Samurai Jintetsu's existence changed forever when he died and was resurrected in a new armor-plated body. Now the cyborg assassin travels the open road, trying to escape the painful memories of his past life.
Then he meets Ayame, a female drifter who just might understand his plight. She, too, is haunted by her past. Will she make the ultimate sacrifice to save a loved one in peril? The past also catches up with Haganemaru, Jintetsu's high-tech talking sword, when a gorgeous moving "doll" named Tamayura comes back into his life. She may be involved in a series of grisly murders, but will Haganemaru's love for her stop him from finding out the truth?
