Juzumaru Tsunetsugu Toku
数珠丸恒次 じゅずまるつねつぐ 特 とく
I am one of the Five Great Swords of Japan. You may call me Juzumaru Tsunetsugu. Through the long years, as people's values have changed again and again, I have fixed my gaze on the true meaning of Buddhism. ...A tool that cuts down people is protecting the way of the Buddha. I wonder if this state of affairs is a mistaken one...
I am Juzumaru Tsunetsugu. Through the long years, as people's values have changed again and again, I have fixed my gaze on the true meaning of Buddhism.
Touken Ranbu, it's starting.
All earthly things pass away. All existing things are without self.
Are you asking me about the period of my absence? ...Well, I do wonder what I was doing then.
Juzumaru was originally enshrined in the Kuon-ji temple founded by Nichiren. However, he went missing in the 18th century. In 1920, he was rediscovered by Sugihara Shouzou, a member of the Imperial Household Agency, in a noble's collection. He bought Juzumaru and attempted to return Juzumaru to Kuon-ji, but the temple lacked the funds to buy him. After years of negotiations, Juzumaru was given to Honkou-ji temple instead, where he remains to this day. (See History section for more details.)
This world is full of sorrows. ...What brings relief is religious faith, which is the duty of a monk.
Is there something distressing you?
Juzumaru is reciting the
, a mantra chanted by followers of Nichiren Buddhism. Its exact translation would be "Hail to the Lotus Sutra", the Lotus Sutra being a very honored sutra within Nichiren Buddhism.
Is something wrong? Are you hesitating?
Citadel (Kiwame Sendoff)
There's nothing to be anxious about. Did you not see his expression?
You mean...I must lead them?
...A monk holding a tool of war, huh.
To think that I would be holding a weapon...
Thank you for seeing us off. We'll be going now.

These are the fruits of our labor.
Expedition (Complete - Leader of Primary Party)
It seems we've made a new bond.
It is done. Please take this.
Repairs (Minor Injury)
I'll be meditating a little.
Repairs (Medium/Severe Injury)
Until my wounds have recovered, I shall briefly continue with my quest for enlightenment.
As you accomplish your goals, someone is surely watching over you.
You must come face-to-face with your own progress.
Abandon your earthly desires and obsessions, and buy only what you need.
Now is the age of war...The Latter Days have come...
Buddha is watching over us.
Let us study the enemy's situation and match their every move.
If this is unavoidable, then...
Let's aim to improve ourselves and work hard at training.
A Buddhist term meaning a sense of crushing evil and spreading the truth.
Are you satisfied with that?
It would not do to get angry.
I am prepared to face persecution for my beliefs.
Juzumaru's former owner, Nichiren, was constantly harassed and persecuted as the religious authorities of the time saw him as a threat to the establishment.
I will guide you to the right path!
Understood. You and I will settle this.
A whirlpool of hatred and malice... Is this a hell on earth?
It would be good if I could save all living things with this power.
一切皆苦 諸行無常 こうなるのもいつかはありえたことです
All things lead to suffering. All things are transient. Something like this was bound to happen one day.

To complete your daily work diligently and without fail, is the path of righteousness.
I will gladly assist you.
As they say, well fed, well bred.
If you do not mind, I will be your opponent.
Day in and day out, this is asceticism.
Citadel (Poke multiple times)
No need to be too frantic.
Citadel (Injured - Poke multiple times)
Let's heal my wounds first.
It seems the smithing has ended.
It seems the repairs have ended.

It's a failure, isn't it.
Was it due to lack of training?

Your concern...should be for others.
Welcome Back Greeting (After Long Absence)
You have returned. Did you gain anything from visiting the outside world?
New Year's Greeting
Happy New Year. Since we're here, why don't we have a Buddhist sermon? ...... Why are you making that uncomfortable expression?
Setsubun (Entering Map)
It is my duty to exorcise the Oni.
Setsubun (Boss Node)
Is this the Buddha's guidance, or the call of the Oni...?
Setsubun (Cast Beans)
There. Out with the Oni, in with the fortune.
There. In with the fortune, out with the Oni.
Setsubun (After Casting Beans)
That was a wonderful activity.
