YAMAMOTO KANSUKE

{}OKUMA TAKICHI

Kansuke.

What happened?

Mitsu... died.

Why?

Why?!

Who killed her?

The lord did...

She went into the mountains
to pick bracken. I went with her!

Then the deer hunt began...

It wasn't an arrow that killed her.

That's right... she was saved.
She didn't die from the arrow.

It hit this, so she was saved...

TAKEDA NOBUTORA

MITSU

The lord... stabbed Mitsu's stomach!

Don't lose it!

What can you do?

What can you possibly do
with these weapons you found?

Do you plan to rise in revolt?

Densuke, would you like to go
to Suruga with me?

Let's go to Suruga
to defeat the Takeda.

Let's wait for that opportunity.

What can a farmer like me do?

Densuke, Sir Mino is coming this way.

Are we all going to get killed?

After killing Mitsu, are
they going to finish us off?

You must keep quiet
about this incident!

If we talk, are you going to kill us?

Densuke...

Is your name Densuke?

Wasn't she your younger sister?

Densuke, run away!

Stop!

He is Mitsu's husband.

He is the baby's father.

Densuke, would you like to serve me?

Would you like a stipend?

Well?

Am I going to be your vassal?

If there's anyone else,
come forth and speak up.

Densuke.

I'll give you this.

Are you trying to win me over?

Fool!

I'm offering it to you because
I see hope in you.

Won't you become my vassal?

You're lying! You're just
trying to trick all of us!

Kansuke!

Don't interfere!

Wait!

He is Mitsu's husband!
He is the baby's father!

What?

You?

What is your name?

Yamamoto Kansuke.

Who do you serve?

I'm a ronin.

You're pretty strong.

Will you hire me, too?

Please employ me as your vassal!

Do not scorn your father.

The exhaustion from battle makes
him do brutal things sometimes.

Stop it, Mother!

You are merely defending his misconduct.

She was a pregnant woman
who had obtained little food...

Do not forget your love for your people.

Mother, do you forgive Father?

There must be someone to forgive him.

If only Ogiwara Hitachinosuke were alive...

He may've been able to stop
your father's misconducts.

Sadly, I have no such power.

Was he Father's strategist?

From the time your father
succeeded as lord,

Ogiwara has removed all fears and
doubts from your father's mind.

A person who remits light can
only shine with a peace of mind,

by having someone bearing
shadows near him.

You will eventually need
someone like that, too.

Are you serious about serving the Takeda?

I'm upset about what happened to Mitsu,

but it might be better than
remaining as a farmer.

Are you going to receive
a stipend from your enemy?

You say enemy, but...

If I'm going to live in Kai,
I can't be taking on the Takeda.

There are many Takeda enemies living in Kai.

There aren't any anymore.

I'll be one.

How is a farmer supposed to fight?

I'm not producing rice,
or paying my taxes.

You'll just die of starvation.

What am I supposed to do then?

I said there's nothing we can do.

Whether you kill one or a hundred
farmers, the lord thinks nothing.

He only sees us as worms.

Takichi is right about that.

Whether you are a farmer or ronin,
you won't be able to see his face.

If you want to kill him,
you have to jump into his bosom.

Kansuke, what about you?

Are you going to gain employment
under him to kill the lord?

Densuke, what are you going to do?

Why did you accept that short sword?

I...

You're incapable of it.
Don't hold such desires.

Are you saying you can do it?

So you're going to kill the lord
when you see him?

It won't be that easy.

I'll wait for war to break out.

I'll investigate the internal
affairs of the Takeda,

and wait for war.

Once the war starts, we can
switch sides to create confusion.

War is all about scheming.

There are many ways
of defeating the Takeda.

We'll make Takeda Nobutora die in battle.

Can you do that?

I can.

No way!

You're lying!

You just want to go to war.

You're happy to have gained
employment with the Takeda.

Mitsu didn't even have a funeral!

I'm against it...

I'm not siding with the Takeda...

I'd rather die than bow to them!

Heizo!

"Kansuke, I can see the
flowers blooming in you."

"That is why I am not afraid of you."

A one-eyed ronin who limps?

He's the partner of that woman
with the Marici pendant?

I doubt the farmers' grudge
will result in a crisis, but...

We may have to kill that ronin.

I'd like to meet him.

What?

Fix up his appearance
and bring him to me.

Let him hold on to his sword.

Otherwise, he won't open up to me.

Young Lord...

Heizo...

You're lucky.

You're capable of
getting revenge for Mitsu.

You know how to fight in battles.

But I can't do anything.

I'm not strong like you.

I don't know how to fight in battles.

But I won't forget Mitsu...

I can't forget about her.

I'll hate Takeda for life on her behalf.

Heizo... I don't know how
to fight battles either.

Were you lying about it?

It's just a ronin's jest.

I traveled across the country
to participate in many battles...

I was just trying to be like
one of the foot soldiers.

The truth is, I've neither captured
a castle nor commanded an army.

Yet, I acted as if I knew
everything about battles.

So now, I can't help
feeling sorry for myself.

But Heizo, this time I'm going
to fight a real battle.

I'm going to defeat the Takeda.

Is that what you call
"the tail wagging the dog"?

Nonsense!

When you defeat the Takeda,
you'll have to return to Kai.

I'll grow rice for you.

Heizo...

Heizo! Where are you going?

Hey! Heizo!

Splendid!

Lord, the arrow has a straight
nature like Young Lord Jiro.

Father, that's because Morozumi
gives me good instructions.

Morozumi, good job.

No, I haven't done anything.

I'm just looking forward to
Young Lord Jiro's future.

Are they summoning us
so that they can slay us?

They wouldn't go to
such lengths to kill us.

That's true.

ITAGAKI'S RESIDENCE

The preparations are made
in the back. Go and change.

Are they going to take us somewhere?

That's Mt. Yogai.

The Young Lord was born in that
mountaintop castle during a battle.

The battle of Iidagawara?

That's right. Of course,
it ended in our victory.

That's why the Lord
named him Katsu(win)chiyo.

After having his manhood rite,
he is now named Takeda Harunobu.

Oh, yes.

We'll have to give you surnames.

Densuke, you are hereby named
Kawaramura Densuke...

No.

Let's make it Denbei.

Your name shall be Kawaramura Denbei.

What's your name?

Takichi.

Your name will be Kuzukasa Takichi.

Follow me.

SEKISUI-JI TEMPLE

What are they going to do
to us at the temple?

Do we have to listen to
a high priest's sermon?

The Young Lord is here!

Bow down!

They are from Kuzukasa Village.

Their names are Kawaramura Denbei,

Kuzukasa Takichi,

and Yamamoto Kansuke.

Thank you for coming here.

Kawaramura Denbei!

I'm sorry about what happened
to your younger sister.

Yamamoto Kansuke!

Face me.

This was Yamamoto Kansuke and
Takeda Harunobu's first meeting.

Come closer.

I heard you traveled across the
country to become a strategist.

Is that true?

Shamefully, yes.

It wasn't knowledge
gained by reading books?

Yes.

You polished your abilities in true
tactics without reading any books?

Exactly.

How promising...

...if that is true.

Refrain!

I understand very well.

Sun Tzu said, "All warfare
is based on deception."

Do you think you could infiltrate
the Takeda by serving Itagaki?

Young Lord!

Itagaki seems to be
afraid of you, but not me.

The deeper your grudge is...

The more beautiful your heart is.

Isn't that right?

You can't defeat the Takeda
with grudge alone,

Yamamoto Kansuke!

I wasn't even thinking that.

Then that's fine.

True ambition exists in despair.

Don't you think so?

Denbei, you must hate the lord deeply.

No...

It's all right. I won't tell you to forget it,
but can you calm those feelings down?

I want you to work with us
in bettering Kai Province.

Please.

Young Lord, I don't deserve it.

Without ambition...

Nothing will amount to anything,
even if you were to take revenge.

True ambition exists in despair.

Don't you think so?

That kid made a fool of me.
He took me lightly.

That greenhorn doesn't
even know what despair is.

Young Lord!

Itagaki, that was entertaining.

You've gone too far with it.

Don't kill that ronin.

I'd like to see what he will plot.

Young Lord...?

You want me to be a spy?

There are signs of a traitor
within the Imagawa clan.

Are you referring to Kushima
Echizen's treasonous act?

How do you know that?

Are you close to Kushima?

No, I'm not, but...

my older brother works for Kushima.

And I spotted him in Kai.

Yamamoto Sadahisa!

Is that right?

I've cut ties with my brother
from when I was a child.

Isn't it the Takeda who are
actually close to Kushima?

If you know all that, then I
can get straight to the point.

Find out what Kushima is up to
and report it to me.

Can you do that?

Very well.

But why do you trust me?

If I should switch sides, will you
kill Densuke and the others?

I don't need to take any hostages.

I don't care if you switch sides.

It just comes down to the fact
that the Imagawa are our enemy.

Please leave it to me.

Maejima Masakatsu brought
urgent news the following day.

That Kushima!
He's finally done it!

Mitsu... I'll be on my way.

MARCH, 1536
SUNPU

Kansuke, where did you go?

Where were you?

In Kai.

Kai?

Yes.

Why?

Why did you leave Sunpu?

Brother!

Leave Suruga.

Leave Suruga!

My older brother, Yamamoto Sadahisa,
attacked me in Sunpu.

What?

He's in contact with the
Takeda in Kai.

Is that true?

My brother's lord, Kushima Echizen,
is plotting treason with the Takeda.

That has become evident now.

Doesn't the lord in Sunpu know?

Lord Ujiteru passed away the other day.

What?

His younger brother, Hikogoro,
also died on the same day.

They died in the same manner.

Damn Kushima...!

Is Kushima behind it?

I don't know, but...

That is the only conclusion
that I can reach.

Their mother, Lady Jukei-ni,
seems to think that way, too.

Your report only supports
our suspicion.

Who will succeed the Imagawa family?

The two younger brothers that
took the tonsure will fight it out.

Suruga may be split in two.

ZENTOKU-JI, FUJI-GUN

One of the younger brothers,
Baigaku Shoho,

who had taken the tonsure, would later
be known as Imagawa Yoshimoto.

HENSHOKO-IN, HANAGURA

The other younger brother, Genko
Etan, who is a concubine's son,

had the backup of Kushima.

GENKO ETAN

This was the start of the
famous Hanagura Revolt.

Episode 4:
DEMON OF VENGEANCE
The End

PREVIEW OF NEXT EPISODE

If you want to switch sides,
I'll help you.

Make the Takeda clan itself,
switch sides.

Are you close to the Takeda?

Hatred, yes... but no closeness.

The Takeda betrayed us!

I'm glad it wasn't you.

Brother!

Episode 5: SURUGA REBELLION

FURIN KAZAN ERA

YATSUGATAKE

Hokuto City in Yamanashi Prefecture.

The plateau at Yatsugatake
has long been known

as a horse breeding center
called Mimaki.

Most of the chief foot soldiers,
including Yamamoto Kansuke,

that served Takeda Harunobu,
received fiefs in this area.

In an old local family, Yamamoto,
there is an egg-shaped memorial tower

that is believed to be Kansuke's.

It has been preciously preserved
with the memorial tablet until now.

The people lived with
the horses,

and in times of battle,
they aided the Takeda.

The road that the Takeda
cavaliers dashed through...

What lay ahead was Shinano, that
Kansuke and Harunobu targeted.

Access to Yamamoto Kansuke Memorial Tower
20 Minutes from either Chuo Expressway,
Sutami Interchange, or
JR Hinoharu Station
