Shinmen Takezo is a young man who is destined to become the legendary sword-saint, Miyamoto Musashi--perhaps one of the most renowned samurai of all time. For now, Takezo is a cold-hearted killer who will take on anyone in mortal combat to make a name for himself. This is the journey of a wild young brute who strives to reach enlightenment by way of the sword--fighting on the edge of death.
