Sir Yamamoto has returned!

Kansuke had finally returned
to Shinano from Echigo.

Sir Yamamoto!

Is everyone well?

Master...

I am so happy...

Kansuke!

SUMMER, 1551

Kansuke!

I have just returned.

Thank you for your efforts.

I'm terribly sorry.

Don't apologize.

Everyone here is happy
that you are alive.

Everyone believed that you were alive.

You are truly persistent.

With so much persistence,
it's hard to hate you.

I am truly embarrassed.

Kansuke, have you heard about
the battle at Toishi Castle?

Yes.

Unable to capture that castle,
we were forced to retreat again

from the Murakami forces.

Deputy Ogasawara Nagatoki
is plotting to rescue this land.

He's another persistent one.

How was it in Echigo?

Nagao Kagetora has unified Echigo.

He has a great strategist
named Usami Sadamitsu.

Have you figured out what
kind of general he is?

Yes.

I didn't shoot it.

I was possessed by
the gods and Buddha.

Nagao Kagetora, the lord of
Echigo, is a general, yet not.

He is a priest.

Priest?

He entered the temple at the age
of seven, and was educated there.

Therefore, he reveres
the gods and Buddha.

Is he strong in battles?

Most likely, yes.

However, he has no desire
to gain other provinces.

What?

He has no notions of conquering
other provinces.

Is there really a general
like that in this world?

What does he engage
in battles for then?

For justice.

Justice?

According to Kagetora, he has no
desire to become the supreme ruler.

He just wants to change the
country to what it should be.

Kansuke, give me a simple reply.

Can we defeat him?

Yes, we will.
After seeing him in person,

I've learned his strengths
and weaknesses.

If we fight him,
we can certainly defeat him.

All right.

To do that, we must defeat the
Murakami with minimal casualties

and unite Shinano as soon as possible.

It was my fault for rushing
a victory with Toishi Castle.

It was my strategic error.

Despite what the lord says, it all
comes down to Sanada's misadvise.

So it's Sanada's error.

Is Sanada still watching
Murakami from Matsuo Castle?

The security at Toishi Castle is tight,
putting him to his wit's end.

If he can't seize Toishi Castle,
he has no future in our clan.

It might be beyond
his control already.

He has no hope of regaining
his former fief.

Kansuke, too much strategizing
can bear errors.

What the Takeda lack now is
whole-hearted military action.

That's what determines the
outcomes of battles.

It is now, when the Murakami
are confronting us,

that we should attack Toishi Castle.

What does Sanada think
he should do now?

MATSUO CASTLE, SHINANO

Kansuke headed to Matsuo Castle,
where Sanada was.

The strategist fell victim
to his own strategy, huh?

Say what you want.

If you're going to insult my lord,
please leave the castle.

We will protect our castle on our own.

We'll go down with the castle
when we trouble the Takeda.

My Lady, I drowned in Echigo.

Kansuke! It was me! I was the
one who gave Sanada the idea!

What do you say to that?

Don't brag about it.

If anyone, blame me for it!
Go ahead and blame me!

It's useless to protect each other.

I came to give you
a secret strategy.

Secret strategy?

Say that first, will you?

Kansuke, what kind of
secret strategy is it?

Murakami's main army is nailed
by the Takeda, and can't move now.

Now is the time to attack!

What do I do to seize
Toishi Castle? Tell me!

Can't you convince anyone
to switch sides?

It's not possible at this point.
So, tell me your secret strategy.

Since Murakami's main army
can't make any moves now,

I thought we could work on getting
insiders to help us seize the castle.

That's something that
anybody would think of.

Even our son mentioned it.

Can you send a messenger to Toishi
Castle and take in the entire castle?

We must first gain the alliance of
a respectable vassal of Murakami's.

Through him, we'll get Toishi
Castle to submit to us.

I'm telling you that
that is not possible!

The Takeda just lost to the Murakami.

What about Tokita Takanaga?
Isn't he your younger brother?

He may not submit to the Takeda,
but he may submit to the Sanada.

If that was possible,
I wouldn't be this troubled.

It's not possible! I've approached
him a number of times already.

Why don't you talk to him again?
You were close to him before.

If he learns you are in a crisis...

Shinome...

Why don't you restore the Unno clan?

What?

The Unno family was the master to
the Sanada and Tokita families.

As fellow family members,
why not restore the head family?

That Unno family was
defeated by the Takeda,

then fled to Joshu and ceased to exist.

If the Unno family is restored
by the hands of the Takeda,

Tokita's resentment will disappear.

Isn't there anyone suitable
to succeed the Unno family?

The heir, Unno Yukiyoshi,
died in that battle ten years ago.

There was a newborn princess then.

The heir's daughter?
Is she alive?

My older brother is
protecting her in Joshu.

Isn't your brother, Unno vassal
Kawahara Takamasa?

Yes, that's right.

KAWAHARA TAKAMASA

We will eventually crush the
Takeda. Don't forget that.

I don't know if he'll agree to it.

I'd say not.

Why don't you consult the lord?

FUKASHI CASTLE, SHINANO

So Kansuke advised you
to restore the Unno family?

Yes.

Weren't the three families,
Unno, Mochizuki, and Netsu...

part of the Shigeno clan that
prospered in Shinano from long ago?

The Mochizuki and Netsu families
are under me now, with your help.

Wasn't it your heart's desire
to restore the Unno family?

Yes.

By the way, Sanada...
I have something to ask you.

Yes.

I heard the Shigeno clan members
have deep relations with the blind.

Is that true?

I heard our ancestor was blind.

Kansuke has one good eye, so he
can't be considered blind.

But is that why you've treated
Kansuke kindly in the past?

That's what Kansuke told me.

Kansuke did?

My second son is blind.

He's at the temple now,
under the name of Ryuho.

Why don't we have Ryuho marry
Unno Yukiyoshi's daughter,

and assume the Unno surname?

You'll make your son the heir
to the Unno family?

What do you think of that idea?
Will it make your wish come true?

Yes.

Sunohara, make sure you deliver
this letter to Sir Kawahara.

I will.

Hazuki, please be his guide.

Yes.

Joshu isn't very far, after
you cross Torii Pass.

It should be fast.

Please give this letter
from me to my brother.

I asked him to let you
go home safely,

even if he doesn't consent to it.

My Lady...

I'm counting on you.

We'll be going now.

Did you have Sir Ryuho in mind
from the beginning?

Didn't you know about the
Unno princess, too?

No, it was the lord and
your quick wit.

You're despicable.

You didn't have to rely on my brother
to restore the Unno family...

Shinome, drop it.

My brother won't help the Sanada.

Just as Shinome feared, even
after two weeks, there was no reply.

Put your hips into it.

Thrust!

Focus!

SANADA GENTAZAEMON

That's the way!

Good.

Gentazaemon.

What is it, Mother?

Lord!

What is it?

Lady Shinome and Sir Gentazaemon...

What about them?

They said they were going to
visit Yamaga Shrine this morning,

so they left the castle.

But when the vassals weren't
watching, they disappeared.

Where did they disappear to?

We have no idea.

Sir Sanada!

Lord.

Hazuki.

We finally got an answer.

Sir Sunohara will be bringing
Sir Kawahara to this castle shortly.

Those fools! Why couldn't
they wait one more day?

Shinome visited Tokita Takanaga,
Sanada Yukitaka's younger brother.

My lady.

Fukai...

No one holds a grudge against you.

TOKITA TAKANAGA

Sister...

It's been a long time.

Is that Gentaro?

I am Sanada Gentazaemon.

So you've attained manhood.

Show me your face.

You've grown finely.

But I can't be honestly happy for you!

Sister, what brings you here?

So a weak woman like you has
stormed into the enemy's castle.

Please help your older brother.

I refuse.

If that is all, I'll be leaving.

My lord wishes to restore the Unno family.

Unno family?

I get it. Is that his strategy
to win me over?

He sent his wife and son over,
to beg for mercy.

Sanada Yukitaka, how low of you!

Please wait.

Won't you forgive my lord
in exchange for my life?

Rather, my lord hasn't done
anything to be forgiven for.

We came here on our own.

We hoped to quell your anger.

Please.

So you came here with
a deathly resolve?

Uncle... If my father committed
a sin by submitting to the Takeda,

then I will slit my belly here.

But hereafter, will you
become my father's ally?

Are you, mother and son,
going to atone for his sin?

The real sin is for brothers
to fight as enemies.

That is what we would like to atone for.

Sister...

You've become strong.

Did you think you could win me
over by showing such resolve?

Did you come here to trick me?

Is trickery the Sanada style?

No!

Then let's see it.
Let's start with your son.

I'll lend you my short sword.

Fukai!

What is the matter? Were you
lying about your resolve?

Mother!

Please wait!

Sir Tokita, they are not lying.

Lady Shinome will really kill herself.

Enough!

Leave!

Please wait!

Reporting!

Lord Sanada of Matsuo Castle
is requesting to see you!

What?

Unno vassal, Kawahara Takamasa,
is also with him.

The Unno family will be restored,
with the marriage to the Takeda?

That is correct.

The Unno family will be in Chiisagata?

If I may humbly speak up...

With the mediation of Lord Nagano
Narimasa of Minowa Castle in Joshu...

All the Shigeno family members
in Joshu have consented to it.

It has been our hearts' desire
to restore the Unno family.

I am discarding my grudge and
submitting to the Takeda.

The Takeda don't wish to destroy
our Shigeno clan.

They wish to join hands with us,
to bring peace to Shinano.

The Murakami clan don't have
that power anymore.

Is it my defeat?

Takanaga, it's for both of us to win.

Very well.

Sir Tokita, my younger
sister is a fool.

Please forgive her for her rudeness.

I've always envied my brother.

That feeling got stronger today.

Takanaga...

Sister... I've lost to you.

You fools! You are a disgrace
to the Sanada clan!

Please forgive me.

I am terribly sorry!

I am to blame for this!
Please forgive Gentazaemon!

No, Father!

Shut up!

Be quiet...

If I lose you two over
something like this,

I would be too ashamed to face
my vassals and people.

Rather, I'll be in a dilemma.

If I lose you, I'll be in a dilemma.

I can't live without you.

Until I saw your faces,
I didn't feel alive.

I'm sorry for worrying you
to that extent.

But don't ever do that again.

Yes.

I wouldn't be able to tell
my wife that...

TOISHI CASTLE, SHINANO

We've been betrayed!

What is going on?

We've been betrayed! Someone
set fire to the main wing!

What's wrong? Get a hold
of yourself!

Who are you?

I'm here to deliver
a letter from Tokita.

Tokita has switched
over to the Takeda.

Sir Tokita has?

We want to avoid
unnecessary bloodshed.

Are you enemy or ally?

I would like your answer now.

With the Sanada force
as the vanguard,

the Takeda launched a surprise
night attack on Toishi Castle.

Father!

Search for any remnants!

This castle invasion came to
a quick end, when the guardian

for Toishi Castle, Suda Shinzaemon
switched over to the Takeda side.

Sir Murakami!
Don't you understand?

The Takeda want you to
withdraw your forces now!

I must protect my homeland,
Sakaki, first.

By attacking the Takeda now,
you can protect your fief.

You've been defeated already.

After waiting this long, you can't
even win back your former vassals.

Nor gather sufficient soldiers.

You've lost to the Takeda charisma.

Don't you see that?

Have I made the people suffer so?

The Ogasawara, who were the Shinano
Deputy, met with demise here.

Nagatoki would later flee to Kyoto.

Due to Murakami's retreat, Harunobu
was able to make it to Toishi Castle.

Everyone, good work.

Suda Shinzaemon.

Yes.

I shall allow you to keep your fief.

Hereafter, take a character
from my name

and call yourself Suda Nobuyori.

Yes.

Sanada Gentazaemon.

Yes.

I've heard about your feat.

I haven't done much.

Hereafter, call yourself
Sanada Nobutsuna.

I am very honored!

Sanada Danjo-no-Chu.

Come closer.

As promised, I will return your fief,
as well as appoint you as deputy

of Toishi Castle.

Usami... so Doan did it.

Yes. As soon as we released him
from Echigo, he captured Toishi Castle.

SANADA VILLAGE, SHINANO

I'm going to build
a temple on this land.

Temple?

I'm going to call for Kounjiden,
who was good to me in Joshu,

and make him the founder.

Oh, that priest?

Yes, the one who treated
your gunshot wound.

You can finally fulfill
your promise to him.

Kansuke, thanks to you, I was able
to return to my own homeland.

I am standing on it right now.

Sir Kansuke...

Come... Stop that.

A grave?

It might be the grave of a samurai
who died in battle against us.

My homeland is a fief that
I obtained through battles.

What is that?

Heizo...

The Marici amulet had made
it back to Kansuke once again.
