Overview -
A many-sided tale of faith and betrayal, drama and intrigue, set in the world of old Edo.

Masterless samurai Akitsu Masanosuke is a skilled and loyal swordsman, but his na ve, diffident nature has time and again caused him to be let go by the lords who have employed him.

While there, he inadvertently learns more about the history of the gang--particularly the gruff but kind Ume--and about the cords that bind each of the members to their pasts. But the more Masa learns, the more the mysteries deepen...
