hat is morality? What is love? Feared as a “demon” and an assassin, YOSHIMURA Kan’ichiro is said to have been the strongest member of the Shinsen-gumi, a special military force designed to protect the shogun. This tale recounts the life of a samurai who was reviled as a miser for hoarding the things he loved, and who killed without letup for the people he loved. ASADA Jiro and NAGAYASU Takumi have crafted a new legend about the already legendary Shinsengumi.
