The Wealthy Family / The Grand Tribe / Karei-naru Ichizoku

I'm always a fan of Takuya Kimura...and I have been waiting for his drama all this time and at last the waiting is over...this time the drama is about a wealthy family...

It was originally taken from a novel by Yamahazaki Toyoko, and later a 1974 movie. The only different between the book and this drama is thet the book depicts the conflict within the manpyo family, meanwhile, in this drama it was Manpyo Teppei and Manpyo Deisuke that are the central character. 

This drama is set in the late 1960s decade of Japan. The main rivalry depicted in the story is between Manpyo Daisuke (Kitaooji Kinya), a powerful banker, and his eldest son, Manpyo Teppei (Kimura Takuya), the executive managing director of a steel firm. For some reasons, Daisuke seem to dislike his own son and as Teppei seems to find out the reason for Daisuke's hatred, his whole life is turned upside down with fatal consequences.

What I really like about japanese drama especially the one that Takuya act in is...it shows many morale value on it...how a person work harder and stand still to get what they want...how they manage to be the best...even when it's not the best moment in their life...I think this is the best drama I ever seen...it's not just abot loyalty, love, trust, family but also how to be strong and how to be good in whatever we do...
