Ichi! Let's do it!

Ready, Sabu!

Hate the sin, but love
the sinner, for whether you
bind or slay, you do it for others...

They are true men
who slash through the darkness.
Sabu and Ichi, of the misty, moonlit night.

The bird in the cage...

When, oh, when will it come out?

In the night of dawn...

The crane and turtle slipped!

Who is standing behind you?


No, I'm Yonokichi!

Oh, man! I got it wrong again!

You're it again!

Too bad for me...

He's it again!

Episode 17: Night of the Autumn Drizzle
First aired: 23rd January 1969


Fresh noodles!


H-Hey, watch where
you're going, you airhead!

Oh, sorry, I didn't realise...

Help! Murderer!

Ow! You murderer!

Why, you dog!

I know you did it! I hate you! Take this!

What 's gotten
into you? Somebody, help!

P-Please, you have to
forgive me! I'm begging you!

Oh, guess it was just a marital quarrel...

Hold on, official! Listen to me!

No! This man's a total liar!

I just can't take it anymore!

Sir, it's not what it looks like!

I can't stand it!


Are you a stray?

Good boy.


Go on. Go back to your mother.



Oh, thanks!

Sabu, did you have a case today?

No, not really.

There is some nasty rain out...

Oh! Ma'am!

Be sure you don't catch a cold, Tomo.

You should watch yourself too, Ma'am.

I'm very happy to hear you say that.


Oh...what's the matter, Tomo?

Why are you staring at me?

You were just so beautiful...

Oh...please, Tomo.

But I'm happy to hear that.

Oh? Come on in!

Is Kayo in?

Kayo's in, isn't she?

Hey! Don't bother hiding her from me!

Is Kayo in or not? Get her out here!



Ho-ho, hey, hey, hey, hey.

So, you're Kayo, huh?
Come a little closer, why don't you?

Can I help you?


Never mind that!

You !

M-M-M-Master! Master!

Shut up!

You're spoiling my booze...

You're in for it now!

I was talking to you, fool.

Fine, then.

If you don't have any
business here, then leave!

What ? I have business, with Kayo!

You'll bring 30 ryo to the Myojin
Shrine at half past the fourth hour tonight.

I’m sure you remember
what happened ten years ago.

Do you understand now?

Ma'am, please pull yourself together!


Ah. . .Ah~!

What a way to put on an intimate show!

Get out! Get out!

Hey, Master! A little help here?

Oh, shut up...can't
a man sleep in peace?

Can you rough that
young one up for me a little?

Please, Master?


Get out!

Master! Now!

Do it yourself.

But isn't this why I
hired you as my bodyguard?

Yes, that's right.
But I'll have you know...

I hate doing this!

You could never understand me

Heh...but I know you need the money.

I've run out of booze now.

Time to find another pub.

Well, you sicken me!

This isn't over, boy!


Remember, half past the
fourth hour at the Myojin!

It's still raining!

Master, wh-what’s the matter?

Come on out.

Sir, I'm just a masseur taking shelter from the
rain. You've had too much to drink, haven't you?

What ? It's just a blind man.

That nearly scared me!

You're quite skilled, masseur.

No, I'm afraid I'm just a dabbler.

I love strong fighters
just as much as I love booze.

I hope we meet again, masseur.

Hmph! Blind man!

Hey, Master! Wait for me!

He's good. But what
a shame, he's so young.



Ma'am, you can't listen to them.

But it's all over now.

Now that he's here,
I can't keep running this store.

Y-You don't mean...

You've finally built this place
up with your own two hands!

But all that means nothing...

All because of a mistake I made a long
time ago, that I can never tell anyone...

I suppose this is just karma.


If there's anything
I can do to help, I'll do it!


Please, tell me.

I'm happy to hear you say that...

It all started just ten years ago...

I was sixteen at the time.

We were so poor living in the
country, so I was sent to Edo to work.

Come on out...

Let's play...


Ah, what is that little wench doing?


Ah, so this is where you were!

Now get back to work!
I'm paying a lot of money for you!

So stop playing with your little rat, and...

Ow, ow, ow, ow!

Ahhh! A rat!

Look out!


Do more work!

Now do the laundry!

Yes, ma'am!

Kayo! Go pour some water outside!

Yes, ma'am!


Yes, coming!

Wh-Wh-What was that for?

My deepest apologies!

My hand slipped just when
you happened to pass by!

Please forgive me!

What's taking you so...oh!

Chief Kanroshi!

Oh, my! Apologies for
what my maid has done to you!

I hope that you can find it
in your heart to forgive her...

Please forgive me!

Now then, it's no problem!

But you better be more careful.
If it was anyone else, you'd get the chop.

Your name's Kayo? I'll remember it.

Get out of here! Now that Daigoro's
got his sights on you, you're through!

Get out, now!

I had nowhere to go.

I was thrown out onto
the unfamiliar streets of Edo.

Come get your okonomiyaki!

We have piping-hot steamed buns!

Step up, young lady.

Only two man each. They're delicious!

I'm alright. I think I'll just go home.

Oh, really?


It hurts...

Ah, I'm so hungry...

That little girl will shine
if she's polished right.

Just one persimmon shouldn't matter...

So I thought, but I was wrong.

Hey! You thieving dog!

Give it up!

Please, forgive me!

I was an innocent young girl...

...and Daigoro the detective used
that persimmon to blackmail me.


At the end of it all, he took me home...

And now after seven years,
Daigoro has come back!



Ma'am, you shouldn't go to the Myojin.

Just stay here!

Tomo, no!

Don't worry about me, Ma'am.

Just wait for me.'d accept even me?


Hmm, so that's how you'll play it...


I win again.

Ah. you're as good as ever!

Heh, heh...I'm not that good, really!

That's the bell ringing
half past the fourth hour.

Bad news! Bad news!
There's been a murder at the Myojin!

I'm going, Ichi!



Tomo...l was so worried about you...

I'm so glad you're alive!

I'm so happy to hear you say that!

But now I've killed Daigoro!

Tomo, let's run away together.

Let's go somewhere no one will follow us!

Tomo, let's run away!

I can't...l can't!

I just can't do that.

All I can do is make you happy.

I am a vagrant.

And we live in an age
where vagrants are exiled.

On top of that, I have killed Daigoro.

He may have struck first, but this is enough... satisfy me!

I don't care...

I don't care about any of that!

As long as we're together...

They've escaped!

Tomo, my sandal's broken...

What should we do, Tomo?

That's not good.

Let me see. This ought to fix it.

Tomokichi! That's as far as you'll go!

Tomokichi, surrender yourself!

If you're arresting Tomo,
please arrest me, too!


A crime is a crime.

You shall be
judged by the authorities.

After that, you can only
wait for mercy. Understood?

Not on my watch!

It's time to take vengeance for my chief!

You won't get anything
from defying the authorities!

Get them, men!


I won't stand for any vigilante justice!
Leave the judgment to the authorities!

Come again?

Get him!


You scum!

I'm going to avenge my chief!

Prepare to...

Who's there?! Show yourself!

Masseur for hire, only 16 mon...

I don't make a lot on a snowy day like this.

So I'm willing to provide a discount!

Blind man!


So sorry to disturb you, Sabu.

You blind son of a...

Ah! Get him, boys!

You !

Don't worry. I only used the blunt end.

Yes! Get him, Master!

Mr. Samurai...

You shouldn't be desperate.

Recklessness is the worst
poison for consumption.

I don't want to kill you.


Sabu, don't interfere.

This is a one-on-one fight.

Yanokichi.. .

You no longer have anyone to rely on.




Sabu, are you sure you're
not fit to be a detective?

This case almost made me
want to turn in my truncheon.

But it was Daigoro that struck first,
so Tomo's not guilty of anything!

Why won't they let him out of jail?

Well, it's because he's a vagrant.

How cruel for vagrancy to be a crime...

Oh, there, there.

You're a vagrant yourself, aren't you?

But we'll find you a
good wife sooner or later.

After all, detectives these days
are getting younger and younger.

If you send a vagrant to jail,
it's clear how the authorities will treat him.

But if he's a soon-to-be
husband with a loving wife,
the authorities will treat him better.


I mean, our chief here can’t
even mediate a marital quarrel.

How rude, Ichi!

Midori, Sabu has an idea.

Tomo...Tomo will
come back as my husband!

The snow does not fall
forever in the city of Edo.

When the snow has thawed, a red lantern
will once more be lit in front of the store...

...and a new married couple will be born.

Shamitaro here.

Now, as for next week...

When bonds of fate cannot be severed...

One can only pray to
the gods to sever them.

And they say when someone
drives a stake into a straw doll on
the Hackberry of Separation at night...

...they can sever all
their unwanted bonds.

Just outside the Itabashi
Station on the Nakasen Highway... a story of this Hackberry of
Separation, and after Sabu and Ichi...

...have swung around their truncheon
and sword, and defeated the villains...

...they unexpectedly
cry the tears of a man... this tragic tale of a woman.
