However, Tokisada pulls Ittoki aside and tells him that Yumika is willing to grant a secret third choice where Ittoki can hide. Not wanting to leave his mother alone to rule the Iga clan, Ittoki reluctantly decides to become a ninja. To protect him, Yumika decides to enroll Ittoki in the Kokuten Ninja Academy, which is controlled by the National Ninjutsu Security Measures Committee (NSC), making the academy neutral territory that Koga cannot openly attack.
