|Takezo Kensei is one of Japan's most beloved historical figures. His tales, based on actual events, have now become a blend of legend and fact. Kensei is recognized for saving his countrymen from a terrible and tyrannical warlord. But how the fabled swordsman accomplished this is still interpreted from many different perspectives...|
Takezo Kensei and his small cat-like companion, Hiro, discover the map scroll with information on the secret lair of White Beard being guarded by a small bear on a large rock. Believing the bear to be the Black Bear of Sakashita, Kensei draws his sword and lunges at the animal. As he gets closer he finds a much larger bear, presumably the mother, behind the rock. The larger bear threatens Kensei and chases him as he runs away. With the large bear gone, Hiro plucks the scroll out of the paws of the smaller bear and cheers. He tells Kensei that he can come out of hiding now, but Kensei is still being chased by the large bear.
