To The Frontlines
1st July, 2017

Tsukumogami brought forth by a saniwa sage—these are the "Sword Warriors."

Izuminokami Kanesada departs to the Bakumatsu era with new recruit Horikawa Kunihiro while pursuing the Time Retrograde Army, who have stolen a certain cargo capable of changing history. After narrowly fulfilling their mission, the two receive a new directive.

"The Time Retrograde Army will appear within the three year time span of the Bunkyuu era, in a certain feudal castle town."

Armed with this limited information, Izuminokami Kanesada and Horikawa Kunihiro head out to intercept the new enemy forces. However, the retrograde army's numbers overwhelm the two, leaving them in a dire predicament.

Then in front of the pair, their master—their saniwa sage—materializes.

Commander
8th July, 2017

Izuminokami's group chase the Time Retrograde Army towards the castle, joined by the saniwa, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, and Tonbokiri. However, while running ahead of the group, Mutsunokami comes upon the bodies of castle samurai, slain at the hands of the Time Retrograde Army.

Unable to discern the Time Retrograde Army's true motives in their attack on the castle's surroundings, the team decides to continue their investigation in that era without delay.

The saniwa assigns Izuminokami Kanesada, Horikawa Kunihiro, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, and Tonbokiri as the Second Unit, with Izuminokami Kanesada appointed as captain.

Master's Orders
15th July, 2017

An explosion aboard the anchored steamship causes chaos at the harbor.

Even as he manages to rescue survivors within the ship, Mutsunokami's frustration over the many more he couldn't save boils over. As captain, Izuminokami calmly admonishes the emotional Mutsunokami. Following a hastily organized plan, the Sword Warriors of the Second Unit split up. With the roushi wanting to drive out foreigners, Izuminokami suspects that the Time Retrograde Army plans to use them to their advantage and sends two groups to spy on the roushi's movements.

But as Mutsunokami listens to the roushi's thoughts, he begins to feel conflicted.

Then, the final Sword Warrior of the Second Unit appears.

The Second Unit has returned to the Citadel. Although they succeed in protecting the meeting, Izuminokami and Tonbokiri sustained heavy injuries from their battle with the Time Retrograde Army. Tonbokiri’s life-threatening injuries from fighting the Ootachi are so serious that even with the Saniwa’s care he remains in a comatose state.

As they head to the supposedly peaceful capital to discover the Time Retrograde Army's goal, they hear rumors of a street slasher terrorizing the town who hides his face behind a demon mask.

8 歴史を守る
Protect History
19th Aug, 2017

After eliminating the unknown street slasher, the First Unit remains in the capital instead of returning to the citadel to do what they can for the innocent people drawn into the Time Retrograde Army's attacks, an idea by Yamanbagiri's group to help innocent victims affected by the lives they couldn't save.

Meanwhile, Izuminokami continues to contemplate the meaning behind protecting history, and through his own will rather than his Master's, calls upon the Sword Warriors of the Second Unit to fight with him once more. After receiving a new mission from the Saniwa, the Second Unit heads out with renewed determination.
