Beautiful Young Warrior

A grand romance set in the Heian Period about the younger days of Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Ushiwaka) and Saitou Benkei (Oniwaka), as well as Oniwaka's younger sister Azusa.

This was a time when the Taira Clan was thriving, and when they said "If you aren't a Genji, you're no one." A puppeteer troupe comes to perform on the grounds of the Buddhist temple of Jingo-ji in Kyoto. Among them are the siblings Oniwaka and Azusa.

Oniwaka had entered the priesthood, but because of his humble birth it was a difficult situation, so he returned to secular life and became a bodyguard. Oniwaka is unhappy with the oppression of the Taira Clan, so when he meets Ushiwaka and discernes clearly that he will become a great leader who will overthrow the Taira, Oniwaka decides to throw in his lot with Ushiwaka.

However, Ushiwaka has never felt that he would be able to become strong, so while Oniwaka and Kaison and those around him naively believe in a peace they can make, he decides to become a Genji heir.

After that the only one to trust Ushiwaka is Asuza.

The two have similar backgrounds and are deeply in love, but Azusa realizes that their circumstances have become too different and that they cannot be together.

Then, when he is 16, Ushiwaka accomplishes what he had set his heart on. And on the day he sets out from Hiraizumi, the man at the forefront of Yoshitsune's followers is Benkei....
