At the end of the Edo Period, Japan, which was once ruled by the samurai, entered an age of turmoil.
The large-numbered Shishi, who wished to build a nation around the Emperor gathered in Kyo with ideals of overthrowing the Bakufu and expelling foreigners. Within their numbers, harboring no desire to change the world, was a man who only lived for revenge: Sakamoto Ryoma.
In order to avenge his mentor, he hides his identity and blends into the city of Kyo, becoming a member of the Shinsengumi, a notorious group of assassins feared as the Mibu Wolves. Ryoma gives up his name and becomes “Saito Hajime”, determined to infiltrate the group no matter what dangers may lie in his wake.
In an era of change, the heroic Sakamoto Ryoma carves out his place in history. Another legend begins now.
