In a world where history took a different path, modern Tokyo is a corrupt, isolated city where corporate soldiers and idealistic militants battle with swords on the neon-lit streets.

Through this storm of blood stride two master swordsmen, each driven by a terrible purpose. One, to avenge the murder of his bride-to-be. The other, to take back the dream that was denied him.

Winter has ended. Spring has begun. The flowers blooming crimson will guide the two warriors to their destiny.

And nothing but corpses will be left in their wake.
