Attack the foreign enemy;

we must expel them!

We mustn't let foreigners desecrate

Japan, the land of the Gods.

"Black Ships:
" The ships of U.S. Commodore

Matthew Perry's 1853 and 1854 expeditions

to Japan.

The Shogunate, pressured by the arrival of the

Black Ships, signed a treaty opening the ports.

This act incurred the wrath

of the Emperor.

Anti-Shogunate factions

exploited this division.

Radical ronin from the fiefs

of Tosa and Choshu...

...justifying their actions as

"divine punishment..."

...began to assassinate public officials and

prominent members of the Shogunate.

"Divine Punishment"

...began to assassinate public officials and

prominent members of the Shogunate.

"The capital:
" Kyoto, home of the Emperor. The

Shogunate rules Japan from Edo, however.

There's an anti-Shogunate group

gathering at the capital.

They oppose any alliance between

the Emperor and the Shogun.

I get it! You're recruiting ronin to fight

against the anti-Shogunate forces.

Finally figured

it out, eh?

The Shogun's visiting Kyoto for talks with the

Emperor about expelling the foreigners.

We ronin have an important mission.

It's been 250 years since a

Shogun last visited Kyoto.

This is getting exciting! It's our chance to

go down in history! I'm going to do it!

Yamanami, come with us.

I'm leaving it up

to Kondo.

I'll discuss it with him after he returns from his

training in Tama. How about you, Okita?

I'd like to attend as a representative

of our Shieikan dojo.

I want to live a life of valor and gallantry,

dedicated to the way of the sword.

Here, have a sugar candy.

What will you

do, Isami?

I plan to go.

I too wish to protect

our Shogun.

The farmers of Tama have prospered under

the divine guidance of the Tokugawa clan.

And all this domestic squabbling makes us

ill-prepared to deal with foreign enemies.

The Shogun and the Emperor will discuss how

to protect our nation from foreign enemies.

I believe it's our duty to see that their

meeting proceeds in safety.

We'll show the world

the true value...

...of Shieikan's Ten-nen Rishin-

style swordsmanship.

I'm sure that the Shogunate will

acknowledge our mettle!

Toshi, I intend to selflessly

serve our nation.


There you go,

good girl.

Good, good girl.

There we go.

How's my girl? How is she? Eh?

Here you are.

Happy to see your

dad, Tamako?

Good, good girl.





Do you think you could raise her by yourself?


So you've made

up your mind.

Yeah. I'm joining the ronin

and going to Kyoto.



Thank you.

I'll make both of you

proud of me.
