THE STORY CONTINUES...

The tale of 47: Rōnin (or Forty-Seven Samurai, also known as the Akō vendetta) is a prototypical Japanese story.

It recounts the most famous case involving the #samurai code of honour, bushido, and vividly expresses a significant part of the traditional #Japanese worldview.

The story tells of a group of samurai who were left leaderless (became Rōnin) after their master was forced to commit seppuku (ritual suicide) for assaulting a court official who had insulted him.

They avenged him by killing the court official after patiently waiting and planning for over a year. In turn, they were themselves forced to commit seppuku for committing the crime of murder, as they had known they would be—the tale being about the honorable fulfillment of duty, especially to an honourable leader.

This is our story to show the coming together of Rōnin.
