Tsunaarashi was the great Champion of the Japanese dog fighting compititions.
Tsunaarashi was a famous fighting dog. He won the Championship six times and was eight years old when he faced Benizakura in the final of the 7th. The battle was a draw. But Tsunaarashi was getting old and retired from the arena. The last year he became blind. His owner now used him as a training dog for young fighting dogs. Tsunaarashi met Benizakura again, who was furious to see him used as a punching bag and jumped into Tsunaarashi's exhibit and killed the younger dogs to punish them.
