In the final years of the Tokugawa shogunate era in Japan, Kenshin Himura is a teenage boy fighting as a Meiji hitokiri, an assassin who slays high-ranking officials of the Tokugawa regime using the formidable sword style of Hiten Mitsurugi. During one of his slayings, a mysterious young woman named Tomoe Yukishiro witnesses it while in a drunken state. Passing out, Tomoe is brought with Kenshin to the Takeda clan house where the head lord asks Tomoe to be Kenshin’s ‘sheath.’ She is given the task of controlling Kenshin’s killing spree against the Tokugawa clan. But, can Tomoe help soften Kenshin after the years of tragedy and bloodshed he endured?
