Random Curiosity | Chouyaku Hyakunin Isshu: Uta Koi – 07

“Yoshitaka and the Daughter of Minamoto Yasumitsu/Kou Naishi and Michitaka”

Random Curiosity's Bakamochi: Uta Koi’s second arc brings two new stories to center stage, both linked by the same sense of loose continuity that punctuated the vignettes in the previous arc. It would appear Yoshitaka (Ishida Akira) is this era’s Narihira, only the suave, gravitational charm is replaced by an almost flowery and Zen demeanor. This story may feel as if several pieces of the puzzle are still missing, and this is most likely due to how anachronistic Yoshitaka’s courting of his fiancee is.

The story is too old to be commented.
