Romance between "swordsmen," based on a true-life adventure of a young girl determined to be a part of history.
In the 1860s in Japan, a new era is dawning. During this time fraught with violent social upheaval, samurai of all walks of life flock to Kyoto in the hope of joining a band of warriors united around their undying loyalty to the shogunate system. This group becames one of the greatest (and most infamous) movements in Japanese history…the Shinsengumi!
The death of Yamanami casts a cold, dark shadow over the troop, as each member feels the unspoken pain of his loss. Kamiya is the only one to mourn his death openly. But just as her emotions begin to settle, a new source of anxiety pops up--Sae, Soji's old love interest, appears in Kyoto looking for him. How will Kamiya cope with this challenge to the most important relationship in her life?
