“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” — A. A. Milne

Castle of the blackbird, which was beautiful and looked haughty from the outside exuded its beauty. This castle has magic that can kill its worshipers. Kills with it incomparable beauty and worldly luxuries.

Behind its impeccable beauty, this castle has twin dragons who have the instinct to remain loyal to the king.

Years passed, the twin Dragons still remembered their wounds — and the screams of sorrow- still in their heads.

The twin dragons are Ryu and Jin, where their names are very famous throughout the city, everyone knows about them, but the dragons are getting tired of the situation.

The empires took turns and the twin dragons never stopped obeying to the king, until one day Ryu lost his way and decided to end his life.

Knowing that Ryu is starting to die, Jin begins to protect him, who turns out to be seriously injured in order to protect the emperor.

Barrages of attacks from outside but the Castle of the blackbird still looks solid and doesn’t budge a bit. Jin tries his best to protect Ryu the defenseless blue dragon. Jin resisted the fire and arrow attacks with his body so that Ryu and the emperor could defend themselves. But the blue dragon chose to give up.

The war is not over, but Jin is getting tired, until at one point he realizes that what they are doing is just a waste because they don’t understand why they made all the mistakes they should have let go of a long time ago.

Jin gets angry and turns to attack the empire and blames Ryu’s death. He drowned the emperor and the kingdom to the bottom of the ocean and buried them with the blue dragon, Ryu. The empire collapsed with the fall of the two dragons at the bottom of the ocean

Instantly Jin realized that, Ryu told him to keep the castle until the last drop of blood. Remembering that message;

“Through silence, I know your mind is looking for our truth
Don’t need reminding, the living proof
So, walk with me and I’ll walk with you

The chaos, our kingdom fell
Stole heaven, so we gave them hell
And the pieces will find themselves
So, fight for me, I’ll fight as well

Now we’re standing on the edge
Our backs against the wall
A penthouse view on our own two
And now we’re standing tall
We can be giants, Cause every one of us has always been enough”

Jin left Ryu, the blue dragon in the ocean and returned the castle of the black bird to its original place and bewitched it with a beat of his tail.

Ryu who has been left in the ocean and Jin who is stuck in the castle, they are the beauty and toughness of the twin dragons that will never fall from Okayama…
