According to "Kitsutsuki Senpō" (Operation Woodpecker), TAKEDA Shingen sends detached forces to Mt. Saijo where UESUGI Masatora is based to attack his army and make it climb down the mountain to a plain called Hachimanpara.

Both Nobushige and MOROZUMI Torasada attack their enemy to gain time and are killed. Kansuke accepts his failure and remembers that Ōi-Fujin told him that he is a sad man by nature because he said if Buddha appears now, he will take up arms also.

So Yoshinobu returns to the headquarter and Kansuke asks him to take care of Katsuyori (*). He remembers the words of AMARI Torayasu, "You should know what you gain and what you lose" and those of ITAGAKI Nobukata, "Be a real strategist and support Harunobu (Shingen)".

実は『いだてん~東京オリムピック噺~』を観なくなったので、再び『西郷どん』復習の投稿をアップしています。関連文献もまた読もうかと考えていますし、BSで再放送中の『葵 徳川三代』の再放送も観ています。そしてパペットホームズの続編ですが、これは是非とも三谷氏にお願いしたいところです。

他にも国内外の文化や歴史、『相棒』をはじめとする刑事ドラマについても、時々思い出したように書いています。ラグビー関連も週1またはそれ以上でアップしています。2019年、いよいよ日本でのワールドカップの年です。今季は代表下部チームとの兼ね合いもあり、スーパーラグビーでは今一つでしたが、ワールドカップでのベスト8成るでしょうか。
