Bunshiro was the son of Sukezaemon, a low-ranking samurai. After seeing his father help save the village rice fields from flooding, Bunshiro resolved to be just like him. His father, though, was unjustly put in prison. Bunshiro didn’t know what the future would bring: the death of his father, parting with Fuku, struggles within the clan.
