OH-OKU (THE WOMEN OF THE INNER PALACE)

Toru Hayashi’s Oh-Oku is set in 1713 in the Shogun's harem. Shogun Tokugawa Ienobu has recently died, leaving behind an infant heir. The transition of power was fairly painless, but the shuffling within Edo’s inner court proved less so. The former Shogun’s wife, Ten’ei-in (Reiko Takashima), was barren, and the infant holding title to the Shogunate is the son of his concubine, Gekko-in (Haruka Igawa). As Oh-oku starts, this rivalry has led to vicious infighting.
