At this moment,

I saw the essence of the sun.

It is absolute Justice.

Its brightness is unbearable.

I wanted to absorb this light

to gain the strength.

Strength and honor!

I was convinced that with kendo,

I'd be able to seize

this spark of pure life

I had discovered.

Helmet hit!

Point to Kokubu!

Kagawa, your turn.

Kokubu versus Kagawa

Start!

- Be brave, Kagawa!

- Kagawa!

- Go, Kokubu!

- Kokubu!

Side hit!

Point to Kokubu!

Towa's University

Kendo Club

Salute.

Thank you!

Turn.

Salute!

We're hesitating between Kokubu and Kagawa

for the captain position.

They have the same skill level.

According to our evaluation criteria

Kokubu is better than Kagawa.

But the kendo national federation

doesn't have the same judgement.

They only take matches results

into consideration.

In our case, we also consider

personality and behavior.

Kagawa's sword shows

sentimentality and psychology.

He has a very high skill level,

but sometimes he draws his strength

from arrogance.

That's true. He doesn't

have Kokubu's level.

He's far from having

Kokubu's purity and subtlety.

So, let's choose Kokubu.

We won't regret it.

Let's appoint Kagawa to assistant captain.

But it may make Kokubu feel unconfortable.

New leaders of the kendo club

Captain:
Kokubu.

Assistant:
Murata.

The former pupils and our master

appointed me to new captain of the club.

Our goal is

to win the kendo national championship.

It is not a personal victory

but a team effort.

It requires training.

No victory without it.

I'll do my job as a captain.

I'll put all my energy into it.

With me there will be no mistake.

Those who believe in me can follow me.

May the others leave.

Mibu!

We're treated like beginners.

- I don't agree.

- Don't worry.

It's true, we reached a decent

level since high school.

But Kokubu is right.

We must get rid of our bad habits.

It's for our own good.

Do you think so? Kendo at university

isn't a piece of cake.

Towa's University

Fall in!

Sit down!

Concentrate!

OVer!

M. Kagawa!

Here.

Foreign cigarettes

I stole from my dad.

- Is it for me?

- It's a gift.

Thank you.

M. Kagawa...

I'm bored with the newbies.

I want to wear the helmet.

So that's it...

- Do you want to buy me?

- Not at all.

I like your style.

It's brilliant and fluid.

Train me, please.

I'll talk to Kokubu.

Let's encourage the beginners

by letting them use the helmets.

I was thinking about it too.

They will put them on today.

Tada and Mibu!

Go get your helmets.

Prepare yourselves!

Mibu.

Put your helmet on.

Captain, what about me?

You're not ready.

Work your stances first.

Keep practicing your basis.

Helmets!

You're lucky.

We can't use helmets

for another three months.

Kokubu is the regional champion.

Great!

We can trust him.

His blows still resonate within me.

With a real sword

I'd be dead a hundred times.

Each time he beats me,

I understand kendo better.

Do you never win?

That's impossible.

When I face him,

he totally dazzles me.

A real sun!

You're kidding.

Not at all.

He's a real block of energy.

It's unstoppable.

- What is it?

- Medlars.

He killed himself while eating?

He was scared to fail the exam.

He killed himself for that?

Why did he have a raging hunger

with medlars before dying?

Death scared him.

He didn't have to commit suicide.

He got scared when he felt
