Saigo no chuushingura


Farewell to this world and the night.

What is one traveling toward death?

Frost on the road to the graveyard.

Footsteps that vanish one by one

A dream within a dream, alas!



Mistress Kayano!

It's me!

Terasaka Kichiemon!


I'm amazed you found me.

I gave up samurai status,

and now I eke out a living here.

Squire Yoshida's wife told me the way.

Squire Yoshida?

So are you going around

to all the families...

...of the Loyal Retainers of Ako?

I've spent 16 long years walking

from one to the next.

You are the last.

All this?

Squire Oishi left it.

He said with the samurai of Ako

now left masterless... use this money to them

from falling into poverty...

...of even crime.

Thank you very much!


I take my leave.

You are one of the 47 samurai

who invaded the Kira mansion.

You are supposed to be dead.

But I am alive.

I should probably tell you why.

If was 16 years ago,

on December 14th, 1702.

Who's there?!


We're in the front gate.


I went back and forth through the fighting...

...bearing Squire Oishi's orders.

And then...

Lord Kira, I presume?

We serve the House of Asano,

of Ako, in the Province of Banshu.

We are here to avenge the death

of our late lord, Takumi.


For honor!

As we bore the head of Lord Kira

to Sengakuji Temple...

...we paused at the Asa clan's

residence in Takuji.

You called, sir?

Terasaka Kichiemon...

Proceed now to Nanbu Hill in Akasaka...

...and tell Lord Asano's widow

of what you have seen.

Yes, sir.

Then go west, to Hiroshima

in the province of Geishu... the Asano home there.




Listen, Kichie...

Your rank of foot soldier

is not why I have chosen you.

As messenger, you went from

the front gate to back...

...all though the Kira Residence.

No one else saw as much of the battle as you.

Terasaka Kichiemon... are to bear witness to what took place.

When we have been sentenced and are dead... live.

You must live on.

Hold your life dear.

And then... out those who survive us...

...and assist them with their livelihoods.

This is a vital task.

Yes, sir.

Now I know how the act of vengeance took place.

Kichie, it's good...

...that you lived on.

I've lived on because I was ordered to.

The 17th-year rite for the 46

is next February in Kyoto... Zuikoin Temple.

I must be there to attend.


Some tea, sir.

Is that a honey-locust tree?

Yes, sir.

An awful things. This wood's too hard

and it bears no fruit.

"Bears no fruit"...

Just like me.

Thank you.

Thank you. It's a fine piece.

Take care.

Shall we?


Seno Magozaemon!



I'm home!

Ah, Kisuke...

I heard you were coming back,

so I've warmed the house.

Thank you.

We've taken Miss Kane in over at the house.

Who's playing?

Miss Kane.

She's gotten better lately.

Evan Yu-san can't match her now.


I'm back.

You're late!

You said you'd be back by sundown!

I'm sorry.

The rain slowed me down.

Thank you as always.

Not at all!

How did your business go?


Oh, my!

A very rare piece.

I'm pleased to have it, but it's a problem.

I don't know who to sell it to.

I don't know who to approach.

How about Chaya Shirojiro?

No, no.

The likes of me...

...could never hope to approach

a wealthy merchant like him.

That's so beautiful!

Take this to the Chaya establishment.

I'm sure Shirojiro will agree to see you.

Leave to enter!

I am Terasaka Kichiemon,

former samurai of Ako.

I ask to see Lord Shindo Nagayasu.

Terasaka Kichiemon...
