Storyboard Text

  • Introduction
  • Connections
  • Okay, Seikei, focus...
  • Conflict
  • The main character is Seikei. He is the son of a merchant but he wants to become a samurai. He lives in Edo, the headquarters of Japan and practices bow and arrow.
  • Another Conflict
  • Seikei has a strong connection with his teacher, Bunzo, who is teaching him how to be, act, and look like a samurai. On page 3, paragraph 3, it says, "... then, it had looked easy, but the first time Seikei tried it, the arrow wobbled like a leaf falling from a tree," proving that he needs some serious help.
  • Seikei's Strength
  • There is 2 huge conflicts in the story. The first one is when Seikei and his lord, Judge Ooka, went to Yoshiwara to see why a women "drowned herself." "...the women was seated in the lotus position. She clothed in a white shroud that hid even her face. On her lap lay a knife." On page 35, paragraph 2, it's describing how she looks likes.
  • Resolution
  • I think you guys wouldn't have anymore problems.
  • On page 99, paragraph 2 it says, "Just before Seikei reached the teahouse, however, he saw a tongue of flame lick the underside of the porch." The person who set the fire is called a thief. The thief stole Seikeis clothes to make it seem it was him when it wasn't. He tried to tell his teacher and the maid, that he didn't do it but they didn't listen.
  • I did not do it, I swear!
  • One of Seikei's strength, is to discover or finding something out. He is always asking questions, or looking for answers or hints to solve the problem. It is also hard for him to be quiet. And, there is always something happening in his head.
  • Hhmm?
  • On page 169, paragraph 2, it says, "He slid open the door and smoke rushed into the room. Both of them (Seikei and Nui the cleaning girl) started to cough." The fire was started by Suzu ( the one who wanted the thief to start the fire) because she wanted Seikei and Nui to burn so know one will know who wanted the thief to do something like that.
  • YAY!!
