The story takes place in in the year 1875 in an alternate reality in which the Meiji Restoration never happened. 21 Years earlier, when so-called black ships arrived to demand the Shogunate to open Japan for trade, a large mecha, a so-called Onigami, piloted by a young boy appeared and destroyed the black ships. Some foreign technology did exist though. With the arrival of the steam engine, steam-powered mecha, called Steam Puppets, were created and some groups had acquired cannons.

Nagasaki, 1875: Keiichiro turns out to be the late shogun’s heir. When he is targeted by an assassin, he receives a seal case with the Tokugawa crest, which enables him to awaken his own Onigami, called Susanoo. With Susanoo he has to fight for his own survival and the future of Japan.
