Fūrin Kazan 46 Kantō Shuppei (Kagetora Attempts to Conquer Kantō Region)

Shirō celebrates his genpuku and calls himself SUWA Katsuyori. And in Echigo, it has been decided that NAGAO Kagetora takes over the head of the Uesugi clan and has engaged in the duty of Kantō Kanrei. Because of that, he should conquer Kantō region and attacks on the Hojo clan. Then TAKEDA Harunobu has to stop him from controlling the rulers in Shinano and then he prepares for constructing a new castle around Kawanakajima for the battle against Kagetora.

However, Harunobu should consider who will succeed him if this battle drags on. Most of his victories owe to the stratagem of Kansuke but there is a possibility that Harunobu will ruin himself by it, on the contrary. And on the 29th of August 1560, Kagetora invades Kantō region and occupies Mayahashi Castle.

However, he cannot take Odawara Castle in three days as he planned as the castle is strong. Besides Ujiyasu orders his supporters block the route to supply the headquarter of  Kagetora. So Ujiyasu can turn the tables on Kagetora the more the siege is prolonged. On the other hand, Shingen plans to take Warigatake Castle in northern Shinano to sway Kagetora emotionally because it's hard for his ally IMAGAWA Ujizane to dispatch troops. During the attack, Hazuki tells Denbée that she will cause the lord surrender while they hug each other. Then Denbée asks her to marry him after the battle.
