You might be wondering about the Shogun bit of this movie. The movie is an unofficial crossover with the period drama Abarenbo Shogun, which ran in TV Asahi from 1978 to 2008. The guy who helps Eiji and co. is the protagonist of said show, the Shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune, under the (terribly hidden) guise of Tokuda Shinnosuke. He roams freely around the town and interacts with his vassals on a daily basis; nobody in town knows Shinnosuke’s actually the Shogun, even though he makes little effort to conceal this fact.
The actor who portrays the Shogun, Matsudaira Ken, is also well known for his song Matsuken Samba, which he popularized on stage plays. The song at the end of the movie borrows some elements of this song, adding in the particular pop/rap flair you’re used to from Avex, and it’s also sung by Matsudaira Ken. Though we can all agree this is a superior homage to Matsuken Samba.
