Niijima Jo : “ I am glad that you’re a scary wife, Yae-san. You scold me without any hesitation. I wanted a wife who walks beside me , not behind me. At times, who would guide me and walk in front of me…”
Niijima Yae : “ A wife that walks in front ? ”
Niijima Jo : “ Even Husband have troubles and make mistakes.. So when i’m wrong, I want you to scold me. ”
Niijima Yae :“ I will (smile wdiely) ”
Such a lesson for us to make a harmonious couple & family. I really love this laid-back yet future-minded conversation of them. Husband not always right, not always have right to do as he pleases. There, the role of a wife plays good to accompany and guide him to be able building a happy family ^_^
PS : i really love Yae no Sakura , the casts’ acts are so good! Odagiri Joe and Ayase Haruka do have well-build chemistry! and i love how Yae-san was so destined to be Jo’s woman.
Celebrating 150 years of the best known group of swordsmen in the world! The Shinsengumi as a whole has captured people’s imagination in a way that no other band of samurai has done. Above is just a sampling of the many works that have featured their story.*
The Mibu Roushi Gumi were officially recognized by the Aizu-han on March 12th, Bunkyu Year 3 (April 29th 1863). For the next two weeks, I will be posting bits and bobs about the Shinsengumi - please join me in spreading the love, and send in submissions and questions and opinions!
