Heike Monogatari

The Taira clan, also known as the Heike, holds immense authority over Japan. When a young girl, gifted with an odd eye that allows her to see the future, foolishly disrespects the clan, her father pays the price of her crime with his life. Soon after, as fate would have it, Taira no Shigemori—the eldest son of the clan leader—stumbles upon the same unfortunate girl, who now calls herself “Biwa.” Biwa informs him that the downfall of the Heike is imminent. After learning of the great injustice Biwa suffered at the Heike’s hands, Shigemori vows to take her in and care for her rather than let her be killed. In an era of rising military tension, the Heike are in the midst of a cunning struggle for power, and bloodstained war is on the horizon. Shigemori, whose eyes allow him to see spirits of the dead, is both anxious and hopeful to prevent his clan’s demise. Biwa, however, is reluctant to reveal the future to him and must adapt to her new life filled with both happiness and sorrow in this pivotal chapter in Japanese history. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Review : The Heike Story, Heike Monogatari, or more objectively documented in Japanese history books as: The Tale of the Heike. No matter what you call this show, I see it as 3 words: a cult following. It’s so pleasant, fresh and refreshing to watch a historical work like “The Tale of the Heike” which was already very well documented in the history books throughout centuries as an epic account throughout its many translated derivatives, and the well-known 3-person team of director Naoko Yamada, scriptwri…

Review : I’m so glad Yamada Naoko is alive. Amidst the absolute worst circumstances, amidst brutish violence, amidst the burden that will continue to be carried every day, I can still be thankful that there were survivors of the KyoAni arson. I can be thankful that KyoAni are holding their heads up high, continuing to produce high-quality work, without cynicism, and as if completely unfazed. Despite occurring so close to the disaster, The Violet Evergarden movies were still released to the world in a won…

Review : I Love Japan People always say that, but they hardly know anything about Japan. Stop for a second and think, do you want to have even a slightest understanding of the country you claim to love so much? If you do not want to understand Japan, then just do not waste your time on this series. If you do, I am glad that there are people like you and this review will be for you. The Heike Story is a great opportunity for you to know more about Japan. Even though, it will not be easy, it will only make…
