The Trusted Confidant (2007–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Suruga dairan - full transcript

My older brother, Yamamoto
Sadahisa, tried to kill me.

Kansuke discovers the treasonous
plot within the Imagawa

and he fiercely clashes
with his older brother.

Sadahisa's lord, Kushima
Echizen of Hanagura Castle,

betrayed the Imagawa and had secretly
joined hands with their enemy, the Takeda.

MARCH, 1536

Then Lord Imagawa Ujiteru and
his younger brother, Hikogoro,

die of unknown causes
one after another,

triggering an internal
strife for the heirship.

Damn Kushima...

Jukei-ni, who supported the Imagawa,
wanted her son, Baigaku Shoho,



to succeed as lord.

Kushima, who attained the
support of the Takeda,

tried to push for the
concubine's son, Genko Etan,

a relative of the Kushima family.

Kansuke had to side with the Imagawa,

if he wanted to crush
his sworn enemy, the Takeda.

The conflict between
the Imagawa brothers

had even split Kansuke
and his older brother.

It may split Suruga into two...

The battle that would shake
Suruga was approaching...

"Swift as the wind"

"Silent as the forest"

"Conquer like the fire"

"Unmovable as the mountain"

Master, a priest named Sessai
wishes to see you.

Sessai? Show him in.

Who is he?

Young Lord Shoho's guardian.

Though we have different mothers,
he is my younger brother.

Come to think of it,
a long time ago...

Didn't you want to leave your brother in
the care of my younger brother in Kyoto?

This priest would later become the
strategist for Imagawa Yoshimoto.

Brother, keep an eye out in the castle

so that no one will sway over to Kushima.

Does Young Lord Shoho plan
to battle with Kushima?

The Imagawa will split into two

and they won't be able to survive.

If Kushima gains momentum,

you and the other hereditary
vassals won't stand for it.

Don't put the blame on us.

I want to avoid any unnecessary bloodshed.

Please don't panic with the situation.

Please leave everything to
Young Lord Shoho and I.

Sessai...

Kansuke, I'm taking you
to meet the lord in Sunpu.

Get ready immediately.

IMAGAWA RESIDENCE

Are you Ihara's guest Yamamoto Kansuke?

Yes, my Lady.

Though you're a ronin,

your late father was
a ji-samurai in Fuji-gun

that was loyal to the Imagawa family.

If I may humbly speak...

For personal reasons, I have
kept the Yamamoto name,

but have severed my ties with the
Yamamoto family a long time ago.

You have their name but no ties with them?

Yes, indeed.

So you are saying that you wish no life

that has anything to do
with the family name.

I'd like to attain my own fame.

Sir Ihara, what brings you here today?

According to Kansuke,
a secret messenger was sent

to the Takeda in Kai by Kushima.

Kushima sent a secret messenger?

So the Takeda were
backing him up, after all.

This past act of treason
is clearly a conspiracy

between the Takeda and Kushima.

Who was the messenger?

A ji-samurai in Yamamoto, Fuji-gun,
named Yamamoto Sadahisa.

He is my older brother.

Do you have connections
in the Takeda clan?

No, I may hate them, but I have
no connections with them.

Why do you hate them?

Takeda Nobutora killed
a family member of mine.

Is that why you're going to kill
a family member for it?

If you shall so order...

I'd appreciate it if you'd
include me in your army.

You said a family member
was killed by Takeda...

Who are you talking about?

Marici.

Marici?

Please forget about it.

When Young Lord Shoho succeeds as heir,

you will surely gain employment
with the Imagawa.

Is that what you want?

Meaning?

Killing Kushima will mean
killing your brother.

That will mean the entire Yamamoto
family will be against you.

Are you sure you are
all right with that?

I have no family now.

My brother tried to kill me before.

But he didn't kill you.

He let you live.

Leave Suruga...

Leave Suruga!

Is that clear?

TSUTSUJIGASAKI PALACE, KAI

Young Lord.

What is it?

Yamamoto Kansuke may not come back.

Did you fail to tame him?

Who would've thought Kushima
would stage an internal strife?

Which means...

It was a mistake on my part
to send that ronin to Suruga,

when he knew about the secret
communication with the Takeda.

If this should hurt the clan,
I cannot go on living.

My father wouldn't be killed
by a single ronin.

Don't worry about it.

What can that ronin possibly do?

ZENTOKU-JI, FUJI-GUN

Sessai, did you know that Kushima
sent a secret messenger to Kai?

Yes.

Do you have a spy among the Takeda?

Not a spy. I am just close
to a certain person.

Through him, I am able to find
out the details on the Takeda.

I'm glad I had you come to Suruga.

Do not worry, Mother.

Have you gotten some key Takeda
vassals to switch sides?

Mother, not just the vassals,
but the Takeda clan itself.

Stop!

The enemy is here!

Get them!

Hurry!

Kansuke!

How did you get that?

I was attacked by an assassin.

Thanks to this, I gained
the Imagawa's trust.

I may be able to successfully
infiltrate the clan.

Are you going to be a vassal?

No, they have no lord now.

So I'll be a ronin that
is working for them.

Don't forget that you are Sir Itagaki's spy.

Move away.

Baigaku Shoho, who is
supported by Jukei-ni,

is at Zentoku-ji Temple in Fuji-gun.

A priest named Sessai is his guardian.

I'm sure the Takeda already know that.

Sir Itagaki was worried...

Since the Lord of Suruga died after you left.

I would imagine so.

Kansuke, let's go to Kai already.

Sir Itagaki has nothing
more to hear from you.

Let's go to Kai together.

If I side with the Imagawa now,

I may have a chance to crush the Takeda.

Are you still saying that?

Densuke!

That's right, your name
has changed to Denbei.

Thanks to Mitsu, we can
eat foods like these.

Be grateful for it!

I know that, but...

That's all you need to know to eat.

Kansuke, remember what
the Young Lord said?

You can get your revenge,
but you'll still be a ronin.

That won't make Mitsu happy!

Without ambition, your
revenge will mean nothing.

JIRIN-JI, KAI PROVINCE

Are you suggesting that
Harunobu takes a wife?

Yes.

Is there a suitable maiden
within the Imagawa clan?

No. Lady Jukei-ni would like to
arrange the marriage for him

with a noble princess in Kyoto.

A noble princess?

Yes.

Isn't Lady Jukei-ni from a noble family?

Yes, she's from the Nakamikado family.

For Harunobu's bride,

she is thinking of the princess
from Sanjo Kinyori's family.

The Sanjo family is very distinguished.

Yes.

Sanjo Kinyori is very happy
about this marriage arrangement.

Will this marriage... serve as a
peace treaty with the Imagawa?

That princess' older sister is married to
Kanrei (Deputy Shogun) Hosokawa Harumoto.

The Takeda, with such
marriage relations,

wouldn't be seen as an
enemy by the Imagawa.

At a temple in Gunnai,

Oyamada arranged a meeting
between the lord and Sessai?

Why?

I see... so Lord Nobutora
was drooling after all.

Shoho, isn't the alliance we're making with the
Takeda temporary to prevent Kushima's treason?

Mother, are we going to
free our tamed tiger?

Then...

The alliance with the
Takeda won't hurt us,

even after Young Lord Shoho
succeeds as heir.

Oh yes, there will be a problem.

The Hojo won't stand for it.

Mother, we can't be bothered
by their relationship with Father.

The Hojo in Sagami are engaged
in battle with the Shogun

and his relatives in Kanto.

They're in no position to expand to Suruga.

Sagami is like a turtle with
a heavy shell called Kanto.

We shouldn't lose our calm and bite
at the country bumpkins of Kai.

Ujiyasu, the heir of the
Hojo family in Sagami,

was married to a woman
from the Imagawa family.

Ujiyasu, I won't allow you to go to Suruga.

Yes, I know.

If we, father and son, get involved
in a strife involving neighboring

provinces, we will become the
country's laughing stock.

I don't agree with that.

The Imagawa look down on us
as if we're their vassals.

We can't have that "octopus"
suck on us anymore.

Mother, I'll have to kill Sadahisa.
Please forgive me.

Brother! Please stop!

No, tell me who ridiculed you!

Tell me!

It's all right. Please drop it!

Then stop crying!

If you cry about it,
then I can't ignore it!

Stop crying!

Be strong. You must be strong, Gensuke!

Be strong... and grow up
into a fine samurai.

Yes!

Gensuke.

My name is Kansuke.

Brother!

Kushima has no chance of victory.

The army in Sunpu is waiting
for the Takeda to invade.

You have only one way to win.

What is that?

If you're willing to switch
sides, I will help you.

Brother...

HANAGURA CASTLE

This is my first time invading a castle.

Doesn't it excite you?

Though we are attacking
their castle this time,

the enemy is not Kushima,
but the Takeda reinforcements.

If the reinforcements should
arrive from the Takeda,

a flag will go up on Mt. Takane.

The Kushima army will take that
as an opportunity to evacuate

the castle at once and invade us
to throw us into confusion.

The Takeda plans to attack from behind.

The infamous cavaliers of the Takeda clan...

That makes it even more exciting.

The pivot of the decisive
battle is the Takeda.

On May 25th, 1536,

war flames went up in Sunpu Castle
Town early in the morning.

It was Kushima's warning of a battle.

In response to this, the armies
of Ihara Awa of Sunpu

and Okabe Sakyonoshin left
Hanagura to go to battle.

On the same day, the reinforcements
from Hojo also entered Suruga.

Thus, the Kushima forces
holed up in Hanagura Castle

and waited for the reinforcements
from the Takeda to come.

This is the infamous Hanagura Revolt.

Reporting!

The Hojo soldiers have crossed the border.

They number about 3,000.

However, Lords Ujitsuna and Ujiyasu
are not participating in the battle.

MT. TAKANE

Nobutora...

TSUTSUJIGASAKI PALACE, KAI

If Kushima should win, he'll receive
a huge stipend increase.

Then, the Maejima family
will be secure, too.

We will not go to battle.

If I may humbly speak...

Why aren't we going to battle?

Are you breaking your promise with Kushima?

We ordered Maejima to prepare for battle.

Lord...

We will not go to battle.

HOJO CLAN VASSAL,
AOKI DAIZEN

MAEJIMA RESIDENCE, KAI

Why?

Why isn't the lord ordering us
to go to battle?

Why...

Isn't the flag up yet at Mt. Takane?

Hikojuro, calm down.

IHARA CAMP

Not coming?

The reinforcements from
the Takeda aren't coming?

I don't know why, but...
that's what Sessai said.

Sessai?

The Takeda aren't coming?

When Kushima hears that,
he'll surrender the castle.

Nobutora isn't coming?

I can't wait any longer!
What are the Takeda doing?

Echizen, why aren't the
Takeda making any moves?

I get it!

Nobutora plans to break
his promise with us.

That country bumpkin of Kai!

Sadahisa, what's the matter?

Forgive me.

I knew who was in secret
contact with the Takeda.

Sir Yamamoto!

I hesitated in killing him...

...because he's my younger brother.

Please forgive me.

Sadahisa...

I was prepared for this.

It was the Takeda who betrayed us!

I'm glad it wasn't you.

Lord...!

This is it!

Men! Are you prepared?

Fire!

Everyone! Push them back!

Escape through the rear gate!

Rear gate...

Mother!

Mother!

Escape... Don't let the
Kushima bloodline die...

Mother!

Father! Please escape!

Hikojuro!

I can handle him myself!
Please escape!

Sir Hikojuro, please escape!

Hurry!

I appreciate it, Yamamoto!

Be strong... Be strong, Gensuke!

Yes!

You've become strong, Gensuke.

Enough!

It's over.

Brother...

The Yamamoto family
went down with that castle.

Our father...

Gensuke

...served Kushima, thinking Kushima
was a proud Imagawa vassal.

Lord Ujiteru was too young.

He didn't take Kushima seriously.

Who would've thought
it would come to this?

Do you think my wife escaped safely?

She's probably dead, isn't she?

Gensuke... I mean Kansuke.

I have no children...

...so inherit the Yamamoto family.

Your wish has now come true.

Brother...

Please escape!

I am not an Imagawa vassal,
I'm just a ronin.

Please escape while you can.

It's all right.
I've lived long enough.

Brother!

Don't be so soft!

Kansuke!

I was prepared for this!

Brother...!

Don't cry!

Mother will be sad in the
other world if you kill me.

I'll die here.

Kansuke, assist me.

Kansuke, listen to me.
You must survive.

Brother!

Kansuke...!

Mitsu... there won't be
any flowers to pick...

I didn't kill another man...
I killed myself.

Sadahisa protected the
Yamamoto family...

Kansuke succeeded the Yamamoto
family, deep at heart...

Episode 5:
SURUGA REBELLION
The End

PREVIEW OF NEXT EPISODE

Only the Young Lord
can defeat the Takeda!

Takeda?

Kill anyone that gets in your way
and burn down the mansion!

Kai and Suruga negotiated peace?

It's dangerous to
believe such things.

I will marry him.

It's important to Kai!

I, Yamamoto Kansuke,
will devote my life to you!

Episode 6: THE ROAD TO EMPLOYMENT

FURIN KAZAN ERA

Hanagura, Fujieda City,
Shizuoka Prefecture.

This is where the Hanagura Revolt involving
the Imagawa succession, took place.

In 1536, the older brother, Genko Etan,
waged war on Baigaku Shoho,

the direct heir, and holed up
in Hanagura Castle.

HENSHO-JI (HENSHOKO-IN)

However, the revolt was
quelled in half a month,

and Genko Etan was defeated.

GENKO ETAN'S GRAVE

Baigaku Shoho, who
succeeded the family,

entered Sunpu and became
known as Imagawa Yoshimoto.

He was close to the nobles
and the shogunate family,

and he built a city like Kyoto.

WOODEN IMAGE OF
IMAGAWA YOSHIMOTO

Yoshimoto will eventually
stand as a big obstacle

to Kansuke and Harunobu,
as a rival.
