 Witch's Requirement  劇 名﹕新選組

劇 情﹕結成於日本江戶時代德川幕府末期、如今在日本家喻戶曉的「新選組」(Shinsengumi),到底是何方神聖?以現代術語形容,「維護治安的鎮暴部隊」或許最為貼切;但觀其實際作為,若認為他們是剷除異己的暗殺集團、仗勢弄武魚肉他人的恐怖份子,亦不為過。鎖國兩百餘年後,一向強橫的德川幕府在船堅砲利之外國勢力入侵下,與一海之隔的滿清皇朝一樣,在在透露了腐敗不振的跡象。部份遠地的藩國開始出現「勤王倒幕」的風潮,主張為了強國攘夷,必須廢除幕府制度,將政權歸還天皇。因有幕府彈壓,起初只能暗中進行;等到打著倒幕旗幟的浪人在京都引爆「天誅」行動,執行對幕府高官或支持幕府人士(佐幕派)的暗殺,世局更形動盪。為了維護京都治安,在時勢推演下,有了新選組的誕生。也可以說,新選組等於是維持國家秩序的保安警察。

    新選組原本只是以護衛十四代將軍——德川家茂前往京都的特勤部隊為名而招集的編制外武力。成員部分是日本各地脫離原屬藩國的浪人,更多的是一心想晉升武士階級的習武平民。說穿了不過是群臨時的浪士組合、烏合之眾。來到京都後,在擔任「京都守護職」的會津藩主松平容保庇護下,文久三年(一八九三)舊曆三月十三日,由幕府任命,正式賦予新選組名號,開始執行勤務。顧名思義,新選組的稱呼代表「新被選拔出來的人」。雖然最後於史上列名者將近五百,但最初結成時僅有十數名(一說二十餘人),以原來聚集在江戶多摩地區的小型武館「試衛館」成員為主,因此名稱中用的是「組」而不稱「隊」。另外,文史資料上也常見「新撰組」的寫法,雖然漢字有異,但日語發音與字意相同。調查文獻發現,新選組向會津藩提報的公文常自稱「新撰組」,而反過來由會津藩所發出的公文則多寫「新選組」,因此有人認為,除了慣用字的原因之外,或許亦有不將真實名稱示人的考量。為免混淆,如今多以「新選組」稱之。
