The Trusted Confidant (2007–…): Season 1, Episode 9 - Kansuke utareru - full transcript

In winter of 1536, Takeda Nobutora
attacked Unnokuchi Castle

as his first step for invading
Shinano Province,

but was met with unexpected
resistance, led by Kansuke.

I'm withdrawing the troops.

Meanwhile, Harunobu, who
volunteered to bring up the rear...

We are heading back to Unnokuchi.

UNNOKUCHI CASTLE

Harunobu, who caught the enemy
by surprise, captured the castle

with 300 men, when Nobutora
couldn't do it with his army of 8,000.

And Kansuke ends up confronting
Harunobu once again.

I didn't capture this castle to please my father.



Then, why?

Why did you do it then?!

"Swift as the wind"

"Silent as the forest"

"Conquer like the fire"

"Unmovable as the mountain"

For my father's sake, I am giving him
a reason to condemn my stupidity.

It is not necessary to act
like a fool anymore.

The lord couldn't capture this castle,
after trying for over a month.

But you did it in a couple of hours.

As long as you know that, that's fine.

Itagaki!

I think of you as my father.

Please do not be mistaken.

Young Lord, you are the lord's heir.

You are the heir for the Takeda clan in Kai Province.

That is why more so...

I...

...do not want to be killed by my father.

Young Lord!

These are the Hiraga soldiers
that we've captured alive.

The roof!

Kansuke!

Yamamoto Kansuke...

Young Lord of Kai...

It's been a long time.

What a strange place to meet.

Your method of capturing the
castle was magnificent!

I shall kill you myself.

Wait!

Young Lord, he used to be
my vassal before.

Therefore, I'll dispose of him.

It was my order to keep alive the
soldiers who have submitted.

But...

If you kill him, we'll have to kill the others.

He's a fake strategist!

He claimed to be a strategist,
to become a guest to deceive our lord.

He's the one who devised all the strategies.

Was it really you, who devised them?

Answer me.

Withdraw your sword!

Young Lord!

Withdraw!

I'll punish him.

No, Young Lord!

Don't meddle, Itagaki.

Withdraw your sword.

I said, withdraw!

This will be my first time killing someone.

Do you still hate my father?

Yes.

Can't you become a vassal of the Takeda?

Young Lord, I will resist with
my life on employing him.

To anger Itagaki to that point...

You must be some man.

Ready?

I've taken the head of the fake
strategist, Yamamoto Kansuke!

Leave the body there!

Men, let us raise our shouts of victory!

We've won!

We're withdrawing.

We're withdrawing!

Kill me!

At this rate, I'll be a living disgrace.

Go to hell on your own.

TSUTSUJIGASAKI PALACE, KAI

Itagaki, what were you doing?

Did Hiraga send pursuers?

No.

Then explain your tardiness.

Because my men captured Unnokuchi Castle.

What?

Is that true?

Yes, it is true.

Lord, the credit goes to the
Young Lord's great strategy.

Sir Harunobu did it alone?

The Young Lord came up with the
strategy to capture the castle?

We launched a surprise attack on Unnokuchi Castle,

and captured it within a couple of hours.

What about Hiraga's head?

We took it.

Where is Hiraga's head?

We buried it at Wakamiko.

What? Buried it?

You disposed of it without showing it to me?

I gave him a warm burial.

Who did you leave at the castle?

No one.

No one?

Yes. I left it open.

Itagaki, how could you allow that?

If I may humbly speak up...

If I may humbly speak up!

I ignored Itagaki's advice and did as I wished!

The attack on the castle wasn't something you ordered.

I only did it as the rear guard
to prevent any pursuers.

After I completed my duty, I thought
I should withdraw immediately.

Fool! That's nonsense!

Weren't you afraid of the enemy's reinforcements?

Didn't you attack right after
the reinforcements withdrew?

So you were afraid that they would
come back to the castle and attack.

Am I wrong?

After you take a castle, you must defend it.

You should've sent a messenger
to seek further orders.

Why didn't you do that, coward?!

Lord!

I am honored.

You've taken my poor battle skills so seriously.

I am truly honored.

But I only followed your daily teachings.

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

"Even though you are competent, appear incompetent."

"It is ability to show inability."

"Attack him where he is unprepared,
appear where you are not expected."

I've learned this all from you.

I will not take your reprimanding
lightly, as the Takeda heir.

I will keep your words at heart.

Kansuke, how far are you going?

Where are you headed?

Kansuke!

Go home.

Tell Sir Sanada that I was killed
in that mountain castle.

Don't be stupid!
You're alive!

I've lost...

I've lost!

Heizo, farewell.
Take care of yourself.

Kansuke!

Kansuke!

I've taken the head of the fake
strategist, Yamamoto Kansuke!

SUWA, SHINANO PROVINCE

Hisa, don't go too close.

Is he dead?

Mitsu...

Mizu (water)?
Do you want water?

I've never seen him around before.

HISA

Father, he has a high fever.

The god of Suwa might've led us
to him. We must save him.

Hey! Are you all right?
Pull yourself together.

What is this?

In February of 1537, Nobutora
married his eldest daughter to

Imagawa Yoshimoto in Suruga, thus
bonding Kai and Suruga tightly.

And his third daughter, Nene, was
engaged to Suwa Yorishige in Shinano.

We advance to autumn in 1540.

Between Harunobu and Lady Sanjo,
was a son named Taro,

who would later be known as Yoshinobu.

Sister...

Nene!

Aren't you going soon?

Yes, I'll be going to Suwa soon.

Suwa Yorishige became lord just last year.

But I hear he's deeply respected
by his vassals and people.

You won't have hardships there.

Here.

Thank you.

This should strengthen the bond
between Kai and Suwa even more.

You are the bridge between the two families.

We couldn't be happier for you.

But Harunobu and your mother
will miss you greatly.

I am not her real daughter.

I am the daughter of a concubine.

My natural mother isn't alive.

But Mother treated me well,
as if I were her real daughter.

So has my brother, Harunobu.

Father!

Taro!

Nene, when you get married...
Take this with you.

What is this?

Marici (god of war).

It'll protect you from all dangers,
just as well as the god of Suwa.

Brother...

I'm sure there'll be a day when Father
will understand you, like Marici.

Don't worry about me.

Live with a strong heart.

You, too.

NOVEMBER, 1540
SUWA

Nene married Suwa Yorishige in November.

On December 17th, Nobutora visited
his son-in-law, Suwa Yorishige.

UEHARA CASTLE, SUWA

Father, I am very honored to have you in Suwa.

Thank you for your considerate hospitality.

Nene, have you been in good health?

Yes, I am happy here.

I see. I'm glad to hear that.

You should be blessed with a child soon then.

Lord, the princess is here.

Father, please meet my daughter.

That's right... you had a daughter, didn't you?

I am Yu. Pleased to meet you.

Princess Yu...

Is something wrong?

Her exceptional beauty made my heart pounce.

Princess Yu was Yorishige's
daughter by a concubine.

She will be faced with a hard life later.

Miss Hisa...

What's wrong? You didn't get
to shoot the Lord of Kai?

Isn't it your dream to shoot Nobutora?

So I thought you would.

Miss Hisa, you shouldn't talk to me here.

Why?

You are a maiden before marriage.

Are you going to attack me?

That's interesting!
Come at me!

Miss Hisa... You are taking your joke too far.

Heizo, you are an interesting man.

That is all there is to it.

For the woman you love...

You are trying to take on the
Lord of Kai, all by yourself.

But that woman didn't even love you.

You are truly interesting.

Now, I want to stay in Suwa to do
whatever I can for you and your father.

Is that true?

If it weren't for you two, I'd be dead by now.

It was the god of Suwa that saved you.

So you needn't feel obliged to us.

But if you will stay...
The horses will be happy.

Now that we are related,
you need not hold back with me.

Speak your mind.

Aren't you bothered by the
Takeda's invasion of Saku?

I'm going to conquer Chiisagata next year.

Father...

But it won't be with just the Takeda force.

How about participating in it with
Murakami Yoshikiyo in the north?

Then we'll be able to crush
the enemies in Chiisagata

and Saku all at once.

Because of that ambition I have...

I think Nene has brought
a very good bond to me.

Nene is a truly good wife.

But I feel insecure just leaving
Nene in your hands.

Are you telling me to offer a hostage from Suwa?

If that hostage is Princess Yu...

Then the bond between Takeda
and Suwa will be solid.

When the soldiers are dispatched
to Chiisagata next year...

There should be new negotiations for peace.

We'll have to ring the sacred bell of Suwa Shrine.

Princess Yu will surely give out a beautiful tone.

It was an order to offer
Princess Yu as his concubine.

NEW YEAR'S DAY, 1541

Nobushige.

Come closer.

At the seating for the New Year's celebration,

Nobutora gave his saké cup to
Nobushige, Harunobu's younger brother.

It was an indication of his intent
to let Nobushige succeed him.

Harunobu.

Imagawa Yoshimoto of Suruga
is three years older than you.

But he became lord at an age younger than you,

and is governing his province finely.

You have a lot to learn from him.

Yes. I understand very well.

Would you like to go to Suruga for a while?

You should learn some etiquette from Yoshimoto,

as well as useful strategies.

What is the matter?

Bring me saké.

That year, Kai suffered the worst famine ever.

Young Lord, what are you doing here?

I felt like seeing Kai Province's
greatest enemy.

Greatest enemy?

This river.

Flood damage?

The people are suffering
from starvation because of it.

Truly... the flood damage
is a terrible fate of Kai's.

There is no such thing as fate.

There is only nature.

The best of men are like water.

Water is extremely flexible.

It doesn't resist nature and flows downward.

But when it bares its fangs, it has
the power to crush any obstacles.

If you let it grow too violent,
you'll be devastated by the flood.

Father is like a flood to Kai.

Young Lord...

If he dispatches troops to Shinano
at a time like this...

The farmers and ji-samurai who will
be drafted for it will be angry.

They might raise a riot.

I must take measures for it before it happens.

I... am going to rise against my father.

Young Lord!

Are you joking?

No, I'm not joking!

If I keep silent, I will be chased out of Kai.

I'll intercept the raging waters,
and change the direction of the flow.

Itagaki...

Will you follow me or my father?

You must make a choice.

If you aren't going to follow me...

Kill me on the spot.

Kill me!

After I dispatch the troops to Chiisagata,

I'll be sending Harunobu to Suruga.
Let that be clear to you.

Suruga will be a better place
than Kai for Lady Sanjo and Taro.

I'll make sure they are well taken care of.

I would like to renounce the world.

Both Harunobu and Nobushige
are my precious sons.

I do not wish to see them fight.

Didn't your father renounce the world, too?

Your father, who was defeated by me
and had lost his daughter to me,

strongly resembles Harunobu, who is
engrossed in his studies and poetries.

Isn't this the result of your
raising Harunobu as an Oi man?

You raised him tenderly, hoping to
have him grab Kai from me someday.

You tried to avenge your father, through him.

Am I not right?

You are a frightening woman.

But that's what I've always loved about you.

Harunobu does not resemble my father.

My father lost to you.

SUNPU

Under the orders of Itagaki, Denbei
secretly departed for Sunpu

to deliver a letter to Sessai, the
strategist for Imagawa Yoshimoto.

Kansuke!

Kansuke...

Kansuke was living meaninglessly in Suruga.

Harunobu's storm of revolt
was approaching Kansuke.

Episode 9:
KANSUKE'S DEATH
The End

PREVIEW OF NEXT EPISODE

You must live!

I'm going to banish my father.

What did you just say?

We've protected the lord until now.

Will the vassals remain loyal to
Harunobu, who stole the reign?

Is he trying to scare us?

I will kill Sir Harunobu.

Takeda Harunobu...

Episode 10: HARUNOBU COMMITS TREASON

FURIN KAZAN ERA

Suwa is Princess Yu's homeland.

The upper and lower shrines of Suwa
Grand Shrine surround Lake Suwa.

The Suwa family governed the priests for
the Suwa Grand Shrine for many generations.

center wing of the Uehara Castle,

the mountain castle which was
Lord Suwa's main castle.

Ryukozan Kannon-in, which is
