" I am Haruto, let me come with you to the village."
During the Japanese Sengoku period, Itsuki and Sora was born, their father was a samurai so Itsuki and Sora wanted become a samurai too. 14 years later the village was attacked by the enemies clan, people were killed (including their parents) and the village was taken over. Itsuki was able to escape, but Sora was captured.
"Meet me back here when you find Sora."
"I am here to rescue you."
Itsuki went to his allies village and he was found by a guard who took him into the emperor. The emperor gave Itsuki a deal, if Itsuki is able to steal a document from the enemies village the emperor will provide Itsuki with food and shelter for the rest of his life. Itsuki agreed to the deal because he thought he could save his brother.
"We do not know where Haruto is."
"He was killed when your village was attacked."
Right when Itsuki was about to leave the village he met a younger boy named Haruto. Haruto said he is one of the survivors just like Itsuki and that he wanted to go back to their village again, so Itsuki agreed take him with him.
Itsuki and Haruto finally got to the village and they had a plan. Itsuki was going to go get the document and Haruto was going to look for Sora.
Itsuki successfully stole the document and Haruto was able to save Sora. While walking back to their allies village, Itsuki and Sora realized that Haruto was gone. After the brothers got back to the village, Itsuki told the emperor about Haruto and the emperor told Itsuki that Haruto died awhile ago.
After Itsuki gave the emperor the document the emperor gave him a small home and stocked him up with food. Itsuki and Sora decided to pursue their dreams as being a samurai. The theme is always be willing to take a risk.
