Sign: Takasugi Masakane's Castle
...dono. A letter from the Sawaki clan has arrived.
[They agree to the marriage of Sakura Hime.]
...Is that right...
I can't wait...I can't wait for you...
Chapter 30: Story of the Past ~ Ouka's Chapters ~
...call me Sakura.
I'm ill bred, but I will do anything you bid.
[There's no pain...]
I'm happy you came all this way!
I'm Takasugi Jyuugorou Masakane!!
What is it? You can't change your expression?
Aren't I frightening!? With this ugly face!!
Cry! Crunch up your beautiful face!!
I don't listen to petty orders from bastards like you.
I've paralyzed your vocal cords.
You won't be able to speak.
It's not necessary to introduce myself to a dead man---
I'll take---your life!!!
What do you think you can do here...
Consenting to marriage so easily was suspicious...
You are...a ninja?
An illusion technique!!?
This is Kami, huh...a strange technique.
You as well...are you a ninja?
Who are you!?
Kouga Clan 53rd family, Takamine Kuraudo---
Takasugi-sama hired me to watch for those who would interfere.
I am extremely sorry...
He had a person from Kouga there.
There they are!!
Don't chase them.
As if you could chase them.
Takamine will defeat those ninja in the battle to come!
I should have known the ninja would risk killing me!!
This is war!!
Mobilize the soldiers!! Defeat Sawaki!!
It is reported that Takasugi has mobilized his soldiers!
They number about three thousand!!
It's almost three times the number of our soldiers!
We won't evade this battle.
We will fight back
This is good for Sakura Hime-sama!
[I would risk my life for you...!
You as well...
You're going to war? Ouka!
This war started because of my Hokage's blunder!
I have volunteered myself to fight this war!
This is...The blood of this country's people will flow...
Koheita as well...
Everyone...has smiling faces.
Voices are crying out "Protect Hime-sama"!
They surely love Sakura Hime-sama!
I also like Hime, thus I'm serving you! Happily so!
The Power of the Hokage ninja!!
Kill every person!!
Please don't worry, Sakura Hime-sama---
All of us as one will protect this fort!
...but do...you have to go?
Once we win this battle, Yakata-sama said Hime-sama would be mine!
I will work hard to meet up to his expectations!!
Chapter 231: Story of the Past ~ Ouka's Chapters ~
Takasugi Masakane's army of three thousand!!
This Shimizu Koheita Takamitsu gives you his life---
I will protect you!!
Women, children, everything!!
Making a fool of Takasugi Masakane is a grave sin!! You will die for it!!
This face hurts!! I'll pay back the people of Sawaki many times over for it!!!
(Elder:) In this case, it cannot be connected to the hand of Hokage
(Elder:) Yourself as leader moved and failed, bringing a shameful deed to our name
(Elder:) You will fight alone---
(Elder:) Your responsibility as Hokage ninja is to fix this
I, as well...please let me join you!
The cause of this is from my failure...
Trouble is running about.
Allow us to fight with you!!
[I still think of you as children...]
The enemy is Takasugi's three thousand men!!!
Don't mess up!!
Move it, move it, move it---!!!
Hokage ninja, Ouka Kenzan!!!
Assisting Sawaki clan to justice!!
[...You worry about the lives of peasants, not giving much to spare...]
You're called Hokage...I don't know the name...
I see you use the same fire technique as me---
Teach me the difference!!
The man from Kouga.
...Just like you.
Are you afraid? Are you going to run?
I'll murder you!!
That man and Hime-sama...!!
The wound is...!!
Bring the next wounded person!
I won't, Hime-sama!
You shouldn't use your power like this!!
Everyone, for my sake their blood is flowing...
Of course I should heal their wounds!!
Sorry...I'm sorry everyone...
I can't fight...
I can't do anything like that...
What are you saying, Hime-sama!!
I'm bringing in Shimizu Takamitsu-dono!!
He's severely wounded---!!
Hold on!! Now...I'll heal your wounds
Don't die! You can't die, Koheita!!!
My power is weak...!
I have...one last...request...
That man...in his arms...don't...
Don't speak your last!!
Didn't you promise to marry me!?
I'm sor... ...
