Leaving the distant isle where he and his father studied samurai skills, Yaiba Kurogane comes home with his animal friends-a tiger and a vulture. He stays with his father's old adversary, Raizo, and Raizo's cute daughter, Sayaka, enrolling in her high school. Here he has to face school kendo champion Takeshi Onimaru, possessor of a demonic sword. Yaiba goes into the mountains to learn from ancient sword master Musashi (see Young Miyamoto Musashi) and gets not just new skills but also a magic sword of his own, the legendary Sword of the Thunder God. All he has to do is stay true to the samurai spirit within him and collect seven magic spheres to enhance his sword's power, and then he can vanquish all evil. But he and Takeshi aren't the only people with conquest in mind. Princess Moon, the Thunder God's old adversary, is out to conquer Earth, and Yaiba and Takeshi must forget their quarrel and unite to save the world. Adapted from the first successful manga by Conan the Boy Detective-creator Gosho Aoyama, Yaiba has many similarities with its smarter younger brother, mixing action, drama, and humor.
