During the bakumatsu time of unrest, there was a feared warrior, named Hitokiri Battousai...
Things are changing in Japan as a day trip out to Yokohama proves to a surprised Kenshin and group as they witness a group of foreigners making trouble near the docks. It doesn't make for a good impression of foreigners for the Japanese crowd, and when a young Japanese girl (Takatsuki Tokii) asks them to please be a bit more considerate, the foreign seamen make a bit of trouble for the girl. However, one of Tokii's acquaintances steps in to stop the rampaging foreigners; or at least until the police arrive at the scene. Having to make a quick retreat with the coming of the police, Kenshin and Shigure Takimi have to run off quickly. Who exactly is Shigure, and why does his name seem to ring a bell to Kenshin? Then again, why is Saito in Yokohama warning Kenshin not to get involved with Shigure?
There is a lot of unrest in Yokohama as a group of fighters attack the British Foreign compound destroying the house there. The police were unable to stop the fighters and as a result the foreigners decide to move headquarters to Tokyo, but will that help matters any?
Who exactly was Shigure and why does his name and the name Takatsuki seem to be familiar to Kenshin, bringing back memories from the Bakumatsu period?... and who was Takatsuki Gentatsu?
