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!
Akesato the courtesan has been instrumental in hiding the fact that Sei is a girl by pretending to be "his" lover. But Yamanami, another member of the Shinsengumi, has fallen madly in love with Akesato. As he struggles with the conflict between his comrade Sei and the love he feels for Akesato, he stumbles onto Sei's secret.
