In the midst of the 1 3th century,

on the Asian continent

Genghis Khan's son Kublai had

constructed the Mongolian Empire,

and in seeking to put the Korean Peninsula as

well as Japan under its influence

demanded Japan to submit tributes.

The arrival of the letter, which hinted at the use

of force, shocked the Kamakura Shoganate

and the lmperial court turned pale with fear

by such an unprecedented major event.

After repeated conferences the decision was

made to reject the proclamation from Mongolia,

resulting in the attack by large Mongolian

forces on the costal region of Kyushu

shortly after 1274, followed by another in 1 281

What's up with them?

Those Mongoloid monsters are

coming in droves to attack Kyushu.

Because of that, I heard they've been rounding

up crooks to send them over to Hakata.

Sh*t, we should run away!


Brother! What's going on?

Damn you! Where are you taking my brother?

Let him go! Let my brother go!

Punish her!

Yes, sir!


Savages! Murderers! Demons!

What did you just say?!

You'll pay for this!

Murderers like you are destined

to burn in the demon's cauldron!

I can't be a murderer if I don't believe

in your monk's made up stories.

And more importantly have a look,

the crows already have their eyes on her.

We are always the ones

who get treated so horribly


it seems you're still a poor writer of songs.

As I am an old man I can only

accompany my lord's whims to a point.

I am as frail as these poems,

and I told you many times how

it doesn't fit my personality.

Not making any poems and constantly drinking

You are one helpless chief counselor

Yes, but this is the last. Forgive me.

The relaxing spring sun

has lulled my old body

and I feel pleasantly sleepy.

You mean you are sleepy from alcohol.

Such songs of love,

No matter how much preasure is put on me,

at my age they are empty words.

Take a look, Seienji's face is filled with life.

Is there anything the matter, old man?

I'm saying that I'm jealous of you.

"Hidden Love"

"Past Love"

"Love at Dawn"

"Love in the Afternoon"

"Distant Love"

"close Love"

"Love During Travel"

These topics seem like Lord Tameie

was coming up with them just for you.

By the way, Lord Tameie


I hear that you were quite the master

of kemari when you were young

No, No. It was not that impressive

No, he possessed magnificent skill

it's unfortunate that I do not have any

memory of seeing Lord Tameie play kemari

Though his father Lord Sadaie did

seem to have a permanent illness

Indeed. I had a folding screen made of the 1 00

preeminent songs he wrote while at our retreat

in Mt.Kokura

but the letters were thick and seemed to

have been done with trembling hands

so he probably had a disability,

although he still lived a very long life

He also seemed to get long with

the samurai from Kanto

Unlike us, he seemed to have an eye

for understanding current events.

That, Mr. Sanjyo, is because they welcomed

in his wife from Mr. Saienji's house.

Lord Tameie's mother did come

from Seienji's house.

Unlike us,

cooped up in the capital obsessed over old

traditions like frogs in a well,

Seienji's family is equipped with robust wit,

capable of making friends with the

wild bunch in Kamakura.

Isn't that so, Mr. Tameie, Mr. Saienji?
