Description: Kyoto - Spring, 1865. At the temple Nishi-Honganji, the Shinsengumi militia is choosing new recruits to become samurai warriors. Commander Isami Kondo and lieutenant Toshizo Hijikata are supervising the recruiting process. Those hoping to be chosen must face off the best man in the militia, Soji Okita. Out of all the men present, only two are chosen: Hyozo Tashiro, a low-level samurai from the Kurume clan, and Sozaburo Kano, a handsome young man whose good looks are bewitching. Tashiro is immediately attracted to Kano. Rigid rules and regulations keep order among this group of men and are the unifying force in the face of adversity... but suddenly, the militia finds itself prey to rumors and jealousies... the fascination that the others hold for the young samurai Kano creates confusion all around.
