Why do so many samurai

sell their swords now?

The sword is the soul of the samurai.

We must eat.

I see.

I want money.

Oiwa... Is it you, Oiwa?

Takuetsu? I need no masseur.

No, listen, a word.

There's something I must tell you.

Osode, who comes to my place,

is bringing a new woman tonight.

A house of ill fame. I'm not interested.

Don't be surprised.

The new woman is Osode's sister.

What? Oiwa?

What is it?

Samurai Tamiya...

Quiet!

Listen...

You and Oiwa are a lovely couple.

Why did Samon, your father-in-law,

make her leave you?

Because I'm poor.

Not my fault, but my lord's ruin.

You're right.

But your father-in-law's just as poor.

He made Oiwa come home,

but he's just as poor as ever.

Or she wouldn't have decided

to sell herself, would she?

Wonderful. A real Osafune?

My offer. Your hand, please.

The market price is this.

You're hurting me.

What're you doing?

No! I won't sell it!

The money wouldn't last long.

Better to be a samurai.

Don't say that.

No!

I'll keep it!

With this, I'll get back at all those

that let me down.

SENSOJI TEMPLE COMPOUND

How about some grass toothpicks?

How about some grass toothpicks?

How about some Edo incense?

Sister. I'm sorry to keep you waiting.

Shall we go?

I told Takuetsu this morning.

What is it?

Father's so poor, I thought

of selling myself...

But my baby's moving inside

and seems to be criticising me.

You can't forget Iyemon,

your husband, can you?

You've a fiance, Yomoshichi, too.

So it's selfish of me, but...

No, it's all right.

I'm relieved to hear it.

EMPLOYMENT AGENCY

The moxa's hot, but you must bear it.

Welcome.

Did Naosuke pay?

Yes. Sells patent medicine,

but he seems well off.

He's in some shady business.

The kind that gets you ahead.

Squeeze him all you can.

If it's not enough, I'll pay more.

If you agree, we'll start

a nice new business.

Yes?

No?

Tell me.

Tell me.

Same clan, but beneath us!

A lackey and after me!

I won't listen!

Joking? Maybe before, but we're equals now.

We've no lord.

You're in hell now.

I'm different!

You are?

You're not in a sex hell, are you?

Never mind. I don't use my money or power to

make women obey me. My good point.

I'm happy to wait until you want to

become my wife or just pleasure me.

Oh, come on!

Wretch!

Now, now, it's not like you!

Never saw such a stubborn woman.

Leave him to me. All right?

This one's very quiet. Be polite.

Yes. Thank you.

Sorry to make you wait.

Look here, Takuetsu, can she do that?

Make a guest pay and no sex?

Yes, she can.

She's fussy.

My Oiro is always peeking.

What does she do?

If it's a priest,

she won't even untie her sash.

Big news!

Don't be so noisy.

A new customer, so I sent Osode.

What?

Don't be a boor.

As soon as he saw here he said, "You're...!"

She began to cry.

Why?

He's her long-lost fiance.

Yomoshichi Sato?

I don't know who he is,

but what a coincidence.

This isn't funny.

What's to become of me?

Why are you working in such a place?

What reason could you have?

Looking for a man?

What a cruel thing to say!

You're a ronin too. You know how hard

it is for us. Ronin. a masterless samurai

I come here for my

father's and sister's sake.

Ask the people here.

I hardly ever submit to my guests.

Stupid words!

What if a man uses force?

You may get away once in a while,

but not always.

That's...

Osode!

Why couldn't you wait for me?

I became very ill at home.

When I recovered...

I was a ronin without any means.

My men and I began to sell fancy goods.

But I never forgot you for a single day.

That's why I drifted here.

Osode.

If this is hell, we'll sink as man and wife

and be together.

No.

Will you see father today?

Yes, I will!

Tonight.

I'll be waiting.

I see. Oiwa didn't come.

Just as you thought.

You're sure about that?

If you doubt me, go up and look.

Leaving?

Naosuke, you look fed up. What's wrong?

Everything!

Naosuke.

Naosuke! Naosuke!

He's not going to attack

the other client, is he?

What happened to those two?

Left by the back way.

What's wrong with Naosuke?

He loves Osode and her fiance appeared.

What? Yomoshichi Sato?

Was it?

How strange.

What brings you here?

Words I did not expect to hear from you.

You're my father.

A son-in-law is a son.

You were my son-in-law once.

But I called Oiwa home,

so you are no longer my son-in-law.

Deciding alone is not fair.

I've not agreed to it.

Enough!

I don't like you.

We lost our lord, so I am poor.

Our lord became mad...

Mad due to his bad blood.

Be still!

My plight's not my fault.

Traitor!

So you say, but shorn of my fief,

I can only make umbrellas.

Not only I, tens of thousands

of ronin share my fate.

So loyalty means nothing?

Loyalty does not fill my belly.

It's the same with you.

Unsamurai-like words!

Oiwa is my wife. I love her dearly.

I will not end up like this.

With new work, I can make Oiwa happy.

You don't impress me!

Enough!

Don't you know how Oiwa and Osode feel?

No!

If you don't know, you're selfish.

Loyalty is being selfish?

You're not only selfish, you're inhuman!

Where's the money you stole

when our lord's house was abolished.

I refrained from mentioning it

out of samurai mercy.

Yes...

Ill got, ill spent.

Would it have pleased you if

I'd used it to help support you?

What? Even hungry,

samurai do not steal.

But sell women's chastity?

You! Iyemon!

Unsheathe it if there's a blade in it!

Get out! Don't come again!

No.

Since you know about the money,

you stand in the way of my success.

Iyemon!

You'll never be a samurai again!

As things are,

this world's not worth living in.

Who is it?

It's you, Iyemon?

It's Iyemon.

Yomoshichi.

Yomoshichi.

Poor fellow.

I skinned his face to be safe.

You may have been rivals,

but you didn't have to do that.

Naosuke, a word with you.

He gave me a hard time. What a heavy corpse!

You needn't have skinned him.

You might have let her see him.

You never get things right.

So what? Love makes you act strangely.

A rascal like you can love too?

Yes.

It's a nice feeling to love someone.

What happened, Yomoshichi?

This face!

Father!

What's this? What a sight!

Iyemon!

What happened? I came to ask him

to let me see you.

Father!

What? Father?

What a pitiful sight.

No one held him any enmity.

May he rest in peace.

Yomoshichi's been mutilated!

What? Yomoshichi?

What total desecration!

I understand how you feel.

I think Yomoshichi came

just as father was in danger.

He tried to help him and both were killed.

Why am I so unfortunate?

My love and my father both dead!
