Kanemi Sanzawmon, a talented but restless Edo-era swordsman. Three years earlier, Kanemi killed a woman, Renko, the corrupt lover of the mighty Daimyo Tabu Ukyou. Unexpectedly, Kanemi received a lenient sentence for his crime and is allowed to return to his clan after only one year in prison. After his return Kanemi faces the death of his wife Mutsue. Then Kanemi lives with his wife's niece, Satoo, and takes care of them. She has a secret affection for Kanemi and expresses it by helping to change his bleak attitude towards life. Meanwhile, Kanemi is developing his unique "bird-catching" sword technique, which he will soon test for the first time in the fight against fearsome swordsman Hayatonosho Obiya.
