[edit] Background Knowledge

The Murakami Navy was famous during Japan's warring period. However, when the country was united under Hideyoshi Toyotomi, he issued the proclamation against piracy, and the Murakami Navy was slowly robbed of it's power. The final resistance put forth by the Murakami naval forces of Noujima was met by the Kuki Navy, who had been defeated harshly in the past at the hands of the Murakami Navy. Both sides of the navy fought viciously in a series of battles at sea. While the Murakami forces originally held the advantage, they were eventually pressed back by the Kuki naval forces. The Kuki naval forces were backed by Hideyoshi, the great leader of Japan, and in the end, the Murakami were finally defeated.

In the records of this conflict, anyone can find the name Heishiro Mitsurugi. At the beginning of the battle, Mitsurugi had supported the Murakami naval forces. But apparaently, in the end, he switched sides to the Kuki naval forces.
