The story takes place in the backdrop of the confrontation that unfolds in the middle of the 19th century in Japan. An epic samurai era is living out its last years. As a result, the society is split between the followers of the shogunate and its opponents. The world is faced with the unknown threat never seen before as an army of historical revisionists arrives from the future in order to change the course of history. To restore the justice and preserve the true history, two sword warriors combine their forces. Courteous and mindful Horikawa Kunihiro and intemperate yet experienced Izuminokami Kanesada, who are the apprentices of the same master are going to stop the invading army. They enlisted the support of other brave warriors, among them, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.
