Abarenbo Shogun a.k.a. Abarenbō Shōgun is a Japanese television program on the TV Asahi network. Set in the eighteenth century, it showed fictitious events in the life of Yoshimune, the eighth Tokugawa shogun. The program started in 1978 under the title Yoshimune Hyōbanki: Abarenbō Shōgun. After a few seasons, it lost the first two words and ran for two decades under the shorter title until the series ended in 2003; a two-hour special aired in 2004, and more might follow. The earliest scripts occasionally wove stories around historic events such as the establishment of firefighting companies of commoners in Edo, but eventually the series adopted a routine of strictly fiction.
