The content below is entirely editable.

An out of work samurai in a depressed economy ends up working as a yojimbo/bodyguard for a gang of criminals and rogues called the Five Leaves gang.

Based on a manga by Natsume Ono, House of Five Leaves focuses on Akitsu Masanosuke, a masterless samurai. Despite being skilled and loyal, his naive mentality led to being dismissed from his previous lord. He spends time attempting to find work, but his honor and pride keep him from taking the day laborer work (the only kind that is available in their depressed economy.)

Hungry and depressed, he stumbles across a charismatic man named Yaichi, who hires Akitsu as his personal bodyguard. Of course, not all is as it seems. Akitsu quickly realizes that his boss is not the noble figure figure is a criminal, and he hired Akitsu to protect him while he extorts ransom money for a kidnapping. Although initially perturbed, his desperation and interest in the charismatic Yaichi pull him further down the rabbit hole, joining the Five Leaves gang.
