There was an ‘immortal’ man who was said to have killed a hundred men. That man’s name was Manji.
Manji meets a girl named Rin who swore revenge on the one who killed her parents. Rin asks Manji if he would become her bodyguard in her quest for revenge. At first, Manji refused, but then he saw the image of his younger sister who died within Rin. As it would be dangerous for Rin to go at it alone, he decides to give her a hand. However, Rin’s enemies are a group of swordsmen who are members of Ittou-ryuu. It meant the beginning of a fierce fight to the death that would even catch up to the immortal Manji.
