Wow, I was not expecting to find out that, Nobunaga does in fact have a mouth and that it just looks like he does not have one most of the time. Episode 1 introduces Chidori's master, who belongs to the Fuma clan and Sukezou, a fellow ninja who is in love with Chidori. Chidori and Sukezou leave Chidori's master in hope of finding Nobunaga and serving him. While the two are on their journey, Chidori recounts how she met Nobunaga once before and how he saved her from drowning in a river. She expresses feelings of doubt about Nobunaga recalling their previous encounter.
While in Owari, Nobunaga impatiently awaits the arrival of the ninja from Iga, Chidori and Sukezou. When Chidori makes her surprisingly sneaky entrance, both of Nobunaga's companions of vassals admit that Chidori and Sukezou are true shinobi. After Chidori and Sukezou introduce themselves and Nobunaga boldly declares that the two of them will live for him, before Nobunaga departs, he dispels all of Chidori doubts by stating how much she has grown in the last 5 years.
