Soga Monogatari (曽我物語) is a Japanese epic tale of two brothers.
It was dramatized based on the incident 'Revenge of Soga Brothers'.
The brothers are Soga Jūrō and Soga Gorō. Events take place in Japan in the 12th century.
The general accepted version is that the father of the two boys was killed when they were infants.
As adults they became skilled fighters intent on avenging their father and retrieving his sword Tomokirimaru.
The villain is usually Kudō Suketsune, a retainer of the shōgun (probably Minamoto no Yoritomo).
Jūrō is killed in the fighting as is Kudō Suketsune. Gorō dies later (by execution).
Material of the roller ends: Bone
