Kokaku's quest to find the hottest chili pepper takes him to Edo, but instead what he discovers is that he holds no reputation within the city. If he wants to get things done and carry out justice like a true hero, he'll have to do it the old fashioned way: with a good whopping! Things don't go as planned when Shikki appears and their ideologies continue to clash, not to mention their swords! Being the hero isn't always easy, and sometimes those that need help are the ones closest to you.
