To atone for the atrocities committed under his watch, Habaki Kagimura is no longer the top general for Edo castle and the shogunate, and - he must commit ritual suicide. While his replacement gave the despised Itto-ryu gang a reprieve and an order to leave Edo and remain in exile, Kagimura still has one shot to redeem himself. Desperate and with very little time left, he's assembled his Rokki-dan warriors -- with Kagimura's own daughter among their numbers -- and he now seeks to hunt down and wipe out the Itto-ryu for good. But in his haste, will he fall for a string of traps planned by Anotsu, their devious leader? Freed and unfazed by his time in Edo's dungeons, Manji searches for his missing limb, and a few old friends return to the pages of this action-filled, epic manga series.
