Jintetsu left the world of the living behind... until he was resurrected in a new steel body. Now his only future seems to be as an aimless drifter; an assassin for hire. It's a hard and lonely life, because beneath this samurai's cold steel armor beats an all-too-human heart.
Jintetsu is lost in the mountains when a man offers him shelter. But the quaint house is actually a house of horrors, haunted by lost love and madness. There Jintetsu meets O-en, a beautiful, intelligent woman who has lived for years with a burning hatred and is now obsessed with vengeance. And she's hell-bent on sweeping Jintetsu into her drama of revenge!
Story and art by Kei Toume.
