In the year 1582...

When Oda Nobunaga got close to his dream of unifying the governmental power,

he got assassinated because of a treason of his vassal Akechi Mitsuhide.

But Nobunaga's right-hand man, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, suppressed Mitsuhide.

As Nobunaga's successor, he established the Toyotomi Administration.

While the sparks were still glowing,

he already glorified that temporary peace.

You Idiot!

Open the gate!

You're Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, right?


As Taiko Hideyoshi has ordered...

we've come to confiscate the thing the traitor

Akechi Mitsuhide had entrusted you with.

Give it to us right now!


it would be better to ask Akechi himself.

We don't remember that he had

entrusted us with something.

Lead me to the depository!

I want to see for myself whether it's there or not.



A thief...

We have been stolen!


Is it this way round or the other way round?


And if I pass through here, I'll find a loophole...


There he is!

Capture him!

Didn't that Sasuke guy tell me something completely different?

Take this!

Take this!


Just kidding!

You want to steal something from a government official like me?

That's not a good idea, or is it?


It's Goemon!

What? Where?

There, there, look!


What a superb view!



The great master thief...

Ishikawa Goemon, ally of the poor!






Hey, hey!

Out of the way!


What? It's empty!

We'll have a party tonight!

You there, come down! We need to arrest you!

If you tell me that, I won't come down for sure, you idiots!


Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Good bye!

I'm Goemon.

Japan's number one!

Hey, Ishikawa...


Shall I accompany you tonight, too?

What? That would be nice, but...

I don't have any money left.

I don't care at all!

If you'd like, I'll pay for everything here.

You're saying such nice things to me.



Oh, I wanted to meet you!

Hey, Goemon, it's my turn tonight, right?

You don't like that piss-smelling girl, or do you?


It's obvious that he likes me more than someone like you!

You're both good!

What are you looking at?


Shall we dance?

It's gone.

That thief really...


Who is that guy?

The one who caused that disturbance

in the town was just a normal thief.

That guy has taken the box.

Bring it back, no matter what it takes!



Kill all members of his family!

You understand, don't you?

Women, children, don't let even a single person alive.

Tomorrow morning I'll to to Hideyoshi.

He absolutely must not get to know

what happened to the box.





When did you realize that?

Just now.

Hey, come on, just give it to me!

Ah, yes, yes.

You're treating people really rough...



Hey, what are you doing, master?

Isn't it obvious, fool?

What do you mean?

Don't give me that!

This drawing...

Isn't it totally wrong?

Because of that, I was in real trouble yesterday!



It's your share from yesterday.

Thank you very much!

By the way:

Are you still after me?

No way...!

I thought, you were just a simple ronin back then, master...

And I would just hurt myself if I'd do that.


Being close to you, master...

is much more profitable...

Profitable, huh?

By the way, about that mansion yesterday...

It seems it wasn't a normal mansion.

Toyotomi Hideyoshi's magistrate, Mitsunari,...

went there to confiscate something, it seems.

Something like a... box of the southern barbarians...

But it wasn't there anymore...

Those guys are searching for it all around the city!
