|Yoritomo (Okada Masaki) and his daughter O-hime |
(kinda reminds me of Masaki's role in 'Himitsu no Akko-chan'!)
Yoritomo and Masako seemed to be blissfully ignorant of these subjects, at least for the moment. Baby O-hime seemed to be a healthy girl (which – alas – was not the way she would grow up; I think she would have some mental illness of sort). Somehow, I think Yoritomo was still being left alone with Masako (without the Heike getting pissed off about the marriage) because Kiyomori was busy balancing his power in Kyoto. Besides, for years Yoritomo had been seen as very passive and devoid of any passion to overthrow the Heike.

Meanwhile in Kyoto, Kiyomori seemed to have an interest in a (not so young) lady, whose make up was a bit too much IMO. That old bastard! He’s about to die and he wasn’t behaving better! Really, sometimes I don’t think these ancient guys deserve such a wife like Taira no Tokiko! Well, his doom was nigh anyway, so let him do whatever he wanted...
