Story

“When the Last Sword Is Drawn”

Jiro Asada’s best seller, “When the Last Sword Is Drawn” was a great success on TV in 2002 and on the big screen in 2003. Finally, it will appear on the stage of Takarazuka Revue!
At the end of the Samurai era, in the mid 19th century, Yoshimura Kanichiro born as a lower samurai in the Nambu clan (Iwate prefecture) leaves his wife, Shizu, and joins the shogunate police and military force known as the Shinsengumi in Kyoto to save his family from poverty. This calm and simple samurai is actually a master of a famed school of swordsmanship called Hokushin Itto-ryu. In spite of his natural inclination, he carries out dangerous missions and assassinates many people to earn money for his family in his hometown of Morioka. However, the course of history is against them, and the Shinsengumi loses the fight of Toba-Fushimi. While the members run away, the injured Kanichiro visits the consulate of Nambu clan in Osaka to obtain admission to go back to his hometown. There he encounters his best friend from childhood, Ono Jiroemon, who was promoted to an important position there...
Many works about the Shinsengumi have appeared on the stage of Takarazuka Revue; however, this is a story from a different point of view. The principal role is a local samurai, Yoshimura Kanichiro whose ability is recognized by brilliant members of Shinsengumi such as Kondo Isami, Hijikata Toshizo, Saito Hajime and Okita Soji. The snow troupe, lead by Futo Nozomi, brings to life this moving human drama with themes of loyalty as a samurai, love for family and friendship.
