About this product
- Description<b>A historical romance set in the time of Rurouni Kenshin!</b> Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences rated teen plus. In the 1860s in Japan, a new era is dawning. During this time fraught with violent social upheaval, samurai of all walks of life flock to Kyoto in the hope of joining a band of warriors united around their undying loyalty to the Shogunate system. This group became one of the greatest (and most infamous) movements in Japanese history...the Shinsengumi! Hijikata decides to make use of Kamiya's feminine features and sends him out dressed as a woman on a spy mission. Her assignment: to ascertain the whereabouts of the torious enemy leader Sakamoto Ryoma. Soji, left in the dark about the secret mission, sets off to find Kamiya. The two get more than they bargained for when they come face-to-face with the enemy himself!
