Series premise: The age is the Warring States period, when many officers hold the dream of uniting the country. Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a man who has that goal right in front of his eyes, brings his protege and supreme commander Ishida Mitsunari along with a large army to surround Odawara Castle, which protects Ujiyasu Hōjō. However, the castle does not fall so easily, and nearly three months pass. Even many of the generals that gather at Mitsunari’s side suggest breaking the stale-mate. Within the arguments of the generals, the single general who rushes to the scene to penetrate an opening in the castle is Sanada Yukimura. His elder brother, Sanada Nobuyuki, chases after him. Betting on Hideyoshi’s conquest, the Sanada brothers clash with Hōjō!
