The battle opened with an exchange of arrow fire, then Endo Setsuko led the Sumita Cavalry regiment in a charge against the Watanabe right wing under Kudo Masao. Kudo's infantry held and he called in his horse (Keigo) and a general melee ensued in which the Watanabe were victorious. Meanwhile in the centre, the massed fire of the Watanabe guards regiments shattered the Ikeda guards line. On the allied left, the Maeda advanced steadily, under the fire of the Ikeda right wing (Kihei & Keigo), losing 3 units of spearmen. Higa Nobuo revealed his true loyalty and changed sides, joining the forces of Nansei-do, capturing the fleeing Endo Setsuko The remaining units of the Ikeda centre charged the advancing Watanabe forces to cover the withdrawal of their Lord. Though they fought bravely they were overwhelmed by superior numbers. The Ikeda commander, Kono Satoshi was captured. Meanwhile on the Watanabe right, the forces of the Kinoshita and Kikuchi clans fought a brave but futile battle against 3 companies of Watanabe infantry and one of Escorts. Both Lords died in the battle. Lord Ikeda managed to flee the battlefield with 8 companies of cavalry and 4 of escorts, and withdrew back into his castle.

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Well, I'll be quite honest, with all the wars going on I only still have one realm spell right now. No time for research though it is planned for next turn. (I'm Kazuko mainly, only minor Bosan.)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Though considering this is rather expansive undertaking I should surely be able to invest more into the magic. (I can cast Bless Army now but considering my low caster level..)

Abe Taiyou -Abe (Jeroen): Some of the possible spells might be useful however and it's always an extra edge. If I would get involved direcetly I could invest in Clap of Heavenly Thunder. Nothing quite says moral superiority like slap from the Kami.
