Story

“Land of the Gods”

Russia, 1916—The populace, worn down by the ongoing World War, found an outlet for their frustration and grievances with the Romanov dynasty in terrorism across the nation. The momentum for revolution was finally gathering. To make things worse for the falling the Romanov dynasty, a dark rumor was whispered in the imperial capital Petrograd: “Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra (Kira Rinjo) have been manipulated by Rasputin the Mad Monk (Hikaru Aizuki) and driven to misrule.”
Amid this unrest, a farewell party was being held at the now deceased Grand Duke Sergei’s manor house in the suburb of Moscow for the Grand Duke’s nephew, Dmitri Pavlovich Romanov (Manato Asaka). The orphaned Dmitri had been living with his uncle Sergei, but since Sergei died in a terrorist attack, the manor was inhabited only by Dmitri and Sergei’s young widow Irina (Urara Reimi). Dmitri, being an able army officer and a cousin to the emperor, was asked by the imperial family to leave Sergei’s home and come to Petrograd to guard them.
Aving spent a long period at the front lines, Dmitri saw the bleak future ahead for Russia. After losing battle after battle in World War I, the Emperor has now lost the trust of his people. As Dmitri believed that the only way to create a brighter future was to have a Romanov—that is, Dmitri himself—at the war front risking his life in the struggle, he is no pleased with this assignment to the capital. However, Irina, the Emperor’s younger sister expected Dmitri to assist the imperial family and help straighten out the political situation at court. Urged on by Irina, Dmitri heads for Petrograd.
In the imperial palace, the antagonism between the Emperor’s family and Empress dowager Maria (Tsukasa Kotobuki) and her followers, who dislike Rasputin, is heating up. While Dmitri was struggling in his pursuit of the dynasty’s survival, his old friend Prince Felix Yusupov (Suzuho Makaze) approaches him with an astounding plan: assassinate Rasputin and stage a coup d’etat. At the same time, Dmitri is faced with marriage to Princess Olga (Madoka Hoshikaze)... Feeling an ache in his heart when Irina congratulates him on his future marriage, Dmitri gets himself caught up in the great turbulence of history.
