Loosely based on The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Ikki Tousen roughly translates into "one with the power to defeat a thousand." It is a modern-day retelling of
the Chinese classic, but with the twist of having most of the major characters in female incarnations. Taking place in the Kanto region of Japan, the character roster is comprised almost exclusively of high-school students from seven different institutions vying for control of the area. Will they be able to avoid the fates of their original namesakes, or will destiny once again dictate their outcomes?
