This is a tragedy about the suicide of 47 samurai reteiners as a loyality expression for their masters. They do suicide after they kill the anemy of theirs masters. In This tragedy we can see two types of loyality of samurai reteiners to their masters, i.e: the old bushido and the new bushido. The old bushido is one type of bushido borned between in the relation of their masters and their reteiners. The type of this loyality is “be ready to die for their masters without reasons”. The other side, the new bushido is a moral of samurai created by Shogun (centre of birocrate). This loyality is based on Confusianism, Colled as rational teaching. Loyal to their masters becouse there’s benefit of doing it. So, in the Kanadehon Chushingura we can see the changing proces between old bushido and new bushido.
