Saraiya Goyou (2010)
O Ronin Akitsu Masanosuke é um habilidoso e leal espadachim, mas sua natureza ciumenta e difícil fizeram com que ele fosse dispensado pelos lordes que o empregaram. Faminto e sem rumo, ele se torna guarda-costas de Yaichi, o carismático líder de uma gangue chamada "Cinco Folhas". Apesar de perturbado pelas atividades sinistras da gangue, Masa começa a suspeitar que as motivações de Yaichi não são o que parecem ser. Desconsiderando as suspeitas, quanto mais ele se aprofunda no mundo das Cinco Folhas, mais ele se fascina por esses misteriosos e diabólicos foras-da-lei.
