This incident happened...

at 7 am, January 2nd, Kannei 6 (1629)...

in front of Edo Castle's main gate.

On January 1,

the Shogun's relatives and liege lords...

had paid their New Year's respects.

And today was the non-liege lords

and Shogun's knights turn.

Hurry. I musn't be late for the ceremony.

Yes, but there are others ahead of us, Sir.

It's just a lowly Shogun's knight.

Go ahead of him.

How dare you. This is Samezu's procession.

Who are you?

I am Lord Horio Inaba. You're just a knight.

How dare you!

Horio Inaba?

You came over to the Shogun's side

betraying your former lord, Toyotomi.

I hear you are despised by everyone.

Oh, you stink.

How dare you come to the castle

smelling like this?

Go home and take a bath.

The knights have been acting deplorably.

To set an example,

we should punish Samezu severely.

Let's put them both under

house arrest for three days.

That's too lenient.

The non-liege lords will not like it.

But if we punish Samezu,

the knights will revolt.

I, Honda, will take care of this matter.

The non-liege lords and Shogun's

knights were treated very differently.

In the case of the non-liege lords...

The Shogun approaches.

Lord Shimazu...

I bid you a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year.

Lord Shimazu presents a sword and a horse.

The Shogun gives him a set of sak cups.

The non-liege lords are permitted

to talk to the Shogun personally.

This is called the Individual Greeting...

I accept it with great gratitude.

In contrast, for the Shogun's Knights...

The Shogun approaches.

We all wish you a Happy New Year, Sire.

Happy New Year.

Thank you for your generosity.

This was it. No fuss, no time.

The Shogun does not even sit down.

This was called the Passing Greeting.

They had to gratefully receive the sak

that the Shogun had not even touched.

Thank you for the sak, Shogun Ieyasu.

Oh, no. I've had quite enough.

Oh, you say one more cup?

Then this is it. This is the last one.

Oh, no. I can't. I can't.

Sir, you always make me drink too much...

trying to make me look foolish.

If I drink more, I may fall into the moat.

Oh, the moat... that reminds me.

Speaking about the knights...

Today in front of the main castle gate

there was an incident that gratified us...

Big News! Big, big news!

- Hey, watch out!

- Oh, sorry.

Stop acting like our lord.

What? Did the cat steal a fish?

No.

Wait.

Stop. Wait.

You can't barg in like this.

Just watch me.

Boss!

Big news.

Big news?

Not a cat stealing a fish?

It's Juzaemon Samezu's punishment.

Three days house arrest

for both Samezu and Horio.

Since they fought on the castle

grounds, that's fair, I think.

Oh, you don't know a thing.

That was this morning.

Just now his confinment became 50 days

and his territory will be confiscated.

And Horio?

After three days house arrest, he's free.

The 80,000 Shogun's knights are furious.

Hideo Oguni

Hideo Oguni (小国 英雄, Oguni Hideo, 9 July 1904 – 5 February 1996) was a Japanese writer who wrote over 100 screenplays. He is best known for co-writing screenplays for a number of films directed by Akira Kurosawa, including Ikiru, The Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood and The Hidden Fortress. His first film with Kurosawa was Ikiru, and according to film professor Catherine Russell, it was Oguni who devised that film's two-part structure. Film critic Donald Richie regarded him as the "humanist" among Kurosawa's writers. In 2013, Oguni and frequent screenwriting collaborators Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Ryūzō Kikushima were awarded the Jean Renoir Award by the Writers Guild of America West.Writing credits other than for Kurosawa films include Heinosuke Gosho's Entotsu no mieru basho in 1953, Koji Shima's Warning from Space in 1956, Tora! Tora! Tora!, and Hiroshi Inagaki's Machibuse in 1970. more…
