Description The series title refers to a battle of the 14th century, but the tags that identify the figures indicate that here is a depiction of the battles of 1582, when the warrior Hideyoshi rose to power. The names in the tags are alterations of the real names: in 1861, this was recent history that could only be portrayed on the stage as if it were fiction.
