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 1865, Shimeta Niijima, who stowed away on a ship from Hakodate, arrives in Boston. In Kyoto, Satsuma and Choshu secretly form cooperative ties, maneuvered by Ryoma Sakamoto. While Aizu is driven into a difficult position, the condition of Kakuma's eyes is also getting worse. In Aizu, Ura, who can no longer bear her loneliness not having Kakuma home for three years, goes hard on her daughter Mine. One day, a big fire breaks out in Aizu and Mine goes missing.

Saburo finds Mine. Ura, straying around the fire in search for Mine, is also saved by Shonosuke. Seeing Ura risking her life to find Mine, Yae learns the real reason why Ura has become strict with Mine. Ura has steeled herself to raise Mine as a successor of the Yamamoto family, in case something happens to Kakuma. Around the same time in Kyoto, Katamori is about to be relieved of his post as the military governor of Kyoto, which brings joy to the Aizu clan. However, the joy is short-lived as they receive tragic news shortly after.

Due to the sudden passing of Emperor Komei, the Aizu clan lost the opportunity to return to Aizu. Meanwhile in Nagasaki, Kakuma is informed by a Dutch doctor that he will soon lose his eyesight. Despite his devastation, Kakuma makes every effort to obtain new Western-style guns for Aizu. While many of foreign traders refuse to deal with Aizu, German merchant named Lehmann accepts Kakuma's request to buy tons of guns, moved by his passion. Lehmann also gives Kakuma a Spencer repeating rifle as a sign of friendship. Kakuma sends the rifle to Yae who has been eagerly waiting for his return.
