The anime is available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands.

SS, Momo Kyun Sword) directed the anime at project No.9, and Tatsuya Takahashi (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky) was in charge of series composition. The five-member idol group Luce Twinkle Wink☆ performed the opening theme song "1st Love Story."

After the murder of his parents, young Tetsu begins a quest for vengeance that threatens to consume his soul. His journey leads him to the Shinsengumi, an order of swordsmen at war with the villains who cut down his parents.

Tokyopop licensed and released the original five-volume series, and re-released four volumes in the sequel series before the company shut down its North American publishing division in 2011.
