Description

——Taking place during the early stages of the Edo period, this is Rejet’s first Japanese-inspired tale. Kayo, our heroine, is the daughter of a food & tea house and is living with her father. One day, she was asked an odd favor by the Princess of Sunpu Castellan, to take her place in a marriage promenade. Because Kayo and the Princess are splitting images of each other…

Bewildered, but with her mind set, Kayo departs on her journey from Tokaido region with six samurai for bodyguards on the marriage promenade to Edo, Hakone, Mishima, up till the destination in Sunpu.

And so, the wheel of destiny begins to spin.

On the way towards Edo, she becomes caught up in youkai with destructive abilities, as well as the ‘Sword Retrieving Imperial Match’ that concerns the legendary five great swords, which is really a cover for a sickening ritual being performed…...

Through the criss-crossing and intertwining of paths, finally the road splits into two.
One, living with the sword in the path of war.
Two, living with you in the path of peace.

The destiny they find their way through to is……?——

Description

A merchant’s daughter from Edo, Musashi Province. She runs a small restaurant with her father near the castle, but due to the cold weather and crop failures, their business is in a severe condition. Influenced by her deceased mother, she learned how to fight with a naginata—Buko-ryu Naginata-jutsu. Even though she’s a woman, she understands the samurai heart.

One day, a Tokugawa samurai gave her a very important request. It’s a request for Kayo to become a fake bride and attend a mass wedding all the way to Sunpu, in place of a princess. Apparently Kayo and the wife of the Castellan of Sunpu—Hisahime—look exactly alike.

If she refuses, they might not be able to continue running a restaurant. Kayo’s decision is…

A samurai who wields dual swords. He came to Edo from Kibi Province, in order to join the Imperial Tournament of Sword Retrieval and win the Five Heavenly Swords. He makes a living by working as a roundsman, protecting Edo’s security. He’s aggressive and has a bad mouth. He’s also clumsy, in the sense that he can’t be honest to the people he doesn’t respect. However, he’s actually a kind man who will turn protective upon getting relied on.

Sword: Magoroku Kanemoto
Style: Shintou-ryu + self-taught

A hidden Christian from Hizen Province. He lost his mother when he was small, and he was taken in by a Dutch merchant. He spent his childhood in a Dutch company in Hirato. He has a gentle personality, but he also has a unique atmosphere around him—it’s hard to tell what he’s thinking of. He’s secretive, and he puts distance between himself and other people. Due to a certain incident in the past, right now he has abandoned his sword and lives deep in a mountain in Edo.

The son of the Sagihara family, direct vassal of the Fushimi feudal clan in the Yamashiro Province. The Sagihara family is a descendant of Amakuni, a group of blacksmiths that was formed back in the Heian period. They were also guardians who protected the Five Heavenly Swords in the past. After his family was killed, he threw away his status and came to Edo. While he might look like an inexperienced young master, he knows how to get on in the world due to his vagabond journey.

Description

Birthplace: Musashi Province
Sword: Housenka
Style: Self-taught

A samurai with medical knowledge who grew up with a youkai. Right after he was born, he was thrown away to Takao Mountain as his parents couldn’t afford to feed more children. He was taken in by Karula—a tengu who lives in the mountain—who taught him both swordsmanship and medics. He came to Edo in order to find his dream. He’s honest, cheerful and innocent like a child, but due to his innocence, he won’t ever give up on fixing things he judged as wrong. Since he’s inexperienced and doesn’t know much about the world, he tends to cause quarrels with the government officials.
