Japan is in turmoil; violent clashes between its people and murder are running a rife and order needs to be instilled. By decree of the Tokugawa Shogunate the Roshigumi are dispatched to create stability but how much order can they create when they themselves are in turmoil?
At the centre is Ryunosuke Ibuki, a son of a samurai, who has incurred a blood debt to Serizawa, leader to the Roshigumi. Now forced to be a slave, Ryunosuke is now apart of a system he hates. However there just might be hope with Isami Kondo and his rag tag group of misfits; honour to the samurai name just might be restored.
This is the beginning of it all, of how Isami Kondo was able to set up the Shinsengumi before its downfall.
