Review of Waka Oyabun
9 March 2012 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Takeshi Nanjo, the young boss of Nanjyo family in the meiji-era of Japan. At the time Japan was celebrating victory of Japan-Russia war, the boss of Nanjo family Tatsugoro was killed by a member of Takizawa family. When Tatsugoro's son Takeshi learns about his father's death, he quit naval officer position and headed to home to succeeds father's position and taking a revenge. After Takeshi succeeded father's revenge, he finds out the true enemy is a malicious yakuza boss of Izo family.

The story of Waka Oyabun (aka Young Boss Takeshi) centers on a young boss Takeshi reading Nanjyo family, a chivalrous yakuza family, verse a malicious boss Izo reading Izo family. While this Yakuza movie is quite different and less violent than other typical Yakuza movies, Raizo Ichikawa's excellent play draws audience into the story and holds up tension until the movie's final scene. This is the first installment of eight Waka Oyabun series and Raizo Ichikawa's in one of the best acting.
