Burdened by the responsibilities that come with being the future king, Taichi left the palace and went into hiding. Then one day, Taichi saves the life of a mysterious boy named Jiei. This boy has a golden shadow and came from a faraway land.
In this country, foreigners are immediately beheaded. But Taichi takes Jiei back to his house, and asks his reason for coming to this land. Jiei wraps his hands around Taichi's neck and says, "I have come to kill you." But what Jiei takes instead are Taichi's lips!
