PART 1: The Story of HijikataEdit
PART 1: The Story of Hijikata (土方の話)
Kane-san, this place is Hakodate!
In other words, this is where our master--no, our previous master...
Perhaps he could somehow not die and live on instead...
No, that's no good! Did you forget our orders? History is history, for better or for worse.
But Kane-san, you're crying...
PART 2: The Story of OkitaEdit
PART 2: The Story of Okita (沖田の話)
What're you getting all gloomy over? It's annoying.
Because, I mean... in the end, we couldn't come here together with Okita-kun, could we?
I guess~ Well, as much as that person liked a hard-to-use sword like you, he had a weak body, after all.
You're just as "hard-to-use", aren't you?
...Well that's true. Geez, for swords like us, it's a real pain if our master doesn't live a long life...
PART 3: Tarou and JirouEdit
PART 3: Tarou and Jirou (太郎と次郎)
We’re close to our hometown.
Do you plan on offering yourself again?
No. Today, I'm a combat sword after hundreds of years.
Hardly. I aid our master for the sake of attaining peace.
PART 4: Useless ObjectsEdit
PART 4: Useless Objects (無用の長物)
This era was so peaceful.
You're right, it was peaceful. Which meant I wasn't valued highly.
As for me, I didn't even get a chance to prove my worth.
For useless objects such as ourselves to be given a chance here...
PART 5: Swords of GriefEdit
PART 5: Swords of Grief (悲しみの剣たち)
This is where we were burned.
Certainly, here is where we burned.
If only we could do things over...!
You mustn't. If you do, you’ll be no better than our enemies.
Let's believe. In our current master.
PART 6: Master Craftsman of AzuchiEdit
PART 6: Master Craftsman of Azuchi (安土の名工)
It's been a while. Brother.
I'm glad to see you're having fun.
It is the wish of this humble servant of Buddha to become strong enough so that he can laugh off everything.
What will you do when you become strong?
Well, by the time that happens the war will already be over. Kakaka, maybe I'll go back to being a work of art.
PART 7: The Sword of ImagawaEdit
The Sword of Imagawa (今川の剣)
...This is Okehazama. In other words, after this I'll be imprisoned by the Demon King. When I think of that...
I see... will these sorrowful memories never heal, I wonder?
...I don't know. Whether I would have been happier being a sword of Imagawa to the end.
So many things have happened... that I don't know anymore...
PART 8: The Story of YoshitsuneEdit
PART 8: The Story of Yoshitsune (義経の話)
This place... is it Atsukashiyama?
That’s right. This is where we met our fates!
The people who killed my previous master are already dead.
They are, as they should be.
While I’m here, maybe I can save my previous master.
Why can’t we change history?
…Even through sad times, we must continue onward.
PART 9: The Path to Becoming a Divine SwordEdit
PART 9: The Path to Becoming a Divine Sword (神剣までの道)
I wonder why I can't become a divine sword.
You killed a child, despite it being a ghost.
As I thought, that's the reason, huh?
Just kidding. Maybe things will be different in a few hundred years.
PART 10: Why There’s So Many ToushirousEdit
PART 10: Why There’s So Many Toushirous (藤四郎だらけなのは)
Big brother, why do we have so many siblings?
Isn't that obvious? It's because we served Lord Ieyasu. They say that we bring good fortune, so all the feudal lords wanted to possess a Toushirou.
So we're like good luck charms!
Thanks to that, we got a load of impostors as well.
Don't get all teary. It's not like you're an impostor anyway.
