Takeshiba Kinsaku I's drama "Minori no Aki Seish˘ Denki" was premiered in October 1875 at the Nakamuraza and the Shinboriza [more details]. In order to avoid the censorship, the identity of all historical characters were disguised (more or less lightly): for example the name Sat˘ Masakiyo was used instead of Kat˘ Kiyomasa and Uji-no-Kata was used instead of Yodogimi. A revised version of "Minori no Aki Seish˘ Denki" by Kawatake Shinshichi III and Takeshiba Kisui, which was entitled "Kiyomasa Seichűroku", was premiered in July 1890 at the Shintomiza as part of a special 2-day gala program starring Ichikawa Danjűr˘ IX [more details]. In this revision, the real names of the historical characters were used.
"Minori no Aki Seish˘ Denki" was in 6 acts. "Kiyomasa Seichűroku" in the 1890 revision was in 3 acts.
