Shibata began the series in July. Shonen Jump describes the story:

In history, there lies a truth which will never be told— The setting sets in Bakumatsu (late Edo Period). A pair of samurai slayers—Jinro Akatsuki and Gin Akatsuki—makes their way to Kyoto to make a name for themselves. There, they meet the strongest samurai force—the Shinsengumi—and a man that gives off the scent of a beast. The name of the man was.........Toshizo Hijikata. Within this country before the new era—a pack of beasts take a bite out of history!!
