“ - I won’t forgive you. Unless you come back alive, I won’t forgive you. Please come back to Earth, and report to my elder brother in front of his grave with me. Report to him… that we protected Edo. Cause if you do’t I’ll never forgive you.”
I just want to hear Kagami speak with the classic Edo prostitute accent.
Aomine held his breath when he turned to face his guest. The golden embellishments on the silk garment wholly wrapped around the other man’s broad shoulders, and the scarlet obi enveloping his waist accentuated the man’s beautifully fit but slender silhouette.
As the kagema carefully kneeled and bowed his head to the floor, Aomine admired the long eyelashes that so gracefully fluttered underneath those reddish black bangs. He felt his throat dry up, and lust fill in his eyes the instance he locked his gaze on his prey.
The fair-skinned man looked up to meet Aomine’s alluring eyes. “’Tis Kagami Taiga, Sir. I am here to serve my liege this evening.”
Aomine stretched his arm to grab Kagami’s wrist, gave it a strong tug to bring him sprawling across the tatami mat, and hovered over his body.
“Took you damn long enough. You’ll have to entertain me all night for this.“
Kagami knowingly smiled, and gently caressed Aomine’s face. “What thy wisheth is my command…. my good Lord Aomine.”
Kagami is a kabuki actor in year 1690, Genroku Era of Edo period, and Aomine is the samurai of the Tokugawa bakufu (government of the shogun). Apparently, kabuki actors also served as male prostitutes (kagema). Anyway this is embarrassing, and I can’t write. Sorry, I suck!!!! Inspiration: yoshiwara lament, Gintama (haha), kuro
On this day in 1828, the famous Japanese samurai warrior Saigō Takamori was born in Kagoshima. He has often been called ‘the last samurai’. He went on to lead troops of the Satsuma region as they fought their rivals Chōshū. He opposed the opening and modernising of Japan in the Meiji Restoration of 1868, and the ruling Tokugawa Bakufu. He was a leader of the 1877 Satsuma Rebellion against the Meiji Government. Takamori was the basis for Ken Watanabe’s character in the 2003 film ‘The Last Samurai’.

Libellé : photo 1 : départ de Edo 江戸 Gifs : “Les 53 relais
du Tōkaidō” Photo 2 : arrivée à Kyōto 京都 Photo 3 : carte relative au parcours
Sous le Tokugawa bakufu 徳川幕府 (1603 à 1867) [shōgunat
Tokugawa], la ville d'Edo 江戸 est devenue la capitale et d'importants travaux
d'amélioration de la route
de Tōkaidō 東海道 sont réalisés mais, surtout, l'institutionnalisation
du système de circulation et de son contrôle est rigoureusement instaurée. La
route relie alors Edo (à partir du Nihonbashi 日本橋) et Kyōto (jusqu'au pont de Sanjō-Ōhashi 三条大橋 , “le pont de la
troisième rue”, en 53 étapes selon un
parcours de 487 km
qui peut durer 12 à 14 jours si les conditions météorologiques sont optimales.
La plupart du temps les voyageurs la parcourent à pied, mais aussi à
cheval, en chaise à porteurs ou en palanquin, selon leur aisance financière.

The latest situation i pretty much like the one in this picture.
As for Tendoshuu using the Tokugawa bakufu as a puppet, is something that somehow comes and go. That’s because they left thing like the administration of the country and the joui patriots situation to the government. But terrorists are not the only one that wants to take away the authoriry from Tokugawa Shigeshige, inside the bakufu there are secret factions conplotting in favour of Hitotsubashi Nobunobu and the rise of the Hitotsubashi faction. In all this we have to stress the connection between the Kiheitai’s Takasugi Shinsuke and an important element of the Hitotsubashi faction, the Chief of the Minawarigumi, Sasaki Isaburo, that are joining hands against the current political administration. And at the same time, Takasugi, to take even more power is in contact with the largest criminal syndacate in the universe, the space pirates Harusame.
