I got hooked on "Hojo Tokimune" in 2001 when it aired here in early 2001. I loved the drama because it was masterfully acted, written and produced. Watching it, I immediately formed a strong attachment to many of the characters. There really isn't anything I don't like about "Hojo" because it was so well put together. Everything from the tragic struggle between Tokimune and Tokiyori, the threat of Mongolian invasion, and the fighting between the clans all help make the show so suspenseful and dramatic. What makes it even better is how closely they followed history; many of the head characters were actual historical people. As far aesthetics go, the make-up, costume and scenery are beautiful. It really is just a wonderful drama, probably the best television show I have ever watched. If you liked "Hojo Tokimune", you may also like "Toshie & Matsu" or "Yoshitsune". Both of those are also excellent dramas, released in 2002 and 2005, respectively.
