About and Introduction
I will try to tell about the main charachter and the surroundings without telling too much about the plot. Nobutada has got a crippled father who fought for the father of Shingen; Nobutora. He was wounded in battle and had to remove his leg. He has got a son, Nobutada, whom he learns everything he can of battle and the samurai code. Nobutada gets his Baptism of Fire at the battle of Uedahara, at the age of 15. (And the reason is not not that Shingen debuted at the same age...) Hope you enjoy.
