In the last days of the Shoguns, a powerful and skilful swordsman struck fear into the hearts of soldiers. Known as ‘Battosai the Killer’, he vanished from sight when the last Shogun fell and Japan entered its modern age, leaving only his legend. Now, ten years later, he has vowed to kill no more. And to prevent himself doing so, he carries only a ‘back-blade’, a sword sharpened only on the edge he holds toward himself.
