The Haunted Lantern


Be brave!

How horrid!

What's a woman doing alone

in a place like this?

Your heart belongs to someone.

Don't talk.

And you care deeply for him.

But I advise you not to go.

Your love won't be realized

in this lifetime.

Your feelings are too strong.

Those feelings will end up

destroying everything.

Your love will give rise to

nothing but unhappiness.




Thank goodness you're alive!

Tsuyu, what are

you doing here?

I couldn't stay on my own!

Ifyou're going to die,

then I want to die with you!

We were bound to lose.

But I couldn't die, because

of my thoughts ofyou.

Let's go.

Surrenderyour sword and armor.

And disrobe.

On your hands and knees,

and bow before us.


This one's a woman!

This is interesting!

Have your way with her!


Die with me!

This is the end!

Ifwe were to die together,

then I'd be satisfied!

This is enthralling.

Let's see it carried out.

I'm fascinated.

That woman wants to die.

But it is you who will decide

whether she lives or dies.

You could even die together.


Ifyou betray that woman,

and simply watch her die...

I could let you go.

What's the matter?!.


I wish to be united as

man and wife in heaven!

I believe in you!

What will you do?!.

You're despicable!

What is it?!.


What's the matter, Shin?

I was having a nightmare.

A terrifying nightmare.

That's what you get for

sleeping in a place like this.

Let's go home.

I'm bored here.


Let's go.

So what was the dream about?

I couldn't remember,

once I woke up.

You've been fearful

since you were a child.

Don't be ridiculous.

- Hey, wait!

- You wench!

Get going!

You said you'd pay any amount

ifwe made good time to Edo!

Six times the price

is exorbitant!

The river waters have risen!

- Oh, my.

- What'll we do?

It'll get messy

ifwe get involved.

Then I'll go alone.

Okay, okay.

Wait here quietly.

Don't come until

I give the signal.


What a stupid move!

Wait, brother!

You came out too soon, Shin!

You would have been

badly injured if I didn't.

Are you hurt, Miss?

I'm grateful to you

foryour assistance.

Not at all.

Where are you traveling to?

I'm going home to Edo.

As are we.

You would be safe with us.

You should be happy I'm allowing

you to carry the swords.

Be quiet.

You've got the good job.

I absolutely must return today.

I'm terribly sorry to

trouble you.

No trouble.

Is it an emergency of some kind?

My father has a bad heart.

I'm hurrying back with

a secret elixir...

from a mountain ascetic.

I'm so worried that

he might have an attack.

I see.

The sketches will be ruined

if they get wet.

So hang on tight.

I will.

There should be

a teahouse up ahead.

You can hire

a palanquin there.

We cannot go there.

At least do me the favor

of telling me your names.

He's Tomozo.

I'm Shinzaburo Hagiwara.

I am a ronin.

I'm the daughter of

Heitaro Iijima.

My name is Tsuyu.

Tsuyu Iijima...?

Have we met?

Well, take good care.

Tsuyu. Come visit.

We're in Shimizu Valley

in Nezu.

Can we meet again?

If destinywould have it.


What a fine woman!



You slept in again?

You're hopeless!

-Have a safe journey!

-I will!


You're young and wasting

your time staying at home.

Find a job!

Sorry to trouble you.

Is it that woman?

By the way, there's someone

I want you to meet.


I told your mother that

you're here.

You what?!.

My apologies-- Oops.


You're below our station.

Watch your mouth.

Forgive me.

Let's go get something

to eat later.

Wait, Tomozo.
