It has a very impressive storyline, beautiful characters and soundtrack. Fuyu no Semi is the love story which blooms in a very chaotic period. The love story of two rival warriors in the time of war.

It is such a powerful love story of passion, yearnings, separations and Sacrifices. It has the capability to move your heart. Its a love story like snow, very cold and very beautiful. Its a love story so historic and so pure.
