In a world where women rule over men. A man thirsted for power over love, a woman lived at the mercy of fate. The secret of the inner chambers of Edo Castle unveils again.
Late 17th Century in Edo (now Tokyo), a plague that kills only men has decimated the male population, leading women to take on all key posts. The infamous O-oku—the inner chambers of Edo Castle —is now home to hundreds of beautiful men who serve the Lady Shogun, hoping to be chosen for an opportunity to sire her child. Adapted from Fumi Yoshinaga’s popular, award-winning graphic novel O-oku: The Inner Chambers, Fuminori Kaneko’s The Lady Shogun 2 tells the story of an ambitious chamberlain who appeared only interested in using the Shogun for his own power, and the Lady Shogun who’d lived with the burden of being a Shogun. Will these two lonely souls find the way to know true love?
