|←||Chapter 2 →|
The Iga Tsubagakure and Kouga Manjidani clans are at a meeting with Ieyasu Tokugawa in Sunpu. After a brief display of their skills the ninja are called over and told of the plan to break Hanzo the 1st's treaty, allowing the Iga and Kouga to kill one another. The reason is to settle a dispute over who should replace Hidetada as the next shogun. The Iga are to represent Takechiyo while the Kouga represent Kunichiyo. The names of the 10 best ninja from each clan are written on two scrolls and sent away with the representatives Yashamaru and Shougen, who head to their respective clans home. Unbeknownst to Yashamaru Danjou steals his scroll as he runs past.
Later Ogen and Danjou have a short talk before beginning the war with Danjou spitting a needle through Ogen's throat. He is then distracted by Ogen's hawk, allowing Ogen to stab him with his own needle. He dies and Ogen scores there names of the scroll before dying herself. Her hawk takes the scroll back to Iga and far away Gennosuke Kouga and Oboro are together, unaware of the events to come.
