Synopsis

Born in the Chinese state of Lu in 551 B.C., Confucius is raised by his mother after his father dies when he is only three. He marries at 19 and enters the service of the local nobility. At 32, he becomes tutor to the Prince of Lu's children, eventually becoming a politician at 51. His career peaks are the roles of Lu's justice minister and eventually prime minister. The land prospers for four years, but Confucius grows disenchanted with court intrigues. For the following 12 years, he wanders the neighboring states, offering advice to their rulers.

Beyond the main subject, the anime has an enormous number of characters, places, incidents, and ideas, crammed into 90 minutes. You can't tell the players without a program. Except for the seductive Lady Nanzi and the supremely loyal Zigong, there isn't enough time to develop any of the subordinate characters or make read more
