“Space-time journalist” Yuichi Sawajima is sent back through time to unravel the mystery of Azuchi Castle, which was built by famous shogun Oda Nobunaga and burned down within 3 years of its completion.

When he time-warps to the year 1582, he crosses paths with a warrior monk wielding a gun that shouldn’t exist in that time period and discovers that history has been altered. He then travels to the “last day” of Azuchi Castle in a last-ditch effort to repair the timeline.
