After these cruel murders, Ogami renounces his chivalry with an ardent wish to resuscitate the Ogami clan and take revenge upon the Yagyu. This story is about his various adventures as he departs on a journey as an assassin.

Watch as they break through the crisis and solve the case with the dynamic swordplay of Itto Ogami’s Suio Ryu (a style of Japanese swordsmanship) and the strong affection between father and son nurtured under severe circumstances.
