Urusei Yatsura: Gods and Generals

In the years of 1868-69, the Boshin war was beginning of end for the Shogun. Our favorite characters including OC charcters are in history of the making. It is epic story of war, love, and adventure. Will Ataru return from Boshin war to reunite with Lum? The story has been cancelled. It was originally supposed to be a three stories, but due of life events I have no choice.

10. March to Osaka

After the battle, the men strike up their tents and prepare to go to Osaka where the Shogun's forces were. Jackson oversees the tent as they form into marching columns. "Jackson-san, we are ready." Mendo said to Jackson as he nodded.

They order the entire regiment on the march as other units followed them in the suit. The frozen winter is snowing around them as they march towards Osaka. However, that didn't stop them to drive out the shogunate forces.

"Man, do we have to drag our asses to Osaka when we sneak out?" Ataru complained "QUIET on the Ranks!" Osen-Mark shouted which he is the company's commander. "What we do in our march, sir. All we don't to hear is your stink." Ataru insulted replied.

"Why you!" Osen-Mark until he was stopped by Jackson. "I wouldn't allow whip those soldiers to be broken. Rather use them to end this war quickly." Jackson said. They continue the long march to Osaka.

Meanwhile on Satsuma province, Lum, Ten, and Ataru's parents are living at life as Ataru's father tend the land and the ladies are tending the household until a group of police came. "Madam, where's your husband?" as one of the officers said. Ever since the Westernization begins, more samurai are including into the ranks of police force and the army. They increase more roles to handle more cases like crime, taxes, and other western methods.

"He's out in the fields. Is there something wrong?" Ataru's mother said. "Mam, I am afraid that by the Order of the Mendo clan that they bought this land and I am told to evict the entire household." One of the police said. "What? But we had been here for generations. They can't do this. This is our home." Ataru's mom said.

"I'm sorry, this are your orders. You have tomorrow to leave." One of the policemen said as they left the household. It has shocked Ataru's mother who's crying on the paper saying: "This land has been bought by the Mendo Clan. Your services are no longer required. Evict in 24 hours or be arrested and thrown in jail."

"What's going on?" Ataru's father said as he returns from the fields. "This" Ataru's mother cried. He looks at the letter with shocked. Although they are peasants, they can read basic letters of Japanese. "What we are going to do?" Ataru's father said. "What choice we got? To the city?" Ataru's mother.

They are arguing to deal with the situation until a knock on the door. Seeing they are too busy to hear the knocking, Lum open the door to see a mail-man. "One letter for Moroboshi household, have a nice day" As the mail-man gave Lum the letter as he left. She sees the letter to know what it is and discover its Ataru sent it.

Seeing they are arguing, she goes to the room to read it while Ten is asleep. As she reads it, she is full of joy that he is alive and well that he is in one piece. But in the same time, she misses so much that she saves the letter to remind herself that he still lives. "Darling, I hope you are ok." Lum said.

As in the winter snow falls on the road as the army marches as the regiment with the flags flying they are shivering in the cold. "How long we been marching?" Ataru whined. "I think about 5 miles if you quit asking us that! I am getting tired of this." Megane complained.

"What about some music?" Chibi asked. "Music? I don't know. Do Western armies do music on the march?" Kaguari replied to Chibi. "Well, it will keep us from boredom. It seems we march for least a 100 miles." Perm said as Kosuke replied, "What does our Foreigner commander allow us to do?"

As Jackson overhearing their conversation, he ordered the drummer boy to set a tune which surprises the entire regiment as Jackson sings:

"When Johnny comes marching home again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

They were surprised that Jackson is singing a song where he comes from as Jackson continued to sing

The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our darling boy,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Suddenly a few begin to sing and slowly, but steady grew in a chorus that gave everyone to cure out of boredom.

Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Now, everyone in the brigade starting to sing the song as they marching down the road as surprises Saigo Takamori who was there witnessing.

Let love and friendship on that day,
Hurrah, hurrah!
Their choicest pleasures then display,
Hurrah, hurrah!
And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warrior's heart,
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home

The song finished with much amusement as the troops' morale soared and Saigo came near to Jackson. "That was something, Jackson-san. I am much admired of that. What song is that I may asked" Saigo said to Jackson. "Sir, it is a song from the war I was in. The name is When Johnn comes marching home." Jackson answered to Saigo.

"I am amazed that a Foreigner like you, to command with feat. But your services are needed for one year left. I hope the war is over that you will return home." Saigo replied to Jackson as he ride out. Jackson knew the war will be long, but not too long compare to the war he fought that hopefully that the newly-born Imperial army will win the war soon as possible.

Author: For the record, the song is an old civil war song. I was hoping to spice things up. I know the history of the Boshin War, but I am taking this a artistic reasons. But I have decided to make this a crossover story of Total War and Urusei Yatsura. I hope my readers will understand or I have gotten used of reviews that hated this. Review this if you think how you view this story. JUST remember, this is a big lip alligator moment.
