Synopsis: Legendary swordsman Nemuri Kyoshiro (Tamura Masakazu) has a complicated background. One day, the monk Kuzen (Nakahara Takeo), who can be considered Kyoshiro’s foster father, is killed with a sword. Kyoshiro comes back to Edo after a long time and is welcomed by Mojiwaka (Natori Yuko), Kinpachi (Yashima Norito) and Matsudaira Mondonosho (Tsugawa Masahiko) whom he has close relations with. Saddened beyond words by the death of Kuzen who loved him deeply and brought him up from a very young age, Kyoshiro recalls his childhood. Meanwhile, when Kyoshiro is relaxing in the home of the meddlesome Mojiwaka, Kinpachi who knows the gossip about town, noisily rushes in with a dark expression. He says a young lady has called at the house and wants to meet Kyoshiro. Misao (Yoshioka Riho) appears and suddenly calls Kyoshiro “father”. Kyoshiro is lost for words but does not distance himself. Then he learns about the existence of Kagami Yozo (Shiina Kippei) who uses mysterious black magic as well as the same Engetsu (full moon) killing technique as him, and has to confront his own past.
