The real rulers of modern Japan are the Shinogara clan, whose base is in a hidden valley at the base of Mount Fuji. The leader's son, Hayate, is executed for patricide but transfers his soul into the body of his sister, Shiori. Hiding out from Shinogara assassins in Tokyo, Shiori is able to call up her brother's skill in battle but loses a part of her own soul each time she does. As the power struggle continues between several factions of his clan, Hayate must save himself before he kills another member of his own family.

Originally serialized in the Rentaman video magazine, Akai Hayate was later compiled into two 60-minute volumes-the version released abroad. One of a large subset of anime in which the past bubbles to the surface in modern Japan, including writer Yamazaki's own Takegami, it features Genocyber-creator Ohata as a guest designer for the MacGuffin "Shadow Armor" over which the ninja are fighting.
