Gou~ Himetachi no Sengoku [ep 24]

This episode is dedicated to Rikyu. The best tea master in Japan demanded to quit making tea for Hideyoshi and returned to his homeland. However, Hideyoshi  just wouldn't grant his wish and lose his most important comrade.


Rikyu is someone I really like. He's portrayed as a genius tea master, but not only that, through his tea sessions with the others, like Hideyoshi and especially with Gou and her sisters, he gave them a lot of subtle advices when they were in a loss of direction.

Will Gou meet him again soon?

"You shall make tea for me till the day you died." - Hideyoshi
"Then, shall I have you kill me?" - Rikyu


"Trust those who give sharp words to you, not the honeyed ones." - Hidenaga

Hidenaga passed away in this episode! Though he didn't have much screentime, only appeared in the beginning of the show and during battle scenes, he played a crucial role, supporting his brother, Hideyoshi to achieve what he had now. Hideyoshi cried like a baby when he died. Back to his rift with Rikyu, after begging him to stay failed, he ordered Rikyu to commit hara-kiri or seppuku. That was a powerful cliffhanger!~

Rating: 8.5/10
