(English Subtitled)

Born as the daughter of a gunnery mentor in the Aizu clan in 1845, Yae grows up to be a strong-minded girl with a competitive spirit who often is quite a handful even for her parents.

Yae holds admiration for her elder brother, Kakuma, who is excellent in both literary and military arts. Witnessing Kakuma's splendid shooting with a gun, Yae becomes captivated by the art of gunnery, however, her father Gonpachi disapproves and scolds her severely.

In the fall of 1851, Yae interrupts an important military training of the Aizu clan which causes an incident; Yae is rescued though by Katamori Matsudaira, the head of the Aizu clan.

Her encounter with Katamori changes her life later on.
