Plot

After the fall of the Tokugawa shogunate, Hokkaido becomes home to pioneers looking to build new lives for themselves. One of these men, Jubee Kamata, is now living a quiet secluded life in Hokkaido with his children.

Jubee was once a famous assassin in Kyoto who killed at the behest of the Edo government. After the decisive Battle of Hakodate, he slipped away and fled to the north to escape the new government. Ten years ago, he gave up his sword for his late wife, but poverty causes him to be lured out of retirement by a particularly large bounty.
