Plot Summary: Hachimaru was born with a compromised immune system and a weak body – so weak, in fact, that he can't survive without being hooked up to a special machine his father made. Despite that, Hachimaru dreams of becoming a samurai and one day going out into the galaxy to save people. His dream turns out to be closer than he thinks when his slight-defective robot dog brings home what at first looks like a daruma, but turns out to be Daruma, a legendary samurai. With Daruma's help, Hachimaru begins the transformation that will turn him into the true samurai he's always wanted to be.
