (Poppoya, Chugen no Niji). The year is 1861. Shogunal vassal, Maisaka House of Tanabu district of West Mino province is set to depart for Edo for their biennial Sankin-Kotai obligation. However, their chief attendant for the procession has allegedly caused an accidental fire in which an important mansion was burned to the ground. Such an act is considered a mortal sin. Since the chief attendant himself had perished in the fire, his nineteen year old son Onodera Ichiro (Nagayama Kento) must take the blame by performing ritual suicide. However, the Sankin Kotai is imminent so Ichiro is ordered to take over from his father as chief attendant, in exchange for his life. Ichiro who grew up in Edo learning only the Way of the Sword and the Way of Knowledge, knows nothing of processional conventions and procedures. He has 5 days to prepare before they depart, and he must see to it that the party arrive in Edo safe and on time. If they are late or never arrive there at all, it will be a huge insult to the Shogun, and the head of the Maisaka House will fall into ruin. Knowing the huge responsibility it entails, Ichiro attempts to learn the ways of the feudal procession but no one is willing to teach him, and he is at a loss. He is about to give up when a chief priest of a shrine bequeaths to him a 200 year old book that contains written accounts and procedures of the march. Seeing a ray of hope for the first time, Ichiro sets about looking for companions to help him with his mission. However, someone is determined to see him fail in order to usurp the head seat of the Maisaka House...
