远藤盛远,日本平安时代末期至镰仓时代初期的武士,也是镰仓幕府重要幕僚之一。作为一个血气方刚的大男儿,盛远性格焦躁莽撞,连爱起人来都是一幅“老子一定要得到你”的霸道总裁架势,只可惜他的爱情故事因这过于蛮横的性格酿成了惨祸。

传闻他上了同僚渡边渡的妻子——袈裟御前。袈裟御前容姿秀丽,盛远一见钟情,自此盛远对袈裟御前的感情日益膨胀,到了最后甚至执拗地逼迫袈裟御前与丈夫渡分手并和自己交往。但忠烈的袈裟御前无法背叛丈夫,恳求盛远放弃她。但盛远并未听从,威胁御前若不与他私奔,便要杀害御前的母亲后再自杀,袈裟御前自然不可能牺牲母亲。难以招架这恐怖求爱的袈裟御前终于下了一大决心。

她对盛远说“若你如此想与我共度人生,那就请杀了我丈夫吧!这样便答应你。”袈裟御前哀求盛远弑其丈夫,而盛远也毫不犹豫地允诺。深夜里,盛远按照袈裟御前的指示潜入渡的寝室,一刀便把渡的头给砍了下来。喜出望外的盛远在月光下看了首级,却大惊失色。原来斩下的头并非渡边,而是他恋慕许久的袈裟御前,原来是袈裟御前代替了丈夫受死。

芳年所画的这个片段便是盛远手拿着大刀,蹑手蹑脚地在门边张头探望着,准备潜入寝室行刺,肯定心想着“过了今晚袈裟御前就是我的了,渡边渡你的首级拿来吧你!”谁知,爱情的悲剧才正式开始…

Endō Moritō was a samurai in the late Heian and early Kamakura periods in Japan. He was a loyal retainer of the Kamakura Shogunate. But Morito had an impetuous and reckless personality. He was jealous and possessive. And this led to a disaster.

Morito fell in love at first sight with the wife of his colleague, Watanabe Watanabe. Her name was Kesa-gozen and she was quite beautiful. He stubbornly forced her to break up with her husband and have a relationship with him. But she could not face betraying her husband, and begged the Morito to give her up. Morito refused, telling her if she would not elope with him, he'd kill her mother and then himself. Gozen would not sacrifice her mother. But she had another idea. 

"If you want to live your life with me so much, please kill my husband!" Morito promised without hesitation. In the middle of the night, he sneaked into Watanabe's bedroom -- following Gozen's specific instructions -- and cut off his head. Overjoyed, Morito looked at the victim in the moonlight, but was shocked. It turned out that it was not Watanabe who was beheaded, but the kimono robes he had long admired were enveloping the woman they both loved. Gozen had dressed in her husband's robes to take his place and die.

This colorful and dramatic print shoes the samurai holding the fatal sword in his hand, tiptoeing around the door, and preparing to sneak into the bedroom for assassination. He must be thinking, "After tonight, Gozen will be mine.” 

 

But, the tragedy of love has officially begun ...
