...the Koichi Village, in the Aimi

District of Shimane Prefecture.

Now, Koichi Village... that's

where I grew up.

It has taken me a whole year...

to ascertain that very fact.

But, tell me...


Are you familiar with the Ketsuzei Riots

that occured in the 6th year of Meiji?

The Ketsuzei Riots? I can't say

that I don't know of it...

These three explited

that situation

...and swindled large sums from

the villages of kiochi running a "draft-

exclusion" scam...

...and then skipping

out without a trace.

I don't know all the details...

...but I heard that there were

four culprits, not three.

Yes sir.

Of the four... Shokei Tokuichi

is now dead...

He was killed.

I beseech you, sir. Please

find those three.

I hear you...

...but, without knowing

what they look like...

...knowing their names alone

won't be much help.

That is not true! I believe

that you can do it, sir!

It should be possible to find many

people who know of them.

As your clan is spread widely

across the entire nation...

...if you were to use your

many connections...

...I know that you

could succeed!

I don't believe that

it is impossible...

But... what exactly

are you after?

The 6th year of Meiji... I doubt that

you had even been born yet.

It could be said that Karma

can stain the unborn...

All the young men of this nation, as

of their seventeenth birthday...

...will be registered for the draft, and

assigned to the army or reserves.

Their service is required

to defend the nation.

On November 10th, all familt

heads must register...

...their sixteen year-old male

children with town officials.

Upon reaching the

age of twenty...

...all such man will be inducted

into the military.

Going back in time... over

twenty years ago...

In the Sixth year of Meiji, March...
