NHK: "The historical drama for 2013 is the life story of Yae Yamamoto, a woman born to a family belonging to the Aizu clan in Fukushima Prefecture in the late Edo Period, who later becomes known as Yae Niijima. Yae keeps exploring her potential all her life with the samurai spirits passed down in Aizu people, while bravely living through the age of turmoil, readied as a soldier armed with a gun."

In Kyoto, the Aizu clan is under threat of attacks from the Choshu clan. In Aizu, Yae's younger brother Saburo suddenly declares to enlist as a member of the troops sent to Kyoto, which infuriates Gompachi. Around the same time in Kyoto, Shozan is assassinated by the antiforeigner masterless samurai and Kakuma is struck with deep grief. Kakuma also learns that Choshu is seeking the life of Katamori, and feeds rage against them.

In July 1864, the Choshu clan launches attacks on the Imperial Palace--the outbreak of the Hamaguri Gate Rebellion. The shogunate's army led by Yoshinobu and Katamori manages to win the fierce battle against Choshu, thanks to the efforts made by Kakuma and Okura, and with the help of the Satsuma clan. Kakuma, however, is seriously wounded in his eyes in the battle. In Aizu, Yae is ambivalent about her marriage to Shonosuke, which was suggested by Kakuma just before the outbreak of the rebellion.
