Unknown to history, we protected the country. During that time, we had serious dreams.
It’s 11 years before the resurrection of Orochi, who gets revived once every 300 years. There were people who protected the country, unknown to history. It’s the Yamainu, who were formed just to fight the Orochi. In addition to Tenka of the Kumo family, where Taiko was the teacher, there were Tenka’s sworn friends, Abe no Sosei and Kiiko Sasaki. But because of a certain incident Tenka is leaving the Yamainu and going his own way. Because there was something he couldn’t protect, as long as he was part of the Yamainu. The year is 1879. Orochi has been defeated and under the clear sky of Shiga, the Yamainu and the Kumo brothers reveal the secret of Tenka.
