Avenging his father's murder was a matter of honor for the young samurai Jintetsu. But the man who killed his father was a corrupt official, and now the government is determined to hunt Jintetsu down. There's only one problem: he's already dead.
Torn to pieces by a pack of dogs, Jintetsu's ravaged body was found by Genkichi, outcast and master inventor. Genkichi gives him a new indestructible steel body - and a talking sword - just what he'll need to face down the gang that's terrorizing his hometown and the mobster who ordered his father's death.
But what about Otsuki, the beautiful girl he left behind? Steel armor is proof against any sword, but it can't save him from the pain in his heart.
Story and art by Kei Toume .
