Look after things for me.
Don't worry. It's no big deal.
I'll be back very soon.
So until then, please protect our friends,
protect everyone, for me.

“My Lord, that wasn’t the end of the samurai. While many samurai threw away their swords after losing their leaders, some were plotting to rescue one of those captive leaders. They were these men, the ones known as the last samurai. They were the students of the evil criminal who dared to oppose the heavens, Yoshida Shoyo. His students took up their swords to rescue their teacher. Do you recall that name, my Lord?”
“Yoshida Shoyo… Was there such a person? Do you think I remember the corpses of every worm I stomped on my way to power? If he happened to be a major criminal, I might remember him. What was his crime?”
“Actually, I can’t recall either. I do remember that he taught sword and pen to some children in the country.”
“That was it?”
“However, my Lord, we were told to crush such gatherings as they might foment rebellion.”
“I see. And I was correct to order that. Yoshida Shoyo… His crime was creating dissenters like him.”
