Heartwarming: The Hagakure
- Denko the buddhist monk gets his hands on a sword to kill the man who murdered his mother, nephew and younger brother. Unfortunately, his order banishes him for breaking his oath and he's forced to forsake monkhood... but that doesn't stop his old parishioners from protecting him, travelling with him as he leaves town. They knew that killing two men who were the son of a ronin and had connections with local samurai might have triggered a violent retaliation, but they stuck by the monk regardless. Tsunetomo notes he lived the rest of his life peacefully, warmly received as a hero in every town he visited. The story had circulated everywhere.
- Continuing from Crowning Moment of Awesome, Yohei was ordered to commit seppuku for appointing a pointless duel that led to the death of two samurai. Jinku was spared from this. The two shared a toast of wine together before the appointed execution.
