Most viewers assume the movie versions of Mariko and Kenuichio aren't related because their kinship (they're half-siblings in the comics) isn't stated and they were romantically involved at some point. Kenuichio is Shingen's illegitimate son like in the comics but Shingen managed to keep it a secret and plans to use Noburo as a way to separate his children without having to tell the truth.
