Osaka Free City. One of the jewels of Japan and formally known as the separate cities of Osaka and Sakai. Osaka was a special city guarded by the famous Ii clan, that through an agreement between the Imperial Court and the Shogunate had special economic rules. Most trade and gambling was legal in Osaka. It also held massive trade with foreigners and some foreign countries had even been allowed to establish business areas in the city. Osaka's massive port allowed it to hold even more ships at one time than Edo's and it was no stretch to say that it was the economic hub of the country.
The Bugei had offered to take three students on a day trip to Osaka. At the crack of dawn the student's alarms would go off. They would be ordered to meet in the common room of the student dorms. In the common room they would find a rather surprising person. The that greeted them was none other than Yagyu-sensei
."I've prepared food for you all. You should all eat quickly, and get whatever coffee or tea you'd like before we go."
In a fairly unusual act of kindness he seemed to have put out coffee, bagels, fish, rice, and a few snack bars for them. After all they would be gone all day."I'm sure you three are curious why I'm here. Osaka allows many things Edo doesn't. Due to this it can be fairly dangerous at times. The headmaster has advised me to keep a careful eye on you all."
he said curtly. For once he wouldn't be putting them through training drills, or beating them into the ground. Instead, this time, the students had been given what was likely one of the best bodyguards in all of Edo, if not Japan as a whole.MatsushinaAlidaNobuyumi

The forge was hot. In the fairly modern workshop of Edo Bugie's smithing lab the forges ran extremely hot and one could see the air bend and curve as heat rose from the various ovens around the room. In the middle of all of this stood Oda Nobukatsu
. He was a large man from the Oda clan that had come to the school to be it's primary smithing teacher. He and Kono-sensei seemed like polar opposites, but it was to be expected.
Due to his long history regarding working with a forge he didn't seem phased by the intense heat at all. Instead he smiled as he waited on today's students to show up. The lesson was a simple, after hours class to teach three people the absolute basics of smithing. To this end he had various minerals and workstations set up.
Seeing the students arrived he smiled."WELCOME!"
he said, his arms a bit spread."Today you will learn the basics of creation! You will learn how to create works of metallic art with your own two hands, your blood, your sweat, and your tears! Now introduce yourselves!"
he yelled over the sound of the various machines in the room.NobuyumiKitsuJack

Nara. An ancient capital of Japan even before Kyoto. A city located south of Kyoto it had always been a place supposedly haunted by ghost, actually haunted by the deer that freely moved through the city, and occupied by many kind people that mostly lived in Nara to preserve it as a historical site on behalf of the Imperial Court.
The Bugei had offered to take three students on a day trip to Nara. At the crack of dawn the student's alarms would go off. They would be ordered to meet in the common room of the student dorms. In the common room they would find the kindly figure of none other than the school nurse, Kurita Aki, waiting for them. Nurse Kurita smiled at the three."I've prepared food for you all. Please eat up, get some coffee, and then we'll go to the train station."
knowing that the students would be tired she seemed to have put out coffee, bagels, fish, rice, and a few snack bars for them. After all they would be gone all day."Before we go on our trip if you have any questions or anything you'd like to know about Nara please ask!"
she said cheerfully. ShoyJackSuzu

Dr. Naganori, Shirasu
was a calm man. With dyed purple hair, a calming voice, and charming smile. Something about the air he gave off just helped students feel relaxed around him. Today, for the first time, he had been asked to help overlook an event. Two large clubs, the Drama club and the Cultural club had decided to host an event together. It was Naganori-sensei that agreed to oversee the clubs cooperation and insure the club's cooperation, as well as help them with any questions that came up.
As the purple haired teacher walked into the room normally used for the large band club he instead found a large array of students gathered, wearing blue armbands for the cultural club and green armbands for the drama club. Some students of course had both on their arms. Walking up to the front of the room he smile."Good afternoon everyone. I have heard you are all gathered to talk about Atsumori. It may seem strange having a history teacher present, however Atsumori is extremely historical and very important to our culture. Thus I have been asked to come supervise. I have also been told to help you all come up with a presentation about Atsumori for the school."
and with that he waited for the students to settle into the idea of him overseeing the class."Now, what does everyone know of Atsumori? Any major fans in the room? Anyone just hearing about it for the first time?"KitsuAlidaJack

Adachi ward was considered one of the happiest places in all of Edo, or so people said. The majority of Edo's lower and middle class lived in this area and celebrations seemed to be common place. Tonight, as winter was brought in and welcomed fireworks soared over the city. A famous Sumo stable in Edo had won the national tournament and all of Eastern Edo was celebrating. In the cold night air many Bugei students from various backgrounds could be seen. Among them a particular blond noble in black pants, a white shirt, and a long but beautiful blue coat with a golden Azai crest on the back.
Looking at the festival and people celebrating was a stark contrast to the events of earlier in the year. Edo was being rebuilt, something the Bugei students had worked hard on over the summer, and slowly but surely the people of Edo had started remembering what it was like to enjoy life again. Nobuyori sipped a bit of coffee milk and smiled.
He hadn't been back in Edo long. After all the new school year had just begun. However, all summer and even before then he had something on his mind and planned to carry it out this evening. No matter what.Alida
