Meiji 7 (1874). Tokyo Prison, Hachioji,

Kanagawa Prefecture Branch


You were born for vengeance...

Such a poor child...

A child of the netherworlds...

Lady Snowblood

Move it!

Get out of our way, woman!

Who do you think you are?!

Do you realize that he's Shibayama Genzo,

the Asakura Senryo Gang leader?

It doesn't matter! Kill her!

You bitch!

What are you, an assassin?!

You little bitch!

Don't kill her...

I want her to tell us what

fool hired her.



Who are you?! Speak!

Who gave you orders to come

after me...of all people?!

Answer me!

Wh... Who are you...?



All those helpless people that

have suffered, thanks to you...

Woman, wh...wh...who

the hell are you?!

Lady Snowblood.

Begrieving snow falls...

in the dead morning...

Stray dog's howls... and the footsteps

of Gete pierce the air...

I walk with the weigth of the Milky

Way on my shoulders...

...but an umbrella that holds onto

the darkness is all there is.

I'm a woman who walks at the

brink of life and death...

...who's emptied my tears

many moons ago...

All the compassion,

tears and dreams...

...the snowy nights... and tomorrow...

hold no meaning...

I've immersed my body in

the river of vengeance...

...and thrown away my womanhood

many moons ago...

Chapter One:

Binds Love and Hate

Over twenty years

have flown by...

...since the new era of Meiji ended three

centuries of peaceful Tokugawa rule.

The European ideas of social progress...

...that once greatly unsettled the people

are becoming widely accepted.

Still, provincial disputes

continue unabated... do unfair practices by mercenary

plutocrats and shady businessmen...

...and actions taken by corrupt officials

seeking only to benefit themselves.

And, self-indulgent, rich men and

women only grew in number...

...while the pleas of

poor peasants...

...who could barely make ends

meet, remained unanswered.

And at this time, there lived a

woman of the netherworlds.

Everyone knew her

flowery beauty...

...but, not many knew that deep inside

her seemingly gentle and pure heart...

...burned a raging desire to

hunt down her enemies.

People say...that what cleanses this world

of decay is not pure white snow...

...but snow that is stained fiery-red:

"the snow of the netherworlds."

Damn it...

Pardon me...

I would like to see

Sir Matsuemon...

Where can I find Sir Matsuemon,

your leader?

Please, would you

take me to him?

Come with me.

Please! Please!

Pass it around!

Pass it around!

Pass it around!

Pass it around!

Pass it around!

Anything that comes here

gets passed around!

That is the law of our band!

C'mon now! Pass it around!

Pass it around!

Pass it around!

This goddess of sex

is here for us!

You think you're tough?!

She got me!

Kill this bitch!


Stop! Stop it!

Fool! Idiot!


How dare you!

Wh...Wh...What the...?

You fools... How dare you act

like stray dogs in heat?!

But, Boss...

You idiot!


The lady is a very important

guest of mine.


As you know, that ruthless

bastard Shiba-Gen...

...tried to destroy our village

by bankrupring us.

This lady is the one...

...who croaked him!

Miss... I was told that you make

your living as an assassin...

...yet, looking at you, I cannot

imagine you hurting a fly.

Tell me, Miss Shurayuki...

...what is it that you seek?

Sir Matsuemon...

I would like to request your assistance

in finding these individuals.

Takemura Banzo... Tsukamoto


...Kitahama Okono...

Oh... all three seem to be from...
