Summary and Preview

皇紀1502年―月―。中央壱番クレーター皇都・迦護女京(カゴメノミヤコ)。この月の都を治める女皇には、その証として巫暈支(フツヌシ)という刀が授けられる――…。幼き頃、母・フジヤの譲位式を見て、その姿に憧れたカグヤ。自分もいつか母の様に強く、美しい銀后になると心に強く誓うのであった――!

時は流れ、フジヤ銀后統治の元、この都は平安に包まれていた。しかし先々代の銀后が民に強いた恐怖政治の影響で、未だに皇位廃止を訴えるテロリスト達が度々暴動を起こしていた。そんな中、銀后皇女・カグヤは、元服を迎えるまでに成長し、皇宮内で派手に暴れまわっていた。勉強はしない、すぐに脱走、いたずらはする――…。そのじゃじゃ馬っぷりに侍講たちは手を焼いていた。いつかは自分も強く美しい母のように――…。そう思っていたカグヤだったが、成長するにつれ、銀后になるための厳しい稽古、勉強につぐ勉強。さらには優しかった母までもが厳しくなり、以前のように一緒に町へ出たり、普通の親子のような関係でいられなくなった事で、自分の立場を疎ましく思っていた。

そんなカグヤの元服が数日後に迫ったある日、母・銀后が倒れてしまう。もともと身体の弱かった銀后だが、激務が重なり、かなり無理をしていたのだった。待講たちに、自分の素行も母に負担をかけていたと責められたカグヤは、今までの自分の甘えや逃げてきた事を後悔し、母を助ける為、一人前の証・成女の儀を執り行うことに決めた。

一方、皇位奪還を目論む分家・梅之内は、連日爆破騒ぎを起こす転宮党を裏で糸を引き、カグヤと銀后の暗殺を企てていた。成女の儀の当日。転宮党は、カグヤの姿を一目見ようと集まった民間人もろとも巻き込み、カグヤに襲撃をしかけてきた。その時、病室で寝ていたはずの銀后が宝刀・巫暈支で撃退!皇位の象徴である巫暈支を梅ノ宮に奪われないために、刀をカグヤに預け、穢星へ下れと命令する。嫌がるカグヤを無理やり航宙艇に乗せた銀后は、追ってきた梅ノ宮を掃討すべく身を呈して立ち向かう!

遠い遠い、祖先の地・地球に堕とされた皇女・カグヤの運命は――…?

On the dark side of the moon exists a highly advanced civilization divided into two clans, the Takenouchi family and the Umenouchi family. Takenouchi Kaguya is the daughter of Takenouchi Fumiya, the acting queen of the clan. Kaguya is the next in line for the position for queen but she refuses to be obedient and wants to enjoy life. The bratty Kaguya despises her mother and the people around her for being so strict and often wishes she was never born as a princess.

Queen Fumiya has been severely ill for many years now, but has kept it from her daughter in order to protect her but her condition has worsened. The Umenouchi family takes this opportunity to start a coup and takes over the government. Knowing that she is not able to ensure her daughter’s safety on the moon, Fumiya sends Kaguya to Earth with the powerful katana that symbolizes her ownership of the moon. Without the sword, the Umenouchi family cannot usurp control of the moon. Kaguya is forced to mature and become stronger in order to take back what was once her mother’s! [vyc]
