Kainan (Shipwreck) 1890

July, 1889

This story begins on this island,

between the land of rising sun,

and land of rising moon.

Welcome home

I'm home

Today's catch is great

here is a squid

Haru, back from doctor's errand?

Good timing

Would you take this to doctor, please?

Finally, the sea calmed down,

was able to catch more fish

see you later

Welcome home, Haru-chan

She hasn't given her answer yet?

She lost her finance at sea...

Are you still hanging on to a little hope?

Don't say nonsense

Say encouraging words instead

Why do you say that?

You were saying that too.

Don't say that to everyone

here we go again

She is still mourning,

and I can't do anything for her

Nobody can comfort her.


This voyage placed heavy burden

for the honor of my nation

I was expecting that also

My friendship with Fengyun

was getting stronger

and it continues to this day

Look beyond your win

As you got promoted in the Navy

you let physical strength go?

Every day is going over documents

and stamping them all

Ah.. Haru-san

Welcome home

That's all for today

[ Tamura Clinic ]

Thank you, did you find medications?

Is this all?

They are getting expensive

You are fine now

Hey, say to your doctor, "Thank you"

Thank you

You are fine now

I'm sorry to come in during your dinner

it's okay no problem

You also have a guest too

It is minor cut

but be careful


Hey, Ryokichi!

Very grateful, thank you so much

Thank you

let's go home

Thank you,

Take care...


What did you charge for doctor's visit?

This is it

Really, you have not changed much

Grace for meal

But I did not expect that

you opened your clinic on this tiny island

I love this island

I will wait for you

I'll be back

You gave birth to a healthy baby

I'll be alone, you have to come back safely

I will see you next time with this tear

I went to see Colonel Osman

He told ministers

The long voyage to Japan is significant

Europe will put pressure on our position

We must regain the dignity of empire

This voyage is to prove

our determination and ability


Our nation is counting on this voyage

You go, and if you don't come back

I may have to face the consequence,

But if you do not... If you do not...

promise me

You must come back

I'll be back father, I would

No matter what happens,

you have to come back

No matter what happens

May Heaven bless you

And you too

Battleship Ertugrul on July 14, 1889
