Then Nariakira visits him and hands a gun to him. In the gun, only one bullet id loaded. Nariakira pulls the trigger first but there is nothing. Narioki receives it from his son but he cannot hold it because of fear. He gives up this "Russian roulette" and Nariakira becomes a new lord of Satsuma domain.
