Overall thoughts: Not for those who get emotionally attached to characters

Set in the 1600s, with a no hostilities pact between the ever known Kouga and Iga ninja clans (shout out to Shintaro – The Samurai) keeping them from destroying one another in an explosion of generations hatred and bloodlust. The stage is set when it is determined that one of the sons of Hidetada Tokugawa is to be the next shogun and that which of the two would be decided based on a war between the Kouga and the Iga. And then we meet our “Romeo and Juliet”, Gennosuke and Oboro, a couple arranged to be bound by marriage in an attempt to bring peace between the two clans.
