Orient Visual + Synopsis
Musashi and his companion Kojirou Kanemaki made a pact five years ago that when they grew up, they would become samurai, create a league, and go on demon-slaying adventures. However, things have changed since then. The samurai are despised and discredited as demons are now adored and venerated by society.
Musashi, fearful of showing his ambition to become a warrior, disguises himself as a miner while covertly honing his swordsmanship. Elsewhere, Kojirou abandons his pledge to his old friend, despite being a direct descendant of a samurai. Musashi’s outlook changes after he saves him from a near-death encounter. Kojirou sets out on a voyage with Musashi, still uncertain, in the hopes of discovering his actual feelings.
Against all obstacles, the couple plunges blindly into the mysterious world of beast-slaying, unsure of what awaits them in life. The fifteen-year-old heroes, now mounted on iron horses, vow to rehabilitate the samurai’s shattered name, and rid the world of dark forces. (Geek Impulse Rewrite)
