Titre original : Invoking the Loyalty of the Swaying Red Flower
Azai Nagamasa is formally introduced. He is the leader of Oumi as well as the brother-in-law of Oda Nobunaga. After he heard what misdeeds Oda is bringing across the country, he no longer wants to accept this fact and is setting out to prevent him from attacking Asakura, an ally of his. After he tries to persuade Oda from attacking their joint ally, Oda tells him to attack Asakura himself or he will kill his own sister, Oichi. In the meantime, Kasuga is with Takeda Shingen to confirm his alliance with Uesugi. After she leaves, Sasuke comes back to report his failure in persuading both Azai and Tokugawa in forming an alliance with Takeda. In the end Date, Uesugi, and Takeda formed an alliance to defeat Oda, and Azai plans to head out to prevent Date from attacking Oda's army.
