- Based on a manga by Yamaguchi Takayuki, serialised in shounen magazine Champion RED.
In the sixth year of the Kan’ei era (1629), at the beginning of the Edo period, a samurai was hired to settle a grievance in the castle of Suruga. Appearing in a tournament which contraventioned all of the existing dueling laws to allow the use of real swords, the one-armed samurai starts a battle with a blind lame swordsman which brings together for the last time two mighty swordsmen whose bloody intertwined past is as beautiful and as gruesome as the scarred wounds that adorn their bodies and souls.
An exceptional manga artist decides to tackle the forbidden work by the last giant figure in samurai literature, only to give birth to a colossal period drama filled with unspeakable tragedy and cruelty!
