A rōnin samurai called Gen Tsukinosuke is one of the few surviving Saishis and the owner of a magnificent sword, the "Fangs of God". He travels in search of his estranged sister and sleeps with women who yearn for death, killing them with his deadly poison. The story takes place in the war-torn days at the end of the Edo period.
