[ serialized in [Comic Blade], related to Otogi Zoshi (TV) ]
In Kyoto of the late 900s, famine and plague amongst the general populace put the capital city into decline while samurai clans jockey for power and position. One of the most prominent is the Minamoto clan, whose heir Lord Raikou is a rising star due to success against bandits. His spunky and tomboyish kid sister Hikaru so admires her brother that she wishes to cast off the role society has dictated for her and follow in her brother's footsteps, but her father and brother stand against it and the world outside her estate is not so accomodating to a proper young woman. That doesn't stop her, however, from getting into considerable trouble and danger.
