His girlfriend is Shiho (Anna Ishii), who is from the shizoku (warrior families). Ushimatsu Segawa is uncomfortable hiding his background from others, including his girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Ushimatsu Segawa becomes influenced by burakumin rights activist & writer Rentarou Inoko (Hidekazu Mashima), who also comes from the Hisabetsu-buraku.
