Wow! Wulf-san and Yama-san start this story off by talking about the smallness of a cricket, then move on with the discussion of their leader Nolonyuki who they refer to as Obo-san. They ponder if Obo-san will feel war is imminent and they know he holds a powerful weapon from heaven. Will they have to fight against the soldiers of Nayado?

Bart Sears does some beautiful double page layouts as this story unfolds. You will marvel at the beauty of these drawings. A striking drawing is showing Obo-san amidst the snowy mountains pondering on the path he must choose. He thinks of the knowledge he gained from his father and thinks of his people. He thinks of the loyalty his people show upon their emperor and how they follow simple tradition.

Nayado may plunge into oblivion and this cannot be. The chills raced down my spine as Obo-san returns to his people and says that Mitsumune must fall and Nayado must be preserved at all costs. Itís time to go to war!!
