Commander of Shinsengumi's second division. A great swordsman at the end of the Edo period.
Shinpachi Nagakura was a swordsman who was active as an executive of the Shinsengumi at the end of the Edo period. In the early Mibu Roshi-gumi three-headed system, he served as the assistant vice-commander, and in the latter half of the Shinsengumi, which was common to the general public, he served as the second division captain. His posthumous name is Noriyuki. Birth date: April 11, 1880 (May 23, 1839 AD) Died: January 5, Taisho 4 (1915 AD) While members of the Shinsengumi such as Souji Okita, Isamu Kondo, and Toshizo Hijikata all died tragic deaths, Hajime Saito, like Hajime Saito, is a rare person who survived after the Meiji Restoration and whose path is clear, and who helped restore the honor of the Shinsengumi. played a major role. According to his personality, ``Mochinushi had an indifferent personality that was typical of Edo people, and he didn't care about things, and that personality probably helped him survive.'' (Shotaro Ikenami “Konsho Nagakura Shinpachi”) ``He was an Edo kid-like person.'' (Shimozawa Hiroshi “Shinsengumi Ibisu”) Said each literary figure. It is said that ``he was a good-hearted man who cared about first impressions without worrying about details, and had a deep sense of duty and humanity,'' but it also added that ``that makes it difficult to understand the dynamics of politics head-on.'' Even after the Meiji Restoration, he regretted the purge of Kamo Serizawa, and he continued to call Hachiro Kiyokawa, the founder of Roshi-gumi, Sensei, so his observation seems to be correct. Nagakura, who survived even after the fall of the Edo shogunate, felt sorry for himself who had survived. ``Even in the Meiji and Taisho eras, when we were no longer particular about things, we seemed to be concerned about everything, and the things that always expressed our individual prudence continued to maintain our incomprehensible sense of seriousness. It actually aroused my suspicions." ("After the Dream"/"Shinsengumi Chapter") A story about Shinpachi's eldest son, Gitaro. As she tells her eldest son, she has lived a life that is hard on herself. Even after the Meiji Restoration, Nagakura lived a humble and quiet life as a defeated man, while at the same time never forgetting his pride as a member of the Shinsengumi and lived evangelizing the shogunate army and the Shinsengumi.Although this may seem contradictory at first glance, it is clear that Nagakura was a man. Make it look as pure as possible.
